  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 sprouted-grain tortilla or coconut wrap
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 slice of avocado
  • ⅛ cup salsa
  • ¼ cup broccoli florets
  • ⅛ cup spinach
  • ⅛ cup chopped onion
  • ½ tbsp garlic

Preparation (Serves 1):

Prep Your Burrito Base:

  1. Heat Up the Pan: Get your cooking started by heating some oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat.
  2. Sauté the Veggies: Add your chopped vegetables (except spinach, if using) to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes until they’re slightly softened. Aim for a tender-crisp texture.
  3. Spinach Speed Round (Optional): If you’re including spinach, toss it in the pan for just the last 30 seconds or so of cooking. It wilts quickly, so you don’t want to overcook it.

Scramble Those Eggs:

  1. Egg Power: Once the veggies are prepped, push them to one side of the pan. Crack your eggs (or use pre-measured egg whites) into the cleared space. Scramble the eggs until they’re cooked through, stirring frequently for even cooking.

Assemble and Enjoy:

  1. Warm Up the Wrap: While the eggs cook, grab your tortilla and heat it up in a dry pan or microwave for a few seconds to make it more pliable.
  2. Fill ‘Er Up: Spread the cooked egg mixture out in the center of the warmed tortilla. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Avocado Time: Add a creamy slice of avocado for healthy fats and deliciousness.
  4. Salsa Fiesta (Optional): Finish it off with a drizzle of your favorite salsa for a touch of heat and extra flavor.
  5. Wrap it Up! Fold or roll your burrito however you like and enjoy!
