I’m not crazy about tortilla wraps. They are kind of expensive and some have trans fat (bletch!). So, I often use 1 egg and 1 egg white to create a “wrap,” as I do in this recipe.
Packed inside these little suckers are:
- 1/4 cup black beans
- 2 strips turkey bacon, crumbled
- 1 tablespoon hummus
- 1/4 cup spinach
- Pepper to taste
Alongside I had a piece of dry WW toast for some carbs… otherwise, I’d just want to gnaw my arm off in 1 hour. 🙂 I also had a delicious cup of coffee.
The combination of black beans, turkey bacon, hummus, and eggs backs quite a nutritional punch, plus these Protein Egg-rritos are fun to eat! The CRUNCH of the turkey bacon compliments the smooth creaminess of the hummus and black beans. This would be a-ma-zing with some salsa or a dab of sour cream.
I LOVE beans…. first of all, they are CHEAP and can be integrated into every meal. Secondly, legumes (beans and peas) combined with whole grains make a complete protein. Together, beans and whole grains contain all the amino acids that humans need to thrive. My mother, who is a nurse, used to call the combination a “perfect food” when I was growing up.
