Healthy Breakfast Burrito

buritto

You’ll Need:

2 Tbsp Salsa

1/4 cup chopped mushrooms

1/2 Cup Egg Whites (if making your own, takes about 3 large eggs)

1/2 cup chopped red, yellow and green bell peppers

1/4 cup spinach

1/2 cup chicken or steak (you choose what kinda burrito you want! ) – make sure this is already cooked!

1/2 of an avocado, chopped up

1 low-carb or gluten free tortilla.

In a medium skillet, pour a little olive oil in pan and let heat up. Cook up the egg whites in a “scrambled” style and then add veggies and meat, mix together till veggies begin to break down a little. Once cooked, wrap ingredients in a low-carb or gluten free tortilla. You can either add the salsa and avocado on top, or put it inside the burrito. ( I like to add it to the top so it seems like a smothered burrito!)

Note: I like switching up the veggies too… sometimes ill add a little cauliflower, onion, maybe some sautéed carrots or squash. Get creative! The more creative you get, the less bored you’ll get!

And if anything doesn’t fit into the tortilla ill put it on top too hahah. =)

Enjoy !

 

Healthy options at Chili’s Restaurant

YAY CHILIS IS SO GOOD! What do you eat? What’s healthy, what look healthy and what really isn’t….. They do have a menu which is “guiltless” which is supposed to be “healthier options”.. but we will look into that too….

Umm so Lets just say all their appetizers are around 1,000 calories along lol. So maybe we should all just pass on that. The chips with salsa is 480, so that would be your best bet if you really wanted one.

So now that we’ve decided all the appetizers aren’t really that great… on to the actual meals!

  • Guiltless Grill Asian Salad
  • Guiltless Grill Caribbean Salad
  • Southwestern Vegetable Soup
  • Chicken And Green Chili
  • Grilled Salmon with Garlic and Herbs
  • The grilled Chicken Fajitas aren’t bad but only if you skip on the tortillas , or see if you can get big lettuce wraps instead.
  • Guiltless classic Sirloin
  • Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Veggies
  • Mango Chili Tilapia

Don’t get anything fried or beer-battered

The ribs (which is what they are famous for) – No go!

The burgers- Not so much

The Perfect Chipotle Salad

So I personally think this is the perfect salad.. around 400 calories.. and packed with protein.

chipol

Romaine Lettuce

Black Beans

Fajita veggies

Brown Rice (ask them to go light on the rice)

Tomato Salsa

Guacamole

And if you want it spicier … The green salsa only has 15 calories! Plus they have tobacco! YUMM (I like the Milder Jalapeno)

Apple and Almond Butter Wrap

applealmod

You’ll need:

Apple of choice, I like gala and golden delicious..

pumpkin pie spice OR cinnamon (choose one) 1/4 tsp.

1 serving of Almond butter (usually about 1 tbsp.)

1   8- inch gluten free tortilla

 

Slice you your apple of choice, sprinkle cinnamon or pumpkin spice on to apple (if you find the apple too hard to chew, you can sauté it in a little cooking spray before you add the spices, that will make it softer)

spread Almond butter onto tortilla, place apple inside and roll it up!

SIMPLE< EAST< FAST< AND ON THE GO BREAKFAST! =) Enjoy.
