Cooking Crafty

Today I made two semi-healthy meals at once. For breakfast, I made an egg white & veggie breakfast burrito. Onions, potatos, bell peppers, and egg whites compose it. Add salt, pepper, and low fat cheese, stuff it in a tortilla and you have a super delicious breakfast. Then, take the leftover sauteed onions and peppers, cook some rice and stir it in for a quick delicious lunch!


These ingredients were enough for three burritos and one bowl of rice. If you're a major carnivore (RAWRR) just add some ground turkey or pork sausage. For more of it, use the whole pepper and onion, add more egg whites.
  • 1 potato, peeled and diced. I prefer golden potatos.. but whatever.
  • Half of a yellow onion, diced.
  • Half of a bell pepper, diced.
  • 4 egg whites
  • Tortillas
  • Olive oil (for sauteing)
  • Salt & peppa
Heat skillet, pour a little bit of olive oil in the pan, enough to let the vegetables cook but not enough to cover them. Add diced onions and peppers, saute until soft and golden.

Remove from skillet and save for later. Add potatos to skillet and cook until cooked through.

Once potatos are cooked all the way, add about half of the pepper/onion combination to the skillet with the taters, stir around, and add egg whites. Salt and pepper them and scramble. Reserve the extra sauted peppers and onions for yum yum rice lunch :D

Once egg white scramble is cooked completely, heat some tortillas up in the microwave, or on a dry skillet. Put some shredded cheese on the warm tortillas, lay some especially delicious egg white veggie scramble on top and roll into a burrito!

Mmmmmm *drool*
