Breakfast Wrap

I've seriously neglected my blogging duties lately but I am still following the organic diet and feeling better than ever. I had several people ask me what I eat for breakfast so I thought I'd get back to it with a breakfast blog.

I am a die hard coffee drinker and I used to drink my coffee with milk and LOTS of sugar. Way too much sugar really. I switched my morning beverage to coffee with almond milk and honey. Honey in coffee sounds strange, but it tastes really good. I tried several sugar substitutes (truvia, stevia, etc) but they all tasted overly processed. Honey is a great sweetener and much healthier than any of the alternatives.

Food-wise I usually eat a piece of fruit for breakfast along with a breakfast wrap. The contents of the wrap vary depending on what ingredients I have handy, but today for example I made this:

First I saute some veggies with olive oil. Today I used onions, red bell pepper and tomatoes. Then I mix in one scrambled egg (organic & cage-free mixed with a little almond milk). I usually add chives, cumin, salt & pepper. After the egg is mostly cooked I melt a little cooper cheese on top. 

Also in today's wrap is black beans and rice that I pre-made and sometimes I add refried beans as well. I also top it off with organic salsa when I'm in the mood, but today I did not. 

I stock up on flatbread wraps every week. Today I have the Garden Spinach variety. 

Here are the main ingredients: 
  • Onions
  • Bell Peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Whatever other veggies you like
  • One egg (organic cage-free)
  • Almond Milk (about 1 tbsp) 
  • Black Beans & Rice
  • Cooper or American Cheese (1 slice)
  • 1 wrap
  • Cumin
  • Chives
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Pile everything in the middle, wrap and serve!
