Today I woke up really hungry, I had a long training yesterday and I think I am still feeling the aftermath. Since today i will rest, I will eat less carbohydrates than in a normal day, since my energy requirements are lower, that way I also get to rid myself of some water and wake up lighter tomorrow, ready for a new week.
So I came up with a low carb breakfast burrito that is simple and delicious and quick and easy to fix.
It is super high in protein and healthy fats and very tasty.
Ingredients (for one):
100 ml. egg whites
1 tbsp oat bran
A pinch of oregano
A slice of parma/serrano ham
1/4 avocado, sliced
1/2 small tomato
2 jalapeño peppers
In a food processor, blend the oat brand and egg whites with the herbs for a few seconds and then make a “tortilla” with it on a non sticky pan.
The oat bran is there to add fiber, it will make the tortilla more consistent but also will help you keep fuller for longer and your blood sugar controlled!
Once this is done, set in a plate and lay your other ingredients on top. If you want the vegetarian option you can substitute the ham for humus and it will be just as delicious.
Sprinkle with lemon or lime juice and roll. Voila. Easy, nutritious, good for you and all the other stuff… and only 150 cals. You can complement this breakfast with some fresh fruit or yogurt. If it is a dinner, best to have it with a salad because fruit has too much sugar before bed 😉
