Turkey Bacon and Egg White Wrap
The Most important meal of the day is Breakfast. I don't know about anyone else, but I hate eating the same thing day in and day out. I like to change things up a little. My goal is to try to eat healthier and try to drop a few much needed pounds.
I decided that skipping breakfast was out. On days I skipped breakfast I found myself an hour after I got into work,looking for the tray of cookies, or the box of doughnuts that the drug reps would bring. (Then I wonder why I'm unable to loss the extra pounds...) Anyway, I made a commitment to myself that I would try to make a healthier version of breakfast sandwiches. I still get the yummy goodness, but I save myself the extra fat and calories.

Vegetable cooking spray
1 Tablespoon diced onion
1 Slice turkey bacon, chopped into small pieces
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/4 C of egg whites (allwhites)or 2 egg whites

Coat the skillet with cooking spray, Add the onion and bacon and cook for 2 minutes.

Place the egg mixture and tomato on the wrap, sprinkle with cheese then roll.
