This meal was definitely filling and as always the calories can be cut even more by buying even healthier products such as smaller wheat tortillas, low fat cheese or turkey bacon (I was just using some leftover ingredients from around my house :P ). Happy Eating! :)

Carlee's Homemade Mini Breakfast Wraps

I don't know about most of you, but I often find it really difficult to eat healthy when life gets crazy busy. I like to make things ahead of time to take on the go that are simple, healthy, low in calories AND DELICIOUS. These mini breakfast wraps are are definitely one of my favorite pre-prepared meals--clocking in at only 260 calories. I usually will eat one or two fresh then freeze the rest of them for those mornings I'm running a little bit late :P Ingredients:

  • Eggs (and milk for fluffy eggs)
  • Cheese
  • Tortillas

You can also watch me struggle to film myself making them on my Day 17 video. lol :P
