Breakfast, lately

I am obsessed.

With this breakfast. So much so that I have been eating it days on end.

OK. I've been eating it since Monday but that's still three days in a row, which is a lengthy streak for my first meal of the day. For further blog cred, I will venture to guess that I will eat it tomorrow after my ride on the trainer. [Ow, ow ... did you catch that attempt at accountability. If not, read it here: I will not let Miles interrupt my ride on the trainer. I. Will. Not.]

The great thing about this breakfast, which by the way is an egg "white"-veggie wrap, is that it's easy to prepare, full of good things and incredibly filling. If I was [still] one to put ridiculous, pageview label grabbing names on things, I would call it healthy and a power meal.

But I won't. Rather, I'll give you the basics.
  • Flatout Light Sundried Tomato Flatbread. These were BOGO at Kroger, and I couldn't resist. I will admit they have a bit of "fakiness" in flavor but it has 90 calories, 9 grams of fiber and 9 grams of protein.
  • 1/2 cup egg whites.
  • 1/2 cup sauteed veggies - I like mushrooms, onions, something green (spinach or broccoli) and tomatoes
  • Laughing Cow Garlic and Herb [or shredded mozzarella]
These take about 10 minutes or so to make but you can prepare them in advance, "flash" freeze them and store them in the freezer. I often make breakfast burritos in bulk for Mark, and a half-hour of time equals three weeks of morning meals for him. As I bought two packages of the Flatouts, I'm likely to do that.

And then I can have a true streak!

What are you eating for breakfast?


  1. I'm such a breakfast creature of habit. (Helps me get out the door faster). I do the same awesome breakfast every day -- 3 egg omelet with kale and jalapenos, some kind of squash or pumpkin (although all summer it was green beans), black coffee. Holds me through a big workout, no GI problems, tastes great every day. A pictorial guide is posted here:

    1. I need to try that omelet! I also need to remember to buy kale at the store. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I'm doing Greek yogurt with oats or granola sprinkled in. Either that or a hard boiled egg or 2.

  3. These look delicious! I love the idea of making them in advance and freezing them.

  4. I've been all about chocolate pomegranate steel cut oats!

  5. Oh that is a good idea! I will admit I tried a Flatout wrap my mom had in the fridge once and declared it tasted like tree bark but I had another and it sort of grew on me…maybe I'll give them a try once more :)

  6. I know what you mean about the fakey taste of the flatouts. I want to like them, but I just don't.

    I like to eat egg sandwiches for breakfast, though right now I'm having oatmeal.

  7. Before I had to go gluten free, I loveddd the flat out wraps! This is such an easy yet delicious and protein packed recipe. Now I use ezekiel bread and it is just as yummy!
