I created my own egg wrap recipe! This one is an easy vegetarian meal!
The changes that I made included using egg whites ONLY, a whole wheat wrap and a variety of colourful vegetables. Usually I would try multiple vegetarian recipes around this time because I fast for lent. This one provided a healthy balance for me to get my complex carbohydrates, protein and vegetable sources!
Egg white benefits:
- no cholesterol
- no fat
- low calories
- good protein source
Whole wheat wrap:
- high dietary fibre
- can help to reduce blood sugar spikes
- can reduce the risk for chronic diseases
- positive effect on blood sugar levels
- high amounts of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber
- rich in antioxidant properties
1 cup vegetables (carrot, tomato, onion, garlic, pimento, chive, celery, bell pepper, cabbage)
1 whole wheat wrap
2 egg whites
optional: mozzarella cheese
Wash and slice favourite vegetables. Separate egg whites and mix in vegetables. Cook in a non-stick frying pan. Toast whole wheat wrap and place the mixture into the wrap and fold to the side. You can add optional low fat mozzarella cheese. Enjoy.
