It’s almost Valentine’s Day, which means stores are filled with isles devoted to candy in red and pink packages. As tempting as it may be, we must stick to our diets and avoid those heart-shaped boxes of chocolate.
I found a low-calorie recipe that would be a perfect breakfast-in-bed treat for your special Valentine. Even if you don’t have a Valentine this year, treat yourself to this savory, yet healthy breakfast quesadilla.
1/2 c. egg substitute
1/2 c. shredded 2% milk fat cheddar cheese
2 soft whole-wheat tortillas
1 T. diced green pepper
1 T. diced onion
vegetable cooking spray
In a skillet, prepare egg substitutes with green peppers, onions, and shredded cheese. Flip once. Cook until done.
Heat tortillas in the microwave for about 30 seconds, until warm. Layer a tortilla, egg mixture and tortilla with cheese on top. Cut into six pieces.
