What's For Breakfast

Before returning to The South Beach Diet Supercharged (with all that pasta last week, I'll be on Phase One forever), I rarely ate breakfast....just some coffee and good to go. No wonder I had headaches, no wonder that spare tire around my waist. You'll have to read the book for the scientific explanation, but breakfast, as we all know is the most important meal of the day.

While I do love hard boiled eggs...they get boring after a while; frittatas...take too long for weekdays; and omelets...too much concentration at 6:30A.M..., I thought I'd share my new favorite - the scrambled egg wrap. Multi grain wraps slightly warmed in the microwave, surround eggs scrambled plain, with goat cheese, feta crumbled or shredded provolone; a little something spread on the wrap like roasted red pepper pesto, classic basil pesto, or what you see peeking out in the photo...Puerto Rican Ajilimojili . Something green like baby arugula or spinach adds a nice texture and flavor too.

Seriously, breakfast will never be boring again.

I really like my eggs scrambled with tomatoes and feta. Mmmm. Bulgarian is my favorite. It is softer and saltier. And I put it in a wrap to go.

I want mine scrambled with full fat brie laid on top, side of sliced tomatoes, please!

hot sauce is great in these as well. I'm a big fan of these as in my brother.

When I was expecting, I developed gestational diabetes (because I am OLD!)and was always looking for low-carb, high protein things to eat. Your roll-up would have been great. Instead, I'd resort to spreading a large slice of Swiss cheese with cream cheese, and topping it with a fried egg every morning. A roll-up of sorts, but yours looks and I'm certain tastes better.

Seriously, that looks great. I'd pay money to have that served to me in a restaurant.
