If you've ever noticed long lines at taco trucks during your morning commute, it's because the breakfast burrito reigns supreme as a portable, satisfying start to the day. Avoid the lines and whip up yours at home where you can control the ingredients. Egg substitute shaves the fat while seasoned black beans load this one up with fiber and protein. A judicious dose of melty cheese lends more yummy goodness. Don't forget the salsa. Use whatever fat-free style you love, or douse your burrito with hot sauce like Cholula or Sneaky Pete's. At home, you can round out the meal with a bowl of cubed fresh melon—cantaloupe, honeydew, or watermelon—tossed with lime juice and chopped fresh mint.


Whole-wheat tortilla(s)

4 medium, (10 -inch each)

  1. Layer the tortillas between sheets of wax paper; microwave on High until warm, 25 seconds.
  2. Spray a medium nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the black beans and chili powder; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Add the egg substitute and cook, stirring frequently, until set, about 3 minutes.
