I love food.

   To say that I love food would be an understatement.. I am IN love with food. Food brings people together, makes you happy, is necessary for life, and it is so much fun to make new delicious things. Which is exactly what I did this morning. I was feeling super sluggish, so I wanted to pack a punch in my breakfast and here is what I came up with...

   Meet my delicious Spinach, Onion, Gouda, and egg white breakfast wrap. De-lish! It is so easy to whip up, here's what you need:
- 1/4 c. Egg Whites
- 1/4 c. Frozen Chopped Spinach
- 1/4 c. Chopped Onion
- Light gradeing of Gouda cheese
- Whole Wheat Tortilla

   I try to keep my freezer stocked with frozen veggies. I've heard that frozen veggies pack more nutrients because they are picked at their peak of freshness. So grab your frozen spinach and toss it in a pan with a few tablespoons of Olive Oil. Then add in your onions. Let the onions saute while the spinach softens and breaks apart. Once the spinach and Onion are done add in your egg whites. Salt and Pepper to taste. Warm your tortilla then put your egg mixture in it. Grate a small amount of the cheese right on top of the eggs and the cheese will melt. I add some Cholulah on top as well for a little kick. If you don't want the carbs from the tortilla slice some fresh tomatoes and put them on top of your eggs instead. Super tasty alternative. I love the cold tomatoes on top of the warm eggs. 
    Hope you enjoy!

Food! Glorious food!! Yes, this family has no shortage of healthy eaters! From the beginning you loved to eat, with your 1st birthday meal being a homemade veggie loved any food I put in front of you, until broccoli came into your life. Then you honed your skills at being creative with ways to "hide" certain vegetables making your parents believe you were the perfect child because you ate whatever was made for dinner. Well, I'm thrilled to say that you have turned out practically perfect in spite of the broccoli scandal :)
