*For lower calories or lower cholesterol, you can use egg substitutes or egg whites instead.
directions: Turn your oven on to the broil setting. Scramble your eggs with a splash of milk, using a fork to whip some air into them. Cook in a skillet with a bit of non-stick cooking spray, adding in diced tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, peppers -- whatever you have on hand. While the eggs are cooking, put your tortilla on a cookie sheet and broil it for five minutes or so, depending on your oven, until warmed through. When your eggs are done, spread them in the middle of the tortilla and wrap up like a burrito. Top with salsa, sour cream or shredded cheese if you like. That's it!
For a fruit tray, add a few things that folks may not have tried before -- grapples, starfruit, papaya or clementines, to name a few. Do the standard fruit or veggie tray in a creative and different way, and you'll soon discover that eating well doesn't have to be a bore.
