After a week of indulgence, I have finally convinced myself I really need to get back on a healthy track. Today, I made this Hearty Tex-Mex Breakfast Burrito for lunch. It was flavorful, filling, and completely satisfying. It was only 369 calories and had a whopping 42g of protein. You may even want to share this with a friend or save half for another meal. You will also love these Tex-Mex mini frittatas, and my nest eggs recipe.
