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.
