1 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 low-carb wraps or tortillas

5 ounces spinach
½ yellow bell pepper (sliced thinly)
1 cup shredded cheese
STEP 1 In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together 6 large eggs and milk. Season to taste with pepper.

This recipe is for 6 breakfast burritos. To reduce the fat and sodium, substitute turkey bacon in place of the pork bacon. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. For longer storage, wrap each burrito in parchment paper, place it in a sealable plastic gallon bag, and keep it in the freezer for up to 3 months.
