Breakfast Taco

Yesterday I posted a picture of my new go to breakfast on my Facebook personal page and like page. I promised that if it got 30 likes I would share the details! Well, I got over 50 so here it is!

Here's what you need:
- 1 egg 
- 1 small corn tortilla
- a little more than 1/2 a cup of fresh spinach
- 1/8 cup shredded cheese
- 2 slices of turkey bacon

Spray your griddle lightly with non-stick spray. Place tortilla, bacon, and spinach on griddle on low to medium heat. Flip tortilla and bacon as spinach cooks.

Once the spinach is about done, crack the egg on top of the spinach

Use a spatula to scramble the egg and spinach together while keeping the egg from running away. 

Once the egg is almost done, sprinkle the cheese over its top.

Here's the secret ingredient missing from the first photo! 

I love spicy food, and this stuff adds the perfect kick without the salt! Shake some on your egg mixture, and then slide it onto your tortilla.

Fold it in half, and your breakfast taco is complete!

Browning the tortilla and cooking the bacon and egg mixtures takes less than 10 minutes!

This is a quick, simple, healthy breakfast at less than 300 calories that is 21 Day Fix approved! One egg and 2 slices of turkey bacon equals one red. The tortilla is one yellow. The spinach is 1/2 a green, and the cheese is 1/2 a blue.

Maybe you're where I was

Exactly one year ago this weekend, I got to meet one of my heroes! That's her hand on my shoulder, and that's why I'm grinning so big in this picture! But when I saw this picture, I had to duck into the restroom to cry. That me on the left was me at my heaviest, and I thought there was nothing I could do to change it. I bought into the lie that because of my health and genetics this was as good as it could get and should prepare for it to only get worse. 

But the me today, the me on the right.... She kicked that jacked up mindset to the curb! I made some significant life changes, worked my tail off, and have lost almost 40 lbs so far! I feel amazing, my energy is through the roof, and my health has done a complete turnaround!! 

And that's just the physical changes! Things have changed emotionally and spiritually, too! It's hard to give God and your family your best when YOU aren't at your best day after day. I missed out on so much and robbed my family of memories and God of honor because I wouldn't take care of myself. 

I truly believe God has blessed me with a second chance to love Him and my family with my heart, mind, and soul by taking care of the body He's given me. 

Maybe you're where I was and want to be where I am... Drop your email in the comments below if you're ready to get serious about taking care of yourself!
