Healthy Brekkie



Bet you've heard of the phrase "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day". Well, it is! A good healthy, hearty breakfast never fails to start your day in a good way and makes you more energetic even. Not mentioning that people who eat breakfasts consume less calories for the rest of the day which in turn results in weight loss! So if you are looking to lose some flab, eat your breakfast *Wink*

My daily breakfast usually consists of cooked oats with honey and the occasional packet of raisins. Last Friday night, however, Qin and I were shopping in Carrefour when we spotted this.



Tortilla wraps! It looked pretty interesting so into the grocery basket it went!

So for the next three days, this was what I had for breakfast. Yup, I didn't know what tortillas were supposed to contained so I just threw in some eggs, spinach, onions, tomatoes and topped it up with some Lingham Chilli Sauce and Dijonnaise mustard.



Ahhh, Dijonnaise mustard, a 50% mix of mayo and Dijon mustard but without the fat. A worthy indulgence.

Today, I also added semi-dried tomatoes which went suprisingly well with the tortilla! Adding some of the slightly sourish yet flavoursome red pieces simply made my breakfast even better.



Unfortunately *tears rolling down cheeks*, after three days of tortillas my skin broke out in rashes. Its got to be the wheat! Darn, now I've to cut back a little...

Hey yo YD, your tortilla looks great. Sorry to hear about your rash, you're allergic to wheat/gluten products?

I would have stuffed my tortilla wraps with chili con carne, chicken strips, minced beef and lots of cheese and salsa but your healthy version looks good too heh.

3 days later? Sounds like a "Delayed Type Hypersensitivity Reaction", i.e. your classic Type IV allergy. At least you're not getting a Type I anaphylactic shock but better go easy dude because once your mast cells are stimulated by an initial allergen, it's always possible that it could potentiate a much larger increase in histamine and IgE the next time round.

Greetings Mr. Yummy :D Hmmm...in this case, try to choose the original tortilla. I'll try the Dijonnaise someday.

Usually for tortilla, besides the greesn, we add in the peppercorn ham and also pickles yum yum and I love to have it with my tabasco sauce too :D

Hi Shionge, the dijonnaise mustard is worth a try cause its really good. I'll def look up some original tortilla recipes (when my rashes subside)
