BACON & EGG BREAKFAST WRAPS WITH AVOCADO
These breakfast wraps are filled with bacon & eggs, cheddar cheese, avocado and salsa. This low carb and super easy recipe will keep you full all morning.
3 slices bacon cooked
2 large eggs
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 avocado sliced
1/4 cup salsa
salt and pepper to taste
Cook the bacon in the pan until crisp. Remove, cut in half and set aside. Pour out all but 1 teaspoons of bacon fat. Slice the avocado.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs and half of the cheddar cheese cheese with a fork. Cook the scrambled eggs to your liking and remove from the pan. Season with salt and pepper.
Place the wraps into the hot pan over medium heat (I had to overlap mine just a bit in the middle).
Divide the scrambled eggs and place them on 1/2 of each wrap, not going past the middle. Add the avocado, bacon and remaining cheese. Add 1 tablespoon of water to the pan and cover quickly with a lid. Leave covered for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the bottom of the wraps have browned a bit. Serve with salsa.

Turmeric Cauliflower Egg Skillet
1/2 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 cups cauliflower florets
Squeeze of lime juice
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
Lime juice, for serving
Coriander, for serving
Over medium low heat, add olive oil in an 8 to 10 inch skillet. Add in the onions, followed by the cauliflower. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions and cauliflower are slightly brown and tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Squeeze in the lime juice and scrape up any stuck pieces. Add in the turmeric, ginger, and cayenne (if desired). Cook for 1 minute more, just to warm the ginger.
Create a well in the center. Crack the eggs in the center, reduce the heat to low and cover the skillet with a lid. Cook until the egg whites are set and the egg yolks are at your desired firmness, 8 or so minutes for over-easy eggs, longer for more firm yolks.
Serve with extra lime juice and coriander !
