They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After 10-12 hours of fasting, you are literally "breaking the fast," with your first bite in the morning.
This breakfast burrito recipe contains all four of the main food groups: dairy, lean protein, grains and vegetables. The beauty of it, however, is that you can tweak your meal preparation to fit your unique tastes and dietary requirements.

1/4 c. milk
4 whole wheat tortillas
1/2 c. shredded cheddar or monterey jack cheese
4 oz. lean ham or turkey, chopped
1 chopped tomato
salt and pepper to taste
In a medium sized bowl, stir eggs, milk and ham or turkey together with a fork. Spray a fry pan with non-stick coating and add eggs mixture. Cook eggs over medium-low heat, stirring continuously until eggs are done and ham or turkey cooked through. Stir in grated cheese. Place equal amounts of the egg mixture in the center of each tortilla and sprinkle chopped tomatoes. Add salt and pepper if you wish. Fold the bottom of the tortilla up about 1/4, then fold in the sides and roll. Serve with fresh tomato salsa, sour cream, or hot sauce, if desired.
