Brinner? Dinfast?

Sometimes I just really don’t feel inspired to cook. Or bake. Or eat anything that isn’t from a bag, frozen container, or box. But now that I’m “eating healthy” or rather, “trying to eat healthy,” I’ll push myself a little harder on nights when I come home from work and just want to stick my face directly into a bowl of popcorn.

One of the easiest ways I find to combat my aversion toward cooking (read: laziness) on these nights is to have breakfast for dinner. Dinner doesn’t necessarily need to be huge, it just needs to be filling. And so Brinner (breakfast/dinner) or Dinfast (dinner/breakfast) was born! The other night I whipped up this little breakfast burrito/breakfast tortilla/fancy egg concoction. It was pretty healthy, simple, and delicious.

Breakfast Burrito/Breakfast Tortilla/Fancy Egg Concoction

2 egg whites
2 breakfast turkey sausage
2 tablespoons salsa
1 whole wheat tortilla
1/2 avocado

1. Separate egg whites from yolks and spray a cooking pan with non-stick spray. Cook your eggs however you like: scrambled, omelette, over-easy whatever suits your style. Cook the turkey sausage according to instructions on the box (I microwaved mine for 55 seconds.)
2. Warm up tortilla (carefully) over a low flame on your stove or heat in a toaster oven.
3. Spread salsa onto the tortilla and add sliced avocado, turkey sausage, and egg.
4. Roll up and enjoy!

**This is just a sample of what you can put in the tortilla. Black beans, cheeses, and even rice could go well in this recipe! Let me know what you guys come up with!
