Saute zucchini, summer squash, onion, & sweet pepper, then dump in the eggs or egg substitute to scramble with the veggies..
In the summer, I chop a tomato to add after cooking
I use whole wheat or whole multigrain tortillas.
It adds a serving of great tasting vegetables for few additional calories.

Leave the fake ingredients alone. Instead (2) white corn tortillas 100 cal, one scrambled egg divided 78 cal and 2tbs Arriba Roasted Red Salsa 20 cal is better and all natural. At 253 cal, 50 cal less that fake cheese and egg beaters.

Enjoy- Eat smart, eat real, eat right, oh, and exercise- Duane

Hey! Some of us are gluten-intolerant; we HAVE to use CORN tortillas - and you could use more egg whites than yolks to reduce calories and up the protein...I will try this for breakfast tomorrow as I am tired of eating toast from gluten-free bread.

A tiny bit of sliced avocado would also add some good fats to this item...

I made this yesterday and they're really good. To save on more calories you can scramble two egg whites and only one yolk. :D
