Spinach plays the part of lettuce in this BLT breakfast. Get ready for a super-tasty morning burrito that's ready in mere minutes!

1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
Dash each onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1/4 cup diced tomato, patted dry
1 tbsp. precooked real crumbled bacon (like the kind by Oscar Mayer)
1 medium-large high-fiber flour tortilla with 110 calories or less (like the kinds by La Tortilla Factory)
1/2 cup spinach leaves
1 tbsp. chopped scallions

Spray a large microwave-safe mug lightly with nonstick spray. Add egg substitute, spices, and cheese wedge, breaking the wedge into pieces as you add it. Microwave for 1 minute.

Add tomato and bacon to the mug, and gently stir. Microwave for 1 minute, or until scramble is just cooked. Set aside.

Lay tortilla flat on a microwave-safe plate, and warm in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Lay spinach leaves horizontally across the center of the tortilla, and evenly top with the scramble. Sprinkle with scallions.

Wrap tortilla up by first folding one side in (to keep filling from escaping), and then rolling it up from the bottom. Bite right into the open side!

Not only is this recipe a glorious little piece of guilt-free junk-food fusion, but it's also quick 'n easy to assemble. Double whammy!

1 frozen meatless hamburger-style patty with 100 calories or less (like Boca Original Vegan Veggie/Meatless Burger)
2 corn taco shells (flat-bottomed shells, if available)
1 slice fat-free American cheese
1/4 cup shredded lettuce
4 hamburger dill pickle chips
2 tbsp. diced tomato
2 tbsp. diced onion
Optional: ketchup, mustard, and fat-free mayonnaise


Place burger patty on a microwave-safe plate and microwave until thawed, about 1 minute. Chop into bite-sized pieces. Microwave until hot, about 30 seconds.

To assemble, equally distribute patty pieces between the 2 shells. Tear cheese slice in half, and place 1 half in each shell.

If you like, top with any of the optional condiments (or your guilt-free burger toppings of choice). Evenly distribute lettuce, pickle chips, tomato, and onion between the shells. Dig in!

LOOK! It's a fruity, fast, and fun salad for two. Totally unique and completely delicious...

8 cups chopped romaine lettuce (about one 12-oz. bag)
1 medium yellow peach
1 medium pear
20 dry-roasted shelled pistachios
6 oz. cooked and chopped skinless lean chicken breast
1/2 cup blueberries
1/4 cup fat-free or low-fat raspberry or balsamic vinaigrette

Evenly distribute lettuce between two large plates or bowls.

Chop the peach and the pear, discarding the pit and the core. Evenly distribute the chopped fruit between the plates or bowls. Roughly chop pistachios, and add those as well.

Top each salad with 3 oz. chicken and 1/4 cup blueberries. Drizzle 2 tbsp. dressing over each salad, or serve it on the side. Enjoy!
