What is for breakfast? I hear this question every morning, either that or I am hungry. Today it's Egg and Bacon Spinach Wraps. These were super quick and easy to make and the family loved them. With the Freestyle program eggs are 0 points add turkey bacon, a spinach wrap, and some low-fat cheese and you have a breakfast packed with protein to help you feel full longer and vitamins to get you started off on the right foot. 🙂

Spinach Wraps, Which One Do I Use?
A quick search of the internet, or even just using the WW app you will find quite a few different spinach wraps. All wraps are not created equal though. I have done a tad bit of research and I have found that Ole' brand Extreme Wellness Spinach and Herb wraps are only 1 point. The best thing about these wraps isn't that they are 1 point on the Freestyle program but that they taste delicious. They are soft textured and ready to use right out of the package. I have bought some tortillas in the past that needed to be microwaved or warmed up in a skillet before they were usable. It takes less time and fewer steps to create amazing dishes. The fact that they are lower in points than other spinach wraps is an added bonus 🙂
Zero Point Add-Ins
Want to spruce up this breakfast? I have several tasty ideas you will want and crave. Start off with garlic, not just garlic powder which of course you can use but try adding a fresh clove of garlic sliced thin to the skillet and saute it before adding the eggs. Want to add some heat? I add 1-3 tsp of crushed red pepper. Want to get spicy without the heat? I have recently found a local company that makes spices that are amazing, I have been trying out the different combinations and adding them to everything. What is this mystery spice company you ask? MeatDuster.com I added the garlic spicy to make my Egg and Bacon Spinach Wrap truly pop. Try the original or for a truly flavorful option that doesn't add heat, For a flavorful heat shake a little DEATH on there, but be aware this is not for the faint of heart. I love that it has flavor and is not hot just to be hot. Need to check out the Zero Point List? You can find one here with a free printable 🙂
Let's add some delicious veggies to really change up the flavor and texture. Add diced green peppers, or get really fancy and add in a few red or orange peppers to create an appetizing and eye-catching meal. Sauteed mushrooms, matchstick carrots, diced onions, oh my. Smoked paprika, tomatoes, jalapenos, habaneros oh wee now we are getting spicy 🙂 one last zero-point add-in I would recommend is chicken breast the added protein will help keep you full longer and adds a bit of texture to the meal.
