Your usual breakfast of Cheerios or yogurt is a wimp compared to this dish chock full 'o healthful ingredients that you may not consider for your first meal of the day!
Huevoes are fat-burning, calorie-blasting and metabolism boosting. Take a cue from south of the border breakfast food and the scale might turn south too with this super weight-loss dish.
Here's how this dish works it's magic with it's ingreeds...
Eggs -I know the pastries in the pantry are calling your name, but the fridge is where you're going to find the jumpstart to your weight loss and health goals today. One study found that women who ate two eggs for breakfast ate less in the next 36 hours than those who ate a bagel of the same number of calories.
Beans -They're rarely eaten for breakfast, but they should be! Beans contain the digestive hormone cholecystokinin which acts as an appetite suppressant, possibly because it keeps food in your stomach longer. One study found that 8 men who ate beans at lunch had cholecystokinin levels twice as high as those who didn't. A long term benefit: beans can help lower cholesterol.
Olive Oil -the stuff your tortilla will often be fried in helps you burn calories! One study found that women who ate muesli sprinkled with olive oil for breakfast experienced an increase in their metabolic rate. Doesn't olive oil on a crispy tortilla with low fat cheese sound tasty?
Hot Red Pepper -Keep a handkerchief nearby to wipe the sweat off your face, but don't skip on these. One study found that women who ate breakfast foods with red pepper ate less for lunch than they normally would. The trick could be in the capsaicin, a natural appetite suppressant.
