Fit + Fab Recipe: Breakfast Tostada

Breakfast Tostada

Eggs, black beans and avocado are combined with fresh salsa and a corn tortilla for this delicious, healthy twist on the classic breakfast burrito. A healthy – and tasty – way to start the day! I’m all about balanced meals – and that means you have to include some carbohydrates, like the tortilla in my delicious Breakfast Tostada. While both corn and flour tortillas provide carbohydrates, corn tortillas are higher in fiber and nearly 70 percent lower in fat and sodium than flour. And corn is higher in magnesium which contributes to healthy muscles!

1 whole egg plus 1 egg white

½ cup cooked black beans

1 corn tortilla

¼ of an avocado

4 grape tomatoes, halved or diced (or 2 Tbsp. salsa)

2 tablespoons chopped red onion (optional)

⅛ teaspoon salt


Coat a small skillet with oil spray and heat over medium heat. In a bowl, whisk together the whole egg and egg white. Add the eggs to the skillet and scramble until fully cooked. Add the beans and salt and cook until warmed through. Warm the tortilla in a dry skillet. Top the tortilla with the egg-bean mixture and avocado. Sprinkle the tomatoes and onion (if using) on top.
