Carne asada burrito

This Mexican burrito recipe uses an egg white omelette as the “burrito” and is filled with beef, onion and avocado with some salsa and cilantro sprinkled on top.   With a very high protein:energy ratio, it is ideal for maximum satiety weight loss.  

The egg whites provide heaps of bioavailable protein along with B2 and selenium, the steak provides more protein, B3, B6, B12, choline, iron, phosphorus, selenium and zinc, while the salsa and avocado round out the taste and fill in the vitamin A and potassium.
