Packed with 6 grams of protein and only 70 calories, they provide a variety of essential vitamins and minerals. Once mainly considered a breakfast food, eggs today can be found topping burgers and even pizzas. A great way to use up leftover meat or vegetables is making burritos. Just heat up those leftovers, add some beaten eggs and scramble. Put the mixture in a warmed flour tortilla with a bit of cheese and salsa and you’ve a quick snack or dinner on the go.
