CHEF and marathon runner Nate Appleman logs 35 miles a week and refuels after a morning run with this easy-to-make dish that’s full of protein, carbs and fibre. ‘This burrito combines my two favourite foods – eggs and avocado,’ he says. One egg has six grams of protein to build and maintain muscle and increase feelings of satiety, while avocado is high in fibre and healthy fats.
Fry the onion and jalapeño in olive oil. When the onion is soft, add the cumin.
Add the beans and stir. When the beans are hot, add the eggs and cook until fluffy. Season with salt. Mix the yoghurt with the lime juice and set aside. Grill the four tortillas until they puff up. Lay tortilllas out and divide the egg-and-bean mixture evenly among them. Top the eggs with an even amount of cheese, avocado and yoghurt.
Add salsa if required, and roll.
