New Power Breakfast: It's A Wrap
(NAPSA) - For jump-starting the day, nothing beats a well-rounded breakfast to rev you up, mentally and physically. An empty-calorie, sugary breakfast cereal just won't do the trick-there's sure to be an energy crash halfway through the morning. For bonus points, a good breakfast helps curb prelunch cravings that can wreck any diet.
The right food combination makes all the difference; far better to spend a few minutes preparing a delicious, nutrient-packed wrap filled with scrambled eggs, avocado, ham and cheddar.
A hearty breakfast that includes avocados not only fuels morning activities but supplies valuable fiber, cholesterol-lowering "good fats" and nearly 20 vitamins and minerals. Grown in Mexico for centuries and perfected over generations, avocados from Mexico are in season now and deliver unbeatable, rich-tasting flavor that makes good food better.
An appetizing breakfast wrap is an ideal handheld item that allows for multitasking in a typical busy morning schedule either at home or on the road. Make the full recipe for everyone in the house...or downsize it just for yourself.
With a great option like this, there's no need to hit the snooze button!
