Egg, Maple and Red Pepper Wrap
1 egg white
15 ml (1 tablespoon) skimmed milk
15 ml (1 tablespoon) chives, chopped
60 ml (1/4 cup) red pepper, diced
15 ml (1 tablespoon) maple syrup
Salt and pepper
1 small tortilla (15 cm / 6")
In a bowl, whisk the egg, egg white, milk and maple syrup. Season with salt and pepper. Pre-heat a nonstick frying pan over medium heat, then add the egg mixture. Stir continuously with a wooden spoon until the eggs are cooked. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the chives and peppers. Leave to cool for a few minutes. Spread the filling down the centre of the tortilla and roll up tightly.
Eggs with maple syrup? Why not? As well as tasting delicious, maple syrup boosts the amount of carbohydrates in the wrap and therefore makes it a great meal choice before physical activity. This wrap is higher in protein and fat than many pre-workout foods. Give yourself at least an hour or an hour and a half for the food to properly digest before an intense session.
