How can you make a healthy breakfast taco?

ANSWER

Scramble one egg to get 6 grams of protein. Throw in some bell pepper for minerals and vitamin C, and fold it into a corn tortilla if you want to keep gluten levels low. Top with fresh salsa (tomatoes are anti-inflammatory) and a slice of avocado for B vitamins and "good" fats.
