Spice up Your Morning!

Here is a quick and delicious option to add protein, fiber, and cayenne pepper to your day first thing! Weight loss helpers! Tofu is an awesome protein source to start your day! Additionally, cayenne pepper has been shown to speed metabolism!

Refreshing "Egg" Wraps (Tofu Scramble)

3/4 c tofu, mashed with a fork
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 c salsa (experiment with quantities per your spice-meter)
1 whole wheat tortilla

Mix the ingredients in a microwaveable bowl. Heat for 1-2 min. Fill tortilla with mixture, roll up, and enjoy! Great with a side of fresh fruit! It's surprising how much salsa you can add without it being too spicy.

Salsa is a great way to add veggies, cooked tomatoes for lycopene (cancer prevention, especially prostate), and hot peppers for capsaicin (speeds up metabolism and decreases appetite)!
