The recipe below makes a great low-carb ham-and-cheese burrito packed with protein. It's perfect for those on the journey to building muscle, and it's incredibly easy to make. I like to make the full recipe and eat it throughout the week after a nice, long workout.
We use ham instead of tortillas as the wrap to hold this burrito together. We saute onions and garlic in butter until tender, then add the eggs and cook to a soft scramble. After melting in cheese, we turn off the heat and stir in spinach. Tomatoes add just the right amount of acidity. It's all wrapped up using the ham, then thrown into the broiler to slightly toast.

Cream cheese is the perfect ingredient when you want to add moisture, fat and amazing flavor to any dish. It works well in low-carb diets because it's so thick and holds up with other ingredients well.

Cooking a healthy meal doesn't have to take all day. The Rotisserie chicken is a lifesaver because it's already cooked and it's packed full of flavor. Using a rotisserie chicken is a great way to save time when you want to make something healthy.
