Sprout and hummus burrito

Sprout and hummus burrito, originally uploaded by Lisa Fagg.

Mmmmm! This is just 'drop-dead' good - a flour tortilla (110 calories), two tablespoons of store-bought hummus (75 calories) as many home-grown sprouts as will fit in the burrito (er... maybe 10 calories??) and 2 tablespoons of low-fat cottage cheese (about 50 calories, max) ... well, go figger... maybe 240 calories??? That's 240 calories of goodness! We had one of these for lunch today along with a hard-boiled egg each and a salad of lettuce, tomato and sprouts (approx 2 tablespoons of home-made dressing, each, MAYBE).Mmmmmmmm!!!!!

I'm cutting back on fat and calories for a while. It's Spring, after all - no need to stock up on fat calories to stay warm! My best friend from grad school is coming to visit us in September and she is both a lover of food AND health conscious so I'm looking to develop recipes that are both pretty fricking delicious AND healthy to offer her. So a lot of my posts will reflect my attempt to be more health conscious. So there.
But they won't *all* be that good... :b
