Tortilla toastieTry this low–fat, high–carbohydrate snack to give yourself a boost of energy before you exercise. The wholegrain tortillas will release their energy slowly, so you should notice a difference in keeping energy levels sustained once you have started. Use a good–quality non–stick frying pan so there is no need to use any additional oil. This will keep the fat content and the calories down.

Ingredients (Serves 1)

  • 2 wholegrain tortillas
  • 1 tbsp sundried tomato paste
  • Handful of half-fat Mozzarella, grated
  • 1 slice reduced-salt ham, chopped
  • 1 spring onion, chopped

Method

Heat a non–stick frying pan (there is no need for any oil) over a medium heat.

Place one of the tortillas in the pan and spread the tomato paste over the tortilla. Arrange the ham, spring onion and cheese over the tortilla and cook until the cheese starts to melt.

Place the second tortilla on top, flip the tortilla over and cook for 4–5 minutes.
