Veggie-Avocado Egg Wrap

Add more color to your diet with this meatless recipe.

This nutritious recipe calls for white button mushrooms, which have been shown to increase fullness more so than meat. You can also mix and match with whatever other varieties you have in the fridge, says Lauren Blake, RD, Columbus, Ohio-based recipe developer and founder of Whole Living Lauren.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup onion, finely chopped
