Kill the cravings!

I have tried uncountable breakfast menues to aid in weight loss on a low calorie (1,200/day) diet. With most breakfast menues the hunger pangs show up about 10:00.
I finally realized that I needed more protein in my breakfast to stave off hunger pangs throughout the day.
My favorite breakfast is sort of a southwest omelet. I saute diced onions, bell peppers, chopped mushrooms and diced ham or turkey (the thin sliced, packaged kind from the grocery store).
Once these ingredients are cooked to my desire, I crack in one egg and stir until the egg is fully cooked.
While those ingredients are cooking I pop a corn tortilla (50 calories) into the microwave for 45 seconds to warm it up without overcooking and shrinking.
Finally I spoon all the cooked egg, vegetable and meat ingredients onto the tortilla and eat it like a taco.
This provides a large, filling breakfast with less than 200 calories, depending on the amount of protein (ham or turkey) you include.
For a little extra sizzle shake into the saute some crushed red pepper.
