Fitness is more than exercising. It can be said that it’s a way of life because it encompasses both exercise and nutrition. In general, people who are fit, exercise frequently and take care of their eating habits. This allows them certain whims, such as eating healthy pastries—both tasty and guilt-free.

  • 1.7 ounces of quick oats
  • 5 egg whites
  • Salt
  • Oregano
  • 7 tablespoons of skimmed milk
  • Low-fat York ham
  • Low-fat cheese

  2. Add the oats, egg whites, a pinch of salt, and oregano. You can change the oregano for another spice if you prefer. Mix all of the ingredients well.
  3. Heat up a frying pan and add a dash of oil. Once hot, pour a half portion of the mixture as if you were cooking a pancake.
  4. When the empanada is half cooked, place the ham and cheese on the center, avoiding the edges.
