I’m currently on a mini diet: the sensible kind where I consume less carbs in the day and do 30 minutes of light cardio exercise. Come dinner time, I will eat a low or no carb meal like the above egg rolls. I don’t believe in crash or fad diets as I think they harm the body in the long run, and sound awfully unbalanced (for example, totally eliminating carbs or consuming cabbage soup for a week!) The failure rate of those diets are high as well as one tend to give up prematurely. To me, a diet is more like a permanent lifestyle change, and it has to be fun just like these sunny looking ham and cheese egg rolls. I paired my egg rolls with miso soup and/or a simple vegetable side dish or served in a bento box. This recipe only requires three main ingredients – egg, ham and cheese.

There is no need to season the egg mixture as the ham and cheese are salty on their own. If you are concerned about the fat content of cheese, you can choose low-fat cheese or try out my other tamagoyaki recipe with carrots, shallots and spring onions.
