Life is starting to return to a bit of normal lately. The holidays are over. My class (although NOT my certification exam) is finished. And I have discovered that sitting and studying while eating Chili Cheese Frito's will cause a very noticeable tightening of the pants. Uffda. The nice thing about falling off the horse is you can dust yourself off and get right back on!
So I rejoined weight watchers on-line and started tracking my food. Today is Day 1 (again) and I found I had quickly forgotten how to eat in a points system. (Guess I wasn't bending it like I thought I was and pretty much just snapped those point rules in half and ran happy happy joy joy crazy with BBQ sauce and all the other little things that REALLY add up!)
So this morning I made myself a really healthy breakfast and I thought I would share it. It was pretty simple and I think the variety I can use in the formula for making it will keep me interested.
|1 serving(s) BrownBerry Sandwiches Thins Multi-Grain|
|1 slice(s) Sargento Ultra Thin Cheddar|
|2 tbsp Pace Chunky Salsa, Medium|
|1/4 cup Egg Beaters Frozen Egg Product, Pasteurized|
Points Plus Value = 5
I sprayed my tiny omelet egg pan with olive oil non-stick spray (I used Pam) and set the heat to medium. (The egg pan is not required - I have it and I love how it fits my bread - Like a healthy McMuffin!) I added the egg beaters and a little salt and pepper. When the eggs were mostly cooked on one side I popped the toast in the toaster. Then I flipped the eggs and let the other side cook. (I flip my pan to cook the other side of the eggs when the eggs are bubbled and mostly cooked. I turn off the heat when I flip it since the eggs are about 90% cooked at this point.) When the toast pops up, I pour the egg disk out of the pan onto one side of the toast, throw a slice of ultra thin Sargento Cheese on the eggs, and top with medium heat Chunky Pace Salsa. Top it with the other slice of toast and enjoy! I had a cup of coffee with fat free creamer and a tablespoon of Mocha coffee creamer (worth the 1 point for me!) and was a happy girl!
There are a lot of 100 calorie sandwich breads like this out on the market now, and lots of varieties of egg beaters. I look forward to throwing some veggies into the eggs in the future too - it will give it even more fill and I will get some veggies in first thing in the morning.
All in all a great start back on the healthy train!
