I threw this together the other night quite randomly and I LOVED it!!! 

I started by scrambling some eggs, one whole egg and two whites to be exact, with some veggies, brocolli, onion and zuchinni to be exact, again.  After this was all scrambled and cooked I threw it over 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and topped with 1/2 T. real maple syrup.  The syrup gave it a yummy breakfast sweetness.  Brandon topped his with salsa so whichever way you want to go with it will be fantastic!

This is a great breakfast when you want something light.  I used 3 egg whites.  While the egg whites are cooking I add my veggies, usually peppers and onions.  When it is almost cooked through flip the omlet.  Spread 1 T. fat free or low fat cream cheese over half the omlet and top that with 3-4 T. fat free cheddar cheese.  Fold in half to melt the cheese and enjoy!

Guacamole Egg Wrap

I love this wrap!  I’ve never paired guacamole with eggs but it was really good!  For this wrap I used the Flat Out wraps.

 100_0991

These are really good and have low calories and lots of protein and fiber.  What a perfect combination! 

 I start the wrap by cooking an egg that has been whipped so the yolk is mixed in.  While that’s cooking I spread 2 T. of guacamole down the middle of the wrap.  Then I top with the egg, some veggies (today it was strips of bell pepper) and a slice of low fat swiss cheese.  I wrap it up like a burrito and cook it on the stove covered until the cheese has melted.  This is such a great wrap!  I hope you all try this one!

Week one of Core4 is over and I am down 2 1/2 pounds!  That is huge for me.  Whenever I try to lose weight it comes off about 1/2 pound at a time.  The funny thing too is that this product is said to target your trouble spots.  I was thinking, “Hm.  We will see about that.”  I lost 1/4 inch off each thigh and off my butt this week.  Hello trouble spots!  I am feeling really good taking the supplements.  I feel tight and fit and … just good.  I have good energy and all that kind of stuff.  I haven’t been  hungry all week long and my munching has really been kept to a minimum.  One complaint I do have though is that by the time evening comes I am feeling a little gassy… probobly from all the fiber I shake on my food!  I’m feeling really good though and excited to see what next week will bring!

Other news, I can still see!  At the Dr yesterday my right eye was seeing 20/20 and my left was at 20/25 just one day after surgery!  It should continue to improve for a while too!  I can’t even tell you how exciting it is to wake up in the morning and be able to see!  It is crazy.  My eyes are still pretty scratchy and sometimes my left one feels like I have an eyelash in it, which, as you all know, can be pretty painful!!!  But I can not complain one single bit!  I’m loving it!

Egg McMuffins

100_0443

This is one of my family’s favorite meals.  Notice I say meals not breakfasts.  We have this any time of the day.  Whenever I don’t make dinner Brandon makes himself one of these.  Then the kids see it and they each want one.  It is very simple, very healthy and very satisfying.  Now, that’s my kind of meal!

  • Start by spraying a pan with non stick spray and “frying” an egg.

100_0439

  • Meanwhile, toast a whole wheat english muffin.

100_0442

  • After you flip your egg, top with a tablespoon of cheese.

100_0440

  • After the cheese melts a little bit top with a slice of ham or canadian bacon.  Flip the egg so the ham is down.

  • Once the cheese is melted and egg is done, put on the english muffin and enjoy!  (Brandon butters his english muffin…  I don’t. 🙂  )

I saw this recipe in Jillian Michael’s “Making the Cut” book and thought I would try it out on my family the other morning for Sunday breakfast.  It sounded really yummy so I was excited.  They are way easy, too.  Here’s what you do:

  • Take 6 turkey sausage links and cook them a little in the microwave.  You just want them to be thawed enough to cut up.  Cut them into pieces and put one in the bottom of each muffin tin.
  • Take 6 pieces of raw turkey sausage and wrap it around the sides of each muffin tin.
  • Crack an egg into each muffin tin. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Add 1 T. reduced fat cheddar cheese to each muffin and bake for 5 more minutes or until the cheese melts.

I was a little concerned about just cracking the egg in there and not scrambling it or anything but you gotta have a little trust, right?  So, I popped them in the oven.  When I took them out to put the cheese on them they were still a little soft.  Next time I will probably cook them a few more minutes before I add the cheese.  I served these with some store bought hash browns for some carbs. 

 100_0303

The review:  These were really good!  I actually really liked them.  You had to cut them with a fork.  It would have been too messy to pick them up and eat by hand.  But I loved the sausage, bacon and egg combo.  Yummy, I love eggs. J 

 

Did they pass the husband test?  Yes, he liked them. 

 

Did they pass the kid test:

(I told him to smile as much as he liked them…)

Well I scheduled my appointment for Lasik Surgery!  This means I’m spending the next two weeks in my glasses.  I hate wearing my glasses.  I always feel like I look like I just rolled out of bed with them.  Probobly because thats the only time I every wear them!  I will have to wear them during my 10 miler.  I’ll have to wear them (and not sunglasses!) to the pool.  But Saundra pointed out that there will never be a totally convenient time to have to wear them and she’s right so I’m going on with it!  I’m way excited!

 

Brynley’s dance recital last night was so cute!  She did such a good job!  I’ll see if I can post a video on here later.  Today I have to finish flyering my neighborhood for my next boot camp.  I am SO sick of doing this!  I will be officially finished tomorrow and I can’t wait.  We are also going to attempt our first visit to the pool of the year!  YAY!  It just hasn’t been warm enough until now.  That’s about all going on today besides getting things done around the house which is pretty much a never ending job.

 

Oh, I also have another giveaway that I’ll be starting on Friday so stay tuned!!

I was full from lunch for a while but I still started feeling snacky around 3pm.  I pulled out one of my handy dandy little trail mix baggies.  That hit the spot because I ate it nice and slow, taking it one piece at a time.

The afternoon was spent doing laundry and doing lots of computer work that needed to be done.  As I was making dinner I snacked on the leftover broccolli salad from yesterday.  Man that stuff is so stinkin good!

100_0807

For dinner tonight we had Ham and Swiss Egg Sandwiches.  I just put ham and swiss cheese on a fried egg and plopped that on an english muffin.  I have a tutorial for making an English Muffin Sandwich that I will post tomorrow.  They are quite possibly the yummiest, quickest anytime meal there is.  My husband has one pretty much every night that I don’t make dinner.

I completed the meal with a salad.  It’s a random combo, I know.  But it tasted great.  The salad was very fresh tasting. I topped it with my homemade tomatillo dressing.  I will get that on here soon, too.

I got a couple new clients at work tonight and they were great!  I’m excited about it!  Now I’m off to watch the Biggest Loser Finale!  Who’s it gonna be?!?!  I’m excited to find out!
