#FoodieFriday – Breakfast Style

Happy Friday All!

Getting back into the grind of healthy eating can be challenging, especially after Labor Day barbecues and birthday dinners. I’ve noticed that starting the morning off with a higher protein, higher fat meal sets me up for a successful day.

What I use:

2 whole eggs*

1 Thompson’s English Muffin

1 slice of Sargento Natural Munster Cheese**

2 slices of Oscar Meyer Deli Chicken Meat

1 Handful of Spinach

Pepper to taste

*Substitute egg whites to reduce fat content.

** Can go without or use reduced fat cheese to lower fat content.

How:

I let the lunch meat and spinach cook in a skillet for a minute or so first, and then, I add the eggs, cheese, and a little pepper. Afterwards, I flip the omelet and let it brown slightly on the top. This adds a little more texture to the eggs. Finally, throw the omelet on a toasted english muffin, and you have a savory breakfast!

#FoodieFriday – Birthday Dinner

Happy Friday all!

This week has been quite eventful! Not only was it Labor Day, but my twin and I turned 22 on Wednesday. To celebrate, we headed to one of my favorite restruants, the BoneFish Grill. It was a perfect place for a low-key birthday! The staff was great, and they even gave us a card with chocolate truffles and a coupon! Super cute!

In order to prepare to go out to eat, I merely limited my fat intake this morning for breakfast and lowered my carbs at lunch. By substituting egg whites for whole eggs, eliminating cheese, and ditching my afternoon cliff bar and oats, I made a little room to splurge for a celebratory dinner.

I ended up ordering “The Mule” with no mint to drink and a seared Ahi Tuna Steak drizzled with Pan Asian Sauce. ¬†For sides, I picked steamed broccoli and jasmine rice as my sides. I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday dinner!

In any case, the season of birthdays, barbecues, and anniversaries is finally coming to an end, and I am ready to hit the ground running with some serious “health!” I think its finally time to set a goal and strive to hit it–stay tuned!
