Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. It feels like a chance to set a (food) tone for the day, to declare to the day that nutritious, yummy, fulfilling choices are going to be made. This is one of my favorites – an eggs/egg white omelet with whatever veggies happen to be leftover from the day before. I had red peppers left from having a veggie tray out at a party before, and I tossed them with 1 egg + 2 egg whites, 1/8 cup of shredded manchego cheese and a splash of skim milk. The bread is a homemade whole wheat made by the wife of a “graduate” of mine (who lost a mere 75 lbs in 18 months… even with this delicious bread in the house!)
Egg omelet: 170 cals, 2 oz wheat bread 140 cals, 1 tsp honey 20 cals, 8 oz light pom/cran juice 40 cals, tea zero = 370 cals. Stayed full for almost 4 hours, too. Yum.
