Breakfast, breakfast, blunch

2 more work days til the Healthy Living Summit!  I can barely contain myself 🙂 I think I might actually be able to get my business cards after all!!!  I’ll post pictures when I actually have them in my possession.

Breakfast #1

Last night, I made up a double batch of scrambled eggs.  These consisted of:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 egg whites
  • S&P
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • a splash of water

When the eggs were almost finished cooking, I tossed a little Frank’s Red Hot on top:

I also roasted up 2 cups of broccoli.  I had half of this for breakfast this morning with a dollop of Heinz ketchup:

Breakfast #2

Overnight oats!!!  How many times can I photograph the same exact bowl of overnight oats??  Geesh.

I wonder if overnight oats are considered a “liquid.”  Would like to take some of these guys with me to the airport 🙂

Last night I mixed up chicken salad consisting of:

  • 2.5 ounces grilled chicken breast
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 Stonyfield Farms plain fat-free yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 cup red grapes, halved

I made a similar chicken salad a while back, and really liked it.  Today’s was just ehhh ok though.  I think it was the addition of the celery.

I served it on top of a bed of romaine lettuce:

I also had two pickle spears, and part of a Joseph’s low carb pita… Anyone else ever experience “low-carb” headaches?  I’ve heard about it before, and a little while ago I started noticing the correlation between headaches and the Joseph’s low-carb pitas!  Today I had half of the pita before I started to notice a headache coming on.  So odd… but I think I’m done with these pitas… Hopefully Mama Lupe comes out with a low carb pita soon 🙂

Plans for dinner:  Having two of my lovely friends over for dinner tonight 🙂 I have a special dessert project for them… hope they’re ready to be guinea pigs!
