The Mothers Day Brunch went well. My parents and Boyfriend's parents met, socialized and broke bread. Good times. Not quite as monumental as I had made it out in my head. I did adhere strictly to my goals, with the exception of having 1 or 2 extra pieces of mini breads. Unfortunately, all the beautiful pictures I took of the spread are trapped in my computer. I hope to post tomorrow with pictures from a hospital computer!
Mothers Day Omelet Muffins (with Salmon/Cream Cheese)
Ingredients (for 12 muffins....use only half this recipe for 6 muffins-->3 breakfasts)
6 eggs (can do 4 eggs + 2 egg whites/2 servings egg beaters)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup 0% Greek Yogurt
4oz/120g smoked salmon (it's sold in packages of 4oz and 8oz), chopped
4 servings fat free cream cheese
lots of fresh dill (eyeball it)
3/4 tsp baking powder
Mix finely chopped smoked salmon together with cream cheese. Put some muscle into it!
Add all other ingredients together (baking powder last)
Mix mix mix!
Separate into muffin tins (each hole should be just over 3/4 full)
Bake at 375 until tops just begin to brown.
These come out at 83 calories each, with 1/2 egg per muffin. Obviously they're not huge but with no oil or butter, I think that by weight/size they are at least twice as healthy as an egg sandwich. They were a great success and disappeared by Monday morning.
As a last note, hunger was hard to come by later that day so even though I ran 6 miles, I really just wanted frozen yogurt for dinner. Surprise surprise, after getting my yogurt at 16 handles (what I thought was a pretty medium sized portion!) I calculated it out to be just under 500 calories! And I thought Tasti-D-Lite was better but I came home and googled it and sure enough, the same portion size for Tasti-D is close to 400 calories. Darn! I really thought it wouldn't cross the 300 calorie threshold and I really felt disapointed. =( =( Not as disappointed as today, obviously.
Lastly, my blog has made it onto FoodBuzz as well as the Foodie BlogRoll. Yay! Keep reading, keep commenting. Espe
