We finished off last night with some hookah and tea (yes, those are his and hers mugs!) and amazingly, my scale did NOT reflect last night's excess!

Today, I had to have a solo breakfast while Boyfriend visited his parents. Their cat died last week =(
Even though I had a snack and a coffee with him, I knew I'd want a warm filling breakfast before I headed off to the gym and did all my chores on Sunday. Bah, I hate cloudy rainy Sundays when you are FORCED to do chores.

Here is my eggy, bacony, bready, fruity breakfast. 300 calories in the end (S!

From the left: green apple (for after!!), measuring cup, eggs-in-a-carton (you can use real eggs!), salsa (I like the corn and black bean kind), PAM non-stick spray.

In the center: one strip turkey bacon, one TJ deli flat

Picture
This is my 1/2 cup (2 servings or 2 egg equivalent) eggs + 2 tbsp salsa + salt, pepper, Italian seasoning mixture in the measuring cup. I just use it as a bowl so I have less cleanup!

Notes
1. Use as much or as little salsa as you want. This is a great place to use the more liquidy part of your salsa that you always have too much of.
2. use whatever seasonings you like, I also put in a few dashes of hot sauce!

Picture
Put the bacon in the microwave for 1 minute covered with a paper towel, tear it up into little pieces.
Spray a pan down with PAM (this is a small pan but I think I overloaded it, so my suggestion is to use slightly less than 1/2 cup of egg beaters or a medium pan), turn heat on medium and throw in the egg mixture, followed immediately by the bacon pieces, evenly dispersed.

This may seem ridiculous to most, but if you don't normally make omelets, just wait until the edges start to get a paler yellow just push them inwards and let the runny stuff seep through.

Picture
In the end, I put 2/3 of it on the deli flat and had 1/3 left over to eat plain. This is a LOT of food for 230 calories! And it has protein, vegetables (I bet you didn't know that salsa is an amazingly healthy condiment!!), protein again (bacon) and whole wheats (deli flat)

Other notes: I don't think this needs cheese and I don't think I'd be able to taste it over the bacon, but if you're a vegetarian, a few little cheese slices or a sprinkle of grated cheese (thrown on at the end!) would make this equally yummy.

I confess, I did some snacking before and after this, not because I was hungry but because I was bored =( =(
Still, I made my 12 o'clock gym time and ran 5.3 miles (+12 minutes on the stairmaster because I had a magazine and I just wanted to finish it). Tonight is a cooking-in dinner night, so I'm debating between something in a tuna or maybe a turkey sausage....side of "hummus" with veggies.

Adios!

    I'm a recent graduate from medical school and a pathology resident living in New York City. Like most girls living in the city, I've found that a lot of my social life revolves around the regular consumption of high-calorie food and alcoholic beverages. I've decided to start a blog about how I am trying to beat the bulge by eating and cooking defensively between social engagements and how even a busy girl can fit exercise into a busy life.
