My new favorite way to make eggs (since I can’t do my preferred gooey yolk fried egg over rice with the pregnancy) is to have omelets. However, I’m a horrible omelet flipper, so I decided to start making them the way I had them at lunchtime in Europe.
I love them because I can add in whatever ingredients I want (usually leftover veggies…squash, mushroom, onion, garlic) with a quick stir-fry, pour the 2 whisked eggs over the top (I always add a spice to the eggs…dill, marjoram, thyme, parsley), cover it on medium heat until set, flip for a minute or so…and voila! A delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner meal fit for a hungry BTDer. It’s sometimes a special treat to put a dollop of lowfat sour cream on the top too.
I also appreciate the fact that they are full of protein and proper nutrition without making me feel full to bursting. And…a flat omelet just looks so darned attractive sitting on a plate with whatever ingredients have been added just peeking through the yellow. They are especially handy with a side of veggies (broccoli or wilted greens look the prettiest) for a quick and easy dinner.
I got back from working out this morning and was famished, so I cut up three good sized mushrooms, fried them for a couple of minutes, added whisked egg with dill, and had a quick, yummy breakfast with very little clean-up. Rock on!!!
That’s all for now, hope this finds you well…happy living…
I don’t have time to write an extensive blog, but did want to check in briefly. Been back from Cali for a week now, and am actually glad to be back on the East Coast. I had a fabulous time catching up with girlfriends, palm trees, Pacific breezes and FRESH LOCAL PRODUCE!! I loved that since I was staying with friends I had full reign of the kitchen and cooking up healthy, compliant, fresh, yummy food! I also enjoyed visiting my old farm stand (Ontario Farmer’s Market on Mountain if you’re in the area) and buying bags and bags of veggies for less than $10!
On the bump front: the baby is developing well and in constant motion…someone suggested that I get my running shoes in shape because if they’re active in the womb, they’ll be active in the world! I still feel wonderful, and simply LOVE being pregnant. My bump is looking more like a pregnant belly now that we’re into our 5th month, and I am constantly amused by having to learn new ways to move my body (I know…the best is yet to come!!). I’m still teaching my water classes and am looking for a good prenatal yoga class to join. Hubby and I go work out in the morning before work, so I’ve been focusing on light weights to keep good muscle tone.
Keep tuned in for the next blog which will feature some yummy salsa recipes that will help you use up those garden tomatoes taking over your kitchen!
Take care of you, eat bennies, smile, and enjoy each moment that you have. Be well…
