This morning I was craving a breakfast sandwich. My favorite one to grab on-the-go is either the Starbucks Egg White and Turkey Bacon Sandwich or the Egg White Turkey Sausage Flatbread Sandwich from Dunkin Donuts.
I don’t drive thru for breakfast very often, but when I do I always order healthier menu items to get a right start to the day. The DDSmart online menu only provides information for Wake Up Wraps, which is the most similar to the sandwich I mentioned above. Pictured is a wrap, and what I order is on what to me looks like a toasted Deli Flat.
When I really like something, I try to recreate it at home to save money (not to mention preservatives). Today I opted to leave out the meat and cheese to create an Eggbeater and Veggie Sandwich on a warmed up whole wheat Deli Flat.
I sided it with a sliced pear and enjoyed every last bite alongside a small glass of orange juice.
Notice I used the words warmed up, not toasted. First I tried to toast the flat, which was a complete disaster.
Being flat, (um… hello Heather!) one of the halves slipped right through the heating coils and after I unplugged the toaster to let it cool down, I managed to push the bread even further down to the very bottom.
After ten minutes of poking in prodding at the toaster with a fork, the flat proves to be triumphant over me and is still sitting at the bottom of the toaster.
I’m not quite sure what to do about that one. Scott? Roadie? Anyone?
How do you scramble eggs?
This may seem like an easy answer, but I’m guessing we all don’t scramble our eggs (or eggbeaters) the same way.
I start with dicing up any vegetables/meats and placing them in the skillet. After trying it a few times, this strategy spread the vegetables out the most evenly.
If I’m cooking for one, I’ll then pour a 1/2 cup of eggbeaters or whites and let everything cook on medium heat for about 2-3 minutes.
Once I see a little bit of egg forming, I’ll finish it off by scrambling everything together with a spatula.
I add a little bit of pepper to taste, then it’s plating time!
#TheFitClub Photo A Day Challenge for May
A few days ago I shared my Photo A Day Challenge for April I participated in via Instagram. I mentioned at the end of the post that I was taking the month of May off and would probably pick the challenge back up in June.
Well, that didn’t last long…
Tuesday morning I saw a bunch of Mo’ May Mo’ Muscles Challenge photos pop up in my feed and thought to myself, “Now that’s a challenge!”
Although I’m not doing the challenge to gain a ton of muscle, I’m using it as motivation to reach other goals. For the past few weeks I’ve been wanting to spice up my workout routine, get more creative in the kitchen and get better at prepping food.
Enter #thefitclub Photo A Day Challenge Day 1: Goal List.
What I like about photo challenges is the community you naturally build with others in your niche. I’m using May to concentrate on my health and fitness goals and knowing I have a dozen or so followers doing the same thing motivates me even more to kick this challenge’s booty!
A big goal for me is to start trying out new recipes and healthy foods. Since Scott and I are both fans of fruit and vegetables, I’m hoping he’s open to all of the crazy stuff that is about to come his way.
As healthy as I think I am (well… most of the time!) there are new foods and things I see on blogs and pages of people I follow almost daily. After I see a new food mentioned a few times, I become intrigued and start researching recipes to try.
Here’s a sneak peak at a few – and some new – things on my grocery list for next week.
Do you add veggies/meats to your eggs or omelets? If so, how do you do it – eggs or veggies first?
Anyone doing any photo-a-day challenges this month?
