I had Biz's breakfast sammies again this morning.
Then I got busy making the casserole originally found on Helen's blog at Doing a 180, but I found it again on Biz's blog at Biggest Diabetic Loser.
I can't ever seem to follow a recipe exactly and this was no exception. Biz used 1/2 lb. of sausage, and Helen used 1 lb. if I remember correctly. I took the easy way out and used a 9.6 oz. bag of Jimmy Dean turkey sausage crumbles. You're supposed to cook the sweet potatoes (I used 1 large one) in the microwave for 4 mins. I cooked mine 5 mins. because the next step is to sautee the sweet potatoes for a few mins in a skillet and I didn't have time for that. I chopped up a bunch of spinach (I never measure veggies) and threw it all in a bowl.
I sprayed my baking dish with Pam, poured it in, and then added my eggs. I used 5 whole eggs and 4 egg whites. It didn't cover the mixture, so I probably needed more, but that's all the eggs I had. I put 1/2 c. of 2% Mexican blend cheese on top, and then added some thin sliced sweet pepper rings because Biz did and it looked good.
I baked it at 375 for 25 mins and the eggs weren't quite set, so put it back in the oven for another 10 mins....so 35 mins. cooking time for mine.
I cut it into 6 squares. How does it taste? I have absolutely no idea. I had already eaten breakfast and it was time to get to work, so I'll be having it for breakfast tomorrow. :)
Lunch was leftovers from last night. Grilled chicken and Crunchy Veggie Pasta Salad.
I packed this veggie bowl for snacks. I threw in a Laughin Cow chipotle something or other cheese thingy to put on the celery. I don't do plain celery.
When it was time to break out the veggies at work, I put it all on a plate and added some grape tomatoes and 8 raw almonds...snacks that I already had at work. It took me about an hour and a half to graze on all of this goodness.
When the craving for something salty hit, I broke out the evil carbs....crackers. I fell in love with these about 3 years ago. They are the crispiest, crunchiest cracker I've found. They are 10 cals each and worth every one. I had 7 of them.
I made chicken fajitas for dinner. I took a pic of the tortillas I normally use, which are 40 cals. each. But since I already had carbs with the breakfast sammies and crackers, I decided to put mine on green leaf lettuce. I added some sauteed red onion and red bell pepper (cooked in Pam) and some sour cream on top. These were fantastic!
I made Dwayne's fajitas with these.
I baked a turkey breast tonight after dinner so I'd have it ready when we got home from work tomorrow. Bad idea. My house now smells like Thanksgiving. I ate about 6 oz. of that while taking it off the bone. Doh! I'll post a pic of it tomorrow.
Hope you had a tasty day! :)
