A lot of you asked how I do breakfast and lunch. Those two meals used to confuse me! The answer is.. I just keep it simple. Take those main breakfast and lunch foods and find a way to THM it by adding or omitting. Here is an example of some great, easy breakfasts. I’ll post some great lunch ideas next week.
Omelets (S or E)
Omelets are a great way to fill up without bulking up. You can use a whole egg and more luscious fillings such as sausage, bacon, full-fat cheese and sour cream to have an S breakfast. Or, you could use egg whites, lighter fillings such as chicken breast, laughing cow cheese or light cottage cheese to have an E breakfast. This is my personal favorite because the options are endless!
Eggs and a Side (S or E)
Again, this option is super easy. For example; for an E meal, you can have your scrumptious egg whites maybe mixed with some veggies and you can have a slice of toast (sourdough, sprouted, Ezekiel or Gwen’s Easy Bread) with all fruit jelly, some low-fat Greek yogurt or cottage cheese, or some in-season berries.
For an S meal, you might have your eggs over easy with some bacon, sausage, cheese, and avocado.
The sisters are huge on great oatmeal options. Oatmeal is frugal and easily customized to fit your daily craving. You can have a great S breakfast with berries and cream added to your oats, or you can have an E breakfast by adding Greek yogurt and all fruit jelly. The sisters have some other great recipes in the book that I won’t list out of respect for their genius! 😉
Muffin In a Mug (MIMS) That Take No Special Ingredients
This is a great option for when you want something a little different and these two options help you get your E breakfasts in. Here are my favorite MIMS. Banana Cream Cake (E) and Apple Oat Cake (E).
Breakfasts don’t have to be confusing or a source of panic. If you aren’t a “breakfast food” person, try having last nights leftovers!
Since you requested, I’m going to try to make a THM post once a week! You can also follow me on Instagram, where I will post pictures of my yummy foods (when I remember!).
