A 204 Calorie breakfast...

Friday, June 10, 2011

Here's somewhat of a change to my blogs... I might just post a personal recipe from time to time.

Poached Egg Breakfast!

This is a simple, quick, nutritional, filling breakfast that's one of my favorites. The best part of the whole thing is that it's only 204 calories (including the coffee). The calories were calculated via SP's Nutrition Tracker.

Here's what it all consists of:

-1 AA egg, poached
-3 Slices Hillshire Farms honey ham (lunchmeat pack-5 per serving)
-1 Ostrom's mushroom, sliced
-1 serving (2 slices) of Oroweat "Light" 100% whole grain bread
-2 servings (10 sprays per) of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray. 10 per slice.
-4 leafs of fresh baby spinach
-1 tsp. yellow mustard
-1 tsp. Tapatio
-Salt substitute (dash)
-Ground black pepper
-3 small strawberries, sliced

In a non stick frying pan add about a half inch of water and a half tsp. of vinegar. Heat until bubbles form in the water on the bottom of the pan. DO NOT BOIL.

Add the egg and allow to cook.

While the egg is cooking toast the sliced bread, spray each with 10 sprays (1 serving each) of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" (or equivalent). Place one slice of bread on a small plate, buttered side up. Apply some mustard to the piece of bread on the plate, add the spinach, sliced mushroom and slices of honey ham onto the bread and when the egg is cooked to your liking transfer it from the skillet to your piece of bread with the other ingredients on it. Let it sit for about three minutes to warm the ham, spinach and 'shrooms.

Slice the three strawberries and add it to the plate as a side. Season the egg with Tapatio, black pepper and salt substitute to taste (or your preferences, of course).

Serve with the other piece of toast and a cup of coffee.

It's excellent!

I've varied the ingredients in the past to include white onions, Kraft White American Cheese, Kraft Light American Cheese, Smoked Turkey slices, etc.

Either way the meal always seems to ring in between 200 and 300 calories.

What a way to start the day, eh?

    Mornin' Dennis,

    Your breakfast looks yummy!

    I am in my new apartment, very crowded at the moment, still trying to find things. Now I remember why I like to pack things myself but I only had 13 days to make this move so I am grateful for my friends who pitched in and worked their behinds off right along with me. About half my furniture went to auction in Pe Ell when he has the next one. I still need to send more things and am still sorting, tossing and donating as well. I wish I wasn't such a packrat! I've dragged the same stuff along with me every move. Now it is time to shed the past and move forward, which is what I have been working on. My back has been complaining loudly so I haven't been able to do as much as I intended but am just doing a box or two at a time.

    I love it here, centrally located in Chehalis just past Les Schwaub on Market. I can walk to all the stores and the downtown shops. The hills are a challenge but I will get used to them. It is 8 blocks to Safeway, three blocks to RiteAid, Ace Hardware and the Visiting Nurses. I have lost 7 pounds with this move and feel a lot better. Just by constantly moving and eating healthy foods. No Ice Cream for a month! LOL

    I can now afford to have cable TV if I decide to hook it up. We get free wireless highspeed internet and I am estatic about that. The laundry room is on the first floor. I am on the third floor facing the hill with all the trees and foliage and the Boy Scout lodge just behind and to the side of our complex. There are 40 residents, mostly over 80 years old. So I have moved to the 'old folks' home. LOL As I was reading over my application, they have me down as 'elderly'. Wow, I never knew I was!! LOL

    Have a good weekend.
