I had some zucchini and mushrooms in the fridge so I decided to do breakfast a little different. Lately I’ve been addicted to wraps but have been frustrated that the low carb bread I like is no longer at my local grocer (grrr!) so this morning I decided to go a little more low carb. I used a vegetable peeler and did some nice thing slices of zucchini–it was actually about 1/4 of the zucchini which made a huge pile. I also sliced some mushrooms. Sauteed them in a pan with cooking spray, salt and pepper. I pulled them out of the skilled and added 1 scrambled egg to make an omelet. I topped it with one slice of cheese, a thin slice of ham, and the zucchini mixture. Very yummy and filling. Also intead of topping out at over 300 calories I’m just a little over 200 calories for breakfast!!!!
Yesterday I was having a lot of problems keeping it under 1800 cal for the day mainly because of deciding to add swiss chesse to a couple of meals (why didn’t I know something that taste so smokey rich would be a higher calories packed cheese!) and I also had some homemade vegetable beef soup which realy isn’t that bad but I like adding crackers to it which are so packed with extra calories it’s not even funny!
There’s that old saying though live and learn so that’s what I’m doing. I’ll be more careful today and will make better choices.
