100 lb. Club - Mustard on Whole Wheat Toast...what new (weird) combos have you come up with?

My breakfast every day consists of an egg plus one egg white, scrambled with 1/2 slice of whole wheat bread (the good kind) torn into little bits, all mixed together and microwaved for 1 minute. I toast the other half of the bread, slather it with yellow mustard and eat it with one bit of egg at a time perched on the bread.

I came up with this combo about a month ago when I thought back to my favorite breakfast of all time: scrambled egg sandwhich, on toast, slathered with mayo, mustard and a slice of american cheese. I did away with the mayo, the cheap white bread and the cheese.

What kind of odd combos have you come up with that you'd never have thought you'd love on this long journey of ours?

A really high calorie high carb dish that we used to eat was linguini with a white clam sauce. I have started serving it on spaghetti squash, and adding other veggies (carrots and celery heart), while using less oil in the sauce. It is still just as tasty, only now, it is diet food! :carrot:

I eat tuna mixed with mustard and wasabi paste, lemon pepper salt free seasonings on rice cakes with laughing cow cheese. Weird. but ohhhh so tasty ;)

One of my favorites now is baby carrots cut in half or more; and dipped into natural peanut butter -- their flavors really compliment each other. I tried other combos and this is my favorite to date.

OP ~ when we were kids we didn't have a lot of money, so sometimes we had mustard on toast for breakfast when we didn't have anything else. Today, I have mustard on most of my sandwiches; except miracle whip with tomatoes, and I still like ketchup on my eggs all the way ...


CFMAMA ~ I could see how tuna and mustard would taste good together; and with a little minced onion: kaPOW and ZING!

My odd combination is that I like to have tuna in a coleslaw; I cheat and use the bag stuff; add minced onion and a tbl Miracle Whip or similar dressing (lite Ranch works well too) and with a few carrots sticks and the can of drained tuna, it makes a nice lunch. Some people might add a sliced boiled egg too ...

Hm don't know if it's odd but I poach an egg every morning (pretty much) at work with my microwave egg poacher (eh it comes out more hardboiled but whatever), and I toast one sandwich thin and spread a laughing cow wedge on it. 215 calories, 8 grams protein, and 5 grams fiber :D

I also do tuna with mustard and onions and toss in a bit of cayenne pepper for a kick! :D

Ten years ago I would have thought oatmeal with peanut butter and vanilla protein powder was pretty weird, but it became my go-to breakfast for a year or so there. (I don't eat it anymore -- too many carbs -- but man, do I miss it.)

I make chicken soup for myself all the time. I cook it with carrots and onion and celery but I hate cooked carrots, onion and celery so I don't eat those (but the soup needs to cook with them to taste right). A few weeks ago, I was having my soup and had made a side of freshly steamed broccoli - a cooked veggie that I love. I got the idea to put the broccoli into my soup and it was so delicious, I plan to have it that way all the time!!

With white clam sauce, I have a small portion of pasta (a couple of ounces of cooked pasta) and add in steamed broccoli. I do this with shrimp scampi too.

I love spaghetti squash, but I generally have that with a red sauce instead.

Mustard on whole wheat toast. I just remembered I had something like that at an Irish pub in town. It was spicy mustard with a little cheese and toasted. I could do that with low fat cheese. I'll have to try it.

I like to do a kind of version of Thai salad...50 grams of bean threads mixed with sauteed shrimp, finely chopped lettuce, radishes and cucumber, with lime juice, and a tsp of peanut sauce.

Every day I'll eat a light string cheese stick with one of those light and fit yogurts (lemon is my fave) as the dipper.

I've discovered that I don't love mayonnaise! I thought I couldnt' live without it, but I switched to honey mustard and never looked back, even the lite stuff meh can do without it! My other thing is that for 2 years now, when I have Subway I aske them to scoop out a lot of the bread in the middle - saves a ton of cals, and makes the sammich more compact and you can stuff a ton more veg in it :D

Brit, that's my son's favourite snack, and has been for a LONG time. :)

I started using tzatziki on my sandwiches instead of mayo. It makes them taste a lot more interesting now. Today's was a flour tortilla, two slices deli chicken breast, lettuce, 2 dill pickle chips, and tzatziki. Delicious! I test drove the pickle/tzatziki combo yesterday, just to make sure it wan't heinously gross and I was surprised at how nice it tasted.

eratosthanes - we also add tuna to ours and sometimes extra chopped clams and we use spaghetti noodles. I love spaghetti squash and hubby likes it ok, gonna have to try this.

My craziest combo is peanut butter mixed with plain yogurt to thin it and then put on brown rice. I love it, but I've been told "eeewwwwww" many times, lol.

In college I ate rice with ketchup. It was cheap and I was broke. Sounds gross, but I actually loved it. I haven't had that in a looong time, and I won't be having it now (way too carby!) but it sounds pretty delicious! I'm starving, I have to stop reading about food.

thistoo - my hubby like ketchup rice sometimes, from learning it while young and broke. I eat lots of rice, but I'm not doing a low carb thing, I just try to balance my carbs with protein (IR diet style)

My dad actually makes a dish with rice and pasta sauce, with ground turkey. Not good for the low-carbers, but delicious otherwise. I make it sometimes now, minus the turkey, but with 1/2 lb of 92/8 ground beef, and brown rice.

Whole Wheat flatbread spread with an ounce of goat cheese then topped with tomatoes, peppers, onions, olives, and spinach, sprinkled with Ms. Dash... then toasted in the oven.....my version of veggie pizza! I could eat this for every meal, every day.

For breakfast, I love, love, LOVE Southwestern style Eggbeaters with a slice of low-fat, low-calorie cheese on a piece of sliced sourdough.

As far as weird combonations, (and I'm not sure that this is even SUPER weird), I like to eat half an avocado with crab and lobster meat stuffed inside (even imitation tastes great!). To add a little extra flavor, I usually top it off with a spoonful of salsa. Mmm mm mm!

I am SO hungry right now! My lunch time big salad wore off early!! I should never reach for coffee at my 2pm slump. I get this sluggish feeling so I drink a cup of coffee which then does something crazy to my blood sugar. All of your "weird" (or not really weird) combos have made me very hungry!!

The ketchup rice thing made me think of my very early adult meals in my first apartment ...I lived with my sister and we were poor. We ate ketchup spaghetti made with boiled pasta and then purloined ketchup packets. We both worked in fast food and "borrowed" pocketsfull of ketchup every night. Mmmm...even that sounds good!! I'm off to find something healthy in my emergency stores here at work.

I used to make something like this, with spinach or zucchini in it too. Hmmmm, I think it's time to make it again!

Well it sounds like it is time to leave the computer and go steam some cod I took out of the freezer this morning....boy that sure pales in comparison to that vegie pizza lol

GirlyGirl (gosh it is strange to me to type that in reference to someone else) - I do a very similar thing for a veggie pizza, sometimes I switch to feta and I usually use a yummy garlic naan and I frequently add zucchini, mmmmm

TakeMe2Tiffanys - your avocado sounds yummmmy. I think I am going to have to add things to my shopping list now. I think I'll add a bit of plain yogurt to mine (it's what I use in place of sour cream or mayo).

I also like the imitation crab with the avocado I make Sushi salad with that, Nori, raw spinach, carrots, cucumber and just enough brown sushi rice (1/4 cup uncooked) to make it yummy.

I made a new discovery last night. Veggie burger, cucumbers, lettuce, and a teaspoon of miracle whip on whole wheat sandwich thins. It was soooooo tasty. Never had cucumbers on a burger of any kind but it was so good I will be having it for lunch today.

savory oatmeal for breakfast. sometimes the thought of sweets in the morning make me go ''eww''. So I do it up Asian style--with ginger, garlic, chili sauce and soy.

I also made a sandwich using all sorts of odds and ends in my fridge.
a garden burger on a thin with laughing cow cheese/avocado/hummus and onions with a generous splash of tabasco sauce. It tasted freakin' delicious but that could have been the pms talking.
