So I made a fun breakfast recipe on Sunday that I want to share with you. Its healthy, easy and low carb!
It’s actually a healified replica of a breakfast I had in Hawaii.
I loved it and knew I was going to make it at home. The ingredient that makes this dish so awesome is the dinner sausage. It is a total game changer & gives a different breakfast taste dynamic.
The second ingredient that changes the dynamic is rice. In Hawaii they eat rice with everything including breakfast. I LOVED the taste of the dinner sausage and rice with the eggs. Even though I didn’t use a lot of rice (look at those mounds in the picture – good thing I was on vacation!) in this recipe – it still worked. You can also try cauliflower rice for an even lower carb option but I like to keep my breakfast over 20carbs.
1 Chicken apple sausage (I used Trader Joe’s) (120cals/7carbs)
1/2oz. Shredded Mozzerella (50cals)
1oz Avocado (45cals/4carbs)
1oz White onions (11cals/3carbs)
3 Egg Whites (75cals)
1/4 Cups White rice (50cals/10carbs)
I cooked the sausage + onions in one pan and the egg whites + cheese in another pan. Then I threw everything on the white rice.
Meal Total: 351cals/24carbs
Me and my husband both loved this. I will definitely make it again!
OK well this was not fun but the rest was ?
I started the day with a trip to the lab to get blood taken for my next doctors appointment. I am actually pretty nervous about this one because I got married in July (woo hoo) then went on my honeymoon for 2 weeks. Lets just say things were crazy during this time and my blood sugars certainly reflected it.
After I was done having blood taken I drank my shake. I am used to eating breakfast around 7am so I was starving by the time I was done! I made a tiramisu protein shake which included this: Vanilla Protein /// 1 cup coffee /// 2TBSP Mascarpone cheese (120cals, 0carbs) /// 1/2tsp Rum extract /// 1/2tsp cinnamon /// Hemp seeds (25cals, 0carb) /// Bee pollen /// Heavy cream (50cals, 0carbs) and a blob of PB on the side.
Lunch – Avocado love <3 need I say more?
Brian and I are finally putting together a grown up bed! Meaning no more 10 year old queen sized mattress and target sheets lo.l We got a kind sized bed, a pillow top, high end sheets and comforter. For the mattress we decided to try Leesa – Its one of those new online brands that people rave about. You can’t try before you buy but according to reviews they are more comfortable than the ones in the store that cost thousands. They come in a tiny box and when you open it they expand. I can’t believe how small the box actually is – look at Robert Moses next to it! I am so excited to use it ? ?
Take a look at my outfit – I am wearing bell bottoms for the first time in YEARS and I love them! I got mine from Express. They run long but I still had to order them online in a long length.
Off to Volleyball – last game of the season
I had a Grey goose and club soda with a lime – my go-to low carb cocktail.
The only damper was a low blood sugar in the middle of the night which made me eat half a banana with about 8 HUGE spoonfuls of peanut butter. I hate middle of the night lows – they make me crazy ?
Other than that yesterday was great!
Have an awesomely fantastic day!
