Diet Dee-lish Dish

I signed myself up for Weight Watchers and lost 1.6 pounds this week! I am liking their newer program using "filling foods" (which is basically the old core/flex plan combined).

At my meeting someone plugged Egg Mugs from Sounded like an interesting quick and easy breakfast (or snacktime) meal so I gave it a try and YUM! I tried the Pizza Egg Mug but want to try the spinach and feta one next week. . .

2 tbsp. canned crushed tomatoes
1/8 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese
6 slices turkey pepperoni (like the kind by Hormel), chopped
1/2 tsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping

Season crushed tomatoes with Italian seasoning and set aside.

Spray a large microwave-safe mug lightly with nonstick spray. Add egg substitute and cheese wedge, breaking the cheese wedge into pieces as you add it. Microwave for 1 minute.

Stir gently, and then microwave for another 30 seconds.

Mix in seasoned tomatoes and pepperoni. Microwave for another 30 seconds, until scramble is just set.

Stir lightly, and then sprinkle with grated topping. Allow to cool a bit, and then ENJOY!

SLOW POKE...That's me!

Ran a rather depressing 5k today.
I haven't ran that slow in over a year. YUCK!
Better hit that pavement a bit more...

P.S. Did I mention I gained 28 pounds since my half-marathon
in September? I wonder...
