Delicious Eggy Breakfast and Snowmageddon 2011!

Greetings from Snowpocalypse 2011!  We were pummeled in the midwest here (I'm in Milwaukee,) and so Dan and I are sitting at home, hanging out and being uber lazy.  It's fabulous.


First, don't forget about my $50 gift card giveaway!  Click here for that info.  It's super easy to enter to win.


Secondly, here are some photos from our house ('cause I haven't gone outside yet and don't really plan to...) of the awesome snow.


This was in the middle of the night, Dan just felt like going out there.  I decided to take a few photos of him in the snow through the window.  Crazy guy! :)

Today after some people had shoveled out a little bit: 



And thirdly, I thought I'd share a quick, yummy, 375 calorie meal with you guys.  This is my favorite power breakfast - packed full of protein and veggies!

I first sautee' broccoli, red bell pepper and mushrooms in a non-stick skillet with some spray.  Once it's starting to get somewhat tender, I throw in a handful of spinach and wilt it by putting a cover on the pan for about a minute.


After that, I throw in three eggs, and scramble it all up!


Served up with some chopped up tomato and a 1/4 cup of fat free cottage cheese.  Absolutely delicious!


This has a crapload of nutrients and it's just great for you.  I like using the cottage cheese instead of shredded cheese or sour cream - it's packed with protein and adds a creaminess without the extra fat.  :)~

Totally a "me breakfast." Love it! I'm a huge fan of cottage cheese w/ eggs. Love it!!!

Keep staying warm in all those crazy messy snow!

That's a great breakfast! I am keeping a low carb plan going this year and this is similar to most of my weekly breakfasts, but I usually fry up my eggs in the spray, and then throw the other things in on top, with some kind of other protein like turkey lunchmeat, turkey sausage, or tofu.

Love your breakfast! It's almost identical to what I had yesterday morning, lol. I do just egg whites, and I'm not a cottage cheese person, so I throw in some FF shredded mozzarella instead...it's like having a crustless veggie pizza for breakfast!
