When in doubt, eat breakfast for dinner!
There are times when I come home from a long day at work and the last thing I want to do is think hard about what to make for dinner. I seem to be having a lot of those days here recently and I have found what works the best and stays within my dietary goals is to have breakfast for dinner. Plus, it’s fun :)
Scrambled eggs + red and green peppers and hot sauce and two slices of whole wheat toast with butter (protein, carbs and veggies still covered).
Other things I had that didn’t make it onto my camera were:
- Broccoli and cheese omelet (2 eggs, 1/2 cup of broccoli, 1 slice 2% cheese) with ketchup and a side of plain grits
- Cauliflower and cheese omelet (same way as above only with cauliflower) and a slice of whole wheat toast
This wasn’t really breakfast but it was definitely an interesting concoction…
Pearled barley (cooked) mixed with 1/2 cup chunky vegetable pasta sauce, 2/3 cup Morningstar veggie crumbles, 1/4 cup chopped green pepper and topped with a sprinkle of parm cheese.
This meal was quick, delicious and kept me full for hours. I love it when a random meal works out that way, don’t you?
What are some of the weirdest things you’ve eaten for dinner? Please share ;-)
