Build a Breakfast Sandwich!

January 19, 2014

One of my most satisfying meal’s, is breakfast. (You know this is the most important meal of the day, right?) I love a breakfast sandwich. I think they taste great, I can include a nice variety of ingredients, and a breakfast sandwich can keep me full all morning.

I’ve bought Light English Muffins (3 PPV) forever, and I really like them, but while trying this whole Gluten Free thingymabob, I bought these!



These are 3 PPV per serving as well, and while it took me a while to get used to the different texture that they offer, they are beginning to grow on me!

I did sneak in a piece of cheese on my breakfast sandwich, and I said I wouldn’t do that until after my 21 days of No Gluten, No Dairy! I was honestly so excited to allow myself skim milk back in my coffee (early), I kind of forgot what my plan was as far as dairy was concerned! Forgive me, but what’s a breakfast sandwich without cheese????


I started with my new Gluten Free English Muffin, toasted.


Then I divided One slice of Kraft 2% Sharp Cheddar between the muffin halves.




I topped that with 4 cooked Egg Whites. This is 16 grams of Protein and only…..

1 PPV!



Then I smashed 1/4 of an Avocado, added a little Sea Salt and divided that between the two.

Then I finished it all off with a little Salsa.

On the side?? I love these Grapes!

I have only seen them at HyVee and the new Sprouts store!

They are so sweet and juicy!!

Leftover Beef and Brussels Skillet Dish




Lobster Fried Rice and Wine



We went to dinner with a few friends at the Thai Place in Westport, which I had never been to before, nor had I been to any Thai Restaurant before, (I don’t know why……) so my expectations were meat, rice noodles and a spicy sauce. When we got there, the menu was a bit overwhelming and I had not a clue what to order. So, while I’m certain I didn’t order the healthiest thing on the menu, the lobster tasted great! I picked through my dish a bit and made sure I got every single bit of lobster in my mouth!! I came home with a lot of the fried rice, so at the end of the day, I think I was over just a bit on points for the day, but not terribly so.



I would soooo much rather be walking outside and soaking up that fresh air, but if it’s below 50, I’m likely on the treadmill.

I’ve done a really good job of making sure I get in some sort of a workout. I have been playing with the incline on the treadmill and doing intervals,  so I feel like I am getting in a good workout. One day this past week, I just really wasn’t feeling it, but I forced myself to get on anyhow. I never did go over 3.0 mph, but I did put the incline at 3.0 and watched two full episodes of Breaking Bad, so after an hour and half, I figured I’d done my body a huge favor by not sitting on the couch while I watched my new addiction!!

I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!

    Thanks, Miranda! I’m glad you love the blog. I love comments like yours! If I was told I could only live on two foods for the rest of my life, it would be Holiday Grapes and Bananas!! I have put grapes in the freezer before, but not those. I’m on it!

    Have a great day at work! 🙂

    I love your blog. I love your ideas and thoughts. Holiday Grapes are from my part of CA. In fact most fruits and veggies come from my neck of the woods. As a little treat try freezing the grapes and enjoy them in front of the t.v.
    Keep up with the awesome blog! I read it while blow drying my hair before work!
