Healthy, Easy & Good Meals

I’m sure everyone is trying to eat light after the holidays.  Well, I am anyhow.  🙂  I wanted to post a few of the meals I eat.  These are ones I just make for myself, not our family meals.

Yummy Egg Muffin Sandwich

I am so addicted to these right now.  I take a wheat english muffin (sara lee) and toast it.  I then fry 1 egg minus the yolk.  1 piece of 2% cheese (its lower fat than the regular cheese slice) and 2 pieces of precooked bacon.  I pop the muffin in the microwave for 10 minutes with the cheese on it to just to melt it.  I break up the bacon and make the sandwich.  This is only 4 pts if you do Weight Watcher points.

Oatmeal with Agave and Bananas

Another one I am addicted to.  I mean, I actually crave this!  I bought this oatmeal from Costco called Coach’s Choice.  It is so so so good.  It’s healthier also.  I make 1 serving (depending on how hungry I am, I either do a 1/3 cup or a 1/4 cup serving)  I cook it in the microwave then I put it in my bowl, add a cut up banana and 1 tsp of Agave Syrup.  This stuff is the bomb, I got it a store in San Diego.  But you can use anykind of Syrup.  Agave is just better for you.  I then add 1 tsp of Splenda and mixed it all up.  Dang it, it’s yummy.  The larger serving is only 160 calories and the Agave is 30 calories.  This meal totally fills me up too.

Turkey Avacado Wrap

One whole wheat 9″ inch wrap.  I add low sodium Sara Lee turkey, lettuce, tomatoes, and avacado.  I will usually eat a 100 calories pack of chips, some grapes or apple slices.

Of course I add in fruit all day for snacks. I eat one of these 3 meals every day.   For dinner, I eat whatever I make for the family.  I just watch my serving size but normally everything I cook is healthy.  The best thing I like about them is I feel really full.  Comment and let me know any of your healthy choices!  

Later I will post my Beef Stew recipe.  I currently have it in the crockpot now.  It’s such a great recipe, it’s really the best stew I have ever eaten.

Ciao!

My First Food Post!

I wanted to share this easy peasy recipe for blueberry muffins.  By baking them tonight, I can be more lazy in the morning since my helper (Drew) will be flying out and not here to help make breakfast and pack the kids lunches. (Be safe, hun!)

Ok, so I know I said this was a photography blog.  But I actually thought of this blog as I was putting these in the oven.  So no step by step photos for this one.  But really, its easy…just mix it and pour into a muffin pan.  So here goes!  Drum Roll Please!

My super easy peasy blueberry muffins

2 1/2 Cups Pancake Mix
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 egg
2/3 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Canola Oil
1 1/2 Cups Fresh or Frozen Blueberries

In a large bowl mix together the pancake mix and sugar.  I use bisquick as this is a staple in my house, so I always have it on hand.  I am sure there are other recipes that are more “homemade” than using bisquick but this one works great for me!  In another bowl, whisk the egg, water and oil.  Stir the mixture into the dry mix.  Fold in the blueberries.  I normally use frozen, because again, I always have them in the freezer.  Once in a while I will use fresh.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes.  Tops will be golden in color when they are done.

Enjoy!

If you make any of the recipes I share please let me know what you think.  I am always tweaking them and would love to hear about any changes.  Next time I am going to substitute apple sauce for the oil and see how they come out.
