Habitually Scrambled

Every single morning I eat the same thing.  And I love it.  If it were a menu item in a restaurant, I would name it the Fierce Figure Competitor’s Hearty Scramble.

As you know or probably have surmised, I count every single calorie, carb, protein, and fat that I eat every single day.  So it’s important to have tasty, easy to make meals that fit my high maintenance criteria.

So let’s get cracking!

Fierce Figure Competitor’s Hearty Scramble

  • 40 grams onion chopped up (1 slice of a medium sized onion)
  • 40 grams ham (about 1/8 cup)
  • 70 grams mushrooms sliced (a big handful)
  • 4 egg whites (I use the already prepared ones)
  • 2 pieces whole grain toast
  • 1 tsp light butter

First, gather up all of your ingredients.

Ready, set, scramble!

Then start chopping.  There really isn’t much to do, which is good because I’m usually doing this at 5:30 am, BEFORE I have coffee!

Ham, Mushroom, and Onions

Ready for the frying pan!

Saute over medium low heat without any butter or oil.  Keep a lid on your pan to keep the moisture in.  I have a fantastic non-stick pan that requires no fat to fry things.  If you don’t have a super non-stick pan, splash a bit of chicken stock in to keep things from burning.

The house is starting to smell divine!

Saute just until your onions start to look clear.  Add your 4 egg whites and scramble away!  But don’t forget about your toast – make sure to pop it into the toaster right before you start scrambling so everything is hot and ready at the same time.

Fabulous, healthy, tasty carbs! MMM!

Put 1/2 teaspoon of light butter on each piece of hot toast and enjoy!  And yes, I actually use a 1/2 teaspoon every morning to ensure each piece gets the correct amount!

At this point in the morning, I am the happiest woman on the planet. I get to EAT. Have I mentioned that I LOVE to eat?!

I realize it is a bit anemic looking, but I’m anemic and you like me.  So I say give it a try!  If you want more color, add in some red peppers or tomatoes.
