Years ago, when I was a working woman, I would rush out of the house, baby boy in tow and make a mad, sad dash to drop him off at the baby sitter's house. I proceeded to drive on to "the job", most of the time in tears, because I had to leave him, not even giving a thought to breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Some days, I'd have time for a piece of toast, or cereal but most of the time I'd grab another cup of coffee and wait until lunch.
Lunch was usually leftovers, which is not a bad thing. We saved money as a couple, that way. What a concept! As the years passed and our bodies changed, my husband and I became more health conscious. We always started our day with a good breakfast. Weekends, at least Sunday, when I had a day off, I'd make a special meal. French toast, pancakes or eggs!
Lately, however, my breakfast of champions has been severely lacking in flavor but amazingly enough, I don't get hungry until hours after. The secret...egg whites! So, by consuming almost 55 days worth of egg white breakfasts with a small portion of fruit, I've dropped 21 lbs! I have to admit, I miss my oatmeal!
Now it's maintenance time for a month or two. Getting through the holidays will be a challenge because I love to cook and bake this time of year. We will see how it goes! In the meantime here is a couple pictures of breakfasts...what else?
