People ask about my diet all the time. When they do, I tell them, “It’s simple, clean, and tasty.”
I typically eat my largest meal in the beginning of the day, (kind of like gassing up before a long road trip) and tapering off as the day goes on. This way, I have more energy throughout the day; I have all day to burn the calories I’ve ingested, AND there’s less chance of late day/evening snacking.
I start with a healthy breakfast, usually broken down into 3 parts, and eaten 2-3 hours apart.
- Low- sugar cereal with almond milk
Lately, my egg dish of choice, is scrambled eggs with onion, chicken sausage and avocado. Not being a big fan of preservatives, I use Trader Joe’s Jalapeno Chicken sausage, because I like it spicy. It’s minimally processed and contains no preservatives.
Here are the things you’ll need:
1 TBS sunflower oil
1 fully cooked sausage (diced)
1/3 cup onion (fine dice)
2 egg whites + 1 whole egg (scrambled)
1 large pinch of lite cheese (I like Trader Joe’s lite Mexican Blend)
1/4 avocado diced
Heat the pan on medium high heat. Once hot, add oil and coat evenly. Add sausage and sauté until lightly browned (about 2-3 min). Add diced onion to sausage and cook another 2 min or until translucent or lightly browned. In a small bowl, using a whisk or fork, scramble the eggs and add to pan. Turn down the heat to lowest setting, and using a spatula, gently stir as the eggs begin to solidify. Add cheese and continue mixing. Do not over cook! Remove from heat and serve with avocado. Salt & Pepper can be added, if you like, or just do what I do, and add hot sauce! YUM 🙂
