After lots of family and fuss over Thanksgiving week-end, let’s treat ourselves to some delicious food that will slim you down again. These menus are rich in flavor yet low in calories. Sounds good to me.
Egg-Mushroom Toast 290 calories
This is yummy. The eggs are creamy and the mushrooms lend a mysterious layer of flavor. I like this better than poached eggs.
1 piece 35-cal bread OR 1/2 piece 70-cal bread one 2-oz egg 1 oz mushrooms, chopped 1 Tbsp chives, chopped 1 ½ oz of apple blackish coffee, blackish tea, or lemon in hot water 5-6 oz fruit smoothie or green smoothie or natural apple cider
Toast the bread. Spritz the non-stick saute pan with oil or spray and gently cook the mushrooms. Put the chives, salt, and pepper in with the egg and beat it up. Scramble lightly with the mushrooms, keeping the eggs moist. Turn the eggs out over the toast and plate the fruit. Sip your beverages and have a good day.
