1 ½ two-oz eggs HINT: If you are serving one person, crack three 2-oz eggs into a small bowl or glass measuring cup. Whip up those eggs and pour half of their volume into a jar with a lid and put it in the ‘fridge for next week.                                                                              ¼ oz Jarlsberg cheese                                                                                                                                                    ¼ oz ham [I calculated the fat and calories for this recipe based on left-over roast ham. If you use 3% fat ham, you will lower both those values]                                                                                1 and ½ oz applesauce                                                                                                                                  blackish coffee or blackish tea or lemon in hot water                                                                               5-6 oz fruit smoothie or green smoothie

Put the ham into the hot saute pan to warm it briefly, then add the eggs and cheese. Scramble together [or cook like an omelette] until the way you like it. Plate with the fruit, warm your beverage, shake the smoothie. Good.

Cut chicken into strips and marinate in lemon juice and soy sauce while you prepare the vegetables. Stirfry the vegetables in oil and 2 Tbsp water for 3 minutes. If the vegetables in the wok stop making cooking noises, add a bit more water.  Add garlic and ginger. Count to 30 and add the chicken and marinade. Stirfry 1-2 minutes more to cook the chicken through.  TIP: Using chop sticks slows me down while eating, making the meal last longer!  Of course, maybe you are better at chopsticks than I am.
