When one starts eating healthy there are many things to adjust to. The obvious adjustment is to actually eating healthy. But there is also the time involved in preparing meals. This can mean having to wake up a little earlier than usual or, if you’re also exercising in the morning, a LOT earlier than usual. I am a self proclaimed "morning person" and this was still tough. But after a few weeks making my breakfast and lunch post-workout became my favorite part of the day.
That said, there are still mornings where I can’t do everything. A late evening the night before, an early meeting, errands to run etc. That’s where the following recipes come in handy.
Denver Omelet “Egg Mug”:
Spray a microwavable to-go mug with non-stick spray
Microwave chopped onions and green peppers for one minute
Add egg whites and microwave for one minute
Add chopped ham and fat free cheddar cheese and microwave for 45-60 secs.
Portobello Chicken Burger:
Place a precooked “Roasted Chicken Patty” from Trader Joes between two Portobello mushrooms and microwave for three minutes. Let sit and press out excess moisture between paper towels. You can also create your own turkey patties using the Tone It Up recipe.
Whole Wheat Spaghetti and “Meatballs”:
Microwave a veggie patty for 1 min 45 secs to 2 minutes. Let cool, then use your fingers to create “meatballs.” Add to cooked spaghetti or penne pasta. Cover with sauce of your choice and microwave for two minutes.
