I have a thing for eggs lately…

I have been eating vegetables and eggs at least once a day (sometimes for every meal) for two weeks! I chop up a bunch of different vegetables at the beginning of the week. Then, when I get hungry I throw some veggies in a pan and fry up an egg or two with it. I like to incorporate anything I have left over in the fridge too! I love leftover baked potatoes and mashed potatoes with eggs.   I don’t know how I ever ate eggs without them.  Healthy doesn’t get any easier, more convenient, or delicious than this. Not to mention this is inexpensive and a great way to use up leftovers!

Some of my favorite combos are (I always make two eggs):
-ground turkey with taco seasons, onions, green peppers, black beans, salsa

-green pepper, onion, mushrooms, zucchini
-tomatoes, green peppers, onion, mushroom, skim cheddar cheese
-mashed potatoes, purple onion, green pepper, red pepper, ground turkey

I have been busy working on final projects for college and moving all week. My time has been very limited, but I have managed to take breaks to squeeze in runs and walks with the pup! I may not be getting out and about, or out of my sweat this week… I will be eating great!

Lazy Sunday

After a week of eating fabulously sinful (and delightfully tasty) Thanksgiving foods, I decided to get back on track today.  I made up a batch of turkey taco meat and tomatoes. I serve the meat with reduced fat cheddar cheese, salsa, and Hearts of Romaine.

Mrs. Dash has the best taco seasoning; it’s salt-free too!

Last weekend was insane and I didn’t get much meal prep done.  I’m normally very good at prepping and eating only what I make.  This saves me a lot of money and calories.  I actually prefer home-made foods over eating out.  Making it to the gym this week has been a struggle too!  I have been squeezing in short home workouts when I can, but there is always tomorrow 🙂

My weekend:
