We all experience changes in our lives. We have to reign in the budget because the gas prices are on the rise, we move with jobs, we grow old, we get sick, etc.
With all of that for an introduction:
"Hello, my name is Amy & I am a cat-a-holic."
Oh wait a minute - we are talking about change...
"Hello, My name is Amy & I am an egg-a-holic."
My new diet is going to be chock full of egg whites (I am not a yolk fan). FYI 2 egg whites are a single protein serving & I need 10 servings a day (20 egg whites a day)... (Theoretically, I could be doing an ounce of chicken, turkey, or fish or 1/4 cup of non-fat cottage cheese & a few other options - but I think the hard boiled egg whites will be easiest for me...)
The starches are intersting too... Did you know that a 1/2 of an English Muffin is 1 serving. I ahve been having two servings of those since the begining of time...
While the idea of at 5 a.m. eat 1.5 cups on unsweetened dry cereal with 1 cup of skim milk & 1/4 cup of egg beaters every morning sounds rather boring - I would rather have a menu like that instead of all of the options...
1/2 english muffin & 1 oz. low fat cheese at 7:30 - YEE HAW! (That should be cookie time...)
Very little sugar - 2 fruits a day, so my German Iced Gingerbread cookies are verboten. :0(
