I really don’t like wasting food.
Anytime we have leftovers in the house, I always make sure that they get eaten up (whether by me or Jay) or used up in one way or another. Case in point…
Yesterday when I was making the most amazing sugar cookies ever, I noticed that the recipe called for 3 egg yolks. Now, that could have meant that 3 egg whites ended up hitting the trash, BUT…I saved the whites in some tupperware and used them this morning for breakfast!
Talk about being resourceful, right? I scrambled up my 3 leftover egg whites with a little milk (to make ‘em nice and fluffy!), along with some fresh basil, grape tomato halves, crumbled fat-free feta, and some S&P. They turned out delish!
On the side, I enjoyed another Lemon-Raspberry Muffin with a little butter.
They’re just so good!
I actually decided to throw some in the freezer today to save for another time.
Actually, that’s a lie. It was more of an attempt to prevent myself from OD’ing on them, seeing as through I’ve already made a fairly nice dent in the batch.
I enjoyed breakfast while admiring my beautiful tulips. They’re really starting to open up!
Hopefully you guys aren’t getting sick of ‘em yet.
This morning’s workout was a good one! I hit the treadmill for some intervals that looked a little somethin’ like this:
|0-5 mins||4.0mph – Warm-Up|
|7-35||Repeat run @ 8.0 & walk @ 4.5 intervals|
|35-40||4.0 – Cool Down|
I ended up hitting 4 miles almost exactly on the dot and finished as a nice, sweaty mess. It was a nice change of pace from my usual interval routine.
This afternoon, in addition to some un-pictured veggies & hommus, I also lunched on an incredible pumpkin yogurt mess. I had the perfect amount left in my large Oikos container, so I ate right out of that. Hey, less dishes!
You know what’s pretty cool? When you buy the large container that’s about to expire so you can save an extra dollar…and then you forget to make sure the cashier actually TAKES the coupon. Fail.
But that’s besides the point…let’s talk about this fantastic, pumpkin-licious bowl!
In the mix: plain Oikos, canned pumpkin (1/3 cup?), 1/2 sliced banana, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, raisins, chia seeds, and granola.
I just love pumpkin in my yogurt! I wish it was more easily available year-round. If I had enough space, I’d probably stockpile cases and cases of it around Thanksgiving time.
I’m so excited for my evening ahead! I’m meeting up with my dear friend, Sarah, for happy hour and dinner at one of our favorite spots, Bombers. They have some of the best burritos and margaritas around.
WOOT WOOT for girls night!
