You probably think all my family does is eat. At least that is what all of my past posts have been about. Well, you are right. JK, I promise we do other things in between all the eating. What can I say? We like our food. Last night we decided to make omelets for dinner. Similar to the pizzas, these are a great healthy meal option that you can tailor to each persons taste buds.
with some mushrooms, cilantro and cheese as well.
My omelet turned into more of a scramble of sorts, but it was surely delicious. I wanted to nix some of the saturated fat so I did one whole egg and three egg whites. I threw in some Lowry's season salt, and a bit of fresh ground pepper. Yum. Add a side of whole wheat toast and you're happy as can be.
You know how I like my nutritional information.
The stats for my omelet... 142 calories, 6 grams of fat, 5.5 grams of carbohydrates, 1.7 grams of fiber, and 17.2 grams of protein. Hey yo! Using egg whites instead of whole eggs is a great way to increase your protein without increasing your saturated fat. One egg white only has 17 calories and 4 grams of protein. WORTH IT.
Now, I have a question for you...Are you guys Yoga people? My brother who is here with me visiting the fam is a total Yoga-er Yogi? Yogurt? Clearly I am not one...as you can tell. I have always had the philosophy of; "If I am going to take an hour or an hour and a half to exercise I want to burn some calories. I want to sweat. I want to leave feeling ten pounds lighter, not more limber." Yoga is great for some people...but not for me.
Well this morning my darling brother, he really is thebomb.com, told me he wanted to try out a studio yoga class here in AZ and he was taking me with him. The end. He even paid for me. I told you, darling.
miniature grasp on what yoga is all about, but I told my brother he was free to pretend like he didn't know me when I looked like a complete fool.
I actually really liked it! It felt really good to do something different. I still have no idea what was going on with the chanting and all of the talk about my heart center, but I kept up just fine. I'm really good at faking stuff like that...ommmmmmm....see? It was really relaxing and it felt good.
Now for my question. Do you do yoga? How do you fit it in? I feel like in order for me to add yoga into my workout regime it would require just adding more exercise into my routine, which is fine, but I know that time isn't always going to be available. Give me your feedback on this one...I really am curious!
p.s. Thank you bro. Lub you!
