Hey, hey! Happy Halloween!!!!
If you care to check out what we did for a costume—click over to my post on upright rows from Saturday. We did choose our costumes haphazardly (and in a frenzy) so I am glad we were at least semi-recognizable. Hah.
Anyone going trick or treating tonight? I get to teach Zumba, so we’ll be doing some Thriller there, of course
And this morning I am teaching BodyPUMP—so it is only natural that my fitness outfits for the day are coordinated in BLACK and ORANGE. (I already owned orange athletic shoes–perfect!!) Yes. I am a nerd. And I am ok with that 😉
Eggs and Jam
Speaking of treats and things that go together (BLACK and ORANGE for example! 😉 ), you know what has been a delicious (and nutritious) treat to me as of late?? Eggs and JAM. I know, weird, right?! But really, this combo is literally the JAM.
Usually the normal combinations of food that includes jam or eggs are : jam and peanut butter, or eggs and toast, or eggs and bacon, or jam and butter, or jam and toast, or eggs and hash browns, but for this lady here, it is the eggs and jam combo that truly hits the spot.
I can’t handle the taste of TOO sweet any more (or at least, not as often as I used to be able to!), so when I eat sweet things, it is super satisfying and delicious to me to pair it with something salty.
(Pretzels and Nutella anyone?! YUMM.)
Hence the eggs and jam. Also, eggs, jam, cheese, and spinach are a delicious combo too. WHAT?! 😉
Yes, I am weird, and yes I combine foods in very unique ways, but you gotta trust me on this one!
An egg and jam sandwich (or open-faced sandwich) is chock full of protein, healthy fats, good carbohydrates, and vegetables (if spinach/veggies are added). These macronutrient combinations are what keeps the belly (and body) satisfied for longer than if we were only to eat eggs alone, bread alone, or spinach alone.
- cook 1 egg + 1 egg white + spinach in a pan over medium heat (I add cumin, garlic, black pepper, and chili powder as well)
- toast 1 (or 2) piece(s) of whole wheat bread
- top with Laughing cow cheese or other cheese of choice
- spread jam atop cheese
- add egg/spinach
Have a healthy, haunted-y, safe, delicious, and HAPPY Halloween!
Are YOU wearing BLACK and ORANGE today??! What is YOUR costume for tonight?? Any one ELSE love the eggs and jam combo too?!!
