A creature of habit, I often settle into a specific food routine that doesn’t change much from day to day. Monday’s breakfast is the same as Tuesday’s breakfast, which is also the same as Wednesday’s breakfast. While consistency is a good thing, it can also become boring if you’re not careful… which can lead to unexpected splurges and bad meal decisions.
My latest bad breakfast decision quickly turned into a daily ritual, replacing my healthy breakfast of fruit and yogurt with a (delicious) Mediterranean Egg White breakfast sandwich (on a whole grain bagel) from Panera. While this breakfast sandwich is undoubtedly delicious and relatively healthy when enjoyed sparingly (say, on weekends), the sandwich quickly adds up in both dollars and calories when consumed on a DAILY basis.
So, in an attempt to kick my habit (and recognizing that fruit and yogurt simply isn’t “cutting it” for me these days), I developed a delicious and super-nutritious breakfast casserole that not only saves me money, but helps me fight fat all week long! Ladies, say hello to your new breakfast ritual...
