Normally I do my giveaways on the 1st of the month – but given that I just clicked over 100,000 pageviews yesterday, I figured it was a good occassion to do a giveaway!
One thing that helps me keep on track, not only with portion control but controlling my diabetes, is a food scale – I weigh everything out so I can figure out how many carbs, and then in turn give myself the right amount of insulin. I am proud to say that my 30 day blood sugar average is 112!!
Up for giveaway today is a Newline Electronic Kitchen Food Scale – this measures both grams and ounces (up to 6 pounds!), but the best part is that it has a removable bowl for easy cleaning. To enter, simply leave a comment on what one of your tools for weight loss or maintaining is – whether its walking your dog every day or meeting with a personal trainer 3 times a week – good luck! I’ll pick a winner on Monday June 29 at dinner time.
Best Value, great price. One lithium battery powers the digital kitchen scale with a low battery indicator, automatic zero, and automatic shutdown. For measurement with bowls or other containers, users need only to place the empty container on the scale and press the power button to set the measurement at zero for isolated ingredient weights. This Kitchen Scale comes with a plastic bowl. Capacity: 3kg / 6lb ; Graduation:1g/0.1oz. Specification: Equipped with a high precision strain gauge sensor system. Safety material(PP for foods). Tare function. Auto off & Manual off. Low power / Over-load indicator. Detachable plastic bowl for easy cleaning. Power: 1×3V CR2032 lithium battery (included).

Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese Bread Pudding
- 3 ounces stale french bread
- 3 ounces cooked chopped broccoli
- 1 cup egg white
- 1 cup skim milk
- 2 ounces cheddar cheese
- crushed red pepper to taste
- salt and pepper to taste
The inspiration for my breakfast was stale bread – I am notorious for throwing out gobs of bread before they are used – I just never think to throw them in my freezer!
I just mixed everything together and then when I put it in my cast iron skillet – I let it sit for 10 minutes so the eggs and milk got absorbed in all the bread – then baked for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.
I am also going to throw in some other goodies in the giveaway, maybe some red quinoa and a few other things 😀
Morning break is over – come back for Chips and Taco Dip!
