You’ll want to bookmark this recipe for Ham and Cheese Breakfast Cups! Bake once, eat all week!
But first . . .
I woke up 30 minutes early yesterday and got a quick walk in before work. It was gorgeous – no breeze, 50 degrees. I loved the fog hovering over the river. It was such a great way to set the tone of being on track for the day.
I didn’t do a full grocery shop this past weekend because I had plenty of food to use up. I am the queen of doing a full grocery shop every.single.week until Hannah is like Mom, you can’t fit one more thing in the pantry! Okay, I get it 😀
I meal prepped these ham, cheese and veggie breakfast cups over the weekend. So easy and delicious and the best part is that each cup is only 2 smart points (but 5 for two and 7 for three). This would be perfect for a brunch because everyone could add their own favorite veggies and it bakes all at once.
I am having trouble with my recipe plugin, so below is the recipe. I love the crispy edges of the ham.
Feel free to use any veggies you like 😀
Yesterday was such a busy day, I didn’t have time to set up any pretty pictures of my food. I had two breakfast cups (5) with fresh fruit on the side.
Luckily my sister and I got together to walk – it was sunny and 72 – perfect! By the time I got back from our lunch walk, I had already walked 11,000 steps!
In meal planning through my fridge/freezer/pantry I found this . . . soup? chili? Not exactly sure, all I know is that I wrote “5 points per cup” so I had that with an ounce of tortilla chips for 9 points. I think it must have been a vegetarian chili because there wasn’t any meat.
The day flew by. I had a Premier Protein on the train ride home because I had goals to get to the gym before dinner. Hello stranger!
I did the 30 minute circuit first:
And then finished it off with 30 minutes (5 minutes cool down) on the treadmill. I start out at 3.5 mph hour for 4 minutes, then “sprint” one minute and repeat. My last sprint was 6.1 mph – which is about a 9:40 minute mile pace.
I didn’t eat dinner until almost 9:30. I decided to use leftover steak to make a steak, egg, cheese and hashbrown brinner panini. I used the Joseph’s Lavash bread (2) two ounces of steak (2) one egg (2) 3/4 cup Ore Ida hash browns that I cooked with Pam (1) and an ounce of muenster cheese (4) then put it on my panini maker to get it all crispy and melty. I dipped this into spicy salsa and this was a super filling and delicious 11 point dinner.
I ended up with a few steps yesterday 😀 I remember when I first got my Fitbit that I thought it would be impossible to reach 10k steps!
Day 1 of Biz 2.0 was great. I was tempted by apple cider donuts, leftover pizza, gummy bears that were on sale at the store, and I chose me over the food. Now let’s see if I can continue that another day. Just taking it one day at a time, but it feels good to be in control.
The only thing I was lacking yesterday was water – I might have only had 60 ounces, so I am going to fill up my gallon container and keep it on my desk as a reminder to drink up!
How was your Monday? What are your goals today? Make it a great day!
