Roast Beef Breakfast Burritos

Roast Beef Breakfast Burritos
I am loving the emails and comments on how everyone is liking my Inspirational Diet!  I am three days in and I have to say its given me a renewed purpose.  I was just going through the motions with WW.  I am not saying I don’t like the program, because I do.  But I just lost my mojo on it. I can’t tell you the...

Breakfast Casserole with Zucchini and Sausage

Breakfast Casserole with Zucchini and Sausage
I have Kelly to thank for this casserole idea.  I did tweak her recipe a bit though – I decided to make a smaller casserole with only 4 servings, and I added shredded zucchini to the casserole.  I love the idea of the refrigerator biscuit bottom layer – never would have thought of that! Breakfast Casserole with Zucchini and Sausage 4 servings:  419 calories, 23...

Bacon and Pepper Egg Bake

Bacon and Pepper Egg Bake
I have so many of those tiny peppers to use up. I kind of get crazy when I see stuff on the $1 rack! I think I’ll grill some up to make a grilled pepper soup, but decided to sauté some up to make something for breakfast and see where my inspiration took me. A quick look in the fridge and I had . ....

Paleo Breakfast Casserole

Paleo Breakfast Casserole
I have Helen to thank for this delicious breakfast.  I never would have thought to sub sweet potatoes into a breakfast casserole.  And I have to admit.  I was a tad bit nervous.  I am new to liking sweet potato.  In like, I only tried sweet potatoes about 3 1/2 years ago. And while Helen adapted her recipe to what she had on hand/liked.  I...

Fruit Puree Granola – Winning!

Fruit Puree Granola – Winning!
I hadn’t had a bagel in a long time and knowing starting tomorrow that I am going to be limiting my carbs for the month of April, I indulged in a bagel breakfast sammie – a delicious and filling 10 point breakfast. I had a couple errands to run at lunch yesterday – it was rainy and cold so I didn’t work out.  I ended...

BSI – Breakfast! Muffins and Inspiration

BSI – Breakfast!  Muffins and Inspiration
As Tony and I were eating dinner last night, we both remarked that we should eat corned beef more often.  OMG, super tender.  All I did was pour one light beer in my crock pot, added the seasoning packet that came with the brisket, put chopped carrots and potatoes on the bottom then laid that glorious piece of meat on top – put the top...

I love him.

I love him.
We woke up to about 8 inches of snow in our neighborhood.  Tony started to get dressed to snow blow our drive – I love him!  But this is what I like to call “heart attack snow.”  So Tony, your job is to get better, and I’ll take care of the rest – deal?! 😀 It’s super wet, and each shovel feels like its 20...

Cranberry and Chocolate Chip Granola made with Splenda

Cranberry and Chocolate Chip Granola made with Splenda
After yesterdays +2.8 WI, I am not gonna lie – I really just wanted to go to McDonald’s drive thru and get a sausage McMuffin with Egg with Hashbrowns.  But I didn’t.  This is a lifestyle, not a diet and I know that what I do the previous 7 days doesn’t automatically show my efforts on the scale. I came home and started doing some...

4 Point Breakfast Parfait and 7 Point Spicy Gumbo

4 Point Breakfast Parfait and 7 Point Spicy Gumbo
I love, love, love Greek yogurt.  I’ve tried to get Tony to like it, but whenever I’ve made him fruit and yogurt in the past, after the first taste, his comment is usually “this tastes like ass!” But I love the tanginess of it, but I do think I have a sour palate to begin with – give me sauerkraut, vinegar, etc. I am a...

Baby Breakfast Tacos and Surgery Day

Baby Breakfast Tacos and Surgery Day
You all know I love all things Mexican.  Given the chance I think I would have tacos every day. 😀  At the store on Saturday I noticed tiny corn tortillas – I much prefer corn tortillas to flour ones.  And the fact that I could get 4 for three points sealed the deal – well, that and the price – 4 dozen for $1.99! I...
