I’ve said before that I’m a follower of The Abs Diet. I don’t really like the term “diet” when it comes to what kind of foods you can eat on this plan, though. It’s just a very healthy relationship with food. When I first moved down here to the farm, the farmer had to adapt to my ways since it was a healthy eating plan that I adopted after I had Peanut. It worked for me in losing the leftover baby weight and the farmer has lost 25 pounds since I moved in. (without a whole lot of complaining, to boot!)
The thing I absolutely love about The Abs Diet is that the recipes are so easy and so delicious. My husband likes food. I don’t know many men that don’t. And as embarrassing as it is, there have been times throughout the course of our relationship when I have been able to eat my husband under the table.
And it wasn’t when I was pregnant. In my experience, my hollow leg at 26 is a lot less hollow than it was at, say, 22.
So, today, I thought I would post a breakfast sandwich that the farmer has just about every morning. It’s one of my favorites, too. It’s called The Three-Country Breakfast. Here’s how you make it:
1 egg, fried in olive oil cooking spray
1 slice Canadian bacon
1 slice tomato
1 toasted whole-wheat English muffin
1 tablespoon shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
Arrange egg, bacon, and tomato on one half of muffin. Top with cheese.
*Sidenote: You can also put the egg in the microwave for about a minute and a half to cook it. It takes even less time. I just like the texture better if I cook it in a skillet.
The specifics on this sandwich are: 326 calories, 24 g protein, 30 g carbohydrates, 13 g fat (5 g saturated), 5 g fiber, 1145 mg sodium
Trust me. It’s delicious and so easy. The farmer also had to make sure his favorite staple made it into the picture. Tabasco. He douses it in it. But, I’m ok with this because it actually makes it even more productive for him. Hot sauce will kick your metabolism into high gear for a little while.
I don’t know about you, but I like the thought of the food I eat working for me. Because the less I have to work out, the better.
