Low Calorie Breakfast – Carrie’s Low Cal Scramble

I’m pretty sure it’s not been a secret – I struggle with food.  As in, eating too much of the wrong KIND of food.  I’m trying to meet a weight goal by the time I turn 40 the end of June – and my stick-to-it-iveness has been good/meh/bad depending upon the day.

One thing I’ve been trying to do is eat breakfast.  Breakfast is not my favorite meal – unless it includes friend potatoes…..Mmmmm…potatoes…………. whoa – forgot where I was for a sec there….anyway – back to breakfast.

Eggs/scrambled eggs have been a go to.  I usually scramble up a few eggs for the kids for breakfast – I firmly believe protein is brain food – and I try to send my kids out the door to school with just a little in them each day.

Since the pan & stuff is out – I generally make myself some breakfast around 9/10am – if I eat too early – i eat ALL DAY – so 9-10 is a good time.  This recipe was born from my rummaging around in the pantry/fridge to find something that was a bit different than my usual salsa eggs – and it worked out great!  I get my deli ham sliced to a “2” so, 2 oz is 1.5 slices….if you’re keeping track!

This gem is only 234 calories and is very filling!
