My lunch/breakfast, roughly 430 calories. 4 eggs a slice of cheese, 4 slices of bacon, California veggies bag one serving or so. Drink of choice not pictured coffee. Any suggestions or advice is always welcome. I like quick and easy. Bacon was microwave veggies were microwave and eggs on the stove.

Try going with some real cheese like an aged cheddar and mix it in with the eggs. Better flavour and texture than the processed cheese slice!


bossman118242

would you mix the cheese in while the egg is still cooking or after?


TentativelyCommitted

You can toss it in while cooking, or you can even mix it in with the raw egg in the bowl.


xboxdingleberry

Look up how to make Gordon Ramsey’s scrambled eggs.... soooo bomb, then i throw cheese on the plate with em orrrr in the pan before i plate it


IAMSTILLHERE2020

Don't take it personal but.. 1 sampled egg = 91 cal x 4 = 364 calories. 1 slice bacon = 43 cal x 4 = 172 calories 1 cheese slice = 60 calories 1 cup of steamed vegetables = 150 calories Total = 746 Your amount = 430 I think you are 316 calories short. But otherwise good breakfast.


AustinFrog-1

Spot on. At least 650 calories, prob closer to 750. Certainly not 430. If trying to get there, lose 2 eggs, a couple of slices of bacon and use some shredded cheddar and then add 5 or 6 strawberries. Put it all on a smaller plate and you trick your mind a bit and it feels like more!


nomation

Surely veg would be around 70 ish calories per cup? I guess it does depend what vegetables you use though. Also egg size is something to consider


RhubarbSilly5734

A large egg is about 70 calories... not sure where the 90 is coming from? 3 eggs should be 210 without any butter spray.


IAMSTILLHERE2020

Google: 1 scrambled egg calories It says 91 calories. 78 for hard boil egg 78 for raw : 17 on the whites and 55 in the yolks. So there we are. How accurate is this. Not sure. I have no idea how to measure the calories of any food. That would be a good reading and testing experiment. Anyone here knows how to do this?


bossman118242

lol i messed up my math, good thing im not a math teacher.


IAMSTILLHERE2020

Not to shame anyone but I learned that the reason I wasn't losing weight was because I always underestimated calories and portion sizes.


ShieldMaidenLagertha

Apps like My Fitness Pal can help keep count very easily. I’ve found it to be super helpful!


bossman118242

i used the containers for my numbers so lol. great value eggs, great value california veggie bag, great value bacon organic.


AugustGreen8

I’m at Walmart right now by chance buying bacon! The organic great value pack says 70 cal per serving which is one slice, great value egg also 70 per piece so with the eggs and bacon you have 560


daughterofthemoon420

Great value is still 90 and 6-7g of protien. But a breakfast in the 700s is fine. The type of food you chose is good!


ShieldMaidenLagertha

I, too, was wondering about the math. 😂


SuperKelly

Came here to say this


blenderspro

Nice breakfast


bossman118242

thank you


TheAccountantsWife

What brand of bacon is that? It looks thick for microwave bacon and now I want some!


bossman118242

i use regular bacon in i use this bacon rack thing its 1 minute per piece and it holds 4. this was stor brand applewood smoked thick cut. i can get the name of the rack if you like. it works great.


TheAccountantsWife

Thanks! That would be great if you don’t mind!


bossman118242

this is the microwave rack i use, i use regular bacon and do 1 minute per slice and it works good. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Nordic-Ware-Covered-Bacon-Rack/184016586


bossman118242

Bacon https://imgur.com/gallery/8QQPh8v this is the exact bacon I used.


TeeTeeTomTom

A far better breakfast would be 1-2 eggs, a cup of egg whites, 3 slices of turkey bacon and an apple or a banana or both. That would give you about 400-700 calories but a much better protein amount and over all quality of food


bossman118242

thank you for the suggestion, i usually do a heavy breakfast because some days dinner does not happen or does not happen til like 2am depending on work. also that this meal happened at like 11:30am so breakfast lunch and my next meal was not til 9:30pm for today. my schedule sucks lol


RhubarbSilly5734

Looks easy and delish! Personally I would choose some Avocado instead of cheese but that's my personal preference!


bossman118242

I struggle with avocado, I like it but if I get a full avocado it's always hard as a rock and I can never get it to a spreadable or way to eat it. I always opt for the already mashed avocado in the cups which are ok but small amounts.


stawabees

Bananas help avocado ripen. Put a banana in the bowl with your avos!


bossman118242

thanks for that tip, never knew that.


RhubarbSilly5734

That's so understandable! I know the texture throws a lot of people off.


kapbear

Buy a softer one


iceefreeze

This is awesome.


bossman118242

thank you


xKINGxRCCx

I’d definitely throw some sort of carb in there. (Oatmeal, toast, grits, potato) something of the sort. Would make for a more fulfilling meal. Unless you’re trying to cut weight of course

cerenatee

For you. I think the rules say we don't know what other people need to eat to be healthy so we aren't suppose to make any holier than thou statements from on high about what's healthy or not healthy unless you link to a study too back your claims.

bossman118242

when on a budget you have to eat what you can afford, breakfast food is super cheap, also where i choose to go a little bit more on what i like and dinner is more strict if i have it. i show my nutritionist all my meals and she hasnt told me to stop with the breakfast foods.


bossman118242

eggs are low carb bacon is low carb so fits my diet :)

I'm ok with that. I'm not on a military strict diet. I watch ny carbs and make sure my calories are good and call it a day.


Youonlyliveonce1979

Just eggs. I microwave 2 scrambled with water or milk. Sometimes I have ketchup or salsa.


mjgmoon

Add egg whites to 2 eggs or even 1 egg If you need more food Change the bacon to lean ham / or Turkey bacon Add some berries as previously suggested I personally would eliminate the cheese-if you must- use a healthier real cheese in small amounts Keep on trying for your health :)


Slashroma88

Adding a half carrot and some broccoli does not make your food healthy. Your dish is full of saturated and trans fatty acids and cholesterol. Moreover you overcooked your vegetable destroying most of vitamines and converting polysaccharides from fiber into monosaccharides which are absorbed much faster. If you want a suggestion cook your vegetables less to preserve phytonutrients and fiber. If you want to keep meat in your dish, try chicken or turkey instead. What you call cheese is just a slice of an undefined over processed low quality food. Try cottage cheese or goat cheese. They’re better in term of protein and Poly unsaturated fatty acids contents.

CreateYourself89

Delicious -- I love the idea of incorporating veggies into breakfast. For example, I love omelets with broccoli, mushrooms, spinach and tomatoes. However, this is way more than 430 calories. The bacon alone is probably around 400 calories. I recommend turkey bacon is you're counting calories. 😉


chipsdub

I’m a bit freaked out by the dog peaking out from behind the bacon.


bossman118242

huh? lol


chipsdub

I guess that’s where a dog would be though.
