Pumpkin Cake and Omelets

March 5, 2012 at 10:29 am 3 comments

Morning! I’m running late this morning, so I’m trying to fly through this post to get started with my day!

Yesterday I tried out a new snack that I saw pinned on Pinterest that I think was from an article on Shape.com. It was 2 minutes Pumpkin Cake! All of you know my obsession with pumpkin, so I had to try it out!

1/2 cup of pumpkin, 1/4 cup of egg whites, splenda, and pumpkin pie spice went into a mug. I microwaved it for 2 minutes, and out came pumpkiny goodness! Of course I had to add a little something on top. Enter 2 tbs of light cool whip! 🙂

90 calories with cool whip, and 70 calories without it!

Fast forward to this morning…

Alarm went off at 6, and I was at the gym by 6:30. I ran/walked on the treadmill for 20 minutes to warm up and then did a circuit that took about 35 minutes.

After showering, Chad asked if I wanted an omelet. He makes them all the time for his breakfast, but I always say no so I can make my usual breakfast sandwich. But today, I agreed to let him make me one, and I’m so glad I did!

1. Yes, he always cooks shirtless. 2. I know you’re jealous of our kitchen.

My omelet had 2 eggs, turkey bacon, onions, and fat free mozzarella cheese. It was delish!

I’ve had my 2 cups of coffee, so now it’s time for me to get some work done!

Thanks for reading!

      I have those same nights when I just don’t feel like eating normal “dinner food,” so I’ll make some oatmeal or french toast. I swear I could eat breakfast for every meal of the day! 🙂
