Bacon and Eggs Trick That Saves On Calories

Dear Bacon Lovers who want to inhale bacony goodness while still losing weight… I have a gift for you in the form of a simple trick. This trick will save you time and cut calories. But you will still enjoy all the bacon grandeur your stomach lusts for.

THE TRICK: Grab yourself a package of high quality bacon bits. Hormel Crumbled Bacon is a fantastic one. Before you flip your eggs in the pan (I always use my Lodge Cast Iron Griddle Bacon and Eggs Trick That Saves On Calories), sprinkle on the bits in a portion that’s just right for you.

This will cause your eggs to become pregnant with bacon. With each bite you take, you will be getting a bacon and eggs fusion that will make your taste buds explode into the heavenlies. There is no dealing with the cooking-time to fry bacon slices. You won’t be dealing with any bacon grease either.

This trick will bring you many chewing moments of bacon-splendor while keeping you on track with your fitness goals due to the smaller, yet satisfying portion of bacon. I cooked my eggs a longer so the yolk was semi-runny.

How I Sometimes Eat on Non-Fasting Days

pieslices How I Sometimes Eat on Non Fasting Days

Sorry, ya’ll. I’ve been overdoing it on this fitness stuff lately. It’s about time I showed you some hardcore proof that I’m still a greedy woman. My stomachs just luuurve those non-fasting days.

I ordered two slices of pie on a day I wasn’t fasting. Apple pie and also ‘da pumpkin, too. But I’m doing it wrong? Will order enlarged pieces next time.

Sidenote: On this same day of non-fasting I turned down pancakes, lemon cake, pizza with bacon topping, and barbecue chicken wangs. The pie slices were a small bit of indulgence compared to all the other greedy choices I could’ve gnawed on.

Food freedom is important but do it with no regrets. Don’t give up the foods you love! Just make sure your choices are worth it.

I’m asking you to do this…

Each one of you has God-given gifts. You have special ability and plain ‘ole natural skill. Are you using those gifts to the fullest? You have a certain knack about you that not everyone can replicate.

It’s a gift. Are you cultivating it?

Despite any doubts, the inner voice that speaks to you quietly, encouraging you to pursue greatness, should not be ignored. The things that are uniquely wonderful and special about you — your talents — don’t abandon them. Pursue it.

So what am I asking you to do? 

Feed your God-given gifts until they grow from seedling sprout into full maturity. Live a fulfilled life without any regret of what could’ve been if only you would have walked strong in your talents and pursued all the other things that are in your heart to do.

Go after it. Show up, be present and get what you came for.

So tell me… will you do it?

tater skins Greedy Recipe! Garlicky Loaded Tater Skins

I was worried my breath might smell like garlic on hot coals imported from hell, but no one else seemed to think so.

GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS

serves approximately 7-8 hungry people

  • 5-lb bag russet potatoes
  • 1 large head broccoli
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (approximate)
  • 1 cup ready-to-eat bacon bits (approximate)
  • bunch scallion
  • 1 small diced jalapeno (optional)
  • garlic powder, salt & pepper
  • 2-3 cloves fresh garlic sliced thin, or crushed garlic if you prefer
  • dollops of sour cream

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Halve and then quarter the potatoes.
  • Set potatoes skin side down on large baking sheet and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes or until fork easily pierces through.
  • While potatoes are baking, prep broccoli by cutting florets small, as pictured, and cooking in pot until al dente.
  • Drain broccoli then sprinkle with garlic powder and set aside.
  • Allow potatoes to cool for a few minutes, then scoop out approximately 1/2 of the potato’s innards.
  • Sprinkle garlic, salt & pepper onto naked potato, then begin loading it up.
  • Add broccoli, bacon bits, cheese, scallions, fresh garlic and jalapenos (optional) in desired amounts. Remember, you don’t need a ton of garlic for the flavor to come through.
  • Return taters to the oven to re-heat and allow cheese to melt — approximately 5-10 minutes. Monitor closely to prevent overcooking.
  • Add a dollop of sour cream to your plate for dipping instead of layering onto each individual tater.
  • Now CHEW .
