It’s just as important to recognize the things that don’t work as the things that do. No loss on the scale this morning, which was stupidly disappointing. But in reflecting back, I definitely ate too much cheese yesterday. Having given up dairy for the last 14 months while nursing, I can only say in my defense that I missed cheese. So much.
The egg fast ratio of 1 egg – 1 TBSP fat – 1 oz cheese is apparently real, and if I’m being totally honest I may have eaten 3-4 oz. per egg. Okay, maybe like 10 oz. Havarti, brie, gruyere. Cheese is right there, folks. In a busy crazy day, grabbing a slice or cube of cheese is so easy, and cooking up a batch of eggs takes at least 3-4 extra minutes that with work, the baby and a baseball team of children sometimes I just can’t spare.
So for today, I’m going to list, for you and myself, all of the wonderful things I can do with eggs and butter. Even a touch of cream cheese. But no cheese.
Fried, scrambled, poached, hardboiled, soft boiled, hollandaise sauce, custard, crepes, even ice cream (if you can’t tell, I love this lady’s recipes).
Okay, I’ve got choices – let’s see what tomorrow’s results bring. What’s your go to egg recipe?
