A Little Too Cheesy

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?
