My Nutrisystem Journey Week 6 and 5 Protein Rich Egg Recipes #NSNation #Ad

Disclosure: I am a Proud #NSNation Blogger and I received Nutrisystem in
exchange for this review.  The opinions expressed above are 100% mine
When people ask what I'm doing to lose the weight and I reply "Nutrisystem", I'm often asked "how's your diet going?"  Diet?  Nutrisystem isn't a diet, it's a program.  I like to think of Nutrisystem as a mean of helping me reprogram my nutritional habits.

SECRET WORD:  EGG

I'm eating healthier meals.  Making better food choices and losing weight along the way.  I'm learning how to use food as fuel.  It's all about finding the proper mix of good carbs, high protein, high fiber foods to keep me going without packing on the extra pounds.

When it comes to protein, few foods pack the protein power of an egg.  Eggs are the PERFECT snack.  You can boil 'em, scramble 'em, saute' 'em add 'em to your salad and so much more.
Eggs are powerful little sources of protein and can be prepared in so many ways.  Eggs are low in calories and high in protein and a wonderful addition to your Nutrisystem meal plan.
Nutrisystem includes a few breakfast items with eggs like the Turkey Sausage and Egg Muffin, the Canadian Style Turkey Bacon, Egg and Cheese Muffin, French Toast and my favorite, the Turkey Ham and Cheese Omelet.
Nutrisystem Turkey Ham and Cheese Omelet
 This omelet is 90 calories of deliciousness and it's quick and easy to prepare.  A minute or so in the microwave and tada I've got a tasty way to start my day.
 
Check out these 5 quick and easy ways to start your day. 
  1. Boil 'em.  A medium to large boiled egg is a only 50-70 calories and packs a whopping 6 grams of protein
  2. Scramble.  Scramble in a skillet or crack two eggs, add salt and pepper, pour in a microwave safe mug, pop in the microwave for 2 minutes and you've got No Mess Scrambled Eggs
  3. Easy Egg Salad.  Boil 2 eggs, add a tablespoon of fat free mayo, 1 teaspoon of mustard, a sprinkling of salt and pepper.  Mash together and you've got a tasty egg salad.  Feeling fancy, chop some parsley and exchange the mustard with curry powder for a tasty Curry Egg Salad.  Yummy!!! 
  4. French ToastNutrisystem French Toast is pretty tasty but 1 egg and 1 slice of whole wheat bread and you've got the makings for a classic French toast dish.  Crack the egg, add a little cinnamon and/or nutmeg and dip your bread til coated on both sides.  Cook until golden brown and top with fresh fruit or lo-cal syrup.  Yummy!!!
  5. Quiche.  I don't remember which one of my co-workers shared this One Egg Quiche recipe with me but it's been a fave of mine for years.  It's one of my fave dishes to make in my ramekins.  Just preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray the ramekin with cooking oil spray, grab a slice of bread and press down into the ramekin to form the quiche crust, crack an egg, add some cheese, add some fresh veggies and bake for about 20 minutes til settled.  Tasty dish for one.
I am back on track.  After gaining a pound last week, I am happy to report I lost 2 pounds this week.  *tosses confetti*

Congratulations on losing some weight! I am trying very hard to do so and I know food is a big part of that. I have definitely changed my eating habits. I am hoping to see a change in my weight.

Awesome on the weightloss! I have tried for the longest time to like eggs. I can eat the egg white, but I can't stand the yolk of an egg at all. :-( Unless it's in a cake! ;-)

Eggs are a wonderful way to get your protein without the added carbs. Drink more water and those pounds will melt away!

I am really interested in this program. I wonder if they have gluten free options. I am going to have to check into it!
I was just sitting here, saying to myself that I need to eat healthier! I can't go vegan because I love eggs and cheese.

My husband did south beach for a while so we are very familiar with eggs. They are a great choice if you are trying to lose weight.

Congratulations on the weight loss. I love eggs and need to eat more. Breakfast is so hard for me. I tried Nutrisystem years ago and really liked it. I think I will check it out again.
It sounds like you are very pleased with the food and that's very important. I like eggs, they're very inexpensive and versatile.

I love starting the day off with eggs. I love eating them with mustard.

You can add eggs to a lot of meals too. They are just a great ingredient to have around the house.

I love eggs! Since I'm vegetarian, I try to eat quite a lot to ensure I'm getting enough protein. A simple boiled egg is one of my favourite breakfasts.
These simple egg dishes are great. It is not only healthy but it sure fills you up, making you crave less!

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…

Win an Alex and Ani Bangle in the Color Me Lucky Giveaway Hop!

The kids are back in school and we are back to the hustle and bustle of another school year.  I am so excited as I have a high school senior this year and we are looking forward to a banner year!

He's super busy and doesn't always make time to grab something for breakfast so I like to keep some of his favorites on hand so he can just grab 'n go on his way out the door.  One of his favorites is our Easy Breakfast Burritos.  
He's a master of the microwave so these quick 'n easy breakfast omelettes in a mug are a fave.
He loves pancakes so keep homemade pancake mix on hand.  All he has to do is grab a scoop of the mix, add milk and he can whip a stack of pancakes on the stove or in the microwave. 
So many choices and that is why we are so excited to participate in the Color Me Lucky Giveaway Hop hosted by Mama the Fox.  We're giving one lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader an Alex and Ani bangle (priced $25 and under) of their choice.  

I just have one questio…
