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.

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!

OH! The Places You'll Go! Giveaway Hop + 7 Out of the Box Uses for Erasers

Another Summer has come and gone and it's time to head Back to School!  

If you're anything like me you took advantage of all those Back to School deals and stocked up on all those back to school deals and now have a surplus of school supplies which will probably end up in a junk drawer or put away someplace where you will never find it when you need it.

Take for instance those pink erasers.  I buy a pack every year and every year without fail my family gives me that look when they see that pack of lone erasers in the back to school shopping cart.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to use erasers around the house

DIY Christmas Ornaments Ideas + Super Stocking Stuffer Giveaway Hop

It's the most wonderful time of the year...


The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

So many childhood holiday memories and traditions we have carried on for so many generations.  

This year is going to be a little different for our family.  This year we are breaking tradition.

This year our Christmas tree is going up before Thanksgiving.

We have ALWAYS decorated the Christmas tree after Thanksgiving but this year since we will be traveling during the Christmas holiday I figured we should have the tree up and have a table set up for the family to make some homemade ornaments for the tree.

I love this Hot Cocoa Mix Ornament idea from Sprinkle Some Fun.  This would be an ideal ornament idea for a large group.  So many tasty fun possibilities with this one.
We usually donate paper towel rolls to the school for projects and they usually end up as napkin rings but check out this Toilet Roll Reindeer idea from Happy Hooligans.  Absolute adorable isn't it? I have so many of these …
