This time I don’t mean shop smarter price wise – I mean pick the best options for what you want to eat.

This morning I wanted a traditional American breakfast with eggs, sausage and toast. I used these things – egg beaters, veggie sausage and Perfect 10 bagel. Swapping these choices for real eggs, sausage and a bagel saved me hundreds of calories! dscn9304 Shop smart

My guilty add in was a little cheddar cheese on top of the egg beaters icon smile Shop smart A little goes a long way when you use sharp cheddar! I cooked some onions and mushrooms in a skillet before adding the egg beaters too icon smile Shop smart dscn9307 Shop smart

 Shop smartYesterday’s eats were really random because I ate breakfast so late after my run. I ate some watermelon and Triscuits before setting off on errands.

I don’t think he was ready for me to take the picture yet! Ha.

 Shop smartI also found this bar on clearance at Ralph’s. I really liked it! Ben liked it too. It has a very chai spicey-ness to it that I like icon smile Shop smart





 Then, I decided to have a super light dinner of salad so I could leave room for dessert…dscn9296 Shop smart

You know how I said Ben was moving? Well, I got to pick the paint color since I’m a girl icon smile Shop smart Right now it is a tragic pink color, This is after they started to sand it down… I’ll show you the “after” when it’s done! dscn9281 Shop smart

    Love the “healthified” breakfast. I got those perfect 10 bagels and thought they tasted a little weird though, I don’t know why.
    I’m obsessed with those self serve yogurt places too. There are like a million around here in Temecula so anywhere I go in town I know I’m within a mile radius of one calling my name. I use more toppings than yogurt :-) It’s just too good.

    Great healthy breakfast. I’ve found that I now prefer the “healthier” options, even taste wise. And they make me feel so much better, too.

    Your dessert looks fantastic! Have a great night :)

    I find it hard to eat healthy around my boyfriend too! I find myself going to Wendy’s with him!! Such a bad influence, he’s lucky I love him : )
