Egg Whites Breakfast

Pixy begging for some egg whites

A few Sunday’s ago, my few friends decided to have a Sunday Funday, and this usually involves booze. Conveniently, Café Chloe [ in Hillcrest, CA, a San Diego neighborhood ] allows dogs. I brought along Pixy, my brave, beautiful [ as my best friend calls her “the most popular girl in the world” ] chihuahua. I could tell she had a craving for egg whites, and so did I.

Sunday’s are usually my “cheat days”, but I still like to make healthy, positive food choices. I did not work out this specific day and wanted to be as low cal as possible but still have some fun too. I quickly ordered a Lavender Lemon Mimosa (a must try) and then balanced it out by modifying my order. I picked the restaurant’s Brie and Herb Omelet with Sausage. I substituted regular egg for egg white with no butter, no oil, chose light brie, and subbed berries for the sausage… and voila!!! So light and yummy. I felt full and enjoyed my mimosa with no guilt. I even snuck a bite of Michael’s whole wheat pancakes… The day turned out to be relaxing, as it ended in a much needed nap!
