Tomato Basil Breakfast Sandwich

One neatly folded breakfast sa... One neatly folded breakfast sandwich
Since I had leftover roasted tomatoes and avocado from my salmon tacos this week I decided to remix my morning breakfast with them. To make this sandwich, beat one egg with salt or other seasonings and then cook the egg like you're making a crepe. You want a thin layer of egg because you add sliced tomato in the center when the egg is done and fold the egg up to keep the tomato from spilling out, similar to this. The trick is trying to keep the egg from tearing in the pan or getting too thick to fold. Toast the bun and spread one laughing cow cheese wedge onto the top bun and sprinkle with dried basil. I spread the avocado on after spreading the cheese and basil. The result is a savory and filling sandwich for less calories than most options. Since the sandwich is so low calorie I like to pair it with "chocolate milk" which is a mix of one half-scoop of chocolate protein powder blended with PB2, half a banana, and almond-cashew milk (an additional 16g protein and only 185 calories). I'm stuffed until mid-morning and full until lunch time.

Three Cheese Zucchini Stuffed Lasagna Rolls

I brought leftovers for lunch I brought leftovers for lunch
Pasta has a reputation for being calorie-dense comfort food, but I consider this recipe a smart approach to one of my favorite dishes. My goal with every meal is to balance nutrition, portion size, and taste. These fit the bill!

Here is the recipe: Three Cheese Zucchini Stuffed Lasagna Rolls. This is the first recipe I followed from and I'm pleased to say that the nutrition information listed on the recipe is accurate. It's almost hard to believe food this rich and filling is so low calorie at 240 a roll! With two rolls and a side of veggies you will be stuffed. I've been packing these lasagna rolls for lunch all week and they are just as good reheated as leftovers.

For the red sauce I roasted and then peeled tomatoes, half an onion, and red and yellow bell peppers before tossing them in a blender with garlic salt. Yum!
