Egg White Crustless Quiche

morning weight: trying not to weigh self

Egg White Crustless Quiche


Of course, you can make it anyway you want, but here's what I did.

Egg white equivalent of 6 eggs
1/4 cup paramesan cheese

Sweat the veggies of your choice over low heat. I actually also blotted mine with paper towels to get out extra moisture. Put them into your oven-safe heavy casserole dish.

Mix the egg whites, olive oil, and cheese by hand. Pour over veggies. Add spices that you desire.

30 minutes was about 5 minutes too long in my oven but a little crispy doesn't bother me. At least it was firm when I cut into it which was my biggest fear.

How is it different from an omelet? Well, it isn't really. But I was bored. So there ya go. I avoided any milk or cream as that is just not going to be low cal or low carb enough. But I would make this again, with different ingredients each time.

This cut into 6 pieces nicely. Don't ask me the calories for each one. My answer: not much but good source of protein.

It is going to be a long hot summer and I'm not going to want to cook much.

AVERAGE heart rate: 137
Max heart rate: 154

Note: Let's face it, the only reason I went to the gym is because I don't have a social life. Back to feeling the way I felt before I met Mr Listener. I've been experimenting with different paces. 2.6 and 2.8 seem almost no difference in terms of calories calculated or heart rates reached. Interesting.

This looks awesome! I made something like this with egg beaters, sundried tomatoes and spinach, it was pretty good too. I microwaved pieced with with a bit of lf cheese on top, and it was pretty yummy too.

Yum. I'm making this soon. I could eat that for dinner too!

I'm mad at myself for "dicking around" and not going to the gym. It closes at 2 PM. So think I am (make that I AM) going to do my Billy Blanks DVD. Lord help me.

I'm in a funk. Too bad we don't live closer. I'd totally go to the gym with you. Probably.

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
