From September 2009 – December 2009 I lost 20 pounds. I stopped eating out as much and joined the gym. I try to workout at least 3 times a week and because I have a decent skill level in the kitchen and because I enjoy it, I cook. When I mentioned cooking a few folks said they’d love for me to share recipes and what I’m loving, so I’ll try to do a Cooking Light segment a couple of times a month.
What you should know up front is that I’m obsessed with Cooking Light Magazine and I’ve built a week’s worth of meals from an issue. I like them because it’s light cooking but it is definitely full on flavor. My latest obsession is a recent feature called the Jalapeño, Sausage, Jack, and Egg Breakfast Braid.
This is a little bit of egg, onion, chicken sausage, cheese, and jalapeño wrapped up in a yummy crust. My husband and I love it because you can slice it up and have it for 2 or 3 days as your breakfast on the go instead of something you buy in the freezer section. I made one and brought it over to my parent’s house last weekend and my sister told me it looked like something that came from Panera – what a great compliment! Per serving it has 164 calories and 10.4 grams of fat. It’s satisfying and really tasty and I’d definitely suggest you try it.
