Quick and Easy Weight Loss Recipe-Omelet In A Freezer Bag

QUICK AND EASY WEIGHT LOSS RECIPE

omelet in a bag

So sorry, dear reader, I have not posted a prettier picture, but this one conveys what you will do with this quick and easy omelet recipe!  We can thank my sweet hubby for this idea!  He went to a Men’s Breakfast and this is what they served….an omelet cooked in a Ziplock Freezer Bag!!  You will never do it any other way…so glad he reminded me of this!  This is perfect if it is for one or if you want to do a breakfast brunch for  a church group or co-workers on the weekend!  Here we go!

INGREDIENTS:

2 eggs                               

2 slices ham, chopped (optional)                               

1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese                               

1 tablespoon chopped onion (optional)                               

1 tablespoon chopped green bell pepper (optional)                               

2 tablespoons chopped fresh tomato (optional)                               

1 tablespoon chunky salsa (optional)                               

2 fresh mushrooms, sliced (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

1.  Crack the eggs into a large resealable freezer bag. Press out most of the air, and seal. Shake or squeeze to beat the eggs. Open the bag, and add the ham, cheese, onion, green pepper, tomato, salsa, and mushrooms. Squeeze out as much of the air as you can, and seal the bag. 

2.  Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Place up to 8 bags at a time into the boiling water. Cook for exactly 13 minutes. Open the bag, and let the omelet roll out onto a plate. The omelet should roll out easily.

 That is it!  You can do any variation you like.  Just throw it in, zip it up, and boil.  I usually put a little more cheese once it is out of the bag.  You may also want to plate a cup of fruit that is in season!  Enjoy!!

Quick and Easy Recipe-Chili Rellenos Bake

Quick and Easy Recipe

If you will remember, precious reader, last August I developed symptoms of a racing heart (tachycardia) and was put on a “beta-blocker“.  I found out the hard way, that these medicines can make some people gain weight by virtually shutting down the metabolic rate in our bodies.  Some it doesn’t do this to, but guess which category I fell into??  Ugghh!! 

Today as I got my hair colored (don’t tell anybody that part!  Lol.) and cut I looked at my face I could see the weight gain and I just cannot stand it anymore!  I have decided to go back to my old way of eating which made me feel so much better!  I may not drop a pound, but at least  I know what I am doing is what is right for me! 

Some years ago, I lost over 50 pounds on a high protein, GOOD carbohydrate way of eating!  It isn’t no carb!  You can have fruit, but you have to stay away from processed sugars and all starches.  I am NOT RECOMMENDING you do this!!!!!  It works for me and if this is something you do, I have some yummy recipes to share!   Remember, NEVER do anything without consulting your physician!  Now let the cooking commence!!  :)

Let Me Tell You!

I first want to let you know, when I (Juliana) post anything on health, fitness, recipes, they are NOT Kim approved!  I don’t know half of what she does and I am learning so much!!  Also, when we tell you anything about supplements,etc., it is for knowledge only!!!  We are not RECOMMENDING anything!  That is for your doctor alone to do and you should see your doctor before doing ANYTHING!!   I have not even had a chemistry class in my life, if that tells you anything!!   

With that being said I want to tell you about something I discovered yesterday at the health food and vitamin store!  As you all know, since the beta blocker I have really struggled with my weight!  I know that blood pressure and weight gain are related and I also knew just losing 20 pounds would definitely help me!  At the health food and vitamin store I had heard of Garcinia Cambogia.  I decided to check into it more.  After talking to their supplement lady, I decided to try it. 

It was my mother’s birthday, PRAISE GOD!!!  As you all know she has had 2 near death experiences with her heart since last August, and we celebrated another year!  GLORY TO GOD!!  That being said, we took her out to eat and I took one of the capsules.  I ate 2 rolls, half of a steak, and green beans and a salad.  Any other time this would have put 2-3 pounds on me!  This morning I WAS 3 POUNDS LIGHTER!!  This has not happened to me since I have been on the beta blocker because they slow your metabolism down, and sometimes shut it down, which is what happened to me according to my doctor.

I found out if you don’t diet you will lose about 2 pounds per week!  BUT, if you do diet and exercise  (which is what I have chosen to do), some have lost up to 7 pounds per week!  I AM NOT RECOMMENDING YOU DO THIS, but it doesn’t hurt to know about it, right?  I am simply telling you what it did for me so you can research it out if you would like to and check with your doctor!  I am thrilled and actually feel better! 

You can google it and find out more.   I learned most health food stores do carry it!  :)

Blessings to you, precious reader!   Juliana
