Any excuse to eat bacon, I’ll take it.
I’ve even figured out how to incorporate it into our healthy diet. I just couldn’t say goodbye.
I’ll put one strip on a sandwich, or crumble a strip onto a salad. Or, my new favorite is pictured above. Three strips of pre-cooked bacon only has 80 calories. And it tastes good. Believe me, I was skeptical. Cooking bacon in the microwave? Unheard of. But I’m so happy to report that I was wrong. It’s thin, so it gets nice and crispy. And it has that full bacon flavor that I looooove.
So, when Lily and I had girls’ night last week, I made breakfast for dinner. Her pancakes had chocolate chips. I ate mine plain with sliced bananas on top. One of my other calorie-saving tricks with this meal is to scramble one egg white with one whole egg. Tastes just as good to me.
Bacon, pancakes and eggs for less than 500 calories?
