A few weeks ago my friend Kelsey texted me and told me that she was about to start a 2 week boot-camp at Corepower Yoga and desperately needed some healthy food ideas since participants were highly encouraged to keep a food journal and follow a healthy meal plan to maximize their results.
One of the first things I ask people when they ask for healthy food ideas is what they’re eating for breakfast. I’ve said it 4857948 times on this blog but I truly believe breakfast is the most important meal and sets the tone for your entire day of eating. So when Kelsey (calling you out sorry) told me she’d been eating a frozen Special K Breakfast Sandwich for breakfast for the past like 6 months I almost died.
I immediately went online to check out the ingredients (because I’m psycho) in these breakfast sandwiches and please just listen to the ingredients in the “egg” portion of the sandwich: Scrambled egg patty (whole eggs, whey, egg whites, nonfat milk, soybean oil, modified food starch, dicalcium phosphate, salt, sodium bicarbonate, xanthan gum, guar gum, citric acid [to promote color retention], pepper, soy lecithin). SAY WHAT?!?!?!?!?
An egg patty should have 1 ingredient: egg!
