I’ve been trying to step up my breakfast game lately, since I’m getting a little tired of protein shakes and egg whites. I switched back to maintenance calories a few weeks ago, and that also means I get a few more carbs for the day. Since I was mostly avoiding carbs in the mornings, I feel like I can squeak a few of those in for breakfast now. That being said, I still want to have a macro friendly breakfast that has a good amount of protein in it to start my day.
Since egg whites are a sure way to get good protein macros in the morning I’m kind of stuck with them as my go-to for breakfast, I just need to be more versatile with them. This past week I saw these Thomas Double Protein English Muffins and ran out the house looking for them. Sadly, I couldn’t find them in my local grocery store, but I did get these Thomas Bagel Thins. Calories and macros on these weren’t too bad, so I got them instead and used them for this week’s breakfast of the week.
what you’ll need
- 139g egg whites – three servings
- bacon – I had two slices of the Morningstar Bacon Strips
- 1/2 C spinach
- 1 Thomas bagel thin – new favorite!
- 28oz mozzarella cheese – again we have no sliced cheese, so feel to use that
- optional: salt, pepper, hot sauce
Toast the bagel thin while you’re preparing the egg whites. To prepare the egg whites, spray a small skillet with non-stick spray and turn stove to a low-medium heat – I like to cook my eggs whites on a lower heat setting. Pour egg whites into the pan and let cook for a few minutes.
While you’re waiting on the eggs white, microwave or cook your bacon to your liking. By this time the bagel should be toasted, so place that on a plate and layer bacon on the bottom of the bagel. Cook the egg whites until they’re more solid on one side, flip and let cook for a few minutes. To get the egg whites to fit on the bagel easily, slice the scrambled egg whites into two or three smaller scrambles. Remove the egg whites from heat, layer some on top of the bacon, then add your cheese, spinach, bacon again, and finally add the remaining egg whites.
Garnish with salt and pepper, if desired, or even add some hot sauce. Top with your bagel top slice.
Calorie and macros on this recipe: 328 calories, 28g carbs, 12g fat, and 30g protein. This is an awesome recipe in terms of versatility and nutrition. On the side I had around 100g of strawberries.
I made Jake’s with two whole eggs, over hard, and some salami from the deli. His and hers breakfasts.
