Mathematical Meals

The alarm woke me up bright and early again this morning.  After 9 hours of sleep, I could have used some more time in my bed.  When I was young and fun, I used to spend my weeks recovering from a wild weekend.  These days, I seem to spend my weekend resting up from a busy work week, and after this last week, two days off was not enough!  But I had a full day planned, starting with a training session and then a few hours at the office, so I dragged myself out of bed to begin my day.  Math has always been my favorite subject, so I thought it would be fun to share today’s meals in mathematical form. 

No Calculators Needed! Happy Adding!

 

 

Breakfast

 

Last week, I introduced Oats On-the-Run.  This morning’s breakfast could be considered Eggs On-the-Run.  Baked eggs take a little bit longer, but are super easy and allow you to walk away from the stove.  You can use any veggies you want.  In the summer time, my favorites are leftover grilled veggies.  This morning, it was steamed broccoli with one of the BEST seasonings around!

 

I think my pie pan gets more use with eggs than pies. 

New Cooking Spray + Amazing Eggs + Veggies = perfect start to the morning!

Mix eggs, broccoli, and seasoning together.  You can add cheese or nutritional yeast too!

I snacked on some millet puffs with flax and blueberries while I waited.
