It seems so counter intuitive. In order to feel well and digest my food it’s out with the brown (healthy whole grains with fiber) and in with the white. I like to joke: salad=bad, poptarts=good. I’m still uncomfortable with all the processed white food so I try to get my starch from bananas, baby food peas, mashed white and sweet potatoes with a few servings of white pita bread, pretzels, baked potato chips and assorted crackers. I confess to indulging in the occasional low fat poptart (great for throwing in a carry-on when traveling) and pancakes are easy to order when out at a restaurant or when I don’t quite know what I want and its getting late. This week I grabbed a box of low fat toaster waffles while marketing…easier than making pancakes for one and they inspired the following dinner.
Serves 1 but can be easily multiplied
1 low fat frozen toaster waffle
1 triangle light Laughing Cow cheese (any flavor -I used Swiss)
cooked and drained chopped spinach
1 or 2 Poached eggs
Toast waffle and spread with Laughing Cow cheese. Top with spinach and poached egg(s).
