Chilaquiles: A Healthy Alternative

I am finally home! I am in Florida! I have a kitchen! The world is good!

Anyway, after being in a Michigan staying with my in-laws for 5 wks we are in a new home! It is an older home. It was built in the 50's and I love it! It is open for the kiddos to run. It has a huge kitchen that is wide open. I can watch the kids from every angle!

I have been here a week. I have been unpacking. Decorating. Cooking (My husband has not had a home cooked meal in 5 wks!). I even found time to build a small garden!!! I can't wait to see the outcome. I bought my 5 yr. old some gloves, shovel and rake. She planted Thyme, Rosemary, Basil, Oregano, Parsley, Cilantro, Tomatoes, Green Beans, Lettuce, Carrots and Onions with me. Alex and I had a fantastic time planting. Now, I need patience.

On another positive note, while I was in Michigan I lost 12 lbs!!! I am now at my normal weight! I am not cutting out all my favorite foods, but I am going to post a few more healthier recipes. But my husband loves the man food too.....

This morning I made my husband:
Chilaquiles from Cook Yourself Thin Faster by Lauren Deen
2 Lg. Eggs
2 Egg Whites
1 tsp. Canola Oil ( I did not use oil, because I have an incredible Calaphalon Non Stick set.)
1 tomato, diced
1 scallion, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
1/3 cp. crushed tortilla chips
1/4 cp. Monterrey jack cheese.

salt and pepper.

I topped it with my homemade salsa.

1. Heat oil and the beated eggs. When the eggs are partly set add the tomatoes, scallions, chiles, and chips. Cook and eggs are almost set. Add the salt and pepper. Top with cheese and salsa.

This serves four ppl. at 110 calories or my husband at the entire plate with a whopping 440 calories! Enjoy!!
