{everything but the bagel eggs // calorie saving tips + tricks}

Happy first day of May! And hump day! Whoop Whoop! I grabbed a bottle of chardonnay from Trader Joe’s and it’s kickin it in the fridge as I type. Thank sweet baby Jesus lent is finally over! This week is absolutely nuts, so wine is definitely on the menu! I grabbed a few new finds at TJ’s and I’ll be reviewing on Instagram stories tonight. Possibly Friday 5 this week too. Stay tuned!

Before we get started, there are a few item you’ll need that you probably wont already have on hand. The donut pan. The Misto, which isn’t necessary, just want I prefer. Everything but the bagel seasoning. Which I believe you can now get by the gallon at Costco?

These eggs are so good. And so easy. Great to make in advance for breakfast for the week. And you need 3 ingredients! Each egg donut is 1 weight watchers point. I serve with a side of butternut squash zig-zags and arugula and to make my breakfast 2 point total….if I eat two egg donuts. Which I typically do.

I’m not going to lie, I’ve been a terrible weight watcher lately. Vacation and this crazy week have kicked my ass. Oh yeah, and adding booze back into my diet. Dammmnnnn, why does wine have to be so many point? Isn’t it grapes? lol. But, I promised myself that after this week, I’m getting back on 100%. Summer is coming and I’ve got some cute suits and clothes that I plan to rock. Ha. That’s my motivation.

{everything but the bagel eggs}

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 pint (16 oz.) liquid egg whites or about 12 large egg whites
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons everything but the bagel seasoning (I dig Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat cream cheese
  • hot sauce

Here’s what you do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare a 6 cavity Donut Pan (I used a Misto filled with Seka Hills olive oil) pam works too.

In a bowl, stir cream cheese till smooth. Whisk in egg whites till combined.

Evenly distribute egg whites into donut pan.

Sprinkle with everything but the bagel seasoning.

Bake for about 20 minutes until eggs are set.

Top with your fave hot sauce and dig in!

Enjoy!

I love to serve these along side Trader Joe’s butternut squash zig-zags roasted in the oven with a little olive oil and Trader Joe’s Chile Lime seasoning.

This is a great Weight Watchers recipe to meal prep and have on hand. I even had this for lunch one day too. Over a big green salad. Delish! I do have some other tips for saving on calories below……

Calorie Saving Tips + Tricks //

Water, Water, Water: Drink a big ass glass of water or hot tea before your meal. I always do this at lunchtime. Does anyone else feel ravenous around noon? Typically I eat breakfast by 6 am….so come 12, watch the F out! Ha! This helps me slow the hell down and not inhale my lunch before I have a chance to feel full.

Zero Point Snacks: I try my hardest to keep snacks to zero points ONLY. This doesn’t always happen though. Have you googled zero point foods? There are a shit-ton. Hard boiled eggs. Pickles. Pepperoncinis. Roasted garbanzo beans. Carrot + celery dipped in salsa. Apples sprinkled with cinnamon. Edamame. Worst case, I go to 1 point snacks. Hummus. String cheese. PB2. Rice crackers.

Swap Dressings: One of my favorite ways to keep my salads healthy is to skip the dressing. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE ranch dressing with all my heart. But, dammit, why does it have to be the devil? You can save hundreds of calories by using salsa instead. And I’ve gotten so used to it that I really don’t mind anymore. I’ll use the Chobani Greek Yogurt used here: {healthy-ish chicken salad} with salsa for a creamier salsa. Try it!!!

Dip it: If you’re like nah girl, I’m having my ranch no matter what. Then dip it, don’t pour it. Honestly, I always pour a little too much. I like to dip and drizzle or dip my fork then scoop up a bite. I notice that I use WAYYY less dressing dippin.

Chop it up: Instead of a traditional salad, try a chopped salad. All the flavors get dispersed so I feel like I almost don’t need a dressing.

Go Bread-less: lettuce wrapped everything. I’ve even been skipping the tortillas. I love the crunch you get from the greens. Even tried a portabello mushroom for a bun and it was legit. My new love for Joseph’s Pitas are REAL. 1 weight watchers point each. Even Cory is hooked on them. I can ONLY find them at Walmart.

Blot it: Pizza, that is. I read that you can soak up 40 calories of oil by using a napkin on hot pizza. That’s worth a blot, if you ask me. I’ve also been trying to embrace the veggie toppings in lieu of meat. Because this girl has gotta find a way to still eat pizza weekly!

PB2: Are you a sucker for peanut butter? Me too! Pick up some PB2. It takes a bit to get used too, but I’ve grown to really dig it and look forward to it. I’m not a fruit person, like at all. Lately, I’ve been dipping bananas and apples in my PB2 and it’s BOMB. If I have enough WW points at the end of the day, a chocolate rice cake topped with PB2 is absolute heaven.

Brush: Brush your teeth after your final meal or snack. Or just go to damn bed….lol. I’ve been know to do both! I swear that once I’ve brushed my teeth, my brain + heart know that the kitchen is closed for the night. And to be honest, nothing even tastes good once you’ve brushed your teeth anyway. #amiright

What are you calorie saver tips and tricks you swear by? I wanna know. Always looking for new ways to ditch a few calories!

Remember, you can now print the recipe.  “Pin” to your Pinterest board for safe keeping.  If you decide to give it a shot, pretty please – tag me.  Text me.  I can’t wait to hear what you think!!  100% makes my day ♥
