PART 3! Series: Labor? Easy. Getting into my old jeans? Not so much.



While I’m on my mission of getting my pre-pregnant jeans over my hips, I’ve been finding healthier recipe options. I’m known to eat my fair share of ice cream (yeah, yeah, yeah – bad choice. I know…), and I’ve been known to take recipes and transform them into a healthier/less calorie meal.

Take the lovely ham, egg and cheese sandwich, for instance. Whether your at your local bakery or a chain coffee shop, the little sandwich that you’re about to shove in your mouth is probably many more calories that you think it is. Take my advice and whip up this easy, delicious and healthy alternative!

Toast bread. Spread faux butter over 1 slice. Cook egg white in small skillet. Once cooked thoroughly, place egg whites on slice of toasted and buttered bread. Top ham slices and cheese slice over egg. Finish with second slice of toasted bread.
