The 140 Calorie Breakfast. Here’s The Recipe. Real Easy.

140 Breakfast

(The author is a psychotherapist who lost 140 lbs. when he developed his methods, and he’s kept it off for over 30 years. Read about his method in his book at the right, or listen to his audiobook, free sample provided here.)

After posting the blog about the 140 calorie breakfast versus the 1730 calorie breakfast, I got lots of messages asking me what it was and how to make it. So, here it is.

It’s a vegetable omelette made with onion, red and green peppers, mushrooms, 2 portions of Egg Beaters and a slice of low calorie toast.

Use a small sauce pan to cook the veggies, starting with a little Pam. Cook at a low to medium heat, covered, and add a little water if needed to prevent burning. You are actually steaming them, mainly in their own juices.

When they are tender to your taste, pour in the Egg Beaters (1/2 cup), cover again, and put your slice of bread in the toaster.

When the toast pops up, your omelette should be just about done. You want it to be solid, not liquidy, on top. Fold the omelette over and put it on the plate.

Since I’m a big fan of You Can’t Believe Its Not Butter spray, people have asked if I use that on toast. Nope. It’s doesn’t work. I use Brummel and Brown spread, like low cal margarine, but better. (Thanks Trish).

Enjoy! And if you haven’t read my book yet, don’t forget to order a copy. It’s on Amazon, both paperback and Kindle, and now an audiobook too.

Have you considered starting a user group just for TAM recipes or even a side page to this page? It would be so nice to have a place to share recipes and our favorite meal combinations.

You can have a single burger instead of a double at Shake Shack or order from the “Skinnys” menu at Potbelly, which has sandwiches with fewer than 400 calories.
