Cheesy Eggs & Rice

 

Ok maybe eggs are for breakfast, but I like to eat them at any time of day soo I included them for lunch. I love this recipe because it only has 3 ingredients, 4 if you include Mrs. Dash to season the eggs!


Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup… classic and simple. Not much more to say!

Protein Nachos… you don’t have to give up your favorite foods, just clean em up a bit! This version is packed with protein!

Chicken Quesadilla… another one of my tex-mex favorites. Xtreme tortillas are a game changer in the calorie department!

Chicken Ranch Wrap… I didn’t mention it in the recipe since it’s zero calories, but add buffalo sauce or hot sauce, you won’t regret it!

Charcuterie (Cheese) Plate… I love making this when I just want to “snack” on lunch instead of eat a bigger meal. You can mix it up with any flavor of laughing cow and stay under your calories.

Food Under 400 is a compilation of super simple recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, all under 400 calories. I inserted photos of the exact ingredients, calories, and macronutrient breakdown so you can see all the details. The best part? Soups, salads, or green juices are nowhere to be found on this list! So if you’re diet is starting to get bland and boring, throw one of these recipes together.

Banana Pancakes… I like to top mine with sliced bananas instead of adding them to the batter. You can even use the same ingredients and turn them into waffles!

Yogurt Berry Parfait… I eat this almost every single day of the week. Topping your fruit and yogurt with cereal instead of granola is a HUGE calorie saver on this one.

PB Breakfast Sammies… simple swaps keep this recipe low in calories. Nature’s Own Bread and PB2 are to thank! I like to fry all THREE sandwiches up in a pan so they are nice and warm.

Cinnamon Crunch Cereal… this one is as plain and simple as they come. Blend your protein shake and pour over cereal!

Eggs, Turkey Bacon, and Buttery Toast… a real traditional breakfast that saves room for butter AND fits in your diet! For the egg whites 15 tbsp. = 1 cup.

Bagel & Bacon… love this one because it’s simple to make when you’re on the go!

Hearty Oatmeal… this recipe always reminds me of cozy winter time. Try microwaving your apple slices with cinnamon before tossing them into your oatmeal!

*My Fitness Pal calculates and recalculates serving sizes on some items and not others. 1/2 cup oats should actually be 1 full cup uncooked.
