Super Low Calorie
If you need to make up for labor Day celebrations, here is another super low calorie lunch idea for you. This is our 4th week of having only fruits and vegetables, nuts, yogurt and of course natures perfect protein, eggs (thank you dear Marty for supplying me with my organic, free range, fresh eggs every week). Husband is loosing weight faster than a jackrabbit on moonshine. Of course us girls have to work twice as hard and eat half as much, but that’s the price we pay for being smarter and so much more superior than men.
55 Calories Per Egg Yolk
You can easily eat the entire portion yourself with this recipe and you would still be at only 164 calories. If you add the yolks, which are full of wonderful nutrients, you must add an extra 55 calories per yolk.
Make Some for Later
Make enough for a few servings and store in an airtight container in the fridge. I served mine with organic pickled beets…( keep beets in the fridge in mason jars at all times in case you get really hungry and you want something right now, but keeps you on track with eating heathly and low calorie ) adding only 50 calories for 1/2 cup.

I don’t usually like non glass containers but these Go Green Tritan snap lock containers are well worth getting. These guys were sent me a set to review, but I said no thanks, I only use glass.
They told me that they are BPA free, freezer safe, super strong and stay clear even after being in the dishwasher. So I gave them a try. I have been using them for a year now and they have taken quite a beating. They have totally stood up to being thrown into the freezer and dishwasher and taken to school for lunches and opened and closed many times.
They have weathered the McGuiness storm dutifully and are still crystal clear. if you have hungry mouths to feed, you want to see what’s in your fridge and you are fussy about storage containers, these get the thumbs up.
