In these videos I work with no script, and as a result I tend to make some verbal errors. For example while making this recipe, although I actually used 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, I said 1 Tablespoon. The written recipe is always correct. If there are differences between my specific words in any video, and the instructions in my written recipe, ALWAYS choose to follow the recipe.

The naturalness of your videos is one of the most appealing aspects about them. I usually have srambled eggs (egg whites & salsa as a topping instead of cheese) on Saturday morning. Need to try this one with the bacon and one egg and 1/2 oz of shredded cheese for a nice change. Strawberries & blackberries on the side instead of the sweet muffin the rest of the family eats. I haven't found the need to to transport an egg dish when traveling. If there is an omelet bar, it is easy enough to use that. Otherwise, I bring pancakes. I need to think about this as another alternative. I figured out how to microwave a scrambled egg while traveling. I think using this recipe with precooked bacon would be a very nice addition especially during our beach vacation. I travel quite a bit. So I am always looking for ways to bring or make delicious foods I can enjoy while the rest of the family or DH is eating off of the buffet at the place we are staying. I will not stay on plan if I feel sorry for myself watching them eat high cal/carb and my food is sad. Rather, I happily eat my meals because they are both tasty at the time and my body feels good long after I am done chewing. While traveling, ften times I am in a suite with a mini kitchen. This helps in my food choices. Have a beautiful day, Phyllis:-)

             Thanks, Karen, I always appreciate your comments. Natural is the only thing I know how to be, and I have many natural flaws. Not feeling deprived is a really big issue for me also. I prefer lodgings with some type of kitchen when I travel. When traveling by car, I sometimes put a tiny one-burner hot-plate ($10) and a very small microwave ($30) in my trunk...along with a small ice chest (minimal). Also, I ALWAYS take or get some zip-lock bags of various sizes. These items don't even need to come out of the car unless I wish to use them. Even when I travel by air, there's always a WallMart or some other inexpensive store around, and if I spend $50 or so on items I'm not going to take home with me, on a long trip I've still saved the money I'd spend in restaurants or the hotel charge for extra equipment. I usually give the items I leave behind to some hotel staff member, who seems to appreciate it. In this way, I find it easy to prepare simple tasty food for myself while traveling if I choose to do so. In fact...I sometimes feel deprived if I have to eat a hotel meal rather than food I've prepared myself. However, when I travel, I don't prepare food for others...just for me. I also don't share my food cooking or storage equipment. The others have to make do with restaurant food. The only place I've found this not to work is on Cruises, and there are so many tasty food options available there, it isn't an issue for me.

You probably have more ideas than time for articles and videos but a traveling series would be very helpful especially with the summer months heading our way. Many people think it is impossible to lose or maintain while traveling. I have been successful at both, however, for me there is always something new to learn or try. I like to think through difficult food challenges and I know the Cruise will be one. However, I am also watching Netflicks to get ideas on what to see, what clothes to bring, again really think through the details so that I can enjoy my trip of a lifetime:-)

             Karen, I love Cruise vacations, but, for me, they truly are the biggest type of food challenge. Lots of delicious food everywhere, all the time, and all totally free.

I made these today along with the oamteal muffins. I liked the crumbled bacon through the egg dish. A nice way to have a controlled bacon taste. Eating one piece of bacon seems a bit sad, to me, but having pieces througout the dish, seemed decadent. I also brought my measuring cups for 1/2 oz cheese. I have not had cheese topped eggs, in over a year. It had been a staple forever. It just seemed that is the way scrambled eggs should be. With CC, I abandoned it in favor of salsa. I am glad you reminded me there is a middle way, 1/2 oz. It was enough cheese to seem smoothered without going the full 100 cals. We ate breakfast later today, DH was judging state science fair and the rest of us wanted to sleep in. I had more of a brunch, with the ggs, muffin, and fresh berries (70gm). A lot of gorgeous food that will take me to dinner, 6-7 hours later.

Made this today. I had cooked up some bacon and saved a slice. I really enjoyed a satisfying breakfast all morning as we were running kids and errands all morning long. My accompaniment was berries (70 gm mixed) while family has boxed muffins. Watching your videos and reading your blogs is a treat I look forward to each day.
