Each morning I pass by about 10 fast food restaurants with a line of cars circled around the building. Keep in mind, the parking lot is typically empty.
Honestly, it never fails, yet I will admit that I'm surprised each time I witness such an event.
Well, I'm astonished by the following:
A) That many people eat fast food
B) That many people are too lazy to get out of their cars and walk inside
C) That many people sit with their cars idling when gas is over $4.00 a gallon
I suppose you can blame it on convenience, or affordability - after all, it's easy to have someone else make your breakfast for a few bucks. But sooner or later, your waistline will start to pay the price.
Yes, I know I sound pretentious and self-righteous asshole.
I'm not above the law - I eat/enjoy fast food. Hell, I'll even go so far to admit that I crave a Wendy's Double Stack from time to time. However, I look at fast food as a 'treat' (thanks Mom) and not a solution.
Instead of making you feel guilty for your unhealthy habit, I'd rather provide you with a solution.
My breakfast sandwich will make you forget all about the McFatAss sandwich you pick up in the drive-thru each morning. The best part? Not only is this sandwich better for you - it costs less - and it takes less time to prepare than the amount of time you spend waiting in the drive-thru.
Better Breakfast Sandwich - NO, LOW, GO DIET approved!
1 Arnolds Thins Whole Grain Sandwich Bread
1 Large Egg
1 Slice Muenster Cheese
2 Thin Slices Deli Ham
Place the sandwich thins into a toaster for 30 - 45 seconds. Meanwhile, in a nonstick pan over medium high heat, fry egg (no oil or butter needed) for 3 - 4 minutes, or until egg reaches your desired preference. Season egg with salt and pepper. Next, add egg to toasted sandwich slice and top with ham and cheese. Add mustard (if desired) and top with the remaining slice of bread. Serve.
