It is very inexpensive and you should be able to find it at a bulk store or health-food store. I get mine at a bulk store (Bulk Barn), but I'm in Canada. You can also blend it in with your yogurt.
Now that is a good idea! I will mix some with my peanut butter, did not even realize that was an option. Thank you!!

There's no excuse to skip breakfast. These "eggs in a mug" recipes could go in the car with you.

Those look great, thanks for sharing! I will try those.

Today I had 1/2 pkg nature valley granola bar, greek yogurt, coffee & 1 slice of light wheat bread with pbj.

Tried some "walden farms" peanut spread. It said 0 calories. Didn't choke it down to well as it tasted like paste. Nasty! But, after tracking my food I was pleasently suprised how much it dropped my calories for breakfast. So, now I mix 1 tsp of regular pb with the wf peanut spread. Works out nicely. I am still getting my 13 grams of protein for breakfast.

I really like the idea that you can prepare many of them in a mug. A person could take the ingredients to work and pop the mug in the microwave while grabbing a coffee or tea, or, eat the "egg in a mug" while driving.

If you poke around on the site, there are a lot of good breakfast ideas that include protein and take less than 5 minutes to prepare. Have you found a source for nutritional yeast?

Not yet, but I will remember to bring some home from work tomorrow & sprinkle it in my yogurt, thanks for the reminder!

I had 2 eggs, like I have most days. Today I had them with tomato slices and a cup of fruit, mandarin oranges.

I started with a glass of tomato juice that was seasoned with the seasonings from the salsa, followed by two scrambled eggs with salsa (the bit that was too much for the jars, not enough for another jar), Swiss chard, and a side of Cavena Nuda--gosh, I love that stuff.

SO and I went out to a local diner yesterday for breakfast. She had a western omelet and hash browns. I had country fried steak with sausage gravy, home fries and eggs over easy.

No breakfast today.
