Eggzilla! And A New Web Fave

I first saw the Hungry Girl, Lisa Lillien, on the Rachel Ray show. She's a real foodie, and had these amazing tips and tricks on ways to save calories and fat on the show, so I couldn't wait to check out her website. The other day, I decided to sign up for her daily emails and am loving them. I learned to make these egg scrambles in a mug in the microwave using egg substitute and low fat veggies and meats (very low opposed to my other mug creation that was a total diet buster! see it here).

I used some leftover green onion, cilantro and avocado from last nights chili, and added some salsa to the eggs. In the microwave, it began to grow and grow and sort of turned into an "eggzilla" for minute there!

But after just a couple of minutes, it was done...all in the cup! I decided to warm up a tortilla and added the egg mixture and a little more salsa for a breakfast burrito. I even had over half of the egg mixture left, so I can eat it again tomorrow. It was very filling, despite being so low in calories, that I wasn't even hungry again until the late afternoon.

Check out and sign up for her free daily emails and tips and tricks. I think you'll be glad you did.

Thanks for sharing my friend. It seems today's theme is what can we cook in a mug. Never knew the things that could be eaten out of them. I always use mine for coffee. ;-)

Eggzilla - you are too funny! I'm sorry I missed your IM on FB yesterday - I must have just turned it off - we were headed to my boys basketball games last night. Take care & have a great day.

I love Hungry Girl!! I borrowed her cookbook from the library and Keith bought it for me for my b'day last year. My only beef is that the serving sized are so small for our family of 7. I have to multiply them by 10. The cake in a cup looks yummy!!
