Breakfast for Dinner? Why not!












One of my favorite meals consist of food that is normally served at breakfast. I have found out that my lifestyle changes were more effective if I ate a healthy lighter breakfast and saved this scrumptious meal for dinner. With just a little variation I have turned a "heart attack waiting to happen" into a meal that reflects my goals for a fitter fifty. This is Fabulous Fifties Dining at its finest!
We do a Sam's Club  run for groceries once a month. This helps us manage our food budget so much better. We only shop locally for produce and necessities.
