    I like eggs on my bagel [​IMG]
    I wonder why it says just adults.

    I like Ben and Jerry's ice cream - even on a bagel, ticks, but no egg please. How far away from B&J are you?? [​IMG]

    Quote:they only did the study on adults. maybe they will do one for obese children. that would be a good help to many.

    i like eggs on a bagel too! guess we could do our own study...maybe we'll lose weight if we eat more eggs on the bagel![​IMG]

    I never read that about cooking a scrambled egg in a mug in the microwave. Might have to give that a try...

    Quote:when microwave cooking became the big thing in the 80's, we used to make scrambled eggs in a bowl all the time. they are not nearly as yummy as made on the stove, but it is super fast and easy to clean up.

    happy scramblin'![​IMG]

    I almost bought a microwave poached egg cooker this weekend. We love making poached eggs on the stove but I just couldn't see that they be any good microwaved.

    Quote:Probably because they assume that it's the adults that need to loose weight.


    I cook 4 fried eggs and 4 pieces of toast for breakfast every morning. I eat the egg whites and just a smidgen of the yolk that happens to get on my bread and 2 pieces of the toast. I feed the other two pieces of toast along with the yolks to my two dogs.

    For some reason I can’t seem to digest egg yolk...I love the stuff but it causes me serious intestinal distress. So I get a little taste of it...just enough to satisfy and the dogs get the rest.

    Edited to add:

    I forgot to add that I've lost almost 20 pounds since July 4th...I have my eggs for breakfast, fruit for lunch and then a pretty normal supper but I just try to watch my portions. I then allow myself to have a snack of fruit before bed time. Has worked for me
