Recipe of the Week: Egg White Sandwich
I’m trying this new thing at the dorm. It’s called exercise – and it’s horrible. I finally caved in to my innate desire to eat all the chocolate in my sight, and the results were disastrous to say the least. Being healthy is going to take a lot more than just attempting to eat right, it’s about drinking lots of water (no more soda), and exercising!
I know, of course, that this is all common sense. But exercising has never been a hobby of mine. I could go on to blame the fact that I never belonged to a gym, the cold weather, the hot weather, the days I was under-the-weather…but let’s be honest: those are excuses! Being healthy is not just a diet; it’s a way of life.
Despite the huge floor-to ceiling windows overlooking the weights and treadmills in the dorm lobby, I practically forgot the gym existed. So this week I decided to revisit the gym and exercise for an hour. I only lasted forty-five minutes, but that’s still something!
To continue on the healthy trend, I decided to look up some foods that were non-fatty and high in protein and discovered the beauty of egg whites. Yes I know anyone who’s ever wanted to lose weight or exercise has already discovered this. However, I felt it was important to acknowledge why egg whites are so popular in the weight loss world. Egg whites are high in protein, but low in fat, which helps you build muscle without gaining weight. Of course, these aren’t the only factors to consider when trying maintaining a balanced diet. This leads me to my next recipe: Egg white sandwich! This sandwich is great for brunch. It will fill you up and keep you energized for a long time. (I feel inclined to tell you guys, I am not a nutritionist, and this recipe will not guarantee that you will lose weight. It is just a fun recipe to try involving egg whites.)
