So yesterday I started craving one of my favorite, incredibly unhealthy breakfasts: A sausage and cheese croissant from Burger King.
Well, add a small hashbrown, and we have a meal of over 640 calories, without adding the condiments for my coffee.
So, I snagged a box of small croissants from Kroger yesterday, and this morning... I made my OWN breakfast sandwich.
1 small croissant, no extra butter or anything: 171 calories.
Banquet turkey sausage patties: 2 on the sandwich, 2 on the side (yes, 4!): 180 calories.
1 slice of Borden 2% cheese: 50 calories.
So. With FOUR patties instead of one regular, I'm sitting on 401 calories.
So I get to have my favorite breakfast, with more meat, so it's more filling, and it's way better for me. Plus, I'm saving gas and not paying $3 for the privilege! This whole thing cost me maybe .75, considering the price of the much larger boxes here.
This is what making healthy choices are all about. Enjoying the things you love, but *better!*
