NOTES ABOUT THIS MEAL:
* The egg can be scrambled without fat, boiled, or grilled with cooking spray. Or you may use the margarine to cook the egg and eat the toast with sugar free jam or jelly.
*Low calorie bread has about 40 calories per slice; substitute 2 slices for 1 slice regular bread
*Choose sugar free, fat free yogurt with less than 100 calories per serving
*Eat non starchy vegetables without added fat as desired.
*Use mustard (free food) instead of mayo and save the fat for dinner
*Soft tub margarine's are lower in saturated and trans fats than butter or stick margarine.
I WISH YOU AND I BOTH GOOD LUCK!
