for my bacon-loving boyfriend.
For the sake of love, we all must admit that our boyfriends might be able to eat a lot more unhealthy than we can and feel no regret or face any consequences in terms of weight or emotion. This can pose a problem. Often, our eating habits change when we are in a relationship. It can lead to becoming unhealthy because we go out to eat all the time, bake cookies together or snack each night before bed. On the other hand, some people are missing out on all the treats in fear of becoming the fat gf. I will definitely say that my boyfriend could eat all day, every day and still look the same. He might hit the gym hard and often, but even the emotional side of eating is much different for him. He could eat bacon for breakfast, lunch and dinner and not feel bloated, crampy and pissy…
(That SlimQuick ad puts it so perfectly….)
To work through our own lifestyles and food choices, without letting it affect our relationships, cooking is a great release. You can search for super-healthy recipes that you both enjoy. It’s a win-win: he got a meal, you didn’t feel like you were giving up your healthy diet or like you were missing out on a treat. However, don’t forget men are human. They enjoy indulging, just like we do. I found this recipe that might be on the unhealthy side of dishes but looks too good to pass up, for his sake and mine.
I am going to attempt this meal next time we have breakfast together (basically because he loves bacon and eggs at all hours):
Bacon & Eggs in Toast Cups
▪6 slices of bread
▪1/2 cup of shredded cheese
▪salt & pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray muffin pan with butter non-stick spray.
2. Using a cookie cutter, cut circles out of bread slices about 3 inches in diameter.
3. Take bread circles and press them into the muffin pan, set aside.
4. Heat a large skillet on medium-high. Cook bacon on the skillet until partially cooked but still pliable, about 3 minutes.
5. Shape bacon strips into the toast cups, fill with 1 Tbs of shredded cheese. Place in the oven for 5 minutes, allowing the bacon to toast just a little more. Remove from oven.
6. Crack your egg and separate out most of the egg white. Drop eggs into the cups, sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste. Place back in the oven and cook until white begins to set, about another 8 – 10 minutes. The yolk should be creamy.
7. Remove from oven when done and pop out using a spoon, serve warm.
