French Toast

Have you ever wondered why french toast has gotten such a bad rap? It’s just bread, eggs, and milk! The key to this and other similar breakfast foods (pancakes, waffles, etc.) is what you drizzle over them. If you make them with whole wheat bread and egg whites, and keep it to honey or pure …

Grapenuts Berry Crumble

Sorry for the crappy camera-phone picture. Can’t find my battery charger! Anyway, here is another P90x dessert option. I am a huge fan of Grapenuts cereal. Not in its normal teeth-shatteringly-crunchy state, but after it’s been softened by milk and heat. It just seemed like it’d make a perfect ingredient for a “crumble” or cobbler …

X-y Oatmeal

Hi guys, d’ya miss me?! Judging from the multitude of forlorn emails I’ve received in the past two weeks, I’m guessing so. (OK, so maybe it was only ONE forlorn email, but I’m assuming that for every one email I receive there are hundreds of you who missed me and were too lazy to write! …

Christy’s Whole Wheat Crepes

OK guys, this is another super exciting one! The whole wheat crepe is an awesome invention, because it is so thin that it is not much on the carb front, and yet it can be filled with oh-so-many tasty fillings. Make them sweet, and they are breakfast or dessert crepes – fill them with meat …

Crustless Ham and Spinach Quiche

Yay for cottage cheese! Once again, cottage cheese has swooped in to save one of our favorite, typically-cheese-laden dishes – the quiche. And it is now low-carb and P90x-friendly to boot! This came out really flavorful and tasty – my hubby thought it had the perfect amount of seasonings, and he usually adds salt to …

Angela’s Protein Pancakes

Ok, all together now – “Thank you, Angela!!” =) This P90x protein pancake recipe that fellow P90xer Angela sent me is SO good! I’m usually a Bisquick snob – I was raised on it, so all other pancake recipes taste weird. But these are really delicious! I didn’t have plain protein …

Muffin Cup Frittatas

Sorry about the lame camera-phone photo – my battery charger for my nice camera has disappeared. You get the idea anyway! lol. Try out these tasty egg muffins – they are a great use for whatever vegis or meats you happen to have on hand, and they make for an easy, portable P90x …

Ingredients:

6 oz. top sirloin or flank steak 3 egg whites 1 Tb. BBQ sauce (I use Bullseye Original Flavor) 1 tsp. Worchestershire …

Heat skillet over medium heat, and spray …

Herbed Cottage Cheese Spread

Wondering what to eat on your wheat bagel or 2″ x 4 3/4″ potato? 😉 Look no further than this tasty cottage cheese spread. I can’t take full credit for this one – my parents were on the Atkins diet as a kid and we’d have this all the time – …

Pepper Jack Breakfast Sandwich

One of the best things about cooking for the P90x fitness plan is that you learn how to substitute for oil and butter. This breakfast sandwich is a prime example: normally I’d butter the English muffin, but the softened nonfat pepper jack takes its place nicely!

Ingredients:

3 egg …
