    HI Lisa. I’m bowing at your omelette making skills. I’ve had limited success making them myself. I love reading food blogs because I get great ideas for healthy meals. Have a wonderful Thursday.

      I was shocked that I successfully made that omelette and that I was able to recreate it another day. I was pretty proud of myself, to be honest.

      My Thursday is great so far because it’s my Friday!

    Well, I love food and food blogs 😀

    I actually like to see what other people eat, particularly maintainers – and there are very few maintainers that blog food.

    I do sometimes have to remove blogs from my reader because they can be triggering for me in some way – either that I can’t believe someone can eat as much as they do and be so tiny or the eating seems very disordered (to me) and I don’t want to watch that happen.

      I like seeing what other people eat too and you’re right–not many maintainers document that. I stopped doing it because I felt like it was boring. And I eat the same food all the time. How many posts can I write about my chicken and broccoli dinner? 🙂

      I agree with some of the bloggers that seem disordered. There’s one that I really want to like because I’ve been reading her for a long time and used to like her but she eats an insane amount of junk food, processed food and fast food. It’s not quite a “trigger” for me but I feel like it’s bordering on the binge eating I used to do. So far I can take a step back and not associate it with my old habits, but of course there are days when I’m not as strong!

    I like to see what people eat. I like to see a typical day- especially for a maintainer. It gives me good ideas when I can’t think of anything.
    I am an omelet maker! Sometimes they turn into scrambled eggs too- but usually I make beautiful omelets! I prefer egg white omelets….

      Do you have any tips for omelets?

      Thanks for letting me know! I might start blogging more about some of the food of the day as a maintainer.

        I will try to explain… hold your pan and swirl it around once the egg starts cooking. Then I use a spatula to kind of push down the sides a little to make room for uncooked egg. I then swirl again. I continue to repeat this process until the egg has mostly set. Then I “try” and flip the omelet with the spatula. I am not daring enough or I don’t use enough oil to flip it in the air. I let it cook for a minute and then I add my toppings and fold it over. I read about it once- I will look for the link. I hope this didn’t confuse you even more!!! 🙂

          I’ll try that the next time I make one. I’ve never attempted flipping it. I think that’s where I’d get into trouble!

    I gave up on omelets a long time ago- I just scramble it all together and call it good… lol. I have thought about buying one of those fancy omelet pans though on occasion.

      Scrambles are definitely easier and quicker!
