Greek Breakfast Cups


At the beginning of every year, Dean always goes on a low fat/reduced carb diet to lose the pounds he had packed on during the holiday season (which for Dean starts in October with Halloween).  I always start the year with giving my liver a vacation by cutting out meat, poultry fish and gluten.  I then follow it up with a low calorie diet to lose a few pounds.

The next few weeks of recipes will be the inspired by our current life style shift from just low fat to also eating in a more healthful way.  Hopefully, you will also be inspired and check out how tasteful a healthy meal can be.

  1. Delicious! Love your quip about the holiday season beginning with Halloween. Spinach and feta is such a great flavor combination, and I think sets the palate for the day. Pretty for company too. Thanks

  2. I?m impressed, I have to say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that?s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the issue is one thing that not sufficient persons are talking intelligently about. I’m very glad that I stumbled throughout this in my search for something referring to this.

  3. Dina,

    After stepping on the scale to discover almost 10 pounds that hadn’t been there before and finding out my cholesterol (sp?) is high, I am also making a SINCERE effort to eat healthier and lose the lbs.

    I decided to go back to Weight Watchers because it has worked for me, and I just noticed that your recipes have points. Are those Weight Watchers points?

    I really appreciate your recipes, and I always look forward to see how you modify traditionally high calorie, high fat recipes to make them healthier.

    I know where I’m going to look when it comes to our Superbowl Party.

    Thanks again,
    Ingrid

    1. Hi,

      Those are Weight Watchers points listed. However, Weight Watchers changed their plan in January so I had to stop with the points since I no longer know how to calculate points with the new system. If you are back on Weight Watchers & have one of their devices, you can probably enter in the calories & fat & it may calculate for you?

      Good luck, it is so frustrating but you will get back to yourself again…never give up:)
