Blog to Lose

No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

As one of the lucky Blog To Lose Breakfast Blogger Giveaway winners, I guess you could say Roni (and Subway) treated me to breakfast Monday.

Being a carnivore, I had the Ham, Egg & Cheese Muffin Melt (3 WW Points).

Hmm ... the photo looks a little blurry. But that is basically what it looked like.

I had mine made with egg white and American cheese — but I had a little trouble choosing toppings. What do you put on an egg sandwich? Me, usually nothing.

But that would have made for an incredibly boring sandwich, so I decided to get adventurous: I had them add a little lettuce, onion, tomato, olives, green pepper and a tiny bit of mayo.

What? Lettuce on a breakfast sandwich? I know, I know. Who eats lettuce for breakfast? Certainly not usually me ... but it wasn't a totally unpleasant addition. The sandwich was pretty tasty. I paired it with some light lemonade, then headed over to Starbucks (my office away from home) to do some work on my RWA Golden Heart entry.

(Romance Writers of America sponsors this contest for unpublished authors every year ... finaling would be a huge honor; winning would be even better. I think my entries this year give me more of a chance.)

I was just rereading a story I started all the way back in 1999. It's not one of my GH entries, but it's very funny. It's about an alien (who's as human as Earthlings, just from a different planet) who falls for an Earth girl named Kyree, travels to her planet to woo her, wed her and take her back to his homeworld, where she finds herself eating sea lettuce for breakfast. I wrote: "Kyree swallowed a bite of sea lettuce, hoping she'd eventually get used to eating salad for breakfast."

Ree didn't like lettuce for breakfast then, and I'm still not a fan of it today. So next time I hit Subway for breakfast, I'll skip the lettuce.

But I'll definitely be going back for breakfast. If I'm lucky, the next Subway I try will have the hash browns ... the sandwich alone is tasty, but at just 3 Points, it's smaller than the 6- to 8-Point breakfasts I've gotten used to on the CarbLovers Diet.

P.S. For more on Subway breakfast items, including full nutritional stats, or on the new Subway Commit to Fit sweepstakes, done in conjunction with Jared's run in the NYC Marathon, visit Subway online or on Facebook.

Hey I eat green pepper slices and sliced cucumbers sometimes for my breakfast or early morning snack!! So yes, lettuce or spinach on a breakfast sandwich sounds good to me. I am wanting to try those hashbrowns too.

The Denver sounds good. Maybe I'll try that one with some of my leftover Subway cash.

Looks so good, I keep saying I'm going to go, and I have yet to do it!
