This was my mid-morning snack on day 9 of Phase 1. Low carb, low fat and high in taste. It takes a while to bake so it’s definitely something you want to prepare before you are hungry. I’d even say it’s a good portable morning snack. Pop it in the toaster oven or regular oven when you are getting ready for work and throw it in a Tupperware dish to be reheated at work. Perfect for the busy lady on the go! If food like this isn’t motivation to lose weight, I don’t know what is!
