The Pink Method & P90X

The Pink Method & P90x 

A little background info. . .
Back in May of 2010, my husband started P90x and I have to say I was happy for him but it was terrible timing. I was 8 months pregnant with our second son, so while he was losing weight (30 lbs) and looking all sexy, I had gained 30lbs and was looking like a whale.
I was still really supportive and made all his meals and occupied our other son who was almost 2 so he could workout. Anyways P90x came with a meal plan to follow and I am not going to lie it was not that great!  Well after a month of him on P90x he wrecked his dirtbike, broke his leg and  completely tore his ACL. After 12 weeks of sitting on the couch he had put about 15lbs back on. 
Now it is January of 2012 and his knee is now 100% and . . . . 
We started P90x together!

  Ian and I started our workout routines January 17. We both started on P90X but I was really worried about looking kinda bulky like some of the women on the workout videos. So I switched to The Pink Method.  I patiently awaited its arrival while I continued P90x Well it finally came yesterday so today is day 1 of The Pink Method.  

My husband is still on P90x and the meals are still terrible, so I did lots and lots and lots of research and came up with meals that are healthy and follow the strict guidelines that P90x requires so I am going to post the recipes just in case there is anyone else out there who is on P90x and can't stand the meals! lol

One of the worst meals for me was a breakfast sandwich thing made with soy sausage patties, mozzarella cheese and a plain english muffin.

So here is my spin on it, and it actually has less calories and fat then the alternative.

Here we go! 

Canadian Bacon, White Egg English Muffin!

First get all your ingredients together.
This is to make 1 English muffin. (goes with the 1800 calorie plan) 
6 TBS Egg Whites 50calories, 0g fat, 2g carbohydrates, 10g protein
  1slice of Canadian Bacon 20 calories, .5g fat, .5g carbohydrates, 5g protein
1 English Muffins 100 calories, 2.5g fat
1/2 slice Provolone/Mozzarella mixed cheese 30calories, 2.5g Fat,0g carbohydrates, 2 protein
8oz Silk light milk

Directions: Start toasting the english muffin, while the english muffin is toasting pour the 6 egg whites into a hot skillet and scramble. As soon as the eggs are not running anymore, place the Canadian bacon in the pan away from the eggs, to allow it to heat up. Everything should finish around the same time. Place the cheese slice on the english muffin add the egg and Canadian bacon and top with the other english muffin and you are ready to go!

You finish product should look something like this!
