D lights.

Why use egg whites? Why use "reduced fat" cheese? Why use turkey sausage? What use is it? Why eat it? Why make it? Why me? Why anyone? Why me?

Even end-stage alcoholism could not explain choosing this product.

Hm

This just leaves your previous effort at "bleak photography" in the dust, doesn't it. Where the hell are you shopping, anyway?

They make it for people like me who are trying to lose weight!

It tastes good, btw.

Losing weight by eating this stuff is not going to be a long term success. Have you heard of Engine Number 2? http://engine2diet.com/28-day-tools/week-1/
It's plant based nutrition made VERY easy. :)

I've followed weight watchers for over a year, but I'll check out this link when I get home as I can always use more ideas. ;o)

btw, Please don't think I eat this stuff EXCLUSIVELY. In fact I've only had that product once, but it's good for when I'm craving a homestyle breakfast without the homestyle lard.

This guy is pretty great, and if you have a whole foods nearby, they're doing a project with him where he will put a sticker on their products that meet his guidelines for nutrition and weight loss. He is vegan, but the diet isn't "for vegans." It's made for omnivores who like meat but want to feel better and get healthy. He uses some fake meats, but as a gateway. The end result is no animal products, but the route is SIMPLE. His website has free pantry planners and recipes, too!

No Whole Foods here. I think they're a West Coast chain, yeah? Sadness...
I'm an omnivore but do eat fake meat whenever. Tempeh's about the only substitute I don't really care for.

ok i can see this

but i can't see buying a pre-made bowl thingy. i have all the ingredients for this (other than the reduced fat cheese, which doesn't melt well and doesn't have much flavor beyond salty) RITE NAO. which makes me FIRST WORLD AW-YEAH

so how *is* the texture of this, seriously?

Re: ok i can see this

The original idea (sausage, egg, cheese) is basic enough. It's the execution that's the issue.

I did not purchase and try this. You may experiment if you wish; get photos. I'll be behind this concrete bunker.

Re: ok i can see this

Not bad. The primary taste is of the potatoes. The eggs are a little dry, which one would expect from a frozen food. The cheese is good (keep in mind though I've been eating reduced fat cheese for an age) and the turkey sausage is GREAT.

Everyone loses weight differently. This would work for me due to powerful emetic forces but that isn't optimal :D

Hey, whatever works. Like I said earlier, I don't LIVE off of this particular meal or anything - but I have had it and would eat it again.

Re: no shame!

So will I. Sometimes I'm poor and they're on sale. It happens.
