Well, I took some great pictures of some foods that I have made & a new product find and for some reason, my USB port isn't functioning to allow me to download them....grrrrr!! So you will have to use your imagination now. My apologies....darned technology!!
So I have made the most delicious breakfast every morning for the past 3 days. Its nothing new to any of you I'm sure but I'm telling you, I have been enjoying it so much! 1/2 c egg beaters scrambled (0/0) with 1/2 oz melted 2% milk cheese (0/0), 2 slices turkey bacon (0/0), 1 slice Ezekial sesame sprouted bread toasted and 1 c chocolate unsweetened almond milk(0/) and my coffee. YUM YUM YUM!!! The total sugars is zero and the carb count is 18 so it is a 0/1 breakfast. What a bargain and I have a happy tummy ! I also had about 3 strawberries (1/2 c) sliced and a few blueberries. (6/1) totally worth it to enjoy the fruit with it!!
So the other day I went to Super Wal Mart and found these FLAT PITAS that are really fantastic! They are called Josephs Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Pita Bread. There are 6 flat bread "loaves" in each pkg and they were sooo cheap....only $2.08/pkg!!! The best part is , not only are they very good but there is no sugars in them and 1 flat bread is only 8 gms carb & 4gm of fiber and 60 calories so you could actually have 2 of them (they are the size of a lunch plate) and it will only count as 0/1 for 2!!! I made a pita pizza the past 2 nights in a row (I was gonna post a picture to show you how yummy it looked but as you know, my USB port is acting up!!)). Sooo...I took 1 flat pita (0/1), 2T pizza sce (2/0) 1 1/2 oz part skim mozzarella cheese (0/0) , 3/4 oz Hormel mini turkey pepperoni (0/0) and 1/4 cup canned mushrooms drained on top (0/0) and baked it on a piece of foil in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. I honestly felt like I was really enjoying "real" pizza. The taste was just awesome and although the "crust" was thin, it was great!!! I have tried the smart & delicious tortillas & I just don't care for them for some reason. I find halfway through whatever I am eating on it, I start getting "gaggy" & cant finish it. I just dont like the taste at all so this is a real saving grace to find such a carb friendly bargain!! If you see them, don't hesitate to buy them...they are worth it!
Not a whole lot going on here today. I am going to go pop an exercise DVD in and then shower & putz around the house. Have to take my oldest dtr to the oral surgeon for evaluation of wisdom teeth & whether or not they need to come out. She is NOT happy with me on this but her orthodontist wants her to have them removed and I told her that we didn't pay $5,000 for braces only to have them get shifted around because of her wisdom teeth. she doesn't see the point but then again, I am dumb as a box of rocks! haha! Didn't we all think our parents were that when we were teens? I remember thinking to myself "my mom doesn't know anything". Now, I think she is the most intelligent person on the planet! Funny how that changes when we go out on our own! I cant wait for the day when she sees that I always have her best interest at heart.
So that's about it for me today. I hope you are all having a great week! Only 2 more days til I weigh in and the dang scale hasn't budged an inch!! I really want to hit my 10% this week!! Gonna really step it up with exercise and being diligent. I have had a really great week food wise making good choices and staying on plan. Keep those fingers crossed and keep on keepin on my sista girlfriends!!!
