My Favorite Breakfast and Snack

I have yet to find a dressing at Trader Joe's that isn't a hit. My new find will FOREVER be in our fridge. It's their low fat parmesan ranch found in the cold section just under $3 and 30 calories for 2 tablespoons. I like to pair this with celery or wraps or well... just about anything. Delicious snack for 50 calories.
My favorite quick and easy breakfast is a bagel with cream cheese and ham. Is this odd? I am not sure, but somehow the combo to me tastes great.

Everything bagel thin - 110
1 tbsp of 1/3 less fat Philadelphia cream cheese - 35
1 oz. of Boar's Head Black Forest Ham - 30
Makes a great 175 calorie breakfast. I could eat it practically EVERYDAY.

The BEST Wrap EVER!

Why yes I do enjoy the La Tortilla Factory 100 calorie tortillas I stumbled upon something new and I am TRULY IN LOVE!

Tumaro's Gourmet Tortillas New York Deli Style Wraps. They are 10" wraps, 96% fat free, 80 calories, and only 7 net carbs.

They come in all sorts of flavors. I snagged the sourdough and everything (garlic, onion, and poppy seed). I can't wait to try the cracked pepper next time.

These are BY FAR AMAZING and moist. The downfall for me is that only ONE store near me sells them and it's not a store I usually go to. However, the sell by date on my pack is June so I will go back and stock up no doubt. Check out their website and see where you can get your hands on these.

To my wrap I added:
Tumaro's Sourdough wrap - 80
1 tbsp light mayo - 35
.5 oz. of sharp cheddar cheese - 55
2 oz. of Boar's Head turkey - 60
1 cup of baby arugula mix - 4
Onion - 4
Tomato- 8

TOTAL = 246 calories

Back on Track

Another keeping it low day. Or more shall I say getting fully back on track day. Things have been crazy around here and I lost a bit of focus, I didn't go crazy or anything, but with being busy with some other stuff I wasn't counting each bite and was walking to the store for a Whole Foods pizza splurge with my boys. So needless to say my weight loss halted. Thankfully I didn't gain, but I haven't lost in a couple weeks which puts me behind schedule to reach my goal by next month. So HERE it goes! One month to lose 6 pounds. Sounds impossible and it probably is, but even if I get close I will still be proud of myself.

3 oz. of pineapple greek yogurt - 80

2 slices of Sara Lee Light bread - 90

Smucker's low sugar jam - 25

Fiesta Eggs

1/4 C egg substitute
1/2 oz. shredded reduced fat mexican blend cheese
2 tbs of store bought or homemade pico de gallo
1 tbs fat free sour cream

JUST 85 CALORIES!!

I scrambled the eggs almost completely then added in the pico de gallo for about 20 seconds, then mixed in the cheese at the very end and topped it with a dollop of sour cream. I LOVE Mexican food so anyway to get my spicy fix in the morning is all me. So satisfying and still room to add in some toast or a couple pieces of bacon.

Summer Salad

Have I mentioned I LOVE Summer? This salad takes me right back to a Summer day around the age of 8 at my Grammy's house. Meeting Papa on the corner from his "vanpool" from the city and walking back to the house to have dinner right at 5:30 then playing outside until the sun went down. We always made a salad to go with dinner, but in the Summer to use up those tasty backyard tomatoes they would be the focus of many a salads.

Tomatoes of any variety, red onion, and my favorite a can or garbanzo beans. My Gram always used to drizzle EVOO on it, but I opted out of that and just stuck with red wine vinegar and salt and pepper. So tasty, so satisfying, easy, and a great salad to bring to a BBQ. Enjoy!

Summertime Garbanzo Salad
4 tomatoes of ANY variety diced
1/2 red onion slivered
1 can of garbanzo beans
3 tbs of red wine vinegar
Generous sprinkle of salt and pepper
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (if you have the calories to spare, but great without)

Artichoke Pasta

Quick and easy two words a Mama likes at dinner time!

With the little jem you can also add the words cheap and tasty as well.

One jar of TJ's three cheese pasta sauce, a spoonful of minced garlic, 8 fresh basil leaves minced, and one can of artichoke hearts diced. Let it simmer for about 15 and serve over 1/2 cup of rigatoni and one tbs of parmesan cheese.

Total = 335 calories

I must admit the kiddos were not giant fans of the artichoke so next time I will keep them in larger chunks so they will not have as much on it. I really enjoyed this meal and the best part is I only spent around $6 for this and it would feed about 8 people. Even better part you can keep all these ingredients (minus the fresh basil) on hand for a night you are not sure what to fix or forgot to defrost something.

Caprese Bagel

I LOVE Summer time, every single thing about it, but most all the garden fresh tomatoes and basil right from my backyard.

I know it isn't Summer yet, but the other night the weather was so gorgeous I couldn't resist snagging up a batch of basil and some heirloom tomatoes. With them we made a homemade margarita pizza that was insane, I will share that another day.

So this morning I decided I needed to use up the leftovers. Toasted bagel thin smeared with a light laughing cow cheese and topped with the tomatoes, basil, salt, and fresh cracked pepper. INSANE!!!!!

TOTAL = 162 calories

Things the Mama Does

Let's face it my life is nuts. Many days while alone with the kids I have a hard time getting a meal in my mouth let alone one with a lot of fresh veggies. To save me time and encourage me to eat healthiest I like to pre-prep my veggies for salads, snacks, and sandwiches.

I found this nifty little container to store everything. It is Rachael Ray $20 at Kohl's. The top tray for my sandwich stuff is actually designed for deviled eggs, but I found to to be great for the fixings. I wash and chop whatever I buy at the store that week and pack it up and store it in the fridge. This way I am sure to get all my favorite veggies on my sandwich and saves me a ton of time during lunch time craziness so I can have a hearty sandwich or salad with the kiddos. I cut lemon for my tea or water, cucumber and bell peppers to snack on with hummus or low cal dressing plus of course onions to add to salads and all sorts of things.

I am a wife and Mama to three boys. I had THREE babies in 23 months and went on a mission to reclaim my health and body. By eating better and exercising I have lost 70 pounds. This is my food, and my journey mixed in with our crazy life. A better me for them!
