When hunger calls

When I woke up this morning, I was STARVING.  I thought that was pretty odd, since I didn’t eat dinner til around 8pm last night.  Regardless, the grumbling monster in my belly needed food.  STAT.  I wanted something to hold me over til breakfast #1, so I downed 1/2 of a Thomas english multi-grain english muffin with 1 tsp JIF peanut butter in about 2 seconds flat. 

My crazy hunger pangs reminded me of the Wanda Sykes comedy show I caught over the weekend on TV.  She named her belly “Esther Roll,” and apparently Esther loves bread, beer, and cheeeeeessseeeeecake.  Sounds like my kind of girl 😉

Take a look!

Breakfast #1

Fruit and nut butter wrap!  1 tbsp JIF with 3 medium strawberries atop a Mama Lupe’s Low carb tortilla:

Wrapped it up burrito style and grilled on the George Foreman for about 5 minutes til nice and ooey gooey and the tortilla was crispy:

I wrapped this little guy up and took him with me to work:

Yum yum yummmmmmmm 🙂

Breakfast #2

I was planning on having yogurt with strawberries, but I somehow left the yogurt at home!  Lucky for me I had a blueberry bliss Luna Bar in my desk at work:

I LOVE this flavor


Nothing really sounded good for lunch today… Don’t you just hate when that happens? 

I decided to make some healthified buffalo chicken.  This time I used 3 ounces chicken, 2 tbsp Plain Fat Free Stonyfield Farm yogurt, 3 tbsp Franks red hot, garlic powder, and some black pepper, all atop a Mama Lupe’s Low Carb tortilla:

I also added some lettuce, tomato, and onion and had some carrots on the side:

Even though I wasn’t craving it, the wrap sure was tasty!

Whelp, even though nothing sounded good at lunch by the time dinner rolled around I had a serious craving for pizza and salad.  I love the pizza salad combo!

I ran to the grocery store to pick up some light mini babybels, but they didn’t have any!  Ughhh… sometimes I hate living in a small town!  I looked around the store and ended up with these guys:

I used a Joseph’s low carb tortilla as my base and topped it with 1/4 cup Classico Fire Roasted Tomato and Garlic sauce that I doctored up with Black Pepper, Red Pepper Flakes, Garlic Powder, and Onion Powder.  Then I added 1/2 of a sliced up Jennie O’s Hot Turkey Sausage, 1 chopped up Sargento light string cheese, and some thinly sliced tomato and onion:

I baked this in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, then chopped with some sliced up fresh basil that I plucked from the backyard.


And on the side I had a huge delicious salad with romaine, cherry tomatoes (from the back yard 🙂 ), onion, tomato, banana peppers, and 2 tbsp Ken’s Steakhouse Lite Italian Romano dressing:

Finished dinner about an hour ago… and I’m already getting hungry!  What’s up with that?!  I see a green monster smoothie in my future 🙂
