Leftovers for hump day

Earlier this morning, I came across a post by with a Side of Sneakers on the topic of getting good pictures without having a fancy camera.  I bought a new camera a couple months ago, and am STILL learning how to use it.  It’s not even a dSLR!  I’m camera inept I guess.  The post had some really cool ideas that I’m looking forward to trying out.  Also there’s a photography session at the Healthy Living Summit this weekend (which I’m pumped to attend)… So look out blog readers–better photos will be appearing on the blog very soon!

Breakfast #1

8AM breakfast time… and I was STARVING.  Today’s B#1 was a repeat of yesterday’s egg white scramble with roasted broccoli:

You know what I love about this breakfast (besides the fact that I’m obsessed with eggs.. and roasted broccoli… and ketchup for that matter)?  It took ZERO effort since I had cooked a double batch Monday night.  Love that.

Stats on B#1:  163 calories, 12g carbs, 5g fat, 19g protein, 2g fiber

Breakfast #2

I had about 2/3 of a cup of Stonyfield Vanilla Fat-free yogurt leftover from yesterday’s yogurt cheese parfait, so I brought that to work for B#2 along with a few sliced up strawberries, 1/3 cup blueberries, and 1/2 a bag of mashed up 100 calories oreos (also leftover from the yogurt cheese experiment):

I took these pics using tips from the article (well as best I could at work anyway):


This tasted like dessert to me — must have been the oreo crumbles!

Stats on B#2:  202 calories, 42g carbs, 1g fat, 7g protein, 3g fiber


Keeping on my use-up-all-the-leftovers roll, I brought some leftovers from last night’s dinner to work today for lunch.  I topped a Mama Lupe’s low carb tortilla with 2 ounces of the grilled chicken, added the grilled peppers, onions, and zucchini and then topped with a little fat-free Breakstone’s sour cream (about 1 tbsp). 

Lunch-time fajita!

I also had some grapes on the side:

And a pickle spear:

Somebody needs to work on her plating skills…. Just sayin.

This is the kind of lunch I LOVE.. delicious, satisfying, AND healthy 🙂

  1. Your blogs are all so inspiring. I can’t wait to try this chicken fajita idea. But more so, I am so anxious to make the chicken salad on the lettuce. However, I wonder how it woudl taste on a bed of spinich. I love spinich.

  2. oh, you are so wonderful! I’m back on track to lose weight again so I am so grateful to your blog and the receipies. I love chicken and chicken ideas. You better believe I am so anxious to get home and try these receipes out, minus the lime juice. Highly allergic to citric acid. Thank you Mary!

  3. Yummm!! Your breakfast number two looks amazing! I probably couldn’t eat it in the morning because of the chocolate but that sounds like a good afternoon recipe or dessert. Thanks!
