StayFit Bowls

inMa Vie

(comments are closed)

So I finally used one of my new StayFit bowls this morning.

Other than the bowl that holds the milk leaking into my bag (not sure if I had it on all the way or not) and the very crappy folding spoon (that I threw out when I tried to use it and it kept folding itself, lol) it is a pretty good set if you want to bring in cereal to eat at work.

So now I’m full up on Raisin Bran…good way to start the day :)

    I have this bowl and I hate it. It also leaks for me and it seems almost impossible to get the lid off without the thing flying out of my hands. I was very disappointed in this bowl. I even suggested it to my boss when I first bought it and she had me pick her one up and she doesn’t use it either.

    Sorry, just had to vent since I saw this.

Low Calorie Pop Tarts

inUncategorized

(comments are closed)

Last night while grocery shopping, getting ready to join WW online I was in the cereal section where the cereal bars are. I was going to pick up Nutri Grain or a Trail Mix bar pack but landed on the new Kellogg’s Special K Fruit Crisps, strawberry flavour.

I will usually eat these types of bars to tied me over between meals, generally from lunch to dinner.

Anyways…I didn’t think about breakfast until about 11:15am and instead of grabbing an instant oatmeal and eat breakfast I grabbed one of the bars to tie me over until lunch which is only 45min away. It is basically a revamped low calorie (100 calories for the two itty bitty bars) version of their pop tarts.

I don’t believe it is suppose to be a meal replacement, just a 100 calorie snack. It was pretty tasty and did what it was suppose to do.

    Hi Lynn…cucumbers! Now you made me crave them, lol. I didn’t even go into the produce section last night when I went grocery shopping. Not sure why but I definitely need to get there. I need to get back into eating fresh fruit and veggies. Baby steps!

  • LynnR

    People at work laugh at how many cucumbers I eat. Mostly I eat them raw, but I put celery salt or vinagerette on them or a low fat sour cream to spice it up a bit. When I turned 40, I got to work and had 40 cucumbers on my desk. :)

Smart Ones, Sante Fe Style Rice & Beans

(comments are closed)

I just had dinner and my goodness it was delish! I forgot how much I LOVE (LOVE, LOVE!) this frozen dinner and in fact thought I posted about it before but I did a quick search…and nada.

If you’re new to my site, one thing to note…I don’t cook, hence I talk/write about lots of prepackaged foods. Like oh…Smart Ones! Lean Cuisine! Campbells Soups! Yeah…I need to find me a man that likes to cook because I sure don’t.

Anyway, back to the beans. This meal is great. It is filling (fibre anyone?), cheesy, sour creamy and it’s got corn. Firm corn, not mushy corn. It micros in 5 minutes and is worth 6 points, probably a lot to some Weight Watchers out there but fine for me.

Clover Leaf Tuna Steaks

(comments are closed)

I have decided that now that my cravings are out of the way, well almost – that I’m going to low carb it for a bit to get my food and calorie intake back on track. Why low carb and not just eat what I want within reason which seems to be the push at me lately from my readers? Because I know me. I need to get back on track before I start to allow myself a treat here and there, to eat normal.

Low carb if I am in the mood, works great for me and when I got up this morning my body said okay we’re ready!

Any ways you’re probably wondering why the Clover Leaf image in this post? I found this product on the shelves at Walmart as I was picking up my happy pills: Clover Leaf Yellowfin Tuna Steaks. They are already cooked, cook in 30 seconds and come in various marinades. I had Fresh Thai Herb for lunch and OMG it rocked my socks off. Very tangy and super duper spicey that I wanted more, lol. I bought 2 of each. Tonight I am going to have another, curry (didn’t want to smell up the office) with asparagus.

Bootcamp tonight…got the okay from my instructor to go to her class tonight – yay!

    It sounds like you have convinced yourself that low carb is the way to go for you, but I’ll remind you again that the perfect eating plan is one that is sustainable FOR LIFE. If low carb really was the perfect plan for your lifestyle, you wouldn’t be having to lose weight that had been regained. A healthy lifestyle doesn’t include yo yo dieting.

  • Trish

    Hey Patty, I believe I have said that I am doing this to get back on track…I didn’t say it was for life. I know I cannot keep up low carb but it helps me get focused, not worry about food in order to get workouts under my belt, to help me feel better body wise.

    I know eating what I want within limits is the way to go…just not right now.

Campbell's HR Thai Chicken Vegetable

(comments are closed)

I had to run to Walmart at lunch to pick up a couple of fuses, I blew one this morning when I forgot that I cannot have the clothing plugged in when my clock radio is on and my hair iron and blow dryer are both on. So I went and picked up a few things along with Campbell’s Healthy Request Thai Chicken Vegetable Ready to Enjoy and I have found my favourite soup.

It’s exceedingly flavourful and the 398ml serving is perfect. The only thing I don’t like? The nutritional label. They have given you the value of calories and nutrients based on 250ml…just give us the RIGHT data, don’t make me get my calculator out. If people aren’t paying attention, they will think they are consuming 120 calories but actually, it is 191. It was still a bargain at 191 calories but those kind of things irk me with packaging.

    I love soup but I find myself eating large cans of it when I don’t need to – I keep on seeing these smaller portions at the store and skipping over them – next time I am going to go small and see how it works.

    John’s Weight Loss Blog’s last blog post..Maybe All I Need is Makeup?

    Hey John, they are really good – I definitely enjoy them. And it says they are reduced sodium – I have no clue how much I should be taking in anyways. I just know for lunch…they were a perfect size.
