Hi all! Before I start posting recipes and stuff, I want to mention some of the products that are a MUST have in my pantry. If I were to only have a few items to eat, these would be it (I’m not including photos of some of my standards such as chicken, EGGS (love eggs!), fish/shrimp, veggies & coffee):
Gold Standard Whey Isolate Protein Powder from Optimum Nutrition
Almond milk. I’m some what lactose intolerant so I use these in my shakes instead of milk. The taste is fantastic and it only has 40 calories per serving!
Yum! Who doesn’t like oatmeal? This is a much better choice instead of the pre-packaged ones that are full of sugar. Cook half a cup of oatmeal with a cup of milk (almond milk in my case) plus a pack of stevia or splenda + cinnamon, nuke it for 2 minutes, stir well then add a scoop of vanilla protein powder and you’ll have an excellent breakfast or snack. Add banana, strawberries or blueberries for extra flavor. Yum!!!
I eat a can of tuna at least 2 0r 3 times per week. It’s a great quick lunch! I will give ya ideas on how to eat it later on. This is an excellent source of protein!
Did anybody say White Chocolate Peanut Butter? This PB is tha BOMB! You can find it at Fry’s but I recently found it at Target (food market) for a much better price! … oh, and they also have dark chocolate!!!
Low in sugar
PB&J on this bread is delish! This is honey whole wheat bread from Sprouts. 50 calories per slice!
Okay, I’m so hooked with this salad dressing since it tastes wonderful and is low in fat. Trader Joe’s fat free balsamic vinaigrette. Only 25 calories per 2 tablespoons. Wow!
Tortillas anyone? How can a Mexican girl be without tortillas? I found these yummy ones that are low in fat, low carb, high in fiber and lots of protein! Does such a tortilla exist? Of course they’re not the same as the ones my mom made (with real lard!) but they take my craving away and are perfect for breakfast burritos, fajitas, etc. La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious. You can find them at Fry’s or Sprouts.
