I love nutrition and food... Isn't that part of the reason why I am here??? Lol buttttttttt, I love reading recipes and cooking and shopping and new gadgets and products. So for what it's worth I like to share what makes my life easier in the kitchen.
I add 1c to my protein shake and any recipe that calls for it. Only 40 calories and delicious. I like that this one can be stored in the pantry until it's opened then needs to be refrigerated.
I just ordered it on QVC and I am in LOVE, makes my protein shakes in a snap and came with a mini chopper too. It is fabulous. Only $59. I got mine on EZ pay.
I read about these on another site and decided to give them a try. So Far I like them. The difference is these are powder that gets mixed with water, it absorbs into your system quicker.
Natural Peanut Butter
I love peanut butter but hate the calories. This is not a lower calorie version just a natural one with no added sugar. good to add to recipes, to use with fruit or add to oatmeal or protein shakes.
YUM YUM YUM. This is a great low cal crackers that tastes yummy. 2 crackers are 70 calories. Top it with a laughing cow cheese and you're good to go!
On another note, I realize many of you struggle with the cost of healthy eating. It's not cheap. I look at it this way, when I buy fruits and veggies I make sure to buy what I know I will eat for the week. I don't go overboard, and when I cook I usually eat the same thing for lunch the next day and maybe even dinner the next night. I waste very little, and since I portion out my foods I feel that it lasts longer. I make sure I know what I need before I go shopping and try to avoid buying what I don't need.
My goal for May is to lift harder and do more intense cardio workouts. Not necessarily longer but definitely harder!!! There is a lean, fit sexy woman inside waiting to emerge. She's been there all along hiding...at times she would show up for a while and then when I stopped paying attention she would leave. She insists on being put first, and when I put her first everyone else is happier for it. I love her and want her to be here FOREVER!!
