This is silly, and it doesn't exactly involve eating. I buy body wash from the company Philosophy. They make many yummy smelling food scents, in my shower now I have vanilla ice cream and pink frosted cake. So I have taken those foods out of my diet, but not out of my life.

I wanted something different for a quick dinner for one this week. I always keep cooked boneless chicken breasts in the freezer. So I chopped one,put it on a small wrap (I used a whole wheat tortilla wrap - about 60 calories) with about a quarter cup of part skim mozzarella cheese (less works too -- it's really to your taste) and a couple of tablespoons of tomato sauce. I toasted it in the toaster oven til the cheese melted. It was delicious.
This was easy, tasty, filling and with the melted cheese it tasted very decadent.
