What I'm eating

I have decided to write a blog about food I eat.

Losing weight isn't all about eating carrots, salads, celery and drinking TONS of water. It's about a way of life. A lifestyle change as I call it. When people ask if I'm dieting I tell them no I have just changed my life. Portion control, no more junk food, and still enjoying what I eat.

So many other times I have started dieting and quit when I reached my goal weight. This time there is no quitting because I have changed my life. I have found the importance of what is going into my body.

Here are some of my must haves in the house at all time!!

Fruits, tons and tons of fruit!! Apples, Bananas, Grapes, Oranges.

Vegetables!! Lettuce, Tomatoes, Onions, Peppers, Carrots, and Celery!! I always whenever we get home from the store peel my carrots, cut them into sticks, cut up my celery, cut up some onion....just to have it very easy to get to. No excuses!!

Flat Out Wraps!! ABSOLUTELY Wonderful!! 90 calories for 1 wrap. Super super yummy!!

Bagel Thins 110 calories for 1 a quick easy breakfast. Throw it in
the Toaster throw some Fat Free cream cheese on it and go.

Wonder Light Wheat Bread 80 calories for 2 slices.

I will every couple of days add MUST HAVES! I will let you know that we are on a tight budget me being a Stay at Home mom with only 1 income. It is possible to eat healthy and stay on a budget. Like buying big carrots washing, peeling, and cutting it saves us around $1 per shopping trip.


  1. I love those bagels! I will have to try those wraps...I usually get tortillas and they are heavy on carbs and cals. even the "low" carb ones. We eat 100% Whole wheat wonder and its 110 cals for 2 slices...I have never seen that bread before. I will def. look for it next shopping trip! I buy 100 cal. snacks since I can't just cut out all the yummys. I also buy 80 cal pudding cups and make sure I eat fruits and veggies!

  2. I have ton more of staples for this house!! The wraps are in the Deli section, Dillons doesn't carry them but Wal-Mart does.
