Hi everyone,
Hope you’re all doing well.  I went to work today and I thought I’d show you what I brought with me.    Yesterday I bought some new thermos containers that are stack-able and I also bought collapsible cutlery…LOL  They were too cute and I got them in my favorite color…purple.

I’m sick with a cold & dry cough, so for lunch I made lentil soup and I had some canned sliced peaches that are packed in water.

Dinner: Is grilled chicken, feta, cucumbers, olives, grape tomatoes, celery & for dressing I have just balsamic vinegar.

Full Day Of Eating 11 *Lunch Edition + New Job

I’ve been a stay at home mom for the last 16 years and now that both my kids are going to be in high school this year I decided it was time for me to get back into the workforce.  
Well I got a part-time job working as a supervisor of a retail store, it’s been an adjustment at home since my kids are so use to having me around, also I’ve been trying to plan out my meals for when I go to work and to cook dinner for my family.  Ideally I’d like to use the slow cooker daily but I just don’t have a lot of slow cooker recipes that are low carb friendly, but I’m working on it 🙂

Below are just some of my meals and snacks that I’ve made for myself to take to work.
P. S. I just love my “on the go” plastic container, it’s got everything I need all in one.

Please share in the comments below if you have any suggestions or advice. Thanks 🙂

Full Day Of Eating 10

Breakfast PB Banana 2015-15-7

Breakfast: I only had one slice because it was so filling plus I had a cup of coffee.  This Dempsters Thin is just 45 calories per slice, they’re very thin, that’s why I had made two slices, thinking it wasn’t going to be enough.  But I was wrong, my eyes were hungry.  I also use all natural, no sugar added Peanut Butter. YUMMY!!! 

Shake & Tea 2015-15-7--15

I had a great workout today Back & Biceps and I made myself a protein shake plus I made a pitcher of unsweetened tea.  It’s 64 oz and that’s my goal for today.  If anyone is interested in this ice tea maker here’s a link.

Chickpeas 2015-15-7Note to self:
30 grams of light feta is 6 grams of protein and 60 calories
1 cup of chickpeas is 11 grams of protein and s 215 calories

I could have 60 grams of feta and have 12 grams of protein and consume 120 calories.  I think that’s a better food choice.

Dinner 2015-15-7For dinner I made steak and cheese subs for the family but my was without the 9′ bun but I had all the toppings and roasted cauliflower on the side.  

Toppings were sauteed onions, mushrooms and peppers, mozzarella cheese, tomato, shredded lettuce & pickles.

Full Day Of Eating 9

Hello Everyone,

This past week I’ve been M.I.A. due to the fact that my daughter had her grade 8 graduation.  I know it’s as thing now, who knew!  When I went from elementary school into high school all we got was a pat on the back and good wishes for the years to come.  Now it’s a full out party, the girls are all dressed up with pretty prom dresses, hair & make up and not to mention the manicures & pedicures and the boys are all very handsome in their suits.

OK so this week I still managed to take pics of my meals so you’ll have a glimpse of what I ate this week.

Have a wonderful Sunday

Scan your Food…Say What???

My Fitness Pal

I’ve been using My Fitness Pal to log my food on a daily basis I logged over 250 days in a row but then when I went away for Easter it reset back to zero…

So now I’m back to square one.  I love how I can scan bar codes to enter my food into My Fitness Pal. 
So I thought I’d show you what I came up with to make my food logging even easier.  I began to cut out bar codes from packages and gluing them in a folder.  I do this mostly because the bar codes get damages upon opening and therefore I can’t scan it when I need it.

At my first attempt I just glued them random on a sheet.  But that was difficult to find what I was looking for.

But then I categorized it and now it’s so much better.

Meat & Protein Powder
Fish & Seafood
Vegetables
Fruit
Condiments
Sweets
Misc
