Food Finds - Tortillas

I wanted to share this food find.  I was in the grocery store and saw these wraps in the deli.  They are La Tortilla Factory brand.  I used my ww points plus calculator to see what the points value would be (the words low carb were on the label). 

For a small tortilla it is 1 ww points plus (a perfect size to stuff with egg whites for breakfast).  For the larger tortilla it's 2 ww points plus (perfect for a sandwich wrap or a personal size pizza).  I'm looking forward to trying these out. I'll keep you posted on what I think of them. 

For exercise today I did some cross training ( 20 minutes elliptical, 20 minutes bike and 30 mins weight training) and I don't feel sore at all.  Tomorrow I'm schedule to run 3.5 miles and it's weigh day.  I hope it's a minus!

Cheers!

  1. I've had them and they are pretty good. I also like flat out lights and Mission Carb Balance tortillas (my go to product). Another good alternative bread product is Josephs Pitas in the low carb version. I cut them into triangles and bake them in the toaster for home made pita chips. I also do that with the Mission carb balance tortillas to make baked tortilla chips. A nice summer wrap is hummus, red fat feta and tons of chopped veggies. Keep the food suggestions coming I love it!!!

  2. Hi Sue,
    Thank you for the recommendations on the other great products. I too love the flat out lights however they haven't been carrying them at my local grocery store lately for some reason. Hummus and veggie wraps are great! - I need to rotate my menu options a little and I forgot about that one. Thanks for reading and posting.
    Cheers!

Sonya 'Lost It'

Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar. Taking a deep breath. I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home). For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive

Weight Watchers vs. Jillian Michael's

It's been a little over 3 years (January 2010) since I started my weight loss journey. I reached my goal weight in May of 2011 (135 lbs). Since then it's been a yoyo and my trend had been going up over the last several months. My current weight is 150 lbs (I was 155 but lost 5lbs over the last few weeks). My goal is to lose the weight I put back on (20 lbs) plus an additional 5 lbs for a weight loss of 25 lbs in total. It's so hard keeping the weight off!! The strategy I'm now doing this time is different. I've decided to follow Jillian Michael's weight loss program instead of continuing on with Weight Watchers. I lost the 80lbs on Weight Watchers and the program served me well. It forced me to look at portion size, calories (with old points system), fiber, carbs, fat and protein (with the new points plus system).  It changed the way I looked at food. Instead of processed foods I focused on eating a variety of whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and l

Mini Blizzards

Genius This Mini PB cup Blizzard is worth 10 Weight Watchers points plus vs a Small PB cup Blizzard which is worth 16 Weight Watchers points plus. Mini blizzards are great when you want something sweet on occasion but don't want to kill yourself with tons of calories (there are still more calories in a mini blizzard compared to a cup of carrot sticks however).  This PB cup Mini Blizzard was perfect size and hit the spot. Here is the download on 'nutrition' for the Mini PB cup Blizzard ( http://www.calories-nutrition.buddyslim.com/dairy-queen-blizzard-mini/ ): Mini PB Cup Blizzard
