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!

7 1/2 Weeks Post Op - 185lbs

It's been almost 8 weeks since my surgery. I never thought I would see this day! The aqua therapy and physical therapy has paid off (as well as the surgery). My leg and back are pain free. Yesterday at my last physical therapy appointment I hopped, skipped, jumped and ran on the treadmill for 2 minutes! Pain Free!!! I never thought I would hear myself say the words: "I ran". My recovery time for this surgery was a lot tougher than the surgery I had last year. It feels like I can start to move forward. Unfortunately during my recovery time for comfort I've done a lot of eating. When I was actively exercising/running I would get a runners high. I think that was a big help to keeping me on track with my eating. The endorphins gave me a comfort high. However when I feel stress and lack of control and running isn't an option I tend to gravitate to food. Food and the pleasure of eating it is something I can control. Unfortunately there is a down side and that is we

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

The Weight Loss High

'Weight loss high' is a term I use when I describe what it's like to lose weight.  It's a high I had experienced while in the midst losing all that weight.  It was a feeling of nothing getting in my way and almost being invincible.  When I lost the weight for the first year I didn't go to any groups or meetings.  I logged my food in a journal, counted my WW points and exercised.  Every Monday morning was like Christmas morning for me.  I couldn't wait to see what the number was on the scale.  I averaged 2lbs a week weight loss for many weeks. Fast forward to today: I've 'lost the weight' and I'm in maintenance mode or I should be.  I gained 10lbs and now I'm trying to lose them again!  Maintenance is hard because the weight loss 'high' is gone.  The 'high' during weight loss is a nice distraction and it feels great.  I kept thinking I wonder when I'll fit into the next size down in jeans? Without the distraction of th
