Real Food and Weekend Haul!

22 Jan

junk-food

My scale finally says its time to lay off the fast food and cakes again and eat some real food. I’m ready! I am also starting a Zumba class this evening,  I hope they don’t wound me.

So as far as food goes, I’m gonna do the lose it app again, it’s very helpful in tracking your intake.  Also, I thought this time I would just post what my dinner menus look like in case you were dieting and you can’t think of anything for dinner.

This week:

T- Tomato, Cucumber and Onion sandwich on Ezekiel Bread w/fruit

W-Buffalo chicken lettuce wraps w/fruit

T-Stuffed Pepper w/salad

F– I dunno yet.

I also am trying Kefir, the “Champagne of Yogurts”! (Fancy)

Kefir is a probiotic drink that is supposed to have an infinite number of powerful health benefits. Its tastes pretty good, it’s thick and a little tangy. I was a little nervous about trying it. I don’t really dig yogurt too much, but for some reason I wanted to keep drinking this stuff.  You can also pour it over fruit or cereal. Mmmmm…

 Now On to the Haul….

Mad Food Science: Crunchwraps and Chinese Pizza Pockets

15 Jan

Taco Bell CrunchWrap

My newest obsession. I love them and I am disgusted by them all at the same time. Lets face it folks “Taco Meat Filler” just  isn’t that appealing. How bout we make our own crunchwrap at home, so we know what the hecks in them!

Here’s a recipe from Culinary Couture that shows you how it’s done!

Crunch away…..

Update: Yep, better than the real thing!

Chinese Pizza Pocket

chinese-food-container-carry-out-take-out

I was also inspired recently by this Chinese pizza I saw on the food channel.  I went searching for a recipe  for  a Chinese pizza and found these jokers. They are making this crazy ass pizza, but they inspired me to come up with my own version of a Chinese Pizza pocket. Mine won’t be nearly as funny but it might be cool and tasty. We shall see.

The Plan:

I am gonna need Chinese food from a restaurant. I am gonna try sweet and sour chicken, vegetable low mein and  a couple of egg rolls and some box pizza crust.

What I’m gonna to attempt to do:

Pizza-Pocket

Make my crust according to instructions. Take my Chinese food and put it on one side of the crust, fold the other side of the crust over the food and seal it up to make a pocket. Bake it, drizzle it with sweet and sour sauce. Eat it.

 

Update: thumbs down on the Chinese Pizza pocket. Looks cool, tastes bad.

You may need a Tums after both of these experiments.

I swear and I am going to start eating healthier….maybe next week.

Who Wants a Bread Bar? Raise Your Hand!

8 Jan

 

Bread and pastry

It’s the new year, 2013!  I’ve been piggin’ out since Thanksgiving and not feeling too awful bad about it and of course like most was planning on starting this new year with some healthier food choices and some serious working out.

Welp, it ain’t happenin’, not yet anyways. I go to the store with good intentions and come out with baguettes and chocolate bars.

This is just terrible to admit but I’m asking for a bread bar for my February birthday. This bread bar would consist of every kind of bread you can imagine with several different sauces, soups and condiments for me to dip the bread into.  Bread is just the most delicious thing on the planet and if I was stranded on a deserted island and could have one thing, bread it would be.

 Apparently, my pants aren’t tight enough just yet, cause this is crazy talk!

Do you want a bread bar for your birthday?

xoxo
