Variety is the Spice of Life!

Tomorrow is weigh-in day, and I've been meaning to post before today.  I know some of you worry when you do not see a post from me for several days; but rest assured, I've been a good little resolute fat girl!

How about a little post on food?!

With the eating plan I am doing, you are supposed to eat every 2-3 hours to keep your metabolism running.  I have to say it is working well as my stomach starts growling every 2-3 hours, and I like to give it plenty of options.  When I get bored with what I'm eating, I tend to do stupid stuff.  That is why I like to find and try new things.  Here are a couple of new and yummy snacks I've found recently!

I stumbled across Vita Pizza at Giant Eagle Marketplace in the vegetarian frozen section.  I was craving pizza, but I didn't want to spend the calories.  At just 190 calories, I thought I would give it a try; and it was surprisingly tasty!  The pizza is all natural, low in fat, high in fiber, AND has 15 vitamins and minerals!  The box should taste better - right?!  Trust me, the pizza itself is tasty!  Now, I picked up a meatless pepperoni one this weekend.  (Philip says that is an oxymoron.)  I'll admit - I'm a bit leery; but as soon as I try it, I'll be sure to give a report from the taste bud front lines!

Here's another gem that I found at Giant Eagle Marketplace in the vegetarian frozen food section - Garden Lites.  The first one I tried was the spinach souffle, but I picked up a zucchini one this weekend.  The spinach remains my fav.  The zucchini tasted pretty salty, but it was still good.  Check out the info though!  2 servings of veggies!  9 grams of protein!  Only 140 calories!  Best of all, it does an excellent job of keeping me feeling full!

Got a favorite healthy snack?  Please share!

Wow Amy, you really do a great job on finding new things and keeping your diet exciting.

I have to tell you, Lee and I had the "fake" pepperoni. Let's just say it was the first and the last time we will ever eat it! LOL We can't wait to see if you like it!
