Food Favorites

I love seeing what other people eat. I’ve always been curious about that. I’m especially curious about what people who are dieting are eating. It’s interesting to see the food choices people make everyday, something I’m consciously aware of all the time for myself. So, I thought it’d be fun to share a list of some of my favorite foods right now.

I tried choosing a mix of different items, but items that I’m eating regularly.

Here are my favorite foods right now!

Olive Garden Light Dressing

  

As you can tell, it’s almost gone. It’s only 30 calories for 2 tbs of deliciousness. Makes eating a salad easy! I serve this over butter lettuce with a sprinkling of low fat grated Parmesan cheese with some diced tomato and diced red onion, just like Olive Garden.

Kind Bars Of Any Flavor

   

  

 

These are the perfect after lunch snack! Keeps me full until well after I get home from work, which is perfect if I’m going for an evening walk.

PF Chang’s Frozen Meals

  

Even though it’s sideways, it’s still important! These things are awesome. Most of them are under 350 calories for half the bag. I love that there are vegetables in this as well. These help curb my hunger for Chinese food. I’ll take 350 calories over the 1500 I would have eaten for Chinese takeout any day.

Fried Rice

   

 

Speaking of Chinese food, I love serving mine over these rices. Just heat and eat! I’m seriously obsessed with the Trader Joes vegetable fried rice. I’ll be stocking up next time I go!

Jimmy Dean Frozen Omelets

  

I have no words….. Yeah right! I could talk about these omelets for days! They’re 240 calories each, go perfect with toast and milk, and they take 2 minutes to heat up. Oh, and they’re delicious! I’d eat them every morning but they’re high in saturated fat, so my nutritionist has me limit them to a couple times a week.

Low Sodium V8

  

I drink one of these everyday on my first break. Filling and only 70 calories!

Mango

  

Sprouts had a sale (4/$1.00) on their mangoes a few weeks ago. Sooooo good and a great snack! One of the very few fruits I actually love.

Nut Butters

  

The perfect after dinner snack if I’m craving something kinda sweet or a perfect addition to breakfast to get me to my breakfast calorie goal. This flavor has pecans and chocolate chips in it.

That’s the end of my list! Hope you enjoyed some of my favorite things!

Sweating Rainbows

The Tulsa Color Run was this past weekend, and it was my first time participating. If you remember from my goal list, I had on there to complete The Color Run, and I’m glad to say, I did!

It took about an hour to finish, and I was definitely happy with that time. I got my mom to do the 5k with me and I’m glad it was something we got to do together!

If you’re not familiar with The Color Run, it’s basically a fun 5k where you start out wearing a white shirt (and some pants of course!) and along the way, you get covered in colored powders. In the end, you end up looking like a rainbow. 🙂

The race was great because about 5 times along the way, they had the color stations set up. It gave you something to look forward to so that the exercise part didn’t seem so bad.

Here are some before pictures…

Like I said earlier, there were color stations along the way. At one of them, I told my mom that we should take a pictures, so we stopped over by the “orange” sign to take a couple pictures. As I was pulling out my phone from the ziplock baggy, my debit card flew out of the ziplock and bounced down into the rain drain on the side of the road. I’ll forever remember the color run for the fact that I lost my debit card down the drain!

Here I am right after it happened. I’m pretty sure I was annoyed…haha.

I quickly forgot about the debit card and enjoyed the rest of the race with my mom. After we finished, we met up with Megan and took some after pictures.

And then we refueled with some KIND nut bars they were handing out after the race. Yum! I had the dark chocolate nuts and sea salt one. Delicious!

After the race, I of course took a long shower, but I had blue coloring in my ears for 2 days after! It was a really fun race though and I’m already looking forward to The Color Run-2014!

I’m setting a goal right now to be able to run (not walk!) The Color Run next year. We shall see…
