- I never know what to make for breakfast. About 4 years ago, I went on a smoothie binge and literally drank a smoothie every single day for a year. That kind of died out. I am always looking for other options. http://www.cedarlanefoods.com/ asked me to try out their omelets. They are a 30 plus year natural company with healthy but still super convenient choices. With 20 grams of protein per omelet I knew this would make a good breakfast for when all I had time for was to pop something in the microwave. They sent me four flavors.
- Spinach and mushroom
- Garden vegetable with mozzarella.
- Turkey bacon, vegetable and cheese.
- Green Chile, cheese, and ranchero sauce.
Is it cheaper just to make your own egg white omelet for breakfast? Absolutely. Do you always have the time to chop up your veggies, get your protein together, and cook. Oh and not screw up the flip part of the omelet?! Ha. No you probably don’t. These are great in a cinch. Left me full for 3-4 hours.
Check out their facebook! They have a ton of other products ranging from tamales to enchiladas.

When all else fails I turn to low carb. Here is a quick little haul.
More protein! Bacon, organic roast beef, cheese (I always buy block when I do low carb..The bagged cheese has a carb) eggs, turkey pepperoni, and 3 packs of protein shakes. I love these shakes! So good!
Looking forward to getting into ketosis! :)
Hey friends! You know what time it is. Halloween time. We all know what that means. Trying to resist the urge to gobble up all the leftover Twix, Reese Cups, Snickers, and Hershey Bars. Or trying to resist the urge to dip into your children’s candy stash after a night of trick or treating! Now you don’t have to do either one of those things. You can have chocolate with no guilt!

People. The future of people. Humanity.
I have not gotten a chance to blog in a while. So sorry guys. We are gearing up for our big Cedar Key move and have been busy cleaning and packing and purging. I will have a few blogs up this week including a review of Kombucha tea (so good) and also about my trip to the doctor. I got a full panel of blood work and physical done for the first time in over 10 years. Yes I know. So irresponsible of me to wait so long! More on that this week.
For right now I just wanted to share something I posted on Facebook today. My nutrition has been pretty good this week. I have gotten a ton of water and exercise in. I haven’t binge ate, drank, or ate anything crazy. My husband and I decided to go to Five Guys. I knew I needed to change my usual order which is this.
Bacon cheeseburger, medium fries. I won’t lie, it used to be large fries!!
Not including my choice of toppings (extra cheese, mayo etc.) the meal has–
1873 calories. 103 grams of fat! 171 grams of carbs, 61 grams of protein. That isn’t including a drink. Add in mayo and cheese holy moly.
I started looking at their menu before we went. I went with the following.
Cheeseburger wrapped in lettuce with grilled onions. Little fries. New meal nutritional facts–
712 calories 19 carbs 52 fat 42 protein.
I only had 1/4 the fries which was a victory in itself. Here is what I saved nutritionally wise.
1161 calories, 152 carbs, and 51 grams of fat.
The meal was wonderful. Just by making a few tweaks I got to feel like I was having something special, but at the same time I wasn’t overdoing it. Is it something I would do every week? No. But for once in a while? Absolutely! It’s all about finding the balance. I am always TALKING about balance instead of just finding it. Today I found it, and I am determined to find it as OFTEN as possible.
The small changes really do add up. Live your life.
Live it well. Much love.
