burritos & brothers

i am surprising myself right now because although i did make some blogging goals for 2014, blogging every day was not one of them :lol: .  well, let’s keep this going then! #nopressure

weeeeell as you saw my diet got a little outta control a few weeks ago.   the baby is supposed to be the size of an avocado at 17 weeks, and it’s definitely more me there than baby already!  or, the saying  ‘you show quicker for every pregnancy after your 1st’ has been applied. nevertheless, i have been feeling GREAT these past few days and directing all this new 2nd tri energy into my workouts.  i’m taking it slower than usual and being cautious, but i’m finally getting to the gym without having an emotional meltdown first or having to bribe myself.

my brother’s vaca time is winding on down way too fast. his fridge is pretty empty since he’s leaving again soon so i stopped by Sprouts Farmer’s Market after my morning workout to pick up the makings for some gigantic breakfast burritos:

  • La Tortilla Factory 80 calorie, low carb, whole wheat tortillas
  • 99% lean ground turkey breast
  • eggs
  • green bell pepper
  • yellow bell pepper
  • red bell pepper
  • yellow onion
  • cilantro
  • Boars Head cheddar cheese (i could have done waaaay better with this selection —-> part skim mozzarella, reduced/low-fat, almond/rice cheese, etc., but i gave into to my craving and got the real thang)
  • pineapple salsa
  • avocado (that i forgot to get)

as much as i want strawberries these days i can’t bring myself to pay that price, nope.  they are outta season, but blackberries are in and have been super cheap and affordable.  buy on sale only and save that money.

if you buy ground turkey instead of beef in an effort to save fat and calories, you MUST read the label to be sure you’re doing just that.

turkey breast is lean, but if you aren’t careful, you may grab a package that contains both breast and dark meat, which isn’t lean.  i usually come across and purchase these two varieties: 99% & 97% lean.  the leaner the meat, the higher the price. that’s just the way it is yall.  i keep my lean protein serving to 3g of fat or less. if you choose the wrong package, you might have come out better nutrition-wise picking the beef! read your labels.

later, my 1st pedi of 2014 happened. MAN i needed this. hadn’t had one since we went to Miami in September and after a couple of 5ks, let’s just say the nail tech made it snow with all my dead skin. :shocked: . and bless his heart, no more scratching up Sonny’s feet in the bed for a while.

speaking of snow, i hope we get some since it will be in the dang 20’s in Houston on Monday, whoa. bundle up!

  1. Great post!! Never thought about that with the ground turkey and beef. I am not a huge fan of the all turkey breast though….lol. I’ll pay more attention though. lastly,.HEB has strawberries for $1.77.

  2. I am so happy you posted about these low carb tortillas! I’ve been eating Flat Outs for a few months and needed something new, grabbed a pack at Sprouts last night thanks to you :)

    Great tips, as always!

      • I can tell you right now, I finished the pack in about 2 weeks! Haha, next grocery store run I am picking up another pack. I think you would also like Flat Outs if you like those tortillas :) Similar everything. 18g c, 90 cal 1g fat? Both are great for our healthy alternatives ;)

  3. I miss when strawberries are out of season because we only buy them if they’re organic. Strawberries are one of the worst when it comes to pesticides.

  4. The darn things weren’t sweet like i like but that’s to be expected since they are out of season. I did make a fruit salad with pineapples and added the strawberries so they could get some of that natural sugar on them.
