crunchy ginger rotisseri chicken wrap + stay fuller longer

having the same thing i had for breakfast yesterday while there are a few La Tortilla Factory Tortillas left in this house. they go so fast cause we all like them! Chiso eats them as pb & j rollups, Sonny makes tacos, and quesadillas are my fave. the exact kind i get are only at the Sprouts Farmers Market closest to where i live.

 since i always make them for lunch or dinner,  i tried a breakfast quesadilla this time with egg whites, red bell pepper, green onion, low fat turkey sausage, and 2% pepper jack cheese.  i cooked it on the griddle for 4-5 min on each side and threw in some tomatoes, bluebs, and homemade guacamole. excellent!

 my day gets going after some good fuel, and this thing makes it so much easier to get stuff done around the house when baby boy is fussy or i just don’t want to put him down.  i received this Baby Bjorn as a gift while preggo with Chiso and i love it for home use and outings.  Dego is a thumb sucker and puts his whole hand over his face while he does it! so funny.

so with breastfeeding and getting back to my random, sweaty workouts as of this week, i am double HOONGRY. this is ridiculous.  i just want to eat the entire fridge and pantry when i get home.  coincidently i got an email from Spark People titled ‘Tips to Stay Full Longer’ and i could not click the link fast enough.  these are some awesome tips to follow and i’ve already been doing some of them such as:

  • eat protein and fiber rich foods every 3-4 hours with healthy snacks in between (like fresh fruit and mixed nuts)
  • fill up on the non-starchy veggies and fibrous foods (leafy greens, cucumbers, red bell peppers, spinach, zucchini, sugar snap peas) with every meal
  • reach for natural fruit first to lessen/knock out those sugar cravings. remember, white sugar only makes you crave it MORE! it’s a dangerous cycle.
  • drink a full glass or bottle of water before every meal
  • take your time and eat!!! when i’m super hungry i rush and stuff myself (which is why eating every couple of hours is still the best option for me). it takes about 20 minutes for your tummy to tell your brain you are even full, but by that time it’s too late and you’re on your way to a food coma. take your time to chew and swallow every bite.

today was my first day back on the stair master since i was like 6 or 7 months preggo!  my heart rate always shot up and being up so high with my belly made Sonny uncomfy so i just stopped using it. i didn’t miss it. lol. hurts so good though!  i did some intervals for about 30 minutes for my cardio and headed to a core class.  how about i modified everythang. my postpartum core is way stronger now than in my first pregnancy, but i still have a crap ton of work to do. but first….. :D

afterwards, i picked up some of nature’s candy from Sprouts.  i love their 3 for 5 bucks sale! i got 2 strawberries and one pint of bluebs. and those sweet, crunchy nectaries of course.

i also picked up another one of Annie’s all natural dressings– Gingerly.  winner!

i wanted to use it right away, so for dinner, i threw some shredded rotisserie chicken, raw red bell pepper, bagged cabbage mix, cilantro, green onion, and crushed almonds into a bowl, poured in the dressing, and coated the chicken mixture in it.

i grabbed a La Tortilla Factory tortilla, rolled the chicken mixture up really tight and made a Crunchy Ginger Rotisserie Chicken Wrap that had so much flavor!  please try this, guys!

 for dessert i skipped the fruit and had some Arctic Zero with mini chocolate chips, fat-free Redi Whip, and sprinkles lol. have a fun friday night and a great weekend!

Q: what are your thoughts on Artic Zero? yay? nay? 

 i add a tbsp of Hershey’s sugar-free chocolate syrup to mine, stir until creamy, and add a few toppings first. hits the sweet spot.

  1. Can you explain with this Arctic Zero – Ice Cream Looking Substance is??I was pulled off dairy for at least 6 out of 7 days. I miss cheese and on occasion….ice cream.

    • it’s a healthier alternative to full fat ice cream! i like mine to be the consistency of frozen yogurt, so i stir it first. you gotta try it for yourself! it’s lactose-free, but not dairy-free and found at HEB and even Walmart now. it does NOT bloat me like regular ice cream does which is another reason i love it. 150 cals for the entire pint but i’ve never finished it in one sitting… yet lol

💔 grilled tilapia, sautéed green beans & sweet potatoes, & pineapple pan fried in coconut oil 🍍#lunchies this is the closest i can get to the cookies😂!!! (and it's spot ON might i add👌). i'm gonna buy a few boxes to support one of my preggo client's kiddos BUT i can't keep'em in my pantry. i'll just keep eating 1/8th of a cookie every 15 min until the box is gone cause eating teeny tiny portions instead of all at once = less calories😒 #wait #what #confession #badhabit #dontdothat ☕CHEERS to moderation, knowing yourself, single serving sizes, and goals🙌!!! #clink #fitfoodiele #humpdaymotivation🐫 #timetolift💪 maybe the single socks and tupperware lids are there too?? #agirlcandream morning, nonexistent sunshine🌞!!!! it's raining in Houston today and the fog was SCARY thick at 5am. HIIT class went well tho and i am done with my workout for tha day😥. i haven't had much of an appetite since sunday night after catching the quickest come & go fever (+ congestion, headache, runny nose, sore throat) ever but i still gotta keep my cals UP. whenever they drop, my milk supply does too. remember that, mamas!  also i know there are some safe cold meds we can take while nursing but i'm trying to fight this thing the old fashion way. been sipping on a raw honey + lemon juice + green tea concoction w/ a side of orange juice lol throughout the day that has knocked out the sore throat completely. any home remedies that have been proven to work for you? pls share!  i've been switching up my meals to wake my taste buds back up, so i'm having a toasted eggwhite veggie wrap instead of my usual oatbran. ran outta almond cheese so that creaminess is from 2 tbsp of Tofutti dairy-free cream cheese and i think i like this better anyway!!!👅👅👅👅 #cheeseovereverything #coe #brekky #PWO @6packusa #6packusa #meal1 he started saying da-da earlier this evening and hasn't stopped since! crawling is also on his to-do list for this week #icanfeelit #MCM
