Okay, I was really grasping at straws and only had enough to put together my breakfast!  I can’t wait to go grocery shopping!!!  I haven’t been in three weeks!  Looks like I’ll be making a lot of pasta sauce and salsa!  Check out the price of tomatoes!

For breakfast I had egg tostadas – 2 tostadas, 2 eggs, 1 ounce cheese and yes, pickled jalapeno and carrots on top – its okay to have spicy for breakfast!

With the last of the strawberries – breakfast comes in at 444 calories, 30 carbs, 26 protein, 15 fat and 5.7 fiber.   I put the tostadas in the toaster to crisp them up – so crunchy!

All morning at work I was debating whether or not to work out or go to the Farmers Market.  In the end, since I needed to pick up something for lunch, the market won!  Sadly, even though I got there 1/2 hour after it opened, nothing was set up!  When I remarked to the cashier about nothing being out yet, her response was “it usually takes us a couple hours to get everything out.”  Um, okay, so start setting up at 10:00 a.m. instead of noon when you are supposed to be open!

I knew there was a Panera in this mall, but upon opening the door, the line was 20 people deep!  So I walked down to:

The first time they opened one of these up near my office in Chicago, I ate there every day for a week!  I was trying to see what my healthier options were, and settled on the skinny turkey with hot peppers and a cup of their tomato soup.

OMG, this soup was so good!  I told Tony it made up for my shitty market experience!

So of course I check the nutrition after I ate – it kind of surprised me – I expected it to be around 400 calories – but it was 550 calories, 101 carbs (totally doesn’t seem right to me!), 32 protein, 4 fat and 10 fiber.  There is no way lunch was 101 carbs, because my blood sugar would have been through the roof and it wasn’t.

I did buy three things at the market though – jalapenos, an heirloom tomato and baby cucumbers.  The tomato and pepper were the inspiration for my party pizza Friday!  I made Tony a BLT pizza, and I had a Mexican pizza.  Sadly, when I do two pizzas in the oven, somehow Tony’s pizza doesn’t get a crisp crust so his pizza wasn’t as good – sorry Tony!

I heart pizza!

While that cooked I sliced and salt and peppered the tomato slices:

Then topped it with shredded lettuce:

The base of my pizza – the sauce is 1/4 cup refried beans mixed with 1/4 cup of my baja fresh salsa. Then I tossed 2 ounces of chicken breast from our herbed chicken last night with 1 tablespoon of taco bell taco sauce, then put corn and fresh sliced jalapenos – these were so fresh and spicy! 😀

Then I added shredded lettuce and Chipotle Tabasco on mine 😀  I need to remember to only cook one pizza at a time to get a good crust on both!

I ate 2/3 of the pizza: 580 calories, 58 carbs, 26 protein, 24 fat and 6 fiber

Stats for Friday:

  • no exercise (which means I have to do level 1 and 3 of 30 day shred today! – I’ve always hated level 2 for some reason)
  • 1,574 calories, 189 carbs (don’t think that is right), 84 protein, 57 fat and 22 fiber

On tap for today?

Have a great Saturday!
