'I am seriously slacking on this blog. My kitchen situation added with my constantly changing work schedule makes it really hard to me to cook on a regular basis and I am feeling constantly deprived of my kitchen time. I'm hoping to find a better job with a more regular schedule and have goals of starting to meal plan and figure out ways to cook around my crazy schedule.
We have been eating out a lot, which would be embarrassing to admit but you know what? I'm actually eating healthier! Here's just a few things that I'm obsessed with lately...
This oatmeal is sooooo good. The oatmeal itself is okay, but they put in apples, dried cranberries raisens and golden raisens. Oh. My. Yum! I've started getting it in the mornings that I have my 8 AM class and I'm actually able to stay awake through the whole thing! For the 9.2 ounce serving you get 260 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 18 grams of sugar and 5 grams of protein.
This salad. Oh my goodness. This salad is sooooo good. You get THREE cups of fruit and vegetables from this delicious awesomeness and it's not even that bad for you! The nutrition info isn't on the McDonald's site so I'm using the nutrition info from my weight loss site that I've fallen in love with - www.myfitnesspal.com. According to them, one salad has 390 calories, 38 carbs, 12 grams of fat, and 33 grams of protein. And that's WITH the amazing Low Fat Sesame Ginger dressing. *drool*
This burger has been awesome as well. It's from Carl's Jr - Or Hardee's for all you East Coasters out there - and it's awesome. Make it a meal and substitute the fries for apple slices, and drink a Coke Zero and you have yourself some major yumminess. According to www.carlsjr.com the nutrition round up for this beauty is 470 calories, 14 grams of fat, 19 grams of sugar and 32 grams of protein.
Now I am by NO means saying you should rely on these as your 3 daily meals, but if you're forced to eat out a lot like I have been lately maybe try and steer towards these delicious alternatives and you'll see a difference. Kid you not, I just noticed the other day that my love handles are smaller and I have less back fat. HECK. YES. Give these a try and you can thank me later! ;)
