Day 43: English Muffin Pizza Feast

Pizza is still my absolute favorite food, and we are always looking for ways to incorporate it into our diet! We found some Thomas’s Light English Muffins which only have 100 calories each. Then we topped them with a small amount of our favorite sauces, and some Low Fat Mozzerlla cheese made with 2% milk makes an excellent pizza. We also topped them with some ham slices, but you could use chicken or spinach on them as well!

Is Hot Sauce Healthy?

After looking over the Google Statistics for this site, I notices that a large number of people end up on this webpage by searching: “is Cholula healthy?” or “is Tapatio healthy?”. So, I’m going to take a moment to answer those people. YES! It’s absolutely healthy! Many hot sauces have 0 calories. In fact, all three of my favorite hot sauces have 0 calories – Cholula, Red Rooster, and Tapatio. Furthermore, spicy foods really boost your metabolism.

The biggest dieting tip I could give besides counting your calories is “Pour hot sauce on everything you eat and drink lots of tea.”

Day 29: Healthy Pasta and Wii-Fit Weigh In

Today we enjoyed 2 servings of whole grain pasta with Classico Roasted Garlic Sauce. We wanted to add some ground beef but found that one 4 oz serving of 80/20 ground beef has 270 calories. While this is some of the saddest news we learned (I mean really who doesn’t like pasta with meatballs), we did feel it was important to share. We suggest adding  some vegetables to your sauce, and find this works particularly well with the Classico Light Cream Sauce.

Last night when we were tempted to munch-out we thought it would be a good idea to weigh-in, instead. Despite what our calorie tracker is saying, the Wii Fit says Brian has lost 2.2 lbs. and Lisa has lost 1.8 lbs.!!! While we were still tempted to snack out, we somehow managed to restrain.

FYI– Tune in soon for a new Tea Show! We will be featuring the Libre Tea Large Gass n’ Poly tea glass and thier Organic Ming Mei Green Tea.

Day 12 – DIET CHANGE

Well, we weighed-in this morning and didn’t see any progress this time. We’re thinking that we’re overdoing it a little bit with the low-carb diet. So, we’ve switched to calorie-counting. To start with, we’re going to try to keep our daily caloric intake down to at least 1500. I’ll update the blog tomorrow with what we ate and the calorie math. If you’re counting your calories too, please comment with your daily progress as well!
