This Week's Eats

Repetition, repetition, repetition.

You've heard me say it time and time again. For me, success = repeating foods/meals. Foods that I like. Foods that are easy to cook. Foods that I know are good for me. Like last week. I seriously could not get enough of that egg tostada thing. Before my lap band, I never could have done this. I don't know what has changed exactly, but I'm very content to eat the same thing every day. As long as I like it.

Almost every week, my breakfasts and lunches are the same each day. Dinner can vary a bit, but I've found that I usually cook about twice a week, and I eat what I make for several meals. John and I go out to dinner on the weekends, and I think that the fact that I eat at home during the week makes me look forward to our restaurant dates even more. So here's what I've been loving and eating this week.

I am still really enjoying these Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit Cups. I make a big batch on Sunday and eat them throughout the week. This week I've been having one for breakfast, and one as a pre-workout snack in the afternoon.
Lunch this week has been 2 ounces of deli roast beef on a small Hawaiian roll with a little bit of extra hot horseradish. I found these Hawaiian rolls at Walmart and they are 100 calories each. I know a lot of you try to stay away from bread, but for me, bread fills me up. Also... I. Love. Bread. I also love aluminum foil. :)
For the past two nights I've had the same dinner. John and I recently joined Sam's Club again, and I bought this Treasures from the Sea Parmesan Encrusted Tilapia. It's absolutely delicious. If you are a member of the Sam's Club, you need to put this in your cart. Like most everything at Sam's, this comes in a big ol' bag. We will easily make 5 meals of this.
This week I ate it with a little bit of Green Giant broccoli in cheese sauce.
And then… It's chocolate time. I've always loved the Deep Chocolate Vita Tops, but I hadn't bought them in a long time. They are kind of expensive, but sooooo delicious. Tonight I'm going to enjoy my Vita Top during… Scandal! Guilty pleasure overload.

  2. Your consistency pays off with those pounds that keep coming off. Way to go girl! And I've never even heard of vitatops

    1. Thanks, sweet friend!

      Honestly I had forgotten how much I loved them. I placed a HUGE order of them yesterday, and I'm going to do a post on the different flavors.
