So it has probably been hard to tell since I haven’t posted anything delicious in a while but no worries- I’m still eating! I thought it was about time I provided a few updates on food!
I L.O.V.E Nutella . So much that I did that obnoxious period between all capital letters thing that most people hate. It was worth it. I don’t know why (or maybe it is because my Mom wouldn’t let us have it) but I had never had Nutella before. I know that is totally weird right? Apparently it is like a right of passage for most children but there I was in my high chair with the old school peanut butter my mom was feeding me. Just kidding I love peanut butter too. But yea so Tim and I made a trip to Walmart to pick up some of those new Lime-a-Rita things that Bud Light now makes (delicious by the way) and I randomly decided in that moment that I should get some Nutella there mostly because I was starving and wanted to eat everything at Walmart. And it was a Super Walmart so that’s really saying something. So with my Nutella and my go-to candy Twizzlers in hand (and the booze of course) I headed to the check out only to be judged by the young kid at the check out.
“What are you gonna do with that Nutella” he asks
“I’m going to eat it” I respond “Don’t you like Nutella?”
“yea I like it” he says “with crackers”
It’s seriously like this kid knew… like he read my mind.. that at that very moment I was in search of a spoon so I could eat that Nutella in the car on the way to Kara and Dana’s house. If he just thought he was making a joke he was wrong. He caught me
red actually dark brown handed.
Lucky for me I did find a spoon on the way out =)
So 2 days later I also enjoyed my new favorite condiment as a side to my apples Tim got for me at Sam’s Club! And it was DELICIOUS!
The perfect little treat
I mean how could you note love that gooey goodness?
So yea I have been eating… too much Nutella. Were you ever under the impression that this stuff was good for you? For some reason Tim and I both were. I think it must be the “part of a balanced meal” call out on the packaging… and which part would that me? the fat? Because gosh that stuff has a high calorie count and some sugar… but this wasn’t part of my healthy choice anyway so I really wasn’t that disappointed.
I paired it with an apple which I think counts for something?
So even though my snacks may not be the most balanced part of my diet (regardless of what the packaging says) breakfast on the weekends is still delicious!
Tim’s favorite is definitely the wraps we make! Stuffed with scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, AND HASHBROWNS (a special new treat we did) there is no better start to any day. It has everything you would need perfectly grilled in a low-carb tortilla on the George Foreman. Tim usually chooses the cheddar cheese and sometimes I go nuts and use mozzarella.
And the next day what do you do after a breakfast like this one?
You make another one silly.
While the wrap is Tim’s favorite this is mine. Scrambled eggs with salt and pepper (between 2 ppl I use 4 eggs and 2 egg whites- we like to eat)
3 slices of bacon since I always eat one before it goes on my plate 2 slices of bacon and fruit on the slide! Strawberries and blueberries for me but just strawberries for Tim. Apparently he doesn’t want blueberries to save his life some day like I do.
The deliciousness of the day doesn’t really stop at breakfast! It continues on to dinner where I get to enjoy some of my favorite foods! My go-to easy meal after a hard work-out is a ground turkey burger (or really lean ground beef) on a wheat thin piled high with some avocado and onions and tomatoes.

I’ll even eat this one twice in one week! I’ll mix up my sides to ensure it’s not totally boring! Sometimes I splurge to the full bun too. Big spender.

Moral of my story? I just love food. Even after 26 years of eating a lot of the same stuff I can still find new and exciting things (cough cough Nutella)
