Sexy Mommy Recipes

Day Two: Monday

This morning I had a four egg white scramble with a slice of low fat Swiss melted inside along with one cup of strawberries and two slices toasted sprouted whole wheat bread from Trader Joe's. Thoughts: Very filling and tasty. I put the eggs between the toast and ate it like a sandwich but I could not eat this every day. For some reason I get egg overload if I try and eat too many eggs and then I cannot stand to look at them for months. This happened the first time when I was pregnant with Max. This bread was delicious though and low calorie though I'm not really sure why the sprouted bread is better for me.

For a snack I had a nonfat Greek Honey Yogurt - soooooo good! These suckers are quite expensive - why? What makes it Greek and is it somehow better for me?

For dinner I made Salmon and Artichoke Quesidillas.

These are divine. I doubled the recipe and have enough for three other meals.

They are supposed to be made with two whole wheat tortillas, but my tortillas (which I bought on Thursday) were moldy - yuck. Instead, I used 1/2 a whole wheat pita pocket and saved myself some calories. I still toasted the pita in the saute pan and loved the crunch. These are seriously messy to eat!

So, feeling pretty good about myself today except for the two large McDonald's Diet Cokes. It was freaking HOT today! I had a couple glasses of crystal light and some sparking non calorie fruit water as well. Cooking this recipe took time and that is my biggest challenge. I cannot cook a meal for both lunch and dinner so I will need to explore quick options for at least one meal per day. How are you doing?


  1. Well, you are a heck of a lot better than I am. I started off with a huge glass of water and a small bowl of raisin bran. And, then, I was starving, so I ate the leftovers from last night, which although weren't super unhealthy, weren't the healthiest things either. Maybe it will keep me from snacking the rest of the morning.:) I did get my 2.25 miles on the treadmill this morning though, so that's good.

  2. The bag is gorgeous - I hope you get the cash, and the bag is on super special for you ;-)

    I'm trying to eat better and exercise more over here too. Have fun!

  3. Wow, Stacey, you are in it to win it. Those quesidillas look rrreeeeaaallllyyyy good. And way to go on not licking the bowls. I'm not sure I'd have the willpower.

  4. Hey Caroline! How are you doing?! The frosting is actually still in my fridge taunting me. I should just dump it.
