Mexican 2 Days in a Row!

Happy MLK Day!

This morning started out like a normal morning with a cup of coffee and a bowl of Kashi cereal. I really like the cinnamon flavor but it gets a little soggy if you don’t eat it quick. I’m not a very quick eater either.
 I enjoyed some mixed fruit with cherries, cantaloupe, and grapes with my breakfast as well.

I was planning on eating lunch at work today but I remembered about midmorning that I left it at home. ;( So today at noon I headed back home for a quick lunch. I have a ton of leftovers from the pulled pork and Mexican night this weekend.
I ate 2 pulled pork tacos on corn tortillas topped off with black beans and sour cream. Still good two days later!
Notice the ice tea. I"m slowly adding my tea back in. Its slightly sweetened with evaporated cane juice crystals.

Served on fine china (paper plates)

I had more cherries for a mid afternoon snack.

Dinner consisted of quesadillas with the leftover Mexican chicken. I chopped up a tenderloin and grilled it on the stove with the corn tortillas, cheese, and shredded lettuce.

Once they were nice and grilled I topped it with some homemade salsa and sour cream with a side of tortilla chips and salsa.
I told you I could eat Mexican every night of the week! ;)
I was craving something sweet after dinner. I have a confession to make; I love break and bake chocolate chip cookies. I really wanted some tonight. I settled for a POMtini (POM juice and sparkling water) It took the craving right away.

P.S. I have to give props to Kyle’s dad, David. He ordered the Hummus platter for us Sunday afternoon and has really been doing great on his healthy eating! He’s lost over 25lbs! Keep up the great work, David!

  1. Great tip for curbing after dinner sweet attacks! Another yummy day!

  2. Mona,
    I will have to try something else in place of the chocolate I absolutely have to have after dinner. We went to a Whole Food Store the other day to buy snacks to send to our son in law who is deployed. I think we may be on to something there. Kind of expensive but really, a great store! So maybe I can find something there to take away the sweet cravings? I love the pictures you put with the description of the meals - sure makes it look tasty.
    You really ARE making it fun and healthy!

  3. just found your blog! we're also trying to eat much healthier, and oatmeal or kashi for breakfast (or dinner or lunch!) has been a great help! it's just so hard sometimes! and let's not talk about all the lean cuisines i just bought on sale...let's only talk about the fresh veggies i bought ;)


  4. Sue,
    I love Whole Foods! It is pricey but you can't go wrong there. I love their salad bar!!

    Thanks for reading! I'm just getting started so I don't have many followers. ;) That's great that you guys have been eating healthier!!
