A Quick Low Carb Lunch

preparedpantryLarge-TurkeyWrap I’m still doing low carb, and also still learning along the way, like we all do 😉

When I’m in a hurry and in town doing errands, I usually want something quick that I can grab and take home with me. That is, if it’s around meal time.

I LOVE Mexican food…LOVE it! I love Taco Bell’s taco salad. However, it has to be the (beef) kind. I order it with EXTRA SOUR CREAM!

I DON’T eat the shell or those red things. I also stop when I get to the rice and beans. Although, sometimes I find myself there and still eating! 😮 Sometimes it’s hard, I have found a few things that help.

* Drinking about (2) glasses or bottles of water…( I try to do this before and after) eating this yummy taco salad! (y)
* Rewarding myself with yummy and sugar free chocolate
* Eating a boiled egg along with the salad
* Adding a bit more cheese, (have to watch the cheese though).

I’m back with lots of discipline and MOTIVATED! I’m down almost 10 pounds this year. I did cheat a couple of times, and (of course), it slowed my process. *Slap My Hand!!! 🙂

Chocolate Chip Oat No-Bake Cookies – From Prepared Pantry

Full-CChipOatCookies I saw this recipe in my inbox today. Totally loving these and will make them when I get to one of my weight goals.

You have to treat yourself once in awhile, and especially whenever you cross a weight loss milestone! 🙂

From the Prepared Pantry Site:

Everyone likes a chocolate chip cookie. They oats make it a chewy chocolate chip cookie. It’s a wholesome cookie that you won’t mind including in your child’s lunch box.

Ingredients

1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup quick rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions

In a saucepan, cook the brown sugar, evaporated milk, and butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring continually, until the mixture comes to boil. Cook for one minute longer.

Remove from heat, stir in peanut butter, quick oats, and vanilla. Let cool until just warm to the touch then stir in the peanuts and chocolate chips, stirring just until the chips and peanuts are dispersed.

Drop the cookies by the spoonful onto a nonstick baking sheet or waxed paper. Cool completely in the refrigerator.

Baker’s note:

If you stir the chocolate chips in before they have sufficiently cooled, they will melt. That’s not bad but you will have chocolate cookies instead of chocolate chip cookies.
