Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers

I have been working a lot lately.  Usually I take a typical brown bag lunch to work…a sandwich, some chips…you know, the usual.  I really wanted to mix it up a little bit and take something that I would actually enjoy eating.  I had the opportunity to try the Cafe Steamers line by Healthy Choice and it certainly was more exciting than my boring lunch that I usually bring. If you would like to try it out for yourself, click here to get a great coupon.

The hardest part was trying to pick which Cafe Steamer to buy.  They have so many great choices!  I decided on the Asian Inspired Kung Pao Chicken and the Grilled Chicken Pesto with vegetables.  They were both awesome!  At first I thought it would be annoying to have to cook something in the microwave at work, but it couldn’t have been easier.  You just take it out of the box and stick it in the microwave for around 4 minutes.  No film to peel back, no poking holes in the top, and no changing the power setting stirring  half way through cooking.  Easy. Just the way I like it!

After it is done cooking the sauce is in the bottom of of the bowl and the chicken & other ingredients are on the top in a colander type bowl.  Just lift out the colander, dump the stuff into the bowl underneath, stir with the sauce that was in the bottom of the bowl that was steaming your food.  It’s pretty cool the way it steams your food.  It really makes it taste fresh.  The veggies were so crisp, it was so good!

My Kung Pao Chicken had 21g of whole grain, 17g of Protein, and was only 290 calories total.  I’m sure my old standby brown bag lunch pales in comparison.  I’m hooked!  Not only did it save me time in the morning by not having to pack a lunch, the Cafe Steamers are better for me than what I had been eating for lunch.  It’s really a no brainer…I’m packing Healthy Choice from now on!

Beautiful

I came across this Marc Jacobs Army Watch and fell in love.  Isn’t it beautiful?  The price tag isn’t bad either – $200.  To bad it is sold out at the moment.  Crossing my fingers that they have some more available in time for Christmas!

This one is pretty great too…and it’s in stock.  Sorry the picture is so small…hope you aren’t viewing this on your phone – lol.

Why?

Did you know that you could buy 5lb bags of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Powder?  But seriously, why would you?  They say it has many uses beyond bright orange mac n cheese.  For example, who knew it made an awesome popcorn topper?  Click on the cheese dust to buy your own.

This Will Blow Your Mind!

I had the opportunity to try out Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt and was blown away!  I thought it was going to be an okay snack that might take the edge off of my craving for a big bowl of ice cream.  I mean, at 100 calories and 4 grams of protein per serving how good could it be?  WRONG!  This stuff was amazing, and I now find myself craving Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt instead of  my usual big bowl of ice cream.  Want to try it for yourself?  Download a coupon for $1.00 off here!

The texture is what really makes if for me.  It is so creamy and smooth.  It feels like I am eating something luxurious and expensive.  Riley and I like to set it out on the counter for about 5 minutes before we eat it – this takes the texture to another level!

Each cup of Healthy Choice Frozen Yogurt is made with real nonfat milk, yogurt cultures and dairy protein to create what is in my opinion the perfect snack.  In fact, the Healthy Choice Greek Yogurt Dark Fudge Swirl was the winner of the Shape Magazine 2013 Snack Awards “Best Night Bite” award.  Way to go Dark Fudge Swirl!

There are 5 flavors to choose from:  Dark Fudge Swirl (Riley’s favorite), Strawberry (my personal favorite), Vanilla, Raspberry, and Blueberry.  I haven’t found the Blueberry or Raspberry in my Publix yet.  I keep checking every week.

In each box you get 4 little cups of frozen yogurt that are 100 calories each.  Those little cups really do satisfy all of my cravings.  They are so convenient too…no scooping, over filling your bowl or dirtying dishes.  Just grab a spoon and enjoy!

I know you will really love this stuff…just like we did.  Click here to download a $1.00 off coupon to try it for yourself.

A Penny For Your Thoughts (or for your loafers)?

I was in the Bass store the other day with Maddie and she was immediately drawn to the Penny Loafers.  I proceeded to go on and on about my Bass Penny Loafers that I used to wear back in the 80’s.  She thought it was cool that I actually kept a dime in each loafer instead of a penny.  This way I always had 20 cents handy to make a call at a pay phone.  I think she was more fascinated that I actually used pay phones.

Anyway….have you seen the new Penny Loafers?  They are amazing!!  You can pretty much get them in any color and even some really great patterns.  OH MY GOSH!!

Running from Zombies

Riley and I downloaded a new App to make our runs a little more exciting.  The Zombies, Run app really makes running an adventure!  You open the app, pop in your headphones and let the games begin.

They talk to you while you are running.  Sending you on missions and warning you when the zombies are on your trail!  When the zombies get close to you they tell you to RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!!  You collect virtual items along your route and then use them to build your virtual city.  It really makes my runs go by so fast.
