As many of you know, and as I have said before, I am using Nutrisystem as my primary means of food. It worked two years ago, the food is actually really good and easy to make, and so it was an easy choice to go back to again. They provide you with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a dessert daily. However, you need to add in veggies (lots of them), power fuels (proteins) and smart carbs as well as drinking a ton of water. So I thought I’d share some of my main “go to” foods that are yummy and easy. Remember, mom of two teenagers here, who is also a middle school principal and in doctorate school….I NEED….wait…..I REQUIRE easy when it comes to food or else drive through here I come….
Yoplait light yogurt – I’m typically not a fan of the Greek yogurt the world seems to have gone crazy over, so I do the light….but I’m trying out some of yoplait’s Greek yogurts and it’s not too bad.
Baby carrots and hummus – Love hummus! It’s easy and great with carrots and makes a quick snack while I’m at work.
“Fizzy” water as I call it (carbonated flavored waters) – Sparkling Ice is my favorite, but our local Giant Eagle makes a good brand too. Much better than plain water or when you are MIO’ed out.
Edamame – my new favorite snack, and I am seeing it around more and more. In the pod with some sea salt sprinkled over it, or shelled and roasted in the oven until they turn golden brown. Yum!
These are just a few of my go-to’s. I switch them up when I get bored. I like trying new foods and am always reading what other people eat to stay full, healthy, and happy.
Let me know if you like any of these too and if any are new and you try them out, how do you like them?!
