Coollld as iiice

February 1, 2011

You’re cold as ice to me! Singing that as I scraped the obnoxious ice off my car this morning. Really had to chip away at that. So annoying.

I made breakfast at home before coming to work.


-2 slices carb style bread
-1 tbsp reduced fat pb
-1 tbsp marshmallow fluff
-2 tbsp sugar free raspberry jelly


I love pb and fluff. This was delicious! I scaled down the servings of the pure sugar and pb to make this an about 250 calorie breakfast. The bread was high protein and fiber so that helped keep me full.

I snacked on an apple mid morning. And a coffee. Both ofnwuicho forgot to snap pics of apparently… sorry. just shows, been needing coffee thus far this week. I think I’m missing some sleep.

Lunch was Amy’s enchilada with Spanish ice and beans and some baked tostitos.

This amys isn’t my favorite. It needed salt but I am always hesitant to add salt to frozen meals. I would still buy again but I would start with the other varieties first.


Chips were good for sopping the beans.


And suicide hot sauce for my hotness.


Half blueberry pint and some nuts for afternoon snackage.


South beach diet choc pb bar Pre gym.


As an aside if you haven’t noticed I’ve been eating a little more on Tuesdays. I don’t get home until 8 on tues and am always ravenous. So, I am trying to eat a little more during the day so I don’t binge when I get home and am rushing to make dinner. So far it is working out. I’m only adding an extra maybe 100 calories but I think it helps.

Fitness: W3 D2 of 100 pushup challenge. I manhandled this one. Well not really but it was manageable. Tough at the end when I had to do 25+, but i was able to do 33. I kind of just want this challenge to end! But I am sticking to it. Aside from that I did my normal Tuesday workout (see my workouts tab).

So I mentioned making Mac n cheese on Sunday and I was saving the recipe for when I served it. Today I realized I wasn’t serving it because it’s Jae’s turn to cook. So I had it for dinner.


-whole wheat Mac n cheese
-imitation crab (I ate it cold this time)
-broccoli, snap pea, and broccoli slaw
-extra hot cocktail sauce (!) and some light peppercorn ranch for dipping


Now for the Mac n cheeeeeeese (pronounced as in old school) recipe


-whole wheat pasta. I chose shells cause they reminded me of velvet shells n cheese.
-fat free cottage cheese
-nutritional yeast (just discovered this from the blog world. It is super good for you and has a cheesy nutty flavor)
-ff cheddar i used slices but shredded would have been perfect as well.
-whole wheat flour (for thickening)
-salt, pepper, cayenne, nutmeg for spice

1. Cook your pasta as normal
2. Put cottage cheese in a pot on the stove
3. When it becomes smooth stir in nutritional yeast (to taste. You actually can skip this step if nutritional yeast scares you but u wanted to try it and it seemed like it couldn’t hurt)
4. Stir in cheddar.
5. Add spices to taste
6. Stir in ww flour to thicken to your liking
7. Pour over cooked pasta

This Mac n cheese is guilt free and turned out to be a really good healthy version. Dan was skeptical and approved! If your skeptical about the cottage cheese, it actually becomes smooth and is the “cream” in your dish. And if you don’t care for the nutritional yeast omit it. I am not sure it added much flavor.

The leftover version was good too. The Mac stuck together a little more and was delicious and whole wheaty.

Next time I make this I will top with shredded ff cheese and bread crumbs and bake in the oven a bit.
