My Favorite Things

Raindrops on roses

and whiskers on kittens

that is all I know of the song, but I thought I would show you some of the foods that I always have on hand. They are staples of my diet and I usually eat them all at least once a day. Here are my favorite things.

Bagged produce. I know it would be cheaper to buy my own and chop it, but when you are starving and have just given three baths, bribed your 3rd grader to finish his homework, and convinced Conner to "put down the scissors", you have little energy to slice and dice. That is why my fridge is always fully stocked with produce.

Sweet potatoes. You can buy them in bulk at Costco, nuff said.

My liquid eggs. I love these things. I just microwave 1/2 a cup of them in a bowl with some spinach and they make and excellent sandwich, wrap or burrito.

Flat Out Wraps. I will be honest, at first I didn't like them, but now I am addicted. I like to put a little PB on them for breakfast. Really good, and great nutritional stats.

My favorite tortillas. I can only find them at Vons, but I love them. They are huge, 100% whole wheat, and 100 lovely calories.

My crack. My husband actually commented one time why they don't make these in bigger jars. Try this in chocolate pudding with some fiber cereal sprinkled on top. Tastes like a crunchy pb cup.

Almond milk. For my oatmeal. Only 40cal per cup.

My oats. I mix a little of each together. So good. If you have not tried the Scottish ones, you must. Very chewy and dense.

TJ's High Fiber Cereal. I sprinkle this on yogurt, pudding, even broccoli.

My favorite yogurt. Only 50cal so 0wwpt.

I love my desert and never, ever skip it. These usually make an appearance. I make my yogurt bowls with these two. The chocolate is technically 0wwpt.

My new wonderful find. These are the best ever! I just tried the Dulce De Leche flavor last night. Creamy, filling and a great size. Only 150cal, 2wwpt for the entire container. Put these on a vitamuffin and you will be very happy.

Here are a few other unpictured favorites: Laughing Cow Cheese, Vitamuffins, WW Bread from Trader Joe's, Vegetarian Refried Beans, light string cheese. egg white egg salad from TJ's, Gardenburger Vegan Burgers.

Since I am talking about my favorite things, of course these three are my MOST favorite.

Oh.. and bedtime is a favorite of mine too.


  1. Can you do my grocery shopping for me? You got tons of great stuff! :)

  2. Did you ever get the protein shakes from TJ's? I just bought vanilla today, so I will test it out.

  3. I would love to make wraps but I haven't found any gluten-free ones locally. We don't have a Whole Foods here. Hy-Vee is the best store in Topeka and I'm tempted to ask them to carry some for me. I know other Celiac folks would buy them too.
