Wrap it Up

April 5, 2011

I don’t know about you, but I have 5 pounds to lose before I show up at the pool in my bikini. There is nothing worse than feeling self-conscious when you’re half naked. Part of my weight gain is due to eating out all of the time – the other part is I haven’t been to the gym in 6 months. I can’t tell you how many nights we eat dinner out. This happens because I am to tired to cook dinner or the healthy stuff inside the house doesn’t sound good. As a result, at the end of the week I am throwing out spoiled produce and stuffing my face with multiple bowls of cereal. I love salads, but lately I love eating salads out, less work for me and lots of delicious dressings. So making wraps for myself and the family is my new way to integrate eating at home and eating some form of a salad.


Too lazy to make yourself one of these everyday? Make a couple at a time, wrap them individually, than place each wrap in a ziplock bag and eat them up to three days later.

The only thing about wraps that you need to watch out for is the wrap itself. I bought the Mission Sandwich wrap, and the wrap alone was 200 calories..Yikes

    Look for these brands next time you are grocery shopping.

    Any other secrets, or tips for making my muffin top go away? Comments and suggestions are welcomed. Las Vegas Pool season is here and I would like to be part of it.

    hopefully, you are not allergic to nuts, but I find that a banana and peanut butter is a really filling snack and healthy.
    I also need to get rid of the winter bulge –> Rachel
