Let's not get into details, let's get back to low cal foods.|
(I have THREE weddings in the next 3 months)
PMS makes me want bread-y foods.
Although I generally regard the Atkins diet as satan, the low carb revolution left some good stuff in it's wake.
Low carb pitas- 130 cals for a whole loaf, 11g of protein and 9 grams of fiber- toss some fresh chopped veggies in a low cal or no cal dressing and stuff into half of one. It's a great under 100 calorie lunch that no one will bat an eye at.
La Tortilla Factory low-carb tortillas, 50 calories each 5g protein, 8g fiber. Wonderfully multi-purpose.
Barilla Plus pasta- granted, it's 200 calories per serving, but it has 10g of protein and 4g of fiber.
Tofu Shirataki noodles- 20 calories per serving. Not much nutritional value, but they work just fine in any pasta sauce. Also, they are PERFECT to duplicate ramen noodles (buy the real ones, keep the broth packet and toss the calorie laden noodle brick)
