So lately I have been trying different options to try to cut back on calories throughout my day. Last night we used turkey instead of hamburger when making tacos. I wrapped them in whole wheat tortilla shells and it taste just as good.
After work today I got an urge to visit whole foods since I haven't been for awhile. I picked up some items for dinner and walked out with a whole plethora of goodies in my new fabric bags. I have a hard time saying "Yes" to plastic bags while there so I decided I should just buy 2 fabric bags so I won't have to look like schmuck with an armful of stuff.
For dinner I made lasagna. I used organic marinara sauce, and ricotta cheese and then some awesome fake sausage that came dry......as in.....just add water.
It looked and tasted just the same! Here is the conversation with Anthony when he came home and sat down a the table.
Anthony: Hmmm lasagna, looks good.
Me: Of course its good. Just eat.
Anthony: Wait, is this ground turkey again?
Me: No, its sausage, please just eat.
Anthony: WAIT! What kind of sausage? Is it fake sausage?
Me:Ummm, I don't know.
Anthony: What is this?
Me: Do you want to see what it started out as?
Anthony: NO! That will not help anything!
Me: Okay then, just eat.
It went on like this the entire meal. It has the same texture and taste of sausage. I cooked up the entire package and put aside half of it to use for some breakfast burritos later this week. It was low in calories and of course fat. YAY for trying new things! Ready to see how it started?
