February's Favorite Finds

Let's face it, I love to eat. I am definitely one who has favorites that I just can't do with out. I find delicious things and want to eat them at every meal!!

Here are my favorites as of this month...

1. Santa Barbara Mango Salsa (I get this at Costco)

I could drink this. I put it on salads, in wraps, over eggs, over veggie patties, with's basically good on EVERYTHING. It's about 20 calories for two TBS and worth every single bite.
2. La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Whole Wheat Tortillas. 

These are amazing. Just look at the stats...80 calories, 8 grams of protein, 12 GRAMS OF FIBER!!! 12! I fill them with turkey, chicken, tuna, eggs, veggie patties, all sorts of veggies, or any thing else you can think of. I even cut them into strips and broil them to eat as tortilla chips. I know some of you have said you haven't been able to find them. They do have them on Amazon, but the shipping costs twice as much as the tortillas. Kinda worth it...I get mine at Costco. One pack of 20 is like 5 bucks.

3. Swiss Miss diet hot chocolate. 

I have been loving this stuff all winter. At 25 calories a serving you can't go wrong. They come individually packaged, so you don't have to worry about measuring correctly. 

4. Starkist Chunk Light Tuna in Water individually packaged. 

I can't even believe this made the list...I've changed. I LOVE these single serving packages because it takes out the guess work if you are trying to focus on acquiring a certain amount of calories or grams of protein. One packet has 80 calories and 18 grams of protein. Not too shabby. I mix mine with some fat free miracle whip and put it in a La Tortilla Factory wrap with some spinach.
 5. Extra Dessert Delights Gum. 

I know, I've raved about these before...but it's because they are so good. I think my favorite is the mint chocolate chip. It tastes like ice cream in my mouth. SO good.
 6. Skippy Natural Peanut Butter.

Yum. That is all that needs to be said here. This stuff is T-A-S-T-Y. I love it on toast, in a pb and banana wrap, in my oatmeal, in cookies, or just straight from the finger spoon. It has less sugar that most PB and you don't get that icky oil separation that I hate.
7. Ginormous Costco Bag of pre-cut broccoli florets. 

I go through this in a week. Not kidding. It is amazing how easy it is to eat broccoli when it's already prepped for you. I steam these florets with baby carrots using my easy steam method, and then put them in salads, soups, with chicken, on rice...etc. I LOVE BROCCOLI. Thank you Costco.
8. Fat Free Sugar Free Chocolate Jell-o Pudding mix. 

"You're not Jell-o. You're never gonna be Jell-o."
I LOVE this stuff. I use it in the morning to make my chocolate peanut butter oatmeal. It is so tasty. I love the actual pudding that it makes too. It makes for a great snack, but for now it's all about flavoring the oatmeal.

All of those favorites just made my mouth water...
What are your favorite go to foods? On top of these things I'm obsessed with old fashioned rolled oats, whatever fresh produce I can get my hands on, protein shakes, and grilled chicken. Do you know where that Jell-o quote comes from? Anyone? Anyone? Bueler...?

I have that same bag of broccoli... that I go through in a week. LOVE it.

Ok, Love the huge bag of broccoli, and the salsa...I love salsa!
Your amazing at keeping yourself in check on calories...I was eating those tortillas on a diet called Kristi Approved, have you heard of it?, and I ate too many now I cant look at them.
What do you think about Ezekeil bread??
Your blog make me so happy!
I am going to get some of that gum too...Yum!

xoxo Jenn

I LIVE for those bags of precut broccoli from costco! It's the cheapest way to buy fresh veggies this time of year.... I bought two bags and roasted an entire one last night. I got four (and a half) meals out of it. I think I eat too many veggies ahahahah

marathonmaiden said...

i absolutely love individually packaged fish stuff. my latest crave is the salmon ones. yum! so easy and perfect to pack for a dinner at work

Generation X (Slomohusky) said...

I have bought a jug of that Salsa a few times. Very good. Ahhhhh..... peanut butter ...ahhhh.

Potato's, peanut butter, popcorn, cheese, tomato, mango, yogurt (Brown Cow) and I am also an egg person. Not just any eggs though. They have to be cage free organic brown ones.

My Best Friend's Wedding!
I love broccoli and I haven't had it in far too long. Bananas also definitely top the list for me, along with protein shakes and protein bars.
Have a great week!

I have EVERYTHING on your list - Great picks :)

FAT FREE COTTAGE CHEESE! I had NO idea how much protein was in fat free cottage cheese! With the exercising that I do I need more protein in my life, so the fat free cottage cheese rocks my socks.

I'm a fan of natural peanut butter as well. Yum!

The quote comes from My Best Friends Wedding, by the way. Love that part.

Sarah said...

I think we might be favorite things soul mates! I love all those things!

Stephanie said...

The Hungry Runner Girl said...

Well thanks! You've just encouraged me to go and eat! LOL Actually I really love how everything on your list is stomach, thighs, and butt friendly! Sometimes when embarking on the healthy lifestyle journey it can be quite troublesome trying to find food good enough to eat. You know, not that stuff that's completely bland or taste like cardboard. Guess I'll be making a trip to Costco! Salsa anyone?

Sabrina @ Radioactive Runner said...

That gum looks ridiculously good.. I've never even heard of it!
I am so with you on the broccoli.. I get the same bag from Costco and LOVE it!
I have a lot of go to foods but I am all about fresh fruit and making my own shakes/juices and i love homemade granola bars!!

Nichole said...

Love all those things too! I can't believe you put tuna on there! Love it!
