Yummy snack and weight loss

I lost 1.6 pounds at my WI last night. Yay me! I was afraid with my huge loss of last week I'd not show a loss this week. Can't wait to see what next week brings!!

I was hungry last week and wanted a snack. Not a fiber one bar, or any other piffle. I wanted something substantial and came up with this.

It's a whole wheat tortilla for 1 point. A huge one I might add!! I fried it up in 1 teaspoon of olive oil to get one of my healthy oils in. You could easily leave that out. I removed the tortilla from the pan and tossed in 1/4 cup cooked brown rice that I had on hand and 1/4 cup of fat free re-fried beans. When that was heated I spread it on the tortilla and diced up 1 ounce of 2% Velveeta 'cheese' to melt on top. I shredded up 1 cup of leaf lettuce. Here you see what it looks like before being totally covered with lettuce. Cheese melted nicely! It's on a full size dinner plate by the way! That's how big it was.

I spread the lettuce evenly and dolloped 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (in place of fat free sour cream. Much more protein) and 1/8 cup salsa over it. I forgot the onions! You could so load this up with tomatoes and onions and a few black olives would be good. It was a very filling, satisfying snack for 5 points. Lots of protein and fiber. Can't go wrong with that combo!

I folded that puppy in half and enjoyed it!!!!!


  1. Great snack! I love Mexican food and I make a lot of it at home due to my fav place being right down the street adn driving me CRAZY! lol I know I would blow all of my healthy habits right out of the window walking in there, so I do my best to make a fiesta at home! OLE! lol
