My Addiction: Doritos

Before you read this…make sure there are no Doritos around. The simple act of seeing the name makes me want them. It’s even dangerous for me to write about the little devils in triangular form. I always thought I had horrible self control, and that my mom had the same problem…until I read up on it and found news articles proving that it’s not me…it’s them.


Why are these little orange dusted triangles so unbelievably delicious and addicting?

There is a powerful, savory flavor called umami in these chips. This ingredient creates a taste and flavor that sticks around and also triggers memories.

Read up on this article on to find out what I find is very interesting, and relieving because it isn’t my fault I can’t have just one!

My advice: don’t pick up the bag, don’t go near a bag, bowl or pile of these diet destroyers. They want you to want more.

Fight the urge. 

Sweet tooth?

This isn’t a post about how you should eat an apple instead of a bag of chips…of course you should do that.

Sometimes we have a major sweet tooth…I know I do. Sometimes it’s okay to indulge in a treat you really enjoy. My favorite is cupcakes and brownies (with frosting, of course). But when you don’t want to indulge or ruin your day, there are ways to get that fix.  Here are two I have found in the past 2 weeks that don’t feel “healthy” at all!

love love love Oreos! On a recent trip to Wal-Mart a friend pointed out a box of Special K Cookies and Creme pastry thins. I have had the strawberry ones in the past and if you are a lover of strawberry pop-tarts…those are amazing. So I picked up this box and threw it in the cart with no expectations. I had a sweet tooth a little later in the day as I always do and to my surprise…it tasted exactly like an Oreo… for only 100 calories for 2!

Kellogg's Special K Cookies & Creme Pastry Crisps

Now, if you like to bake and a box won’t do it for you.. there are plenty of healthier recipes online you can look into. (Some are at the top of my page under “college recipes”). My house-mate also tries to eat on the healthier side along with me. The other day she stumbled upon a recipe for skinny peanut butter swirl brownies. She made them on a Tuesday when she was home after class and I got the pleasure of coming home from school and enjoying them! They are fudgy, soft, peanut-buttery, and delicious. If you love chocolate and peanut butter…make these! Sally has many recipes on the link above… which I am also adding to the menu bar!


Last but not least, skinny peanut butter banana muffinsYep. Can you tell I love chocolate? I hope so! We made these on a weekend and they are a great quick breakfast or a protein packed snack or dessert. Make sure you drizzle them with peanut butter…you won’t regret it.


All of these substitutions would please a person at any age, so if you want treats for the little ones or your picky boyfriend/husband…try these before anything filled with way too many calories and way too much fat. You’ll be doing them a favor, and eliminating your temptations. It’s a win-win. 🙂

What do I eat?

I always wonder what people eat on a daily basis, so I wanted to give you a run-down of an average day of mine.


Breakfast: 2 egg whites with part-skim mozzarella cheese scrambled with a piece of wheat toast, light butter, a piece of fruit & water.

Snack: Protein shake or fruit or pretzels. Something to keep me going until lunch.

Lunch: Turkey wrap or pbj if I am home, fruit, and 0% milk.

Snack: Peanut butter and wheat thins, apple, or special K pastry crisps, a nutrigrain bar, again, something to hold me over until dinner.

Dinner: Grilled or baked chicken breast, steam-fresh veggies and either perogies, noodles, or baked potato.

Sometimes I have another piece of fruit after dinner before bed.

Also: I always drink plenty of water! Always!
