Rainbow Tostadas

Since I didn’t do my normal planning/grocery shop this weekend, I’ve had to be creative with things I have on hand, which is good, because we have enough food and its a good way to clean out the fridge.

  • 2 corn tortillas
  • 3 ounces chopped grilled chicken (leftover from my egg rolls)
  • 4 tablespoons red/yellow peppers
  • 1 ounce 75% reduced fat cheddar
  • 1 ounce pickled jalapenos
  • chopped cilantro and baby spinach
  • chopped red cabbage
the pickled jalapenos make this!

the pickled jalapenos make this!

I’ve had this soup in the cupboard for a while, though it would go well with my tostadas – it tasted like a$$!

every vegetable tasted exactly the same!

every vegetable tasted exactly the same! I ended up spiking the broth with Tabasco and ate about half of the veggies. Lunch all together comes in at 439 calories, 7 fat, 44 protein, 48 carbs and 12.2 fiber

Note to self: time to make more zero points soup at home!

We ended up doing level 1 again of Shred – today was easier I think because I didn’t skip a workout day yesterday.  I checked my blood sugar before working out – it was 106 – so I needed a snack to fuel me for the workout:

1/4 of a pumpernickel bagel with a shmere of light veggie cream cheese - 104 calories, 3.1 fat, 4.3 protein, 16 carbs and 8 fiber - it worked - after my workout my blood sugar was 83 - nice!

Afternoon break is over – come on back tonight for BBQ Chicken Thighs and Couscous Zucchini Salad!

  1. I love all of the colors! I’ve def. made icky soups tolerable with lots of Tabasco!

  2. Wow-o-wow, definitely more creative than I usually get with what I find about the house. I know what you mean about those soups, though. I did doctor up one the other day with a scoop of marinated Italian veggies and some leftover taco meat, well-spiked with tabasco, of course!

  3. Uhm…..YUM.
    Ugh, I”m jealous. The only thing I’m wondering is WHY ISN’T THAT IN MY MOUTH RIGHT NOW!?!

    haha, it looks spectacular.
    ps- I just finished day 2 of shred :)
    It hurts.

  4. That is so colorful!! Your pumpernickel snack looks so good!

  5. Those soups are the WORSE EVER!

  6. I love that veggie cream cheese!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I do the same on non-weekend grocery, I go through the cabinets and freezer and create wonderful meals. Some of the best things are made this way…my husband would be all over it, he LOVES cilantro.

  8. Something about very colorful foods is filling and comforting. Maybe it’s all the nutrients? No matter, this is another good one you’ve made.

  9. I wish my thrown together meals look that good ;)
