Raise your hand if you’re trying to lose wight. *Waves hand* Raise your hand if you’re trying to lose weight and getting tired of making two meals, a healthy meal for you and a normal meal for everyone else. *Waving both hands!* Yup. Its exhausting and sometimes a little annoying. Not that I mind cooking for my hubby when he’s home, but sometimes I just want to eat a nice healthy salad with out the temptation that comes from making him a “normal meal”. It doesn’t help that the man is totally a name brand snob! Only the best will do for my hubby!
He’s a BIG fan of Velveeta shells and cheese, but so am I! Can you see my problem? CARBS!
So I decided to do some shopping at Walmart and explore some other options. Namely heat-and-eat meals for him. Like the new Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles. This frees me up from having to slave over a hot stove and from the temptation of all that cheesy goodness. Now I can eat my yummy healthy salad with out “accidentally” snacking on a whole pox of pasta!
And the fact that all I have to do is heat, stir in some “liquid gold” (aka cheese sauce) and serve is a pretty awesome bonus too! Having some of these heat-and-eat meals on hand has definitely made it easier for me to feed my busy husband something hot and quick, while I make a healthier choice. Now don’t get me wrong, I love to cook for my man, and have no problem “slaving over the hot stove” for his dinners, but when its lunch time and he’s hungry, easier is definitely better!
How do you avoid carb temptation?
