One of my goals this year is to lose 45 pounds. I’ve been carrying this extra weight around for some time, and I really want to get it off this year.
Luckily, I love to exercise (yes, really). I go to the gym 4 to 5 days a week, so I’ve got the calorie-burning thing down. My problem with weight loss is the eating…I love to eat!
What I’ve discovered about myself and dieting over the past few years is that if I totally deprive myself of the foods I really love, then I am more likely to binge on them after a couple days of “being good.”
That’s why this year, I’m trying to create some healthy recipes that still contain a bit of the yummy stuff that I love to eat, but are much lower in calories.
This Tuna Salsa Tortilla Salad has all my favorites…crunchy tortilla chips, zesty salsa, and a bit of cheese and sour cream, plus, it is high in protein to keep you feeling full all afternoon (and less likely to snack).
I literally threw this together for lunch the other day and enjoyed every mouthful! Hope you enjoy it too 🙂
