Extreme Makeover-Me Edition!!!

Welcome once again to EM:ME. Join us over at Amber's if you're interested in getting healthy and fit, and need a little support from some truly AMAZING bloggers!!!
Keep Amber in your thoughts and prayers today...she is having surgery to remove her wisdom teeth.
Today's question....

Name your guilty pleasure. Think of a healthier choice you could use as a substitute.
Pizza....I LOVE this stuff! Lean cuisine has some decent pizza choices that are low calorie, and satisfy that pizza need. Especially if you sprinkle some crushed red pepper on it.
Chips...mostly Doritos. It's best to just stay away completely for me!:-)

Salsa and chips....yummy!!! The salsa isn't bad for you, it's the darn salty goodness of the chips. There are many things you can use instead of chips though and still get a salsa fix!!!

My week has been o.k. I am down another three pounds, but that is from being sick. I need to drink more liquids, but they don't settle well in my stomach. I try to eat and drink at least 20 minutes apart. Seems to help a little. Good old morning sickness!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

I hope and pray your morning sickness subsides soon...that can be so miserable! I LOVE chips and salsa, too...not to mention chocolate!

Liz @ Sugarplum Creations said...

I love, love, love, the chips and salsa! My brother-in-law makes the best salsa . . . now I'm hungry again!

Prayers for that darn morning sickness to pack its bags and leave. It can just make pregnancy miserable.

Jenny-Jenny said...

So sorry about the morning sickness. Doritos are the bread of life.

onegirliegirl said...

Love your list of foods...mmmmmm!!!

Hating the morning sickness!!! Pray that it will go away soon! I know it's just a miserable feeling.

I love Chips and Salsa.

Oreos are banned in our house because I can NOT stay away from them. So, that means no one else gets them either. HA!

kimert said...

I hope the pregnancy is going well and your MS gets better fast!!

I love pizza (although due to my diet it's banned). Chips and salsa are a fave, too (crap, they're banned to due to the diet AND darned braces!!). Right now my one and only guilty pleasure is Sonic Diet Dr. Pepper (although the ortho says I should limit due to the sugars because of my braces!!!).

have a great day!!!

I love chips and salsa...my fav! I hope you start to feel better and CONGRATS on the baby news!!!

Kelli said...

I love your list! You know I LOVE pizza and Doritos and chips and salsa are up there too. Yum. Good thing it's lunch time.

Xazmin said...

Yeah. This is a bad question. It's gonna make me totally hungry!

Please feel better...I'm getting LONELY! We need to hang out again!

jenjen said...

Have a wonderful day!

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Sorry about STILL having the morning sickness..really wear you out. I love chips any way they come...salsa, avocado dip..you name it. I just have to stay away from that aisle!

3 Peas in a Pod said...

Oh Tanielle, poor you. I remember those days clearly. I don't know how you're doing it and keeping up with taking care of the kids. You're amazing.

Hope you feel better SOON!!!!

Much love from NJ,

I hope you start to get better soon! We dont want you to be sick the whole time! I like the Lean Cuisine pizzas too, definitely satisfy the pizza need. Mmmmmm and chips and salsa...yummy!

Amy said...

I like that food choices you have. I was the same way when I was PG.

jennykate77 said...

MMMMmmmm! Those are some of my favs too. I also like the Lean Cuisine and Smart Ones pizzas. They are actually pretty tasty! I eat one for lunch about once a week. It helps me feel like I'm not missing out.

Heather said...

I hope you start to feel better soon!

Have you tried Dorito's 100 calorie packs? If you can limit yourself to just one pack, they sure do satisfy a chip craving!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Lean Cuisine pizza? Really? I am going to have to try it!!! :)

Debbie said...

I love all three of those things too!
Dropped by from SITS.

Jodi said...

Sorry about Morning Sickness, but I also love chips and salsa! Now I want some!

Jen said...

Waahh for the morning sickness! I will keep praying for you.

I'm a chips & salsa / nachos girl myself. Have you tried either the baked varieties of chips or the multigrain? Snyders of Hanover is a yummy one. I think you've started an epidemic of chips & salsa craving. :)

God bless you!

Connie Weiss said...

Mexican food in general is tough for me. I just can't eat it healthy style so I only have it once a month or so as a treat.

I hope you feel better soon!

Heidi @ Blue Eyed Blessings said...

So sad to hear that you're STILL not feeling well. I really hope that it will turn around soon!

I'm also a chip-lover! It's such a weakness for me!! And pizza? Holy smokes I'm in trouble! I have found the English muffin pizzas a quick fix as well as making a pizza using Flat Out bread.

Small House said...

What else do you use instead of chips when fighting the salsa crave. I've gotta know - I'VE GOTTA KNOW!!!!! (that's me yelling frantically)
Dang...hope you get feeling better. It's so rough.

If you are pregnant I had no idea. Congrats is in order. I love salsa and chips and couldn't imagine living without them. I can imagine living without Diritos but they are so so yummy. And pizza is one of my favorites too that is so hard to give up.

Keep up the good work!

Cheryl Wray said...

Great topic for a post!

My favorite thing about chips and salsa is all the salt on the chips!! That's what makes it SO good! :-)

Amber said...

Yay for another 3 pounds, boo for morning sickness! I lost a bunch in the beginning with my last pregnancy.

I also LOVE pizza. I'll have to try the Lean Cuisine ones soon. Lays has baked tortilla chips, and they are really good. You should try them! They also have Doritos, regular, sour cream & onion, Cheddar Sour Cream. They are all fantastic!

Cadance said...

You know what is good...order your pizza with thin crust, no cheese, extra sauce and topping that are veggies...the extra sauce keeps it from being dry...and it is still very YummY! I promise....it will give you your fix with LOTS less fat!

Mammatalk said...

I am a fan of all of the above. Yum.

Fresh Mommy said...

We've replaced a few of our guilty pleasures this week... including soda. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Just Jules said...

tomato soup and mac and cheese the only things that seemed to help with morning sickness - both of which I would skip on any other given day!

Joy said...

Guilty pleasure food-wise would be DQ Blizzard in Extreme Chocolate.

Feel better soon!!

"FINE"al thoughts... said...

Oh! I just read Joy's comment and am thinking that sounds divine! I've been off of sugar and flour (completely!) for 9 days now so I guess that's gonna have to wait for me. Tanielle! You must be really sick! I haven't seen a post update in a week. I hope you are okay.

Becca @ The Texas Darlings said...

Thank you for thinking of me!!!
