Wraps and Goo

 

You like that? Me either, but it’s that kind of a morning.

I’m still feeling a bit under the weather so I decided to forego my alarm today. Instead I woke up to Judah telling me that he has poo poo and we needed to go outside to clean it up. That’s never a good thing and he was right. But hey, we did just that and now we’re moving on with our day.

Smile

So it’s Wednesday again. Just in case your dying to see some things I ate yesterday and because I need a reason to crash my friend Jenn’s party, here a little What I Ate Wednesday action.

You saw my morning mocha yesterday with the sugar free syrup of choice.
 
Breakfast was the same as usual.
 
Mama’s Breakfast STUFTwich
 
IMG_1829
I’ve been using sugar free apricot jam to try to change things up a bit. Ha ha.
 
A MOJO White Chocolate bar was consumed about and hour later.
 
IMG_1835
 
After a treadmill run and teaching a BOSU class at the gym, I scarfed down an apple and this big bowl of pumpkin protein cookie dough with chia seeds straight out of the ginormous peanut butter jar from Costco.

Yep. That dough is making a comeback. I had to take a break for a few days, but it’s back. I had the original protein cookie dough the other day too.

Good stuff.
 
STUFT Daddy spoiled me rotten yesterday and took the boys to Tutu’s house for swimming and dinner while I made a dent in the piles in my office. The highlight was finding a $100 check that I hadn’t cashed. Gotta love that.
 
I pretty much kept snacking while I worked  all afternoon with some Trader Joe’s Wasabi seaweed snacks and a Flatout rolled up with a little Smart Balance Light and cinnamon and Splenda.
 
I also remembered that I love this Good Earth Original tea. It pretty much makes the best iced tea ever and doesn’t need any additional sweetener or anything.
 
IMG_0723
I use a combination of a packet of each.
 
Dinner was broccoli slaw BBQ bake with some roasted zucchini added into the mix.
 
IMG_0713
Topped it with some Costco chicken, Scotty B’s sauce and some of that huge jar of BBQ sauce that I’m pretty sure will last us until next Christmas.
 
IMG_0716
 
Dessert was two (yes, two- I’m making room in my freezer for when my next order comes this week) Chocolate Mint Vitatops
 
IMG_0718
with Katie’s ice cream, some 30 calorie dark chocolate frosting and some expired sprinkles.
 
IMG_0721
 
Random thought-
When I was eating this huge dessert last night which was about 300 calories or so, I thought to myself how awesome it was. I love dessert, like LOVE dessert. I can pile them (by them I mean HUGE desserts) in like no other. My sister-in-law once told me that should be me “talent” for a family talent show. You know, eating my big plate of three desserts. With this whole new non dairy thing I’ve had to make quite a few changes, but I love the fact that I can make my own dairy free, lower sugar and fat versions at home for about 1/5th of the calories. I feel so much better.
 
Don’t get me wrong, I still splurge here and there. In fact the other Friday night I had about 3 desserts at a BBQ at my parents’ house, but for the most part I try to stick to my own creations. I love the whole 80/20 rule.
 
Smile
 
Moving on.
 
Let’s talk wraps.
 
I pretty much have a Flatout wrap for lunch everyday. Now that we seem to have Judah’s digestive issues under control  a bit (with the exception of this morning), the boys have them too.
 
Really you can wrap up anything.
 
 
The boys usually like the basic turkey and cheese wrap (pictured here with some sweet potato Pop Chips and hummus)
 
IMG_0645
 
while I like to make mine as big as possible.
 
My favorite is my BBQ roasted tempeh wrap, but I’ve been changing it up lately.
 
Here are some others I’ve been chowing down.
 
Costco rotisserie chicken, a fresh jalapeño, BBQ sauce and romaine.
 
IMG_0637
 
Turkey, hummus, spinach and broccoli slaw.
 
IMG_0647
This Roasted Red Pepper and Artichoke Tapenade from Trader Joe’s makes a really good dairy free wrap spread also. (Don’t mind my dirty thumb.)
 
IMG_0695
I put it with turkey, spinach and some Scotty B’s Garlic hot sauce.
 
IMG_0696
 
The other day I also had to put my other new hot sauce to use that I got at the street fair.
 
IMG_0668
I put this Scotty B’s Sweet Bacon Jalapeño sauce on my turkey wrap with romaine and jalapeños.
 
IMG_0670
I don’t even like bacon, but this sauce was pretty darn tasty.
 
IMG_0675
 
Oh man, I don’t mean to toot my own horn or anything, but I can fit a lot in a wrap.
 
Smile
 
You know what else you can wrap?
 
Goo.
 
IMG_1752
That’s right. Goo.
 
This was inspired by my friend Sara. She’s not only super funny and a genius, but she loves reality TV just as much as I do.
 
 
IMG_0693
 
Peanut Butter Protein Goo
 
2 tablespoons PB2 (12 grams)
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (10 grams)
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
sweetener packet (if needed)
 
 
Mix all ingredients together.
 
IMG_0691IMG_0692
Take some crappy pictures to try to make the goo look appetizing.
 
IMG_0694
Wrap it up, eat it with an apple, put it on a pumpkin microwave muffin or have it on some brown rice cakes.
 
I like to combine mine with some real peanut butter also.
 
IMG_0703 
and add either some cinnamon and Trader Joe’s chocolate coffee sprinkles
 
IMG_0704
or some homemade chia berry jam.
 
IMG_0702
 
This stuff is about 90 calories depending on the protein powder you use. I like using unsweetened ones and then sweeten it myself if needed.
 
Yep. This stuff is GOO-od.
 
Smile
I prefer it in a Flatout over the rice cakes, but I figured we had enough wrap pictures in here.
 
I might have to make STUFT Daddy try this one.
 
Okay. I’m off to get these guys some breakfast and figure out what kind of fun we’re going to have today and when I’m going to fit in my last semi long run before the Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon next week. Yikes!!!!
 
I’ve got a really awesome giveaway coming up tomorrow!!!
 
Woo hoo!

    That goo looks so good! I love mixing things like that, I’m always working on new combos involving protein powder, PB2 and cocoa powder

    i don’t know if i love the goo or the fact that you can say it’s “goo-d” most. :) either way, that stuff looks awesome!

    Kathy says:

    I agree…I just want you to send me the stuff already made…looks great.

    I got my coupon and will be going shopping tomorrow…I may even bring my FLAT Kitty with me…ha!

    Q: Have you ever pulled a groin muscle? (At least that is my self diagnosis of what I think I did) After a week’s worth of some great lunges, running, and stair stepper/elliptical machine that muscle right by my right inner hip flexor …again my great description…would barely move! WOW…It was hard standing and walking but stairs in general felt ok….now I am resting it and icing with Ibuprofen…slowly feeling better…but crazy.

      I feel like I have awhiel ago and remember it not being fun at all. So sorry Kathy. Yes…. rest. Hope you feel better soon. Flat Kitty loves to go shopping by the way.

    Tony made that mix of peanut butter and vanilla protein powder a couple of weeks ago and went nuts over it. I’m out of protein powder and it’s killing me! I need to get some NOW and make that goo! Your eats looks amazing, as always…I want to come over for lunch!

    • 5.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I would LOVE for you to come over for lunch!!!!! :) Tony made his own goo? That’s impressive. Andrew stays far far away from weird creations like that. :)

  6. 6

    “Goo-d” idea! Thank you for adding another addiction. ;)

  7. 7

    I’m definitely making that “goo” to go with my snack this afternoon. I love all the quality-ingredient, low-calorie recipes you make!

    • 7.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Thanks Danica. It’s a little much sometimes, but oh well. Let me know how you like the goo. :) I keep wanting to try it on an apple.

      • I tried it this afternoon and really really liked it! It made a lot more than I expected too I guess…I put half of it on a rice cake and just ate the other half plain :) I’ll have to try it on an apple sometime, or even on top of oatmeal…good work :)

    Hmm….seems like you eat SO much food. :) :) :)

    No wonder I love your blog, I heart desserts too!

    In fact …

    Last Easter, we attended a swanky (way too expensive) brunch buffet. Determined to eat my “fair” share, I snubbed my nose at the “less important” dishes like ham, tri tip and the like, and instead went completely.hog.wild. at the dessert table. Like I ate each dessert they offered 3-4 times (and even earned a comment from the dining room manager regarding my bulging plate). Hubby watched me in horror, but he is a committed and loyal man, so I did not let it bother me. Anyway, by the time I was done, my body was making its best attempt to burst out of my very nice white dress and I was disgustingly nauseous. I tried to worship the porcelain gods twice at the restaurant, but nothing came out. In great horror, I had to unzip my dress to do so and almost could not unzip it back up. (omg!) Finally, I rushed back to our table and told him that we had to go home NOW. He rushed us to the valet like a pregnant woman to the ER and drove as fast as he could legally so that I could finally throw it up in the privacy of my own bathroom.

    Hubby teases me daily about that … little incident (he calls it going all “Easter”), but I think he is more impressed that his tiny 108 lb wifey can take it down better than a linebacker.

    What can I say, I am an ambitious one.

    Mmm, I love dessert, too. And wraps. And goo? That sounds good, too… might have to try it. :)

  11. 11

    Yeahhh goo in a wrap rocks, preferably when watching The Bachelorette ;) even though she’s boring and I wouldn’t want to date her if I was a man. I kind of love Jef. Anyway, I don’t know how you eat those jalapenos like it ain’t no thang.

    • 11.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I’m trying to find a spicy eating contest. If you hear of any in CA……. I haven’t seen this week’s episode yet. Maybe tonight while I’m scarfing down some broccoli slaw and peppers. :) Thanks for the goo inspiration.

  12. 12

    Oh man it can’t be good when he actually tells you you have to clean up outside! Love the idea of that goo. Must try that when I get back home. I’ve mentioned before, but I love love just mixing PB2 with hazelnut stevia and water for a rice cake. It’s so flipping good.

  15. 15

    i’m totally a dessert gal too… we’d make a mean dessert team. ;)

    That goo looks good! I love PB2!

    How do you make your ice cream? it never turns out right for me…

    • 17.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I freeze everything in ice cube trays and then blend it in the Vitamix. Sometimes I have to add more almond milk as it’s blending. But…. sometimes it turns out pretty icy. How do you do yours? Should I do a post on it? :)

      • Yes please! I usually put all the ingredients in one bag and surround it with another bag with ice and shake for 5 minutes. i don’t have a blender so it kind of works but not always.

    Becky Przy says:

    I am loving Flatout wraps! Although I can’t quite stuft as much in there as you can;-)

    Do you use a vitamix for your ice cream?

    Yahoo on finding a check! I love when that happens–although usually I only find a quarter.

    • 20.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I usually only find a quarter too. It was a rare occurance Becky. Yes, I use my Vitamix for the ice cream. :) It takes awhile. I have a ice cream maker that I want to experiment with, but I haven’t tried it yet. :)

    Hey! So after stumbling upon your blog through pinterest (thank you delicious looking chocolate cherry protein smoothie picture) I decided to come back beause I am working on a variation of that smoothie for my blog so I needed to get your link to give you a shout out for inspiration. Boy am I glad I did, because I have been wanting to try this PBcrave stuff so bad!! By the way, I have a two year old son named Judah who happens to be mildly allergic to peanuts, odd huh? Anyways, I want to try the cookie nookie so freakin bad it’s not even funny. I better win. ;)

      STUFT Mama says:

    Julie says:

    Oh my gosh, all your meals look great. I love banana rolled in tortillas. The turkey wrap is definitely something I need to make as is that pumpkin protein cookie dough. Good thing I have pumpkin on hand! AND that breakfast sandwich… when I’m out of tortillas and buy bread, I’m making it.

    Lisa says:

    All your food looks SO goo(d) hehe ;) I need to make all your recipes stat, because I’m obsessed with everything you make. I’ve been baking my brocc slaw with zucchini too and sometime asparagus! So yummy. I’ve been eating so much pumpkin cookie dough I may turn into a pumpkin soon. Next I must try your goo. Dessert is the best thing ever, especially when it is super voluminous! Love you lady!
