Note on picture: I finally had some salad last night. If you follow what I eat, you may notice I haven't been getting enough greens in. The only problem with last night is that I got carried away on the croutons. But, man, were they good! Next to the salad is pictured the Stove Top chicken dish that I make that's super easy to prepare, but I haven't figured out the calories on it yet.

More info on tooth: I actually called my dentist yesterday because of tooth pain on a pain level of 5 with 10 being the worst ever. After I got off the phone with her, it went up to a 6 maybe 7. Still refused to take codeine. Then, after I took some Ibuprofen, it went away. It hasn't come back since. So, we're scheduling a root canal as of right now.


  1. The containers of hummus at the grocery store have about 80 calories per serving. A serving is 2 tablespoons, but then you have to factor in the pita or chips.

    I buy mini pita rounds, they are 100 calories a piece.

    To make your own just put the garbanzo beans, juice of 1 lemon, cumin, paprika, roasted red pepper (if you like), tiny bit of olive oil, and garlic in the food processor.

    A whole blog devoted to hummus. There are even some low calorie ideas!

  2. Careful with those croutons. They'll kill all the nutritional value of the salad. A lot of restaurant salads are so loaded with cheese, croutons and fatty dressing that they're much worse for you than a regular entree.

  3. my teeth do the same thing. hurt hurt hurt and then one day, just stops. course i still go in for the scheduled appointment and get it worked on, so i'm sure it would come back if i didn't.

    mmm stove top. your pic is making me hungry at 5am!
