Healthy Choice Four Cheese Tortellini Review

Yesterday, for breakfast, I had coffee and half a trail mix bagel with light cream cheese topped with Nice Raisin, Nut, and Seed Trail Mix and drizzled with light pancake syrup. After having this the day before as a snack and because it was such a good combo, I had to have another one today.

I took things a little easier yesterday, having slightly overdone it the day before. I don't think my back is completely healed. I still did enough to keep things caught up, but I am feeling it more today.

I put together lunch using some leftover brown rice and canned diced tomatoes. I combined the two with some black beans, diced pepper & onion, cumin, garlic powder, Mexican oregano, salt, and a Mexican cheese blend.

I chose not to make this a spicy dish, which I normally would have. It was really good and would have been even better with cornbread or wrapped in a tortilla.

Between lunch & dinner, I snacked on a pack of Peanut Butter & Honey Captain's Wafers. They were also pretty good. Not quite as sweet as I thought they would be, which was good. The saltiness of the crackers was perfect with the slightly sweetened peanut butter filling.

For dinner I tried Healthy Choice Four Cheese Tortellini with green beans.

It wasn't great, but not too bad. The tortellini was pretty cheesy, it was just lacking something. I think the sauce was a little bland. I added a pinch of salt to the beans, because there didn't seem to be any seasoning on them. I cooked the dinner in the microwave, according to directions, but I think the tortellini could have used another minute.

I didn't mind that the beans were a little underdone. I like my veggies crisp tender. Although this wasn't the worst thing, I've ever eaten, I'm pretty sure, I've had better, so I'm only going to give this 3 stars.

After dinner I had a Reeses Peanut Butter Egg, which I really didn't need.

One thing lead to another after eating the candy. I could have eaten more candy, but I opted for fruit instead. I had half a Pink Lady Apple.

Unfortunately it didn't stop there. I still wasn't satisfied by either of my previous snacks, so I had a few Herr's Hot Sauce Texas Pete Potato Chips. I wasn't in the mood for these either. I didn't eat them all and I decided not to try anything else. I had a big glass of water and it wasn't long until I went to bed.

I really hate when food doesn't satisfy my craving and I continue to eat, never really feeling satisfied.

I'm still behind and I probably won't get the Sunday dinner pics up until tomorrow night. Hopefully I will get caught up sometime this week. I'm still not feeling terribly motivated. I'll just keep plugging along in the mean time. Rest assured, I will get to it eventually. Have a great night/day!!!
