I've been running errands all morning and only had a few minutes to squeeze in lunch in the car before I ran home to stash groceries and leave to pick up the kids from school. I remembered the yummy soup Hubby brought home from Taco Bueno last time he drove thru and got me tacos (I have a SLIGHT taco addiction). It was Chicken Tortilla Soup and it was delicious. In fact, it was so good that he finally just took a last bite and gave me the rest of it because I was hovering over him watching him eat it. So rude, right? I hate it when my kids do that. Oh well. I couldn't help myself. It was delicious!
Okay, so this photo is from Google Images and it's not the Taco Bueno kind, but I scarfed mine down before I bothered to take a picture for you and I couldn't find one online. Oh well!
So, I ran in, ate my soup and pulled up my LiveStrong webpage to enter what I've eaten today. I was almost afraid to type in Taco Bueno Chicken Tortilla Soup. I typed it in and waited while the website looked for the calorie count. I was so afraid 500 calories was going to pop up. Instead, a tiny little "61" popped up. SIXTY. ONE. 61!! Oh my gracious! Taco Bueno has saved me from myself. "That cannot be right, " I thought. "It's too good to be 61 calories." So, I went to the Taco Bueno website to look up the nutrition facts and it was correct. A cup of "Skinny Style" Chicken Tortilla Soup is a mere 61 calories. Skinny Style means with no cheese or tortilla strips. Want it with cheese and tortilla strips? It's still only 117 calories. Want a whole bowl? Skinny style is only 148 calories. With cheese and tortilla strips it's still only 237 calories. Oh my gracious people! This is the best diet food news I've had since I discovered my VitaMuffins. MMMM Good!
So, do you have any weight loss secrets, tips or fabulous foods you've found that aren't loaded with calories? I'd love to hear about it. I need all the help I can get! I turn 40 in 11 days and by golly I need to lose at least 4 more pounds before then.
