Look what I ate! Yum!

The Atkins Diet- I'm a believer...

About 12 years ago I was taught about the Atkins Diet from a friend of mine. I learned alot about what to eat, portions, and sugar!! Big deal that sugar. Anyway, I am convinced it is why, even though I have gained a little weight in the last few years, I have not ballooned :)


So when I got an email to participate in this Mom Central blog tour I jumped on it. I got a sample of the Atkins Flour packed with fiber and low in sugar-and Jean-Claude made me pancakes! Yummy banana pancakes! I love it when something good for you tastes good too. The Atkins Flour seriously tasted like normal flour to me. And my husband ate it too and he is the pickiest eater in the world! In fact, he says most of the food bar at Whole Foods is too healthy tasting for him so we dont go there anymore.-and I love that place!

Now, I swear it tasted good to me. Although I have a wacko for a Dad that has made eat the craziest health food fads ever invented. Yes, for a while I was drinking that nasty femented mushroom tea.. I got a buzz every time I drank it and I am pretty sure I was not 21 yet! And I did used to make my own Keifer by leaving milk on my counter (yep, out of the fridge) with Keifer grains in it! Hey, live microbiotics in my body, that can't be bad!

So I admit, I eat weird things but seriously, these pancakes were deee-lish! and I totally recommend this product. I also got a sample of the Penne Pasta so will try that and give you a review...

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Atkins and received samples to facilitate my candid review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.”

I tried Atkins and lost weight on it but it is really hard on your kidneys and since we have a history of health problems in my fam we are supposed to steer clear of it. My prob is we just eat too much of the wrong stuff! LOL Anyways, I am thinking of trying those cause banana pancakes sound yummy.
