And I' m back!...Back on track that is! Stemming from the disastrous week previous (and the extra pressure of looking my best for the upcoming Mercedes Benz Fashion Week), I was uber motivated to eat well and exercise this week, despite it being busy season at work and added stress over attending grad school next fall.

This week, I want to share with you another one of my "meal-ious snacks" (definition: a snack that feels like a meal but contains an appropriate snack-level calorie count) that helped me in my weight loss goal this week was a semi-homemade invention I liked to call the Tuna Sandwich Snacker. Using the Alexia Foccacia bread (sent to me by Foodbuzz) and the Tonnino Oregano Tuna (sent to me by Tonnino), I made a super simple to make snack-sized sandwich that tasted like another lunch! And the best part? Only 200 calories per sandwich -- now that's something I can chew on (and swallow)!
