Not bad for a fat girl

Oh Sriracha


Where did this stuff come from? All of a sudden it was just there. Then it was everywhere. blogsriracha

I like spicy, but I can’t handle too spicy. I’m a baby that way. Sriracha works for me. It gives my food a kick but it doesn’t make me want to cry.

That kick is important. Since I’ve gone back on Weight Watchers, I’ve been doing pretty well. Ok, unless you count my lunch today which consisted of nothing but desserts and a diet coke. Damn Teacher Appreciation Week. But I didn’t eat a real lunch so I could indulge in the yumminess. That works, right? It’s math.

Back to the kick. Since I’m getting reacquainted with healthy (in my mind boring) food, amping up the flavor is important. Sweet chili sauce, fat free Italian dressing, garlic powder, honey mustard, and Sriracha all add a lot of flavor for not a lot of calories (or any). Yay!

I love food, and want to enjoy it. Bland food isn’t for me. I want FLAVOR! If I can’t get it from butter and chocolate and cheese, then why not from condiments?

I'm a middle aged woman doing the things that middle aged women do and trying not to beat myself up. I'm living the life I choose with the man I love, the grown up son who impresses me all the time, and the most adorable pup ever rescued from the euthanasia list. We live in the heat of the Southwest, where I regularly sweat through my Lane Bryant bras.

  1. Love this post! Thank you. I’ve had a bottle in my cabinet for awhile. A friend from Brazil brought it over. Often been curious, but never even opened it thinking it would be too spicey. Gonna try it tomorrow with eggs. 🙂

  2. I totally bombed my lunch once with this Sricracha-Panich-Sauce, I thought it’s ketchup…. I was looking for the next fireplug as I had it in my mouth.

  3. I’ve been in a Sriracha-Tabasco love triangle for years. So. Much. Hotness.
