Happy Biggest Loser day all! For all you fans out there, OMG ~ How good does Hannah look?! I still wanna say “Go Purple Team” but I know that was last year LOL. I DO like this years contestants so far though ~ Do any of you have a favorite yet? I am undecided…..
I LOVE that you all were all wanting to be crowned the “Queen of Leftovers” on yesterday’s post. Each comment totally made me smile and I am glad I am not the only one who thinks food tastes even better the next day ~ casseroles, lasagna and anything with a red sauce for sure.
Breakfast this morning was grab-n-go since I was out of the house by 5:30 AM.
Quite possible my FAVORITE Chobani out there ~ Pineapple!
To me, it’s totally worth the extra points+ (4 points++
Plus a little Protein Power (2 points+)
Plus the last of this week’s watermelon ~ I am SO SAD over that! I can’t wait until Farmer’s Market Thursday.
Believe it or not, this combo kept me full for 6 hours.
Lunch today was “portable” so I could take it to my Weight Watchers a work meeting and have lunch with the group. I LOVE that everyone brings their lunch to eat together before and during the meeting. I really like the leader too.
Today started with my go-to I don’t have time to make lunch Egg Salad Sandwich (it takes about 2 minutes to make if you grab from the hard boiled egg supply you made at the beginning of the week).
I bulk up my egg salad by adding 1 egg white for 0 points+
* 2 slices Trader Joe’s Fat Free Multi-Grain Bread (3 points+)
* 1 Hard Boiled Egg plus 1 Egg White (2 points+)
* 1 Tbsp Reduced Calorie Mayo + 2 tsp mustard (1 points+)
* Sea Salt & Black Pepper to taste
I totally NEED to restock my crushed red pepper flakes to add them to this
I had planned on getting the Garden Veggie Soup from the Café, but, changed my mind as soon as someone mentioned these Roasted Salsa Multi-Grain Crisps.
I am usually not a HUGE gan of WW products because the ingredient lists are HUGE and not always recognizable. But, these were worth trying to me. They are pretty tasty, but, I wish they were spicy.
Train snacks ~ Lowfat Sargento String Cheese & a white nectarine (1 points+)
When I walked in the door I was starving! I decided to make up a big bowl of homemade pickled veggies to snack on while I made dinner. (0 points+)
I realized as I started cooking dinner tonight that I must be missing Tracey of Tj’s Test Kitchen because I have been making meals we used to make together.
I even included garbanzos on my salad because she always gives me those
We usually ALWAYS start with a BIG SALAD:
- Organic romaine
- Broccoli Slaw mix
- Cucumbers & snap peas
- 1 1/2 Tbsp dried cranberries (1 points+)
- 1 Tbsp sliced amonds (1 points+)
- 2 Tbsp chick peas (1 points+)
- 2 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Spicy Low-Fat Peanut Vinaigrette (2 points+)
For those wondering, you find the TJ’s Spicy Peanut Dressing in the fridge section. Litehouse also makes a version of it that is only 1 points+ for 2 Tbsp and can be found at most grocery stores.
I used regular potatoes for The Husband because he won’t come near a sweet potato.
There is just something about crispy roasted sweet potato skins that pairs so well with the smoky bacon, salty sharp cheddar, spicy jalapenos and cool creamy avocado.
I pretty much cooked them the same way we did last time only using thicker slices.
- 5 oz sweet potato slices, cooked
- 1 oz reduced fat sharp cheddar
- 2 slices real deal bacon (you could use turkey bacon)
- Green onions, tomatoes, jalapenos
- 1/8 avocado
- 3 olives, sliced
- 1 Tbsp 0% Plain Greek Yogurt & Hot Sauce
My ENTIRE plate is 10 points+ using REAL bacon (8 points+ if you use turkey bacon) and seriously worth every single one!
You could totally have this for BREAKFAST too ~ after all it has bacon
Are you a sweet potato or regular potato fan?
I LOVE yukon gold & red potatoes and never used to like sweet potatoes growing up. Once someone showed me you didn’t have to have them from a can and candied, but, you could have them as “fries”, I fell IN LOVE. I think they appeal to my favorite flavor combo ~ salty & sweet.
Back to the show!!
