I am totally kidding ~ we did make ribs tonight, but, they were nothing like the franken McRibb meat. I couldn’t resist the title after yesterday’s Better Than a Big Mac Post. I am glad to see you all dig burgers as much as I do. Whether they are eaten straight up, on a salad, in a wrap or on top of a bun, there is just something about burgers that make them incredibly delicious.
Today was such a hungry day ~ I never really seemed to get “full” no matter what I ate. I think this is the first day all month doing Simply Filling that I felt hungry like this. I am proud of the choices I made and glad that I stuck with The Plan.
Even though I was rushing to get out the door this morning, I made sure I whipped up an Oatmeal Protein Pancake to take with me on the go.
Only this time, I made sure I didn’t flop it. (2 WPA for 1/2 Tbsp whipped butter & 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup).
Usually my pancake keeps me full for so long I have to remind myself it’s lunch time. Today, I was hungry about 3 hours later so I snacked on a hard boiled egg.
Lunch was a repeat of yesterday’s with one change ~ I used cherry tomatoes from our garden!
Topped with 1 big cup of Creamy Chicken, Carrot Raisin Salad. For those who asked for the recipe, I will post it this week. ( 2 WPA for 1 Tbsp pecans and raisins).
3 hours later I was ready for my lite string cheese and watermelon.
But, I wanted more……I have been eyeing & ignoring the jar of Biscoff that sits on my desk for 2 weeks now. Today, I NEEDED it 1 Tbsp = 2 WPA
Dinner tonight is one of my favorite meals to satisfy my "BBQ Pork Rib” craving. We buy the lean center cut pork loin and cut it into rib shapes making lean boneless pork ribs. Safeway and Costco sell them already cut.
Grill them up for about 8-10 minutes per side, topping with BBQ sauce and flipping 3 times during the last 5 minutes. 1 oz = 1 points+ if you are counting. These ribs are Simply Filling, just count the WPA for the BBQ sauce (1 WPA)
I used artichokes packed in water and Trader Joe’s Sun Dried Tomatoes (air dried, not in oil) to make this recipe Simply Filling.
All together with super sweet farmer’s market corn ~ 100% Simply Filling & Delicious!
You can see yesterday’s total now.
- 2,406 calories burned
- 4,301 steps taken
- 6 WPA used, 28 WPA remaining (33 daily points+)
I have a super exciting announcement to share with you all tomorrow ~ can’t wait to let you all in on it!
Happy Tuesday all!
