This morning I woke up super hungry, but, nothing sounded good again. I really need to think about some new breakfast inspirations. Breakfast was simple, but, delicious. I really think you cannot go wrong with bread n buttah!!!
2 slices TJ’s FF Multi-Grain Bread topped with 1 Tbsp whipped butter (4 pts)
P.S. Whipped Butter saves you points 2 versus 3 in the real deal
Plus 1/2 c of banana chips (1 pt).
Surprisingly my breakfast held me over until lunch ~ odd, but, I am not complaining. The husband was working near me today so he asked if I could bring him lunch. Since it was my REST day, I was all for it.
I picked up another AMAZING Subway Sandwich ~ I am kinda addicted to these lately. I totally blame it on the AVOCADO!
9 Grain Honey Oat (4 pts)
Turkey/Ham (1 pt)
AVOCADO (2 pts and totally worth it!)
All the veggies, salt, pepper & vinegar (0 pts)
I really wanted chips today so I picked up some 2 pt Baked Lays so I could stuff them IN my sandwich. I think that might be the 2nd best addition to any sandwich :) Yup, we totally ate on the ground sitting side by side on the steps 😉 (LOVE)
On my way back to work, I remembered that it was 20% off at Over The Top Yogurt Shop since it’s supposed to rain. I LOVE that they have a coupon for rainy days that doesn’t expire :D I totally made my froyo Over The Top today 😀
3 types of FF Froyo ~ Very Strawberry, Vanilla & Pina Colada topped with Sprinkles, Mini Yogurt Chips and a few DARK chocolate chips for good measure (5 pts). See, that is one benefit of giving up my morning and afternoon snack ~ I traded them both in for THIS…
I totally say WORTH IT~ then again, I think I could eat froyo EVERYDAY!
The stats are not bad considering that you can probably BARELY handle 1 tsp of this spicy Chile Crunch. LOVE the CLEAN ingredient list too!
I can definitely see adding this to stir fries, soups, pasta, sauces, marinades…..I LOVE HOT Chili Spice. How would you use it???
I had planned on whipping up a fancy Tomato Basil Spicy Pasta for dinner using this sauce, but, our friends called us up at the last minute. We ended up at Mel’s Diner which is sorta like a Denny’s meats Burger Joint from the 50’s.
I traded in my French Fries for a garden salad. See ~ now doesn’t the addition of that one tomato and the crackers make it seem like more than a salad? LOL…Dressing on the side (2 pts)
No worries though, The Husband gave me one of his fries to share ~ that’s totally LOVE.
I ordered their teriyaki burger which sounded AMAZING in the description ~ sautéed mushrooms, pineapple slices and teriyaki sauce on a wheat bun.
Um, ya, totally didn’t match the visions I had in my head LOL :) I actually didn’t eat the bun because it was soaked in butter. I put my burger on the tomatoes and lettuce and ate it by itself. (4 pt guesstimate)
I was still hungry so I stole some of The Husband’s corn bread and poured honey all over it :D SO GOOD ~ he actually doesn’t like corn bread so I guess I didn’t really steal it. (3 pt guesstimate)
I am definitely thinking I will get back in the kitchen cooking this weekend since we finally have no big plans. I LOVE being out and about but sometimes it’s nice to just be home.
I am doing my long run with my sis tomorrow and having lunch with her ~ I think we will hit the 8 mile marker tomorrow…maybe 9?
QUESTION: So I am definitely in a breakfast rut and need your ideas!!! What is your FAVORITE breakfast to eat?
