Hi everyone! My day started before the sun was shining as I headed out to The Winery….But, I cannot complain as this was the view I got to stare at all day…..
My eats were not as pretty though lol. I’ll be the first to admit I’m not a packaged food person. You get so much more when you make it yourself, you know the ingredients are real and you will stay full longer. That being said, sometimes you need something fast when it’s too early for your brain to start working. I really liked the Jimmy Dean Bacon Egg White Omelets that The Husband picked out that I had today for 6 SmartPoints (SP). It kept me full for almost 5 hours with 14g protein.
I packed a cutie, apple, banana and packed of Trader Joe’s cashews for the day in case I needed some healthy go-to options or snakes. I didn’t eat them all but was prepared or “armed with snacks” as The Husband teases since I carry them everywhere.
Daily Snap Recap:
B: JD bacon egg white omelet (6 sp), tall Nonfat cappuccino w caramel on top (2 SP)….I definitely needed the caffeine for the drive!
L: Working lunch where we had no choice. I picked 1/2 a turkey cheddar sandwich, then, pulled the meat off the other half throwing out the rest. I counted it like a Togo’s half turkey/cheese (8 SP), 1 oz Kettle NY chips (5 SP), a few bites of macaroni salad (3 SP)….Can I just say this lunch wasn’t worth the points at all
S: banana, 1/2 my cashew pack (3 SP)
S2: 4 peanut butter m&m’s, yes, 4! I grabbed them in between meetings without knowing the points. I googled the nutrition facts 10 PC’s = 113 calories so I calculated 10 PC’s and filtered on 4 pieces for 2 SP – worth it lol!
D: Dinner a la The Husband – 2 oz BBQ pork ribs (2 SP), 3oz Alexia Sweet Potato Fries (5 SP), 1 c broccolini
36 SmartPoints (30 daily, 6 Weekly)
Not my best day of eats but I’m proud of keeping myself in check, balancing things out with a lower point dinner and counting every bite including my spontaneous m&m’s.
How do you all track or estimate unknown foods?
I have a friend who does 14 points for any meal period when she doesn’t know. I usually find something comparable or break down the ingredients and add them up. I also Google nutrition facts then use the WW app to break down the servings, pieces, etc, then select how much I ate.
