Hi all! I am so glad Friday is just around the corner. Today was the final day of training and I am actually glad it’s over as my brain is maxed out. Today’s food choices were definitely more challenging but I still did OK. My success today was not giving in to having pizza out and making a healthy dinner in.
Breakfast on the go:
2 scrambled eggs, berries and a grande nonfat cappuccino (3 sp).Mid morning snacks – a banana and 2 cuties.Today’s training lunch was Thai and literally all the choices were carbs and more carbs.
My first thought was Yes! Then, I was like oh, hmmm. My goal was to leave some white space on my plate (meaning smaller portions) and make the most of it.
Veggie spring roll (4 sp), 1/2 cup pad Thai (6 sp), I picked some chicken out of the fried rice, 1/2 cup white rice (3 sp) with 1/3 cup yellow veggie curry (6 sp).I did my best to balance it out with a lower point dinner. I honestly did not feel like cooking but this Dinner in 10 minutes made life so much easier to just say no to pizza.
I took this WW recipe for Italian Sausage with Broccoli and White beans and made it X’s 4.
Start by adding a little olive oil to a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 1/2 a sliced onion, 4 cups broccoli (1 bag) and 4 sliced roasted garlic mozzarella chicken sausages. Cover and cook for 7 minutes.Stir in 3 cloves minced garlic.Then add a 15 oz can drained and rinsed white beans with 1 cup chicken broth. Cook 1 minute until the beans are warmed.Remove from heat and add salt, pepper and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes.Scoop 1/4 of the pan into a bowl and top with 1 1/2 tsp parmesan for 5 Smartpoints.
I love the char on the broccoli with hints of garlic, the creamy beans and delicious sausage. He ate the other 3 servings so I’d say he liked it too lol.27 Daily WWFreestyle Smartpoints, 8K steps
