Hi all! I have so many cool things to share with you all today. How many of you WW’s knew that you get AAptiv for free with your WW membership? Pretty cool, right?!
I finally headed out in the cold today to get in a walk and try one of the AAptiv walking workouts. I picked a low intensity “Walking to the Beat”. The music isn’t bad, the guy is super energetic but I liked his comments. The way he kept telling me to dance as I walked made me think that’s only what they do in public in movies lol. I did like the speed intervals and how they let you know the halfway point in case you want to turn around.
Before my lunchtime walk, I kicked off my day with a healthy Eggroll and 1/2 an orange (3 sp).I grabbed a tall nonfat cappuccino with caramel on top on my drive in (2 sp).
After my walk, I warmed up with this 3 Smartpoint Kale, Butternut and Sausage soup I pulled from the freezer.I satisfied my salty snack craving with 2 Tbsp pistachios (2 sp).Late afternoon as my guy coworkers were sharing their protein meal replacement bars, I grabbed my Instant Pot Hard Boiled Egg.
I cannot believe how easy it was to peel my egg – it’s like the shell just slid off.I think I’ll increase the time to 7 minutes to get it perfectly hard boiled all the way.We decided to make a version these Sweet Potato BLTA nachos for dinner tonight.
I sliced my first potato pieces too thin so I decided to use those pieces up to make Microwave Chips.
OMG, you all have to try these – they are crispy like real chips not the baked healthy taste and take 5 minutes to make.
Thinly slice your potato – enough to cover 1 dinner plate, toss in 1 tsp oil and a little sea salt. Spray plate with non-stick spray and add potatoes in a single layer. Microwave for 3-5 minutes or more until brown. Remove and crunch away.
Simply count 1 point for the oil then the potato points (1 oz = 1 point).I actually only got a taste because The Husband devoured them lol. I must make them again.
My BLTA nachos plate came in at 8 WWFreestyle Smartpoints.Here is what’s on my plate:
- 3 oz homemade sweet potato chips
- 1 oz 2% Sharp cheddar
- 2 pieces Trader Joe’s Bacon
- Lettuce, tomatoes, green onion
- 0% Greek Yogurt drizzle
- Hot Sauce
