Happy Friday Eve all!!! It sounds like the consensus from yesterday’s post is that you all want to see more Simply Filling meals and menu ideas. Now, that is something I can definitely do. I actually did CORE (aka Simply Filling) for over a year when Weight Watchers first introduced the idea several years back and lost 30 lbs with it.
In the same way my brain is wired to look at everything with “floating” points+ values over it, I still have a tendency to ask is it a “Power Food”. It is sort of like riding a bike, once you learn it and get into nour groove, you can never really forget it or look at foods the same.
I am totally that little kid whose brain does NOT stop all day long….you all already know how I think IN BLOG all day long and now this……lol….
Do you all think in points+ values too or is it just my bean counting geekiness that makes me do it?
I will work on some ideas and weekly meals plans starting in January….Let me know if you all want to join me in the challenge!
This morning I was up at 5 AM working out with Kathy Smith: Strong on demand. After 30 minutes of Total Body Training and wondering why she was so happy at 5 AM, I grabbed a banana and got ready for work.
Breakfast looked exactly like yesterday….don’t worry, the ham is now gone~ sad, but true (5 points+)
For some reason today was an “I am STARVING” all day long day. After eyeing the candy and donuts in the office (plus TWO cups of coffee), I decided I NEEDED to eat my afternoon snack early.
I busted out my new fork, spoon, knife thing that The Husband bought me for Christmas.
Maybe I was SO HUNGRY because I knew I had my crunchy Blackberry Pomegranate Chobani Cookie mix sitting in my bag (5 points+).
While making up my lunch today, I remembered another way I use my Chobani Greek Yogurt ~ I LOVE using it for Mayo in Mayo-Less Tuna Salad and Egg Salad.
Whenever you buy a new carton of eggs, turn all your “extras” into hard boiled eggs to have as a snack or to make this super easy sandwich.
- 1 egg + 1 egg white (2 points+)
- 1 Tbsp 0% Greek Yogurt (0 points+)
- 1 tsp LF Mayo + 1 tsp Mustard (0 points+)
- Sea salt & black pepper to taste ~ other fun toppings, dill or crushed red pepper flakes
I topped 2 slices of Trader Joe’s FF Multi-Grain Bread with the ENTIRE mix for 5 points+.
Served up with my FAVORITE “healthier” chip ~ BBQ Pop Chips!
You can now buy the individual little bags at Costco. The BEST PART…..the ENTIRE bag is only 2 points+…..
Look how many you get too ~ DEAL!
Dinner tonight was all about what I have been craving for weeks now.
Mixed greens, carrots, red cabbage, 1 Tbsp Mozzarella and 1 Tbsp pomegranate seeds topped with 1 Tbsp Newman’s Lite Lime Vinaigrette (1 points+)
Remember this ~ BUBBLE UP PIZZA CASSEROLE! (print it!!!)
I am so completely IN LOVE with these little dough balls baked with tons of spicy, cheesy, pizza goodness…..Honestly, why have pizza when you can make this?!
(10 points+) for 1/8th of the pan!
Just one more day………I am totally sleeping in and getting a dirty latte tomorrow to celebrate getting up at 5 AM to workout everyday this week!
