Happy Sunday All! I LOVED reading all your replies on my last post. I think it’s safe to say that EVERYONE LOVES cutting their sandwiches diagonally, but, I am now intrigued to try triangles and squares too.
Today was insanely productive but in such a good way. It all started off with my Weight Watcher’s meeting and losing .4 lbs which I will 100% take because this is the one week each month I usually maintain or have a slight gain.
I LOVE the ingredient list and that they use “oat flour” which I use in every pancake I make.
2 pancakes for 4 points+ is pretty darn good too!
I LOVE how fluffy they get when you grill them and that my pancake hating Husband LOVED them so much he ate 4.
I made up 1 cup of batter and made 6 pancakes out of it. I had TWO pancakes topped with 1 Tbsp PURE Maple Syrup, unsweetened coconut flakes and a banana (5 Points+)
I am actually surprised that the pancakes kept me full for 4 hours without any added protein. I spent the morning doing laundry, straighten up our house as much as you can while it’s under construction and planning meals for the week.
Lunch today involved a little Panda Express and a whole lot of fiber goodness!
Mixed Veggies instead of Chow Mein or Fried Rice.
Kung Pao Chicken because sometimes you just need a little spice.
Broccoli Beef! I put my entire meal into their Build a Meal and it came up to 13 points+! AWESOME!! I think that’s A LOT of Chinese food for the points+ and I probably checked off my 5 a day Veggies LOL
As I mentioned to you all last week, we are remodeling our living room. The Husband doesn’t want me to show you everything yet, but, here a few pictures of what he has accomplished this week.
He tore out all of our old sheet rock and insulation.
Added new insulation, sheet rock, mudd and texture.
Even though we have sort of sealed the room off and covered things up, there is SO MUCH DUST!
Meet “Snow White” LOL
This afternoon I helped him dig out our old hard wood floors….I definitely earned my activity points.
After we made a trip to the dumps where I earned MORE activity points, I planned out our meals and headed to the grocery store.
I know, I know….I stocked up and bought all this great food for the recipes below, but, when it came down to it, I wasn’t sure hungry and I had NO ENERGY to cook. Sometimes you just have to channel your inner snacker cracker and have a dinner like this.
I discovered these Trader Joe’s Social Snacker Crackers and Cheese Squares this Christmas and pretty much became addicted.
3 points+ for 8 cracker’s isn’t too bad when you are eating a buttery, crispy, melt in your mouth sociable!
I am pretty darn excited to tell you that these BIG SQUARES are only 1 points+ a slice!
I think I could “almost” sustain on cheese and crackers! 6 points+ and worth every one.
