Happy Tuesday all! This morning I kept my promise to get up early and hop on the treadmill for my 30 minute Jog/Walk. All my tiredness completely went away by the time I stepped off the treadmill ~ sometimes I think it “might” work better than coffee.
Breakfast originally started out as breakfast burritos, but, as I cooked it, I decided it looked too good to be stuffed inside a tortilla.
I made a 5 minute Egg White Scramble with Veggies and “bacon”
Start off by sautéing the following in nonstick cooking spray over medium heat for 3-4 minutes
- 1/4 sweet onion
- 1/4 cup sweet peppers
- 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 3 pieces lean Canadian Bacon
Reduce heat to medium low and add 1/2 cup egg whites. Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes and 1 Tbsp fresh basil.
100% Simply Filling and only 3 points+ if you are counting.
Late morning I was craving my watermelon (I think for hydration!). I paired it with a light string cheese for snack (SF) – 1 points+
Ever since we had our BBQ Cheddar Turkey Burgers while camping, I have been craving them. It’s a good thing I still had some left in the freezer to have for lunch.
Yup, I am totally that girl who isn’t afraid to turn her grill on at 6 am just to make up a burger for lunch
I did steal toppings from our café sandwich bar because I wanted “more” with my burger.
Served up with ketchup and mustard on a thin bun (SF) – 8 points+
I had some veggie tray veggies on the side as my “chips” with 2 Tbsp Light Ranch SF + 2 WPA for the ranch. (2 points+)
I actually wasn’t really hungry for an afternoon snack, but, did eat my banana on the drive home since I knew I would not be eating dinner until later.
Every single time I make Sweet Potato BLTA Nachos, I always wonder why I do not make them more often. They are so easy to make and seem totally indulgent, but, they are healthy!
This recipe is 100% Simply Filling if you use Canadian Bacon or you can be like me and use 2 WPA for 2 pieces of Trader Joe’s Peppered Turkey Bacon .
I cooked up my sweet potato “chips” with nonstick spray, sea salt and pepper in the oven at 425 for 20 minutes. Then, topped them with 1 oz 2% Sharp Cheddar and my 2 slices of BACON!
Pop the plate in the oven for 1 minute to get the cheese all melty….
Topped with sweet cherry tomatoes and green onions then, spiced up with a few jalapenos, hot sauce and 0% Greek Yogurt. (SF+2 WPA) – 7 points+
Ridiculously good! Sweet, salty, smoky, bacon-y, crunchy, spicy – melt in your mouth good!

How do you top your taters?
I absolutely have LOVE sweet potatoes and am always looking for new ways to try them. I love them as fries, nachos, in soups and chili.i
