Happy Weekend all! I am old and fell asleep last night I think right after the credits of our movie and totally forgot to blog. I didn’t realize it until this morning…..LONG WEEK I guess ~ Oops :D Let’s get down to business with how yesterday went down!
Breakfast #1 sounded really good in theory. I mean I LOVE Eggs with hot sauce and I LOVE Grits! One of my AMAZING friends (who happens to be Southern) 😀 told me to try them together, so I figured why not??
Totally and completely NOT my thing. I think it’s a texture thing of maybe a flavor thing…bleh! I think the only SAVORY grits I like are butter and cheese and my egg should be kept separate….oh well, down the sink they went and I came up with another FAST breakfast I could take on the go.
3 points of deliciousness! A Whole Wheat Bagel Thin topped with 1 Tbsp Whipped Butter!
2 points of TJ’s Banana Froyo!
1 point of crunchy grapes. Such an awesome back up breakfast…then again, when can you ever go wrong with bagels plus fruit plus yogurt.
Mid morning my ChocoLOVE was calling my name, but, I had to remind myself that it was Dipped Chocolate Peanut Butter Mojo Bar only 10 am and I didn’t need to start the “crack” that soon! So I pulled out this that the awesome people at Clif Bar left at our work when they stopped by for a visit.
Since I wasn’t willing to spend 5 points on a bar, I had half and called it good! It’s funny the WW Calculator with the nutritionals in 1/2 says 2, but, the online tracker says 2.5 pts – hmmmm!
Thick layers of chocolate, WHOLE ALMONDS and Pretzels…Sweet, salty and totally like a candy bar. I will definitely be picking some of these up….Plus they are BIG – half was plenty!
Since I have been good ALL week and I didn’t have any leftover Cheesy Chicken Plantain Enchiladas to have :(, my co-worker and I headed out for Salad & Pizza at Fazarrati’s. I LOVE that you can make up a GIGANTIC salad with a slice of pizza and a drink for only $5.99 ~ DEAL!
My GIGANTIC salad included:
* Lettuce/cabbage blend
* Tbsp Kidney/Garbanzo Beans
* Red Bell Pepper
* 1/2 an egg sliced
* Tbsp Sunflower Seeds
* Tbsp Crunchy Noodles
* 4 croutons
* 2 Peppercini’s
THE KITCHEN SINK all with the dressing on the side using my fork dip method with each bite ~ AWESOME!
I totally ate it all then dug into this cheesy slice of Veggie Pizza. It was the PERFECT lunch out and a great gossip session.
My lunch kept me full all afternoon long, however, while sitting in traffic on my way home I wanted something sweet. I know I didn’t need to spend a crazy amount of points (chocolate) when I wasn’t hungry, so I whipped out some 1 point Annie’s Organic Fruit Bunnies….So Good! I honestly think Sunny Citrus is my FAVORITE flavor well because it’s sunny like me 😀 Haven’t you all noticed I am just a ray of sunshine??? Kidding LOL.
Dinner was courtesy of the FANTASTIC TJ (My Bay Area Blogger Meet-Up Team Co-Captain!)! I put a spin on her Baked Macaroni & Cheese to make a Cheesy Bacon Vegetable Mac n Cheese that ROCKED!!!!
I LOVED the addition of bacon and extra veggie plus two types of cheese and spice. I will be posting the recipe (hopefully today) so I can add it to my collection (to make it again!) I am thinking that mine comes in at 6-7 points, but, I have to calc it next.
I made up a fast side salad to go with it 1 pt.
Yum, I cannot wait for leftovers tonight!
You all didn’t really think I was done with that and that I’d go all day without chocolate did you? Sometimes you really do just NEED to have milk chocolate and I knew I couldn’t have a couple of pieces of the ChocoLOVE and stop there.
So, I decided to keep it in check and eat the ENTIRE bar of TJ’s 100 Calorie Milk Chocolate bar for 3 points for dessert.
Today is my LAST LONG RUN with my sis BEFORE OUR RACE next weekend!!! Ahhh, so excited and so nervous., We are shooting for 11 miles and then heading to the Whole Foods Salad bar to refuel! Wish us luck!
If I don’t get a chance to post before then, I will post the Cheesy Bacon & Veggie Mac N Cheese Recipe and announce the scale winners when I return later today/tonight.
Have an AWESOME Saturday all!
