Happy Biggest Loser day all!! I think that I actually LOVE waffles more than pancakes and even though you use the same batter to make either, waffles taste better. I have been wanting waffles for awhile now but there is only one little hang-up ~ my waffle iron died…..
Enter Kashi’s new 7-Grain Waffles….
Chalked full of “the good stuff”….
2 for 4 points+
Topped with a Morning Star Veggie Sausage (2 points+) and 1 Tbsp of Pure Maple Syrup (1 points+).
One delicious wafflewich. The only thing that might be better ~ a MAPLE BACON WAFFLEWICH…..I might just have to make that one tomorrow!
I had planned on building a salad today but today I knew I was too hungry to have just salad. Instead, I participated in our pick your own enchilada special at the Cafe!
2 Chicken Enchiladas for 11 points+
I LOVE that they used chipotles in their enchilada sauce and packed them full of chicken over cheese…
Topped with mounds of pico de gallo and corn!
The black beans had a bunch of veggies ~ what a fantastic idea for “bulking” them up.
1/2 cup = 2 points+
1/2 cup Spanish rice = 3 points+
This is what happens when you put your husband in charge of dinner
On my way home, he messaged me asking how he could help prepare dinner.
I told him we were going to have grilled shrimp skewers with brown rice and cucumber salad for dinner.
He then replied saying we only had 30 shrimp and were 18 shrimp shy of a full 1 lb so he was going to pick a few other things to go with them….just a few
I LOVE these Aidells Chicken Meatballs because they are an excellent grab and go option for snacks and/or meals.
Decent ingredient list….
1 points+ each even when you have 3!
These “balls” are totally moist, slightly sweet from the teriyaki with hints of pineapple and black pepper. They are delicious served on the side, in lettuce cups, on skewers, in soups….the list goes on….I bought them at Costco (3 points+)
Did you know you can actually have 2 oz of shrimp for only 1 points+? That would be about 1-2 Ginger Sesame Teriyaki Shrimp Skewers depending on the side of your shrimp (DEAL!)
We made our own teriyaki sauce (not really sure why because we have some in the fridge)
- 1/2 cup Mirin Japanese Wine
- 1/4 cup agave nectar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp sesame oil
- 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated
- Dash of sriracha
I wish I had saved some of the sauce to put on my 1/2 cup sesame brown rice (3 points+) because it was so good LOL.
Instead, I used the dressing from our sesame cucumber salad (topped with rice vinegar, sesame oil, agave, sesame seeds, sea salt & black pepper).
Light, healthy and packed with flavor for only 8 points+.
Are you a waffle, pancake or neither person?
I am LOVING The Halloween theme on BL, but, I cannot believe they showed people smooching on Biggest Loser!!! I LOVE that they are showing who is in a relationship because we are always guessing LOL……Off to snack on some watermelon and hope Bonnie gets voted off tonight
