Happy Sunday all! Thanks for all your nice comments on my Healthy Super Bowl Recipes & Menu Ideas. I have fun each year building on the list and adding new recipes I’ve tried and/or seen. It is really hard to pair them down because as you all know, I have a “slight” recipe collecting addiction and there are so many fantastic ideas out there ~ hello pizza party, nacho bar and wings!
I am so freakin’ excited to share my weigh in this week ~ I was down 2.8 LBS bringing me only .6 lbs away from my 7 lb Valentine’s Day Goal!!
The Husband did awesome too ~ he lost 4.2 LBS ~ so proud of him for making his first week all about healthy swaps and tracking!
I am so glad my FANTASTIC leader had breakfast ready & waiting because I was STARVING this morning.
I started with 2 B’s ~ Banana & Sara Lee Blueberry Bagel (3 points+).
Plus 7 raw almonds for 1 points+.
After the meeting, we headed cover to The Husband’s favorite Starbuck’s ~ Notice anything in the picture?!
He is ALWAYS doing that to me and wondering if I’ll notice someone is in the picture ~ clown!
Venti Iced Coffee with 1 Pump Mocha & a splash of half & half (2 points+)
I probably cannot even count how many stores I have been in looking for them…..but, My Mom actually went to Blue Diamond and bought me a case for my Birthday!!!
Now that IS LOVE!!! It’s the little things ~ thanks MOM!!!
5 points+ for 1 oz ~ salty, crunchy, vinegary and absolutely amazing!
The Husband was all excited to get his grill on today at lunch for our friends. I knew all I had to do was buy his FAVORITE Bill Bailey Carne Asada and he would be all about cooking for us
I told him he could pick out any of the Mission Tortillas yesterday when were stocking up for the week. I was pretty excited when he showed me these Corn & Whole Wheat Blended tortillas.
But, I was REALLY bummed when I looked at the ingredients today ~ they contain transfat and what exactly is interesterfied…..note to self, stick to the Trader Joe’s version :/
2 points+ each.
I made up TWO Carne Asada burritos topped with 2 oz Grilled Carne Asada and 1/2 oz of reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese.
Then, I topped them with a bunch of spice and crunch ~ jalapenos, romaine blend, tomatoes, green onions and 1/8 avocado.
8 points+ for both ~ DEAL! I added hot sauce and drizzled with 0% Greek Yogurt post picture.
Dinner went together even faster than lunch thanks to The Husband who decided he was doing all the “cooking” today.
I started with a “Husband Salad” ~ he whipped this up for us for dinner because it’s ZERO points+. I am pretty sure he is IN LOVE with anything that is ZERO! Topped with 1 TbspNewman’s Lite Lime Vinaigrette (1 point+)
Trader Joe’s Sharp Cheddar Squares (4 points+) and 8 Social Crackers (3 points+)….quite possibly my FAVORITE thing ever when you do not want to cook….LOVE!
Simple, delicious, totally random, but, exactly what I was craving.
