Happy Biggest Loser Finale Day all!! It was so fun reading who you all are voting for and why you think they should win. I have to agree with all of you ~ Go Ramone & Antone…but, I still can’t root for John LOL….As for the At Home Winner ~ I am torn, but, I think Vinnie since he is achieving something he has NEVER had in his life. I am so inspired by everyone on that show and will be secretly cheering them on for maintenance (the hardest part, I think!)
This morning I was up by 5 AM to get a jump start on my work day. Since I knew I was heading out for another lunch out, I decided to keep breakfast light.
Fruit “Salad” ~ My addiction of the week!
Rounded out with a Grande Dirty Latte as my reward for going in super early (4 points+).
Lunch today was at a place I have never heard of, but, now, I am completing wondering why!
The Water Boy Restaurant is located in Mid-Town Sacramento and serves up a new Italy & French Menu each month with seasonal specials.
You can find them on the corner right across from Jack’s Urban Eats (my other favorite place!)….just look for the outdoor patio and follow the chalk art to the door.
My Big Boss said that she goes here because the Waterboy Deluxe Burger is one of the BEST in town…..with a recommendation like that (and Bubbies Pickles ~ I liked the name LOL), how can you not join in!
I resisted the bread and butter ~ Success!!! Doesn’t it look good though?!
I also asked them to trade my fries for a side salad ~ Success!!
Afterall, it’s all about balance and moderation! My Big Boss knows her burgers ~ seriously….I had to focus on not making sounds while eating this LOL.
The burger was totally juicy and seasoned perfectly ~ you could actually TASTE every single thing on the burger too ~ the creamy cheese, sweet tomatoes, tart pickles, grilled onions and perfectly toasted, yet, soft bread……It was so good, I want to go back tomorrow LOL.
I broke down all the toppings and came up with 12 points+ for the burger and 2 points+ for the Italian Dressing on the salad (estimate.)
Dessert!!! We tried both, but, I pretty much fell IN LOVE with and ate practically all of this
Meyer Lemon Roullade Cake with Mascarpone & Candied Meyer Lemon! (6 points+)
She ordered the Caramel Chocolate Truffle with Sea Salt ~ it was so dense and rich ~ perfect when savored with coffee.
The thing I found really interesting about lunch was that I left completely satisfied and proud of my choices. I ordered what I really wanted and made a few adjustments (no bread or fries) to balance it out.
I also lighted up dinner with a BIG Veggie Packed Bowl of Chicken Cilantro Potsticker Soup (4 points+).
I was still hungry after my soup so I made up a small bowl of Spicy Asian Slaw (1 points+).
Broccoli Slaw & Carrots topped with 1 Tbsp Trader Joe’s LF Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette.
Coming on tomorrow morning~ one of my FAVORITE Signs of the Week for Wordless Wednesday and my contribution to Eating Bird Food’s 2nd Annual 12 Days of COOKIES!!! There are so many delicious cookie ideas for all those doing a cookie exchange and/or baking for the holidays.
For now ~ it’s “almost” finale time!!!!
