Happy Hump Day all! I LOVE that the week is already HALF over I woke up this morning to the delicious smell of the Crockpot Split Pea Soup bubbling away. It’s probably the first time I’ve ever in my life pondered having split pea soup for breakfast ~ what can I say, I am a savory, not sweet, person in the morning LOL.
Don’t worry, I refrained ~ you are not going to see a BIG BOW of green for breakfast. I took the leftover Jennie-O Smoked Turkey Sausage and fried it up for breakfast.
2 ounces = 2 points+ Deal! plus a 1/4 cup eggbeaters with hot sauce (1 points+)
Plus a delicious Double Fiber Oro-Wheat English Muffin sprayed with ICBINB Spray ~ I LOVE that they only went up by 1 pp (3 points+)
One awesome breakfast for ONLY 6 points+! LOVE!
I almost skipped my mid morning snack, but, when I realized I wouldn’t get lunch until 130, I knew I had to have something. I grabbed a big bag of veggies with 2 Tbsp of Ranch to snack on as I drove (4 points+)…..don’t you all wish you were on the road with me then?! LOL I got some funny looks…
I pretty much inhaled lunch part 1 ~ Crunchy Broccoli Slaw ~ Trader Joe’s Organic Broccoli Slaw topped with 1 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Spicy LF Peanut Dressing (1 point+)
Then, FINALLY, that split pea soup I’ve been craving ever since the last time I made it. It totally hit the spot! I am not sure I’ve ever been more in love with a GREEN soup….Thank you VickY for creating and sharing this recipe! (7 points+)
I am pretty sure that TODAY my body thinks it is stocking up to hibernate for the winter because I have been hungry every couple of hours. I HATE days like that, but, I don’t feel guilty when it justifies a snack.
Mid afternoon snackage ~ TJ’s Social Crackers with Laughing Cow (4 points+)
I LOVE CALIFORNIA because you can BBQ in the middle of winter! I totally turned on my grill outside to whip up some delicious Gayle’s Sweet & Sassy Apple Cider BBQ Chicken.
Is it weird that when I BBQ, I CRAVE KALE CHIPS?! I LOVE these 0-2 points+ Chips because they crunch and tastes like salty chips.
They are so easy to make.
1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees – you want a HIGH temperature.
2. Tear your kale into “pieces” away from the stem, rinse, spin in your salad spinner and towel dry. It’s really important to get the moisture off of them so they get crunchy versus steam.
3. Place your chips on a cookie sheet. Use nonstick spray with sea salt and black pepper for 0 points+ OR drizzle with 2 tsp Olive Oil and 2 tsp Parmesan Cheese with sea salt & black pepper for 2 points+ for the ENTIRE PAN.
Bake for 7 minutes, until crispy, but, not burned.
Pile them on your plate and eat them straight up or dip in ketchup.
BBQ Chicken! I am a sucker for a BBQ drumstick, I always have been, always will be LOL (3 points+)
Annie’s Organic Shells and Wisconsin Cheddar ~ the CHEESIEST! (7 points+)
More veggie goodness ~ swiss chard!
One HUGE plate of goodness because sometimes you just have to EAT WHAT YOU CRAVE! I totally had a “green day” getting all my veggies+ in

What is your favorite vegetable?
If I had to pick, I’d say corn LOL, but, I know that is not “technically” a vegetable. 2nd choice is sugar snap peas, swiss chard and kale….Ya, I pretty much can never pick just one thing ~ notice that?!
