Happy BIGGEST LOSER FINALE day all! I honestly do NOT know what I am going to watch now that Biggest Loser is over and the new season isn’t starting right away LOL…..
I picked up some of these Weight Watchers Mini Cream Cheeses while grocery shopping this week because I have been craving a good, doughy bagel with cream cheese.
The next best thing is taking an Orowheat Double Fiber English muffin with 1/2 the cream cheese tub and 1/2 Tbsp Low Sugar Apricot Preserves.
Then, adding in a Morning Star Maple Veggie Sausage.
Savory, sweet, creamy and delicious (it’s sort of like dipping your sausage in maple syrup) (6 points+)
Plus a big bowl of “fruit salad” for dessert with lots of coffee!
I was rushing around in meetings all morning so my snacks were grabbed on the go. Banana plus a Weight Watchers Light String Cheese (1 points+).
Lunch was the last serving of our Skillet Gnocchi with Chard & White Beans. This is tasty the next day, but, I LOVE the way the string “cheeses” when you scoop it up on the day it is made (9 points+)
It has been WAY TOO long since I’ve had Spicy Asian Peanut Slaw ~ I realized that as I was scarfing down the bowl.
1 cup Organic Broccoli Slaw
1/2 cup Organic Shredded Carrots
2 Tbsp Trader Joe’s (or LIte House!) Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (2 points+)
Sprinkle of red pepper flakes
1 BIG BOWL of deliciousness!
Dessert involved a Jo’s Dark Chocolate Sea Salted Caramel~ most likely eaten with sound effects ~ LOVE! (2 points+)
Mid afternoon snack Part 1
Mid afternoon snack part 2 ~ Pete’s Medium Iced Dirty Latte (Latte +1 pump mocha) (4 points+)
The folks over at Schwan’s know I LOVE my grill and asked if I would like to try their Flat Iron Steaks. I have always been intrigued by Flat Iron Steaks because they do not sell them near us (California is all about Tri Tip!).
7 points+ each
I unthawed the steaks in the fridge overnight and this morning I marinated them in Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki. You probably do not need to season/marinade these steaks, but, I wanted to add a little extra.
We both absolutely LOVED the Flat Iron Steaks. I had planned on eating half, but, after one tender melt in your mouth bite, I decided it was worth it to eat the entire steak.
Served with sautéed mushrooms on the side.
I went with just 1/3 cup Potato Salad since I decided to eat the entire steak (2 points+)
A long with an extra crispy Grilled Romaine Salad (1 points+) It’s definitely better when you do NOT burn it ~ oops!
Simple, easy, delicious and only 2 dishes to wash I <3 my grill!
I also whipped up lunches for the week while I cooked dinner. I’ve made this before….any guessed on what it is?! Better yet, anyone want some? I have like 8 cups LOL.
NEW AT FRIENDS FOR WEIGHT LOSS

I am pretty much happy that both purple girls are in the top two as I have been rooting for them all the time. LOVE them!
