Happy Wednesday all! Thanks for all the nice comments/suggestions on my last post for things The Husband can and for all the ideas for how to freeze herbs. I am definitely going to give all of the above a try.
This morning’s pre-workout/train ride snack ~ a banana and coconut coffee.
When I got in, I hopped on the treadmill for a pretty good C25K jog/walk. I played a few “Treadmill Games” each time I wanted to stop….changing the speed up every 30 seconds so that I focused on the seconds to the next level, not how far the distance was that I needed to go.
I couldn’t wait to dig into breakfast post workout!
3 more Blueberry Kodiak Cakes with 1 tsp Whipped Butter and 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup (7 points+)
Morning Star Veggie Sausage drizzled in the maple syrup (2 points+) I am so hooked on this combination ~ It totally hits the spot ~ salty, sweet, doughy, buttery ~ GOOD!
It didn’t quite hold me over as long as yesterday, but, I think it’s more because I knew I had a big container of watermelon, cantaloupe and pineapple waiting for me.
Plus a Mini Babybel Cheese (1 points+)
Lunch involved my favorite salad…..it’s sweet, crunchy, peanutty, good.
* Organic Mixed Greens plus carrots & a few cherry tomatoes
* 1 Tbsp each ~ dry roasted walnuts & dried cranberries (2 points+)
* 1 Tbsp Trader Joe’s LF Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (1 points+)
I doubled the egg salad that I made up for The Husband this morning and made up a sandwich that I think I NEED to repeat again too lol!
* 2 slices Trader Joe’s FF Multi-Grain Bread (3 points+)
* 1 Hardboiled egg plus 1 hard boiled egg white (2 points+)
* 1 Tbsp RF Mayo & 1 tsp mustard (1 points+)
* Sea Salt and Black Pepper to taste
Since The Husband still isn’t eating too many things, I decided to go with what I knew he would eat ~ Annie’s Mac n Cheese!
Ok ~ well, it’s Annie’s Mac but with the Arthur Shaped Pasta….(7 points+)
It has been nice to have leftovers since I have sort of been on a I don’t feel like cooking mood lately (notice? lol).
I will get back in the kitchen cooking soon ~ once I have a chance to breath and get caught up. There is just too much going on lately and not enough me.
I think I am pretty much over the ribs now. I took a picture of it whole, then, cut off 1 oz to eat (2 points+)
I am pretty sure I will have eaten an entire watermelon all by myself by the time the week is over….I honestly think it’s my favorite summer fruit!

What is your favorite summer fruit?
I think by the time summer rolls around, I am glad to have ANY fruit other than apples, pears and oranges. However, it really depends on what just tastes really good each summer. I find it varies ~ THIS SUMMER ITS WATERMELON, but, I also have 10 different types of fruit in our fridge at the moment LOL.
