Hi all! How was your weekend? Our weekend was nice and relaxing after the busy, fun week last week. I decided today that I can officially eat fall foods now – bring on the pumpkin! and I am so excited about that.
Scrambled egg with 2 Jennie-O lean turkey sausage patties and a sweet persimmon (2 sp).Mid morning we stopped at Starbucks and I got a tall nonfat one pump chai tea latte with cinnamon on top (4 sp).I really wanted to see if I could put a Pumpkin spin on these Cinnamon Banana Muffins.
I swapped out the applesauce for 2/3 cup pumpkin and subbed 1 Tbsp pumpkin spice for half the cinnamon.
The verdict – super moist spiced muffins that are slightly sweet with hints of banana and pumpkin goodness. I love that they are only 2 WWFreestyle Smartpoints each too.I also made a batch of Healthy Homemade Pesto to make lunches this week and froze the rest for another time.I am actually super excited for lunch this week after making this Chicken, Butternut, Pesto Gnocchi recipe. I pretty much followed the recipe making a few substitutions.
I used zero point chicken breast versus chicken thighs, used a low homemade point pesto and used kale instead of spinach. I also used 12 oz potato gnocchi then divided everything into 6 servings for 5 SmartPoints each.After prepping for the week, we stopped for lunch at Panda Express.
I had a bowl with mushroom chicken over mixed veggies (5 sp) plus my fortune cookie for dessert (1 sp).The Husband was in charge of dinner tonight. 3 oz grilled New York steak (4 sp), corn on the cob, Taylor Farms Mediterranean Salad (4 sp).10 Peanut M&M’s for dessert (5 sp)
