Happy Friday Eve all! There was something about yesterday’s post that made me actually crave salads. I am not even sure if that is possible some days, but, I know you all have some pretty tasty salad bar topping combinations that I need to try out.
Today was a “rushed” day from the start with my first meetings of the day starting at 730 am. Some days meetings that early seem wrong lol…..
On my way out the door, I grabbed a banana and a perfectly hard boiled egg to take on my drive. (SF) – 2 points+
One reason I think it is awesome to freeze a serving or two of any foods you make is for days like today. I grabbed a container of my Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup from the freezer for a quick grab & go lunch today. Spiced up with crushed red pepper flakes (SF) – 5 points+
Plus a light string cheese (SF) – 1 points+
And a big bowl of watermelon with grapes. I have decided grapes make watermelon take even better and it’s fun having a few “sweet treats” to eat along the way.
My late afternoon snack was a 0% Peach Oikos. It’s a little floral tasting to me ~ so far my favorite Oikos has been the Apricot Mango I had on Monday.
(SF + 1 WPA) – 3 points+
I managed to get out of the office in time to pick up The Husband and head over to the Thursday Night Farmer’s Market before it closed.
We actually went for the peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots ($1 a lb!!)
But, ended up with 5 lbs of grapes for $0.75/lb – a GRAPE deal!
All 4 varieties grown in Napa Valley!
Then, we finished our trip at the Veggie Guy….aka the Tomato guy I visit each week. Only this week, the deal was on peppers.
Each grab bag was $1……I couldn’t resist the colors…..
or the MINI Peppers!
$1 a bag Squash….
And, last, but, not least…my $1 Kabocha Squash ~ like Acorn squash, but, sweeter.
I honestly was craving Panera today (it’s the salad post, for real!) so we headed over for You Pick 2 after the market.
French Onion Soup (SF + 2 WPA for the croutons/cheese) ~ I swear one day I am going to order just a bag of these croutons to put in my soup – they are so completely buttery, melt in your mouth good.
1/2 a Chicken Cobb ~ sans the stinky cheese for low-fat swiss and with the dressing on the side.(SF+1 WPA for the dressing)
Tonight I also decided I NEEDED that baguette on the side so I went with it. (SF+5 WPA)
Using Panera’s Nutrition Calculator if you are counting, my meal is 13 points+.
Not too bad of a day for AL ~ 3 Activity Points so far and it’s my day off from exercise
STATS (12 am – 10 pm)

Off to catch some zzzzz’s so I can get my last run in for the week tomorrow morning.
