Happy Saturday all! Today I discovered a way to make my “Dirty Lattes” even BETTER without changing the points+……I have a feeling a new Starbuck’s addiction might be coming on Before we headed out for our weekend Lattes, I made sure to eat a powered up breakfast.
I woke up craving a One Egg Wonder Eggwich.
* 2 slices TJ’s FF Multi-Grain Bread (3 points+)
* 1 “Fried” Egg (2 points+)
* and my new secret sauce.
I LOVE that the folks over at I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter are now making their spray with an Olive Oil Blend.
Funny fact about me ~ Oranges are quite possibly one of my FAVORITE fruits around (love the taste, smell & juice), but, I HATE peeling them because your hands smell like oranges all day. I ALWAYS cut them if I have nobody to peel them for me.
A few slices usually end up in my water each time too.
Not too shabby for 5 points+.
I think I discovered my FAVORITE new drink at Starbuck’s today!
Grande Nonfat Decaf Latte with 1 pump mocha + 1 pump coconut = OMG GOOD!
The BEST part is ~ it’s STILL 4 points+!!
Check it out:
Grande FF Latte = 130 cal, 0g fat, 19g carb, 13g prot, 0g fiber,
1 Pump Mocha = 25 cal, 0g fat, 6g carb, 1g prot, 0g fiber
1 Pump Coconut = 20 cal, 0 g fat, 5g carb, 0g prot, 0 g fiber, 1
TOTAL DRINK = 175 cal, 0g fat, 30g carb, 14g prot, 1g fiber = 4 Points+
Even though it’s still early in Farmer’s Market Season, we picked up some pretty awesome fruit.
Cherries ~ and they taste good too!
Blueberries (since the guy wasn’t sampling, I asked him if his blueberries were firm.) Totally normal right? I mean, who likes mushy blueberries.
My FAVORITE tortillas of all time ~ Chipotle/Flour & Green Chili Corn.
2 types of hummus ~ Roasted Red Pepper and Black Bean with Chipotle & Harissa!
Cheese Jalapeno Almonds that are sort of like smoke house almonds with a kick.
After the market and doing some shopping for our landscaping, we came home and had leftovers.
We both agreed the Super Cheesy Butternut Squash Mac n Cheese tastes even better the next day (11 points+)
1/2 a serving Sweet Potato & Cabbage Slaw (1 points+)
I spent the afternoon shopping for some new spring/summer clothes since BlogHERFood11 is less than 2 weeks away.
I stopped for a quick snack before I headed out to stock up on the rest of our groceries for the week.
I had 14 Spicy Jalapeno almonds for 2 points+.
You all sort of know I had a thing for Tracey’s Trail Mix and now that it’s gone, I HAD to make my own. It’s pretty simple to make……
Start with Trader Joe’s Organic High Fiber O’s (or your favorite “other” brand).
I can’t believe cereal gets such a ding ~ 5 points+ a serving, but, I LOVE it when I do have cereal. It fills me up, it’s slightly sweet and it’s crunchy enough it doesn’t get soggy.
The rest of the mix.
Combine everything in a bowl and toss it together ~ simple, right?! I guessed on what portion sizes she used (All of the mango & cereal plus 1 cup of everything else).
It’s crunchy, salty, sweet, chewy, nutty and just plain good!

Nutritional information per serving
The Husband requested steak sandwiches for dinner. I actually bought everything to make the Weight Watchers Cheesesteak Sandwiches, but, then, decided to do everything on the grill instead.
3 oz Tri Tip steak seasoned with Emeril’s Original Essence & Whiskey Black Pepper Steak Sauce tossed with sautéed mushrooms on hollowed out French Bread (7 points+)
Plus a little corniness. (2 points+)
Happy Mom’s Day everyone!!!
