Is it Friday yet?? Ok…well, at least it’s ALMOST here 🙂 Since I have been waking up starving, I decided to go with a more filling breakfast that balanced our protein, carbs, fiber and fat. I whipped up a 6 point Egg Sandwich on Trader Joe’s FAa Free Multi-Grain Bread with a “fried” in nonstick spray egg and whipped butter.
FUN FACT ~ Did you all know that whipped butter is 1 Weight Watcher Point less than the non whipped version (2 pts versus 3 ~ bonus plan!)
My breakfast theory didn’t work this time….After about 2 hours I was STARVING. I waited 3 hours and had a substantial 4 point snack.
I brought my TJ’s Dark Chocolate Pomegranate seeds today to share (I am such a nice co-worker, huh?!) So, I had 2 Tbsp for 2 points savoring each one. It definitely did the trick and finally satisfying me 🙂
As you all probably know by now, I LOVE Mammarella’s for their GIGANTIC Beet Chicken salad. However, I have forever been wanting to try the Spinach Ricotta Gnocchi and today figured I was going all out to try it. I tried on Monday when I went with The Husband and they were all out. So, when, my co-worker and I headed there today, I was FOR SURE they’d have it. No such luck ~ me + Gnocchi is not meant to be. 🙁
I completely didn’t know what to order when they told me they didn’t have it AGAIN! I went with what the server recommended.
I started off with a cup of FANTASTIC tomato basil soup ~ I’d definitely get this again. I did ask if it was cream based before ordering and the cook said he used 1 1/2 cups to 2 gallons of vegetable broth. I counted that as not being cream based 😉 (I guesstimated it at 2 points)
Plus a cute couple pieces of bread.
Then, the odd part of my lunch came out ~ A Chicken Quesadilla (from this ITALIAN place).
It looks really good, but, it was eh, ok. It’s not something special so I probably wouldn’t order it again. I always think when you go out, the food should be better than you can make at home 🙂 (6 point guesstimate based on ww online)
I started thinking I should’ve TOTALLY just had the GIA for my ENTIRE meal. It’s a Nutella banana Calzone topped with powdered sugar and cocoa powder. TOTAL HEAVEN!!! I guesstimated my serving as 6 points and worth EVERYONE even though it left me with very little points left.
I figured since I went a little crazy at lunch and was FINALLY full that dinner needed to be something on the lighter side. I whipped out another pack of frozen veggies (told you all I bought a TON of these Green Giant Packs – LOVE them!) The immunity blend is ok, but, it does seem like a frozen veggie to me.
1 point a serving!
With a good ingredient list.
I took 1 cup of veggies and then added the STAR INGREDIENT….
I pulled a batch of Roasted Butternut Squash Soup that I made during the Bikini Bootcamp Challenge from the freezer!
Then topped it with sea salt, freshly ground pepper and a few roasted almond slices.
OMG ~ I NOW know why I FREEZE everything ~ this totally hit the spot and I am completely stuffed. All together my soup was 4 points and I’d definitely say I met my fruit/veggie requirement :).
I have been super tired and SORE all day so I am giving my legs a REST today. I am definitely getting to bed early tonight to get up for an early morning 3 mile run tomorrow.
You have one more day to WIN THIS SOUPER PRIZE!
Off to read my new book and relax ~ Nite all!
