Happy Friday Eve all! Only ONE more day and I’ve survived my first week back from vacation. I am probably about as excited to sleep in as I was to sleep in our bed when we got home on Sunday night LOL. My day started off with a Power Walk from the train station ~ I say POWER WALK because it was freezing outside so I was walking fast to get warm!
Before heading out for the train, I whipped up another 5 minute Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Burrito to take with me (6 points+)
The only bummer is that it didn’t hold me over as long ~ 4 hours later, I NEEDED a snack. I actually think sometimes on days that I drink more coffee I am hungrier….maybe?
A banana plus a Trader Joe’s Light String Cheese (1 points+).
I am not usually a fan of eating frozen meals because they rarely fill me up and honestly it is so easy to make something “quick” to take with you on the go.
The folks over at Weight Watchers asked me if I’d review the new Satisfying Selections Meals because the portions are BIGGER without killing your points+ budget.
Usually when I do have a frozen meal, I will add a bunch of frozen veggies and sometimes lead protein to make it feel like more.
I have to admit though ~ you get A LOT more with the Satisfying Selections. The bag is ONE SERVING and filled my entire plate for 8 points+ ~ not too shabby.
Rounded out with my Simple Salad ~ I learned something NEW this morning though. You can actually have TWO Tbsp of Dried Cranberries for 1 points+ (the same as 1 Tbsp).
Obviously I made the switch toped with 2 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette and 1 Tbsp sunflower seeds (4 points+).
Eaten with my imaginary friend
Train Snacks ~ Weight Watchers Cinnamon Pops (2 points+) and one fantastic organic Fuji apple.
The Husband requested his favorite meal for dinner and I was all for it ~ dinner is on the table in 15 minutes and it’s the perfect “comfort” food dinner.
1 cup Pacific Foods Organic Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup (3 points+)
Plus grilled cheese for dipping! Not really, I think dipping your sandwich in your soup is kinda gross, but, he LOVES doing that.
- 2 slices Trader Joe’s Fat Free Multi-Grain Bread (3 points+)
- 1 oz 2% Sharp Cheddar (2 points+)
- 1 Tbsp Whipped Butter (2 points+)
I actually think I will get back to “real” cooking with new recipes next week…..Get ready for another giveaway coming up tomorrow!
- Total Daily Points+ used ~ 27
- Total Activity Points earned ~ 3 for “power walking” 3 miles to/from the train.
Do you dip your sandwiches in your soup?
It’s ok to be a dipper or a dunker because I think I am the oddball not doing it…I don’t even like crackers in my soup ~ they get mushy
Just one more day ~ Night al!!!
