Happy Monday all! Do you ever have days where you are just not feeling it?! Today was THAT day for me ~ nothing sounded good to eat and I definitely didn’t want to get out to exercise at all. But, you know what I do on days like that???
I FAKE IT TIL I MAKE IT!!! In other words, I give myself permission to eat whatever even if it isn’t balanced or pretty and I MADE myself get out for a walk at lunch even if I knew it wouldn’t be my best one. Eventually if you keep telling yourself all day that it’s WORTH IT and you go through the motions, you believe it and it somehow all works out.
This morning I wasn’t really feeling breakfast, but, I KNEW I wanted “chocolate milk” Venti Iced Nonfat Decaf Latte with 1 Pump Mocha….aka a “Dirty Latte” (4 points+) I totally can justify it because you know, it counts as a dairy serving!
Nothing really sounded good to me today for breakfast but I KNEW I wanted a big bowl of Fruit ~ Banana and the most delicious pineapple ever!
WW Cinnamon Crumb Supreme Bar!!! I cannot tell you all how much I am IN LOVE with this bar and that is a BIG thing because I am NOT a bar person ~ I’d rather have real food any day.
Can you see how chewy, brown sugary, cinnamony it is? It literally melts in your mouth. <3!
I actually whipped up my lunch for today yesterday morning. I have been craving THESE BUTTERNUT SQUASH RAVIOLI’S IN A BROWNED BUTTER CRANBERRY PECAN SAUCE ever since I made.
I didn’t have the AWESOME Home Made Ravioli’s that I get at the Farmer’s Market, but, the Trader Joe’s Butternut squash ravioli’s are a good trade off. (9 points+)
I knew I’d NEED more to go with my pasta so I roasted a butternut squash with sea salt and 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive oil at 450 for 30 minutes turning half way through.
Then, I topped it with a 1/4 cup dried cranberries and fresh thyme to match the ravioli flavor. I had 1/3 the recipe for 4 points+.
Dessert ~ a big bowl of cantaloupe.
Dinner tonight was going to be our Build a Chipotle Bowl, but, I really just wasn’t feeling it. The Husband suggested BFD (no, not my thoughts on today )
We had BFD = Breakfast for Dinner and it was SO GOOD!
I used my “One Egg Wonder” pan that he got me to “Fry” my egg.
Isn’t it the cutest pant ever?! it does make perfectly round eggs.
SEE! 2 points+
Hash browns!! I totally wish I had Jicama or I would’ve been all over making Jicama Hash browns. I shredded 12 oz of Yukon Gold potato and “fried” them in 1 Tbsp canola oil with garlic salt and black pepper……MMMMMM! (5 points+) ~ a great way to fit in your healthy oil guideline!
TJ’s Peppered Turkey Bacon (2 points+)
TJ’s Fat Free Multi-Grain Bread with 1 Tbsp Whipped Butter (5 points+)

What is your favorite thing to have for dinner with NOTHING sounds good?
For me, it is usually mac & cheese or cheese and crackers with fruit. However, I am kind of digging our Diner Style BFD tonight!
