Happy Tuesday all! Today was a lot like yesterday, but, I decided that I would start off with a bigger breakfast to see if it helped my hunger levels throughout the day.
I made sure to “power up” for a day with a lot of protein and this Spicy Sausage Egg-wich.
For all those wondering about Trader Joe’s Fat Free Multi-Grain Bread ~ it has been discontinued! I am SO SAD and have been trying to bribe everyone at my local TJ’s to get it back in. I think we all need to write or petition or something to get it back (side note) lol.
- 2 slices Trader Joe’s Fat Free Multi-Grain Bread (3 points+)
- 1 “fried” egg (2 points+)
- Hot & Spicy Morning Star Sausage sliced in half to cover the bread (2 points+)
ONE delicious sandwich that kept me full for 4 hours ~ YES!
Plus a cup of coconut coffee for here & to go (double fuel!)
Before heading out for my 3.4 mile lunchtime power walk I snacked on a banana plus a Trader Joe’s Light String Cheese (1 points+).
I LOVE days that I can get out to get my walk on at lunch and enjoy the sunshine ~ SUCCESS! Today was a perfect balance on sunshine with a crisp breeze.
When I got back to my desk I couldn’t wait to dig in. Lunch was a repeat of yesterday plus some.
Butternut Squash Soup (4 points+)
A LOT of Veggies with 2 Tbsp Lite Ranch (3 points+)
I actually brought yogurt and granola to add in protein with my lunch. However, after thinking about what I really wanted, I decided to go with these……
1/2 oz Sea Salt & Vinegar Almonds ~ I LOVE these, but, know I can ONLY bring a 1/2 a serving or I will eat the entire can (2 points+)
The Husband was in charge of dinner tonight because he said he wanted to “cook” the easy meal this week LOL.
He started us off with 1 cup Trader Joe’s Organic Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup.
This soup is so completely delicious ~ it’s not too sweet and you can taste the pepper and tomatoes (3 points+).
Then, he created his own “take” on BLTA’s because the AVOCADO he bought was totally hard lol.
SIMPLE, DELICIOUS BLT – G’S! Any guesses on the “G”??
Trader Joe’s Guacamole!
Layered with organic mixed greens and super sweet tomatoes.
And 2 thick slices of crispy, uncured applewood smoked bacon!
I am not sure which I LOVE more BLTA’s or BLTG’s, but, both are pretty darn amazing any day or night of the week to me! (9 points+)
I can’t decide which I want to look through first ~ My new Everyday Food Magazine, Food Network Magazine or my new Everyday Food Light Cookbook.
