Today was a fantastic Monday ~ doesn’t that seem wierd to hear me say that for a “Monday”? The odd part is I have no real apparent reason LOL. I started my day off with a fantastic double workout which really set the tone for the day. I felt amazing after getting in a good sweat session.
After my Power Hour workout, I was pretty much starved! So, I had a Banana Nut Pumpkin Butter Muffin with a nice smear of Homemade Healthy Pumpkin Butter ~ SO GOOD, I cannot describe it.
I got my protein in the natural way with this amazing Berrylicious Smoothie.
1/2 c TJ’s 0% Greek Yogurt
1/2 c FF Milk
1/2 c Fresh Frozen Blueberries
1/2 c Fresh Frozen Strawberries
1 Tbsp Flax Seed
It was so incredible thick and creamy that I couldn’t drink it on my way to work. I had to wait until I got a spoon ~ oops!
I wanted salty and crunchy for my mid-morning snack, so I whipped out some Salty Pepper Somersaults.
I had 1/2 the bag as one serving for 3 Weight Watcher Points. I LOVED the nuttiness of the sunflower seeds with the salt and pepper spices.
I was looking forward to my lunch since I thought of it yesterday. It is nothing fancy at all and I had to use our super cool bowls at work (don’t mind the mismatching – it all works the same to eat off of.) I started off with an Herby Salad that I topped with Trader Joe’s Low-Fat Cranberry Walnut Gorgonzola dressing after snapping the picture.
I took a 1/2 c serving of my Crockpot Molasses Baked Beans over 3/4 c Trader Joe’s Organic Frozen Brown Rice….
Mixed it all together and had the perfectly balanced complete meal – so amazing and only 5 Weight Watchers Points!
After lunch, I still wanted something else. I knew I was full and I had strawberries, but, I think I just wanted something else. I told my co-worker Starbuck’s – she said Froyo and I said ~ Yup, that sounds the same! 😀
We headed out to the NEW Over The Top Shop! I heard they had Pumpkin
Froyo and I was all over getting some of that!
But, they didn’t have Pumpkin today 🙁 There were 6 other delicious sounding flavors listed though. No worries, that just means I have to go back!!!
With fun recipe ideas ~ Love the All Natural Idea!
Having my own cup and a machine can be dangerous. The owner was nice enough to give me sample cups to try each flavor ~ It was hard to pick which I wanted.
Then, I turned around and saw this! Holy toppings ~ how do you decide when you have this many to choose from….
Plus a bar filled with caramel, chocolate, marshmallow and more plus COLD toppings.
It was really tough, but after about 5 minutes of randomly talking to myself 😀 I picked Fat Free Cake Batter and Fat Free Chocolate Froyo with sprinkles, Heath Bar Crunch and a few Yogurt Chips ~ MMMMMM!!! Total highlight of my day! I think I could eat FROYO everyday!!!
When we got back to work, my little “sugar” high kicked in and we kidnapped my other co-worker’s massive zucchini so I could quickly take a picture with it. Seriously ~ isn’t this the HUGEST zucchini you’ve ever seen?! Ya, ignore my cheese face smile ~I was laughing way too much when this picture was snapped!
On my way home The Husband informed me he wanted a simple dinner. I LOVE him when he picks things like this for dinner!
This Pacific Foods Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato soup is full of flavor and honestly does not taste like boxed soup at all. I LOVE the nutritionals ~ it isn’t loaded with fattening cream and you can recognize everything they put in the box.
I topped mine with a sprinkle of shaved parmesan and freshly ground pepper.
While the soup heated up, I baked some Whole Wheat Salt & Pepper Pita Chips for dipping.
Plus peppers cooked in olive oil and sea salt.
Dessert Pita Chips just might be my favorite new thing!!!
Salted Whole Wheat Pita Chips + Homemade Healthy Pumpkin Butter + 1 Laughing Cow Lite Wedge = LOVE!!! This tasted like Pumpkin Cheesecake! You can have an entire pita plus 1 LC wedge plus Pumpkin (or Apple Butter if you don’t like Pumpkin – MOM!) for 3-4 Weight Watcher Points. This is only 1/2 a pita served up.
All together, I had dinner with my Pumpkin Family while The Husband watched football.
I feel like I’ve been typing forever tonight. I am off to relax with The Husband and read! Recipes, recipes and more recipes to be posted soon!
