Happy Friday Eve all! Today was a FANTASTICALLY FREEZING sunny day, but, I pretty much figure the cold (California Cold in the 60’s) doesn’t matter ~ all that matters is that it isn’t raining. I was so glad to get outside and knock off a 4.25 mile run today. I felt FAST too 😀
So I am just your typical California girl who LOVES, LOVES Grits! I can eat them straight up, sweet or savory, but, they are honestly one of my FAVORITE things to eat :D (I LOVE that they are a FILLING FOOD too!)
Since I picked some up last night, I had 2 points of Quaker Instant Grits topped with just a sprinkle of whipped butter and a sprinkle of brown sugar.
Plus 2 points of Eggsellant Protein.
1 1/2 cups Strawberries (1 pt)
Totally delicious and satisfying for 5 points!
Mid morning I wasn’t feeling my yogurt, so I grabbed a Low Fat Sargento Colby Cheese. I actually remembered to take a picture of the front for those who asked.
And the back ~ 1 point of cheesy goodness that totally doesn’t taste low-fat at all. I buy them at Sam’s Club.
I stole a few of my co-workers crunchy snacks (swapped for ChocoLOVE of course!). 6 Olive Oil & Rosemary Triscuits (2 pts).
Plus, my NEW FAVORITE THING! Have you all tried these Alexia Crunchy HOT Waffle Fries (3 points a serving). They taste like spicy waffle fry chips LOL. I am counting this as a point since 8 are in a serving. The HEAT totally grows on you.
After my lunchtime run, I came back for my last 8 point serving (with AVOCADO) of my Slow Cooker Turkey & Bean Burrito Bake. I am so sad it’s gone, but, I am sure you all are tired of seeing it. I topped today’s with Sriracha ~ some like it HOT! I WISH I did this all along.
I really think that Sriracha Hot Sauce is totally addictive. You start out with just a little, but, you always end up adding more and MORE!
I had some mini peppers on the side for crunch.
Served up on my FAVORITE fun plate with Sobe Vitamin Water.
I was STILL hungry after lunch, but, I waited an hour before I broke out some Snackimals!
3 points a serving (1/2 the bag)
I totally LOVED these little animal crackers and how the monkey is rubbing his belly/touching his head :D I have to admit for being Wheat Free, you couldn’t even tell.
I had a fun meal planned for tonight but I learned the hard way my Plantains were not ripe (I couldn’t peel them at all!) I drove to TWO stores looking for ripe Plantains but everybody had GREEN ones like me 🙁
I whipped up a POM Nectarine Mocktail while I pondered what else to make for dinner. Plain POM and POM Blueberry are still my favorite two flavors ~ this one tastes flowery to me 🙂
I decided to go for Quick & Easy. I pulled out my Eat Smart Precision Pro Scale and measured out an ounce of Chicken.
Plus an house of TJ’s Spicy Marinated Mozzarella.
I HONESTLY use my scale every day ~ each time you see me listing the ingredients in oz, grams or what not, it’s because I weighed it out to get more. I cannot be trusted to eye ball my servings because my 1 cup typically is like 1 1/2 cups 😉
I used my chicken and mozzarella to make a quick 4 point salad.
TJ’s Organic Herb Mixed Greens
Chopped Mini Peppers
1 oz Chicken Breast
1 oz TJ’s Marinated Mozzarella
A couple of Organic Herbed Croutons
Topped with Newman’s Light Lime Vinaigrette.
I went lighter on dinner so I could thoroughly enjoy some ChocoLOVE while I watch a movie with The Husband.
5 points for 8 squares in this mini bar and 100 million % worth busting into my Weekly Points Allowance!
I think it’s cute that they still go with their poem theme using quotes in the mini bars.
Tomorrow is the LAST DAY to enter to WIN THREE FREE Eat Smart Precision Pro Scales!
