I have such a FUN post for you all today that includes FANTASTIC kickstart eats and some fun organizers that I am super excited to share.
My 3 Weight Watcher Point Kickstart breakfast today was Apple Cinnamon Oats in my super cool new Annie’s cup.
1/2 c Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 c water
All cooked in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Stir in 1/2 c natural applesauce and cinnamon. Sprinkled with more cinnamon and a packet of Raw Sugar ~ YUM!
I had a cup of Celestial True BLUEBERRY Tea on the side that I received in my Blogger goodie swap. I LOVE that it was actually blue ~ it was tasty and would be totally like dessert with some agave nectar added.
I pondered more shopping at lunch, but, was pretty much sold when my co-workers mentioned Mamarella’s! I LOVE this place, but, realized this was the first time I’ve ever eaten inside. We sat next to this HUGE wreath that smelled amazing ~ now I totally WANT to put something pine like on me at all times:D
Fun decor inside ~ LOVE the artwork.
I started off with a cup of Tuscany White Bean Soup. I LOVED how broth like it was and the addition of fresh spinach on top was AWESOME!
Did you all guess it?! I “know” I NEED to branch out to try something else, but, when, you find something that is THAT good, why not get it again.
Grilled Beet Salad with grilled chicken added.
I actually think I ate an entire TWO roasted beets. The cheese is ricotta salata sorta like the parmesan version of ricotta. It added a great saltiness to the sweet beets and oranges.
I stole one of my co-workers chips when she said that they were homemade ~ I’ve never met a chip I didn’t like.
Since there were THREE of us, we could totally justify a GIA! One day, I will order this as a MEAL itself. Ready to hear what it’s made of???
Pizza dough stuffed with BANANA and NUTELLA and sprinkle with powdered sugar and cocoa = LOVE!!!!
I picked up a 2 WWP Decaf Fat Free Latte and drizzled the foam with honey for my afternoon snack.
Plus 2 points of cashew nuttiness.
I know you all have been wondering when I was going to get back to cooking and providing recipes, right?! Tonight, I finally whipped up a delicious NEW recipe ~ Spicy Potato and Corn Chowder ~ 6 Points a Serving! I don’t think The Husband could handle the heat, but, I LOVED it! The perfect soup to warm you up on a cold winter night and it takes minutes to cook. No worries ~ the recipe is coming soon.
Have you all ever heard of Knock Knock? They are this really fun company that creates interesting and creative stationary products for just about anything you can think of. I think that they have some great organizational products, like the Plan-A-Meal Bundle and HILARIOUS products like the Total Crap Folder, 2010 365 Days to Procrastinate Calendar, and the “While You Were Nifty Notes” . The Husband totally thinks I need The DECISION KIT because he would totally make me wear the PIN when I make a decision ~ whatev!
I seriously could spend hours looking at their site and cracking up ~ I LOVE that they bring humor into the organization process.
The Plan-A-Meal Bundle rocks! You get 3 things to help you DO LESS and EAT MORE ~ um, total selling point for me right there 🙂
The ALL OUT OF PAD includes little boxes that you can check off of things you run out of as you eat. It has a magnet right on it so you put in on the fridge so
YOUR HUSBAND, you can mark them off as you use them up. LOVE it!
The next note pad in the kit is the WHAT TO EAT PAD. I plan out all my meals on the back of my shopping list so this will definitely help to keep me from throwing out the list of what to make. Each note pad includes 60 pages.
Even the descriptions on the back are fun and the magnet is HUGE so it won’t slide off your door!
The TAKEOUT MENU ORGANIZER takes dining out to a whole new level. I have only thought to collect menus, but, this allows you to organize them.
It comes with a set of dividers and sticking labels that are broken down by cuisine.
I LOVE the menu order forms and tip calculate on the side. I can totally see asking The Husband to “place his order” with these.
A pen attached so you NEVER need to find one. They seriously have thought of EVERYTHING you need.
The first divider has a place to put all the numbers of the places you frequently call so you don’t have to dig through menus to find the number.
Each cuisine divider has a pocket to put the menu or receipts or orders in along with a different fun quote on the bottom. This one from Yogi Berra is MY FAVORITE “You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I’m not hungry enough to eat six!” 😀
Finally, to make you a pro at ordering out, an entire page dedicated to the process of ordering TAKE OUT ~ seriously, who knew there was such a thing?!
A BIG THANKS to the people at Knock-Knock, I am super impressed and The Husband is already trying to figure out what to order next.
I am definitely thinking that some of their things would make FUN STOCKING stuffers and gifts for my co-workers!
OHHHHH and it gets BETTER ~ I will be hosting a KNOCK KNOCK GIVEAWAY for you all beginning TOMORROW NIGHT!
I am off to type up my Spicy Potato and Corn Chowder recipe for you all then zonk out.
See you all tomorrow for some GIVEAWAY FUN!
