Happy Monday all! I have so many new ideas of recipes I want to try after seeing all your menus this week on yesterday’s post. Monday is one of my favorite posts not only because I get to see your menus, but, also it’s Meatless Monday! How many of you went Meatless today?
Any Meatless day needs to start with…..Healthy Egg Rolls. I actually “thought” I might try something new today…really. Maybe tomorrow LOL.

I had zero motivation today to get to the gym and tried to convince myself to do anything but go. I even texted The Husband and asked Spin or Costco, Spin or Anniversary Gift Shopping….every single time, he said ~ Spin ~ you can do all that “other stuff” after work.
So ~ I went to Spin and I loved it! My favorite instructor was there and she is the only instructor I think I’ve ever believed makes you burn that 500+ calories they say spin burns.
Lunch was a 5 second salad I put together this morning.
Double Protein Power ~ an egg + edamame
Healthy Fats ~ 1 Tbsp. dry roasted almonds, Chew Power ~ dried berries all on top of crunchy mixed greens with cherry peppers and 2 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinaigrette. (SF) – 8 points+
After all the Lay’s Sriracha Chip talk this weekend, I decided to bring in a bag for the office so I could try a few.
The verdict ~ Eh, not bad, but, sriracha does not have sour cream or cheese in it. I think this is the first chip I have ever eaten that I think I can actually just pass on. (SF + 2 WPA) – 2 points+
My afternoon Power Snack ~ Fage 0% Strawberry with a nectarine~ definitely needed before heading to Costco. I have to say if you have to go to Costco or Sam’s go on Meatless Monday….every single sample had meat which made it even easier to pass up!

Are you all sitting down? You might just be shocked….after talking about Spaghetti Pizza for over a month now, I finally broke down and made it!
I didn’t exactly make it how my mom used to make and I didn’t exactly follow the recipe….
But, I definitely made a new recipe that is a keeper that will be made again for sure!
I was a little afraid when everything hit the pan that it may not turn into “pizza” since I’ve never made anything like this before…..
After the first flip, I knew the recipe was golden (no play on words intended) ~ hello Pasta Pizza!
Topped with a Basil Bow Tie according to The Husband who absolutely loved it and asked when I will be making it again. I told him I thought my photography looked like one of the Old Weight Watchers Circa de 1974 Recipes when they made you eat LIVER!….
(SF + 3 WPA) – 8 points+ per wedge – it makes 8 wedges!
The recipe is coming up tomorrow if I can find the time since we will be celebrating “Our Birthday” – our 9 year Date-i-versary….
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
Tell me one of the 1974 Weight Watchers Recipes you’d actually try eating ~ Here is the link!
