Happy Friday all! Thanks for sharing all your camping must have’s on yesterdays post. It totally helped give me a few more ideas on things we needed to bring. I am pretty sure I want to go camping with all of you now though ~ the foods you all make – YUM!
We are all packed up and ready to head out for our first camping trip ever with my Sis and her family. I actually grew up part of a camping family since my parents were part of the Jeep Club. We literally went camping practically every weekend in the summer and all throughout the year. “Hard Core” camping that wasn’t at a camp ground~ the kind you probably don’t mind as a kid where they do not have showers or bathrooms, but, as an adult, I am not so sure I could hang with it.
When The Husband and I were chatting about this last night, I didn’t realize that I have not been camping as an adult. We are going to a super cool camp ground where we will be whipping up a whole lot of delicious Simply Filling Food and have biking/hiking trips planned to celebrate my nephews birthday.
My Sis gave him a choice of having a party for his 5h birthday or going camping ~ he picked camping and bike riding with his Aunt & Uncle ~ so away we go! So cute!
Since I knew we were heading out to camp, our fridge had slim pickin’s. We did not have any eggs left so I made a hardboiled EggWich.
Topped with a Morning Star Maple Veggie Sausage. I have been missing these all month long.
Sprayed with a little ICBINB Spray, sea salt & black pepper ~ definitely not the same as having a fried egg, but, not bad. (SF) – 7 points+
Lunch revolved around these Don Lee Farms Vegan Veggie Patties. I buy them occasionally at Costco and I absolutely love them. They taste just like a delicious Egg Roll – I know it sounds funny but they really do.
All the ingredients are Simply Filling with the exception of the Brown Rice Flour and Rice Starch. It is interesting to me to see which Veggie Burgers fall into Simply Filling and which do not. I do not think there is enough of the flour/starch to add too many points+/WPA for these.
4 points+ per burger!
I started off with my Salad Mix Blend….
Then topped it with a Veggie Burger, 1 Tbsp Sunflower Seeds and 2 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Low-Fat Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette. (SF+3 WPA) – 7 points+
This salad was so good, I was sad when it was gone
I really pondered participating in our Ice Cream Social this week or sticking with my afternoon snack. After checking out the Sundae Bar, I decided I could totally do it.
In my cup ~ 1 banana plus 1/2 cup fresh pineapple, topped with about 1/4 cup vanilla/strawberry ice cream 1 Tbsp Whipped Cream, sprinkle of toasted coconut and marshmallows.
Fruit + ice cream + coconut in every single bite! (SF+3 WPA) – 3 points+
We spent last night running around getting all our last minute camping items together, whipping up Pasta Salad and green salads. To save on time and dishes to wash, we headed over to Panera for dinner.
1/2 BBQ Chicken Salad
Chicken, romaine lettuce, roasted corn, black beans, tortilla strips & BBQ sauce for my dressing.
French Onion Soup
Plus an apple as my side…..over chips or BREAD!
The REALLY cool thing about Panera aside from being absolutely delicious, fresh and good for you….you can plug in your meal in their online nutritional calculator to determine the nutrition to calc the points+. My entire meal was Simply Filling (SF + 3 WPA) – 8 points+.
- 3,053 calories burned
- 10,053 steps taken
- 9 WPA used, 24 WPA remaining (25 daily points+)
I am not sure if I’ll be back tomorrow since we will be out in the “wild” ~ if not, then, a full recap of all our camping fun will be coming up on Sunday.
Have a fantastic weekend all!
