Happy Monday all! I can admit it, I can easily be convinced to get up earlier when there is a FREE Dirty Latte involved The Husband had to be up and out of the house early this morning, but, offered to buy me a drink if I brought him one too….
Ummm, OK! I got my usual ~ Grande FF decaf latte with 1 pump of chocolate (4 points+). I have pretty much decided this is the PERFECT start to a Monday ~ Christmas cups STILL in January
I wasn’t really “feeling” like anything for breakfast so I opted for a simple Yogurt Bowl.
* 1 container Chobani Vanilla 0% Greek Yogurt
* Handful Blueberries
* 3 Roasted Walnuts Crumbled
The roasted walnuts totally made this taste like banana cream pie….I am totally adding them to the mix more often. (4 points+)
I am honestly LOVING the Spring Like weather we are having lately ~ it was almost 70 degrees today. My workout today was an awesome 50 minute walk outside in the sunshine…rockin’ out to Slacker Radio. I probably should’ve had a snack before I left though because I was STARVING by the time I got back.
It might’ve been though because I was DREAMING about this delicious sandwich I had planned with this NEW Trader Joe’s HOT & SWEET Mustard.
This is by far my favorite type of mustard ~ I LOVE that there is NO HFC and it’s 0 points+
Simple, yet delicious Ham & Sharp Cheddar Sandwich on Trader Joe’s FF Multi-Grain Bread topped a little heat & a little sweet cut in 1/2 diagonally (5 points+)
My Spicy Peanut Broccoli Slaw doesn’t look pretty, but, it’s so good and easy to make.
1 1’/2 cups Trader Joe’s Organic Broccoli Slaw Mix
1 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette
Crushed red pepper flakes b/c I was trying to make it have some color
1 Points+ ~ crunchy, peanutty, delicious!
Cherries!!!! Yup, from Trader Joe’s too.
Mid afternoon treats included a little Biscoff! 2 cookies & 1 Tbsp Biscoff Spread (which by the way, tastes EXACTLY like the cookies) (4 points+).
The Husband has been requested a Summer BBQ meal for the past week or so. I marinated some New York Strip Steaks in Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki over night and grilled them up today.
My portion 3 ounces cooked (4 points+) ~ his portion, the remaining 2 lbs LOL.
Homemade Potato Salad! (1/2 cup – 3 points+)
BIG salad with 1/8 AVOCADO, cherry tomatoes and topped with Newman’s Light Lime Vinaigrette (2 points+).
I am pretty sure I made his not so great day a little better with this Steak n ‘Potatoes” dinner.
I WISH I knew the secret to days like today where I haven’t used all my points+ and I am not hungry at all. I know I still have points+ left, but, as of now, I am content and do not planning on using them unless my body tells me I am hungry. No worries, I am sure I will be making up for them tomorrow when my stomach realizes it missed out
Are you a mustard, ketchup or mayo person?
I absolutely 100% am a mustard girl ~ the fancier the better (Hot & Sweet Rocks, but, I LOVE Jalapeno, Dijon, flavored mustards) on my sandwiches. Ketchup is my favorite thing to dip in aside from BBQ sauce. Mayo….eh, not really ~ I’d rather have good MUSTARD or AVOCADO any day.
It’s Scandalous Bachelor Night, but, I STILL cannot decide if I want to watch or not….Maybe, I’ll just turn it on and see……. ‘)
Tomorrow is girls night out so my post might be up late or up on Wednesday morning.
