Happy Biggest Loser day all! Biggest Loser is seriously my favorite show of all time ~ watching it is total contentment and total inspiration all in one….LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it, but, um, maybe you all already knew that?! 😀
My post is going to be F-A-S-T so I can get back to “The Show”!
Breakfast today was entirely centered around my Mock Iced DIRTY Latte!!!
1 c Decaf Starbuck’s House Blend
1 c Fat Free Milk
2 tsp Midnight MOO Chocolate Syrup
1 c ICE
2 points of deliciousness!!!!
I added an egg for a little filling protein boost (2 pts).
Plus a MOUND of Cantaloupe & Watermelon (1 pt).
I was pretty much starving by mid morning which I sorta knew would happen. So, I whipped up a batch of Mock Kettle Korn – 5 c 94% FF Butter Popcorn with a 1 tsp Agave Drizzle (1 point). Crunchy, salty/sweet and SATISFYING!
Believe it or not, I actually brought stuff to make a GREAT chicken salad with last night’s leftovers, but, I went with what I was CRAVING ~ a lunch just like YESTERDAY!
My absolute FAVORITE TJ’s Frozen Meal of all time ~ it’s natural, it’s spicy, it is ONLY 5 points for the entire bowl.
I admit it looks pretty nasty when it comes out of the container and their tofu is like little sponges.
But, the FLAVOR is AMAZING ~ spicy, sesame, soy, SOBA Noodles…
On top of a HUGE pile of Broccoli Hay (steamed Broccoli Slaw)
When you add the broccoli slaw it makes this 2 CUP bowl FULL and it makes you FEEL like you are getting this HUGE BOWL of PASTA!!!
Topped with Sriracha…..MMMM, I could possibly eat this EVERY DAY!
We had a HEALTHY CHOCOLATE BANANA ICE CREAM SOCIAL today 😀
1/2 frozen banana
1 Tbsp Chocolate Almond Milk
Whipped up in my MINI CHOPPER
Topped with TJ’s Midnight MOO, Mini Dark Chocolate Chips, whipped cream and sprinkles!
The SPRINKLES totally made it ~ this is the BEST ICE CREAM YET (3 pts)
I snacked on a mini Babybel Light cheese on my way home since I knew dinner would be late(1 pt).
I had the BEST package waiting for me when I got home ~ My TWO Ellie Krieger Cookbooks that I got pretty much FREE with my Gift Card from SpringPadIt!
Ummm…Yup, I LOVE them as much as I thought and I literally made myself STARVING for dinner by flipping through ALL the pages while watching Food Network.
On the Menu ~ SouthWestern Hash!
You start off by par-cooking the potatoes and boiling them for 8 minutes, then, draining and drying them. This works perfect if you are “FRYING” your potatoes in oil 😉
While the potatoes cooked, I chopped up the veggies and drained/rinsed the beans.
After sautéing the onions & peppers, I added the potatoes with the aromatics (garlic, cumin, chili powder, oregano).
Then, added the chopped tomatoes and beans. In hindsight, I think I would’ve FRIED the potatoes, peppers and onions together then added the aromatics, tomatoes and beans.
I cooked up some scrambled eggs for The Husband but didn’t want any. After seeing his though, I WANTED some and stole a little. I topped my hash with cilantro and chives.
Then, added ketchup on the hash only (not my eggs like The Husband – WEIRD!)
Overall, I thought this recipe was just OK and probably wouldn’t make it again. It sounded so good and I LOVE potatoes with a South Western Flair.
I think that maybe I’d use Homemade Taco Seasoning and “Fry” the potatoes with the onions & peppers to make it more like hash. My bowl was 6 points.
Dessert was my FAVORITE ChocoLOVE (2 pts for 4 squares).
Get ready for a SUPER COOL GIVEAWAY tomorrow 😀
The Last Chance workout is calling my name ~ I can’t wait to see who goes home!
