Can you tell he picked the titled?! ONLY 1 more day and the weekend is here ~ YES!!!! Some weeks, I honestly cannot wait to get to the weekend. Not that we have fancy plans or anything, but, I started my countdown to the weekend on Monday so it’s been a LONG wait this week
I think how you all deal with your BAD DAYS is awesome ~ It is nice to know that you all can relate and now I have some healthy new things to try the next time instead of diving into the chocolate, cookies and wine.
This morning I couldn’t wait to dig into one of the Baked Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cups that I made from the Green Lite Bites Cookbook.
Each muffin is only 3 points+ and they are pretty tasty. Dense, moist with just the right sweetness from the bananas and chocolate chips.
I made up a “fruit salad” on the side.
My 3 Point+ breakfast kept me full for 5 hours!
I finally had the chance to get out for a nice long lunchtime walk today to enjoy the sunshine. It was so nice outside that I really didn’t want to come back inside to work. I can say that my main motivator for coming back was the delicious food I had waiting.
1 1/2 servings of Chicken Cilantro Potsticker & Veggie Soup (6 points+)
Side of Spicy Asian Peanut Slaw ~ I top Organic Broccoli Slaw and Carrots with 1 Tbsp of Trader Joe’s Low-fat Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette & some crushed red pepper flakes (1 point+).
All week long my co-worker and I have been planning to head over to Over The Top Shop because they BANANA FROYO back!
I am completely IN LOVE with Banana Froyo topped with caramel, sprinkles and a little “love”. 1 cup Froyo with 2 Tbsp Caramel & 1 Tbsp Sprinkles = 8 points+ and totally worth every single bite of it!
The Husband picked dinner tonight because he has been wanting to have this Bill Bailey’s Carne Asada.
I honestly prefer to marinate and grill my own meats, but, I LOVE the stats of Bill Bailey’s and that it cooks up in 15 minutes….it’s perfect when you need to have quick dinner.
4 ounces = 5 points+
4 ounces is a nice size serving…..I grill it so there isn’t a pan to wash.
Add a dab of WHOLLY GUACAMOLE ~ 2 points+
Plus CRUNCH! I LOVE Tostito’s Hint of Lime Tortilla Chips ~ 1 oz for 4 points+
My “dressing” was this new Trader Joe’s Serrano Salsa Fresca.
Don’t worry, it sounds spicy, but, it’s not at all ~ it’s delicious!
All together my Carne Asada salad with 1 oz of LF Sharp Cheddar, tons of veggies, salsa and chips came up to 13 points+.
NEW AT FRIENDS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
* New Featured Recipe of the Week ~ Simple, Low Point+ French Toast
What is one thing that you eat REGARDLESS that you think is 110% worth the calories, points+, etc?
For me honestly ~ it’s ice cream, frozen yogurt, caramel, good chocolate and CHIPS! I know, that’s more than one thing, but, I couldn’t pick just one
Just 1 MORE DAY!!!! The BEST part about tomorrow ~ I am having lunch with THIS SUPER COOL WEIGHT WATCHER STAR!!!
