Happy Wednesday all! I think one of the hardest things about coming back from vacation is getting back into your groove again. I did set myself up for success by making sure I headed out to the grocery store last night to restock our fridge with healthy eats and planned out a couple of dinners to get us through the week. Now to stick to the plan ~ one meal/snack at a time….
I love February around here because it means that the organic berries in the market start looking really great. The one thing I couldn’t wait to have this morning was a bowl of banana and berries.
1/2 banana + 4 berries
The one thing he couldn’t wait to have now that we are back home….any guesses?? lol
Scrambled eggs 2 eggs seasoned with sea salt, black pepper & hot sauce (SF) – 4 points+
I was also pretty excited to find nectarines at our market too ~ they are totally crunchy like apples but they actually have a pretty good flavor ~ paired with a Sargento Lite String Cheese.
(SF) – 1 points+
I didn’t really plan out any special lunches to make this week so I went with what was easy.
I grabbed a bowl of my Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup from the freezer. (SF) – 5 points+
Paired with a simple salad topped with 1 Tbsp. Newman’s Lite Lime Vinaigrette.
(SF + 1 WPA) – 1 points+
Nothing fancy at all, but, totally delicious and it definitely hit the spot.
Mid afternoon my co-worker invited me to take a walk for coffee which I gladly accepted.
Grande Nonfat Iced Latte with Caramel Drizzled on top. (SF) – 3 points+
When I walked in the door, The Husband asked me if I wanted to have BLTA’s or Panda Express’s Fire Cracker Chicken before it’s gone for the year.
It was definitely a tough choice ~ bacon or my favorite chicken….since you can only get Fire Cracker Chicken (and it means no cooking!), off to Panda we went!
I am so IN LOVE with this chicken ~ it’s everything I want ~ spicy, salty, sweet and just so dang good. (SF) – 5 points+
Paired with String Bean Chicken (SF) – 4 points+
And two healthy sides ~ 1/2 brown rice and 1/2 steamed veggies. (SF) – 5 points+
YUM! I could totally eat this same thing all over again tomorrow.
Have I ever told you all that I absolutely love Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs? They have the perfect combination of Peanut Butter to Chocolate….I have to say the Hearts come in a close second, but, the eggs are my all time favorite.
I finished the night splitting this 2 pack (built in portion control!) with The Husband.
Reese’s heart = (SF + 5 WPA) – 5 points+ of chocolately peanut butter goodness!
