Happy Friday EVE all! I finally decided to get off the LAZY train today and get in a good workout when I got home from the Farmer’s Market. I don’t know what it is, but, lately I have had ZERO motivation to workout….not even to walk which is something I usually ALWAYS do at lunch.
Maybe it’s Spring Fever from exercise?! LOL….I am not sure, but, I am proud that I hopped on the treadmill for a power hills workout that reminded me I haven’t exercised consistently in a long time.
I feel accomplished today because I did everything I set out to do and had some delicious eats along the way.
Breakfast involved another of my FAVORITE Tortillas I pick up at the Farmer’s Market ~ Jalapeño Salsa! They are thick and chewy.
1 Jalapeño Salsa Tortilla (3 pts)
2 Tbsp Spicy Black Bean Chipotle Hummus with Harissa (1 pt)
1/2 c Egg Beaters (1 pt)
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
For those wondering….I cook my eggs in a bowl sprayed with nonstick spray for 1 minute. Breakfast takes like 5 minutes max to make.
Spicy, creamy, chewy, GOOD!
My breakfast kept me FULL for 6 hours – CRAZY, but, cool!
Today, I had one of my FAVORITE things ~ I LOVE Chinese Food especially when it’s healthier like Panda Express.
usually check out their online nutritionals and pick the lowest calorie/fat options. My FAVORITE is the string bean chicken which is only 3 points!
Plus a side of Broccoli Beef (another 3 points!)
Then, I get the steamed mixed veggies instead of the rice or chow mein for 1 points.
Not too bad for a 7 POINT (375 calorie) lunch and it’s loaded with VEGGIE-goodness.
There is something about the salty spicy goodness of Chinese food that makes me WANT sweets. I had picked up these Mini Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies from Trader Joes for The Husband today….however, I busted open the container.
150 cal, 7 g fat, 1 g fiber ~ 3 points for 5 cookies…if you eat just 5, that is…..Ya, I have 5 plus a couple more and a couple more and…..(5 points in mini cookies) :/ Should’ve left them in the car 😉
I LOVE Thursdays because it’s FARMERS MARKET DAY!!!!
$5 for all these of these ~ organic mixed greens, organic arugula, organic broccoli!
More of my FAVORITE CORN tortillas because I am going to make that juicy, spicy Mexican chicken this weekend so I can have my favorite TACOS!
Then, I came across the COOLEST table I’ve ever seen at the Farmer’s Market. I say that because of what this table represented!
Champions for Change have one mission to help kids eat more fruits and vegetables!!!
They are encouraging families to make healthy changes in their kitchens, homes, schools, and neighborhoods in simple ways:
Inside the bag was an AWESOME FREE COOKBOOK!
Loaded with recipes!
I completely want to make them all including these Black Bean, Corn and AVOCADO pitas!
There were also other fun handouts to give you ideas on how to use some in season produce and a cool how much activity should you get at any age calculator.
SO COOL! I LOVE that people are taking action and I LOVE this cause ~ no they didn’t pay me to post about it or even know I am….I post because I believe we are all the BEST examples for our families and friends.
——> Putting my soap box away now 🙂
Dinner was all about using the Farmer’s Market Finds I got and it involved this cool sauce that we picked up at the the Saturday Farmer’s Market last week.
Crazy chunkiness…..When we sampled it, I didn’t remember this part.
So….I whipped up a little in my Magic Bullet to get it into a not so pretty saucy consistency.
I grilled up 2 organic chicken breasts with sea salt and black pepper.
Then, during the last 5 minutes brushed the sauce and flipped them about 2-3 times.
This is the 7 point salad I was dreaming of ALL day…..
Organic Mixed greens & Arugula
Mini Bell Peppers
Organic Cherry Tomatoes
4 oz Grilled Balsamic tasting chicken
I LOVE salads that include these little fresh mozzarella balls 🙂
As much as I LOVED my salad, I was STILL hungry.l I drank water and waited an hour but I am HUNGRY. So, I decided to try these new to me Ozery Cranberry Orange Breakfast Pitas I picked up at Whole Foods today.
Have you all ever seen these? They have a bunch of flavors…the ingredient list is long, but, it’s mainly vitamins which I found interesting.
3 points for one – not too bad!
Canada Readers….they are made in Toronto, ON ~ cool!!!
Toasted with ICBINB Spray. I really like them ` they are sorta like an English muffin, but, doughy/chewy like a bagel. I didn’t taste any orange, but, there are tons of cranberries.
