Happy WIAW! I share a day of my Weight Watchers eats each and every Wednesday here on the blog. If you want to see my WIAW history/archives, click here. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I got a Nutri Bullet this past weekend. I have had so much fun playing with my new toy. I have been wanting a Vitamix 5200s for a really long time (and still do!). A big reason is because I have started including greens and seeds in my smoothies. And my old blender just wasn’t grinding them up as fine as I would like.
So when Costco put the Nutri Bullet on special, it turned out to be about one fifth of the price of the Vitamix 5200s. So I took a chance and picked one up. I have very much enjoyed it so far! For breakfast I made a smoothie with kale, pineapple, banana, skim milk (1pp), Greek yogurt (1pp), and chia seed (1pp). I also added a little bit of water for consistency. It was SO yummy! That filled me up for several hours. I still had my two cups of coffee with sugar and half and half (2pp for the two cups). About mid morning I started to get hungry again, so I had a hardboiled egg (2pp). For lunch I had tuna salad (3pp) on light wheat (2pp) with thin cheddar (1pp). I had a side salad with single serving balsamic vinaigrette (1pp). I also had baked scoops (3pp) with some salsa. For snack I did something a little bit different – I made oatmeal! But it was not just any oatmeal. I made peanut butter oatmeal with chocolate chip topping. It was crazy good! Here is the recipe so that you can enjoy it too! Mix the following in a microwave safe bowl, and cook on high for 2 minutes, 30 seconds (Microwave times may vary! Watch out for boiling over.):
- 1/3 cup old fashioned oats (2pp)
- 2/3 cup skim milk (1pp)
- 2 tablespoons of Bell Plantation PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter and PB2 (1pp)
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 1 teaspoon chia seed (optional – 0pp for the serving size)
- 2 teaspoons of sugar (1pp)
Let it sit in the microwave for 5-10 minutes to thicken. Stir, and top with 10 grams of mini chocolate chips (1pp). I weighed this out on my Ozeri Digital Food Scale to make sure I tracked accurately. This was a 6pp snack, and I usually do not spend so many points on a snack. But I had a dinner planned that was on the lighter side, so it worked out. It would also make a great breakfast!
So for dinner I tried a new recipe – Skinnytaste Chicken Enchilada Soup. It was great! And only 7pp!
