Welcome to What I Ate Wednesday, where I show a day of my eats on Weight Watchers. I am doing Simply Filling this week. This method is the less popular alternative to the tracking method. On Simply Filling I do not have to count points for any power foods I eat. I still get 49 weekly points per week to use on anything that is not a power food. So I will only note points for items that count against my weeklies. Unlimited does not mean free-for-all! I eat until I am physically full. For more on Simply Filling, see Weight Watchers’ explanation here.
For breakfast I had oatmeal, made with skim milk and 1 teaspoon of chia seed (0pp) with strawberries. I added 1pp worth of sugar to sweeten it. I also had two cups of coffee (2pp for the cream and sugar in the two cups).
For lunch I had some leftover chicken breast on a sandwich thing with spicy mustard, thin Colby jack (1pp) and kale sprouts. I also had some grapes and a spinach salad with garlic herb vinaigrette (counts for 1 of my 2 daily healthy oils allowed on SF).
Dinner was quick! We just heated up some pre-made Chicken Tortilla soup that I bought at Costco. Keepin’ it real, y’all. Because some nights I just need something easy peasy, and I’ve got no shame about that! The ingredients all looked like power foods. I did add some low fat sour cream for 1pp. I also clipped some fresh chives from my herb garden in the backyard to throw on top. It was yummy! Especially for an easy dinner.
