Happy What I Ate Wednesday. Every week I share a day of my healthy eats. I get a lot of visitors on Wednesday, so if you are new I would encourage you to check out my page for visitors and new followers. This just tells you a little bit about me, plus it navigates you to some of my favorite posts.
And now let’s move on to the eats, shall we?! For breakfast I made an egg white (1pp), thin cheddar (1pp) and avocado (1pp) sandwich on light wheat (2pp). I also had a red pear and some coffee with half and half (1pp) and sugar (1pp).
For lunch I had some pre-made cranberry walnut chicken salad. This is a Costco find, and I love it! They come in single serve packs, and they are 4pp a piece. That is really good for chicken salad! I see that they use greek yogurt in it, which has fewer points than the traditional mayo-based chicken salads. It is very tasty.
So anyway, I put the chicken salad on some light wasa crackers (1pp). To go along with it, I made a huge salad with watermelon, grapes, goat cheese (1pp) and my home-made single serving balsamic vinaigrette (1pp). I also had a few slices of cabot reduced fat cheddar (2pp).
Post lunch I had some iced coffee (1pp) which makes me feel like I am having dessert. (recycled picture) Also (not pictured) I had a square of Dove dark chocolate (1pp).
For afternoon snack I made a smoothie: banana, frozen unsweetened strawberries, blueberries, greek yogurt (1pp), coconut milk (1pp) and chia seed (1pp). I am still loving my Nutri Bullet! I use it often, and it does a great job of grinding up even tiny seeds like chia.
For dinner I made another recipe from one of my new favorite cook books, Weight Watchers What to Cook Now: 300 Recipes for Every Kitchen: mustard and herb crusted salmon (4pp for the serving size I had). It was pretty good. I served it with some asparagus roasted in olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper (1pp) and some jasmine rice (4pp).
Bonus! I got to use fresh herbs from my garden.
