Happy What I Ate Wednesday y’all! I look forward to Wednesdays every week because it is so fun to see what people eat!
If you don’t know much about me, I have been doing Weight Watchers since October and have lost over 30 pounds. I especially love focusing on enjoying real food as much as possible. I am most definitely not perfect, but I try to lean to healthier side more often than not. If you are new I would encourage you to check out my backstory and my page for new followers. Now, on to the food!
Breakfast was old fashioned oats (2pp) cooked in a mixture of almond milk (0pp for a third of a cup) and water. I added a little vanilla extract, salt and chia (0pp for a teaspoon) as well. I topped it with some sugar (1pp), blueberries and peaches. I also have two large cups of coffee every morning with sugar and half and half (2pp for the two cups).
Because I am a telecommuter, and my coworkers all work in different time zones…sometimes I have to be flexible with when I eat lunch. On this day I made a green smoothie in my Nutribullet to help me make it to lunch. It had kale, banana, frozen unsweetened pineapple, Greek yogurt (1pp), chia seed (1pp), almond milk (1pp) and Amazing Grass. If you have followed me for a while you know that I often add chia seed to both oatmeal and smoothies. I have been experimenting with more smoothie add-ins, like these powdered greens.
For lunch I had a flatout wrap (2pp) with light veggie cream cheese (1pp), leftover chicken breast (2pp), thin Colby jack (1pp) and kale sprouts. I served it with a pickle and some of my Mediterranean Farro and Vegetable Salad (4pp).
I followed lunch with my usual iced coffee (1pp). You CAN use skim, but adding a little whole milk instead just makes is taste SO much better. And since it is the same points, and we always keep whole milk on hand for my son, it’s pretty much a no-brainer.
And for dinner I made tacos for my husband. I made mine a pile-on with greens, tomatoes, brown rice (4pp), seasoned lean ground beef (4pp), reduced fat chedder (1pp) and reduced fat sour cream (1pp).
