Welcome! Today and every Wednesday I share a Weight Watchers sample day of eats. If you are new I would encourage you to check out my page for new followers to help you see what A Pinch of Healthy is all about.
Now on to the food! These eats are from Monday, which was right after we got home from Destin, FL. I had not made it to the store by breakfast time, so I used some frozen unsweetened strawberries, a frozen banana, some dark chocolate Tera’s Whey Organic Whey Protein (3pp for two scoops) and almond milk (1pp) to make a breakfast shake. Yum!
Also (not pictured) I had two cups of coffee with sugar and half-and-half (2pp for the two cups).
I was able to make it to the grocery store on my lunch break to re-stock our fridge and pantry with lots of healthy eats.
If you are interested you can see the full grocery haul video at the end of this post, FYI.
I had enough time to make myself a salad to eat at my desk. Usually I like meat on my salad, but seeing as how I did not have any leftover meat in my fridge (after being out of town), I opted for some chickpeas (3pp), goat cheese (2pp), a hard boiled egg (2pp), red peppers, homegrown golden tomatoes and my homemade balsamic vinaigrette (2pp) over mixed greens. It was surprisingly filling and delish!
Side note – I am not vegetarian, nor to I plan to become one. But! I am interested in incorporating more meatless meals into my diet for a couple of reasons: (1) So I can afford better quality/ organic meats and (2) to cram in more veggies and plant-based proteins.
I was pretty hungry by the time mid afternoon rolled around. So I got out a wheat bagel thin (3pp), and I mixed up some PB2 (1pp) and added a sliced banana. I had a glass of unsweetened almond milk with it (1pp).
For dinner I made pork roast in the crock pot (4pp) with Annie’s maple BBQ sauce (1pp). We also had a baked potato (3pp) with a little Kerrygold grass-fed butter (1pp) and some green beans. I split that piece of corn bread you see with my toddler (2pp for my half).

Are you a vegetarian? Have you experimented with any meatless meals?
