Today I am sharing a sample day of my healthy eats from doing Weight Watchers. I hope this helps give you some great ideas and inspiration!

Now for the food!
For breakfast, I am loving sandwiches right now. Egg whites are a great source of protein and they really are a blank slate. You can layer so many different flavors around them. On this day I had a little avocado (1pp), some mozzarella cheese (1pp), pourable egg whites (1pp) and a home grown tomato on light wheat toast (2pp). I always have two cups of coffee with a tablespoon of half-and-half, plus a little sugar (2pp for the two cups). I paired that up with a bowl of fruit. I also took my Vitalizer strip (still loving those…thanks Brittany!)
For lunch I grabber a premade chicken salad from Costco (4pp) with some wasa crackers (1pp for three). But the star of the show had to be my side salad, which I piled high with diced red peppers, more home-grown tomatoes, goat cheese (1pp), chickpeas (2pp) and my homemade 1pp balsamic vinaigrette. YUM!
Post lunch dessert was my iced coffee (1pp) and a dove dark chocolate promise (1pp).
For snack I had a flatout light wrap (2pp) spread with some chocolate flavored PB2 (1pp), wrapped around a banana.
Dinner was some stovetop garlic parmesan cheese grits (3pp), topped with baked shrimp and scallops (3pp). We had broccoli on the side, and I split a piece of corn bread with my toddler (2pp).
Not pictured: A couple hours after dinner, I started to feel hungry, so I ate a tablespoon of almond butter straight out of the jar (3pp).
I ended up eating all my daily allowance, plus a few weeklies (extra). I had earned 3pp activity points that day, so I didn’t feel too bad about using some extras.
