Happy What I Ate Wednesday, y’all! Today I share a sample day of my healthy eats, complete with Weight Watchers PointsPlus.
For breakfast I had two eggs (4pp) scrambled with some turkey sausage (1pp), mushrooms, red peppers, spinach and mozzarella (1pp). I also had some grapes and two cups of coffee with half and half (1pp for the two cups). I am experimenting with leaving out the sugar. Not bad.
I had a conference call that was going to make my lunch later, so I had a half-sized protein shake as a snack (2pp).
For lunch I made a grilled ham (2pp) and 2% provolone (1pp) sandwich on light wheat (2pp). On the side I had veggies dipped in my homemade roasted garlic hummus (2pp) and a side salad with my homemade balsamic vinaigrette (1pp).
Now that lunch is an example of how I volumize with veggies. The salad and veggies took up over half of my plate and were zero PointsPlus. The only points were for the dressing and the hummus. Compare that to a small serving of chips for the same points. Honestly some days I want the chips, but most days I will choose the veggies. YUM!
For snack I had some wasa crackers (1pp) with two wedges of laughing cow light swiss (1pp) and a banana. It was raining by this point so my natural light was gone. Can you see the difference in photo quality?
For dinner I had some Skinnytaste Chicken and Lentil soup (5pp) with reduced fat sour cream (1pp) and corn bread (3pp). The soup was leftover out of the freezer. This one passed the freezer test with flying colors, y’all.
Do you volumize your food? What is your favorite healthy side item?
