Hello friends! Welcome to What I Ate Wednesday, where I share a sample day of my (mostly) healthy eats. Thanks to Jenn for hosting!
If you are new, there are a few things that might help you get to know me:
I currently follow Weight Watchers, so I include PointsPlus with my WIAW posts. My daily points allowance is 30 PointsPlus, FYI. I ended up using some extra (weekly) points on this particular day. Probably because of all the snacking!
Some days I just tend to graze all day, and this day was definitely an example of that.
Breakfast was a bowl of oatmeal (2pp for 1/3 cup) with a little chia seed (0pp for a teaspoon), cinnamon, vanilla and maple syrup (1pp). My son rejected his morning banana, so I sliced it up and put it on top.
Side note for mamas of littles: does it KILL you how much food you throw away with a toddler?!?! It does me! I hate to waste.
I also had two cups of coffee with real half and half (1pp).
A couple hours later I had an egg (2pp) with some sriracha. It sounds strange, but don’t knock it ’til you try it! I guess this egg-for-snack habit carried over from my Simply Filling week last week.
I got busy at work, and lunch was really late. I decided to make some spaghetti squash to eat our leftover spaghetti sauce with.
I got impatient because (1) I was HUNGRY and (2) spaghetti squash seems like it takes for. EVER. to cook, even in the microwave. Especially when I was ready to eat, like…and HOUR before I actually did. So I ate a serving of these Late July chips while it was cooking (3pp and worth it!).
And then I ate the spaghetti squash with the meat sauce (5pp) and a little parmesan (1pp). I had a side salad with mozzarella (1pp) and my homemade balsamic vinaigrette (1pp).
And then I had iced coffee (1pp) and a dove dark chocolate (1pp).
The snacking continued right into the afternoon. I had a mini wheat bagel (3pp) with a little natural peanut butter (3pp) and a clementine.
For dinner, I took some chicken spaghetti (8pp)out of the freezer. Since we were out of town all weekend, and I did not have time to get to the store, I was VERY thankful for that freezer meal. (Recycled Picture)
I made bread for my guys, but I passed on it (<- shocking, I know!).
Do you make freezer meals? If so, what are your go-to freezer meals?
Do you eat off your toddler’s plate?
