I’m taking my niece out for dinner for her 18th Birthday! She picked pasta! I plan on a Caesar (dressing on the side, duh) no croutons, with grilled chicken. So I thought I’d fill up on a little something I really do enjoy. 1 cup of blueberries, 1/3 cup of WW Vanilla non-fat yogurt, topped with 1/4 cup of kashi!

I have a lot of favorite breakfast foods, and this is certainly one of them! Easy and delicious. I like the steel cut oats, and I like the Quaker quick cooking oats, but sometimes I’m in a hurry and go for quick and tasty. This is a bowl of Quaker Instant Oatmeal (cinnamon and brown sugar), topped with half of a chopped apple that I had previously topped with cinnamon and put in the microwave for one minute. The other half of the apple I dipped in 1 T. of Better N Peanut Butter. The oatmeal was 4 PPV and the Peanut Butter was 1 PPV. And of course, the apple was ZERO!
This is SUPER easy. Place frozen chicken breast in the crock pot and top with a jar of your favorite salsa and your favorite taco seasoning. Let it cook all day, and then shred. Make soft taco’s in a high fiber tortilla, or taco salad, or a tostado, or snack on some nacho’s made with your favorite baked chips! The possibilities are endless!
Last night for dinner, I topped a bed of shredded lettuce, added some cheddar cheese, a few chopped up cherry tomatoes (there buried in there somewhere), and a little sour cream!
I also like to eat this with lots of chopped up bell peppers, onions, even cucumbers to really bulk it up. It’s great with a few baked tostitos crushed on top too! But I ate what I had in the fridge and pantry tonight and was completely satisfied.
We ordered Chinese last night, which really isn’t my favorite and I rarely eat, but the hubby loves it, so once in a while I give in. I ordered Chicken and Broccoli in Black bean sauce, and I always pass on the rice. I ate half and saved the leftovers for lunch today. It’s hard to calculate the points on this not really knowing exactly how it is prepared, but I have read that black bean sauce is one of the healthier options, and I do like the taste! I counted this lunch today as 8 PPV.
I really need a change. I’ve been stuck in the 170’s for so long, that I got tired of blogging about it. I really don’t want to quit the blog, because I know I’m not going to quit the weight loss journey, but my story has become boring. I get bored really easy. So I have this great idea this morning that I will blog what I eat, and post a picture of it, and it’s Weight Watcher’s Points Plus Values. Well, can you believe that I have been sitting here for an hour trying to upload the photo’s of breakfast and lunch??
