21 Day’s of Simple Weight Watcher Meal’s…Day 4

March 29, 2014

(Revised March 29, 2014. It was brought to my attention by a reader, (Thank you Rene!) that I was off on calculating the points for my Blueberry Pancakes. I was counting the 1/4 of Dry Oatmeal in the pancake mix as I would count 1/4 of Cooked Oatmeal. The Blueberry Pancakes are 3 PPV, not 2 PPV. Sorry about that! Still a yummy plate of food for 3 PPV!)

Thursday I got on the treadmill to run my first THREE miles in preparation for the upcoming 5K on April 12th. I ran 31 minutes straight the day before, and 30 minutes straight the day before that. I felt like I was ready! The 5K training App that I have been using on my iPhone suggest that you train only three days a week. Yesterday would have been three days in a row of “running”, which most of you know, is a fairly new activity for me. After 20 minutes of running on Thursday, I had to stop. My thighs felt thick, heavy and rubbery! Maybe that “Three Days a Week” thing is recommended for a good reason? Ya think? Anyhow, I did get in a good 20 minute run, and I walked for an additional 25 minutes, then I did a good arm workout with my weights. All in all, a good day of activity and exercise!

Dinner

I knew I was making pizza for dinner, and I had decided to try a Gluten Free Crust…..Then I made Alfredo Sauce with flour in it???? Yep. I did.

…..and top it with Alfredo Sauce, Chicken, Spinach and Mozzarella. I searched online for a healthy Alfredo Sauce and found myself at the site of the Minimalist Baker. The sauce she made was to serve over pasta, but I didn’t see any reason why it wouldn’t work for my pizza! The sauce looked easy, and I had all of the ingredients, (well, except for the pesto, and I left out the red pepper flakes) so I gave it a try. It was easy and delicious and just what I was looking for! Click HERE for her awesome Alfredo Recipe!

Two Slices of Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Caesar Salad

14 PPV

    I use a product called Better n Peanut Butter. 1 T. = 1 PointsPlus. If you click on the words “Better n Peanut Butter” in this post, you can read all about it! It used to be easy to find at Target, but I seem to be able to buy it at almost any grocery store now. It is usually found in the health food section of the grocery store. Hope this helps! 🙂

  2. How come your peanut butter is only 1pt mine is 3?
