Relax, Breathe, Yoga

October 13, 2014

I enjoyed a really relaxed Sunday yesterday. I had decided early in the day, that I would basically do a whole lot of….well…..absolutely nothing. So that’s pretty much what I did. Mike had a golf date and was out the door right after breakfast. I got caught up on the blog, emails, phone calls and text messages, all while curled up on the couch with a blanket and multiple cups of coffee. I didn’t get dressed until about 3:00 pm. I had decided to go to a Yoga class at 5:00, and I hadn’t ever done a class on a Sunday. It was the perfect way to end my relaxing day of doing absolutely nothing.

Here’s what I ate during my nothing doing.


Frothy Coffee





Biscuits and Gravy, Egg Whites



1 C. of Frozen Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Crumbles


Skim Milk

Salt and Pepper

Reduced Fat Buttermilk Biscuits


Cook the Sausage crumbles in the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes. Add a couple of tablespoons of water to the cooked turkey. Now place the turkey into skillet, heated over medium high heat. Add 1-2 T. of flour to the skillet. Coat the sausage well with the flour and stir. Add about 1/4 Cup of Skim milk to the skillet, and stir until it is thick and bubbly. Add more milk as needed. Salt and pepper to your taste. 

Makes Two Servings. One Serving of Sausage Gravy = 4 PointsPlus

One Reduced Fat Buttermilk Biscuit = 4 PointsPlus

One serving of Biscuits and Sausage Grave = 8 PPV

Scrambled Egg Whites = 1 PPV

    Hi Shannon!

    I’m glad you found the blog! You will notice that I try not call my Meal’s, “recipes”, but more “Ideas”. I love to play in the kitchen, but often things are accidentally delicious, and other times, well, not so great! I do try to make things simple though, and I like to share the ones that aren’t too shabby. 🙂

    Congrats to you on starting your own Weight Watcher’s Journey!

    Have a great day! Let me know what you think of the pumpkin pancakes! The pumpkin butter on top really makes these pancakes taste their best!


  2. Hey Julie! I just found your blog today while perusing pinterest for a weight watchers friendly sweet potato recipe. I just wanted to send a note of encouragement because I LOVE your blog, and your recipes, and am actually excited about cooking something this weekend (pumpkin pancakes)- which hasn’t happened in a while since beginning my own Weight Watchers journey! Anyway, that’s all for now. Keep it up- you have inspired me- who knew I could have a sausage and gravy biscuit for 8 points?? SOOOO HAPPY to have found your blog.
