Healthy Day, Happy Day

July 30, 2015

I planned my food for the day a little better yesterday than I did the day before. I spread my points out throughout the day, I allowed myself to eat a delicious lunch at the food truck, I snacked smart, I ate Cake AND Ice Cream, I stayed within my 26 points and I went to Jazzercise.

Yay. Good day.

Here are yesterday’s eats…..

Pre-Breakfast – 1 PPV

Banana and  Frothy Coffee made with Vanilla Flavored Coffee, Vanilla Stevia Drops and topped with cinnamon.



Breakfast – 5 PPV

Light English Muffin with Egg Whites and 30 g Smashed Avocado, Strawberries and a Pear.



Lunch – 8 PPV

Pork Bahn Mi Bowl at the Food Truck



Snack – 3 PPV

I ate the missing 1/4 (basically, two bites) of this really rich, Cherry Filled Iced Chocolate Brownie Cake at the Food Truck. Yuuuummmmmm. Two co-workers ate their 1/4, and then I was very aware of the spare 1/4 piece sitting in the plastic container!! But I was strong!! ๐Ÿ™‚



Snack – 0 PPV

Watermelon…..Juicy, Sweet and OHHH so good!



Dinner – 7 PPV

Salad and Leftover Turkey Spaghetti over Spaghetti Squash. Possibly even better on day two! That big bowl of spaghetti is only 4 Points with Turkey, Tomatoes, Onions and Spaghetti Squash. All veggies and Turkey! I really do love this meal!



Dessert – 2 PPV

Ice Cream made from frozen banana’s.

I recently made this with 2 frozen banana’s, a splash of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk and Vanilla Flavored Stevia Drops, then topped it with Almond Butter and Granola.

Last night I made it the same way, but I added in 1 T. Unsweetened Cocoa for Chocolate Ice Cream! I left one bowl plain for 0 PointsPlus.



I topped mine with 1 tsp Almond Butter and 1 T of Granola for a very satisfying 2 PointsPlus dessert!
