Yesterday, I filled my day with things that make me happy, and avoided most of my “to do” list.
I slept in (stupid time change), then I had coffee on the deck.
I soaked up some late morning rays with my little Tucker man. He loves a nap in the sun. That’s some Doggie Bliss right there.
I experimented with some sweet potatoes and zucchini for breakfast cakes.
After writing my blog post, Sugar is the Devil, Tucker and I took an hour walk. A walk on a beautiful day is a great way to clear your head of negative vibes and fill it up with positive vibes.
After doing just a few of my “to do’s”, I grilled out some Chicken and Asparagus and soaked up some more sunshine, all while listening to Bob Seger, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Elton John, the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and a few other of my favorite oldies but goodies. Those oldies always seem to make me happy.
I grabbed these mini peppers and grilled them too, although I don’t know how I’ll eat them yet. They literally popped open on the grill and smelled so good!
I didn’t drink beer or wine, but I had this La Croix instead. It was fine.
As the sun began to set and the temp dropped, I grilled a pear and had a cup of coffee on the deck while waiting on the hubs to get home from work.
Yesterday was a success. Today will be too.
Here are yesterday’s eats…
Breakfast – 10 SP
I was playing in the kitchen a bit.
1 C of shredded Sweet Potato, 1 C of Shredded Zucchini, 1 Egg, Seasonings to taste. I added Cumin, Chili Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder. I added Olive Oil to the skillet and fried these up. Not too shabby. I counted Breakfast as 10 SmartPoints because I fried these in Oil.
Lunch – 5 SP
After making my breakfast, I still had plenty of ingredients left, and I was curious how well these would fry up if I only put Cooking Spray in the skillet instead of Olive Oil. They were not as crispy, but I will try these again and post a recipe if I decide they are worthy.
Snack – 2 SP
Leftover Chicken, Cauliflower Rice, Broccoli and Butternut Squash.
Snack – 1 SP
I didn’t have any Pineapple or Peaches, and I thought…Why not a pear? I put a spritz of Olive Oil on it, sprinkled it with cinnamon and put it on the grill for just a few minutes. I drizzled 1/4 tsp of honey on it, and made a fresh cup of coffee. This tasted much better than I expected. I hope I have some ripe pears on hand the next time I grill out!
Dinner – 9 SP
Salad with mixed Greens, Grilled Chicken (4 oz), Boiled White Potato (50 g), Grilled Asparagus, Red Onion, Bacon (10 g) with 2 T. of Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing.
