Round 2, Whole30, Day 29

April 21, 2016

After working the Food Truck yesterday, I got in a three mile walk with Tucker, then came home and enjoyed my niece being here. It was a lot easier to get her moved in that we thought, which left a lot of time for chatting and getting caught up. I’m really looking forward to having a girl in the house to chat with. Sometimes asking Mike to talk to me like a girlfriend would, can get old. 

I had a menu planned for the week, and that always makes the week go smoothly. I also roasted plenty of Butternut Squash for the week, and we have used that in several meals. I ended up with a lot more leftover Chicken and Steak and salad fixin’s than I thought that I would, so we ended up eating lots of salad for dinner this week. I needed easy meals for Tuesday and Wednesday, so the leftovers came in handy, and the simple meals that I had planned, are things I can just add on to the end of the week. I won’t end up wasting any food. Yay for planning!

Tuesday Planned Meal – Turkey Burgers from the freezer. What we ate – Salad

Wednesday Planned Meal – Grilled Chicken Sausages. What we ate – Salad

The rest of the evening was super chill, and I showered and climbed into bed early.

Here are yesterday’s yummy eats…

Breakfast – 6 SP

I sautéed a few veggies, then tossed in some leftover Roasted Butternut Squash and heated through. Topped with two Eggs.

Lunch – 6 SP

Un-Pictured bites of Chicken Salad while working at the Food Truck and almost un-pictured bites of Pork with Pickles. 



Afternoon Meal – 9 SP

Dinner was going to be late, so I pulled out one of these new bars. This is a new flavor for me. I liked the flavor, but it was a bit dry? I can never decide if the 8-9 Smartpoints for one of these bars is worth it for such a small amount of food that really doesn’t fill me up. These really are best used in an emergency when your day just doesn’t go as planned, and you need something to get you by.

I’m pretty sure I buy these just to satisfy my sweet tooth.



Dinner – 12 SP

We had a little chicken and a little steak leftover. I gave Mike his choice. He wanted the Steak Salad. I made myself this yummy chicken salad. If you haven’t tried the Chopped Salad that we have come to love, and you’re a salad lover, I really think you should!

    I usually eat (or drink) my extra weekly 35. I know that not all WW members like to do that. I say…Do what works for you!

    It is hard for us to eat 30 points. We usually eat 35 points for the day.
    I buy Sara Lee Delightful bread (45 calories per slice and 1 smart point.
    Hotdog buns and hamburger buns are 2 points each bun. We get off when we eat out. Hard to stay just right.
