Good Morning and Happy Friday!

May 27, 2016

I’m headed out the door to my WW meeting, so I’m keeping today’s post short and to the point. No time for jokes or shenanigans, but hey, maybe later!

I’ve made an effort this week to get in some extra protein, get my water in, and get caught up on my walking challenge. I am hoping to see the scale go down today when I weigh in. Having my daughter here last weekend and watching her be so diligent about what she was eating, and seeing her eager to get to her goal weight, triggered in me the desire to get back into the 160’s. 

My Walking Challenge is now right on track! Yay! (Seriously….buying new walking shoes this weekend!)


Here are yesterdays eats…

Pre-Breakfast – 1 SP

There are a lot of foods that I have not brought back into my diet on a regular basis since doing the Whole30. I feel good and I like the way that we are eating.

That being said, every once in a while, I eat or drink something that I haven’t had in a while. I really used to love my Frothy Coffee’s made with skim milk. My daughter, Tess, loves them too. While she was here this weekend, I bought some skim milk so she could have her morning coffee.

Yesterday, I had a Frothy Coffee. Creamy, sweet and yummy, for just One SmartPoint!



Breakfast – 5 SP

6 Scrambled Egg Whites, 50g Avocado, Banana, Blue Berries, 1 tsp Almond Butter



Lunch – 6 SP

Baby Pork Taco at the Food Truck, no Tortilla



Afternoon Meal – 7 SP

5 Trader Joe’s Apple Rings (3 SP), Fresh Berries, 1 tsp Almond Butter (1 SP)

Un-Pictured, 5 Additional Apple Rings (3 SP)



Dinner – 9 SP

Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice

Dinner was so easy. I stopped in Trader Joe’s and grabbed some cooked Chicken, a bag of Caulirice, Green Onions, Shredded Carrots and a small bag of peas. I sautéed the Caulirice in a little Organic Trader Joe’s Vegetable Broth, tossed in the cooked Chicken that I cubed, some diced Green Onions, Shredded Carrots, a few cooked peas, 2 Scrambled Eggs, a little salt and some Coconut Aminos (you could use Soy Sauce).

I haven’t had Peas since doing the the Whole30 back in October. They tasted great in my Chicken Fried Caulirice!

    You’re a star in my book!

    Yikes. I threw the bag away and can’t remember what it looked like. I bought it with the fresh produce (they also have a bag in the freezer, which I have bought, but have not used yet). If you are unable to find any, and you have a food processor, I have chopped up cauliflower and put it in my food processor for just a few pulses too. That actually doesn’t take as long as I thought that it was going to take.


    Hope this helps!

  3. Hi Julie,

    I am interested in the Caulirice you speak of on this post…is it the Organic Trader Giotto’s or is is the teal bag? Or neither? I am in Canada so I don’t have any Trader Joe’s here but it’s a quick trip across the line and sounds like a fantastic quick and delicious meal!

  4. Dinner looks delish! I’m on mile 65 for the walking challenge – totally not going to make 100 – but what’s the saying? “Shoot for the Moon, and at least you will land among the Stars” !! p.s. did you notice who’s now on Instagram?? =)
