A Fruit and Nut Day

January 11, 2017

Just as I posted a blog stating that I needed to put my RXBar’s outta sight for a few days, I was running a bit behind and grabbed one of them and an apple to eat for breakfast in the car.

I was gone from 8:00 to 4:00 yesterday with no meal plan for while I was gone.

I stayed within my SmartPoints range and I still got in a full day of whole foods, it just wasn’t the best balanced day.

Oh, and I made this White Chicken Chili the other day in the crockpot. Here is the picture from the Website. Looks amazing, right?

Here is a picture of my my crockpot. It doesn’t look nearly as good, but it did have good flavor. It did call for Almond Milk, and I left that out. Maybe I’ll try this again using all of the ingredients and see what I think.

I got in a 2 mile walk outside with a friend, then took the pooches for a 1/2 mile stroll. It was a tad chilly. Do you burn more calories when you walk outside and its cold?? I feel like it’s a good possibility! I’ll tell myself “Yes”!

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 7 SP

Pumpkin Spice RXBar. Nuts…in a bar. 

Snack – 0 SP


Snack – 0 SP

I ran in Target between the meetings that I was working and I bought these to sit in the car and eat.

Black Coffee, Banana and Carrots. More fruit for the day.


Lunch – 7 SP

At 4:00, I was now home and I was starving. I decided to not let this Crockpot White Chili go to waste.

White Chicken Chili with Avocado and a few un-pictured Raw Almonds. Again, with the nuts!


Dinner – 14 SP

It was kind of late when I started cooking dinner, so I decided that I would just make Bee Burgers in the skillet and roast some Brussels Sprouts. Easy. I decided a slice of prosciutto might taste good on the burger, then it was calling for some Smashed Avocado. It still needed something, and i had plenty of points left for the day, so I topped it with an Egg.

Burger, Prosciutto, Avocado, Egg and Brussels Sprouts.

  1. Sorry for the confusion. I didn’t actually open the blog post that day.
    I get this list of blogs I follow on bloglovin’ Daily.
    I go down the list to see if I want to open any.
    This verse was pictured next to the blog title and I liked it so much I wrote it down in a notebook I keep for inspirational thoughts.
    I tend to use paper and pen more than technology.

    Was there an attachment there Nancy? I think I’m missing something?

  3. This is from bloglovin–blog 365 Days of Slow Cooking.
    This week 9 or 10??
    But can’t you use something like this as long as you use the author’s name?
    When I wrote it down I thought of you and yesterday just proved it’s true!

    I love this Nancy! Thank you, and so true. I’ll use it this week if that’s okay with you?

    Most people would of gone through a drive-through especially in winter weather–you ran into Target–that’s impressive.
