Strawberry Fields Forever

May 17, 2017

My friend Ashil sent me a text yesterday….


I’ve never done that before!






Eight pounds later!


I got in a walk after dinner last night. My goal is 12,000 5 days a week, but I’ll take this. 


Out the door to work the food truck.

Have a great day!

Breakfast – 1 SP

1/2 Bottle of this Premier Protein added to Iced Coffee


Lunch – 5 SP

Mixed Greens, Rotisserie Chicken (3 oz), Red Onion, Cucumbers, Bell Peppers, Avocado (35g), Trader Joe’s Roasted Plantains (10) and Salsa


After I snapped my picture, I chopped it all up so the Avocado and Salsa would mix together for a tasty dressing.


Snack – 10 SP

Since lunch was low in points, I had a nice serving of Raw Walnuts (20g) and Cashews (30g) mixed with Blueberries.

If you are eating mostly fruits and veggies and lean protein and having a hard time getting in all of your SmartPoints for the day, this is a great way to get in some of those healthy fats.


Dinner – 13 SP

I was in a Salad mood yesterday!

Mixed Greens, Rotisserie Chicken (3 oz), Center Cut Bacon (1 slice), Sliced Apples, Egg, Red Onion, Cooked Sweet Potato Spirals (cooked in a little bacon fat) and Homemade Dressing from Juli over at Paleomg. The Dressing is 6 SmartPoints for 2 T. and worth every SmartPoint! In my opinion. 🙂


Snack – 2 SP

So good without anything, but I love my Nut Butter!

1 tso Nut Butter and 1 tsp Honey

Daily SmartPoints Total = 31

2017 Goals
Make time each week to Meal Plan
Drink 100 ounces of water each day
Exercise 5 days a week
Eat three meals and one snack daily
FOUR 100 Mile Walking Challenges this year!

    Oh my goodness. I REALLY like the caramel!!!

    I have bought the Trader Joe’s Creamy Almond Butter No Salt forever. Right when you open a jar and stir it, it is creamy and easy to drizzle just one teaspoon. When you get closer to the bottom of the jar, that is harder to do. I have warmed it in the microwave before and that does help.

    Now I’m hooked on the new Trader Joe’s Mix Nut Butter! It requires little stirring and is creamy and almost runny down to the bottom of the jar. Makes it easy to dip in a tsp and drizzle!

    Oh, I have readers in Arizona that are so sweet! Maybe you could meet them for me! LoL!

    You and I should meet before you move away…..

    Happy Weekend!!

  2. I’m on the iced coffee with Premier protein bandwagon, too! Finally found the Caramel at the Walmart near Stateline … tasty.

    How do you get your almonr butter to look like it’s such a big amount? Is that a teaspoon or a tablespoon, and are you microwaving it?

    Your fan from Lee’s Summit who is moving to Arizona later this summer!

    I will for sure do that again. I have the three year old Grand daughter this weekend. Maybe we go pick strawberries!!! It’s actually super close to my house. I have no idea why I’ve never dome that before.

  4. I miss fresh picked strawberries.
    Most of the fields have been turned into subdivisions.
    Is it something you’ll do again?
    Maybe take the grandkids.
