A Day of Food....8/11/12



Breakfast

Breakfast today was a smoothie. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the ingredients that I wanted/needed to make a really good smoothie but I think I did great with what I had.


Ingredients

  1 1Cup Unsweetened Frozen Mixed Berries. I used the Ingles store brand or Laura Lynn.
v  1 Weight Watcher Point.
          1 Container of Nonfat, Unsweetened Greek Yogurt. This is also the Laura Lynn brand (see a trend?) and the whole container is considered 1 serving.
v   2 Weight Watcher Points.
   1 Tablespoon of Honey. Again, Laura Lynn brand.
v  2 Weight Watcher Points.
  A splash of Vanilla Extract. This was the Dollar Store brand. See? I don’t buy JUST Laura Lynn.
v  0 Weight Watcher Points
  Ice and water. The amount you use is really your choice. I used about ½ a cup of water and about 5/6 ice cubes.
v  0 Weight Watcher Points

I just put all of this into my Magic Bullet, blended well and enjoyed!
Don’t make fun, those things are amazing. BEST. PRESENT. EVER.

This mixed berry smoothie was only 5 Weight Watcher Points for the whole glass. It tasted really good and filled me up really well. I was starting to get hungry again after a 1.5 hours but I think that’s because I didn’t put any kind of protein powder or anything to keep the “full feeling.” It’s definitely something I will tweak the recipe on and try again.


Lunch

Lunch was tuna salad on a bed of romaine lettuce, drizzled in light caser dressing and a single serving of pretzels.



Ingredients

  1/2 Cup of tomatoes. Any tomato will work.
v  0 Weight Watcher Points
   2 Slices of Onion. Again, any onion will work.
v  0 Weight Watcher Points
  1 Serving of Rold Gold Pretzels (17 Pretzels).
v  3 Weight Watcher Points
  1 ½ Serving or 3/4 a can of Bumble Bee Tuna, Chunk style, in Water.
v  3 Weight Watcher Points
  3 Leaves of Romaine Lettuce. You can use any lettuce you want but I love, love, love Romaine Lettuce.
v  0 Weight Watcher Points
   2 Servings of Breckenridge Farms Sweet Pickle Relish. You can use any brand, this is just what I had in the fridge.
v  1 Weight Watcher Point
  2 Tbsp Marzetti Refrigerated Light Cesar dressing.
v  2 Weight Watcher Points
   1/2 Cup of Cucumber.
v  0 Weight Watcher Points
  1 Tbsp Hellman’s Light Mayonnaise. I’m not a big mayo fan but this stuff is GOOD!!
v  1 Weight Watchers Point

I put the tuna, mayo, relish, tomato and onion in the magic bullet and blended it till it was real fine. I then put the lettuce on my place, topped with cucumbers, the tuna salad and then the dressing on top! With the pretzels on the side it was a great lunch. It tasted great, filled me up and only cost me 10 Weight Watcher Points. This is definitely something I’ll make again….as soon as I buy more tuna.

Dinner

Dinner was late that night….really late. My husband wrestles every other weekend. When I say wrestle I mean like what you see in WWE or TNA. Grown men, in spandex, playing pretend. Yeah….anyway, he didn’t get home till 12:30 so dinner was actually on Sunday but I counted it in with my Saturday points.

For dinner we had chicken breasts in all natural salsa & topped with mozzarella cheese.  Now, below I will show you the points for an entire 26oz jar of the salsa but I didn’t eat the entire thing by myself….I had help.   :)



Ingredients

   Chicken Breasts – Boneless/Skinless. Any brand will work as long as it is boneless and skinless.
v  6 Weight Watcher Points
  1 Jar (16oz or more. I used a 26oz jar) of All Natural Mild Chunky Salsa. You can use Medium or Hot flavors if you want but I’m not a fan of spicy food so we always use Mild in my house.
v  5 Weight Watcher Points
  1/4 Cup Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese.
v  2 Weight Watcher Points
  1 Serving of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans.
v  2 Weight Watcher Points
  1 Serving Kraft Fat Free Sour Cream. There are several brands but Kraft was on sale...I can’t pass up a sale.
v  1 Weight Watcher Point
  1 1/2 Whole Wheat Tortilla. Again, any brand is fine. I can’t even remember what brand I currently have in my fridge…
v  4 Weight Watcher Points

To make this dish; pour half the jar of salsa into a baking dish, add the chicken breasts and top them with the other half of the jar. Cook at 350F for 1 hour. When it was done, I topped each breast with 1 serving of mozzarella cheese and put back in the stove till the cheese melted. I served each breast topped with salsa from the pan and I put some sour cream on mine. I heated up the tortillas in the oven and basically used them to make little refried beans & salsa “tacos” to go with the chicken. It was a great dish, really filling and came in at a total of 17 Weight Watcher Points.







That was all I had to eat on Saturday. I drank nothing but water and had the food listed. I wasn’t starving in between meals and I used a total of 32 Weight Watcher Points which left me with 12 Weight Watcher Points left over at the end of the day. Tomorrow is my weekly weigh in and it’s also my cheat day….or as Cas calls it, “indulgence.”

For those wondering, I use Sunday as an “Indulgence Day” because that’s when we have dinner with my in-law’s and they cook some great, fatty meals.  So instead of driving myself or anyone else insane by trying to actually keep track of points or anything I just let it go for the day.

Until tomorrow….
