Less is More

by DanicasDaily on February 25, 2014

Happy Tuesday all! I actually didn’t buy that basket at Home Goods that The Husband used for a hat on my last post.  Although, I probably should’ve just for the on-going entertainment lol.  The goal of my post today is to try “Less is More” and let my pictures do the talking.  I am always envious of those who can get there point across with just a picture and  sentence or two.  I know I tend to ramble on a bunch as sometimes I just have to share the story with each snap shot…but, tonight….it’s two days of eats, one sentence per picture and a test to ummm, see if I can be less wordy. 

ready, set, go….(see that’s one sentence!)

Yesterday started with one of my favorite new things 3 Ingredient Banana Pancakes

IMG_0173

So incredibly tasty & filling ~ topped with berries, banana, coconut flakes, pure maple syrup and a little whipped butter (SF + 3 WPA) – 7 points+

IMG_0176

I love it when leftovers turn into lunch ~ 2 slices of my Asparagus Potato Tortilla (SF) – 6 points+

I made up a huge batch of this salad by cutting up an entire bag of organic romaine and mixing it with carrots and red cabbage then adding sliced mini peppers and tomatoes.

IMG_0183

I always toss my salad dressing all over my salad by shaking it in my container. (I totally want to say shaken, not stirred, but, that’s an extra sentence!)

Funny fact ~ The Husband always cuts my cherry tomatoes in half when he helps with lunches because he says you get more that way. (SF + 1 WPA for 1 Tbsp. Newman’s Lite Lime) 1 points+

I promise it’s a yellow plum in my picture with a Perfectly Hard Boiled Egg. (SF) – 2 points+

We checked BBQ chicken off our list as we are working our way through the freezer to get ready for Meatless March that starts this Saturday. (SF) – 3 points+

I also traded in my kale chips for a little of the Healthy Potato Salad I made for The Husband (SF) – 2 points+

IMG_0196

We both were wondering if Swiss Chard counts as being a Southern Food like Collard Greens – any thoughts on that?

This morning I was rushing around to get out the door for an early morning meeting with the UK that was cancelled only after I started driving – fun times!

Healthy Egg Roll (SF + 1 WPA) – 5 points+

My co-worker and I decided that we deserved Starbuck’s since we had all this “extra” time on our hands now LOL. Nonfat Decaf Latte with caramel drizzle and a banana (SF) – 3 points+

IMG_0203

I a totally proud of the fact that I had a working lunch at Ristorante Allegria ~ this amazing Italian Food place in an old bank building and I didn’t order pasta!

I did however have two slices of their fresh homemade bread topped with this balsamic, garlic and olive oil dipping sauce. (SF + 4 WPA) – 4 points+

IMG_0205

This was some of the best vegetarian minestrone I’ve ever had. (SF)

IMG_0207

Paired with a simple salad tossed in balsamic vinegar and olive oil (SF) – 2 points+

IMG_0210

I can be totally funny at times ~ being too proud of myself for lunch, I decided I’d earned a 1/2 scoop of mango and 1/2 scoop of triple berry sorbet when we stopped at Annette’s Chocolates on the way back.  It could’ve been ice cream so there is a little success there Winking smile (SF + 4 WPA) – 4 points+

Tonight’s dinner is one of The Husband’s favorite meals ~ we use Bill Bailey Carne Asada to make these super simple Carne Asada Fajita Salads.

IMG_0216

Here is what is in the mix (and you can totally pretend this is just one long run on sentence):

  • My romaine salad mix above
  • grilled peppers, onions and mushrooms
  • 4 oz. grilled carne asada
  • 1 Tbsp. sprinkle of Queso Fresco (it’s like a salty, crumbly mozzarella)
  • 1/8 avocado
  • 1/2 cup homemade pico de gallo

Totally delicious and “almost” 100% Simply Filling (SF + 3 WPA) – 8 points+

IMG_0221

Here are my stats for today:

  • Simple Filling (SF): 12 WPA (Weekly Points Allowance) used, 21 WPA remaining
  • 26 Daily Points+ 0 WPA used, 49 WPA remaining
  • My FitBit Dashboard:

I “almost” did it ~ Actually I think that was harder to do than to just ramble on about my day as though I was chatting with you all over a cup of coffee.

Night all!
