Happy Friday Eve all! Our Simple Start breakfast this morning totally revolved around what I thought sounded tasty and what The Husband is currently addicted to. Almost every morning starts off with me asking him ~ so, what sounds good for breakfast as I proceed to list off all the options. He usually lets me run through the entire list before he says….scrambled eggs with a big cheesy grin (like a little kid). That boy would eat scrambled eggs for almost ever meal if I’d make them.
Any guesses on who picked what?
I was on the fence about what I wanted, but, I knew I wanted fresh fruit…a banana, apple, berries. I always make double (1/2 for him and 1/2 for me) otherwise, he sneaks it off my plate..
His pick…..Scrambled eggs
My half of the fruit with 2 scrambled eggs. (SS/SF) – 4 points+
I can’t really tease him though because I love eggs too! Enough to have an Egg Salad Sandwich at lunch.
1 egg + 2 egg whites + LF Mayo + mustard + sea salt + black pepper on top of a slice of 12 grain bread. (SS/SF + 2 WPA) – 5 points+
I use low-fat mayo with olive oil and count it as SS (personal preference) ~ for Simple Start you can count the points+ if any for the amount you use or use Fat Free Mayo.
My favorite new thing ~ Cucumber Chips (slices of mini cucumber topped with salt & pepper).
And a simple side salad for good measure topped with balsamic vinegar.
Mid afternoon I grabbed a light string cheese to go with my cute mini organic honey crisp apple. (Gail ~ I picked both these up at Trader Joe’s!) (SS/SF) – 1 points+
I love leftovers because it means no cooking (unless you count the microwave).
1 creepy looking but totally delicious Leftover Cheesy Mini Meatloaf with a heaping cup of collard greens (SS/SF) – 7 points+
It’s pretty interesting that I feel totally satisfied with my eats today even though my daily points+ total is light. I am good for now, but, if I get hungry later, I may grab a Fage 0% yogurt for snack.
Here are my stats for today:
- Simple Start Day 5 Success, 2 WPA used, 18 WPA remaining (I am sweating not using all 7 WPA today because I ate based on my hunger levels and enjoy my Simple Start Foods)
- 17 Daily Points+ (see note above), WPA used & WPA remaining will be added next week
- My Fitbit Flex Dashboard for today
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What is one fun thing you are looking forward to this weekend?
I can’t wait to see my mom, have dinner with our friends and to finally get back to exercising outside in the sunshine!
