I think summer officially arrived yesterday as it was finally HOT and we used our a/c I am so in LOVE with our new central heat & air. I think one of the BEST things about summer (aside from Farmer’s Markets) is that it makes you want to eat lighter naturally.
Breakfast started off with a big bowl (1 1/3 cup) of melon (1 pt).
Then, I decided I was still hungry, so I had a slice of Milton’s Multi-Grain Bread with ICBINB spray. I LOVE this bread, but, don’t love the 2 points a slice
On our way to the Farmer’s Market and do to a little shopping, I stopped and got a Venti Iced FF Decaf Latte with Caramel Drizzle (3 pts).
Since we still have some stuff left from last week, I limited myself at the Farmer’s Market. I still can’t believe nobody has corn yet this year There is one vendor there that has you try it raw ~ LOVE that! Come back soon my favorite “corny guy” LOL!
Here is my loot!
Cilantro & kale
As soon as I get home I put my herbs into my herb keeper so they last for weeks.
White & yellow nectarines plus PLUOTS!
Some more Butter Toffee almonds from The Nut Barn!
Almost all together with Chile Lime & Jalapeño Salsa Tortillas.
Lunch was simply amazing. It started off with a little “Asian Slaw” ~ TJ’s Organic Broccoli Slaw + TJ’s LF Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (1 pt).
Then came the sandwiches that I think made both The Husband and I make sounds LOL Seriously ~ they were either THAT good or it’s been too long since I’ve made BLTA’s!!!
AVOCADO makes the world a better place!!! This HUGE sandwich clocks in at 6 points but tastes like so much more. No MAYO needed when you have AVOCADO!
* 2 Slices TJ’s FF Multi-Grain Grain Bread
* 1/4 mashed AVOCADO sprinkled with PINK sea salt & black pepper
* 2 slices TJ’s Uncured Applewood Smoked Bacon ~ honestly, the BEST bacon around!
* Organic Romaine and Thick tomato slices
Mid afternoon I snacked on some MORE melon plus a Mini Baby Bel Light Cheese (2 pts).
I figured I should probably get back to some real cooking since I haven’t been doing too much of that lately. I didn’t do anything fancy for dinner but, it was super filling and delicious.
Grilled Corn! (1 pt)
I whipped up a big batch of Harvest Grain Salad plus cucumber. This salad has so much flavor and great chewing texture. If you haven’t tried it, you all need to – it’s so easy and goes great by itself, over salad or off the spoon (1/2 c = 4 pts)
4 oz Grilled Center Cut Pork Loin cut into rib shapes ~ LEAN RIBS! (4 pts). I topped them with a mix of Gayle’s Chipolte BBQ & our Caribbean BBQ Sauce (to tone down the heat).
Today is the Weight Watchers Walk It 5K! My location has 2 5K’s going on – not sure if I will do one or two, but, I am excited The Husband is coming out for one of them to do it with me
Have a fantastic Sunday all!
