Happy Monday all! Thanks for all your nice comments, tweets & facebook messages regarding the new design & layout. I am still working on a few design things, like the fact that I use smiley faces wayyyyy too much and they show up as my first picture in some posts ~ oops. (Note, resisting inserting one here ~ ha!) We are also definitely trying to find a resolution for why my site is loading so slow (hopefully Lunar finds the fix soon!).
This morning I woke up craving breakfast burritos and decided it was time to make these.
There is just something about corn tortillas, salsa, eggs & sausage that make these Taco Muffins absolutely delicious. I had 2 for 5 points+.
Plus a BIG Iced Coconut Coffee ~ Just coconut coffee brewed over ice with a 1/2 tsp of agave syrup and a splash of fat free half & half.
I have a serious Coconut & Iced Coffee addiction this summer.
I LOVE starting with Edamame for 2 BIG reasons ~ they bring it out almost as soon as you sit down & you get 1/2 cup for only 1 points+ (protein power!)
Miso Soup ~ 2 points+
I really need to replicate the dressing they use on Japanese Side Salads. It is so good and I bet so easy to make (3 points+)
I totally spiced things up today since I am trying to not catch a cold and used ALL of my wasabi in my soy sauce….so, spicy good!
Ben’s Roll ~ Spicy Tuna w/Spicy Crab, Avocado, Shrimp & Tempura Flakes (9 points+ for 8 pieces)
Mid afternoon I had a big bowl of melon & another Iced Coconut Coffee see ~ addicted!
Tracey bought me a fancy new Igloo lunch bag to celebrate my new job…..I LOVE that it is super cute, big enough to fit a BIG SALAD container and….
It’s More Than Cool! See, CHEESE ~ how can you not insert a smiley with that statement lol
Ok, moving on! You all will seriously laugh at me for dinner. I had this fancy menu planned out as you saw on yesterday’s post, complete with all the ingredients to make everything.
I was pondering BLTA’s or Carne Asada Steak Salad when all I kept thinking about was soup.
I honestly think the ONLY time you can eat soup when it’s 90 degrees outside is when you are trying to not get sick.
I really wanted homemade chicken noodle soup, but, figured this counts the same lol.
I actually picked this Market Classis soup mix up at World Market a little while back because I LOVE using their soup mix as a base then adding to it.
In addition to the mix plus 1/2 lb of Chicken Breast, I added a bunch of zucchini from our garden.
Then, I piled on all the fixin’s to make one crunchy, sweet, spicy chicken tortilla soup in 30 minutes.
* 1 1/2 cups Chicken & Zucchini Tortilla Soup (4 points+)
* 1/8 AVOCADO (1 points+)
* Garden tomatoes, green onions & fresh corn (1 points+)
* 2 Tbsp Tortilla Strips (1 points+)
* Spicy Garlic Salsa!

What do you to try to not catch a cold when you think you are getting one?
I usually take Emergen-C in the morning and Airbourne at night time. One of my friends told me that you should eat super spicy stuff it will scare colds off. I am so trying that and adding like Tabasco to everything I think
