Onward with the good choices! I feel like I’ve been really on track this week. I’ve used almost all of my Weekly extra points but at least I’m counting and I have an idea what the outcome will be. Actually, I will be Very upset when I get to Weight Watchers this morning if I do NOT have a loss. I’ve worked very hard. But I feel in control and that’s what counts.
I mentioned that I was going to show you a special treat that I used to make for my lunches when I was working. Well, I guess it’s not a “treat”…it’s a salad, but that’s always a treat to me!
It started like this…
One cup of black beans freshly out of the crock pot. 1 cup of frozen corn, defrosted. However much I felt like of salsa. I used a store brand and probably about a cup and a half, but it’s your choice. I added some garlic powder, some ground black pepper and a bunch of Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime. I also like it with green Tabasco sauce, but I was out so I improvised. Mix it all together.
Chopped up a big bowl of Romaine lettuce, topped it with the mixture, then some shredded cheese. This is so simple and so good. It really is a good lunch to go. I would cut up the lettuce in a container with the cheese on top. In a separate container, I would put the bean/corn/salsa mix, then mix them together when it was time to eat. It was such a tasty treat when other people were paying way too much for inferior cafeteria food. I got so many comments over the years from people saying how good it looked. It does and it is!
Friday’s breakfast was something I haven’t done in a while…a breakfast parfait!
I layered Fiber One, sliced banana, sliced strawberries and fat-free vanilla yogurt. Loaded it all in an old glass measuring cup that was my Grandmother’s. I have two of them and they’re perfect for this type of thing, kind of cool too. So tasty and such a good start to the day!
Do you think I liked it?!?! Yup…
Friday’s lunch was the end of the line for the egg salad I made this week.
Just chopped up some Romaine and loaded on the salad topped with some ground black pepper and chopped up sweet pickles. This was so good. I like the combo and I think I need to make egg salad again Next week. Oh, wait…I’m going away, guess I better come up with another game plan!
Keep your fingers crossed for me at Weight Watchers today. I’m hoping for the best. Then I get to go to Ele’s church rummage sale. That’s always great fun…maybe I’ll find some Treasures!!
