Good Morning and Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Of course, WIAW is the wonderful link up created by Jenn at Peas & Crayons. Be sure to stop over at P & C when you’re finished here. Drool over some great food and leave some comments.
I’ve been fighting this dreaded bronchitis (was it always bronchitis or did it start just as a cold?) for way, Way too long. I am starting to feel better but yesterday I had a coughing spell that even had Ralph worried. I like to think that spell was all of the evil humors giving up the ghost and leaving my body. As I write this on Tuesday…I’m feeling pretty good, fingers crossed.
My WIAW posts seem to be very breakfast heavy lately, but hey…it is the most important meal of the day, right?!
I’ve been taking antibiotics for about a week. I need to eat something before taking them. I also have to be careful to try to counteract the bad effects of antibiotics so I thought that yogurt made the perfect choice. The yogurt cultures add back in the Good bacteria that the antibiotics kill off along with the Bad ones.
For a change, I had cottage cheese with apple butter…with antibiotics. If you’ve never tried the combo of cottage cheese and apple butter, you are missing something. The sweet spiciness of the apple butter combined with the creaminess of the cottage cheese actually makes it taste decadent. One of my favorites.
A mixed cheese salad from our local pizzeria along with their tasty balsamic vinaigrette.
Saturday, Ralph decided we needed to eat Chinese. I’d had a good day on the scale at Weight Watchers, so I said Ok.
Started with egg drop soup…yum…
My usual…Veggie Delite with brown rice. This was also on the lunch special menu so it was a deal. Delicious!
We had to run some errands on Monday and we agreed that breakfast at the diner would be a good idea. I had never ordered an egg white omelette in a restaurant, but since the Point count for WW is lower, I figured I’d give it a try.
It had green peppers, tomatoes, onions, broccoli and asparagus. Sliced tomatoes on the side. This was really good. I do have to check the Point value on this. Egg whites in general count as 0 Points and it was filled with veggies, but I know they must have cooked it with something else, oil or butter so I’ve got some math to do. (Oh, Joy!) Regardless, I know it was a good choice and I enjoyed it very much.
I realize I haven’t mentioned lately how I’ve been doing at WW since I came back to New Jersey. Saturday I lost 1.6 pounds. That puts me at 8 pounds below my WW goal and even 2 pounds under my personal goal. Not sure if I can sustain this but I’m working hard to make good choices. When I’m finally feeling good enough to go grocery shopping and start cooking again, I think I can keep myself on track. At least I’m going to try!
That’s it for me today for WIAW. Be sure to stop over at Peas & Crayons and see what all the fun kids are eating today. I always enjoy it!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
