Reminder: I get 26 points plus per day, 49 flex points per week and a ton of activity points from working out, which I don't really use. The points might not add up to exactly 26 because I don't photograph my coffee or fruits.
From top left: Turkey burger with green beans (5 points); Wasa multigrain cracker with Laughing Cow cheese, hummus with veggies (4 points); oatmeal with banana and peanut butter, egg whites with salsa (8 points); turkey Polish sausage with quinoa and veggies (5 points).
baked zucchini boats, veggies and salad (3 points); Wasa cracker with Laughing Cow cheese, hummus, veggies and apple (4 points); leftover hamburger (5 points); pear; banana and peanut butter on half of a Flatout wrap (5 points).
Clockwise from top left: hamburger (5 points); Wasa cracker with egg whites (2 points); Protein Bar southwestern salad without cheese, apple and diet root beer (9 points); hummus with veggies (2 points); banana and peanut butter on a mission carb smart tortilla (5 points).
Protein Bar Denver Scramble with Comiskey Cocoa protein shake, Wasa cracker and banana (8 points); air-popped popcorn with a side of creeping Yorkie looking for a snack (3 points).
Favorite new snack: Wasa crackers are awesome. They're filling and fulfill that "crunchy food" food craving for 1 point.
Biggest disappointment: Laughing Cow sundried tomato mozarella is not what I thought it would be. I'm still going to eat it because I do not waste money ever, but it's not what I was hoping for. Anyone have any suggestions for what flavor I should buy next? Also, I wish I would have gotten the Millennium Perk instead of the Comiskey Cocoa at Protein Bar. They're the same point value and I liked the perk a lot more.
Favorite meal: This is not pictured, but I went to the Chicago Healthy Living Blogger book club Saturday at Kelsey's apartment and they had some seriously amazing food. I used my flex points that day without regret. Someone made this awesome roasted sweet potato and beet kale salad that rocked, but my favorite were these dark chocolate oat energy bite things. So. good. And we read a book and something or other, too.
Biggest revelation: Oatmeal is a lot more enjoyable and attractive when you put the fruit on top instead of stirring it in. Also, I am a huge snacker. I eat all day, just small amounts. Hope that's OK ....
