I always seem to want something sweet in the afternoon. Usually some fruit and/or yogurt takes care of the craving. However, I wasn’t really hungry today so I know I didn’t need anything. I was super proud of myself for passing up the sample at Trader Joe’s (Apple Streusel w/French Vanilla Ice cream!) Since I am sticking to tracking all my BLT’s I didn’t want to have to try to figure out the nutritionals for that – ha – that is one way to avoid it, right? LOL…..
When I got home, I STILL wanted something sweet so I had a few of The Husband’s Brachs Jelly Nougats – I LOVE these! After looking up the nutritional information, I had 2 more since you get 5 for 3 Weight Watcher Points – total justification, right?! :)
It was so hot today so dinner was light and on the grill. I grilled up some “Satay Peanut” Chicken breasts by brushing them with this sauce I got at Trader Joe’s.
While the chicken grilled, I prepped our salads. Here is mine BEFORE I added chicken.
Organic Romaine mixed with Organic Mixed Greens
Orange Bell Pepper
Sliced yellow/orange tomatoes
A couple of strawberries and a sprinkle of blueberries
1/4 of a small AVOCADO
I added 3 oz of grilled Chicken Satay and a sprinkle of roasted sesame seeds
I made up a batch of Ginger Sesame Dressing and drizzled about 2 Tbsp over my salad.
Today when I was shopping I happened to see that PopChips has a new flavor that I have not yet tried ~ Sea Salt Multi-Grain Chips. I couldn’t wait to open them up and give them a try. They are so different from their other flavors – not in a bad way. They are sorta like a multi-grain rice cake/cracker to me. I had 10 chips with my dinner :)
For dessert, I decided to give the Trader Joe’s Raspberry & Vanilla Cream Bars a try that I bought a few weeks back.
My first reaction was – it’s SMALL and then my 2nd reaction was where is the stick? The bar is about a 1/2 cup of ice cream so it’s a mini bar for 2 Weight Watcher Points. Oh and if I read the package it says there is no stick, you are suppose to eat it like a push-up :) It was actually really good, creamy and had the perfect balance of berry and vanilla bean.
I also prepped my lunch for tomorrow today ~ Be sure to check back tomorrow for my Grilled Eggplant Lasagna Recipe.
Today was totally productive getting things done around the house and getting ready for our busy weekend next week. However, I think I am forever behind on reading your blogs….I will do my best to catch up this week to see what you all are up to.
For now, I am off to watch the Next Food Network Star! Nite all!
