Why I love Weight Watchers/Day 30

Oh do click on that to make it larger!

Thank you to Ian for holding up the backdrop and to Daphne for the tea towel from Paris! That's my Mama's cast iron skillet, my favorite Piglet plate and my favorite hand painted juice glass. Eating is about the visual for me as well as the savoriness.

I had my coffee this morning and I was starving. I wanted sustenance. I didn't want puffy O's and yogurt. I wanted something that would satisfy me, something to stick to my ribs. WW allows me to do that!

I created this frittata. It's got a whole veg in it. It's got both of my healthy oils for the day in it. I had a sliced nectarine, one of my fruits, and a WW yogurt, one of my milks. That's a WW English muffin you see there topped with sugar free marmalade. A glass of Crystal Light tops off my feast. Can you say burrrrrrrrrrp? I spent 9 points on that meal, but look how many of my HG's I got in at breakfast! Not only that, I couldn't finish it all. So, now, I've got my lunch or snack or whatever I call what I eat next and the points are already counted!

How I did it.

3.5 ounces of raw potato grated = 1 point
2 teaspoons of olive oil = 2.5 points (both healthy oils for the day!)
1/8 cup grated onion = 0 points (I figure the onion and pepper = 1 of my veg for the day)
1/8 cup diced red bell pepper = 0 points
1/2 cup egg beaters = 1 point
4 slices Canadian bacon = 1 point
14 grams low fat feta cheese = .5 point
1 WW English muffin = 1 point (whole grain)
1 T sugar free marmalade = 0 points
1 sliced nectarine = 1 points (1 of my fruits for the day)
6 oz Weight Watchers peach yogurt = 1 point (one of my milks for the day)

I just love that Weight Watchers gives us the opportunity to satisfy our appetites. Most mornings I'm happy with oatmeal or cereal and yogurt. That wasn't going to cut it this morning and it didn't have to. Variety is indeed the spice of life.

I'll have to wait a while before exercising today for sure!

  1. That's why I love it too. You have to be able to eat something that feels satisfying other than salad and fresh fruit and veggies and WW definitely allows you to do that if you want to. I love it! :)
