Yummy in My Tummy

24 Jan

It really feels that way sometimes…(to read more about why click here).

Today’s Eats:

Eggland's Best

I love to use precooked hard-boiled eggs. They are a little more pricey than a dozen of eggs but I have learned that it has to be convenient for me to make good choices.  Eggland Best brand has coupons all the time so I save money and time.  Besides they look so nice and fancy on the plate (I can’t peel a hard-boiled egg to save my life!).

Natures Own 40 Bread

I have found that all breads are not created equal. Nature’s Own 40 Calorie breads are 1 point per slice. Some breads are up to 3 points per slice. If you eat toast or sandwiches several times a week these extra points really add up. I would rather save those points for fancy bread not just a slice of toast.
Toast and eggs

~4 points plus for two eggs. ~2 points plus for bread and ~0 points plus blueberries. Total meal: 6 points.

Some mornings one egg is plenty some I am hungrier and I eat two. This morning I ate breakfast much later than usual so by the time I ate I was hungry and I wanted two eggs.

ZB and I had the morning together to run some errands. Since she is in preschool five days a week now we don’t have our morning outings anymore. It was fun to hang with her. It took forever to get things done but she was darn cute.


Salad makings

What it takes to ‘throw together a salad’.  This is why I love to get salads when I am out. I don’t love salad prep. I know. It is a healthy sin. Hi, my name is Becca and I don’t like making salads. Judge away.

mixed greens, blueberries, carrots, and mushrooms~0 points plus. egg~2 points plus. Pickled beets~1 point plus. Bacon Pieces (left over from a recipe)~1 points plus. Hidden Valley Ranch Organic Dressing~2 points plus for 1 Tb. Sunflower seeds~1 points plus.

Total Meal: 7 points plus

45 mins later…ok 5 minutes later my salad is ready to eat.

It was yummy in my tummy! (even if it was a pain in the…)

Let’ live well, friends.

Do you like to make salads?  How do you make healthy food prep easier?

    Wow, I just realized that when I’m at the grocery store I always tell myself “Don’t buy those hard boiled eggs because they are more expensive and you can just boil your own eggs at home” however…. when I get home, it is so inconvenient that I never do it!
    So I am sbotaging myself. I need to buy the convenient hard boiled eggs like you do. Gosh I know it seems like a simple thing, but for me it was a “light bulb” gon on in my mind! Lol
    Ok, have a great week! Emily

      It is the little things, right? I saw another blogger use these eggs for an easy new mother breakfast and a light bulb went off for me as well! Thanks for reading!

    I had got some hard boiled eggs like that at ingles, just not that brand and they were nasty so I guess I will have to try that brand instead!

    I may have to borrow your lunch idea! The hard boiled eggs and bread with fruit idea is a very good one :). Thanks!
