Things I'm Loving Right NowJanuary 25, 2012
Since starting back to diligently counting points I've found some new to me things that I'm loving. I thought you might love them too!
You can have 3 full cups (1 oz) of this fake-cheesy, salty, goodness for only 4 Points Plus. Um.... what are you waiting for? Why are you still reading this post... go to the store and get some... now! Just remember that if Cheetos/chips are a red light food for you, definitely pre-portion these first so you don't find yourself eating the whole bag, and don't say I didn't warn you!
Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
OK, you guys probably already know about this, and I'm late to the party, but the Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk is 1 Points Plus for 1 cup! I love it in smoothies, on my oatmeal or over my cereal.
Ruby Red Grapefruit
0 points of deliciousness! And if you think grapefruits are sour nastiness... try this kind. So sweet! For some reason, eating a grapefruit squashes my cravings for other things... not sure why, but I'll take it.
Fat Free Vanilla Frozen yogurt with cashews
Panera - Pesto Garden Veggie Soup and Thai chopped chicken salad
This lunch (half salad, cup of soup) - minus the baguette - for 8 Points Plus! So delicious, and an amazing choice for eating out and staying 100% on plan.
Costco - Cranberry Orange Breakfast Rounds
These are almost like little round pitas. You find them by the prepackaged breads... not in the "bakery section" You can carefully slice them in half and make into 2 pieces. I've been toasted and eating with butter for breakfast. 4 Points Plus total!
Making my own oatmeal
I've finally stopped buying those oatmeal packages. This is cheaper, you get a bigger serving, tastes better, and has less sugar. I take 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats, 1 Tbsp craisins , 1-1/2 Tbsp ground flax, 1 Tbsp brown sugar and make it in the microwave in a big mug. I add 1/2 a cup of almond milk.
Points Plus total = 6 points
I hope this gives you some new food ideas. What are you loving right now? Leave me a comment, as I love to get new ideas, or post a comment to my facebook page.
