Day 1

Well I woke up this morning excited about embarking on trying to stick to a Simply Filling lifestyle.

I started the day with some Protein Pancakes which I always enjoy.  I found some on line last week which were called “The BEST Protein Pancakes”.  That’s quite the claim so I was eager to try them.  I think I would have to agree they were really really good.  They kept me full all morning … I had with some of the E.D.SMITH NO SUGAR ADDED SYRUP which is only 10 calories per Tbsp.Protein pancakes

The BEST Protein Pancakes

  • 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1/2 Cup Fat Free Cottage Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Egg Beaters
  • 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Dash of Salt
  1. Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor and process until smooth and combined.  The recipe does state to add a little water if too thick, but it was just fine.  Allow to stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat a medium nonstick skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray on medium-high heat.  Add batter, about 1/4 cup at a time.  Spread evenly with a spoon.  When bubbles form on top and edges start to get dry, flip over and cook other side.  Repeat with the rest of the batter.

Servings – 1

This recipe came from My Kitchen Adventures.

Mid Morning I had a banana (0 Points+) (SF)

I really had to remind myself it was lunch time those pancakes certainly keep you satisfied.  I still had salad leftover from the weekend, so that’s what I had.

I subscribe to the Slender Kitchen menu planner and it had a wonderful Asian Quinoa Salad.  It is 5 Points Plus per simply or 100% Simply Filling

I had dinner all planned out for today, then one quick phone call from my husband changed that.  A restaurant on my first day of trying to make Simply Filling Choices!

Well, I think I did pretty good.  They had a section called lighter choices.  I chose the grilled chicken with peach puree.  It was literally just pureed peach.  Vegrtables were green and yellow beans.  Then I had some rice pilaf.  I did have a small side caesar salad which is a weakness of mine, which wasn’t really such a good choice!!!!  I pounched it all into my on-line Weightwatchers planner and my meal came to 14 Points Plus ( Simply Filling 8 WPA)

During the evening sat watching a movie I had a packet of Pop Chips.  These are only 3 Points + per bag and are really good.

DAILY STATS
