Day 6

This morning for breakfast I fixed some Protein Pancakes. The recipe is enough for 4 pancakes. I just used 1/2 the batter to make 2 which I had with some strawberries and flaked coconut (5 Points+).

I can use the remaining batter tomorrow. Four pancakes is sometimes just a little too much for me. Often if I cook them up on a Saturday I will eat all 4 of them because they become a breakfast/lunch for me.  They are very filling, it was around 2:30pm at work before I realised it was lunch time.  I did have a banana mid morning, so they do really satisfy you.

Before I came out this morning I decided to make several trips up and down the stairs instead of discovering late at night that I have not reach my stairs goal.  Anyone watching would think I was crazy.  I went down the stairs, walked to the far end of the basement, turned round came up the stairs and walked to the far end of the house and then turned around and walked back across the house, down the stairs and repeated that 5 or 6 times!!!  Not only did I leave for work with 8 flights of stairs registered on my FitBit, but I got some steps in as well!!!

The middle of the morning my husband brought in a bag of Ju-Jubes – not really a problem for me.  However, there were black licorie ju-jubes in the bag.  I have a little problem (!) with licorice in anything.  I LOVE IT.  So I looked on the bag and saw a serving was 6 Ju-Jubes- so I proceeded to dig through the bag and remove the 6 black licorice ones!!!  I punched the nutritional info into my phone to discover they came to 3 Points+.  They were completely worth it to me as they were so yummy!!!!!!!!  My husband and I work together, and the open bag sat on his desk for the remainder of the day and I wasn’t tempted at all!

Lunch was a repeat again for me, a very enjoyable one though!  Two Taco Egg Muffins, salad, raw carrots with Tbsp of hummus for dipping.  (6 Points+).

I saw a recipe today for little individual Lasagna Cups, 2 Points+ each, they are made in muffin tins just like the Taco Egg Muffins.  They look like something good for lunch next week.  I will have to jot down the ingredients and make sure I buy everything, so I can make them up at the weekend.

For dinner tonight we are having Creole Salmon.  This recipe serves 6 and as there is only the hubby and I.  When I buy the salmon, I combine all the sauce ingredients and divide between 3 heavy duty freezer bags, pop 2 salmon fillets in each bag.  Carefuly squeeze the bag to remove any excess air.  Seal the bag and pop in the freezer.  Then I have 3 meals ready to go.  I put the bag in the fridge before I leave for work, then when I get home I just need to put it in a baking dish to cook.  On a working day this is such a time saver, allows me to have something cooked from scratch, without all the fuss!!
