Saturday 21st (Simply Filling + 22 WPA) vs (26 Points Plus + 19 WPA)

Well today was somewhat of a disaster!

Started out good with a thinwich and an “unfried” egg topped with a little sweet chili sauce.  My fave 100% simply filling breakfast at the moment followed by a banana.

I had a few errands and popped into McDonald’s and got a crispy chicken sweet chili wrap.  When I got home I worked out the points – oh my gosh 19 points plus for this.  If I had chose the grilled chicken it would still have been 16 points plus!!  Guess I am not getting one of those again.  That is ridiculous.  I think a small burger would have been less, and I thought the wrap sounded like a healthier option!!!!

I actually cooked today – don’t normally on a Saturday.  We had some braised pork chops, baby potatoes and tried these cauliflower breadsticks I had seen on Facebook.  I cooked it up in a 9 x 13 pan.  1/4 of the pan is 100% Simply Filling or 3 Points Plus.  I thought they were really yummy, I don’t think my hubby was as impressed with them!!! I have a piece left over for lunch today.

Cauliflower Breadsticks!

•1 large head of cauliflower
•2 cloves garlic, grated or minced…
•2 large eggs, lightly beaten
•4 oz low fat mozzarella cheese
•1/2 teaspoon onion powder
•salt
•pepper

•Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
•Chop the cauliflower into chunks and place into microwave for about 5 minutes or until soft
•Place the cauliflower into a food processor and blend until it’s a mashed potato texture
•In a medium bowl, stir together cauliflower, eggs, cheese, and seasonings
•Lightly spray a baking pan with spray oil and coat with the mixture (about 1/2 inch thick)
•Bake at 450 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the top starts to brown
•Add additional cheese to the top and enjoy!

I don’t think there has been one day this week that I have actually done a Simply Filling day.  Everyday the points plus has been a better option for me.  This is the first day though when following the Points Plus that I have used any of my Weekly Points Allowance.  I get 49 for the week, so I still have 30 left.

Well tomorrow is Day 7.  As long as I can stay under on those 30 WPA that I have left over.  I will have accomplished a successful week.  We shall see ….
