I was pretty pleased with today again ….

Breakfast – 100% Simply Filling

I had a bowl of cereal this morning – I don’t eat cereal that often.  When I do about the only cold cereal I like that falls under the requirements for Weightwatchers Simply Filling is the Shredded Wheat with Oat Bran (over 4g fibre and no added sugar).  I had my bowl with fat free milk and a handful of blueberries.  The last day or two I have been thinking about those individual blueberry oatmeal cups – I think they are my favourite breakfast.  I have blueberries in the fridge, so I will have to make some.

Lunch – Simply Filling+1WPA

For lunch I made a wrap.  I used a Flatout wrap, sliced up one of the Dijon Pork Chops from last night and a handful of Edamame Salad.  As a side I had a serving of blueberries and an apple.

Dinner – 100% Simply Filling

I had  my Zumba class tonight, so I had something for the Slow Cooker.  This is one of my easy nights.  Occasionally I will make up some of my own freezer meals.  Very convenient but much healthier than any kind of store bought ready meal.

So I literally take the bag out of the freezer the night before and in the morning dump it into my slow cooker, turn on and there is dinner.

We had Crock Pot Beef & Peppers.  The recipe is for 4.  I basically take all the ingredients olive oil, round steak, green bell pepper, chopped onion, beef broth, soy sauce, ground ginger, chopped garlic and Worcestershire sauce.  I divide them between two medium size Ziploc freezer bags, gently force out any air and then seal the bag.  Write on them what it is and then pop them in the freezer.  I know every ingredient – unlike many of the ready meals you buy at the store.

Served up with some brown rice and corn on the cob.

Snacks

Mid morning I had a banana and sadly when I got home from work before Zumba I had one of those marshmallow easter eggs (4 Points Plus).
