I thought I'd take some time today to share my meals for Tuesday, October 23rd.
For breakfast, I decided to have egg muffins. One of the YouTubers that I follow made a Denver Omelet inspired breakfast casserole, but I decided I'd prefer to make sure I have some built in portion control. I put everything in the recipe tracker, but honestly, the portions didn't turn out entirely correct when I actually made the recipe, but I didn't adjust the tracker. In my mind, it was better for me to over-estimate the points than underestimate the points. I think when I make them again, I will do the milk, then egg and then any toppings last. Breakfast Total was 3 Freestyle SmartPoints.
Lunch was a homemade lunchable. I cut up (not real well as you can tell from the picture) 3 slices of Hormel Naturals Oven Roasted Turkey Breast, 1 serving of hummus, 1 serving of Pita Chips and grape tomatoes. For future reference, I think I should package my crackers/chips separately so I don't have to put them in the fridge. I don't like my chips to be cold, but maybe it's personal preference. Lunch Total was 7 Freestyle Smart Points.
Dinner was higher in points, but so worth it. I had 2 of the Ole Whole Wheat Tortillas, with chicken fajitas that I made in the crockpot (chicken bell pepper, onion and seasoning), some homemade refried beans, 20 grams of Avocado, 18 grams of cheese. It was tasty and quite filling. Dinner was 10 Freestyle Smartpoints. So yummy!
Mid-afternoon, I was craving some chocolate. I don't always give in, but if I portion control these tasty almonds, it's a much better choice than a Reese's cup! 4 Almonds are just enough to curb the sweet tooth and only 1 Freestyle SmartPoint.
