In The Car

I have been in the car off and on all day. It's been crazy! I think I have been in one spot maybe a combined total of 2 hours for the whole day. It was getting close to dinner and I was getting a little hungry, but dinner was going to be later because of running the daughters to activities. I decided to eat a snack anyway that way I wouldn't be too ravenous at dinner. I had some pretzel sticks and 1 oz. Cabot 75% Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese...





Dinner had to be quick and simple tonight. It was just little daughter and me; big daughter and the husband were at a PIZZA party. Little daughter wanted breakfast for dinner so, I decided on the same. For me, I made a three egg white omelette with a handful of baby spinach, sauteed mushrooms and 1 oz. goat cheese. I also had a Western Alternative Bagel with 1/2 tbsp. light butter. Satisfying 5 Point dinner...



I had plenty of Points left for a big dessert. Instead of going for something too crazy(like Halloween candy- yes, we still have some!!) and potentially dangerous, I decided to apply what I learned in my meeting today about choosing healthy, filling foods. I made a Banana Strawberry Trifle using 1 slice Whole Grain Banana Bread, sliced banana, Fiber One Strawberry Yogurt and a bit of Cool Whip Free...


Well, it sure was filling and I guess it should be for 5 Points! I am really full. Hey, maybe those Weight Watchers people know what they're talking about after all.... :)
