Behind The Times

I feel a bit messed up from the time change. I got a late start this morning since it is now dark again. I never feel like getting out of bed when it's like that! I did some things around the house and read a little and before I knew it, it was almost 11 a.m.! Time for breakfast! I wanted another one of the grocery goodies my Mom brought me...







Another low POINT bagel! These are called Kim's Light Bagels . They are made by a woman named Kim Bensen who has lost over 200 lbs. on the Weight Watchers Program. Her story is so inspiring and her bagels are delicious! My Mom picked me up the Everything flavor which is 110 cal., 1.5 gr. fat and 4 gr. fiber which is 2 POINTS. She does make other flavors that are only 1 POINT, too. I had mine toasted and topped with 1 Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge and a sliced orange for 4 POINTS...



For lunch, I made a veggie tofu scramble. Don't say, "eeewwww"! It was really good! I made good use of leftover veggies, too. I took a 1/2 block of Nasoya Lite Tofu , crumbled and sauteed it in a nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray. To that, I added some leftover chopped grilled zucchini and leftover roasted potato, peppers and onions. When everything was heated through, I mixed in a slice of 2% cheese until it was all melty. Sooooo veggie-licious for 4 POINTS...



If you're scared of tofu, try it in a scramble. It takes on the consistency of a scrambled egg and really doesn't have much flavor on it's own, so it takes on the flavor of whatever you season it with. A few years ago when I "dabbled" in vegetarianism, I had tofu scrambles all the time for breakfast or lunch. It really is yummy!


I fit in another favorite snack this afternoon: Weight Watchers Strawberry yogurt and THAT Trader Joe's cereal for 2 POINTS...



I finally got around to doing my exercise. Instead of another 5K, I hit the basement for a pumpin 35 min. on the elliptical while reading, Intuitive Eating. I began reading this book a few weeks ago and I have been enlightened by the principles in this book. So eye-opening! My sister from another mister, Angie is currently reading this book also and has been doing some great recaps and self-discovery posts. Check it out; it's so interesting!


Dinner was a family favorite: Philly Cheesesteaks! I made some homemade baked fries ( I love my mandoline!!) and a big salad with Kraft Light Three Cheese Ranch to go with it. A yum-o 9 POINT din din...


After dinner, I "un-intuitively" (it's a word now!) ate 2 Hershey's kisses and another small chocolate that I, um, "forgot" to take a picture of ;D. So, to finish out my dessert, I had some tea and a Weight Watchers Chocolate Chip Cookie ( 1 POINT)...


Not too shabby, today. I feel a little off kilter with the time change, but I like that it is light longer in the evening! I'm off to catch up on that whopping hour of sleep that I lost; hey, every bit counts right?! Have a great night and good zzzz's!!

That dinner looked delish! How do you make the cheesesteaks? Can you share your recipe please??

Also, where do you get the Kraft Light 3 Cheese. I used to get it at Acme, but I couldn't find it there today.

Thanks!

Scrumptious eats! I've never seen those bagels before, but wow, that is awesome that she has her own product line after losing so much weight.

And great eats, yum on the tofu!

Lovely foods today. I like how there are so many options for eating light bagels and breads now.

Amanda said...

I get Kims Bagels too. I have to order them online though unfortunately.

Time change is really messing me up as well. So tired this morning.

Jessica - I use Landis 94% lean sirloin steaks ( in the frozen section near the Steak-Ums), 2 % cheese and Amoroso Club Rolls for the cheesesteaks along with whatever veggies I have around - mushrooms, peppers, etc. You can get all those ingredients at Acme. I do buy the Kraft Light 3 Cheese at Acme and I have seen it at Superfresh (now Pathmark). Hope that helps :)
