On The Road Again

Greeting from the shore again! We took our sweet time getting here today which enabled us to avoid lots of traffic. After another great night sleep, I felt much better and more energetic this morning. I took advantage of the energy and headed straight to the elliptical for an easy 30 minute workout.

I was much more decisive for breakfast, too. I went straight for a savory wafflewich made with 2 Eggo Nutrigrain waffles, 1 egg white and a slice of Weight Watchers American for a great 3 POINT breakfast...


I made some iced coffee with fat free half and half (1 POINT) to go with it...


I took my time packing and reorganizing everyone's bags. I'm bad at packing and tend to bring the kitchen sink, but I did better this time:)

It was slim pickings for lunch since I scaled down all the fresh produce and perishable items. I dug out a Chickpea Spinach Almond Burger from the freezer, topped it with asiago cheese and put it on an Arnold Sandwich Thin. I chose some applesauce for my side; I forgot how good applesauce is!


But, I still needed some crunch, so I went with a 1/2 serving of Kettle Baked Potato Chips...

It was a tasty and satisfying 7 POINT lunch!
After an errand or two, it was time to hit the road. We made it to the beach house in record time! Don't worry, Mom, we weren't speeding ;P I unpacked the goods and had a little snack of peanut butter filled pretzels (2 POINTS) to tide me over until we decided on dinner...


The daughters voted for Chinese food. The husband ordered and I headed to the supermarket to pick up a few things. While there, I came across these Kahiki Vegetable Egg Rolls...

One egg roll is only 70 calories, 2 grams of fat and 1 gram fiber- 1 POINT! I decided to give them a try so that I wouldn't be tempted by the "other" egg rolls from the restaurant. They were terrific! The egg roll was as crisp as if it had been fried due to the special packaging that's used during microwaving and it was filled with the traditional veggies. The only complaint I would have is that there was a little too much black pepper seasoning on the veggies for my taste, but otherwise, they are a fantastic alternative to the restaurant fried egg roll.
I ordered Shrimp with Broccoli for my dinner. I paired it with the Kahiki egg roll for a tasty 8 POINT dinner...

I had to see what good fortune I would have...

After our filling dinner, we went for a brisk family walk on the beach for about 30 minutes. It was a beautiful night :)
Ice cream was on the agenda for dessert! I bought some Breyers Fat Free Double Churn Vanilla Ice Cream while at the supermarket. I'm trying to keep the vacation damage to a minimum!! I decided to liven it up by topping it with one of these guys (1 POINT) brought from home...



and a teensy squirt of Hershey's Special Dark Syrup for a decadent 3 POINTS...

I'm off to cozy up with the husband. Have a great night, everyone!!!
