I finally broke down and bought the food scales and as I was weighing different types of food last night I was shocked, SHOCKED! at how many points I have been eating just having a baked chicken breast. The meat alone off of just a "normal" size chicken breast, not one of those big-ass-honkers you can get pumped up with chemicals and sodium, just a small one mind you was 10 points!!! I won't even go into my sliced ham. Geez...but I am guessing the wake up calls with portions will just continue. I bought the Biggest Loser Kitchen Scale for $19.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond:
I wanted to share dinner last night, and I will quit putting yellow-orangey food on an orange plate, just something my son likes to eat out of and an easy grab, but I did the recipe from NutmegGirl's Open Faced Canadian Bacon Cheddar Cheese Omelet http://nutmegnotebook.com/ (she had Gruyere Cheese but I didn't have that...) and it was good. I used spinach instead of kale. Mine was 6 points as I cooked it in Brummel and Brown.
Lunch today was blah for me, I had the rest of the ham (2 oz!) on 2 slices whole wheat bread with 1 tsp Hellman's Lite Mayo (I ended up taking the cheese off, just didn't want the 2 points) and a bunch of raw veggies for 6 points and I guess I will get all crazy wild later this afternoon and eat an apple. (Have I mentioned today the scales still aren't moving except a little up then a little down, over and over again for the last 3 weeks?)
Oh yeah, one more thing, have you looked at how everyone is passing around the Protein Pancakes recipe? I will be trying these babies out sometime soon! 3 big ones for 7 points+ check out My Kitchen Adventures post on them and Loser for Life has also posted on their deliousness. Will see!
