Big News!

I found the perfect breakfast. Well, I don't know if it's perfect, but I can say that it's the only "healthy" breakfast I've eaten that keeps me full. I toast a Thomas Lite English muffin and put a serving of Egg Beaters and a serving of sliced deli turkey on it. With a few squirts of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray, it's delicious! The English muffin has 8 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein. Add that to the carbs in the muffin and the protein in the turkey and fake egg, and you get one filling breakfast for only 3 points! I still make my grande mocha, but it's a GRANDE grande, and it's only 1 point. So my 4 point breakfast keeps me fuller longer than my five point usual breakfast which consists of the mocha and oatmeal with an apple chopped up into it. I don't want to give up the oatmeal breakfast because I think I get a lot from the oats and apple, but I'm going to make it a habit to alternate between the two.

It's been a crazy week. There is a lot I want to say, but am still processing things... tonight is Dining with Divas, so that's good. Glad tomorrow is Friday.

yum yum yum! I guess that would be better than the Starbucks wheat muffin with egg white and turkey bacon and grande dark cherry mocha I had today. (don't judge me! I had gift cards for my $10 b-fast. :) ) Have a lovely week!

I eat oatmeal about four days a week because of the heart benefits. I found that when I eat just plain oatmeal I am left feeling hungry sooner. So now I add a tablespoon of wheatgerm which is a great source of Folic Acid/Vit E and Fiber, and a tablespoon of sliced almonds. Keeps me much fuller!!! I have also discovered I love Chocolate Oatmeal, yes I said Chocolate! I buy Ghirardelli Chocolate Unsweetened Cocoa and add 1 tsp (1 tsp goes a long way!!) to it. Oh my with two splendas to sweeten my oatmeal and that tsp, it's like eatting hot cocoa! The cocoa only has 15 calories per 1 TBSP, and I am only using a tsp. I get my chocolate fix! LOL! Add the almonds and it's even better!
