I feel really in control this week. Not entirely sure why but I feel great about my food choices. I have been watching my portions and eating lots of veggies and fruit. My hubby and I went to the local market and bought TONS of veggies and fruit last night. We are starting to try new things and I've decided to try to incorporate spinach into my weekly meal plan. Last night we fried it up with some other veggies and topped it over pasta and it was delicious! I really enjoyed it. When I first started Weight watchers, it was really hard for me to give up regular white spaghetti. I found that the whole wheat pasta was thinner and not as filling, but now I'm not sure if I could even eat regular white spaghetti. I realize that I can have the same serving size of whole wheat pasta for way less points! The brand I consistently use is Catelli's Healthy Harvest Flax omega 3 Spaghetti. It is delicious and only 5 points for 85 g (Which is a large serving!!) It also comes in Rotini if you like the chunkier pastas. I love it topped with pesto and veggies. Definitely worth checking it out.
Tonight is my off night from working out so I have decided to try and make some homemade hummus (a fat friendly version) I have never tried Hummus before in my life so it should be a fun little experiment. I will let you know tomorrow how it all goes down. I think it would be great on a veggie wrap which I could bring for lunch (If you've noticed I haven't had much variety in my lunches at work, they are borderline BORING!) Time to spice things up!
I'm still working on my "100 Things About ME" and I am having so much fun with it. I think everyone should make this list because you actually learn quite a bit about yourself. I should have it posted by the weekend.
