Today I have done nothing except pop to the shop and back and it has been lovely just chilling indoors watching some tv and browsing the web for recipes, I always find myself doing this when I have time on my hands.. I have about 200 bookmarked blogs and recipe websites on my laptop! In fact whilst browsing this is where I found my dinner for tonight, as I still do not have my cooker connected I thought I would search for some microwave recipes which were suitable for weightwatchers and found one that is perfect for me as it uses tortilla wraps… which as everyone who reads my blog will have worked out by now that I am slightly addicted to 😉 Recipe is here at http://www.weightwatchers.com/util/art/index_art.aspx?tabnum=1&art_id=78521&sc=3022
It’s called a Quesadilla.. Ooohhh exotic I hear you say! I changed the recipe slightly to my tastes and to make it a bit more filling here’s the recipe I made:Ingredients: 2 weightwatchers tortilla wraps 5pp 25g low low red pepper and chilli cheese spread 1pp 1 mini pepper sliced 0pp 1 medium mushroom sliced 0pp 45g hot tomato salsa 0pp 50g Bernard matthews tikka turkey 1pp 25g Co-op reduced fat grated cheddar 2pp Method: Spread 1 wrap with the low low cheese spread, then the other with the salsa. Add the sliced vegetables and turkey too the one with the salsa on and then add the grated cheese last, season to taste then place the other tortilla on top of it and microwave for 1 minute on high. Voila a lovely filling Quesadilla in minimal amount of time and only 9pp! So my menu today was: Breakfast: A banana and frozen mixed berry smoothie made with 200ml skimmed milk 2pp, Topped with a sprinkling of hot chocolate 0pp. Lunch: weightwatchers tortilla wrap 3pp, 50g Quorn ham style slices 2pp, 1 dairy lea light cheese triangle 1pp, Mini pepper sliced 0pp, 15g Light salad cream 1pp. Dinner: Home made Quesadilla 9pp (Recipe above) Snacks: Tesco caramella sundae 4pp So total used 22/26pp Weigh in tomorrow am expecting a gain or a stay the same at least.. I have done nothing different this week apart from use my weeklies later in the week and do more exercise , which you would think was a good thing Anyhow the scales have not been looking kind the last few days but this is something of a routine for me I seem to have a couple of good losses, then either a sts/gain so I am not too worried I know I have eaten well and sometimes the body just does thing like this to us! Good luck to everyone on a new week! Much love Gems 😀
It has been such a long day, I have walked 8.5miles and done 20,495 steps already! I just waned to jump on and say not had such a great day food wise, but have stayed within pp although am a little hungry now after all that exercise so may have a wrap in a mo, but luckily have some weeklies left.. Don’t usually dip into them this late in the week but I feel if I don’t eat now it may be worse for me later!?! :O
My menu today was:
Breakfast: None.. I know it’s wrong but I really wanted comfort food brekkie, like bacon, eggs etc.. so couldn’t bring my self to have cereal I just wouldn’t have enjoyed it!
Lunch: 60g cous cous 2pp, Nume chicken fajita sandwich filler 160g (last of the pot needed to be used) 4pp.
Dinner: Weight watchers tortilla wrap 3pp, Aldi sliced garlic sausage 3 slices 1pp, 1 dairylea light cheese triangle 1pp.
Snacks: Here is where I have blown most of my points for the day.. I had a double milky way 6pp, a ripple 5pp and a 150ml pot of yoomoo angelmoo 4pp (This is really yummy frozen yoghurt swirled with blueberry sauce and berries, sprinkled with vanilla pumpkin seeds it was divine and for 4pp well worth the points, I took a gamble with this as I have never had frozen yoghurt before but now it will be my treat of choice rather than Ice cream!)
So today I have used 29/26 (3 Weeklies used)
I am surprised at how hungry I am but because of the walk I can kinda see why.. here is a pic of the gorgeous Cia
We had a fab day and everyone is exhausted, so that’s me for the night take care. Much love Gems 😀
