I love food....I'm a foodie, big time. It's been important to me to find some go-to foods while on this journey to live healthier. So far, soups have been my major go-to food. Veggies, Chicken, Beans, shrimp, fish, scallops, Barley, Quinoa....all sorts of ingredients cooked up to into a tasty broth. Sometimes pureed with the immersion blender, some eaten as a hearty thick stew. I know eating lots of soup has helped fill me up and get lots of veggies in my system. I love soup. Now, as the weather is heating up, I'm wondering....will I still love soup when it's 100+ outside? I'm thinking "NO!" I will have to find some other quick, one-dish meals that will help me on my journey. Thankfully, with the warmer temps also comes summer fruits and veggies. Perhaps salads will be a big deal in my daily eating plan....they seem a bit tedious to prepare and assemble. You can't make up a big vat of green salad ahead of time and eat on it all week. Maybe I'll have to crank the a/c and enjoy my zippy soups through out the blistering heat.
There have been some other foods that I've enjoyed so far. They are tasty and low points:
Trisket thins and sliced cheese are a big snack for me. I've also taken it along for a portable lunch. YUMMM
sandwich thins or bagel thins (orowheat or thomas brands): a great low-point, high fiber sandwich holder
laughing cow cheese....yum, spread on the above thins for a quick sandwich or snack
Popchips : 3pts for a serving size.....but it's a lot of chips. I've been content with 1/2 that amount. Costco has the ginormous bag for a great price
Rotel canned tomatoes : They really help add some ZIP to my soups....yummo
beef jerky : low fat, high protein, and decent WW points plus wise Great for road trips or when you're out running errands and STARVING!!!
