Recently, a friend of mine, who lives at a distance asked me what I’ve been eating while in isolation, that has me losing weight?
I’ve lost close to 36 pounds. It’s not always easy, but I am determined to get to my goal. I truly want to be the best me that I can. I will detail it a bit for her and for you.
Before I get started I need to mention I am following the Weight Watchers (Green Plan). It’s the one plan where counting your points and weighing and measuring is important.
My favorite breakfast is my Banana Pancakes. It’s made with 2 tbs of Kodiak Pancake mix, 1/4 cup of egg whites, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 package of Splenda, a sprinkling of cinnamon, and 1 medium banana. Mix all together and cook in a frying pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.
I love this and it is my preferred main course at breakfast. I also eat fat-free yogurt and a mix of berries. The total points for this meal, and my coffee with fat-free creamer, is 5 points.
Lunch is mostly vegetables. My favorite veggie is Eggplant. Even during this isolation time, I have been able to get beautiful eggplant.
I roast it, and then have it with a garden salad.
I also drink copious amounts of herbal teas. Since I am not a fan of water, the herbal teas are nice.
My snacks are mostly fruit. I wrote about my love of Koru Apples and I am good for 1-2 of those a day.
Dinner (supper) is where I get a bit point heavy. Chicken, turkey, or fish tend to be lower in points (and favorites). I have pretty much given up pork, but really do enjoy a good steak. So, I eat beef once in about 10 days.
I will eat two veggies at dinner. Usually a freshly made vegetable, or a salad, with a leftover vegetable from the day before.
Dessert is a Yasso Frozen Yogurt Bar. Yummy!
Now here are a few things I don’t do. I pretty much have given up on carbs. I do not metabolize them like most people. If I do have anything, it’s perhaps a low carb/calorie bread to make a tuna sandwich. But pasta and potatoes and I just do not get along.
I am never hungry. If I do feel like eating then salads or apples give me the desired crunch!
I have great recipes that I fall back on, and every day I commit to making this new WW Plan work for me.
One thing is for sure. Eating the fresh fruit, vegetables, and healthy proteins have me feeling pretty darn good. I sleep better at night and actually have more energy during the day.
