Now that’s a sandwich! Turkey, avocado, lettuce, and tomato sandwich (6 Points Plus) 1/2 C cottage cheese (2 Points Plus) fruit (0 Points Plus) Fueling up!
This is going to be a pretty standard dinner this week. The veggies will change (alway a potato), but broccoli and asparagus are also on my menu. The sweet potato is 4 Points Plus, the chicken breast is 5 points plus, and the mixed peppers are free.
This week I get to “fuel my body” for race day! It’s hard to know what to eat to help your body perform its best for something like this. I have consulted my running friends and have a pretty good idea for what I need to be doing. Here is my lunch from today. Egg Salad (recipe below) on Sara Lee Delight bread (6 Points Plus) 1/2 C low fat cottage cheese (2 Points Plus) Strawberries, Pineapple, Grapes (free!). I. AM. STUFFED. I know I have to eat more this week, but it is very hard. I am not worrying as much about keeping my points this week, because I know the importance of making sure my body is fueled up…But I am also not going crazy eating huge amounts. It’s a very good test for me! We will see what the scale says next week!
2 egg whites, 1 yolk (I unfortunately just throw the other one away)
1 Tbsp light mayo
1/2-1 Tsp mustard
1-2 Tsp chopped onion (I like red, but any variety works)
Pepper to taste, might need salt, I just try to avoid.
Chop it, mix it, eat it!
