Day 2: What I ate today

What I ate today..this is good for me because I LOVE to eat! And now I need to 100% change the way we eat in this house! For breakfast: 100 cal whole grain english muffin with 1 TBS strawberry jelly and 1 tbsp Smart Balance spread along with a serving of ww amaretto cheesecake yogurt..seriously love this yogurt! I eat it for dessert some days it is soo good!!!   Then I went to the Y and started my ease into 5K running program and did some strength training..1 hour of walk/run combo and the weight machienes equals 7 points of extra food points (which I am saving up becuase tomorrow is Randy's birthday and we are celebrating at a hibachi hanging onto those points!) Lunch looks like it willbe a cup of potato leek soup that I made yesterday (3 points..YUMMY) along with a fruit salad ()) and pretzle thins...which are so yummy (3 points).  Dinner looks so spectacular and I am sharing it with you.!

A warm entrée-size salad that’s packed with tasty ingredients. It boasts a delicious, homemade bacon-vinaigrette that’s made right in the pan.



  • In a small bowl, combine vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper; set aside.
  • Toss spinach and radicchio in a large serving bowl; set aside.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over low heat; add bacon and cook, stirring frequently, until crispy and browned, about 7 to 8 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate; let drain.
  • Set same skillet over high heat; add mushrooms and onion and cook, stirring often, until onions begin to brown, about 6 to 7 minutes. Add vinegar mixture and chicken; cook, stirring, to heat chicken, about 1 minute. Spoon over spinach mixture and toss to wilt lightly; garnish with bacon, apple and blue cheese. Serve warm. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.

we are using the ready made bacon crumbles for me and regular for the boys :)
