Today, for breakfast, I was feeling adventurous.  So, I did a small experiment with eggs.


I mixed instant mashed potatoes, egg beaters, and a little whipping cream.  Naturally, I added some mushrooms, onions, and spinach.

This is the result:

It actually came out fine.  I wonder how it would work with real potato.

Skinny Pasta… Konjac Noodles

I did not have my soup ready to have for lunch today, so I had to come up with a plan B.

Plan B involves the pack of “Skinny Pasta” that I have been avoiding since I purchased it.  I’ve already eaten the fettuccine version of the noodles, so I know that they’re not horrible experiments in what the human gut can withstand. (or are they????)  But I had some and I was low on ideas for a healthy lunch.

Today’s lunch consists of:

  • Weight Watchers Skinny Pasta Noodles : 0 Points
  • Left over Smoked Salmon from breakfast: 0 points
  • 2 tbsp Laura’s Cuisine Parsley Pesto:  3 points

I have to admit… it does not look remotely tasty.

Fortunately, it did not taste as bad as it looks.  The dish was saved by good pesto and salmon.  YAY.

Skinny pasta remains as tasteless as ever.  I am convinced that it is probably one of the most bland UN foods around.  It is the Tofu of the pasta world.

I had a small bottle of Red Rock Golden Ginger Ale, so my lunch jumped up to 11 points.

Freestyle Omelette

Today is the day that I start following the new Freestyle plan.  I sat down yesterday and made myself a plan for the week and a backup plan for a crazy week.  The backup plan is mostly just a point limit for the various meals throughout the day so that I can set myself some boundaries when deciding what to eat.

Today’s breakfast is a creation based on the omelette building guide.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of egg beaters: 0 points
  • Sauteed Onions: 0 points
  • Sauteed Mushrooms: 0 points
  • 1 tbsp Cream Cheese: 2 points
  • Smoked Salmon (maybe half an ounce?? i didn’t measure): 0 points

Total Breakfast points: 2

The plan was to include some spinach… but I forgot.

I think next time I will just make it into a scramble.  I’m not very good at folding omelettes into something that resembles an actual omelette.
