The only thing I did not get in today was my activity and oil. I don't take multi-vitamins. I get enough from the foods I eat.
The seaweed soup came from my mom's house. She literally makes a big bucket of the stuff! It's seaweed and mussels. It's in soup form and made with mostly water with a bit of chicken broth and clam juice. It's so good! It's probably not even that many points, but I wanted to add a point for each cup just in case.
The half a bell pepper was 9 points and worth every one of them! I used 80% lean ground beef, 1/2 cup of rice, stewed tomatoes and 2/3 cup of shredded colby cheese. I could have had two, but was full after the first one. Three months ago, I would have automatically put a whole pepper on my plate. Today, I was full after eating half, so I stopped. I am really proud of myself. I ended the evening with a nice cup of steamed milk with a teaspoon of decaf coffee. Yumm!
I have been looking for some recipes so I can get another one of my goals down. I am leaning toward making a new side dish for a meal. I will probably give it a go on Sunday.
I have to travel again next week. I will be home late two nights, so dinner will either have to be packed in the car or something light when I get home. I did pretty well this week, so we shall see.
I am off to read more blogs!
