What I Eat in a Day: WW Freestyle Part 9

What I Eat in a Day: WW Freestyle Part 9

Hey look people, I go to Vegas in like 3 weeks and I kinda (kinda = a lot) slacked off for the past 6 months since booking the trip… which means it’s MF CRUNCH TIME! Time to get strict, time to get serious, time to put on a thong bikiniiiiii baby! Let’s do this!

Breakfast

I’ll never be someone who can cut out carbs completely, I am just not that bitch.. but I feel like I would definitely benefit from not eating carbs with everyyyyyy meal, ya know? I think breakfast is the easiest meal to make low carb, so I started there!

Sun dried tomato, arugula & goat cheese omelet - 3sp

.5 oz sun-dried tomatoes (drained from oil) - 2sp

.5 oz crumbled goat cheese - 1sp

3 eggs - 0sp

salt & pepper - 0sp

The omelet making process is pretty self explanatory, I sauté the sun-dried tomatoes for maybe 30 seconds while I scramble and salt & pepper the eggs. I swear sautéing them makes them so much more flavorful. Add the arugula, stir, add the eggs & cook that baby up.

For the not so great omelet makers, I got some tips! 1. Scrambled eggs are just as good, save the stress of trying to get a perfect flip (been there!!!) 2. Make a big batch in a baking dish, kinda like a frittata. Perfect for meal prep!

As always, feel free to add/omit anything you’d like. You can really throw in as many veggies as you want to bulk it up. I definitely could have gone with 2 eggs on this because 3 was a lot and kept me full past my usual lunch time.

Coffee - 0sp

8 oz Cafe Bustelo over ice

As always, I brew a pot of Cafe Bustelo on Sunday night and have lovely, beautiful, life saving iced coffee every morning! Major money saving tip!

Lunch

I’ve been all about a crock pot meal lately. I just can’t be bothered to stand in a 400 degree kitchen all day. All I gotta do is throw it in and check on it in a few hours and voila, lunch is ready.

Teriyaki Chicken Bowls - 6sp

crock pot teriyaki chicken - 2sp

1/2 cup brown jasmine rice - 4sp

air fryer broccoli - 0sp

Teriyaki chicken- cut 3-4 chicken breast into bite size pieces, season with garlic salt, pepper, and paprika, brown on both sides, add chicken into crock pot with 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce, 1/4 cup low sodium teriyaki sauce (I use Kikkoman for both), sriracha or garlic chili sauce, minced garlic and chopped green onion. Cook on low for 2 hours. Once done I removed the chicken and kept the sauce separate to drizzle on top. Makes 5 servings - 2 sp each.

Brown jasmine rice - cook rice as usual, fry in pan with your choice of veggies.

Air fryer broccoli- spritz broccoli with olive oil spray, season with garlic salt, cook on 400 for 5-7 minutes.

I’ve come to realize I need to really fill up on lunch because I honestly can’t fight those 3 o’clock munchies and will eat a whole roll of ritz or something random like that. This meal has been keeping me full til 5:30-6:00 when it’s time for dinner.

Dinner

You guys know I like to stick to home cooking when I’m trying to be good but that doesn’t mean that all take out options are unhealthy. I tried Sweetgreen for the first time a couple months ago and I loveeee it. They have a menu with already created salads and bowls or you can go down the line and create your own meal. I go a little crazy when I pick my own things, so I usually stick to the menu.

Elote Bowl - 16sp

Roasted corn + peppers, tomatoes, shredded cabbage, cilantro, local goat cheese, tortilla chips, spicy sunflower seeds, warm quinoa, organic arugula, with lime cilantro jalapeno vinaigrette.

*not sure the breakdown of points for every item WW app lists entire bowl as 16sp*

I can’t even tell you how delicious this salad is.. you need to get to a Sweetgreen right now and try it. There’s just something about a salad that someone else makes for you that is just so yummy.. like why can’t I make this at home and it be this delicious?

16 points is usually a lot higher than I usually go for one meal, but i’m okay with spending 16 of my precious points on this bad boy. The salad is so big that sometimes I don’t even finish it. A bonus is that everything is fresh, local and mostly organic.

That’s all kids! I finished the day using 25 smart points, so 1 over my daily 24, but I’m cool with that! If you really didn’t want to go over, you could always make breakfast or lunch less points. Also, I kinda don’t mention in these posts, but I literally chug water all day long. I know it does amazing things for your skin, body, and overall health but I really just drink so much cause I’m a thirsty gal!

Hope you all enjoyed this post, you know I always love writing these what I eat in a day’s! See you all next time!

xo, Nina
