Food Blog ~ Saturday ~ first day of simply filling

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Well this week I have decided to try weight watchers other plan... they have two if you didn't know. There is the points system that most people are firmilar with, where you count each food as a certain number of points and stick to an individual points target per day.... then there is another plan where you eat certain foods, called filling foods. You can pretty much eat as much as you want (to the point of fullness but not overly full) of Fruits, Vegetables, skim milk, fat free cheese, Fat free plain yogurt, lean meats and a whole bunch of other foods... you can also have whole wheat pasta, brown rice or potatoes 1 time per day. There is also some other foods that you get per day that aren't simply filling but you don't have to count them... like certain condiments like ketchup and fat free mayo... you can have 2 tsp of olive oil or other healthy oil per day as well because its part of a healthy lifestyle.
You still get your 35 weekly points to spend however you like... so you can still have ice cream or wine or whatever... you just have to count its points value towards your 35 weekly points or whatever activity points you earn.

I have never tried this new plan but I decided to give it a go because it sounded interesting not having to count points at all and being able to eat until your full. The main reason I wanted to try it though was because my husband has really been having a hard time losing weight. He refuses to track his own points and I have tried but I just cant keep up with him and with me.... so this is a good solution for him. Of course he complained all yesterday, even though he was eating..... I think its just because its something new and I guess it feels more like a diet... even though I told him he could eat other things as long as he kept within the weekly points range. He is a pain. lol.

But anyway, I did not find it hard. It took me a few days to plan out a menu because I was trying to work in all filling foods with very few non-filling foods. I did it though, I have a menu for the whole week and I plan to stick to it.

Here is yesterday...
........................................
.

Breakfast: 1 1/2 Cups Oatmeal w/ mixed berry sauce ........ (looked better when it was hot, I ate 1 cup of it at my weight watchers meeting and got full and ate the other 1/2 cup when I got home. It was very good) See Below for Recipe


Lunch: Salad topped with Crab Salad (1/2 cup imitation crab meat, 1 tbls fat free mayo, 1/2 tsp dill weed, 1/2 tsp hot sauce, 1/2 tsp onion & herb mrs. dash, 1/3 diced celery stalk) ..... lettuce, tomato, shredded carrot, thawed frozen peas..... dressing made w/ 1 tbls fat free mayo, 2 tbls plain fat free yogurt, 1/2 tsp ranch dip powder.
(picture does not show dressing)


Snack: 2 pickle spears


Snack: 1/2 can progresso light vegetable soup (actually not a filling food because of ingredient within it, but its zero points so I did not have to count it twards weekly points) ...... 1/2 apple


Dinner: 3oz grilled chicken w/ classico pesto (I counted this as my healthy oil for the day) .... 1 small sweet potato mashed..... grilled egg plant, zucchini, onions & peppers (totally burned on the grill but still pretty good)


Snack: I got one apricot & one nectarine and were going to grill them but my grill was too cool to do it once everything else was cooked so I took them and put them in a small Pyrex dish and put a mixture of 1-2 tbls water, 1 tbls splenda, 1 tsp vanilla extract & 1/2 tsp ground ginger on top of them. Put aluminum foil on top of the bowl and baked it at 350* for around 30 minutes.... so yummy and makes a syrup in the bottom of the bowl

I ate half of that & 1 serving butter almond ice cream... put the syrup on top of the ice cream.... this was the best thing I have had in a long time... OMG it was so good


(4 POINTS)

.................................

WEEKLY POINTS USED: 4
WEEKLY POINTS REMAINING FOR THE WEEK: 31
ACTIVITY POINTS EARNED: 2

.................................

Berry Oatmeal: Cook Quaker Quick oats as directed and then mix with splenda and vanilla extract to taste.... for berry sauce take about 1 cup of mixed frozen berries, but them in a small sauce pan w/ 1-2 tbls water & 1-2 tbls splenda.... heat untill boiling and as berrys thaw mash half of them into the water.... once berrys are hot, remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes.... mixture will thicken. Pour over oatmeal and enjoy

    I could not have stuck to this as long as I have if I was not eating enough. I think that is the biggest problem most people have when trying to lose weight.... being hungry all the darn time and eating food that tastes like cardboard. If my food dosent taste good and look good then I am not satisfied and want to eat more. I had to find a way to eat that would make me happy.... and keep my husband and kids happy too.

There is no good reason for starving yourself when your trying to lose weight... with a little planning and creativity you can work in lots of variety, quantity and quality into your menu!

    actually doing the points I have found that if I stick to my daily points allowance I am at the very lowest range or under what spark people says I need for calories. I usually try to throw a few of my 35 weekly points in each day which puts me around 1500 calories. I have been trying to stick to my daily points the past few days though because I ate up most of my weekly points this past weekend.

    If anyone is wondering how to make the lasagna rolls
Here is how to make it... very simple.

Ingredients
8-10 whole wheat lasagna noodles
1 1/2 cups pasta sauce (I use ragu garden combination sauce)
1 cup part skim or Fat Free ricotta cheese
1 cup part skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 box frozen spinach

1. Boil 8 whole wheat lasagna noodles until tender & drain (I usually make 10 noodles just in case one or two fall apart)
2. mix 1 cup shredded mozzarella, 1 cup ricotta cheese & 1/2 pack thawed and drained frozen spinach (squeeze all the water out of spinach before mixing in)
3. separate cheese mixture into 8 portions.... I usually just press it down in the bowl I mixed it in and then cut it with my spoon like a pie... that way I have 8 equal portions I can just scoop out of the bowl.

4. lay one noodle out, spread 1 portion of cheese up the length of the noodle, then spread a thin layer of sauce (1/8 cup) up the noodle over top of the cheese. Then roll the noodle up and place it spiral side up in a baking dish

5. continue rolling all the noodles. spoon remaining 1/2 cup sauce over each noodle and bake in the oven @ 350* for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes or so.

ENJOY

    most grocery stores I have seen carry it... you can usually find it in the refrigerated section of the deli near where they keep the specialty cheeses and pasta salads and such.

Every store I have shopped at carries it... except the small town stores. Walmart carries it as well.

I shop at sams club frequently and they carry larger containers of it for a better price.... I would try it first though before committing to a large container... some people don't like it.

You can also find recipes online and make your own. All it basically is, is chick peas (garbanzo beans), olive oil and spices ect. You just blend all the ingredients together in a food processor until it makes a paste like substance.

Hope this info helped.

    The lasagna rolls are great because you can really measure how much pasta you are getting, instead of trying to estimate based on slice size. Each roll has the same amount of spinach, cheese and sauce too so its a very portion controlled meal.

Photo Food Journal - Tuesday July 20 - I'm Baaaack!

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Well, I have not posted a food blog in a while now. I geuss I got a little tired of doing it. I have found though I have been nibbling quite a bit.

Yesterday was a particuraly bad day. I ended up nibbling alot and I tracked it all and ended up coming out 11.5 points over my daily target. Ouch!!! After I sat down with my tracker last night and saw that it was a big wake up call. I mean how far am I going over my points each day when Im not tracking all the little nibbles and bites I take here and there. The spoon full of ice cream when I make my hubby a bowl full, the 1/2 a cookie when I'm getting my daughter a snack, the lick of peanut butter when I'm making my son a sandwich! Do I really have any weekly points left over at all? Im sure my saving grace is the fact that I have been exercising my butt off lately... but Im really not doing myself any good if Im going to eat away all the hard work I am putting in.

So Im going to start tracking with pictures again for a while. It keeps me honest and on track and I need that right now. I still have a good few days till my weigh in and I figure I have used pretty much all my weekly points over the weekend so I am going to go ahead and try and stick to my daily points target as close as possible.

And to everyone who missed these... I have herd from quite a few people that they really love to read my food blog.... enjoy !!!

....................

For those of you not firmilar with the weight watchers point system... each food is given a number of points based on how much calories, fat and fiber it has... foods with lower calories and higher fiber have lower points values.

Each person on weight watchers is given a daily number of points they can eat based on things like gender, activity level, height and weight. As you get lower in weight your daily points value goes down.

Each person also gets 35 extra weekly points to use as they wish... you can eat them all at once for a big meal thats higher in calories or you can use them throughout the week... or not at all.

thats the basics.

You are so good about this - I know what you mean...I wasn't really tracking in my intake the past few days at all. Realized it's easy to get caught up in the world of munching. Hey...when are ya gonna go skating again? I'd love to hear about how much you're skills are improving! Pretty soon you'll attempt a Tripel Lutz on skates!! lol...how are the munchkins? Any summer trips ahead for you guys? I'd love to go down south the LA to go to Universal Studios but i's a bit much and since hubby hasn't been working since March..well, you get it. BUT, there are a lot of inexpensive things we can still do together! Maybe a trip to the beach this weekend...now that's my kinda place!

Great blog again..and good for you for sticking with the WW points tracking system if you find that's what works best for ya...MAN...your face is looking AMAZING and beautiful these days!!!!! Your hard work is really paying off. Happy SparkAversary again!!!

    well I switched back to the points system for two reasons... I was tracking both hubby and my calories on spark people and it was alot of work. spark people nutrition tracker is great but a little time consuming, expecially when doing it for two people on two seperate accounts (hubby has different calorie needs than me cause he is a man so I could not use the one tracker for both of us).

My second reason is I have gone back to WW meetings because I want to make my goal and become a lifetime weight watchers memeber. I figured it was only approprate to end my weight loss journey with weight watchers considering I started with them.

    I am so impressed with your blog. I have read about photo food logs in magazines before but I have never seen somebody's in real life. Very cool. I don't do a photo food journal but I swear by my written food journal. I write down everything I eat, I count out every cherry, cracker, etc. and my measuring cups are always ready for use. I don't belong to WW but I track calories. It has allowed me to lose 36 lbs and now hopefully my last 15. Once again thanks so much for sharing this with everyone. It not only looked healthy but also yummy. Yeah to the blueberries. Keep up the good work.
