Staying on track was always easier when I turned to soup ( just watch the sodium if you are using canned) ESP good in winter , it can be a hearty lunch or stand in for supper when paired with salad or healthy sandwich /fruitbowl dessert!
Years ago I went to WW (Before the points PLUS) and they just basically had you make your own soup from veggies you like, low sodium LITE chicken broth and some canned tomato and spices ( DELISH!) You could make a lge pot for a few days or freeze some.
If you're not inspired, there are lots of smart, healthy choices nowadays and the beaity is that they are always there in a pinch .. an EZ " go to " food with chicken or turkey on LITE WW bread ( No mayo!) . ( Just skip crackers or white bread and you'll be fine!)
Thanksgiving is upon us and pumpkin pie is a favorite dessert. Why not try a heaping tablespoon of canned pumpkin in your hot oatmeal with a little cinnamon and sweetened to your taste with honey. A half-cup serving of canned pumpkin supplies a staggering 300 percent of the DV for vitamin A from beta-carotene! Happy Thanksgiving!
