Breakfast/ Weight Watchers

Healthy Banana Muffins

I am so happy to share this healthy banana muffin recipe with you guys.  Only one tiny problem – I said they were three smart points, but they are actually four – I forgot to add the two eggs to the recipe on the WW app, but still, these are a winner!

But first, can I talk about how empty the train parking lot is because everyone took the week off?!

I knew I was going to be having a kind of picky plate for breakfast yesterday and picked up these two hardboiled eggs at Walgreen’s of all places – only $1.32 including tax.  Word on the street is that eggs are going to be zero points on the new Weight Watchers plan, but these two egg cost 3 points.

Um, I may have not eaten breakfast until 11:30 – 2 ounces Canadian bacon (love) 1 point, the 4 point muffin, a 1 point cheese stick, the eggs with hot sauce (duh) and fruit.  I could probably eat that breakfast every day and not get sick of it.

I had so much work and so little time.  It was one of those days where every ten minutes someone would say “hey Beth, can you do this?”  At one point I felt like I was going to cry it was just too much.  But, I brushed it off like I do and just pushed through.  But I do have to laugh at this Snapchat filter 😀

Since I ate breakfast so late, lunch was at around 4:45.  This kind of tasted like ass.  I attempted to make a veggie fried rice, but the zucchini and carrot zoodles I bought were over a week old and didn’t taste that good.   Oh how I miss Tony’s fried rice!

The kadults went out to dinner, so I made this super quick quesadilla for dinner – two low carb flour tortillas (7), 2 ounces of beef (2) spinach and Pam fried to make it crisp.  I chopped up a 1 point cheese stick for the cheese.

I had to share this picture below.  I’ve been blog friends with Rhonda for years.   She used to blog at I Dine Alone – she and her husband had very different tastes but that wasn’t going to stop her for making food that she liked for dinner.  I loved all her recipes!  Anywho, we are Instagram foods as well – and just so happens she has two Boston Terriers as well – and when I did a story on Instagram of me coming home to the dogs last night, her dogs heard Rummy and Roman on the phone and were trying to find the dogs – so cute!

Okay – so back to the muffins!  Can we talk about this Bolthouse Farms plant milk for a second?   I will be honest, that I don’t think that I would drink a glass of this, but I love it in my coffee and in baking.

I normally use plain Chobani in my muffin recipes, but only had coconut, so used that – love!

And because I was using coconut yogurt, I had a partially opened can of light coconut milk and added 1/4 cup of that to the batter, and when I finished mixing the wet ingredients, the batter looked thick like banana pudding.

I can’t wait to make a batch of these again.  

What are your plans for Thanksgiving?  I am going to my sisters house, so I am not cooking that much.  In fact, other than bringing rolls, I won’t be cooking anything else because I am bringing a charcuterie board for the appetizer.  It feels weird that I haven’t been planning all the food for the last two weeks!  

Hannah is going to be grilling a turkey for Jacob.  His grandma is not doing well so they are going to stick close to home.  Luckily I am not leaving for my sisters until later afternoon, so I may have to be of assistance.   I am hoping I can get some of the leftover turkey for the weekend though!

Happy Wednesday – make it a great day!

    Happy Thanksgiving Biz – enjoy your family time! A turkey on the grill sounds like a big undertaking for Hannah – hope you get some leftovers. Are you off on Friday? If so, don’t you kind of want to sneak in the office and just finish your work in peace! Love that snapchat filter!!That’s what I feel like sometimes. Lots of work is good for job security, but can be bad for our emotional health sometimes:)

    Like mother like daughter. I have seen you do some marvelous things with a turkey breast on the grill. You know I’m not a fan of the snap chat but that one fit the mood and made me laugh. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
