Wednesday Menu

Last night I went to the gym and really pumped it out. I haven't had the motivation (AT ALL) to go in the mornings lately, so I went swimming on Monday night and to the actual gym last night. I've been sick (STILL) and it's SO HOT in my apartment and I'm extra lethargic.

I'm still hovering around the same weight - which is fine by me. I always eat healthier during the week anyway, because the routine makes it easier. I like to have breakfast when I get to work, a snack around 12-1, then lunch around 3-4.... I find if I don't do this I'm starvin' like Marvin... 19 points a day is really not that to work with, give or take activity points.

Last night I made two delicious new things. The first - curried cauliflower soup.

1 medium head cauliflower
1 medium onion(s)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp table salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 cup fat-free chicken broth
1 Tbsp curry powder
2 cups orange juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Toss cauliflower and onion with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and place in a roasting pan. Roast for 30 minutes, until well caramelized. Put into a large soup pot and add orange juice, stock, curry powder and check for seasoning. Bring to a boil, turn the heat down and simmer for 15 minutes.
Puree with an immersion blender, or in small batches in a blender.
Reheat just prior to serving.

It really was delicious - and makes 4 big servings at 3 points per serving, according to the recipe builder.

The second thing I made was my own pita chips to serve with salsa, out of a high fibre pita. I can't find it online but I think it was a mr. pita fibre pita. It was 170 cals, 0.5 fat grams and 6 grams of fibre. I sliced it in two, cut into pita chips, sprayed with I can't believe it's not butter spray and sprinkled with salt, and baked at 350° for 7 minutes on one side, and 4 minutes after flipping. Served with some hot salsa... yum yum. Nice late night snack. And you can cut the pita into lots of chips to make you feel like you are actually eating a lot.

Here is today's menu:

cheerios (2)
silk light soy (1)
blueberries (0.5)

chocobran (1)
source yogurt (1)

Lean Cuisine (4)

Then I don't know.
