Pin It I lost again this week! Another pound and a half gone - thanks to the WW Simply Filling Technique (SFT)! I do admit, I'm loving this.
This week my "One Small Change" was to have my usual Pete's Frootique salad, but to make it 100% simply filling (minus the dressing). My salads are truly an adventure when I go to Pete's. Normally they "cost" me 6 points+ when I get the fat free raspberry vinaigrette dressing. On Friday, my challenge was for it (other than dressing) to cost me no weekly points. Challenge accepted. Challenge complete. I left out my usual bacon bits, craisins and feta cheese (sadly) and added extra lean fresh roast beef on top. The beef was so yummy that I ate it first :)
In this little adventure (if I can remember it all!) you will find cucumber, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, chickpeas, beans, eggs, cabbage, mandarin oranges, red onions, cauliflower, broccoli and likely more that I've forgotten. I got the balsamic vinaigrette on the side (this location doesn't have my raspberry). I admit... I did not miss my bacon, craisins and feta....much. Feta really does make the salad :) I think next time I will use a couple of points and get some feta thrown in.
This coming week we were challenged to try something new - a lot of folks were going to try to be adventurous with their salads. I think I've got that task complete already - I'm always being adventurous with salad (not a fan of plain old boring green salad). I'm a big fan of a huge salad that doesn't cost a lot of points - so long as it's got flavour, that is! My new try this week (not necessarily on salad) is passion fruit. I bought one at Pete's on Friday and am going to give it a try - it had better be good for the price I paid! Another try is going to be more challenging... I'm going to a party at someone's house this afternoon and I know there will be nibbles. I want to try to keep my nibbling primarily SFT. Wish me luck!
