A Shiny Gold Star Day

September 9, 2009

9-9-09_breakfastThis pictures doesn’t look very appetizing but it didn’t taste too bad. I don’t want to gross anyone out with too many details so let’s just say I’ve been having some pains lately and my diet would benefit from some more fiber. Super Seed by Garden of Life was recommended to me and I’m trying it out. So far I really like it. It has a nice cinnamon flavor. You can add it to anything. Today for breakfast I added it to a cup of yogurt. 5 points is a great way to start off my day.

I have a class tonight at 5 p.m. and I need to make dinner for the family early. I’m trying to plan ahead so that I don’t end up going through drive-through at the last minute. I also have a bunch of tomatoes I need to use up soon before they go bad.

Six Inch flour tortilla

Non-fat cooking spray

1 tsp. Garlic powder

1/4 cup grated cheese

1 tomato, sliced

dried basil


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the tortilla on a baking sheet and spray with non-fat cooking spray. Sprinkle with the garlic powder then arrange the tomatoes evenly around the tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese and a dash of dried basil. Bake until the cheese just melts, 6 to 8 minutes. 7 pts.

Surprisingly this was a hit with my family. The kid’s usually hate anything with this much tomato in it but I got rave reviews tonight.

gold-star And here is my shiny gold star reward I promised myself yesterday for having an on-program day. Good job me! Tomorrow if I stay within my point range and I journal and blog what I eat then I will reward myself with something glittery. I need the extra motivation right now. Starting over is tough.
