As I get into week 8...(or is it week 9...I am not sure) of Weight Watchers I realize that my saving grace has been my Go-To foods....low point, quick to prepare meals that I LOVE and am happy to have almost any night.
At this moment I have yet to be tired of them...and I do have them several times a week. I have an underlying fear, however that I will get tired of them at some point. Hopefully some more will materialize.
Right now my two faves are my grilled chicken/eggplant mix stuffed into a tortilla (currently with that delish Green Goddess dressing slathered on it!), a mere 6 point filling, satisfying, flavorful dinner that comes together in less than 15 minutes. The chicken tenderloins (which I always keep on hand) are done in 8 minutes on the old George Foreman, which is ever present on my counter 'cuz we are using it daily. The rest is done stovetop in a pan.
Now while I usually will not cook two meals, one for family and one for me, I will use this often when we are running short on time and I have something quick and very "pointy" for the family that I don't want to eat. Can you tell I just loooove this meal?????
Actually right now I am addicted to those corn tortillas...and I am loving them with lots of things, including the EggBeater breakfast burrito.
My quick to prepare lunch is my grilled eggplant/goat cheese sandwich, only 3.5 points for lunch. The eggplant is 5 minutes in George as well.
With both of these meals being my faves...sometimes I am actually finding I need to add food and snacks to make sure I am getting all of my points!
