Slow Day Sunday

Not too much happening on the diet front today. I am still trying to figure out what to make for supper. I am thinking of Salmon patties and veggies. I am not sure yet.

I am feeling really great now. That weight loss yesterday was just the boost I needed. I get to go grocery shopping again this week and it is funny but I am excited about that too.

Today I am making WW Core Warm Chunky Apple "pie".

8 servings
10 large apples
1 cup Splenda
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp cinnamon

Peel and cut apples into chunks and place in a crockpot.
In a small mixing bowl mix splenda, water and cinnamon.
Pour over apples.
Cook on Low setting for 4-5 hours stirring occasionally.

Oh and Iportion is playing tip tag. so my tip is to find alternatives to your biggest cravings. I used to crave a lot of sweets. I have found applesauce and yogurt is a good alternative for me. Other good alternatives are the WW Core chocolate pancakes I made and the apple *pie* I am making now. Rather than fighting the craving, I realize that a part of me will always want that little bit of sweet, so I find some that are on plan. My friend who is doing low calorie craves salty foods. Good alternatives for her are Smart Pop and Crispy minis.

Mmmmm that sounds delicious. I wonder how I would figure out the points and calories for that. Maybe I could just do 2 apples and then split it in half for my husband and I as a treat. He does points, and I count calories. Then it would be probably 1 pt for him that way, and like 75 calories for me.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
