Tuesday’s Treats — 11/28/17

This week’s treats are either low/no SmartPoints or what I call “worth it”.

Low SmartPoints Treats/Snacks

The following treats/snacks are low in SmartPoints and are SUPER filling!  I’ve already started to enjoy them this week, but I’ll continue to enjoy them in future weeks as well.

  • Seriously Spicy Hummus (2 SP) + Veg
  • Mini Pretzels (3 SP)
  • Pumpkin Muffins (3 SP)
  • String Cheese (3 SP) with Fruit
  • Apple slices with 1 TBSP Peanut Butter (3 SP)
  • Protein Shake (1 SP) — I use My Protein Impact Whey Protein
  • Dove Dark Chocolate Silky Smooth Almond — 2 pieces (2 SP)
  • Air Popped Popcorn
  • Protein Latte (1 SP) — Mix up protein powder (any flavor) with 2 oz water add to a hot cup of coffee
  • Protein Hot Cocoa — (2 SP) — heat up 6 oz almond milk, mix 2 oz cold almond milk with chocolate protein powder, add the two together and sweeten with Splenda to taste.  Need more chocolate?  Add cocoa powder!


Zero SmartPoints Treats/Snacks

I’m so excited that the 2018 Program has expanded the 0 points food list.  The wider variety of “free” foods means I can plan my meal around these foods without worrying!  Then, I can spend my points on starches and fats.

  • Plain, Fat free Greek Yogurt + Berries
  • Hard Boiled eggs
  • Canned Fruit (packed in water/juice not syrup)
  • Sugar free jello with Light Whipped Topping
  • Grilled Chicken on bed of lettuce
  • Tuna Lettuce Cups
  • Mashed black beans layered with Salsa and Plain Greek Yogurt <— this layer dip is 0 points, so you can use all your points on chips!
  • Turkey Chili — lean ground turkey, canned diced tomatoes, Black beans, kidney beans, and chicken broth with onions and spices — this filling dish is now 0 points!
  • Diet coke — I know soda is terrible for you, and I’m trying to give it up, so I’ll only have a glass as a treat… *addicted*


Worth it Treats

Sometimes you just need to Treat Yo Self!  Here are a few planned in treats that I’ll be enjoying this week:

  • Coffee with real 2% milk — 1 SP (worth it!)
  • 1/2 Slice of Carrot Cake (6 SP)
  • 1/2 Slice of Red Velvet Cake (7 SP)
  • Oven Fries (5 SP)
  • Dinner Out — Grilled Chicken (0 SP), Side Salad (0 SP), Ranch dressing (5 SP), Steamed Broccoli (0 SP), and Splitting a dessert with hubby (15 SP)



Non-Food Treats

As always, I’ll be incorporating some non-food related treats into my week as a way of caring for myself.  Here are some of the ways I’ll be treating myself this week:

  • At home manicure
  • New Topcoat for my at home manicures
  • New AirWick scents for Holidays (apple cinnamon, Mahogany, and Pine!)
  • Finish k-Drama Series “Let’s Eat”
  • Movie night with hubby
  • NAPS!
  • Crocheting while watching Netflix! (Just not K Dramas, since I’ll have to read the subtitles.  Darn my inability to speak/understand Korean!)
