First of all, today was my very first weigh in after joining Weight Watchers on-line and really keeping track of points. I love the on-line version, its so easy to enter in what you eat, save foods as favorites and I love the recipe builder where you enter all the ingredients of a recipe and it will tell you how many points it is. For some reason, counting points vs. counting calories is so much easier for me! Are you ready???? Drum roll please……….I lost 4 pounds this week! Wahoo!! SO, I would say that’s a good start for me! Hopefully I can keep it going!!
Now on to today’s post!
I really wanted to make my sister’s roasted red pepper soup but when I got home, I realized I didn’t have quite all the ingredients, so I just kind of made my own!
Here’s my 0 point soup:
4 cups chicken broth
1 green pepper, charred on the stove, remove seeds and put it in the soup, (do not remove the blackened part)
1 garlic clove
1 medium russet potato, peeled and chopped
1 jalapeno (seeded and chopped)
In a medium pot, just cook all the veggies until they are soft. Then I transferred it to the blender and pureed the whole thing.
It was spicier than I thought it would be, so maybe next time I would use only half the jalapeno!
I made a low carb pita turkey pastrami with lite swiss cheese, broccoli slaw, honey mustard and pickles. That turned out to be 7 points, so I decided to cut it in half for 3.5 points
Accessorizing my lunch, was 1 kiwi, a few sugar snap peas, a pile of green beans and my soup. 4.5 points for all this food! I was super stuffed after all this!
What low calorie/low point filling lunches do you eat??
