Welcome back to another What I Eat in a Day on Weight Watchers. My hope is to give you inspiration as to how I spread out my points throughout the day. I love making great food that tastes awesome and keeps me satisfied.
Breakfast – Protein Oatmeal
This first meal is super easy and takes 2 minutes to make.
In a bowl add 1/2 cup oats, 3/4 cups unsweetened almond milk, 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder (I used Safe & Fair Brand), 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1 tablespoon hemp seeds. Stir well. Microwave for 1.5 minutes.
Remove from microwave, let stand for 2 minutes. Add a banana and a drizzle of sugar free pancake syrup and a few almonds. This bowl was 11 personal points on my Weight Watcher plan.
Lunch – Taco Soup
The soup I made today I’ve made versions of for over 15 years. The original recipe came from a former co-worker of mine Kathy. She would make it for friends and family and they would ask for the recipe and then I made it, my sister, and we shared it. We joked it was the soup that was sweeping the nation.
I’ve changed it around over the years, basically calling whatever leftover protein I have (chicken, ground beef, plant based beef, ground turkey, vegetables I have on hand and Kettle & Fire Bone broth – you can come up with a delicious soup! (I am a #kfpartner of Kettle & Fire – use my code JENNCOOKS for 20% off your order!

Dinner! Hamburger with French Fries!
My husband and I grilled out burgers over the weekend. So dinner was ready in a flash! I heated up the burgers, added a slice of Sargento Sharp cheddar cheese, brioche bun, pickles, frozen crinkle fries and 2 clementines. My dinner came in at 14 personal points.
That’s a Wrap!
