Bombay Bowl Grilled chicken, veggies, rice and Tikka - 15P+
Lobster Ravioli - I bought the ravioli brand and buitoni light alfredo sauce from Target for 8P+. Alfredo sauce was good but PASS on the pre-made ravioli.
This pad thai version came from iowagirleats. I used low sodium soy sauce instead of regular and couldn't get over the smell of it in the dish, it was very strong, and not in a good way. BUT for some reason it didn't smell as bad the next day and tasted 100,000x better. I followed her recipe to a T except I omitted the snap peas and used 1 cup asparagus instead of 1/2 cup. I tried extra firm tofu for the first time and just fell in love with it, I want to eat it all the time now! Serves 4 at 10P+ per serving.
This photo looks very similar to the one above it but the sauce mixture is different. I adapted it from Cooking Light. This is my go-to sauce that I normally stick to. You get more for 10P+ in this dish than the one from iowagirleats but they both taste good.
Ingredients for 1 HUGE serving: 10P+
- 2oz uncooked pho noodle - soak it in boiling water so the noodles soften up a bit. 5P+
- 1 cup asparagus - 0
- 1 cup coleslaw mix (I didn't think pad thai would taste good with this but it adds so much volume and doesn't taste bad at all, you can barely taste it) - 0
- 2oz raw ground chicken breast (99/1) - 1P+
- 2oz cubed extra firm tofu (LOVE THIS!) 2p+
- 2 tsp oil: one tsp to stir fry asparagus and coleslaw, the other to cook meat and tofu for 2P+. Honestly, you only need 1 tsp to cook veggies and a little oil spray for meat & tofu.
1 tsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
1 tsp cane sugar or brown sugar
1 tsp garlic chili paste (best stuff ever!)
Quickie BBQ sandwich - 9P+
Rudi's whole wheat bun - 4P+
2 oz cooked ground chicken breast (99/1) - 2P+. I would have eaten 3oz cooked but couldn't fit it on the burger. See the extra meat in the background?!
A quality slice of cheddar jalepeno cheese - 2P+
2 TBSP Annie's spicey chipotle BBQ sauce - 1P+
I used to buy a tall, non-fat vanilla iced latte 4x a week and each time I spent $3.65. Now I just make my own. It tastes just as good for much less $$, and for fewer pts! One 8oz instant coffee (before you add ice) + 1 tsp vanilla syrup and a little almond milk is 2P+ VS 4P+ when you buy it from a starbucks barista.
I love cantaloupe now that I know how to pick it! The best way to spot a delicious cantaloupe is by smelling it, that's it. If it smells sweet, then you know you're good to go. Also, the rind should be a yellow/pale orange color. Stay away from green rinds unless you don't plan on eating it for a couple days. For me, one serving is 1/2 a cantaloupe. 0P+.
I also ate cheetos throughout the week. 32 pieces for 4P+ sounds a little high but fortunately, I was able to control my urge and ate 1 serving a day only. :)
