Weight Watcher Wednesday
I wish I had a great recipe to share - but instead I'm going to share a couple of my food ideas that are quick and easy.
Schwan's Herb Garlic Potato & Vegetable Blend - I LOVE these veggies! They have a great taste, don't have the texture of yucky frozen veggies (I generally don't love frozen veggies), and quick. I put them in a skillet with some olive oil and they take about 7 minutes to cook up (from frozen). I have several bags of these in my freezer for those days when I really need to get to the grocery store for fresh fruits/veggies - but just don't want to. They are 1 pt for 1 cup.
Smart Ones or Lean Cuisine frozen meals - I have a stock of these in my freezer when I am just not in the mood to cook, or when the family is eating something I probably shouldn't eat. I also have them for lunch a couple times a week. I watch for the sales and stock up then.
Schwan's Light Chicken Marco Polo - This is only 3 points and has high protein and it TASTY! Add a salad and some fruit - yummo! (I can't find a picture of these online...which makes me worry that they won't be carrying them anymore - yikes!)
Ok - so there you have it. I like pre-made foods - they make life easier. Sure - fresh stuff is great - but sometimes it just works out to have stuff on-hand in the freezer.
