I’m in a funk today, friends.
Yes, I know it’s Friday and the weekend is tomorrow and it’s almost Christmas and yay blah blah, but today was just a weird day. Work stuff + headache = funky Liz. And not the good kind of funky.
And now that I’ve aired my grievances, let’s talk about food! So, I love sandwiches. Revolutionary, right? People love sandwiches, so I thought I would talk about how I do sandwiches on Weight Watchers. Because we all know bread is the DEVIL. (Seriously – bread, why must you tempt me so?)
A typical Liz sandwich:
Sandwich thin — 2 points
Sliced turkey — 1 point
String cheese — 1 point
Spinach — 0 points
Hummus — 2 points or Mustard — 0 points
A totally cheap sandwich! (Cheap points-wise, that is. I think of my points as a budget. It’s helpful.) And this little ditty is pretty delicious – it’s no Jimmy John’s Beach Club, but it’s good! I string my string cheese and drape it across the sandwich. I know this sounds a little weird, but I love it. You can also get fat free slices of cheese that are only 1 point and actually taste fairly good.
If I have one of these skinny sandwiches for lunch, plus an apple, some carrots with hummus, maybe some almonds, grapes, and a piece of dark chocolate, it is seriously satisfying and quite healthy!
That’s my Friday wisdom for you. I hope everyone has a glorious weekend! And here’s to me getting out of this funk…
