Thanks for stopping by! Every Monday I’m posting a meal hack to encourage healthier eating and weight loss. For more ideas click on What’s on My Plate or the series graphic at the end of this post.
I’ve been bulking lunches up with fruits and vegetables (when I’m not eating a straight salad) to keep points low, and my stomach fuller, for longer. I’ve cut out most breads at meal time with the exception of One Bun Folded Flats I found at Costco when I need a carb fix. The Hot & Sweet Mustard from Trader Joe’s drizzled on top makes this one of my favorite lunches.
Open Face Sandwich
I purchased the One Bun, and lunch meat at Costco. The cabbage and mustard I found at Trader Joe’s. Any of these items can be substituted for comparable point products. You can always lower the points by selecting 1 slice of lunch meat (1 point) instead of 2 (3 points).
What you need:
- 1 – One Bun Folded Flat - 3 points
- 2 slices Columbus Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Breast (reduced sodium, 98% Fat Free) – 3 points
- Handful of green shredded cabbage – 0 points
- Hot & Sweet mustard for drizzling – negligible
6 points per serving (4 if only using one slice of lunch meat)
Fruit & Cool Whip
Most fruits won’t cost you any points on the WW program, but sometimes it’s nice to add a little sweetness with a dollop of Cool Whip.
2 tbsp = 1 point
Happy Labor Day! Celebrate with good food choices (or your extra weekly points) today!
