Guys, I’ve been waiting for this snow storm all winter! 

We were supposed to head upstate to visit my family this weekend, but the impending snow storm has us firmly parked at home. I don’t know the last time we spent 48 hours in our house without leaving, so this is going to be an adventure!

In my head I’m thinking of cozy movie watching on the couch, roasting something aromatic and delicious in my oven, and just generally snuggling up with Mr. Big.

The reality is: this weekend could completely derail ALL the progress I’ve made in 2019. Not a lot of activity or movement, convenient access to a kitchen full of snacks – this could be bad.

Which is why I’ve decided: this snowstorm is NOT an excuse to give up on myself for two days.

My Goals for the Snowstorm are:

  • 1 gallon of water daily
  • 8 hours of sleep nightly
  • 2 Aaptiv workouts with the WW app
  • No carb-y snacks – keeping it to whole fruits and veggies (and maybe some tzatziki)
  • Honest tracking ALL weekend long

 

What about you? How are you staying on track through the snowstorm (this one or another)?

Zero Point Breakfast Sausage!

I love breakfast. I love everything about a savory breakfast – toast, runny yolks, flavorful bacon or sausage… But MAN, I find it hard to spend 3-6 WW Points on breakfast meats.

Enter: the zero point breakfast sausage! 

I found this delicious recipe for sausage seasoning on Tastes of Lizzy T and it got me thinking: if I added this seasoning to 99% FF ground chicken or turkey, I could easily make breakfast sausage AT HOME.

I made up the seasoning as directed. I used dried minced garlic and onion, as well as partially freeze-dried parsley, so I’m storing it in a tupperware container in our fridge. I don’t imagine it’s going to last very long wherever it is! 

I added 2 Tbsp of the seasoning to 6oz 99% FF ground turkey, and took time to ensure it was well blended into the turkey.

I formed the turkey into flat patties because I wanted to make breakfast sandwiches, but you could easy fry the whole batch and make loose sausage crumbles if you prefer.

I sauteed the patty with a little fat-free cooking spray and added it to a breakfast sandwich with two eggs and fresh arugula, with two slices of whole wheat 45-calorie bread. A super filling 4 WW Point breakfast!

What do you think? Would you add this to your meal prep?
