Lunch love

Allow me to introduce you to my latest love affair that I'm having at lunch.  So yummy!  Try this...


Take a whole wheat Sandwich Thin (Arnold brand pictured here.  Right now my favorite are the "All Natural Flax & Fiber" ones.)

Spread 1 Tbsp of Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese on it 

Top with a 2 slices of low fat turkey breast or low fat roast beef on it.  (I also get low sodium)

Enjoy!  (6 pts. on WW Plus)

I am absolutely crazy about this and eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner at times.  Simple, and deeeelicious!  Sometimes if I have the extra point and want more cream cheese I add one more Tbsp.


This week I have enjoyed it as well as another new lunch love, introduced to me by my friend Patrice Migliore Viscuso (a friend from bible college days, also a fellow Weight Watcher).  The follow soup has ZERO points.  That's right, nada, zip, ZERO!  I'm a soup lover and eat it even in the summertime.  It really helps me stay on track and I normally make a pot of soup on the weekend and then eat it throughout the week for a few days and also freeze a few containers for weeks that I am too busy to make soup.  On those weeks I pull out a container from my freezer stash.  This week I made two soups, chicken noodle and this one below, and I will alternate eating them for lunch on different days.

Butternut Squash Soup

3 boxes of frozen butternut squash
24 oz. of unsweetened applesauce
1 can of chicken broth

Melt squash on low heat, add other ingredients. You can also sprinkle with things like basil, cinnamon or maybe some chile powder…whatever your taste.

Enjoy these healthy creations that are also quick and easy to make, and join me in watching the pounds disappear.
