To my surprise, after the bitter post about last night's horrible dinner experience, I woke up right away this morning, full of energy and ready to start the day. Too bad I couldn't go to the gym this morning (I am singing a shabbat service in a few minutes, and I don't like to exercise so close to when I sing--I'm planning on hitting the gym this afternoon, no worries.) Instead, I decided to cook myself a huge and hearty yet still low-points breakfast. I threw some diced green pepper and white onion into a pan, sauteed them until they were tender, and then added a few egg whites and scrambled it all. I finished them off with half a piece of Trader Joe's amazing low fat cheddar cheese (what did I do this past year without Trader Joe's? SERIOUSLY.) I sliced a beautiful tomato from the farmer's market and crisped up a Trader Joe's Whole Wheat and Flaxseed tortilla to make some baked tortilla chip like things and that was my breakfast. I am SO FULL right now of protein, whole grains, vitamins and nutrients and feel ready to take on my shabbat service and a busy Saturday.

I ate an entire dinner sized plate full of delicious food for...

4.5 points.

3 egg whites=1 point
1/2 piece of TJ's lowfat cheddar=1 point
1/4 tsp olive oil for sauteeing=0.5 point
1 TJ's Whole Wheat and Flaxseed tortilla=2 points
1/2 green pepper=0 points
1/2 white onion=0 points
1 gorgeous locally grown tomato=0 points

Take that, Growler's!

Yum! That sounds delicious. I think you clearly have no need for restaurants anymore, just a TJ's nearby and a good stove! :)
