And The Green Goes On…

Or so it seems by looking at my photos today! First I have to mention the fact that I had quite a few comments yesterday encouraging me to try a green smoothie.  Ok, You’ve got me.  This weekend I’m going to experiment with one and I’ll let you all know next week if we (Me and my Magic Bullet) survive!

Wednesday morning I started out by making egg salad.  Ralph was a little disappointed last week when I made chicken salad for him and kept the egg salad to myself.  So it’s for both of us this week.  Gotta keep him happy!

Lots of celery chopped up.  It’s actually Ralph’s idea, he loves it in egg salad, chicken salad, etc.  It’s a great idea.  It makes the eggs go farther, adds crunch so you eat it more slowly, tastes good and is good for you.  Why not add it.

Eggies cooling in the sink post boil.

Yummy lunch… 1/4 cup of low-fat cottage cheese, 1/4 cup of egg salad on Romaine topped with Mrs. Dash’s Fiesta Lime, one of my favorites.

Everyone was talking about green tea yesterday on WIAW and I decided to have some for my afternoon tea.  I have several varieties and since it’s supposed to be good for me, why not.  I already have it so it didn’t cost me anything!  This was Lipton’s pomegranate green tea.  Very tasty.  Please take note of my lovely dragonfly cup that my sister, Ele gave me, quite a few years ago now.  It’s one of my favorites!

Dinner was another of my combos.  Whole wheat pasta, zucchini, yellow squash, onion, garlic, plum tomato, red bell pepper and low-fat cottage cheese.

All chopped up and cooking…

And cooking some more…

All the steamy goodness!  I love using the cottage cheese in something like this.  I add 1/2 a cup and I get 14 grams of protein for only 2 Points on Weight Watchers.  It makes it all cheesy and gooey as if I used a higher Point cheese.  One of my faves!

We have a few things on the agenda today so we’ll be out and around.  No telling where we’ll end up but I think lunch will be involved!  We’ll see where we land!

Happy Thursday!

  1. wow, I think I’m coming to your house for lunch from now on!

  2. Hooray for green smoothies! I’m a totally addicted. Start with a handful of spinach – you’ll never know the difference! 🙂

  3. I think you’ll like green smoothies, but make sure you start off with a lightly flavoured green like spinach or romaine, otherwise it might be a bit bitter. I also love courgette in my smoothies.
    I love green tea too 🙂

  4. I’ve been hard boiling a lot of eggs lately. I love celery in egg salad. I also do drink a lot
    Of green tea. Two I really like are zen by razor
    Tea and constant comment green by bigelow.

    • Hi Zo! I didn’t know that Bigelow made constant comment green!!! I love CC. In fact I was given a box for Christmas and just found another I already had. Guess I could just mix the CC with plain green in a pot. That sounds like a plan!
