After work I stopped over at Whole Foods to pick up a few things and some Cassava Chips that my Mom told me about. Have you ever had Cassava Root? It’s really good boiled in sea salt – it reminds me of a sweeter version of a Yukon Gold Potato. I was excited to try these after she raved about them.
The nutritional stats are not too bad for a “potato chip”.
I portioned some out like The Husband does :) and shared. We both really liked them. They have a sour cream and onion taste surprisingly for “original” flavor. I think it’s the garlic powder.
I really wasn’t hungry for dinner tonight, so I went with a lighter salad and some fruit. I started off slicing up the two beautiful Heirloom Tomatoes that I had picked up at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday. I seasoned them with a little sea slat and freshly ground black pepper.
Then, topped them each with a thin slice of low-fat mozzarella and 3 basil leaves off our plant, chopped. I drizzled a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Blackberry Balsamic with Pear Vinegar.
The result was absolutely amazing! I had four slices
with some watermelon on the side.
I know it wasn’t much for dinner as The Husband teased me about having vegetables and fruit, but, honestly, it was exactly what I was craving. Something light and fresh ~ It definitely hit the spot and allowed me to save room for dessert.
While we ran some errands, we made sure to stop and get a Low-Fat Ice Cream Cone ~ I LOVE these 3 Weight Watcher Point cones and could get them as a treat every day :D
I am off to bed ~ I plan on posting the recipes I’ve been telling you about all week tomorrow and there is a giveaway announcement happening this week (tomorrow or Thursday) that you will definitely want to WIN!
Thanks for all the great things you all say and I always love seeing your messages pop up in my inbox.
See you all in the morning when the week will be 1/2 over – yeah!
