Zero-Point Lunch

IMG_4084

I’m giving this new Weight Watchers Freestyle plan a test drive before my official start date of January 1st.  This is the dish I mentioned in my previous post, An Unexpected Use.

I just open a can of black beans and rinsed them, threw in a package of thawed, frozen corn and a can of Ro-tel tomatoes. I sprayed a pan with Pam and cooked a couple of eggs with a little salt and pepper. I’m not much of an egg fan, but I must say this was good. If I’m going to eat an egg, it has to be cooked solid all the way through. I had a cup and a half of the bean/corn/tomato concoction and the two eggs for lunch. The whole thing was zero Weight Watchers points.

My worst vice when dieting is not going to the store. That’s what always throws me off. I’m a hermit, and I hate going to the store. Before January 1st, I’m going to plan my meals for the week and go to the store.

I’ve been working from home since Hurricane Harvey. Our building took in eight feet of water in the basement and knocked out our power. It has been over four months since I’ve been to the office. We’re supposed to go back the week of the 1st, so I’ll begin the new Weight Watchers Freestyle program the week I get back to the office. That could be a good thing since I won’t be sitting at home with a fridge downstairs. I work in a large, beautiful office complex on a lake where I can take walks at lunch time. I can also walk up and down the stairs since I’m on the 8th floor.

I’m looking forward to figuring out how to make the most of all the new zero points foods. I live with my daughter. We are both pretty great cooks, so I’m going to look at this as an adventure. I currently take several medications and supplements. It would be great to be able to reduce the meds. I’ll keep the supplements.

Dinner tonight will be rotisserie chicken, Instant Pot potatoes, and veggies.  I haven’t used any points yet today, so potatoes it will be.
