Not sure about you guys but I find it helpful to see what other WW members eat.  I’ve been practicing with lighting as I prepare random quick meals.  Thought it would be useful to post some pretty pics that also give a glimpse of some of my eats.  They’re relatively quick (<20 min).  The recipes for anything I’ve baked is on the Recipe page. Check ’em out!  Check out EatingWell for incredible FALL recipes for all of those fresh fruits and veggies you buy at this season’s local farmer’s markets. Also, I’ll post some pics from the farmer’s markets and various Fests I’ve attended. Enjoy 🙂

Breakfast

Red Quinoa cooked in Almond milk and vanilla, topped with 1/2 banana, chopped mixed nuts, cinnamon, and honey

whole farm fresh egg in sliced red bell pepper

slice of onion and tomato filled with low fat cheese and egg beaters, with sauteed mushrooms and spinach

Lunch

Buffalo chicken salad. Chopped celery, grape tomatoes, matchstick carrots, and blue cheese yogurt dressing. Served with morning star buffalo chicken and two zucchini pancakes

turkey chili (see recipe page) with salsa con queso, low fat colby jack, 1 tbsp guac, tomato and cucumber salad w lime spritz

Dinner

Whole wheat garlic penne topped with asparagus tips & red pepper flake and coarse salt


eggplant parm (boxed – will check freezer for brand) on a 100 calorie submarine roll, Alexias roasted sweet potatos and carrots, garden salad w blue cheese yogurt dressing

Turkey chili – see recipe page

Lean Cuisine Chicken alfredo, Alexia’s mixed veggies, 2 sweet potato patties

“Cowfredo” Vermicelli with 2 wedges of melted Laughing cow cheese (garlic and herb flavor), shopped Quorn chicken patty

Desserts

Almonst Fat Free blueberry Key Lime Pie


Sweet potato fries with spiced reduced fat maple sour cream

Red Velvet cupcakes with buttercream frosting…made these for ‘baby’sister

These were incredible! I tweaked a few recipes to perfect a very low fat Pumpkin Spice/walnut cupcake with pumpkin spice reduced fat frosting, topped with toffee and dusted with cinnamon. These were a total hit with my sister’s housemates!

    Wow all of this looks so good… I always forget you can do healthy meals without making them feel healthy! Tell me more about these cowfredo noodles… Are they real noodles? Or does the cowfredo apply only to the laughing cow cheese sauce? Either way, I’m def using the cow cheese sauce on rice noodles. Great post!!

    Hey, Jenn. “cowfredo” consists of noodles of your choice, about one-two cups worth, combined with 1-2 wedges of laughing cow cheese. I was in the mood for alfredo but didn’t want to load the calories on so i figured hey, why not…break out the cow. I find that the laughing cow just doesn’t melt well. I have to combine two wedges in a separate bowl with a bit of milk (1/2 tbsp?), and a little bit of butter/substitute. I put this in the microwave for about one minute and stir every 30 sec until “creamy”. 🙂
