Weight Watcher Corner

My weight this week did not go down again.  I gained .4 pound.  I followed the points and all the guidelines but still didn't loose any weight for two weeks in a row. Decided to cut down on the fruits eaten and see if that makes a difference.  Suprising to me, by cutting down the fruits in my diet,  my weight has already gone down .5 pound in two days.  It is possible I have eaten too much fruit (apples, pineapple, watermelon, and strawberries.) The most fruits are 0 points with eaten but for me it may be something I have eaten too much of the past several weeks. Plan to cut down on how much fruit is eaten each day. Fruit won't be cut out of the diet but just less per day.

This week I am using vegetable recipes I have used in the past. There are tomatoes and other veggies available at the stores. I have a friend that has been giving me tomatoes and other veggies from his garden. These recipes are ones I have used before, will use the vegetables on hand, and plan to use this week.

I enjoy fixing chunks drizzled with oilive oil and baked until crispy in the oven.  This week I added a little lime juice, salat and pepper. Mixed them together with the 2 Tablespoons of olive oil.  I tried this with tomato wedges, yellow squash and zucchini squash. It was very good.  I also tried 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon fat free Italian dressing.  It was very good on squash and tomatoes but didn't like it on potatoes. 

I have an indoor Wolfgang Puck reversable griddle/grill. I first marinated them with the olive oil and Italian dressing. Tried the zucchini, squash and tomatoes on the grill.  Liked it better than baked in the oven. It seem to take a shorter time than when baking in the oven. The grilled veggies had grill lines on them and  whether that made a difference or not, it did to me. It was only 2 points for 4 servings.
