I'm going to try and log on every day to record what I have eaten and any recipes I think are good enough to share. I will probably weigh myself daily but will only post weight loss once a week. I'm following the Weight Watchers Flex Point Plan so I'll record how many points foods are and will include point values in all my recipes.

1-12-10 Daily Points :30

Breakfast -
2pts Bagel
1pt Cream Cheese
1pt Special K Crackers
1pt Blueberries

Snack -
2pts 100 calorie snack pack
0pts large carrot

Lunch -
2pts Chicken and Dumpling Soup

Snack -
2pt 90 calorie Quaker oats snack
3pt crackers
1pt WW snack cake

Dinner -
3pts Turkey cutlet
2pt southwestern corn and tomatoes
3pts oven baked potatoes

Points Used : 23 (I'm still stuffed from dinner but I'm hoping to get some more in before bed)

Recipes from today:

Southwest Corn & Tomatoes (taste of home healthy cooking recipe cards)
2 WW points
1pk frozen corn, thawed
5 plum tomatoes, seeding and chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
3 gralic cloves, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp salt
Mix corn, tomatoes, onion, jalapenos and garlic. Drizzle with oil and toss. Put into baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring twice. Stir in cilantro and salt, serve warm.

2/3 cup equals 130 calories, 5 g fat, 0 cholesterol, 205 mg sodium, 21 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 3 g protein

After making this recipe I would recommend only using half an onion or less and 1 jalapeno instead of 2. I also forgot to add the cilantro and salt to mine and I still loved it.

Seasoned Baked Potatoes
3 WW Points
4 medium baking potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Cut potatoes in half and place on an ungreased baking pan. Brush with oil. Sprinkle with basil, onion salt and garlic powder. Bake at 400 for 40 minutes or until tender.

2 potato halves equal 167 calories, 4 g fat, 0 cholesterol, 237 mg sodium, 31 g carb, 3 g fiber, 4 g protein.

After making this recipe I highly recommend some kind of butter!

Salmon Loaf (this is a perfect WW recipe )
3.5 WW Points
8 oz salmon, drained and flaked
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup skim milk
2 slices reduced calorie bread
2 tbsp onion flakes
1/4 tsp pepper
Flake salmon with fork and sprinkle with lemon juice. Scald milk. Break bread into pieces and soak in milk. Add onion flakes, pepper and softened bread to salmon and mix. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes.

Serves 2

I don't have any nutritional facts about this recipe. My mom has used it as long as I can remember and it's a family favorite! We cook our salmon loaf in a pie pan.
