Monday Edition...Hola Chicas!!!

Hola Chicas!! (that is the extend of the spanish I

How was your day? I had a good but busy day @ work but am amazed at how well I am staying on plan & how good I feel. I have only had 6 gms of sugar ALL DAY!!!  Me...and 6 gms of sugar!!! Who would have thought! Sheesh, before the BFC, I would have eaten 6 gms of sugar in a blink. I feel so in control and it is empowering!!! I feel like I "psychologically" want dessert but physically dont crave it anymore. This , in itself, is nothing short of a miracle!!! I love my sweets...LOVE THEM!!!! I never used to feel like a meal was complete without dessert. I am finding that my coffee with cream is becoming a great dessert in itself. I did enjoy a pure protein bar for dessert tonight after my dinner. Only 2/1 S/C value & very satisfying!!!

When I was following Weight watchers, all I could think about was my next meal, the next sweet I was going to make or bake, & planning my next day of meals. OMG...way too much focus on food!!! Now, I just dont have that desire to be so focused on food, and it is so liberating!!

Wanted to share a really yummy portable breakfast that I enjoy every day I go to work ( I work part time 3 days a week) For breakfast I love to have bacon cheese toast! 2 slices of ezekial bread (0/2) or my newest find of Trader Joes sprouted wheat bread (0/1 for 2 slices) with 3 slices of cooked Oscar  Meyer turkey bacon (0/0) broken in half and 3 ~(1/2 ) slices placed on each slice of toasted bread and then topped w/ 1 slice of Land O Lakes 2% american cheese (0/0). I then microwave each slice for 14 seconds and  I chase it all down with a glass of refrigerated Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (0/0) and voila!!! The most delicious and satisfying 0 sugar breakfast ever!!! Depending on the bread I use, it is either 0/1 or 0/2 breakfast. So good!! I usually make an entire pkg of turkey bacon on Sunday and use my electric skillet to pan fry them, then blot & place in a tupperware & take the bacon out as I need or want it. Thought I would share this becuase I am usually running late in the morning and need a portable breakfast to eat on the way in to work and like I said, it keeps me full & satisfied until lunchtime. I hope it helps you if you need an idea for breakfast on the go.

Wishing you all the very best to my BFC Buds!!! Keep on keepin on!!!


  1. Sherri, It is so true about weight watchers, you always are thinking about food and the wanting of dessert after a meal. I never felt satisfied like I do know on the BFC. Thanks for sharing your breakfast on the run. I should cook up my turkey bacon ahead of time instead of when I am needing it. Keep up the great work!

  2. Thank you Sherri for this post. I'm going to try it, because I'm always running late in the am. I usually eat a slice toasted of Avarado Sprouted grain bread, with 2 Tbls. Almond butter, and a cup of Java with cream to wash it down with as I drive to work. It's a great source of energy too.

  3. Hi Sherri, I too was one of those persons that was a sugar freak. I always wanted sweets every day. Sometimes I still do, but handle it much different now. And the bread w/cheese and turkey bacon is a great idea.
    BTW / I went to trader joes and looked at every loaf of bread and could not find any bread that had 0 sugar and low carbs.

  4. Hey Rosalie! It is the Trader Joes brand of sprouted wheat bread. I would call & ask one of the staff if they carry it. I cant see why they wouldnt. It is in their fresh bread section, near where they have the ezekial bread. Hope you can find it. IT is very yummy. A little lighter than ezekial bread but very very good!
