WW Friday….

 It’s Friday……..did everyone have a good Valentine’s Day? Matt has been in Chicago all week so I caught up on my DVR last night and I think we will celebrate this weekend!
Today is another WW weigh in day and I lost 1 pound! Not great but it’s something…….that brings my total to 7 and it has been 1 month! I would LOVE to loose 3 next week to make that number 10 pounds lost and I am going to try my hardest! How are you fairing? Anyone else trying to “re-commit” like I am? But I think that is ok, dedicating myself to trying harder and not giving up. I am ok with that.
NOW…I have to share with you my favorite WW go-to meal…..Easy Pad Thai! I have combined several WW recipes to come up with my own version that is 7 WW points!! (Add 2 points if you add a protein)
The easy thing about this is I use whatever is in my fridge……different everytime. This is the perfect dish to use up leftover produce and I always make double for lunch the following day!
Here is what I used this time…….
Shredded Carrot
Red Pepper
Mushrooms
Cabbage
Egg (scrambled no cream)
Bean Sprouts (in the can on the Asian aisle)

The sauce is really easy……

2 Tbl of brown sugar

3 Tbl low sodium soy sauce

dash of tabasco (or Asian hot sauce if you have it)

Lime juice

S&P

And you don’t add this until the end when you add your noodles to the pan!

The rice noodles come hard and all you do is put them in any dish and pour warm water over and let them soak for around 45minutes. You don’t want them real soft yet or they will become mush in the pan! Drain when they are ready…..

Sautee all your veggies in 1 tbl Sesame oil on med-high and then you will add in your noodles and sauce! The noodles will magically soak up all the delish sauce and there you have perfect Pad Thai!

Oh! Did I mention I added 2 tbl of chopped peanuts? I did and it works!!! Let me know if you try this! Yummy!

    Congrats on the pound loss! I am here re-committing with you. Rough weeks happen and for me all I can do is move forward and as you said "Not give up".

    OMG, that looks divine! I'd have to add a protein for David…but, I'll probably be trying this! And way to go on your pound, every pound counts!!
