Simply Filling Technique: Week One!

I'm proud to announce that I have started the Simply Filling Technique this week. I just felt ready to try it!

Yesterday I ate 28 of my 49 weekly points (in vegan cupcakes and Taco Bell), and I'm planning to save the rest for peanut butter and other healthy add-ins through the week.

Yesterday, besides the cupcakes and bean burritos, I ate the following Power Foods:

- oatmeal
- light soy milk
- banana
- whole grain cous-cous
- corn
- white beans
- extra virgin olive oil

How healthy is that?! :-) I'm loving this so far, and I'm looking forward to what changes this week will bring to my diet.

Things that I'm most looking forward to about this change:

1) I never have to measure the Power Foods! (except for the healthy oils, I will still measure out two teaspoons daily to add to my bowl meals)

2) I can enjoy starchy Power Foods vegetables to satisfaction, without having to count PointsPlus for them. I love corn, peas, and potatoes the most.

I am planning to make a big bowl of healthy foods, and see how long it lasts. When it's gone, I will make another one. The first one will be brown rice, black beans, canned tomatoes, canned corn, and frozen (cooked) vegetables.

Eating to satisfaction has been tricky, but I'm learning, one meal at a time.

You can have potatoes without extra points?! Maybe I need to try this Weight Watchers deal.... :) said...

I'm looking forward to hearing how the SFT goes for you! I mostly eat Power Foods as it is, but I have a hard time with moderation so I don't know if it would work for me!

Those foods are super healthy- whole grains, healthy fat, lean protein! Good job!
