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:
- light soy milk
- whole grain cous-cous
- 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.
