This morning we had our monthly bagel date!
In 2011, we let our love of bagels get a little too crazy (they were nearly an everyday occurence for a while!) so we decided to have them once a month in 2012 and have fun with it by making it a date. This month, we chose Bruegger’s Bagels because I had this coupon:
(who doesn’t love a good exclamation mark on a coupon?! It’s like the coupon is just as excited about the deal as I am!)
Matt also had a coupon so we saved $3.58! Needless to say, it has been a good start to our Sunday. (Did you know that Bruegger’s has a unlimited refill mug club? Abby describes it in a This Life in Motion post)
I have to admit that I debated this month’s date a little bit because the bagel and cream cheese is 12 of my 26 Weight Watchers points for the day. I thought about dipping into my 49 weekly bonus points but I did plenty of that for my wine at Farkle night.
I plan to work out later today to gain activity points and rely a lot on hearty servings of fruits and vegetables to get me through the day. I usually like to keep my breakfasts under 6 points, but the monthly bagel date is worth the splurge.
Speaking of breakfast and Weight Watchers, this is the awesome breakfast that Matt and I made after we got home from the Juvenile Diabetes walk yesterday (5 total points and it even has cheese!):
The egg scramble serves 2 and is 3 points per serving:
- 2/3 cup Egg Beaters Egg Whites
- 1/2 cup fat free milk
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- bell peppers
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
The Sara Lee Delightful bread is only 1 point per slice (most other breads are 2-3 points per slice) and the apple butter is 1 point per tablespoon.
Where do you choose to splurge in your diet? What is one of your favorite healthy meals?
