I am happy to report that I have had one successful day back on program! (Weight Watcher’s PointsPlus/Simply Filling Technique.)
We took a walk with our toddler, and I also got on the treadmill for 20 minutes—while I practiced singing “Somewhere That’s Green” for my audition in two days for my little one’s school Purim play. Haven’t done an audition in about twenty years and haven’t sung in public for about four years, so to say I’m terrified would be an understatement!

Anyway… I digress.
Breakfast: Coach’s Oat’s.
You can find them at Costco or online >>
My girlfriend, Sloane, turned me onto these yummy oats. Developed by an actual “coach”—who knew? They have the same nutty texture and nutritious value as Steel Cut Oats, but cook in 5 minutes. They remind me a bit of oatbran, but with more texture, depending on how long you cook them.
Fav new breakfast! And my toddler can’t get enough of them.
Add a little fat free milk or soy milk for a fabulous Weight Watchers Simple Start Breakfast.
4 Weight Watchers PointsPlus for 1/3 cup dry.

Dinner: Delicious Meal Mart Turkey Stuffed Peppers from Costco.
Four peppers in the container, stuffed with ground turkey and soy protein concentrate.
I love that don’t have any rice in them—just high protein, low-fat, non-dairy and satisfying as could be.
One pepper is 6 PointsPlus Points.
Hubby gets three of the four little balls of turkey, I get one of them plus most of the peppers.
Just add a little Lawry’s Seasoning Salt to boost the flavor.
For him: Rice on the side
For me: Big green salad with olive oil and seasoned rice vinegar.
I’m thinking this probably doesn’t fit strictly into the Power Foods category, but I am counting it as one—as part of my Simply Filling (non-point-counting) day! (If I had to tell you what my dinners have consisted of for the past few weeks for dinner, you’ll understand!)
Let me know if you try either of these and what you think!

I’m so glad you like the Coach’s Oats. They are one of my favorite breakfasts! I make them with light soy milk, a little brown sugar, cinnamon and a cut up apple… Yum!
Thank you for sharing! I find them so much more satisfying than regular oats and I’m not hungry an hour after eating them, like with Quaker oats.
Will be trying these today – sound great -m I love stuffed peppers and often make myself-but maybe have more cals than these- what do you think of millet? also has a lot of protein (as well as quinoa) ?
Let me know how you like them! I love quinoa. I’ve never tried millet. I have a great recipe for turkey stuffed peppers and zucchini – I’ll post it when I have a chance!
