I put basil on everything.

In case you haven't noticed, I put basil on everything.
Eggs. Meat. Fish.
A friend who reads my blog asked me the other day why my egg whites are never white. I put basil on them. Oh and seasoned salt (which is orange) so my eggs are usually colored weird.

I was chatting with LadyKool last night trying to figure out what I was gonna have for breakfast this morning (yes, I actually think about this stuff the night before....you don't want to see what happens when I don't plan.) and I told her I wanted to try to make hash browns. And she suggested I make a bootleg McDonalds Meal. So I did!

Whole Wheat English Muffin
3 scrambled egg whites
1/2 potato -> hashbrown
1 tsp olive oil
1 slice kraft ff cheddar cheese
1/2 c blueberries
6 pts
Okay so I went and calculated the points for the same meal from McDonalds - Egg and cheese McMuffin with a hashbrown and the points value is - 9 pts (which I believe is an underestimation..but whatever).
My hash brown was pretty big, but to be honest it came out a little to mushy. It was crispy on the outside, but the inside was not hard enough. I would describe it more like a potato pancake than a hashbrown. It was good, but I think next time I won't grate the potato pieces so fine. I still have half a potato in the fridge so I will test out a different method later on this week.

This is gonna be the week from hell for me in terms of school and stuff since I'm getting down to the wire with due dates and all that. So forgive me in advance if it takes me a while to post updates. Believe me, I would much rather blog than study for tests, but blogging isn't paying my bills soo....I guess I might as well get this degree.

Kashi Chocolate Caramel Crunchy Bar
2 pts

This bar is so tastey. HOWEVER, it is so tiring to chew!! I'm satisfied after I eat it but I am not sure if its because it "hits the spot" or because my jaw needs a break. Literally midway through I have to take a break from it because the chewing makes me tired.

Tilapia fillet
2 tbsp Asian Ginger dressing
1/2 leftover harvest grains
huge salad
6 pts

Be prepared for more lunch time salads because I'll be spending more time on campus this week during lunch time and salads dont require microwaves. :)

Chicken breast
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 black beans
Cheese quesadilla ->2 corn tortillas w/ 1/4 c mozzarella cheese
8 pts

Total for the day: 22 pts
Weekly Bonus Points Used: 0 pts
Bonus points remaining for the week: 23 pts
