MEAL HIGHLIGHTS
๐ŸŽ High Point Meals – Since I generally only eat two meals/day, and don’t snack, I eat a little differently than most people on this plan. Points may be higher than you are used to seeing. I do not use sugar free, fat free, artificially sweetened or highly processed foods as a general rule (FF yogurt is an exception) as they flare up my autoimmune issues.

My goal is not to have as low point meals as possible…I am developing a sustainable, lifelong way of eating and changing my relationship with food forever… I eat everything on WW ๐Ÿ’œ PURPLE… #eattherainbow

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ As part of my Autoimmune issues, my sense of taste has changed greatly… I need stronger seasonings to taste them – so like with any recipe – develop your own tastes… Omit things, substitute things, add flavors – fear not the #experimentsineating – you never know when you’ll find something incredible!

๐Ÿญ Reducing Points – If you choose to use sugar free/fat free products, your points may be significantly less in certain recipes.

I’m not telling anyone to eat any certain way… Just sharing steps on my own Wellness Adventure….
