🔵 I am also tracking on WW PersonalPoints just to show you the difference – I would get 19pts/day + 28 Weeklies but since I don’t eat sugar free or most fat free products (food additive intolerances), points based plans don’t usually work well for me. This will be an interesting experiment.
👩🏻🍳 COOKING FOR SANDY DAY
3 days a week, I cook meals for a neighbor who had a stroke last year and has limited mobility.
We often share a meal kit or something similar and spend some time together since neither of us go out too much 😁
Today is one of her days. I’m enjoying having someone to cook for again.
Last night I cooked some chicken leg quarters in the Instant Pot and today I made her 3 chicken dishes for the week…
▪️ Coconut Curry Chicken (like Butter Chicken)
▪️ Chicken Alfredo
▪️ Pad Thai Chicken (used the sauce from the Stir Fry Veggie kits that I only use the veggies from)
