Trying to prepare for the week, especially with GlutenFast2010, I was creating some of my own "convenience food" to replace the quick snacks I became accustomed to (like delicious and filling Kashi Bars).
I spent some time with my scale and a box of snack sized bags.
tons of 3 point servings of cinnamon-sugar coated almonds
All of that packing made me a little snacky. You would think I'd just reach for the almonds I was playing with, but I decided to go for one of the new treats I got at the PriorFatGirl meet up I talked about yesterday.
Cookie Bites from Kay's Naturals
This totally decent sized bag clocked in at only 2 points (110/2/3) and packed 10 grams of protein! WOW! (and yum)
actual size shot of the bites
I was pretty sad to see that the boxes of single serving packets were sold out on Kay's website, especially since Jen, a prior fat girl, has a super sweet discount code through April 15th! (just enter "priorfatgirl" when checking out for 30% off your order!)
Sweet tooth satisfied, I figured I ought to make some "real" food so I stuffed a turkey tenderloin cut at the bottom of a roasting pan FULL of delicious veggies.
The downside? I'm an idiot and put all these things in together, knowing full well the veggies shouldn't have entered the picture until the last 1/2 hour of roasting time. Dumb. They were ruined by steaming and were horrible. I am going to toss them into a soup though, so it's not a total loss.
How do you rescue a meal you were totally excited for yet totally ruined?
