Dieting doesn’t have to taste bad! I joined Weight Watchers after my neighbor lost 20 pounds and looks amazing! I love food and I love eating food. This is why I am a food blogger. Being a food blogger has it’s perks and it has it’s pounds. The first week I lost 5 pounds and I still ate tacos and pizza. The key is finding the foods that are worth zero points and loading up on those. So when you find yourself in your favorite restaurant and the pizza is calling your name. You have points to use and you make a better choice on the type of pizza you order (Margherita Pizza). The first couple of days I was HUNGRY! I was trying to figure the program out and stay within my smartpoints budget. Then BOOM I got it! Fruits and Veggies are your friends. Crackers and chips are the enemy. This was in my case anyway.

So now it was a game. I LOVE to eat and create recipes. My first day I used 10 smartpoints on breakfast and it was a bowl of oatmeal. Yikes. I only have 30 smartpoints in a day. Today I had this Egg White Veggie Omelet and grapes. This is worth only 4 points. WIN!

Perfect Omelet Hack

To make the perfect omelet I use this small nonstick frying pan it is perfect for making omelets, eggs, or single serve recipes. Using the small frying pan, the egg whites will cover the bottom of the frying pan. This will make the egg whites a perfect circle. Then I spray my spatula with nonstick cooking spray. The egg won’t stick to your spatula and tear your omelet while flipping the top over the fillings.
