Hi Everyone,

This week I have asked everyone to bring in a favorite product or recipe.

As we plan our meals week after week sometimes it is easier to go with old reliables then to try something new. Sticking to the same old things, though, can lead to food boredom. Such boredom can leave us more vulnerable to temptation and unplanned snacking which can hinder weight loss efforts.

Changing up food choices promotes satisfaction and long term weight loss success. This week we are going to do that in the meeting by looking at some recipes and products that other members enjoy. Also check out the week 8 book for some interesting recipes.

See you at the meeting.


Makes 1 serving - points value 5

1 large egg
3 large egg whites
1 cup lightly packed baby spinach
2 Tbsp crumbled reduced fat feta cheese
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp canola or olive oil

1. Beat the egg and the egg white in a medium bowl until frothy. Stir in the spinach, feta and pepper.

2. Heat the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and cook, stirring, until the eggs are set and the cheese is slightly melted, about 3 minutes.
