Waste O’ Points

21 Feb

blog_022113When you’re on a diet – whether tracking calories or points – I find nothing is more frustrating than eating something that isn’t worth the points.  Case in point – I picked up a ready made salad.  I was certain it would be yummy, as I’ve loved everything else from their deli.  But this was just awful.  6 points of awfulness!

The lettuce was dry, the tomatoes were gross and I had to struggle to get through it.  How would I calculate points on something I didn’t finish?

If anything, it was a reminder to make things at home.  I love making salads – but I find a definite convenience factor in having the nutritional info for the entire meal (dressing, etc.) provided.  With a home made salad, it takes a bit more time.

But now I know – make the effort.  Take the extra time to make something I know I’ll love and skip buying pre-made things whenever possible.  It’ll make the points used much more worth it!
