Ten on Tuesday

Carole asked what was in our freezers for this week’s Ten on Tuesday post. I only have a small freezer on top of my fridge, but I do keep it pretty packed most of the time...and nowadays, it's stocked with far healthier options than I ever used to keep on hand!
1. Gorton’s Grilled Salmon filets: these little squares are just 100 calories, and became a staple meal when I was actively losing weight on Weight Watchers. I adore them, as they’re a quick, but healthy main dish on any night when I’m really pressed for time.
2. Morningstar Farms Spicy Black Bean Burgers: I use them with a Sandwich Thin as a bun, again, for a quick dinner
3. Oreida Potatoes O’Brian: 1 cup= 1 WW point (when “fried” in a pan with cooking spray) and makes a good side with either entrée listed above.
4. Fresh ginger root, ready to grate
5. Chopped green onions, read to toss into any dish, including omelets
6. Whole green peppers from last year’s CSA waiting for me to stuff for a main course
7. Frozen berries: all kinds – I buy when in season and freeze for quick additions to fruit salads all year
8. Frozen asparagus – again bought in season (it’s my favorite vegetable)
9. Various frozen soups, stews, chili: leftovers that I store in single servings to toss in my lunch bag, or to pull out for quick reheating on a crazy night for dinner…I make these all year long on weekends just for this purpose
10. Freezer packs for my lunch bag
I also keep some WW frozen dessert treats in the freezer – things like ice cream bars and Smart Ones chocolate brownies or Key Lime dessert cups. I like them and they keep me from wanting to make up something far heavier in calories and fat.

Ooh, yummy stuff!! I have to try keeping ginger in the freezer like that - I've never done that before.

I wish I'd saved some berries to freeze instead of eating them all.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
