For breakfast today, I was craving egg salad and crackers along with my daily morning granola that I usually have. I almost reached for the buttery, high fat, high calorie crackers we had in the pantry, when I remembered — I had a large cucumber that I had bought fresh at the market the other day waiting for me in the refrigerator! So I made my egg salad and cut the cucumber into 1/4 inch thick coins, scooped some of the egg salad onto one of the coins and popped it into my mouth… HEAVEN.
At the end of that meal, I didn’t even feel like I’d missed out on anything by choosing the cucumber slices over the crackers. I can use these with egg salad, bean dip, hummus, ranch sauce…really, any dip or spread that requires something to scoop it up. And guess what? Cucumbers are ZERO points on the Weight Watchers PointsPlus program. WIN!
So remember — when you reach for those crackers or chips laden with fat and calories waiting to sink their teeth into your thighs and make your arms flabby and your butt sag — give yourself a SLAP on the wrist and reach for the cucumber instead! You’ll thank yourself for it later.
People who say “the customer is always right” have clearly never had a conversation with the customer.
