Make it work!

So the other day, I was at a fan event at Disneyland. I had less than an hour to get lunch and get back. I hurried to a bakery that had sandwiches and salads to try and find something low in Weight Watchers points. I got a Chicken Caesar salad because it had a decent sized chicken breast on it, thinking I would get different dressing for it. I asked for Balsamic vinegarette, since that was the best they had. I figured I could just dip my fork in it, using only half of it. I removed the croutons and cheese, then ate the chicken breast plain. I tried the dressing and it tasted like it was pure oil. This would not work, and it didn’t even taste good. My lunch break was ticking away, so I began looking around trying to think of something else to put on my salad. There was a bottle of mustard on the table. “That would be kind of weird,” I thought. I looked at the time. It was my only option, because I had no time to go to another restaurant just for dressing. “Well, I put mustard on a sandwich or a burger, and those have lettuce. Why not?” I squirted some mustard on the side and dipped a piece of lettuce in it. Not bad! I squirted mustard all over my salad and ate most of it. It was a healthy lunch, full of protein and veggies…and only three points! This is one example of making it work with limited food options. Try it! It’s not as weird as you think.
