Cinnamon French Toast w/ Syrup & Superfast Eggs in a Mug - 4 PointsPlus

Maybe it was the trip to IHOP that my mom and I took about a month ago, but lately I've REALLY been craving french toast.  It's one of those things that for some reason always makes me feel like a little kid again, and it warms my heart (and fills my tummy too!!)  So this past weekend I decided to try to come up with a slimmed-down version this feel-good food.  It's 2 slices of toast, 1/4 cup of syrup, and scrambled eggs all for only 4 PointsPlus!!

Responsible Indulgence - 2 PointsPlus Brownies, Fudge, Rice Krispy Treats, and Lemon Bars!!

I have a really terrible habit of comforting myself with unhealthy food when I'm sad or upset about something. Of course I know that using food to cope is not healthy, but if it must be done there are certainly ways to be smart about it.

The following pictures are times when I wasn't smart about it (click to enlarge if you dare):

1/3 of a slice of each: cheesecake, tiramisu, fruit tart, and chocolate mousse cake from a local bakery
Chocolate Cake from iHop
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes from iHop
Tiramisu from Olive Garden
Oreo Cookie Cake from Hot & Crusty

Yummy Things to Put on Toast

I know what you're thinking: "What a pointless post!"  But I promise reading this will be worth your time.

It all started with a simple craving for a few warmed up pieces of bread, but nothing to put on them.
(I like Arnold Bakery Light - a 2-slice serving is 2 PointsPlus)

Roasted Tilapia w/ Vegetables - 7 PointsPlus

It's no secret that I don't eat meat, and it's certainly no secret that I LOVE to eat fish.  If you've been following my blog since the beginning, you should also know that I LOVE roasted vegetables.  So what could be better for me than combining the two?
