Vegan Breakfast Idea | One Point on Weight Watchers

apple slice with peanut butter

What does a vegan or someone gluten sensitive eat for breakfast?
That's a good question, and I have a great suggestion- Apple rings (slicing the apple through the middle) are fresh, healthy, delicious and no points of Weight Watchers. I use the apple as my base for this delicious breakfast.

Instant Pot or Not Chilled Zucchini Corn Lime Soup

Corn LIme Soup at

Corn and zucchini are at their peak right now, and the duo are sensational in this light summer soup which can be eaten chilled or warm.

I cook the soup in my Instant Pot and then blend the it with an Immersion blender.  ***If you do not have an Instant Pot, follow my stove top recipe at the bottom of the page. ( But what are you waiting for?)

Spiralized Summer Vegetable Medley

I love the rich golden colors of this spiralized vegetable medley. It's as beautiful as it is healthy.

Yes, I'm using my spiralizer again! 

It takes only minutes to spiralize vegetables using a spiralizer. I spiralized zucchini, beets, and sliced red onion and tossed them in a large skillet in a little olive oil spray with same salt, pepper and ground turmeric.

Just because I am trying to  lose weight doesn't mean I want to feel deprived. One minute Chocolate Pudding is a perfect way to stick to my program but still enjoy something very decadent  !!
