3 Points.

On Weight Watchers, you may regularly find yourself, after dinner, with 3 points left. About 10% of your daily total. So then you might find yourself making a list of all the things you can have for 3 points, and deciding which will be enough to turn off the food-thinking, Smitten-Kitchen-skimming, kitchen scrounging for the night... let me suggest a few items on that list...

  • 4 ounces of wine
  • 1 slice of toast with a teaspoon (teaspoon!) of jam or peanut butter (but not both)
  • 1 Thomas' English muffin, plain
  • a large mug of strong hot cocoa, made from the powder with water
  • a small bowl of oatmeal with berries or frozen unsweetened peaches stirred in
  • just-under-one-shot of vodka with soda water
  • 40% of a regular sized candy bar, or about 2 sticks of a KitKat
  • 8 ounces of orange juice
  • 1.5 graham crackers
  • 3 cups of popcorn without butter
All this, with an eye on the prize... happy hour after work on Friday night! For that's where all the points go.
