Today's recipe is probably more of a lunch recipe but if you were to add the walnuts and apples as suggested you could have this for a light dinner I'd think. Research is showing that walnuts are good for your blood pressure, they have omega-3 fatty acids, and have fiber. I really like walnuts and bought a bag of them at Costco...just a little (1/2 oz) handful of the walnuts and a yogurt keep me satisfied in the morning until lunch time.

I am absolutely going to make this recipe this week. I think I'll put it on a bagel thin. If you haven't tried these thins you absolutely must. They are ONE (1) weight watcher point per thin and are completely YUMMY! I like to have them with turkey, lettuce, tomato, and some Laughing Cow French Onion Cheese...that sandwich is only 3 points!
Anyway, enough about food, have a wonderful Monday and I'll see ya tomorrow!
