This week I am reporting a total weight loss of 33.4 pounds.
25 Feb-I wanted to make Alice Springs Chicken but wanted to change it up. I had one box of Kraft macaroni and cheese in the back of the pantry and a new recipe was born. I cooked the 1-pound chicken breast as per usual, browned 150 grams chopped bacon and 8 ounces sliced mushrooms. I made the Mac N Cheese according to directions (with ICBINB and skim milk) then stirred in 1/4 cup Dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1/4 cup agave syrup. I like this better than the Alice Springs Chicken!
24 Feb-I had a bottle of Punjabi Butter Chicken sauce and a bottle of Tikka Masala sauce. I cooked 1 pound chicken breast and put half in each sauce. I served these with the frozen naan I had made, plus two cans of green beans and basmati rice. It made five servings.
23 Feb-I wanted to use some of those frozen meatballs in the freezer, so I found the linked recipe. I used butternut squash perogies from the freezer and low-fat mozzarella, bottled marinara and added 2 ounced low-fat cream cheese stirred into the sauce to cut the acidity.
22 Feb-I found a rib eye steak in the freezer and decided to make Cheese steaks with it. I sliced it thinly and stir fried it in a bit of oil with bell peppers and onion. I put it in a soft pita and topped with a slice of low-fat provolone cheese before microwaving it for 20 seconds. The Papa Pita bread was perfect for this!
21 Feb-I bought gyro meat from Winco. The brand name is Opaa! It isn’t the best meat I’ve ever had but it is easy to figure the calories for and fully cooked, so I just heat it and serve. I am using the ultra soft Papa Pita bread (4 g fiber) and sliced a roma tomato and romain lettuce and onion. For the sauce, I used this Tzatzki recipe.
20 Feb-One of my favorites tonight, chile relleno burrito. This is so delicious and filling.
19 Feb-When I saw this recipe on Niteshkumar’s site, SABKI MAGGI, I knew I wanted to make it. I followed the recipe pretty closely, though I used PB2 powdered peanut butter. It was interesting and very filling.
