First thing first... my dear friend Jenilee, who is sooo supportive of me, made a button for me so there you go. The code is on my side bar if you would like it!
So my goal for week 2 is: Walk + Try New Menu!
Light wheat bread
Natural peanut butter
Sugar free jelly
2 Chicken legs
Water chestnuts (never have purchased in my whole life, I didn't even know where to find them)
Fat free cheese (ok so this should not be made for human consumption...I will try to find something better)
2% cottage cheese
Whole wheat pita
2 non-fat fruited yogurts
Puffed rice cereal
Non-fat frozen yogurt
Animal crackers (hahahaha this one just makes me happy)
Lamb loin (can I say a What? What! where am I gonna find this in my little town hahaha)
Turnip (Yuck! I am gonna try it though)
This was my first meal and I had to make some adjustments. I was suppose to buy frozen pancakes...I thought about that and didn't like it. I decided to use my great grandpa's pancake recipe and replace the 3 tablespoons of sugar with 2 tablespoons of splenda. I used canola oil instead of vegtable. Instead of buttermilk I used skim milk. I could have some butter with my pancakes and I just deleted that just for good measure. This was a great meal to kick this off....it was good. 3/4 cups of yummy blueberries divine. Oh and my kids IKEA cups are great for 8oz! I use my luncheon plates to make it look like more hehehehe.
My packed lunch today chicken salad (chicken, green onions, 1 tbl light mayo and dill weed) in a 1/2 whole wheat pita. 1 1/4 cup watermelon, nonfat fruited yogurt (Suppose to be my snack. The cauliflower from dinner will be my snack now). I was supposed to have zucchini sticks and nonfat dressing for dipping; but I couldn't eat that while driving. The zucchini went into this instead and that was a yummy decision......
I wasn't sure about this one....sautéed onions and chicken, 1/2 cup pineapple with juice , 1/2 cup water chestnuts, 1 cup snow peas and I was suppose to sprinkle almonds on tope but I forgot ....sad. I must say I was surprised that I liked it! Yeah!
So, this one is a favorite....sautéed onions and salmon then when that was cooked I added 1/3 cup tomatoe sauce (I added a little water) and zucchini, then I cooked that a little longer. When done I poured it on 1 cup whole wheat noodles. I added 10 small green olives which were surprisingly very good...a little sea salt and I had a very good meal. I actually could not finish it, it was too much. Oh this I had to put on a big dinner plate...hahahaha love that!
So, if anyone has some low calorie meals they like to share please feel free to comment!
This has been pretty fun to figure out so far....
