Big weekend breakfast

1 egg, 2 egg whites 5 ounces cooked potato 1 small orange 2 slices high fiber bread 1 tablespoon sugar free grape jelly This is what I call a totally deluxe Sunday morning breakfast! Sometimes the hardest part of losing weight is going crazy over the weekend. It doesn’t have to be like that when…

Good ol’ Mac-n-Cheese!

I know there are about a zillion different versions of macaroni and cheese. I love it, but I don’t love how the full fat versions are tons of calories and lots of fat. I adapted this recipe from a Healthy Choice recipe I read in a magazine about 10 years ago. It’s the one I…

Spaghetti & Meatballs

I hate it when you get home from work and look around to see what there is to make, and you fear that there is nothing good in your freezer/fridge/pantry. That’s the predicament I was in. It was late in the week and groceries from the weekend before were almost all gone. I have a…

Awesome Lunch!

  I mentioned that I found the grilled chicken strips at Aldi.  (Look under April 2008 Archives and find the post called “Food Finds”).  I had some chicken strips left so I decided to make a stir fry.  I love stir fry’s because you can eat a ton of veggies and it takes a long time to eat….

Awesome Jumbo Low-Cal Yummy Chocolate Chip Muffins

One of the things that is hard when you are losing weight is actually changing your lifestyle.  Every time you read about people who want to lose weight, they say, “Change your lifestyle!”  But how?  I think this time around I am going to try to change my lifestyle a little at a time.  One…

Food Find

I love grocery shopping.  If I could spend a Saturday afternoon at any grocery store I would.  I love Trader Joe’s (although I only get there about once a month), there is a Whole Foods about 10 minutes from my house (but too expensive for weekly shopping!) I sometimes go to Jewel or Dominick’s (I…

My McSkillet

  I was kind of in a hurry this morning, and thought I would only have time to grab a homemade muffin, but I opened my fridge, and saw I had some left over Ore-Ida Hash browns, I know I had lo-carb tortillas and eggs, and decided to make my version of the McDonald’s McSkillet. The…

Slumgulion

I don’t know where the name of this dish came from, but growing up that’s what my parents called it. The only thing is when my Mom made it, I would ask her to have no chunks of onions in it! I make it all the time for my family and they really like it,…

Dinner Wed. night

I really didn’t have much of an idea of what to make for dinner. So when I got home, I cooked up a few huge chicken breasts with Mrs. Dash lemon pepper seasoning.  Once it was done, I let it rest for about 5 minutes, and then just carved each one so it made many slices….
