My new walking experiment

So, yesterday was the first day of my walking experiment. I have decided instead of riding my bike to work, which only takes me about 10 minutes each way, to walk to work. It takes me 27 minutes to walk to work and if I did that both ways, that’s 54 minutes of exercise! AND,…

Great breakfast! Egg, potato, cheese hash

This breakfast was a winner today! I took the leftover chili/cumin/garlic powder chicken I made last night and added it with a potato, egg and cheese to make a breakfast hash. This kept me full forever! Ingredients: 1 egg “fried” with Pam cooking spray 3 oz. of the leftover chicken cubes (or any cooked chicken…

Cumin/Chili/Garlic powder chicken

First off, I have to give a shout out to TJ from TJ’s Test Kitchen!! I profiled her weight loss story a few months ago, you can read my interview about her HERE. She’s lost over 70 pounds and on her most recent weigh in, she is now the lowest she’s ever been as an…

George Forman Calzone

Well, my kids survived their first day of school and no homework was issued, so that was nice! My husband and I had to go back to the high school for parent orientation, so a quick dinner was made so we wouldn’t be late for that. One thing that would be easy and quick is…

Back to school! + Stove top 5 cheese mac and cheese

Healthy version of banana stuffed french toast – only 225 calories!!

Sometimes I feel like something savory for breakfast, but this morning I wanted something sweet. As I was looking in my fridge, I didn’t have time to make pancakes, or something more complicated, but I thought about french toast. Instead of using bread though, I used a 100 calorie skinny bagel. And I wanted a…

Pear Apple Sauce

I recently watched an episode of Jamie Oliver’s Cooking at Home show on the Cooking Channel and the show was focused on strawberries. One thing that he made was a strawberry jam. He said his mother never used pectin to make the jam; it was just the strawberries and some sugar, cooked for about 30…

Roti

I made another batch of this over the weekend. Roti bread is a traditional bread originating in India or Pakistan normally eaten with curries or cooked vegetables. The recipe couldn’t be easier! You will need: 250 grams of whole wheat flour (or all purpose flour works too) 1TB. oil or ghee (ghee is a clarified…
