Courtnie--how did the smoothie work out for you?

I stuck to the plan again 100% yesterday (woohoo!). Now I have to remember to think, "hey, I did it yesterday, so I can do it again today!" instead of, "I've been so good lately, I deserve a treat." :devil: On to today:

peanut butter and jelly sandwich
glass of skim milk
SmartOnes chicken santa fe frozen meal
2 Subway sweet onion chicken teriyaki wraps (in lieu of my usual 12" sub on honey oat bread)
1 Subway cookieAnd, of course, 3 liters of water and a hike up my 4 flights of stairs :)

Jillybean-It's layers of tortilla, cheese, ground beef/black bean/onion mixture. I got it from Rachel Ray. It's so good. I use less of what's called for so it comes out with less calories. I'll PM the recipe to you. Me and the bf love it!!!

07-13-2006, 11:07 AM
Rosario - can you send me the recipe too?

Jillybean - the smoothie worked out pretty good, it didn't feel me up like two pieces of toast would but it lasted longer then I thought it would. Around 11:30-12 I started getting super hungry but then it faded and I had stuff to do so I didn't get to eat till 1. But I would say it lasted just as long as two pieces of toast, I just didn't get that same full feeling - but I think that's good! I am thinking of having another one this morning - just because I have banana's and I love peanut butter, haha.

07-13-2006, 11:13 AM
Oooooh...count me in on the PB love! :)

07-13-2006, 11:17 AM
Rosario - can you send me the recipe too?

Just post it for everybody :)

Woo hoo planning!

Breakfast: 1 banana, 1 cup of strawberries, 1 small bunch of grapes, 1/2 cup of lowfat granola.

Lunch: Tuna sandwhich on wheat bread with mustard and lettuce. Grapes. Diet Coke.

S: Carrots and lowfat ranch.

D: Dunno yet... whatever lovely MIL cooks. She cooks fairly healthy meals though, so I should be okay.

Today has changed a bit:

I didn't have anything before I left for work so I just had my coffee and an energy bar when I got here.

The smoked salmon got put in the freezer so I am having tuna sandwitch today and will have smoked salmong tomorrow.

Snack will still be grapes.

Dinner will be left overs from last night - pasta!

Okay here goes:

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 pounds ground chicken breast, available in the packaged meats case
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 (14-oz) can stewed tomatoes or fire-roasted chopped tomatoes
1 cup medium heat taco sauce
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained
1 cup frozen corn kernels
8 (8 inch) spinach flour tortillas, available on dairy aisle of market
2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar or shredded pepper jack
2 scallions, finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil – twice around the pan. Add chicken and season with chili powder, cumin, and red onion. Brown the meat, 5 minutes. Add stewed tomatoes or fire-roasted chopped tomatoes and taco sauce. Add black beans and corn. Heat the mixture through, 2 to 3 minutes then season with salt, to your taste.

Coat a shallow baking dish with remaining extra-virgin olive oil, about 1 tablespoon oil. Cut the tortillas in half or quarters to make them easy to layer with. Build lasagna in layers of meat and beans, then tortillas, then cheese. Repeat: meat, tortilla, cheese again. Bake lasagna 12 to 15 minutes until cheese is brown and bubbly.

*you can use salsa instead of the taco sauce. that's what I use and it comes out yu-mmy!!

jacket potato with cottage cheese

Do you mind telling me what a jacket potato is??

Courtnie-the baked potato with salsa was freaking yum!!! I'm going to be having that again!!

07-13-2006, 02:09 PM
That's just how our Euro friends say "baked potato." The jacket is the skin.

07-13-2006, 02:10 PM

07-13-2006, 02:13 PM
Rosario - that sounds sooo yummy! I think I might have to try that! Probably the most complicated thing I have ever made but it sounds good! Any idea on calories, etc? I am glad you liked the potatoe :)

07-13-2006, 02:17 PM
courtnie-sorry I don't have any info on the calories. rachel ray is not known for posting all that info. First off, I don't use all those ingredients. I just enter what I use for the entire recipe in Fitday and then I get a total number of calories, fat, etc. Then I just divide by 4 (that's how many servings I get out of mine).

07-13-2006, 02:19 PM
Okay thanks! I will try it out, maybe on the weekend if I go get all the stuff I need. My boyfriend and I are trying to cut back on the food shopping for now, trying not to spend so much money, haha
