Happy, the rice and beans is from Cooking Light, you can see it here.

The chicken marengo was from the American Heart Association Low Salt cookbook, here it is:

Chicken Marengo

Serves 6 (serving size 3oz chicken and about 1/2 C sauce)

6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, about 4 oz each
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp olive oil
8oz sliced mushrooms
1 medium red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 14.5-oz can no salt diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 C marsala, white wine, or low sodium chicken broth (I used broth)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 to 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

Season both sides of the chicken with pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook about 3 minutes each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate.

Reduce heat to medium. Add garlic, mushrooms, and onion to pan. Saute until vegetables are tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Return chicken to pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Per serving:
207 cals

Full nutritional info is in the cookbook, I am too lazy to type it up. You can find it on Amazon and search inside the book.

When I made it last night, I used chicken cutlets which cooked a lot faster, and added some frozen spinach for more veggies, then served over spaghetti.

I've been accountable to me, but not here...we've been so busy (houseguests with a business trip in the middle, then a whole mother's day worth of crazy work at my wife's employer...lots of moms getting lots of flowers). Dinner tonight out with a friend. Still, I cooked, made healthy choices, and kept up with my workouts, even doing a resistance band and yoga workout in my hotel room in Chicago during my trip. Still under red line, still moving along.

Plan for tomorrow:
B - Bagel thin, cream cheese, turkey
S - Edamame
L - Sandwich thin w/ tuna, light cheddar, strawberries
S - Greek yogurt pop - NF greek yogurt, smooshed strawberries and blueberries, lemon zest, a little vanilla, a little splenda, all stirred up and frozen in popsicle form.
S - Protein shake
D - Dinner salad - grilled pork tri-tip, grilled veggies, cucumber, carrots, peas, some croutons, light dressing
S - NSA Ice Cream

E - 70 min cardio, 60 min strength
