I found this, and it looks so good, I might cook it tonight since I have 6 chicken breasts ready to be cooked!

Chicken Casserole

I don't think I'll add the white wine, though. The cook time is 45 minutes, but majority of that is spent with the chicken in the oven while you have free time to do something else!

my fave and easy thing is to cook up my chicken chop it into cubes, mix it with (cooked) chopped broccoli and carrots (but whatever you like would be tasty) I flavor it with lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper. After it is done I add some chopped tomatoes and serve it with toast with a light spread(sprinkled with garlic). I serve it with a salad. My family loves it!!

I also have made the same thing, but instead of the lemon I add canned tomatoes and spagetti seasoning (add a quarter cup of water to help it mix) serve it with pasta. MMMM GOOD!

One thing is to marinate and cook chicken breasts (grill or bake) ahead of time and freeze them individually, then you can thaw and the possibilities are endless.

Good Morning everyone!! Have I told you lately how lucky I am to have you in my life! Well I really do feel lucky, just thought you should know! LOL!! Did you watch biggest loser last night. My goodness that show motivates me! I wish Bob would come to my house! I love him! Cant wait till next week when we get to see everyone and how far they've come. I think they sneaked a peak at Eric and OMG! Anyway, got me to thinking about making some serious changes around here with my family. After the first of the year this entire family needs to start being healthier, not just me! My girls are just as fit as can be, but so was I at that age, I didnt gain weight till my 20s and now look at me! 2 steps away from diabetes and a heart attack. I do NOT want the for them. and my dh...he's getting softer and softer as time goes on.

Mia...good morning!! I hope you are feeling okay!! Fight off that cold. Have you tried Airbourne? How'd that workout go?

loveandlaugh...yummy!! dinner looked fantastic! When I do enchiladas its the green variety not so healthy with a creamy sauce. I'll have to give yours a whirl! Thanks for sharing! Way to go on your loss!!! That is FANTASTIC news!!

Sharon...holy moley!!! Way to go lady!!! You are just cruising arent you!! congrats on some AMAZING weightloss!!! Keep it up! You are doing so GREAT!!

Dolly...WOOOHOO!!! The thighs are shrinking the thighs are shrinking!! See all that hard work is paying off!! Keep it up! My favorite healthy dinner is italian chicken spaghetti. But I've modified it I dont use spagetti anymore I use rotini. What you do is cook some rotini pasta and drain, cut up chicken breasts into strips and saute them with some Just 2 Good Italian dressing (about 1/2 cup), then once the chicken is cooked through throw in 1 green, 1 red, 1 yellow bell pepper cut into strips and saute till just tender (I like em a lil crunchy still) add the chicken and peppers to the pasta and toss with 1 cup of Just 2 good italian dressing. Its so good! And its really good cold the next day too. If you use whole wheat pasta all the more better!

Ennay...you rock!!! that is so awesome!! What an incredible accomplishment!!! Way to go girl!!

Mande...thank you so much for setting up the Secret Santa! I really appreciate all your effort!

Jasmine....I hope all is going well with you and you are just cruising along like a champ! I was thinking of you last night I made my enchiladas, I need to do them healthier, but like you said...as long as its moderation!

Okay ladies, I hope that everyone has a wonderful day today! Really thick inversion fog going on here so I need to head out early. 2 more days of classes!! But then finals...boo! LOL!! My daughter has a field trip next week they are going cross country skiing and she really wants me to go, but I'm scared! That is a serious workout! See the things this weight holds us back from! Be strong everyone!! We can do this!

Thanks everyone for the great recipe ideas, they all sound so great. All of you are so fabulous! Looks like I need to pick up some chicken breasts from the store on the way home tonight. I slept through my alarm today so I didn't make it to the gym. I feel sluggish at work today and sleepy. Who knew exercise did so much for me. I thought about going after work, but then I wouldn't want to go in the morning again. I think I will just take the dogs out for a walk after dinner tonight. They seemed to like it last night and hey it gets me off my butt.

Mia, I hope you get better soon.

Hun.e.B., I saw the preview with Eric and it is amazing! He really inspires me because he as worked so hard. Did you see Kai too she was a skinny mini. I think Heather is the one that has the trouble. She just turns me off because of her attitude toward certain things. I feel she always wants things handed to her. Just watching all of them run motivates me to get going because hey if they can do I know I can too. Did you watch the special before about high school students. Two years ago I was a guest teacher at a high school for a leadership class and had to teach one day a week for 12 weeks. The choices for food at the high school were terrible. And yes fried tater tots were there veggie too, off course at that time I at them.

Hi ladies, just wanted to check in really quick. My kids are sick today so I have to take care of them today, fevers, I hate fevers. Even more I hate when they get ear infections, please no ear infections. I also woke up feeling lousy sore throat, runny nose, but as the day goes on I am feeling slightly better. Im just glad today is my day off.

Ennay I always cook my chicken before hand. It is such a lifesaver!

Sharon does that say SIX POUNDS?!! WOOHOO

Loveandlaugh you made me hungry just reading the ingredients. MMMM

Mia feel better soon. Make sure you get plenty of fluids, I am right there with you.

Melissa good luck with your last days of classes!! I don't usually watch the biggest loser because I am at work, but I love the motivational shows (I love celebrity fit club!) I understand about the whole family eating better, I feel guilty when I give my kids foods that I won't touch. Dont get me wrong they don't eat crap all the time, but when they do I feel guilty.

Dolly Sorry you didn't make it to the gym today. Make sure you get that walk in, the dogs will love it!!!


Sorry about the one liners lady off to fend of germs with disenfectant and bleach!! GERMS BEWARE!!

Good evening everyone! Well I'm catching something, not sure yet what, but it's really deep in my chest and I feel worn out. I went to a specialist today for chronic hives and he thinks there is something wrong with my thyroid. I have to get a chest x-ray and blood test. I just can't be sick right now. I need to attend a party next week, have an interview next Thursday, and have two gatherings at my home a week from tomorrow.

Good news? I have no appetite! Yeah for me, being sick isn't all bad.

Hun E.B. - I feel the same way. I am so grateful to have all of you in my life.

Sharon - A huge congrats on 6 pounds

Mia - feel better soon

loveandlaugh - I love the recipes!

jcatron - Sick too? I swear were passing it around here Get better soon

I just want to say the six pounds I lost, I was counting the first two I went down, sorry if I miss lead anyone, itwas not intentional. Boy that chicken recipe sounds great and I have lots of chicken in the freezer, can't wait to try it. I get Woman's World Mag. as a Xmas gift every year, I just love it, it has alot of information in it, anyhow you were talking awhile back about shakes and the weight loss article for Dec. 5th was on the Slim-Fast Optima shakes and how good they are and filling, they say it is because of a fibre and fat they now put in them that keeps you fuller much longer and they only have 200 calories, they are recommending 2 a day and a sensible meal as well as two snacks. Just shows how much you ladies are up on the new products, where most of you find time to find out this information I really don't know, between school and kids, but please keep it up, you had it way before I got it in my mag.

I was only able to get a 1-1/2 miles in last night, my legs and even sides were killing me, sounds like it is doing something. May do some floor exercises and a mile tonight if I can get through it, wish me luck!

I was at the doctor's today for a second opinion, to see whether they need to operate or not, well it is going out to other doctor's in our city to get there opinions. It seem's this pin that moved and in turn the bone shortening from that,is something new to them all, to my big surprise . So they are going to see if 4 or 5 heads can come up with the best way to fix it. What was described to me today, was a little spookie, first they will fix the elbow, then make another incision and cut a piece out of the bone beside the one with the screw in, so they both end up being the same length. I hope one of the new doctors who will be looking at my case can come up with something better. Sorry for going on about this, but my family is in short supply tonight, and I am really scared. My doctor calls me an enigma?
Hope you ladies with colds and sore throats and the kiddies with fevors feel better, there Mom especially. Thanks for being my sounding board. Sharon

Sharon, news like that can be scary and I am so glad you are getting a second opinion. My teenage son has several pins and screws in his bones from several surgeries this summer. We too got a second opinion before proceeding. Both doctors concurred and in the end we couldn't be happier that we did it. I did a lot of research on the internet about the doctors and the procedures also and felt better knowing more about it. Hang in there.

Six pounds is awesome no matter the time frame.

Okay I hate to sound generic here but I wanted to run in and give everyone a hug! Congrats to all you losers and to all of you who are working hard at it! I feel bad cause I haven't had much time to check on everyone lately and have been busy grocery shopping and cooking and cleaning and the few minutes I get to sit here I skim over everything and am rackking my brain on this one health website, trying to find out WHAT to get at the store! My dh told me I HAVE to stay home tomorrow, not go anywhere and rest! He knows how busy I have been. SO I can spend some more time with you all tomorrow.

I am doing fine with the walking, still getting at least 50 minutes a day. Still watching my food, actually watching it a little too closely and I think I am being fanatical about it again.

I go to the website of Dr. Merco;a and while he does seem to be a little out there, food extremist, etc. He does make a **** of alot of sense! And what bothers me is all these diseases and cancers and stuff out there. It just seems to me like it is because of certain foods.

SLimfast ~ he didn't say anything about that other than mentioning the lower carb craze which he actually recommends lower carbs himself, not as low as atkins though. BUT although I like it, I just don't know. I just want to get as much back to basic ingredients as possible. and the slimfast, what the heck is all that stuff in it anyways? You know what I mean? SO I told myself that since I am doing so many fruits veggies, grains , beans and a vitamin etc. There should be no nutrient reason other than calcium that I should even need a slimfast!

Yogurt is also supposed to be really good for you and I have been doing my daily yogurt. I still try to do the cheese a few times a week in moderation. I was thinking of adding in lowfat cottage cheese to help out as well but then I hit a stumbling block. This guy recommends no milk products UNLESS they are raw! (that is legal in Ca.)

And the reasons why do sound a bit "alarmist" but I believe it. You all have to admit why in the world is america in such dire health consequences, yeah I know we all need to exercise more, but our country is one of convenience, which is why we have prepackaged foods and chemically treated this and that. *sigh* Other countrys still do have "raw milk" products.

If you want to read some about what I am talking about, check out these links:

He has alot to say about a lot of stuff. Alot of times he prints articles and then comments too. He also has a search engine on his site.

Don't Drink Your Milk

Fox Fires Reporters for Telling the Truth About Milk

The Dairy Industry Self Destructs

Bunch of milk links

I could go on and on but I am sure you get the idea.

Arrggghhhh!!! So i went on the look for raw milk and cheese today. No such luck! I did get something close to okay. Tillamook was recommended on one of the "find raw milk" websites as to the fact that it is still pasteurized but they do grass feed their cows instead of grain. (Dont get me started on that! )

SO I am assuming that they would do the same for their butter as for their cheese. I did look at the cheese and there is one that says pasteurized, but two others that say "cultured" all the other reg. cheeses said "past." So I am hoping the "cultured" is better! SO I grabbed that one and I went and got the real butter of tillamook. I love real butter anyhow and usually grab it when the store brand one goes on sale. We rarely use butter any more anyhow. He of course states his reasons why real is better than that synthetic stuff, even I cant believe its not butter! If anyone wants links to that info just tell me or search his site, i.e. "real butter"

For the yogurt I was severely disappointed to see that it has aspartame in it! My one from the other day had crystalline fructose in it and that is supposed to be more natural but really, they are all a bunch of junk! I was sad to see that mercola, someone who has 77 reasons why to completely avoid sugar even stated that he would rather have regular sugar than any of that made up crap! uggghhhhh

I went looking for Fage yogurt which some on this site recommend, even if I cant get unpasteurized yet at least I can get one w/out artificial sweetners!

I did get something else new, Kefir! It is supposed to be well recommended. I am still trying to see what mercola thinks about it, I seen one page on his site was like a reprint from another place advocating it but I did not see his comments anywhere. Anyhow that is all for now, oh wait, I also went and got fresh spinach and am going to try a huge salad tonite! With romaine hearts.

I am sure you all think I have gone completely off my rocker now! hahahahahah
