Talking So... what's for dinner TONIGHT!

I'm making shrimp fried rice.

2 cups of shrimp
4 cups of brown rice
1/4 cup onions
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup diced carrots
1 clove garlic diced
4 medium eggs
soy sauce
tiny bit of oil

Cook your rice, put all veggies in a pan and saute, add the shrimp, rice and eggs and cook with soy sauce (or whatever sauce you want!) until flavors meld

This will feed all five people in my family with leftovers. It's about 190 calories a cup and over 17 grams of protein.

Now how about YOU?

I was gonna make fish tacos until I saw BeverlyJoy's post - now I think it will be Zucchini Spaghetti. But I will need to find something else to add to it since that would still leave me about 400 calories short for the day.

So glad you make fried rice, cfmama - I make it all the time and it's one of my "wow, I can't believe this is a healthy meal" meals. I usually make it with ground turkey or tofu as the main protein (plus an egg or two) and toss in just about whatever vegetable I have in the house that needs to get used - onions, celery, peas, celery, peppers - I have even put in chopped broccoli.

Tonight, I think I'll make sauteed okra and onions, and serve it over a small portion of pasta, with some nabulsi (delicious middle-eastern cheese, only 80 calories an ounce) shredded on top.

Wow, those Crock Pot Cheeseburgers sound incredibly yummy!! I'll be having red beans and rice!

1/2 can kidney beans
1/2 cup instant rice
1/4 cup salsa fresca
Then I stir in cajun seasonings and water to fill the pot and simmer to the right consistency! Simple and yummy.
