I don't know if anyone else has tried this, but it works for me. When I stir fry veggies, instead of oil, I spray the pan with Pam just for the non-stick factor, and then I use chicken broth to cook the veggies instead of oil. It's harder because you have to keep an eye on the broth levels (I start with a little bit and add a little bit at a time if the veggies start sticking to the pan) but it's a lower fat alternative to oil and it's worked well for me.

I roasted a chicken yesterday, so we had some of it for dinner, along with roasted asparagus and red peppers (just tossed in a tiny bit of olive oil and salt). I actually roasted the peppers from frozen.. I wasn't sure if that would work well, but it was fine!

Lasagna! yum!
Made with ground chicken instead of beef, whole wheat noodles, and 1% cottage cheese instead of ricotta.

Next time I'm going to wrestle the mozzarella from the hubby so I can cut the amount in half. Other than that, it was A+!

Last night, I grilled some chicken and some turkey sausage, and had it with some spinach salad and baked beans... Which the beans were suprisingly low in points and sodium, and full of fiber.

Brooks- when i stir-fry veggies, other than a little EVOO to put on the bottom of the pan, i don't add any additional oil. but good thinking with the chicken broth! reduced-sodium broth i hope!

I just ate such a delicious evening meal. It was a large fillet of coley, "poached" in the oven in a pocket of foil, with whole milk, a smidgen of butter and the juice of half a lemon. I served it with green beans and just-wilted spinach, which I drizzled with the buttery poaching juice. Delicious, and, according to online calorie counters, the large piece of fish contained over 100% of my RDA for protein. It was really simple, filling and delicious.

I'm now about to bake myself a delicious treat. I'm going to make apple bars, marbled with dulce de leche caramel (yum!). I adore baking and usually give half of the batch to my boyfriend. I know it seems like it isn't "diet friendly", but I find it really easy to work into my healthy eating plan, and I'd so much rather eat a delicious small homemade treat with my coffee than buy store-bought additive-ridden products.

Last night:
- Steak kebobs (4 oz worth)
- Scalloped potatoes (thick sliced potatoes steamed in foil on bbq w/onion and condensed mushroom soup)
- Salad

Tonight:
- ground chicken taco
- side of taco salad (since 5 oz chicken doesn't fit in a 6" wrap and I want to bulk up on the veggies without having an extra starch)
*no cheese as I'll already have had my dairy for the day

Last night, I made chicken and Turkey Sausage Jambalaya. The recipe that I used was:

Ingredients
1 spray(s) cooking spray
2 1/2 oz raw turkey sausage, chopped
1 large onion(s), chopped
1 medium celery, stalk, chopped
1 small green pepper(s), chopped
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp black pepper, ground
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
2 medium chicken breast, cooked, skinless, cubed (about 2 cups)
28 oz canned tomatoes, whole, plum, peeled with juice
2 cup(s) fat-free chicken broth
1 cup(s) uncooked brown rice
2 cup(s) mushroom(s)
Instructions

Coat a large, nonstick saucepan with cooking spray. Over high heat, sauté sausage until crispy on edges. Add onion, celery and green pepper; sauté until tender.
Reduce heat and stir in cayenne, thyme, salt, pepper and garlic; sauté until garlic is fragrant.
Stir in chicken, tomatoes, broth and rice. Bring to a simmer, cover and let cook until rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.

Flavor Booster: Popcorn rice, a specialty of Louisiana, is a delicious substitute for long-grain rice. The rice, which has a mild nutty taste like basmati rice, is available through gourmet food stores and Internet specialty shops.



I added in the mushrooms and substituted brown rice for regular rice.... SUPER YUMMY! Add more/less cayenne pepper depending on your taste.

Last night my mom made some rotisserie chicken, so I had some strips of that and two dinner rolls. It was delicious. And tonight I think I'm gonna make a salad and put some of the leftover chicken in it.
