As I promised yesterday, I am eager to slow down a bit this week and rely on some basic ingredients to pull me through this Weight Watchers week. First up: Grilled Meat. Apologies in advance to my Vegetarian readers, but I decided to go ahead and grill out today (okay, okay…I decided to ask my husband to grill out because he actually likes doing it). Here’s my menu:
Grilled Chicken and Spinach Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette courtesy of Skinnytaste.com (5 points): I haven’t actually tasted this yet, but it smells delicious. Will update you as I know more.
Grilled Pesto Chicken: Not sure how many points this has because all I did was pound two chicken breasts to uniform thickness and added to a storage bag with a tablespoon of pesto. Then I just squished all around until the chicken was covered and marinated in the fridge for a couple of hours. See?
Next up is a Greek Turkey Burger Recipe I found on http://www.laaloosh.com.
Now that I have some main ingredients, I plan to match these items with salads and veggies throughout the week. I’m also planning to make some 4-point tostadasand too! Speaking of tostadas, I found some baked tostadas today that I’m going to use to dip in salsa (ahem…really I mean cheese dip, but just go with me here). They are called “Charras Baked Corn Tostadas” and I found them in the tortilla section. TWO tostadas = 2 points, which is fantastic. I’ll use these instead of fried tortilla chips the next time I order some cheese dip to go.
Stay tuned to FoodRevival over the next couple of days as I hope to update you on how all of these recipes/meals turn out and because I’m going to challenge myself starting tomorrow (Monday) to get off Facebook for a week. I think when I publish these posts they automatically update on Facebook, but just know I won’t see any questions/comments on the Facebook thread until I log back on next week. Wish me luck.
I hope this inspires some of your meals this week. Here’s a big ‘ol hooray for springing forward today. I think we could all use a boost forward, right?
