Okay Bee Bandwagoners... I told you I like a lot of food. I guess I'm like hungry girl or something. Anyway this is last night's supper.
The lower right is baked chicken, I only eat a half a chicken breast, on the left are roasted root vegetables, onions, potatoes, carrots and mushrooms and on the top is steamed broccoli and cauliflower. That was quite a plate of food and it weighed in at less than 300 calories. This kind of cooking is how I can stay on 1200 calories a day.
For a snack I had fruit and before bed a decaf latte and a small biscotti. I want to show you more of my meals if you are interested.
This very healthy meal is extremely low in fat (I only used spray on the veggies when I roasted them) and very low sodium. It only took about 10 minutes to prepare, an hour to cook in the oven for the vegetables and the last 35 minutes I put the chicken in, and there you go. Now I have two more meals already prepared because today I have canasta and when I come home I can "heat and eat". There is also enough chicken for a sandwich in the next few days. Nothing will be wasted.
Did you wonder why I roasted the vegetables for an hour? I know they are done sooner but I use non stick foil and spray the bottom of the baking sheet and if you leave them in that long they brown up so nicely. The onions taste just like they are fried but they are not.
Also some of the roasted onions and mushrooms will be delicious in an omelet made with egg beaters or one egg (I like either) and some salsa on top and a bit of fruit on the side. Be creative, think ahead at the produce stand, plan, cook and LOSE weight! Oh, and feel wonderful while you are at it.
And if you need to be on the Bee Bandwagon and aren't, why not?
