another OP weekend

hi everyone!

today is MLK day so i'm off. slept in, D cooked some delicious egg beater/reduced fat feta cheese scrambled eggs for me and light wheat toast. it was very yummy :) i'm loving that we're both on this diet together. he's down 9, i'm down 6. back to my comfort zone of 136. the highest i saw on the scale january 1 was 142.6 - and it definitely scared me. it feels good to be back down.

stayed OP this weekend, only dipped into about 12-15 flex points over the 3 days so that's good. i made some delicious chicken yesterday - breadless chicken parm as i was calling it. i put some chicken tenderloins (99% fat free) in the oven at about 375 with some EVOO & salt & pepper. once those cooked i topped them with store bought spaghetti sauce, little bit of fat free ricotta (which i would cut out next time, since you could barely taste it) and some skim mozzarella cheese and cooked until it melted. it was SO yummy, i surprised myself. and the chicken was so juicy.

at the store i picked up the new lean cuisine flat bread melts: chicken philly & chicken pesto so those will be nice additions to my lunch rotation, i will let you know how they taste :)

i also snagged some new cherry chocolate diet dr. pepper. GROSS. it tasted like tootsie rolls. i'm not a fan.

light dinner tonight with D & his mom. i'm just going to get some soup i think, nothing fancy, i think we're going to panera. and then i might eat some leftover chicken parm from last night. yum!

have a great day!!

Wow! You are rocking it! That is great. Down 6 lbs!!!! That's HUGE! The chicken parm recipe sounds great too. I saw a recipe for it on Hungry girl where you dipped the chicken in egg and then rolled it in ground up Fibre one. Looked pretty tastey but I haven't tried it yet.I honestly don't know if I've ever even had chicken parm. Hmm Maybe it's about time.

Glad you had a great weekend. How are you making out on the gym front?

I basically have the banana bran muffin recipe memorized since I make a batch every week. I got the recipe from Anne at Weight Watchers Eh? They are only one point and pretty tastey. You'd never guess they were only 1 point.

Here is the recipe if you want to try it out.

1 1/2 Cups All Bran
1/2 C Skim Milk
1/2 C Water
1 C Flour
1/4 C Splenda
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 ripe banana
3 egg whites
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Combine All Bran, water and milk and let sit for 20 mins.
In another bowl combine flour, Splenda, soda, powder and cinnamon.
Add egg whites and applesauce to All bran mixture. Mix well. Add dry ingredients and All Bran mix. Fold in chocolate chips.
Bake at 375 for about 18-20 mins.

Great work!

It’s nice when others are on the same program.

I do my chicken parm just like that!
I sear the chicken breasts first with a bit of thyme, rosemary, parsley, salt and pepper. Then I put the sauce on, with some mozzarella sprinkled on top and stick them in the oven. You're right, the chicken stays juicy and no breading- woo-hoo!
