This was my dinner last night. Looks pretty high in calorie, right? Well it's not! All this was just 420 calories and was super easy to make. First I sautéed some onion in a teaspoon of olive oil and then added my chicken and cooked with a cover on until the chicken was done. I seasoned with garlic powder, black pepper and the smallest dash of salt. Then I added some frozen broccoli and cauliflower with a tablespoon of water and covered that until the veggies were tender. When that was all said and done I added two wedges of laughing cow cheese (30 calories per wedge) and melted that into the mix and voila!! It tasted so indulgent, I would have never thought I wasn't eating chicken Alfredo. I will defiantly be making this again when I am craving something rich. Olive Gardens Chicken Alfredo dish is 1,440 calories. Granted I didn't have the noodles in mine but still, that's pretty impressive!
I am in the home stretch here with my first challenge of keeping consistent with my new lifestyle change for 21 days. I weigh in on Sunday and am really going to push myself this week to workout harder than I have been. I had my lemon water this morning and my oat revolution oatmeal for breakfast (110 calories) - I also got my huge cup of green tea in and will be working out soon after I post this. For lunch I had some cantaloupe, grapes and a hard boiled egg. Not as much as I normally would like to eat for lunch but today I just wasn't feeling it. For dinner I will be having a baked breaded pork loin with homemade baked sweet potato fries or chunks; just depends on what shape I feel like cutting them into tonight! lol
