Entry 395: Day 15 of 21
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
