I am usually not very creative in the kitchen, mostly I go thru the motions, but last night I whipped up some deliciousness in the kitchen. All I had to work with was a pound of ground chicken. Sooooo, my concoction is as follows...
Ground chicken, can of rotelle, bread crumbs, shredded parmesan cheese. Make into a meatloaf, bake for 45 minutes, sprinkle with cheese the last 15 minutes. WOW, couldn't believe I actually made something new and boy was it delicious, even my picky DH loved it. Added a side of vermicelli with garlic and olive oil and a can of field peas. Ooooh so yummy. 420 calorie meal.
This morning I decided to experiment with the Vi Shake I've been drinking. Vi power, 1/2 cup almond milk, teaspoon of instant coffee, teaspoon of cocoa and a banana - VIOLA - I'm calling it..... Lisa's Latte.
The nutrition shake I committed to for a month is working well, keeps me full, no cravings, and plenty of energy. Can't wait to see if I lose weight at the end of 30 days. This is kinda my own personal, scientific experiment - playing with meal replacement supplements and seeing how it affects weight and seeing if it can sustain me through my workouts - we shall see - day 3 - so far so good.
Gotta have some fun every now and then in the kitchen I guess, but glad it turned out to be yummy. Create your own masterpiece in the kitchen it does wonders for the taste buds and self-esteem.
