A Food Blog

Saturday, October 08, 2011

I see food blogs all the time. I love reading about and seeing what other people eat while on their journey to healthier living. After I fixed my quick lunch today, I thought, "I should take a picture of that and post it in a blog." After I logged the calories, I was even more impressed!

I had some cooked, shredded chicken breasts in the fridge. (I borrowed that idea from LISAINMS. She cooks up a pan, shreds the meat, and freezes it.) I weighed out the chicken and added a little chipotle seasoning. That went in three hard taco shells with a sprinkling of Mexican blend cheese, tomatoes, picante, and romaine. I added a dab of Greek yogurt in place of sour cream. All for 287 calories! When I ate a handful of grapes, it topped the scale at 312 cals. I love meals like that!

    Wow, that looks amazing. And might I add, YOU have done tremendously well in your weight loss during the time I've been away.....I think you've lost at least 10 more pounds since the last time I was on Spark People in July! Congrats on all your hard work!

    Looks delicious! I'll have to remember that idea of shredding chicken and refrigerating or freezing for quick lunches like that - smart girls! :)

    That looks really good!! Good move to use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I use light, but should reach for the yogurt more often. Nice job on the food blog!
