Cut 2 boneless chicken breasts into strips. Cut 1 red, 1 green, 1yellow and 1 orange bell pepper into strips, slice up one onion. Saute the chicken in 1-2 T. olive oil, remove to a plate, add peppers and onion to the pan along with 2 T. balsamic vinegar, saute until peppers start to soften, add chicken back to pan and cover and simmer for about 5 min. Just before serving add a little more balsamic vinegar. YUM YUM and so pretty!!!
Some of the Healthy Choice Cafe frozen steamers are about 220 calories each. For a mid-day or late day snack that is more filling on those days when you just need a little more they work great. Most have lots of veggies in them also.
You can make healthier choices when you treat yourself to a tasty Starbucks (or Barnes & Noble Cafe!) beverage: ask for skim milk (I believe the default is 2%, and remember that the soy milk isn't fat free). If you want a syrup - or if the drink comes with flavors-, ask if they have the sugar-free variety. Opt out of the whip cream - painful, I know, but the drinks are still tasty!
Hot chocolates (my favorites) contain some vanilla to make them a little sweeter, so if you order one, ask for the sugar free vanilla instead of the regular. That will lower the drink's caloric count.
