Fooled my kid into a Healthy Junk food night LOL
Thursday, August 02, 2007
Okay so we usually have a junk food night so last nigh my kid wanted Fajitas. No problem. What he didn't know was that I could manage to make those healthy too. So in the kitchen I went stir frying peppers (reed , green and yellow) and onions and browning the chicken. Fixed his plate (Don't know why at 13 he still wants me to wait on him) and presented it.
As he was ohhing and ah'ing at how good the Fajita's were, he noticed somethng green, that didnt appear to be a pepper.
'Hey mom, what is this?' he says
'Oh just some cilantro' I lied
So on he chomped. After dinner as I was preparing to put the food away, I asked 'do you want any more'? 'No I'm full he replied and sulked back off to his online computer games.'
A few minutes later I asked, 'How'd you like the spinach dish?'
'What spinach dish?'
I couldn't help but laugh and told him that the green stuff in the Fajita was actually spinach. Expecting to hear chnts of gross, and yuck. I was instead greeted by. "Hey that was really good".
Main dish 237 calories and a little not so bland brown rice on the side and my kid says, 'That was really good'
And to top it off no one got hungry later. I totally missed my nighttime snack. LOL!! Wound up coming in under calories for the day 8-(
Another thing that has got me psyched is the fact that even though I joined on the 11th, I didn't start correctly tracking my weight til the 15th when I bought my scale. I cannot complain about 4 lbs in 2 1/2 weeks. Dont really know what I weighed before then.
