It's not just about joining another diet program...I've done that, Lord knows I've done that. It's about me doing something for me, finding what works, being more aware of what I'm eating, making a plan to be more active...just making a change. I started looking thru old Weight Watcher stuff, wanting to apply some of their points plan into my menus. I took a bit of break to jump on and read some blogs when I came across April's post about a recipe website called Skinny Taste. And it was like she was calling my name. This website has some Weight Watcher recipes, with old & new points values already calculated. So here's the plan. We're going to try a few of the recipes this week and then take some photos & do some reviews of the recipes along the way, you know like a Julia & Julia kind of thing. A very amateur version of that anyway.
So here are the recipes from this site that I plan to try for this week:
I don't plan on doing rice with the Santa Fe chicken, I'll be making this into more of an enchilada.
Let's hope our results taste as good as these photos look. It will be interesting to see how close we can re-create them. Interesting might be code for stressful, I'll let you know that as well.
Anyway I know this isn't a beauty post so for those of you who only come here for that, I apologize but I do have some beauty posts coming including a hits & misses from my recent shopping haul.
So wish me luck, we're off to the grocery store list in hand!
