What's on the menu

Like I said yesterday, eating is so so vital to weight loss and maintenance.   So I will be posting a lot about food.  Here is today's menu:
Breakfast: 1 scrambled egg, 1/3 cup of homemade oatmeal.
Lunch:  Herbal Chicken Stir fry
-  I can't have any carbs, fruit, most veggies and sodium right now. (we'll discuss why another day)  So I was racking my brain on what to eat (that tastes good and how to cook it) and so I came up with this recipe which I fell in love with.  It's easy, easy, and so so healthy:
  • two chicken breasts thawed
  • two green peppers
  • one large sweet onion
  • 1/8-1/4 cup whipping cream 
  • fresh oregano and rosemarry
  • poultry seasoning
  • extra virgin olive oil
Take your chicken and cube it. Put it in a frying pan with extra virgin olive oil and 3 stalks of rosemary and 3 stalks of oregano (pick off the leaves and toss the stem/stalk) Cook until chicken is mostly done then add julianne onions and largely cut green peppers, add one more stalk of oregano and rosemary.  It's done when chicken is done and onions become soft, your peppers still need to have a slight crunch to them.  Pour whipping cream over top sprinkle with poultry seasoning (1/2-1 TB). Stir and serve. 
If you'd like you can serve in a tortilla or over long grain rice.  I just ate it plain and loved it.

Now dinner will be:
6oz. stake, asparagus, and a sweet potato

This meal plan is ultra delicious and ultra healthy.   Eating like this is enjoyable and will also keep us on track to loose some.
Eat up!


  1. You can't eat fruit or veggies?!

    I would die . . .

  2. It was really, really hard!! I only could eat meat, cucumbers, onions, asparagus and green peppers. -That's it
