What I Ate!

20 Sep

Hello Everyone! Its time for WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY! I hope you all enjoyed the post on HIIT! I felt like it was something really important that needed to be shared. I love finding new ways to live a healthy lifestyle..and when I do…I will tell you all! My week has been really crazy. I am starting to think that school social work is not what I want to do with my life. It is really confusing and scary when you don’t know exactly what is going to happen and exactly where you are going to end up! I truly believe my calling in life is to help overweight kids, teens, and adults. I hope that God opens up doors for me and leads me in the right direction. It is all in his hands! So….lets get started with what I ate on Wednesday!

Breakfast: I slept in a little too late, so breakfast had to be quick! I had a new granola bar I found in the store and it was so good! It actually kept me full until lunch. Now, I typically don’t like to have processed food in the mornings, but I have to leave extremely early for my internship and its sometime necessary! The ingredient list wasn’t long at all, which helps! Paired it with a banana!

Lunch: I got creative with my lunch! I mixed a can of light chunk tuna packed in water with 1/2 cup of fat free refried beans with 1/4 cup fat free cheddar and salsa! Microwaved it for about 1 minute! It was so good! Packed with protein so it kept me so full!

Dinner: We had shrimp in our house, so I went online and found a shrimp scampi recipe! It was from Eat Better America! It was so good! Basically it was whole wheat pasta, olive oil, garlic, spinach, shrimp, and tomatoes! I absolutely loved it! Shrimp is packed with protein and is so good for you!

Snack: My snack was simple! 1 container of Yoplait Greek Yogurt with 1/5 ounce of peanuts! I used the strawberry fruit on the bottom yogurt so it tasted like peanut butter and jelly! So good!

Mixing up foods and coming up with creative dishes really helps me stay on track! Have fun with your food! I try not to eat the same thing all of the time…That way my metabolism doesn’t get used to it! Also, it keeps me from getting bored and giving up! One day…Just try mixing random things together! You’ll find you come up with some really tasty things! 🙂

Live healthy and God bless xoxo M

Crock Pot Stuffed Peppers!

13 Aug

green peppers

Peppers are in season! I don’t know about you…but I am always looking for new ways to incorporate fresh vegetables into my diet! I am a comfort food lover! Anything warm and creamy and gooey is right up my ally! Also, I am a VOLUME eater! I love to see my plate all filled up! These stuffed peppers are perfect! They are SO filling and SO good. Also, they go GREAT with the mashed potato recipe I previously posted!

5 Green bell peppers
1 pound lean ground turkey breast
1/2 cup chopped onion
15 ounce tomato sauce
1/2 cup instant rice
salt and pepper to taste

Cut tops off of peppers and clean out center. Mix turkey, rice, onion, salt, pepper, and half of the tomato sauce. Stuff peppers.
Spray crockpot and use remaining tomato sauce on bottom of crock pot. Place peppers in crock pot. Cook on high 1 hour and then low until done.
Weight Watchers Points+ = 5pts+ for one pepper

ENJOY!! These are one of my favorites!!
