last week's post for more information.
Yesterday at the big weigh-in, I lost another 1.6 lbs! This brings my total up (or down) to 6.6 lbs. Yippee!
From the Weight Watchers' site, here's a recipe for Chicken Salad (yum)!
POINTS® Value: 3
Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 0 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Weight Watchers lightened up this sandwich favorite with reduced-calorie mayonnaise and sour cream. (For a Waldorf-like chicken salad, stir in 1/3 cup of diced apples and 2 tablespoons of chopped walnuts.*)
3/4 pound(s) cooked chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup(s) celery, finely diced
1/3 cup(s) dill pickle(s), or sweet gherkins, finely diced
1/4 cup(s) reduced-calorie mayonnaise
2 Tbsp reduced-fat sour cream
2 Tbsp parsley, fresh, chopped
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
Place all ingredients in a large bowl; mix until blended. Yields about 2/3 cup per serving.

You remember the shake recipe I posted from HungryGirl? I haven't tried that particular shake, but I have been using Vanilla Soy Milk in my smoothies! Soy milk, at least when mixed with fruit, isn't so bad. It's much better for you than milk. Give it a shot. If I get around to being brave enough to use it in cereal or lattes, I'll let you know.
I challenged one of my fellow co-members to make something new before we saw each other again, and now I'm issuing the challenge to you too! If you're stuck in a food rut, pull out those cookbooks and try something new. Or, try one of the recipes I have listed up here. Then, come back and tell me about it!
Until next time, bon apetit!
