Chicken & Broccoli Stir Fry

Stir Frying is a healthy and delicious way to create quick and nutritious meals that the entire family can enjoy.  It’s a nice way to use fresh produce before it spoils. Stir Frying does not have to be Asian cuisine. By changing the spices, a stir fry can be Italian, Mexican or Cajun flavors.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb. boneless chicken breast
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 broccoli crown, steamed
  • snow peas
  • carrot
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • garlic and spices

DIRECTIONS:

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chicken and garlic until chicken is slightly pink on the inside, about 2 minutes per side; add vegetables and spices to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink in the middle and vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes.

Super Skinny Smoothie

When I need to drop a few pounds quickly, I always rely on smoothies.  If I  use a smoothie as a meal replacement, I always add a scoop of protein powder and I eat a lot of fresh veggies and fruit. This particular smoothie is super low in calories and high in nutrients.  It can be used as a snack and it’s great for controlling those unwanted cravings.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons low fat ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • handful of ice
  • 1 packet stevia

DIRECTIONS:

Mix in a blender until smooth.

Another new study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Volume 116, November 2016 concluded that improved diet quality was not associated with increased cost.

Is it really more expensive to eat healthy?

According to a study released by the USDA last week,  it is actually less costly to consume fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods than foods high in saturated fat, sugar, and sodium.

This is what they found:

  •  Foods low in calories for a given weight tend to have a higher price when the price is measured per calorie—vegetables and fruits without added fat or sugar are low in calories and, by this metric, tend to be a very expen- sive way to purchase food energy.
  • Conversely, still using the price-per-calorie measure, less healthy (moderation) foods high in saturated fat and/or added sugars tend to be high in calories and have a low price per calorie.
  • However, when measured on the basis of edible weight or average portion size, vegetables and fruit are less expensive than most dairy, protein, and moderation foods.

Are You Cheater?

Print 
Are you a cheater? I’m not referring to cheating on a test or significant other.  This is referring to diet and the reason you are not losing weight. Do you check in to your weekly or monthly weight loss session with the perfect food diary. Honestly, if you are consuming exactly what you have recorded then you should lose weight.  Perhaps you snuck a few cookies or a piece of pizza when you swear to all that you’ve been on a strict diet.  And let’s not forget those few beers or glasses of wine at the end of the day that you may have guzzled but refuse to acknowledge, even to yourself! These are just some of the ways we can tell ourselves and others that we are on a more straight and narrow path with our health goals than we actually are! Though in this case, the person we are really cheating is ourselves!
