Thank you so much for all your positive comments on my journey to healthier eating and living....it helps keep me motivated to carry on. Tomorrow (Wednesday) I'll go for my weigh in....kinda excited cause my scales show I've lost about 3 1/2 pounds!
This afternoon I made chicken salad for supper. Here's what I used:
1 - 13 oz. can 98% fat free chicken breast in water
1 small can of crushed pineapple, drained very well
grapes (I used purple seedless)
Lite mayo (just enough to make mixture moist)
I also used a SMALL amount of powered sugar - probably about 1 tablespoon
Drain water off chicken, then chop on a plate
Thoroughly drain ALL the juice off the pineapple
Mix all ingredients together and serve with crackers
The chicken is 1 point for 1/3rd cup
Pineapple is 2 points for 1/2 cup
I didn't count the grapes, lite mayo or pecans so not sure exactly what the points would be for a serving of the chicken salad but I'd say no more than 5 points for a very generous portion
I've had a couple of people asking about the points value on the cake I posted over the weekend - I gave the points with the recipe - 4 points per serving. I will try and list the points value of every recipe but if I don't I will try and list the information so you can figure the points for yourself.
Now here's where I need some suggestions from those of you that want to participate in a recipe swap or healthy eating linky party....I've never hosted a link party but from what I'm reading on other blogs, the linky system that has been used in the past is now going to charge something like $24.00 a year to use their services...not something I'm interested in doing right now. So I'd love to hear from ya'll the best way we can all share our recipes and "link" to each other so we can get wonderful recipes and support each other on our journey to better living.
On a very different note, I got word today that the husband of a friend of mine suffered a massive heart attack yesterday, he "coded" twice in the hospital and they put a pacemaker in, which is only operating at about 10%....he is only 56. Please keep this family in your prayers.
