What I'm Eating

Last Friday I shared a few of the new, healthy things I've been eating.  I thought I'd do that again this week!

For Breakfast:

I found a huge bag of grapefruits at Aldi for some ridiculously low price last week.  I've been eating them with my eggs for breakfast.  I am still kind of getting  used to the tangy, sweet, and sour flavor (I had never eaten grapefruit before this week).  I am not a huge fruit person, so I've been trying some new ones lately. 

For Lunch:

I've enjoyed this little treat as kind of a sweet "dessert" a few days this week.  I got the idea from my cousins who have been doing Prism for over 12 weeks now.  

First you take some plain Greek yogurt, and this strawberry Simply Fruit spread, which is sweetened with real fruit juice, so it is Prism-friendly... 

Then you put them together and mix them up

And have strawberry yogurt

You get Greek yogurt filled protein and all kinds of good stuff, plus essentially fruit.  It's sweet and delicious, and I'd say it's a much healthier option than what I used to pack in my lunch everyday:

For dinner:

I made this chicken crock pot chili the other night, picture from Pinterest:

And just for some laughs, here is my much uglier version, with lots of added sour cream (I was late getting home from school that night, so the edges got a little burnt, giving the whole thing a nice, brown color.  It still tasted great, though!):

It may not look the best, but it was delicious!  And full of healthy things like beans, corn, and chicken.  

I also made chicken stir fry one night, Luke's favorite meal, and still totally legal for me!  Minus the crunchy noodles.  this picture was taken a long time ago.

And I've been making a lot of chicken or pork with sauteed veggies.  I've been loving sauteed onions and zucchini (or yellow squash).


I've been enjoying Emerald Mixed Nuts this week like they're going outta style.  Seriously, I never knew I even liked walnuts, but they are my new favorite thing. My cousin gave us the tip at our Prism class that one lid-full is 1/4 cup, which is 1 serving.  AKA, the perfect snack

Restaurant meals:

We went out to eat once this week, and it was to Applebees.  I was starving, and as soon as we got there, all I wanted was pasta.  But I held out and got something else that looked pretty filling, but was legal for me to eat: steak and veggies! I had never ordered a steak in a restaurant before because I'm normally more of a chicken girl, but I thought, why the heck not?  A salad just wasn't gonna do it for me that night. It was delicious.  (Not pictured: mashed potatoes.  I'm not allowed to eat those for the first 6 weeks of Prism which starts next week, so I thought I'd at least get my last taste).
