Let's Eat: Week 8

April 20, 2011

Watching My Weight Wednesday

Another week has come and gone, and I find myself very pleased. I am not the skinny 19 year old girl I was when I married my love, but, today, I am the smallest that I have been in well over 4 years! I cannot say enough about this diet that I am on. It really, really works.

Monday, I was in Wal-Mart (UGH) shopping for the week and wondering what I was going to make for dinner. I needed something quick, easy, and yummy. Oh, and low-carb! So, we're coupon shopping when my youngest son spies the "Sample Lady"! My kids live for samples in the grocery store! So, we mosey on over and they wipe out her stash of angel food cake with strawberries and cool-whip. In the ruins, I saw a little cup of something with chicken in it. "Oh, what's this?", I asked. "It's chicken salad," she replied. So, I tasted. It's not often they offer something that fits within my boundaries. Now listen, I appreciate a sample just like the next girl, but, I know that they're set up to sell their product that's usually out of my budget and I'm usually pretty good about just walking away without buying it. Oh, but, this was so good that I actually bought the stuff to make her Chicken Salad. Here's the recipe, Cajun style:

You'll need to combine a bag of Tyson Grilled & Ready oven roasted, diced chicken (heated), some chopped celery and green onions, a splash of lemon juice and about 1/2 - 3/4 cups of mayo. The lady added red, seedless grapes to hers, but I left them out of mine. Your choice. People, it was good! You can eat it alone or on bread. Obviously, I ate mine sans bread.

"You say, 'Food is for the stomach, and the stomach is for food.' This is true, though someday God will do away with both of them."1Corinthians 6:13

"Those who think it is all right to eat anything must not look down on those who won't. And those who won't eat certain foods must not condemn those who do, for God has accepted them." Romans 14:3

I love it. Sounds very tasty. Since you are doing low-carb, have you tried sprouted bread, like Ezekial Bread? It helpe me stay on track with my diet and gives me my "fix" ;) It is best toasted, in my opinion.
I'm so happy your diet is working for you ~ I know how good I feel seeing the # on the scale drop!
