Monday, Monday

Yesterday was not the best day for eating on my part...and I can't even tell you why.

I went out to lunch with my dad and I got a salad and some pasta, only ate about 1/4 of it and brought it home. That wasn't so bad. But then later on I finished the rest of my pasta, ate a 100 calorie pack of popcorn, and eventually ended up eating a bowl of cereal with skim milk. I felt starving...and I made bad choices. I am accountable to myself and to you guys!

Luckily I am back on track today! Eating healthy, exercise...I'm being a good girl.

My recipe of the day is a delicious lower calorie beef and broccoli! I loove Chinese food...and this one is great!

Beef and Broccoli
Serves: 4


    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 (10.5 ounce) can low sodium beef broth
    2 tablespoons lite soy sauce
    1 pound boneless round steak, cut into bite size pieces
    1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger root
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    4 cups chopped fresh broccoli


1. In a small bowl, combine flour, broth, sugar, and soy sauce. Stir until flour is dissolved.

2. In a large skillet or wok over high heat, cook and stir beef 2 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Stir in broth mixture, ginger, garlic, and broccoli. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes, or until sauce thickens

3. Cook rice according to package directions. Serve broccoli and beef over 1/2 cup rice. (Nutritional Breakdown INCLUDES 1/2 cup brown rice with this meal)

Let's not compare it to restaurant beef and broccoli...I don't want to know.

  1. The sodium in stuff always gets me, I hate it. It makes me retain and my ankles momentarily turn into kankles and it's not cute. I bet the pasta threw your ass for a loop, huh? When I eat carbs - I only want more carbs. And more. And more and then I'm starving and all it's doing is bloating those fat cells we try to shrivel up in our belly. White starches like to make residence in belly space - I am working on eviction notices for all ten million of them whores in mine. I seriously hate this belly, but even now at 39 pounds down it seems the same time. It's not, but it sure seems that way. Ok, I'm officially done rambling on this comment.
