a little bit of healthy eating

As of this morning, I am down 19 lbs!  That has happened over almost 2 months.  It has taken some work on my part in order to shed those unwanted pounds.  And, I am going to give some credit to Pinterest.  You can always count on Pinterest.

I have turned to that site in order to find healthier choices when I am picking out food.  I have come across a few new recipes that seems pretty healthy and tasty.  A winning combo.  So, I wanted to share.

Yesterday I made a dip for fruit, mainly for the girls.  It just took a mixture of yogurt and nutella.  Pair that up with some strawberries, and that is a decent snack. In the Pinterest link, it calls for greek yogurt.  But, you know I am not going to find that.  I just used regular, plain yogurt.

I have been looking for things I can make for lunch.  I came across this unconventional avocado chicken salad recipe.  It was a major success!  Very tasty!

Working out everyday isn't the hard part of losing weight.  I think making smart choices in the foods I eat is the hardest part.  Having good food and making it seem like I am not missing out on anything is what I am focusing on.

Hope you like these as much as I did.  Oh, and last night I made baked chicken fajitas (no picture, sorry!) and they were really good.  Of course, I would have liked them even more with some sour cream, cheese, and lettuce.  But, I am cutting back.  Even without those extra toppings, they were pretty good.  And, pretty low in fat and calories!

Wow!!! Keep up the good work! The recipes look great especially the avacado chicken salad. Avacado is my weakness and the reason I can't lose weight, I eat too much of it!!

Thanks, Stephanie! Yes, avocados are rather yummy. And, kind of fatty, but the good kind of fat. It is all about moderation, huh? I could tear up a bowl of guacamole and chips. Both will do you in! :)
