Recipe share for the new year?

Recommended Posts

As we head into 2022, someone else started a thread on refocusing. To help with that I thought it would be great if we can share some recipes we all love that are healthy :) I'll start.

1) I do ground chicken taco's a lot! Easy make ahead that reheats well.

  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 can green chilies
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1/2 C chicken broth instead of Water in the taco meat
  • Flour tortilla - I get the fajita size. You could leave this out and put the mixture on a salad mix and it's delicious!
  • Pico to top

2) Another one I do is a cold Thai Chicken salad like this one (https://pinchofyum.com/chopped-thai-chicken-salad#tasty-recipes-38805-jump-target). I buy pre-packaged slaw veggies (no dressing) to replace the cabbage/carrots, and I leave out the serrano's and blend the frozen mango into the dressing rather than having it mixed in. I also leave the sugar out of the dressing as I don't think it needs it. A little higher in fat with the sesame oil and Peanut Butter, but I eat about 2/3 of a serving and am stuffed and I keep it in the fridge in individual servings for up to a week.

      I don't know when I reached Onederland but just weighed myself @198. 😁

      Constantly amazing myself. This is probably a normal experience for all of us on a WL journey.
      This morning I was at 174 pounds (78.9 kilos). I can perceive that my brain hasn't really caught up to this yet, as I still feel obese, even though I am close to being considered a normal weight, not even overweight. The smaller clothes, the higher fitness level, the great blood work results, the energy- these all tell me a totally different story!
      I have NEVER EVER been, never, not once in my life, nada, zip, zilch, zero times, been "thin." I think this explains some of the disconnect between the reality of my body and the stuckness of my brain. I do have confidence that my mind will catch up soon ❤️
      Not really having the experience of true hunger yet, but I can perceive the peristalsis of my digestive tract. And I am getting very good at spotting head hunger, and simply noticing it, like a Buddhist.

      I ordered the Barbecue Protein Crisps here from BariatricPal, and find them quite tasty. The Ranch flavour, not so much. They are very filing and have a satisfying crunch.
      I continue to shrink, and am amazed at the changes all over my body. Visually, it is striking to me. In the mirror, I look thin to my eyes, but I don't feel thin, although I can see more bones and veins and tendons and floppy skin. Cardio-wise, It takes a lot more effort to get my heart rate up and I'm now monitoring which heart zone I can get into and for how long. My resting heart rate is the lowest it's ever been.
      If I think about it, and I left myself feel it for a time, I weep (like, boohoo cry) with joy. I am so grateful to myself, and proud of myself for having the courage to have taken the leap to better health.
