@elliot_anne - Found this awesome recipe in my stash and thought you might like it!

Greek Quinoa Chicken Salad
3 oz raw boneless skinless chicken breast
1 cup cooked quinoa
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 black olives, chopped (i prefer kalamata)
1 tbsp each chopped parsley, cilantro, red onion
5 cherry tomatoes, halved
6 marinated artichoke hearts, sliced
1/4 cup chopped cucumber
1 tbsp feta cheese

Cook quinoa as per package directions. Cut chicken into small pieces and cook in non-stick pan. In a small bowl, combine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil. Whisk well. Gently toss quinoa with remaining ingredients, omitting feta. Pour oil mixture over salad, add pepper to taste and lastly stir in the feta cheese. Top with cooked chicken and enjoy!

I love this recipe because it makes a relatively small batch, my and the man like to have this as a lunch! I throw some seasoning on my chicken, like a little oregano or something to give it extra flavor. One thing about eating healthy - i definitely amp up my herbs and spices to add extra flavor!

unfortunately this probably won't be in my book much longer. Adam and I are starting the 'Paleolithic' diet this week.. Hopefully it's for the best! Any advice, ladies?

Hope you can find something yummy and healthy to eat for dinner FruityLoops!

Was fab in the end, wasn't much on the menu I liked but went for seabass with butternut squash puree and crayfish and chorizo butter (with seasonal veg n new potatoes) which was delicious n healthy! Grin Managed to resist the lemon n ginger cheesecake and abstained from dessert, but had a little whisky fruit cake since getting back to the in-laws Wink

That sounds yummy! I hear lots of times that the chef will make you something healthy not on the menu too! One of the blogs I read is vegan and she went to some restaurant in Disneyland and the chef made her an amazing vegan meal off the menu!

I was bad today... in the sense that I woke up at 10.30 this morning, it's not 7.00 at night, and this is the first time I'm eating all day. Yea, no bueno.

However, my cute little snack tray looked so appetizing (to my half-starved, delirious brain) that I decided to take a picture of it before devouring it. So, here you go.



I've got half an apple (ate the other half yesterday. Was a little too tart to eat the whole thing all at once), a banana, a hard-boiled egg, a few strawberries, a string cheese, and the heel of some yummy french bread my grocery store makes daily. Most of my lunches look like some form of this (my mom calls it a "snack tray") now that I'm vegetarian. Most of the time, though, my bread product is a PBJ sandwich, and I sub a tangerine for the strawberries (which were a special treat from my mom yesterday, YUM).

I realized that I am more of a nibbler than a meal eater...I love seeing the tips on keeping the nibbles healthy and in proportion!

I have already been using a lot of the tips (smaller plate, eat slower, drink water, no sugary drinks, etc.)...the one thing that works for me is writing everything down--I hate it, but just knowing I have to write it down keeps me from snacking a lot!

Getting enough protein is tough for me...I keep forgetting about eggs!  I love them but just don't think of them...I need to craft a huge sign for my fridge "EGGS!"... Cheesy

I think this thread has motivated me to prepare more things in advance...this weekend I will vow to prepare more veggie nibbles!

I just read through every single page!

The tip about putting rubber bands on your wrist and removing them was genius!  But, then I thought it would be weird wearing them at work...then I remembered that someone on here made a bracelet that had beads on it that she moved from one side to the other...does anyone remember seeing that bracelet at all?  I can't find it!  I am sure it is simple enough to do something similar...eight beads, some sort of band... Cheesy
