Roasted Chicken & Veggies

Chicken with Veggies for Lunch!

Breakfast: Bowl of Cheerios!
1 cup Cheerios with Milk
5 oz. Glass of OJ
Cup of coffee, black
Cheerios is a great cereal because it tastes so sweet, but actually is very low in sugar.  Meanwhile it is loaded with vitamins and whole grains.


Lunch: Rotisserie Chicken with Veggies
Rotisserie Chicken, white meat
Sautéed Escarole with White Beans, cooked in EVOO, garlic & red pepper flake/ salt and a little low sodium chicken broth
Pan Browned Sweet Potatoes (Microwaved first to soften then cooked in EVOO & Salt in cast iron pan)
½ Avocado
I topped everything with a few shakes of Parmesan Cheese for a little added flavor
Glass of Water

Snack:   1 oz of Dark Chocolate (72% Cacao/ Trader Joe’s makes this affordable)
Cup of Coffee, black

Brought Spinach Bean Salad to the BBQ!

Memorial Day BBQ!

Flax Seed Chips from Trader Joe’s with “Fresh” Salsa (Flax Seed is a great source of Omega-3s!)
Glass of White Wine

2 Beef Hotdogs with Dijon mustard (no buns – saving carbs for dessert!)
Spinach Bean Salad with Light Red Kidney Beans, Cherry Tomatoes, Corn, Red Onion, Carrots, Orange pieces, Cucumber and fresh cut Cilantro, tossed with Trader Joe’s Balsamic Vinaigrette
Glass of White Wine

*I love Trader Joe’s Balsamic Vinaigrette for nights that I’m too lazy to make a homemade dressing.  It is also a favorite of Nutrition Expert Joy Bauer, check it out:
