Curry Chicken Salad with Carrots, Capers & Avocado for Lunch!

Daily Tidbit:  Curry is good for the brain!  Check this out:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with Walnuts
½ cup plain Oatmeal, cooked with Fat Free Milk, in microwave
2 tbsp of plain Walnuts
Plain Cinnamon sprinkled on top
5 oz. glass of OJ
Regular Coffee, black

Snack: 2 Turkey Breakfast sausage links

Lunch: Curry Chicken Salad Wrap with Veggies
“Small” flour wrap with Curry Chicken Salad (Recipe below)
½ Avocado
Water with Lemon
Regular Coffee, black

Snack: ¼ cup dry roasted lightly salted Peanuts, Fat Free Milk

Snack:  20 raw baby Carrots  

Turkey Meatball Snack!

Turkey Meatball nutrition info

Snack:  3 small Turkey Meatballs in Organic No Salt added Marinara (Trader Joe's)
Fat Free Chocolate Milk

I like this as a snack, because for 3 meatballs I get only 65 calories, 3.5 grams of fat and 6.5 grams of protein (of course this doesn't include the tomato sauce on the meatballs).  The sodium is higher than I would want, but the other aspects make it satisfying and filling until dinner time rolls around!

Whole Wheat Margherita Pizza for Dinner!

Dinner:  Pizza Night:  Tyler Florence’s Margherita Pizza
Whole Wheat Pizza dough topped with homemade Tomato Sauce, fresh Mozzarella cheese & fresh Basil (Recipe at the link below.  We used pre-made dough though instead of making homemade.)
Red Wine

Dessert:2 Fudge Coconut Caramel Cookies (We ran out of Apples yesterday so I easily succumbed to poor will power when I saw my hubs eating these – they were tooooooooooooooooo good!)

Amy’s Curry Chicken Salad Recipe:
Chicken Breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
1 cup of grated Carrots
2 tbsp Capers
1-2 tbsp of Olive Oil based Mayo (this is half the fat and calories of regular Mayo!)
1 tsp Yellow Curry Powder
Ground pepper to taste (no need for salt on this one – the capers do the job for you!)

*I didn’t use fruit this time, but chopped dried apricots would have been a great addition, or even just some raisins or fresh grapes, even little chunks of apple.
