Steak Nachos for Dinner!

Daily Tidbit:   I came across this healthy eating quiz that really made me think about what I eat and how often...and at the end it gave me a grade!  Cool.  I think it is worthwhile if you are in the midst of trying to eat more healthy and just want to see how you are only takes a couple minutes.
Check it out here:


Breakfast: Frosted Shredded Mini-Wheats & Cheerios & Walnuts
1/2 cup Frosted Shredded Mini-Wheats

1/2 cup Cheerios 
1 cup Fat Free Milk
2 tbsp Plain chopped Walnuts
5 oz OJ
Regular Coffee, black 


Though I sometimes choose to mix cereals to help cut sugar or calories or fat, this was just the result of total laziness when I finished the Mini-Wheats and didn't want to walk all the way to the garage (20 feet) to get a new box; I was still waking up after all!


Arugula with Beans, Apple Onion Chutney & Rosemary Potatoes

Lunch: Cold Salad
1 cup Arugula 
1/2 cup White Cannellini Beans (canned/ drained & rinsed)
1 cup Apple Onion Chutney (recipe below) 
Rosemary Roasted Potatoes (Yukon Golds diced and tossed with EVOO & Rosemary & Salt and baked at 425 for 30 minutes)
Water with Lemon
Plain Hot Green Tea


3 cups Plain Popcorn (popped in brown paper bag in microwave for 3 minutes)
Plain Hot Green Tea


Steak Nachos

Dinner:  Steak Nachos!

Organic Lower Sodium White Corn Tortilla Chips
1/4 cup each Part Skim Shredded Mozzarella Cheese & Cheddar Cheese
3 tbsp jarred Medium Salsa
Sirloin Tip Steak, sliced
1/2 Avocado
White Wine

Loved this site which helped me determine how long to cook my steak! 
I marinated the steak in a Balsamic Vinaigrette for 1 hour before cooking (though longer would have been ideal) and then Grilled it in my Cast Iron Grill Pan.

Dessert: 1 Local Liberty Apple, Water



Apple Onion Chutney Recipe:
Into Slow Cooker put:
1-2 tbsp EVOO, enough to cover bottom of Slow Cooker
4-6 cloves of Garlic Sliced
1 Large White Onion, thinly sliced
6 Apples of various sorts (I used both green & red apples), cut into bite sized chunks
3-4 shakes of Cinnamon
3-4 shakes of Curry
1 cup Low Sodium Chicken Broth

Stir everything together and cover, cooking on LOW for 4-6 hours.  When there is 1 hour remaining in the cooking time, add 1/2-1 cup of Craisins.
