I know, you are probably thinking, healthy fried onion rings ?
Well, I consider them healthy. Here's how:
Batter ( in separate bowl):
2 Tablespoons Nonfat Greek Yogurt
2 Tablespoons Egg Beaters ( no cholesterol!)
Mix very well to a batter consistency
Breading (in separate bowl):
equal parts yellow cornmeal and flour- For one small onion ( me and Jeff), I used about 1/3 cup of cornmeal and 1/3 cup Organic Whole Grain AP Flour.
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Dash of Parm Cheese
Heat 1 tablespoon smart balance oil in pan on medium. Slice onions into rings. Separate Rings. Dip and shake em in the batter...
then dip and cover them in the breading bowl...
Drop em in the hot pan! A few minutes on each side.
I microwaved brussel sprouts, then popped em in the toaster oven. While all of this was going on, I was browning chicken breasts in a pan and then microwaved a sweet potato for 5 minutes in the microwave.
I topped the potato with Nonfat greek yogurt because the chicken serving looked too small (I prefer to eat a lot of lean protein )
So that was dinner for four/two. I made four chicken breasts (two for lunch tomorrow for each of us and enough onions and brussel sprouts too)!
Dancing with the stars Latin Cardio: I did 3 of the 4 dances and the toning/strength section.
Gym: Elliptical 45 minutes.
I played suduko, read some of my never ending wonderful book, and had to comprehend the dance steps! I am getting better every time!
Shopping! Well, sort of. I returned something to the store and bought Jeff a sweater and shirt I had been eyeing up, they were now on sale even more than before. He likes them!
I really enjoy and miss dancing. I am still looking for a new gym with classes, but also trying to sort out finances etc.
I like grocery shopping too, usually spending money bothers me a ton. For groceries though, I almost always feel better knowing I am buying healthy things that will give me energy.
We tried to book our romantic getaway trip but the website didn't let us through. So try try again tomorrow.
Happy Eve of New Years Eve!! Does anyone have exciting plans? W
-we still haven't made any definite plans.
