Lunch for the week.
It is amazing how much I have learned by using a food scale. My counts became more accurate. I was able to start eating more in some areas (like protein) and learned that sometimes a spoonful of peanut butter is actually not just one serving.
I love weighing my food. It is just a habit now.
Because I have been learning and using a scale for so long I have more educated guesses as to how much is on my plate while we are eating out at a restaurant.
To stay sane some times I just need someone else to cook! (And clean up.)
So here is another chicken meal. Chicken is so good for you. Lean. High in Protein. Just overall yummy! I have been purchasing a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and using that throughout the week. Less prep, Less mess!
Here’s what is in the bowl:
71 grams (1/2 cup) Rice
65 grams (1/4 cup) Black Beans
57 grams (1/4 cup) Plain Greek Yogurt
32 grams (2 Tbsp) Salsa
3 oz Chicken
All of that comes to about 32 grams of protein and under 350 calories! Power lunch right there!
As a side note, I use greek yogurt for Everything! I substitute it for sour cream and mayo. I use is as a dressing on salads and have even tried baking with it! Low fat, high in protein, and keeps your gut healthy.
P.S. Number one grocery store ever… Wegmans!!
