Last night we made our very first meal using the Cook Yourself Thin method. We made Steak and Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes. I know, you're making an EEWWWWW face right now aren't you? Trust me, I was too when I first saw it done on the show. But, again, I thought, we'll give it a shot. I desperately need to get healthier and I have tried so many things, but it's hard to stick to diets. That's why I wanted to try this, it's not dieting, it's basically changing how you cook.
Can I tell you, this was soooooo yummy! I mean mouth-watering yummy! Here is a link to the recipe on Lifetime's website: Steak & Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes
Hubby was concerned when he saw the steak was seasoned with fresh rosemary, salt and pepper-that's it, just those 3, he couldn't figure out how it would be good with just those 3, and I'm not a fan of rosemary, so I wasn't looking forward to it. However, it was the Cauliflower potatoes I was really concerned about. But wowzers! It was all delicious! And filling! Here it is:
Yes, that is 3 slices of flank steak you see, not that much steak, and not very many potatoes, but, it was sooo filling! And did I mention mouth-watering delicious! Oh! And did I mention, this whole plate was less then 400 calories! Seriously, less then 400 calories for a whole meal! How's that for yummy, delicious, healthy food!
We decided after last night's success (we bow down to the cooks on the show, we were so wrong in our thinking that it wouldn't be good) we are going to keep on trying out these recipes and see what happens. I'm hoping within a few weeks that I will be feeling healthy enough to start exercising again and hopefully within a year or so I will be at my target weight. That would be so awesome! Wish me luck!
I do have a card to show you, my neice is about to gradute from high school! I'll save that post for tomorrow. :)
