    1 tsp curry powder
    2 or 3 tbsp of fat free or low fat mayo
    1 tbsp mango chutney
    salt and pepper to taste

    mix mango chutney, mayo and curry powder in a bowl then add chix, celery and grapes and mix. It makes a delicious, low fat chx salad.

    I just wing it with the measurements but I figured that's about what I use.

    I made this last night. It was delicious. I'll definitely keep making it. Thanks!
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    I've been exceeding my exercise goals and ignoring my diet.

    Not just for the anniversary celebration, but this weekend, too. Consequently, I've actually gained 2 lbs since we started. And it isn't 2 lbs of muscle, I can tell you that much.

    My total intake each day should be about 10 or 11 blocks each of protein, carbs, and fat. If I want to lose weight, I need to eat more protein than carbs. These are the most recent totals that I just tallied a few minutes ago, yikes:

    Friday's total - 15p, 16 ½ c, 10f
    Saturday's total - 8 ½ p, 15c, 12f
    Sunday's total (today) - 10 ½ p, 6c, 11f

    At least I was back on track today....

    I use this for a lot of applications. The amount below will make a couple portions.

    4 tomatoes (quartered and "guts" removed*)
    chopped fresh basil**
    1 finely diced red onion
    salt and pepper to taste.

    For a snack I take toasted, sliced baquette and smear a bit of goat cheese on it then add this topping for bruschetta and some Italian dishes and salads.

    * If you are frugal and hate the thought of throwing out most of the tomato, the juice from the tomato "guts" can be used in a homemade salad dressing: Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dijon, drop of honey, salt and pepper and wisk. The juice from the tomatoes adds viscosity to the dressing.

    **Add 1/2 finely diced de-seeded jalepeno pepper and fresh cilantro and this becomes a homemade pico for tacos, mexican dishes, baked potato, etc.


    I usually will take half of the batch and make a pico and the other half gets the basil. It tastes much better when everything can marinate together.

    Oops, epic diet fail again this weekend, celebrating my hub's birthday.... Didn't think about it, didn't fill out my food journal until tonight, and here's the tally:

    Sat total – 9 ½ p, 16c, 21f
    Sun total – 10p, 14c, 15f

    (med-large piece of carrot cake -> 1p, 7c, 6f :horor: )

    For the green smoothie drinkers!

    I discovered that a good way to enjoy smoothies that are much greener, especially with really strongly bitter greens like turnip greens, is to use fresh ginger. Fruits tend not to have strong flavor, which really limits the amount and type of greens you can add if you want it to taste good. But damn, I just made a super green smoothie with a lot of turnip greens (they are strong), and it actually tastes good. I used a big chunk of fresh ginger, bigger than 1" square, and half of a giant mango. I also added sweetened coconut water, protein powder, and ground flaxseed, since I need protein and fat to balance the carbs.
