This week we're sharing recipes. What is a favorite recipe that you've found that is good for you? It can be anything…dessert, entree or side dish. I'm always looking for new recipe. I can't wait to hear about it!
Remember last week's motto?
Let's say it again…
Quitting is not an option!
I have had to remember those options over and over again…especially tonight when I got on the scale and had only lost .2 lbs. But at least that is a loss. I don't think that really accurately affects my losses. I feel like I have actually lost more. My clothes are fitting so much better. So I'll give it time and see what happens.
Now on to this week's topic…a recipe.
An unexpected side benefit has happened on my weight loss journey. I am cooking more.
Let me explain the significance of this. I have unashamedly confessed before that I am a fish out of water in the kitchen. Cooking has never come easy for me. I usually just give up and end up cooking something pre-done.
That is rapidly changing. In my quest to eat healthy, I am overcoming my fear of the kitchen. I would rather eat well than eat quick. I am also finding recipes that the whole family loves. The following, which came from E-mealz is one of those…
- 1 c & 2 T Heart Smart Bisquick
- 1/4 c FF milk
- 2 T Worcestershire Sauce
- 1/2 t minced garlic
- 1/2 c FF egg substitute
- 1 onion finely chopped (I only use 1/2 onion)
- 1 c RF sharp cheddar cheese
Crust – Mix 1 c Bisquick & FF milk until soft dough forms. Transfer to a floured surface and knead 5 timers. Roll into a 6"round and place in a sprayed 9" pie pan pressing into pan & up sides.
Filling – Brown beef, onion, Worcestershire Sauce & garlic. Stir in 2 T Bisquick; remove & cool. Mix egg sub & cheese. Spoon beef mix onto crust and top with cheese mixture.
Bake for 30 mins @ 375.
The official recipe splits it into 6 servings at 6 pp for the Weight Watcher's plan. I usually end up splitting it into 8 servings. It pairs nicely with a salad or fruit. I'm sorry I don't know what the actual calories are.

I seem to be getting mixed results for a weekly Weight Loss Wednesday topic. Do you really enjoy them or not? While we're discussing it, let's just make next week an open topic. I hope to see you then!
