Here is what the Whalens are eating this week!
*** Just as a disclaimer because I get this question a lot. I do eat normal foods again. Once I hit my goal weight, I went back to normal food. I now just use daily exercise as a way to maintain my goal. I stopped the diet in May and have pretty much eaten what I wanted since then. And yes, that includes sweets!
Monday) Italian Chicken Soup (recipe below), Cornbread
Tuesday) Pizza (Domino's!), Apple Crisp for dessert for small group
Wednesday) Pancakes and Sausages, cooked apples
Friday) Country Style Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
Italian Chicken Soup:
1 medium onion, chopped
1 T. oil
28 oz can diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings
3 russet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 cans chicken broth
1 can tomato soup
1 1/2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning blend
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
10 oz. pkg frozen mixed vegetables
2-3 cups cooked, shredded chicken
In a Dutch oven, saute onion in oil until tender. Stir in tomatoes with liquid, broth, potatoes and seasonings. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Add vegetables and chicken, simmer, covered, for 25 minutes. (I usually simmer for several hours.)
This soup is good with french bread, cornbread, rolls, or garlic toast. Take your pick!
