Uh Yum Yum!

i am officially on a food watch! since i've been home i've noticed i've gain a few pounds or inches...i'm not calling it a diet, because those don't work! so, instead, i'm watching what i eat, not that i don't do it already, but i'm buckling down down...

at school i rarely ate fast food, but since i've been home, and because of working, i've been eating more of it...for the past couple of weeks i've cut back giving in once to BK when my and the bf need food really badly (it's also not good for your diet or "food watching" to love food and be in a relationship with someone who loves it as much as you)

but, i've been doing good cutting back on the fast food...i did evaluate how i've been eating at home and at school to see what the difference may be and at school i walked a heck of a lot more...i tried walking during my lunch break a few weeks ago, but walking at noon in 90 degree weather or having rain fall consecutively for days doesn't quite help the cause...

i haven't gained much that people notice, but i notice and i have to get back on track.

keeping with healthy eating, i was so hungry today and i wanted something GOOD for dinner...after browsing the cabinets and freezer i finally found SOMETHING to eat!

Stir-Fried String Beans

what you need:

baby green and yellow whole peas

rice (white or brown)


salt & pepper

fresh or jarred garlic in water

you can add meat to this (chicken, beef or pork)

boil the beans in a covered pot of lightly salted water for 3-5 minutes.
drain beans and add 1 tbs of butter to pain with a SMIDGE of salt and pepper to taste (lots of pepper for me)
add 1/2 tsp of chopped garlic stirring ingredients together.
add cooked rice to the beans (equal to amount of beans)
pain should NOT be buttery so the beans and rice slightly fry on medium heat.
beans should be crunchy and juicy to the bite.
turn of heat, plate and ENJOY!

Stay oh so Chic!
