Since the diagnosis of my diabetes, I have been trying my best to follow my diet plan and eat as healthy as possible. I’ve been doing a pretty good job and I’ve been coming up with all types of creations! I’ve even been doing a better job while grocery shopping. I don’t go to the market when hungry and I only grab veggies, fruits and protein. It’s a great feeling to eat and be satisfied, not miserably stuffed. And it’s so fun to try new things.
Last night, I made a chicken and broccoli pasta. Nothing fancy, but definitely a healthier spin on something I could have eaten that was fully loaded with carbs and starches!
I shopped at Vallarta (my new favorite place). I grabbed some marinated chicken, broccoli, low fat rigatoni noodles and Ragu fettuccine cream sauce. (Not sure why I have the light ranch in the picture. I didn’t use it in this meal!)
Not the best presentation this time, I usually wrap it up a teeeny bit better than this. But, here we have pre-marinated chicken breast. It’s also garnished with green onions and regular onions. I cooked the chicken on 360 degrees for 25 minutes. Juicy was the result!
Once everything was done, I cut up all the ingredients and sprinkled it with a little black pepper for flavor. Paired with a glass of wine, this was quite a delicious meal, if I do say so myself! Kudos to me and a big pat on the back!
I'm a lover of all things; sunsets, puppies, makeup, fashion, travel, friends and family. I love sharing new ideas and the crazy things that happen in my life. More importantly, I love where I’ve been; beautiful Southern California, sunny Sin City and now back to my hometown of Waldorf, MD! I’m sure my exploration days are far from over! So.....come along for the ride....!
