First Week of Healthy Eating

Yummy, Chicken and Dumplings! I am very excited this week to get back on track and start my Weight Watchers menu's again. The last four months have been very difficult, and I am so ready to get my eating habits and exercise under control again. I am finally ready to do it. This is my menu for this week and, yes it is all on the Weight Watchers plan

Sunday: Chicken and Dumplings

Monday: Pot Roast, with Potatoes and Carrots

Tuesday: Grilled Pork Chops

Wednesday: White Chicken Lazagna (didn't make it to the table last week)

Thursday: Tostadoes

Friday: Hamburgers on the grill w/ Grilled Vegetables.

Saturday we will eat out

Chicken and Dumplings recipe:

2 celery ribs, chopped
8 cups chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
12 ounces cubed cooked chicken
1-2/3 cups reduced-fat biscuit/baking mix
2/3 cup fat-free milk

Directions: In a large Dutch Oven add celery. Stir in the broth, salt and pepper, bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered. Add the chicken. For dumplings, combine biscuit mix and milk. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto simmering broth. Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift cover while simmering). Yield: 6 servings
