Extreme Makeover: Me Edition healthy recipe

29 Apr

Hello my friends. It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for Extreme Makeover: Me Edition. Amber is hosting this great group of girls who are supporting each other as we strive to lose weight/get healthier.

This is my philosophy this week: It is what it is. I have decided to be happy with me. This body I have is amazing. It does so much. It takes care of my kids, loves my husband, hugs my friends, blogs, cleans and allows me to be creative. I am going to be happy with myself and try to be healthier.

This week: drink more water, continue walking, eating more fruits and veggies.


This week’s question:

Share with us a healthy recipe.

{One that you’ve adapted, found, made up. Anything. Try to give any nutritional info if possible}

Asian Noodle Soup With Chicken and Snow Peas

This is a recipe that I made Monday night. It is from Martha’s Everyday Food magazine. I just love those magazines – could they be any cuter??


Here are the nutrition facts for the dish: 355 calories, 1.8 grams of fat, 27.5 grams of protein, 55.3 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fiber. {It does call for something called lemongrass. I looked all over and even in spices and couldn’t find it. I substituted lemon seasoning for it and it was great!}

It was a huge hit!!! Everyone loved it. I loved it because it was healthy and so yummy. I had the leftovers for lunch today!!


Go on over to join the EM:ME group. What a wonderful group of supportive friends!
