Fearless Friday - Food

Hi Everyone! Oh my gosh it's been so long since I've written a blog post (how sad is that?). I officially have a new blog now http://www.christiemeresseblog.com/, I will still be posting here though and using this as more of a personal blog (more pictures of Tyler...Yay!).

This week's Fearless Friday post is about "Food". I didn't really know where to go with this post or how to approach it since it really is such a broad topic. For those of you who don't know, I have been on the Weight Watchers points plus program for about 5 months now. I haven't lost as many pounds as I was hoping to, but I also haven't been really strick with my plan for the past month. So far I've lost 18lbs, which is still really really huge for me!! I have about 10lbs to go before I hit my goal weight so I have a lot more work to do.

In light of my weightloss goals, my post about food today will be on one of the recipes from the Body-for-Life cookbook that we make at the house and really enjoy:

Lettuce Wraps

4 shiitake mushrooms
7 stalks napa cabbage
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 onion
2 Tbsp hoisin sauce
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp five-spice powder
12 large leaves iceberg lettuce

Cook turkey according to package directions. In separate pan, cook cabbage and onion about 2 minutes. Stir in hoisin sauce, soy sauce and five-spice powder. Add cabbage leaves, mushrooms and cook about 1 minute. Add cooked turkey and combine well. Separate out mixture into the lettuce leaves. Serve with soy beans (edamame).
