Chili Dogs the Healthy Way
It was so nice getting off at 4pm and being able to go to a free yoga class that was hosted by my dear friend Rachel. She is getting her yoga training certificate and is practicing on us bootcamp ladies! It was so nice, and I got a great stretch in.
Today on my lunch break I went to TJ’s for some groceries for the next two weeks.
I haven’t done a “real” shopping trip in a while. I was excited to fill up the fridge with some fruit and veggies!
This week’s cart:
- TJ’s Natural PB
- Sliced Almonds
- Black Beans
- Light Coconut Milk
- Diced Tomatoes
- 2 potatoes
- mini whole ww pita’s
- herb salad mix
- bean soup mix
- baby spinach
- organic mac and cheese
- garlic mashed potatoes
- TJ’s Greek yogurt
- whole wheat hot dog buns
- chicken sausages
- sweet potato cutlets
- sliced organic apples
- goat cheese
- sliced carrots
Some highlights of the trip, avocado halves I have never seen these before!
Meatless corn dogs, hoping that Hubby doesn't notice:)
And the inspiration for tonight's dinner, Spinach Fontina & Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausages.
I had this can of Veggie Chili I have been wanting to save for the perfect evening!
I was excited to fire up the grill, and have so much light outside!
The whole wheat honey wheat TJ’s hot dogs buns were delicious and so were these chicken sausages!! I topped my dog with some veggie chili and a little light cheddar cheese.
I made some sweet potato fries to go along with it. I mixed the potatoes with a little EVOO, pepper and a little Rondevouex seasoning and baked for 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
I grilled up some asparagus for some greenery as well.
This dinner was satisfying and way better then FAST FOOD, a total of 400 calories and 7 grams of FAT!!! Whoever said you can’t chili dogs and be healthy??
I am currently catching up on blogs and responding to some emails I have been meaning to get to today! I am also enjoying two Girl Scout Peppermint Patties and watching the The Break-up.
I am about to hit the hay with my new reading material for the month! Look what came in the mail today!! Can't wait to did into this!
