Italian sausage tortellini skillet

I love skillet meals because they are all in one pan which means less mess!! I used a 7oz box of tortellini instead of the giant thing of fresh tortellini… It was plenty! Using a box also saves about $5! I ended up adding a cup of water half way through cooking the tortellini because it takes about twice the cook time. Still made the meal in about 35 minutes! Mixed in the mozz and Parm cheeses and added another handful of mozz to the top before the oven! 

Recipe here: http://www.yellowblissroad.com/italian-sausage-tortellini-skillet/

Paired nicely with a salad (pictured)
Fed 2 of us, had plenty of left overs. I would say this feeds 4!

Pulled pork tacos with sweet chili slaw and cilantro lime sour cream

Didn’t use the avocado in the sour cream, just upped the amount of sour cream to taste. This mixture of flavors was amazing!! I have tons of pulled pork left too :)  Also subbed country style (boneless) ribs and didn’t brown them first, 6hrs on low in the crockpot- tender as shit :) Used Franks red hot: Sweet Chili for the slaw!!

Ranch chicken and veggies

Foil dinners are my favorite because they are so easy and can be done over a fire, on the grill, or in the oven! This one is VERY low fat and extremely delicious and not to mention beginner level of expertise! 

Recipe here: http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/grilled-parmesan-ranch-chicken-packs/e4433230-4f52-4a41-be03-3f2e271ad423

Baked 45 min at 450 (suggested in comments) I imagine it’s even better grilled! Ranch chicken and veggies

Lost 5 lbs this month! Very excited :)

Week after next my one night of vball per week becomes 3 nights. So with workouts already set for the other days my only day of “rest” is Friday. Which is the day I work both jobs, so I’m on my feet 7:30AM-1:30AM. Maybe I’ll lose 10 next month!?

A full meal only 535 calories!

I cooked up a package of Jennie-O Sweet Italian turkey sausage on my grill pan on the stove. I REALLY WANNA GRILL OUT, c’mon summer!!!!!

The package came with 5, 2 with no bun was plenty for me.
I paired it with apple poppyseed coleslaw, recipe here:
http://damndelicious.net/2012/07/15/apple-and-poppy-seed-coleslaw-beattheheat/
Note: if you buy the pre-mixed coleslaw like I did, this recipe is for about half a bag (I just eyeballed it). I made it last week (only using 3/4 of an apple both times, but my apples were huge) this time I subbed low fat mayo. *The calories above are for 1/4 of the recipe using regular mayo.*

Steve ate his with mustard and diced onion on buns (adds about 100calories each.) While I dipped mine in Open Pit’s “Apple Whiskey BBQ sauce” SOOOO GOOD!! Fun to pair this with the apple coleslaw. I also made some homemade pickles, yummy :)

Saturdays

I have been going to the gym every Saturday for a month now. I tied one on pretty hard last night so, especially being dehydrated, I decided to take it easy today. I cut 20 minutes off my normal elliptical time and took it slow. When I started I used to do 30 min, and I’ve been slowing increasing my time, now I’m up to 50. Taking it easy I burned as many calories in 30 min as I used to when I went 30 minutes. Only difference, back then.. That was “going hard” for me. Basically what I’m saying is I’m proud of how much progress I’ve made, even if I’m not losing a ton of weight, I am getting stronger and better. Yey me!
