So today I start my new lifestyle change which actually has a name: WeightWatchers.
My mistake today was ordering a Chik-fil-a sandwich and large Dr Pepper and cookies from McDonalds. I admit, it was a weak moment but I hadn’t eaten all day (which isn’t a good idea, btw) and I had just finished grocery shopping.
My love though, is cooking. I was going to make turkey chili but after realizing that the turkey had gone bad, I decided to make my new favorite, chicken and rice crockpot soup.
Shown above, are the ingredients for the soup except the chicken (I usually use about a pound – I like my chicken). I just throw them all in the crockpot and let it cook.
2 cans of diced tomatoes (I used rosemary and oregano)
3.5 cups of chicken broth
1 cup of wild rice (the only one I could find is a mix but it’s good)
1 cup of brown rice
Approx 1lb of frozen chicken
Add all ingredients and cook on high for as long as needed. At about two hrs, scoop out the chicken and either dice/cut/shred and then put it in.
Cooking and bubbling up a storm
All done and measured out – doesn’t that look yummy??
All 7 servings in the fridge for the next week – yay!!
