New Years Resolution...Are you kidding???

So for the last two weeks I've been hitting the gym, running the treadmill and lifting weights. I'm finally starting to feel like it's paying off...Woo Hoo! I haven't necessarily lost weight but I'm feeling better each time I go, so it's just a matter of time. I've also been watching my food intake. I'm not doing the "Body For Life" Challenge but I'm trying to follow the plan as close as possible. Well today I made my first recipe from the Eating For Life Book and was it ever so fabulous! Those are big words from me, lol. I'm one of the pickiest, plane jane eaters on the planet. My nickname is Ms. Vanilla! So I thought I'd share, you really should try 287.

By the way, I substituted canned chicken for the tuna...(I don't eat fish). Can you believe this is one portion. I was stuffed!

1 can (6 oz.) Chicken or Tuna
1/4 C frozen peas (thawed)
1 slice of onion, chopped (I used red)
1 red pepper, diced (I used orange)
2 portions rotini (about 4 oz. or 1/2 Cup uncooked)(one portion is 2 oz. or 1/4 Cup)
1/4 C low-fat Zesty Italian Dressing

Cook noodles 9 min. mix everything together, chill if you like it cold.
Servings: 2
