What’s for dinner?

I promised – since there were several requests – to post more specific ideas for meals.
So, I thought I’d show you tonight’s meal!

So what have we here?

BTW – since I am trying to get back on track, I am weighing everything rigorously using my kitchen scale.

The meat is Perdue boneless turkey breast.  8 ounces = 220 cals.  Marc cooked it on the stove top and seasoned with McCormick Molasses Bacon spice.
Then we have 8 ounces of sweet potato.  I microwaved it for 5 minutes and then put a little cinnamon, sea salt, and pepper on it, wrapped tight in aluminum foil and cooked in the oven at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.  200 calories.
A glass of skim milk – 100 calories.


And finally, 20 ounces of zucchini from our garden.  Cut in half, seasoned with McCormick barbeque spice, and cooked in the oven for 45 minutes at 400 degrees.  80 calories.



  1. This looks so good! Was it filling?
    Thanks for posting.

    1. Absolutely! Complex carbs - sweet potato - very! Also, over a pound of zucchini for 80 cals??!!

  2. I have been following your blog for over a year and am also struggling right now with getting to the basics to take off a few pounds I've gained over the year after a 155 lb weight loss in 2012. Maintenance is a battle...are the extra pounds gone yet? Patience.... Booo
