52 Mondays came to me in a fit of New years resolution fury. It seems I am always starting my "diet" or exercise plan on "Monday"! Well lots of "Mondays" have come and gone and my butt and thighs are still as thick as a Chick-filet shake (you know what I'm talking about!!) That is when I thought OK there are 52 Mondays in year...52 is a doable number of making small changing in my life that will hopefully change to number on the scale in a downward fashion. Come join us on the journey of 52 Mondays to getting our butt, thighs and almost everything else that shake and moves a little smaller. If want to be a contributor (and you know you do) just leave a comment and I will add you to the list of contributors! This is a blog were we can share our successes and failures on the hard journey of weight loss and just plain physical wellness.

Calling all cooks:

Alright ladies....and men, I am calling out for recipes....healthy recipes. They can be for dinners, snacks, desserts and anything in between. I am in a food funk and need some new ideas. I will start:

Shepards Pie
1 lb. 97% lean Hamburger (cooked)
1 can of green beans (french style)
1 can of carrots (sliced)
1 cup frozen corn (Costco's is the best)
2 pkgs of beef gravy (powdered kind) (make as directed)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 pkgs of prepared flavored powdered mashed potatoes (Idahoan Butter and Herb is my favorite)

Layer in pan a greased 9X13 pan as listed. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until bubbly. This doesn't seem like it should be so low in calories or points but it is. I typed it into WW recipe calculator and it was 6pts for one of 8 servings in a 9X13 pan. I like this recipe because it is easy to throw together, tastes like good comfort food, and the whole family will eat it. (I often will half the recipe for my family though it reheats well for left overs!)

Now your turn!!!!


Remember to label your post with "recipe"

  1. I am so happy that it is low on cal/points. This is a favorite at my house because it is simple and because I can hide vegetables and make Wyatt eat them. haha! Hurray!
