Hot 100 Update 9

All but one? Not bad this week!

30 minutes 3 times a week with God. Did three times.  Plus, we went to two worship services.

No eating after 8 pm. Success again.

Develop post 1 recipe a week. Cutting this one close…see below!

Get 1 item done on the “Honey-Do” list a week. I spent an evening this week cleaning up the garage–definitely something off the to-do lost.

No candy. Success, though I did have some treats this week.

Week 85 Weigh-In
Weight: 227.8
Weekly weight gain: 3.2
Total loss: 140.6

Yup, another gain.  Getting tired of this.  But really, today’s the day after Thanksgiving–and stuffing and casseroles do have a substantial amount of sodium.  We’re already gone through the little amount of leftovers we brought home, so tomorrow on should be back to normal.  Nice!

Saag Garbanzo
makes 12 servings

2 Cans Low-Sodium Garbanzo Beans
2 Packages Fresh Spinach
2 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp Curry Powder
10oz Plain Greek Yogurt
2 tbsp Tahini Paste
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup water

Heat Oil in skillet.  Add rinsed and drained garbanzo beans and curry powder; cook until heated through.  Stir in tahini and greek yogurt.  Add 2 bags of fresh spinach that have been shredded in a food processor.  Stir in lemon juice and water.  And then heat through.

Serve on rice.

  1. So what did the dish taste like? That may be hard to answer. It looks like something I might enjoy.

    Good job on the great week. And yeah, weighing in the day after a celebration/feast is not always the best idea if we want to post a loss. 🙂

      Oh, yeah, I guess I could explain the dish a little, huh? Well, when we go out to Indian food, one of my favorite dishes is saag paneer, which is a spinach and cheese dish. This is my approximation. Without the cheese. 🙂

    Why can’t peas, kidney beans and those kind of things not taste so nasty. Lima beans, garbanzo beans, and all those things crispy on the outside smushie on the inside. I know they are good for me, but if I can’t eat them without hurling what can I do?
    Keep posting recipes though because I’m looking for new ones that are good for me and my family will eat.
    Thanks Beej. Take care and have a blessed Sunday!
