Who doesn’t love a giveaway?
I posted earlier this morning that I hit 98.5 pounds lost, despite being worried about my new focus on lower calories instead of low-carb. Part of the reason I was worried was because I cooked and ate this over the weekend:
I made nachos for the Steelers game (hubs is a die hard fan). He is almost as big of a fan of nachos as he is his Steelers. When we went to Key West on our cruise, he didn’t order Key Lime pie from the restaurant we went to – he ordered nachos. The boy must try nachos everywhere we go.
So I made these nachos from Rocco DiSpirito’s cookbook, “Now Eat This!” (aff. link) which has 150 recipes of old favorite comfort foods, but with less than 350 calories per serving.
Hubs had zero idea that these nachos were made with ground turkey instead of ground beef and that he ate greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I told him when he was halfway through scarfing his plate and he was shocked. Seriously, they were that good. Good wife points for me!
Then last night, I really wanted some comfort food, so I chose the macaroni and cheese recipe from the “Now Eat This” cookbook, and made it with some skepticism. It also used greek yogurt, lowfat cheese and panko bread crumbs? Confused, but undeterred, I made it and it turned out like this:
It was seriously good. And might I add: I am the laziest cook on the planet. LAZY. But these dishes were not only tasty, but they were EASY, and I didn’t have any problems finding the ingredients for them. And the cookbook has pretty pictures (seriously, it makes a difference.)
Anyway, I want to share the deliciousness with you, so I’m giving away two (2) SIGNED copies of Now Eat This! (uh, signed by Rocco, not by me)
