Wow! I can hardly believe it’s been 30 weeks since I decided to take the plunge and join Weight Watchers to try to lose some weight and get back to being healthy again! (Well, healthier, anyway!) I wasn’t sure where I would be at this point in my journey, or even if I would be able to stick with it this long, but I’m happy to say, I’m almost halfway to my goal, and still going strong! This week I lost 2.3 pounds for a total of 64.6 pounds! I am so close to the halfway point of 68 pounds!
As usual I was on the hunt this week for a new recipe to try, and I found one for Roasted Honey Sesame Brussels Sprouts on Ask Anna shared by Andrea from Cooking with a Wallflower. For a change I didn’t make any substitutions in this recipe, but I did halve it, since I was cooking for one.
I love Brussels sprouts, and I haven’t had them in quite a while, so I was super excited to try this recipe out. So excited that, even though the only Brussels sprouts I could find were tiny and pathetic looking, I still bought them and brought them home!
I served them with whole grain brown rice cooked in broth, and chicken breast coated in 1 tbsp of three cheese dressing, and 15 g of Panko seasoned bread crumbs, baked in the oven. It was a delicious dinner, and I am looking forward to roasting some other vegetables in the Honey Sesame sauce, I think it would be good on quite a few things!
Do you like Brussels sprouts? Do you have a favourite recipe featuring Brussels sprouts that you would like to recommend to me? I’m always looking for new recipes to try to keep me excited about eating healthy!
