The Crazy Suburban Mom: Aren't you worth it?

Aren't you worth it?

I had a great week on Nutrisystem.  Since I was off-plan for so long because of my jaw problem I've not gotten on the scale yet but I feel better, less bloated, and more energetic in general which means things are going well again.  When I don't eat well, I don't sleep well and the fact that I have more energy is the best sign things are going well!

 In my continuing effort to show what I'm eating I have a few more meals to show you.  The first one is Slow Roasted Turkey Medallions described as:  Slow-roasted, tender turkey with julienne carrots, cauliflower and broccoli florets and the bright accent of sun-dried tomatoes, all in a savory turkey gravy. This is simple, satisfying comfort food with a sophisticated twist.

It's one of my favorites; gravy does it for me.  I love the stuff.  I had it with a big salad composed of cucumbers, onion, tomato, and hearts of palm.  (More info about them at the end)

If you don't know about hearts of palm you should make it your business to try them.  They taste a little like artichoke hearts and have about 40 calories (a cup!) with a smooth, luxurious texture that screams, NOM!  It you've never tried them an easy way is a salad of sliced oranges, sliced hearts of palm, thinly sliced red onion and a vinaigrette.  It's company-good!

My second dinner picture is of the Chef's Table Whole Wheat Ricotta Crepes and it is hands down my favorite meal.  I'd eat this everyday.  It's described as:  Cheese-filled crepes, brought to you by culinary connoisseur Chef Tony Mantuano, sure to become your new favorite! Served in a fire–roasted tomato sauce with a basil-infused olive oil and topped with mozzarella cheese, these light and delicious crepes are like something you'd find in a high–end Italian restaurant. But surprise—it's from  Nutrisystem , and perfect for your weight loss plan.

I love these to bits and don't consider myself finished until every bit of sauce is gone.  Heaven.  I had it with a salad of cucumber, fresh green beans and hearts of palm.

The last dinner picture is a Chef's Table Dinner, Arroz Con Pollo: Here's a simple chicken and rice dish that's anything but simple in taste. Brought to you by internationally renowned Chef Carmen González, this entrée features the classic taste of chicken and rice with a sophisticated twist. Cilantro and tomato annatto rice mix with spring peas and pimento peppers to bring you this Spanish dish that delivers a flavor fiesta in every bite.

I really like this one, call me a carb addict but I love the rice and the chicken is nice and tender! Ihad it on a bed of steamed green beans and a big salad.  Mixed greens, carrots, cucumber and you guessed it ...  Hearts of Palm.

If I've peaked your interest in Hearts of palm by now they are a little on the the expensive side if you compare them to something like canned peas or Ramen noodles.  They come canned and jarred (my preferred container) and well worth the money.  

Making grocery decisions shouldn't always about the now, you should consider the later.  

Yes, you could buy a cartful of ramen noodles or jelly beans instead of healthy food but think about what you will save later in future health issues; not to mention the cost of your ever-expanding um, pants and just how nice it is to feel better about your self; which is pretty much.... Priceless.

That was the reasoning that got me started on  Nutrisystem.  While I'm now a Nutrisystem Blogger I started as a customer (and was one for months) before blogging for them.  

There is a great offer going on now and aren't you worth it?

From Epicurious: The edible inner portion of the stem of the cabbage palm tree, which grows in many tropical climates and is Florida's official state tree. Hearts of palm are slender, ivory-colored, delicately flavored and expensive. They resemble white asparagus, sans tips. Their texture is firm and smooth and the flavor is reminiscent of an artichoke. Each stalk is about 4 inches long and can range in diameter from pencil-thin to 1 to 1 1/2 inches. The hearts of palm we get in the United States are either from Florida or imported from Brazil. They're available fresh only in Florida and in other countries where they're grown. Canned hearts of palm are packed in water, and can be found in gourmet markets and many large supermarkets. Once opened, they should be transferred to a nonmetal container with an airtight cover. They can be refrigerated in their own liquid for up to a week. Hearts of palm can be used in salads and in main dishes, or deep-fried.

Do you have the Nutrisystem food delivered or is their a "center" or store near you? Years ago, I used to work as a receptionist for NutriSystem, but I didn't think they had offices anymore.
