Farm fresh bandi chicken eggs! #morning #nutrition #eggs #chicken #family (Taken with instagram)
Supper last night. Wheat flour and bread crumb crusted and baked chicken wings, with sesame ginger quinoa. Had two tablespoons of light ranch dressing for dipping - delish! Finished up leftover veggies.
First time having quinoa and it was really good! Hubby didn’t mind it either.
I have been madly craving this sandwich from a deli around here called Isaac’s (it’s called the Magpie in case you’re from Central PA and heard of it). It’s my favorite meal and has this amazing ranch pesto. It’s a flatbread sandwich with chicken, bacon, cheese, pesto, and spinach. I’m pretty sure the whole thing is about 1,000 calories because of it’s size, the bacon and the pesto/sauce.
So, I attempted the pesto myself as a clean version, although there is definitely a good bit of (heathly) fat in it! A lot of the oil you can see in this pic dripped out as I ate it which is also good.. haha
Anyway the pesto was spinach, a few onions, two garlic cloves, a tiny splash of fat free ranch dressing, less than a teaspoon of canola mayo, parsley, basil, olive oil, teaspoon of crumbled feta, and teaspoon of parmesan. Ground up in my mini food processor, done!
Re-heated some pre-cooked chicken breast and cut up some tomatoes and melted it all in a wheat tortilla. I also added a slice of fat free cheese which was pretty unnecessary but I really wanted the taste and this is still better than the real version. I calculated about 470 calories for the whole thing, which is still a better alternative and I could have gone less on the sauce. I’m so satisfied and stoked that it tasted so close!
