It’s amazing to me how many people cut their favourite foods out of their diet when they are trying to lose a few pounds. Take KFC chicken for example. My husband and I love it! I have no intention of giving it up but neither do I want to gain weight. What to do?
The picture you see above is my dinner from last night. A 15 pc bucket will make 5 dinners for my husband and myself. Fortunately, I like the white meat and my hubby is a fan of the dark. Works out great.
On my plate you can see 1 KFC chicken breast at 360 calories as per their website, 1 1/2 cups of salad (50 cal) and 1 cup spaghetti squash “spaghetti” (137 cal) for a grand total of approx 547 calories.
So dinner takes about 15 minutes to prepare. Fast food meal and fits into a 1500 calorie a day diet when you’re trying to lose a little.
Not too shabby, huh. The nice thing about this is you can cook the spaghetti squash ahead of time and freeze it into meal time portions. Thaw and heat with butter and spices or with a mixture of tomato, tomato sauce, italian seasoning, garlic and a spoonful of onion soup mix. Too simple. Quick, delicious and nutritious.
