Healthy Food February Update

Things have been progressing slowly but surely in our latest One Small Change. Green tea, natural sugars, decaffeinated coffee, and cooking with brown rice have made their way into the mix. So far we are enjoying the flavor and more complex texture of brown rice. However, I am not enjoying the longer cook time. I was thinking about making a larger quantity over the weekend to then reheat in weeknight portions. Hmmm....
Tonight we had a modified version of Real Simple magazine's "Golden Chicken with Tomatoes and Olives." Essentially, it's chicken sauteed with onions, pimento-stuffed green olives, grape tomatoes, and garlic. The recipe called for white wine to deglaze the pan; I substituted lemon juice and served over brown rice instead of white: 
It was tasty, though I am not a fan of the resulting dish pile (not pictured ;). 
A tiny roadblock to Healthy Food February? Two little boxes delivered by a neighborhood Girl Scout containing none other than Thin Mints and Tag-A-Longs. My favorites. Ugh! Yum!


  1. Oh, the Girl Scout cookies....Where are the little girls when you need them????

  2. I am excited to hear about your update! Man, those girl scout cookies always throw me for a loop. We got two boxes as well this week and devoured the first box in 1 day! You have to splurge some times, is what i like to say!
    Thanks for the update!
