A light summer Alfredo!

1Β lb 99% lean chicken breast
1 leek diced
1 pint light cream
1/2 stick butter
Red pepper flakes
Pepper
Salt
2 cloves garlic
1 bag whole grain egg noodles
Pea shoots

1- dice the garlic and brown it in a pan with oil, then add the chicken which should be cut into bite size pieces

2- put the pint of light cream in a sauce pan with the leeks. Leave on low for 20-30 mins, stirring occasionally. Add red pepper flakes and pepper. I added 1/2 stick butter in this to thicken it. I thought it needed it since I used thin light cream instead of thick heavy cream.

3- cook the egg noodles

4- stir noodles and chicken and slowly pour in the creamed leeks

5- top with pea sprouts for a nice added flavor to compliment the leeks and an extra crunch (my pea sprouts went bad and I didn’t notice until the end so I substituted broccoli. Not my first choice, but if you blanch it then it still has that crunch.)

This works out to be about 1 point plus per ounce! A 6 oz portion is 7 points plus!

My Graze box came in! This is my first time getting the nibble box (I usually get the calorie counter box) and I was NOT disappointed!!!

I got Hot Cross Yum (orange raisins, sponge pieces & cinnamon honey almonds), Summer Berry Flapjack (rustic rolled oat flapjack with berry infused cranberries), Little Figgy Went to the Market (apple, cranberries, and diced figs dusted with rice flour), and Natures Immunity Nuts (Brazil, cashew, and pistachio).

Okay. I’ve been tagged by delightfulrandomness to post 5 things that make me happy!

1/2: My beautiful babies- Orson Welles and Apa! I love them more than anyone else.

3: Kayaking during the summer! I love bringing my lunch and enjoying nature for the whole day.

4: Seeing how far I’ve come- I was over 300lbs in that picture and now I’m 163!

5: Traveling and taking trips with senditwithastamp. This picture was from the Nintendo Store in NYC but I think my favorite trip we took so far was to either Montreal or Washington DC, I can’t even wait until London/Paris next fall…. 😘.

So I’m tagging: senditwithastamp and fasterphil!

I got a second opinion and I’m beyond happy! This doctor is willing to take me on and fight to get partial coverage from the insurance! This is my quote for arm lift, “fat apron” removal, and butt lift- $8,980! This is amazing considering the other doctor said it would be $13,000 and nothing covered by insurance for ONLY the lower body lift, not the butt  or arms. 

So yea. I’m dying to get this done but getting the insurance to help is going to take some doing, so it may be months before I can even think about booking the procedures.
