Garlic and Herb Squash Stir Fry

Thursday, August 25, 2011

I am down another pound today. Yay! The plan really does work as long as you stick with it! Also, I am happy to report that I lost all the weight I gained during my 3 1/2 week vacation in Vegas. Now I have to lose the 10 lbs I gained before Vegas. I will get there soon enough! One packet at a time! I am feeling better since re-starting Medifast a week ago and my headaches have also gotten better so good news for me! I am just happy I am starting to have some normalcy in my life since hubby got back from deployment. Everything is starting to fall into place and I am getting settled here in Colorado. Enough about me, I wanted to share what I had for lunch today as my lean and green. This is another one of those easy and versatile dishes that I love because it uses only a few ingredients.We all love those easy recipes that still taste good, right? I used zucchini and cabbage because I didn't have any yellow squash and it was mighty tasty! Nothing like buttered veggies with garlic and herb seasoning. Yum! Very good for a quick meal. Hubby even liked it except I made his with chicken since he is allergic to shrimp. Two thumbs up from the hubs! Enjoy!
