Yay! I am finally back to the weight I was before leaving out of town for one week! I gained 8 lbs during that trip and it took a little over a week to lose all 8 of them! Ugh! But, I am happy now so I wanted to share my news with you guys! Now it is time to lose even more weight. Only 17 lbs away from goal!

I love this Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage from Jennie-O, but you should only eat this in moderation because of the sodium content. You should have less than 2300 mg of sodium a day and the two sausages itself provide 1300 mg of sodium. It is still within the plan guidelines though, but make sure you drink lots of water! You are allowed 6 oz of these sausages as a serving size. Yum! I sometimes eat this with spaghetti squash with a little bit of marinara sauce, but this time I made steamed cabbage. The recipe is below. These would be great with the pizza bread. Kind of like a hot dog! I can't wait to try that!

This is the sausage sliced up with steamed cabbage. Yummy!
Delicious sausage! They are bursting with Italian flavor!

You can cook these babies on the stove top, grill or broil them. I chose to broil them in the oven for 14 to 16 minutes. Turned out nice and juicy. Make sure your meat thermometer reaches 165 degrees.

I served these sausages with this yummy cabbage recipe!

Steamed Cabbage

1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth (1 1/2 Condiments)
1 medium head cabbage, cored and coarsely chopped ~ about 4 1/2 cups (9 Greens)
1/4 tsp Salt (1 Condiment)
1/4 tsp Pepper (1/2 Condiment)
1/2 tsp onion powder (1 Condiment)
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder (1 Condiment)

Bring chicken broth to a boil in a medium sized pot. Reduce heat to low and add the cabbage. Cover and cook over low heat to steam the cabbage for about 45 minutes, stirring frequently, or until cabbage is tender and sweet. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

3 Servings with 3 Greens and 1.6 Condiments per Serving
