Click on the recipes below for smart points. The tacos and points for salmon will vary depending on what kind of tortilla shell you buy and how many potatoes you use. I always weigh my potatoes with a digital scale to find the points for them.
Hello everyone and welcome back to another dinner plan. People seem to be responding to these very well and really like them, so I think I will continue them onto next month. It is the final and last week of January already. Does anyone else think that this month seemed to last forever? I did. We are entering a cold snap here this week and all I want is some comfort food. I'm down 2 pounds this month. I know that's not much but it's something! Last year in January I followed the plan and lost a little over 10 pounds but then slowly after I gained it all back again. This year, I will try and not quit!
The only new post this week is going to be a recipe for Monterey Chicken. It's this chicken dish where you bake the chicken in the oven and then after it is done cooking you top it with BBQ sauce, cheese, bacon, and green onions. I'm going to try cooking that in my air fryer. Come back on Wednesday to see that post but I listed what you will need for it below.
One thing I always like to have on hand is frozen salmon fillets for a quick healthy meal. Do any of you shop at Sam's Club? I will buy the bag of frozen salmon there. I'll take the salmon out of the freezer 2 hours before cooking and let it sit in some water to defrost. They do not need long to defrost! I take out my air fryer and cook the potatoes and salmon at 350 for 12 minutes and serve it with some spinach. Such an quick and healthy meal to throw together. Just have to count points for the potatoes.
