My Pinterest Dinner

One of the things I'm supposed to do is watch my carb intake and try to spread it out over the entire day (keep in mind, when I say "watch," I do mean reasonably-I still get 45% of my calories from carbs). I'm also trying to eat more veggies and make half my plate veggies. Now, I'm not a huge veggie fan and I don't know enough about most to make something yummy. Which is why we have Pinterest!

I searched for different recipes to match what I wanted and I found lots of good ones. I decided on roasted veggies, non-breaded chicken cordon blue, and corn and black bean quinoa. You can find all three on my So Yummy board. I really liked all three, but the quinoa was by far my favorite. I will say that filling half my plate with the veggies was easy though (beware of molten tomatoes!), but I shouldn't have used dried rosemary :)

My portion sizes were just right and it was the perfect amount of food. I'm not usually a fan of squash or asparagus, but it was yummy! And I discovered that fresh cilantro smells so good.

Now, I need to go for my run.
