Weight Watchers Wednesday Week #7…
Weight gain this week: 1.6 lbs
Ok, I know I suck! I could come up with a milliion excuses why I’m up this week but, I won’t bore you! I didn’t get a chance to weigh in last week so this is what happens!
I find that I need to be literally 100% on top of it, if I’m not I suffer. I’m learning things every single day. At today’s meeting we talked about “Managing your thoughts”, it was a great topic.
Are you happy? If you are not why? You need to surround yourself around people that make you happy. Being & staying positive, getting back on that “horse” so that you can have a great week this week…yada, yada! So I will get back up on my trusty steed & perseverve. Now on to the recipe.
Ham & Pineapple Stir Fry with Cashews (or without!)
1 Maple Leaf Medallion Naturally Low-Fat Smoked Ham (trimmed & cut into 3/4″ cubes)
1 red onion, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 orange pepper, sliced
1 398 ml can pineapple chunks drained
1 350 ml jar sweet & sour sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 cup whole cashews
2 tbsp vegetable oil
Instructions: In a large frying pan – stir fry vegetables & ham on high heat in small batches. Keep batches in a colander until finished. In large pot, heat sweet & sour sauce with sesame oil. Bring to a boil, then turn heat to medium, add pineapple & heat through. Return ham & vegetables to frying pan & pour sauce over top. Stir & cook until hot. Serve on a bed of basmati rice & garnish with cashews (if you choose).
I did not use any oil at all (sesame or vegetable). I used Canadian Back Bacon (2 slices for 1 point) & you can omit the cashews. I served over steamed rice. I also just cooked everything in 1 skillet, none of this cooking in batches!
