Weigh In - Week 1
Wow, what a week this has been. I am proud of myself for sticking with my new eating plan and just not throwing in the towel. I did stumble once (mother's day dinner) but the rest of the week I was good and stayed on plan.

I lost 2 pounds this week. I was really hoping to lose at least 3 but I am happy with 2.

I thought I would share my all time favorite veggie recipe from Weight Watchers. Only 1 point (68 calories) per serving. Here it is....yummy!

Oriental Green Beans

1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
3 Tbl. soy sauce
1 Tbl. oriental sesame oil
1 tsp. granulated sugar
6 garlic cloves, minced

1. In a large pot of rapidly boiling water, cook green beans until just tender, 4-5 minutes.

2. While beans are cooking, in small bowl combine soy sauce, oil, and sugar; set aside.

3. Drain beans; set aside.

4. Spray wok or 10" skillet with nonstick cooking spray; place over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring constantly, until softened, 20-30 seconds. Add green beans; cook, stirring and turning constantly, until well coated, about 2 minutes.

5. Add soy sauce mixture; continue to stir and turn until most of the liquid is absorbed, 1-2 minutes.

Nutrition Information: 68 calories, 2.4g fat, 4g fiber (makes 6 servings).

I took this to Easter dinner a few years ago and it has become a family favorite. Some times I double the recipe and save the leftover for snacks when I need a little something.

Hope you Enjoy!

I made these beans for dinner tonight. They WERE yummy. I substituted 1 T olive oil + sesame seeds because our sesame oil was rancid.
