Newlywed Nourishes New Nest with Cooking Light Diet

November 21, 2015 | By | Comments (8)

I joined the Cooking Light Diet for two reasons.

As a newlywed, I dread deciding what’s for dinner every night. It used to be I was only worried about myself and could eat a bowl of cereal if I wanted to. Now I have another person to consider most nights and wanted an easy way to plan meals that are healthy.

Being post-wedding, I needed a way to kick myself back in gear. Like a lot of brides before their big day I went into super fitness mode – and then I let it go afterwards because I didn’t have the same motivation. However, when my favorite jeans zipper popped I knew it was time to make a change!

The difficult part for me is that I always want to eat a lower-calorie, healthy meal, but my husband is one of those lucky few who can eat just about anything and still stay in great shape! So far the Cooking Light Diet has been a great balance for us. I typically eat the recommended serving while he eats double. We started off with the Cider Chicken and Pecan Brown Rice (left) and, we ate it up—literally! Josh loved the pecans mixed in and the chicken was relatively easy to make (cooking time was longer than recommended, most likely because I bought a thicker chicken breast). We also made a large batch of the Chicken Noodle Soup and had leftovers for a number of days.

We also had the Loaded Baked Potato Soup, Classic Lasagna, and Grape, Tomato, Olive and Spinach Pasta. All were huge hits with the hubby and me!
