Like a lot of people, I’ve had some challenges with weight. I’d lose 10, then gain 20. And it added up. Most weight loss solutions haven’t worked for me. But since August I’ve been on HMR through the Palo Alto Medical Foundation and it’s worked! I won’t say how much I weigh or how much I lost because everyone’s happy number is different. And I don’t want comparisons. Let’s just say I’m much happier than I was before with my weight, and I’m much healthier. I’m even running now! I’m addicted and get cranky if I haven’t run in a few days. I even signed up for my first half marathon in October.
So even though I’m officially “off” the diet, I still go to meetings. Tonight is a potluck and below is what I came up with. BBQs are on my mind so I wanted to create something that I can eat without feeling guilty. I think it tastes pretty good, and it’s a hell of a lot healthier than a normal broccoli slaw with bacon. Since I haven’t blogged since before my daughter was born – she’s nearly 4 1/2 by the way – I thought that I’d put this up on my site so that I don’t forget where I put it.
Broccoli Slaw Turkey Bits Salad
½ lbs of ground turkey
Pam – Original Flavor
2 tbs of Walden Farms Creamy Bacon Salad Dressing
1 bag broccoli slaw
1 cup red grapes halved
¼ cup of Walden Farms Coleslaw Dressing
- 1. Spray pan with Pam
- 2. Cook ground turkey on medium heat. Make sure to break it up into small bits, so that they look like bacon bits.
- 3. Once cooked, place on paper towel on top of a plate to drain.
- 4. In a small bowl, coat the turkey with 2 tablespoons of Walden Farms Creamy Bacon Salad Dressing. Let cool a bit.
- 5. Combine broccoli slaw and 1 cup of halved grapes in a bowl (leave room for turkey).
- 6. Add ¼ cup of Walden Farms Coleslaw and gently combine. Be sure to coat everything. If you like more dressing on your coleslaw, add more – it’s zero calories. Just don’t let it swim in it.
- 7. Add turkey and gently combine.
- 8. Place in refrigerator to chill.
- 9. Serve!
