“My Little Chick-a-Pea” 400 Calorie Lunch
If you know me, then you know I LOVE black and white movies. So today’s recipe pays homage to the characters played by Mae West and W.C. Fields in “My Little Chickadee”.
W.C. Fields: You must come up and see me sometime.
Mae West: Oh yeah, yeah, I’ll do that my little chickadee.
I certainly don’t mind a little meat on my bones. After all, my whole world revolves around food! But lately I’ve been resembling W.C. Fields, and I’d rather resemble Mae West!
When things get a little too juicy over here, I try to build out my meals with tons of crunchy veggies. To keep my portions under control, I try to stay around the 400-500 calorie mark for meals (with a couple very light snacks and exercise in between).
I therefore give you my lunchtime concoction. This one would be great on a bed of romaine lettuce, or just on its own. You can triple the recipe and have lunches for a few days.
Bursting with fiber, flavor and color, this recipe is gonna fill your cheeks with color and feed your soul!
Just the way I like ya, my little chickadees!
