    Question What Was Lunch And Dinner Yesterday?

    Lunch: HUGE salad: torn spinach leaves, red butterleaf lettuce, parsley, mustard greens, chopped carrot/celery/cuke/pickled beets (0-point amount), fresh tomatoes with 1-cup chana dal beans and 1 TBS. homemade vinagrette and 1 TBS. homemade reduced balsamic dresssing (0-point).

    Dinner: 1/2 C. whole wheat couscous rehydrated in chicken broth, steamed baby kale (homegrown), and 5 oz. tilapia, with fresh lemon juice.

    BOTH my meals were soooooooooooo good!

    Lunch was the DELICIOUS Bulgur and Tomatoes recipe (from the SiFi Recipe Thread). I added zucchini, a sun-dried tomato chicken/turkey sausage (not Si/Fi), and a bit of parmesan cheese (not Si/Fi).

    Dinner was a Trader Joe's Chili Lime Chicken Burger with salsa, brown rice, and steamed broccoli.

    BTW, I counted points for the burger, but here are the ingredients--could this be SiFi?

    Ingredients: Ground chicken, onions, bell peppers, garlic, cilantro, natural flavor, salt, lime juice concentrate, red pepper flakes.
    Nutrition per burger: cal -150; fat - 6g; fiber - 2g

    Ground chicken, "no more than 7% fat, limited to one meal a day". So is there a way of knowing it's fat content?...

    Thanks, Carol. I don't know if there's some way to determine what the fat content might be based on the nutritional info? Anyone?

    I counted points for it, but was just wondering when I looked at the ingredients. In any case, for the 3 pts., it makes for a really easy protein.

    Question Re: What Was Lunch And Dinner Yesterday?

    Maybe there's a way to compare with the points for ground chicken (7% fat) for the same amount...

    How much did your chicken patty weigh?

    Lunch - Leftover dinner from the night before - brown rice with chicken, veggies and canned tomatoes

    Carol, let me know what you think of the red quinoa. I tried it once and found it hard to work with as it the seeds are smaller than the white. It ended up all over my kitchen counter. How do you cook your quinoa? The white quinoa I roast in frying pan and then add chicken broth. All the instructions including Lorna Sass say to do 1:2 but I prefer 1:1 1/2 as it makes it nuttier.

    Aimee, I'm sure if you contact Trader Joe's, they'll give you that information. I guess you could call the store or send the company an email.

    Oh boy, now you've got me worried!

    Last time I put the quinoa in my RICE COOKER and cooked it just like white rice. Added a little bit of Better Than Bouillon--chicken flavor to the water.

    That was the easiest way, and I had scads of it left...

    The calories for the veg and spice in this are a negligible part of the total.

    To get the total fat percentage, divide the total cal into the fat cal.

    So, 6 cal divided by 150 cal equals 4 %. The chili lime chicken patty is 4 % fat.

    I wish my Trader Joe carried them!

    Dinner: homemade gluten-free pizza with grape tomatoes and sheep cheese. Had some fried (canola oil) moong dal for a snack!

    Carol, I debated about saying anything because I did not want you to worry. I am sure it would be fine in the rice cooker.

    I just wanted to clarify that the no more than 7% fat rule is about GROUND BEEF ONLY! Ground chicken and ground turkey are limited to once a day but there is no fat limit on them.

    Meanwhile, I don't know if ww would conside that a filling food or not, since things like turkey sausage are NOT filling foods. I'd say to use your own judgment!

    I figured this out incorrectly.

    The chicken patty has 6 grams of fat, not 6 calories of fat. Each fat gram has 9 calories, so 6 grams of fat equals 56 calories of fat.

    So, dividing the total calories (150) into the fat calories (56) equals 37% fat in this product.

    So sorry I made this product look so much better than it is.

    Just like in politics, one little math error makes things look so much better than they really are!

    Donna, thanks for figuring out the fat percentage. I've been counting the points for them and will continue to. They come frozen with 4 in a small box at Trader Joe's, if you're looking for them. They are an easy and delicious way to add protein to a meal.

    Lunch: I had this out yesterday. It was huge and very filling. Chopped Salad: romaine, tomatoes, red and yellow peppers, jicama, grilled chicken, walnuts, feta, and fork-dipped vinagrette with dashes of balsamic vinegar

    Dinner: Not very hungry, so just had some brown rice with a bit of parmesan cheese and a banana.
