Spicy Stir Fried Tofu and Snow Peas

Spicy Stir Fried Tofu and Snowpeas

Yes . It’s true that I lost 4 kilos in five weeks. And I am so happy about it because I have been trying really hard to keep up with my gym /workout schedule  at the same time take care of my kids , run different errands, church commitments ,retail selling on the side, and a lot more.  I believe that my desire to achieve my normal body weight(and of course to look good) gave me the motivation to exercise on a regular basis and prepare healthy meals  that I badly need to lose weight. I have been eating healthy since October 8, 2011.  Since then I have made it my passion to prepare healthy  but delicious meals. Who told you that eating healthy is boring and tasteless? Here’s one of my healthy and tasty meals that I have prepared. I enjoyed  the crunchiness of snow peas, and the sweet and spicy flavor of the dish paired with 1/3 cup of hot brown rice.

Healthy Chicken Wrap

I made a delicious and healthy whole wheat tortilla chicken wrap for lunch loaded with cucumber, lettuce, onions and tomatoes. I used grilled chicken (marinated in sundried tomato pesto),a teaspoon of yoghurt and half a  teaspoon of low fat cottage cheese for the dressing.Ooops of course i didn’t forget to put some hot sauce – yes hot sauce! It has been scientifically tested, proven, and reported in the Journal of Biological Chemistry that it actually raises resting body temperature.Capsaicin, the active chemical in pepper stimulates a sensory receptor found in our neurons, creating thermogenesis- the process in which cells convert energy into heat.
Another side effect? An increase in metabolism! Want to grab a  bite of my healthy chicken wrap?
