Low Cal Wednesday

Several months ago Suze Orman was on Oprah talking about the deficit of the country. In the audience that day the credit card debt was over two million dollars. Wow you say. I believe she said the audience consisted of 250 people. She talked about ways people could try not to use your credit cards. One of her suggestions was to eat at home. We took this literally until today, I believe it has been about 60 days since we have eaten out. We do not have any credit card or any debt period but enjoyed the challenge to see if we could do it.

Today we are celebrating my parents 55 Wedding Anniversary. If or when I celebrate my 55 Wedding Anniversary I will be 101 years old. I probably won't care and either will any one else. What an accomplishment for Mom & Dad. We would have celebrated the 50th but we had a death in the family that week it was not time to celebrate. We get to eat out. Now I don't really want to go out. I won't know what the calorie intake will be, I will try to eat lite.



Since I won't be cooking today I am sharing my favorite low cal treat. They can be eaten hot or cold I prefer the cold method. They come in twelve bags inside this bag. I just keep in the freezer and get one bag out at a time. All natural soy beans. The pod is not edible. One of the best things if you are watching your cholesterol 0g of cholesterol. Great heart healthy treat. The FDA has determined diets low in fat and cholesterol that include 25g of soy protein per day may reduce the risk of heart disease.

I spent way too much time peeling edamame last night for a recipe I'm making tonight. I did in in front of the tv, so that made it a little better!

Isn't edamame the best! My daughter even loves it!

What a fun celebration! But I hear you -- on the rare occasions when we do eat out I usually want home made food! LOL!!
