So I am trying to eat healthy again and have started doing weight watchers again. I am trying to do better about eating left overs and using ingredients that I already have at home without eating TOO much processed stuff. So today I decided to use some left over tilapia, pesto and lettuce before it went bad so the Tilapia salad with basil pesto ranch was born... and I can tell you now that I will be making this a lot!
Here is what I did...
I took some pesto that I bought for a pasta dish last week and mixed it with 1/2 c. regular Ranch and 1/2 c. light ranch. Bryan hates light ranch so I mixed it so maybe he wouldn't notice-- and he didn't.
Then I refrigerated it and let it sit for about an hour.
In the mean time I mixed some spinach leaves with feta cheese, olives and slivered almonds.
So there is my new healthy recipe for the day. I am always needing new things to make for lunch because I usually only eat canned soups or sandwiches, but this just seems so much better for me.
***Maybe I shouldn't mention this... but I also made a few chocolate chip cookies to go along as dessert, but I was a good girl, I only ate two and sent the rest with Bryan to work-- Now that is a start!***
