Catching Up! Mommy tip, Dinner Recipe & Snack talk!

Mommy Tip Monday:
My favorite Tummy Control Cami :)
I've tried A LOT of tummy control camis, spanx, even body suits that suck it all in!
Im not a fan of "power panties" or the tummy control underwear I feel like those flatten my booty haha
And Im not big on the body suits that suck it all in.. not comfy at all! I am a fan of Tummy Control camis, I just wanted to share my favorite! Im super picky when it comes to these some are super tight around the bust area and can flatten your boobies.  :) So yeah here is my all time fav.... this sucker actually take inches of my waist !

MY #1 favorite TUMMY CONTROL CAMI of them all is the Suddenly Skinny Self Expressions Firm Control Tummy Toning Cami: I have every color they have! 


Tonights Dinner Tuesday:
Sweet & Sour Chicken (Low Calorie Style) Served with Brown Rice
OMG This was sooo good! 
iNGREDIENTS

  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • Ground Black Pepper, To Taste
  • 1 Pound Trimmed Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast, Cut Into Bite-sized Cubes
  • 1 Tablespoon Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 1 Cup 1/2“ Wide Strips Onion (about 1” long)
  • 1 Cup 1/2“ Wide Strips Green Bell Pepper (about 1” long)
  • 2 Tablespoons Freshly Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 Cup Bottled Sweet & Sour Stir-fry Sauce (I used La Choy)

Directions:

  • In a large bowl, combine cornstarch, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and mix well.
  •  Add the chicken and toss until thoroughly coated.
  • Place a large nonstick skillet or nonstick wok over high heat. When hot, add 1 teaspoon sesame oil, onion, green pepper, and garlic. Cook, stirring, until the garlic softens and the vegetables are crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Be careful not to overcook or the garlic may burn. Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl and cover to keep warm.
    Return the pan to high heat and add another teaspoon oil and half the chicken in a single layer. Cook until the pieces are lightly brown on the bottom. Flip the pieces and continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the cooked chicken the the bowl with the vegetables. Return the pan to high heat, add the remaining oil and cook the remaining chicken.
    Return the vegetables and chicken to the pan to reheat if needed. Transfer to a medium bowl, add the sauce, and mix until well combined. Divide the stir-fry among 4 bowls, and serve.

I'm trying sooo hard to stop by chocolate crush! Drinking more water each day. Making a protein smoothie with frozen veggies, ice and a diced apple at least once a day!
