Flat Belly

Here's a yummy recipe that won't BLOAT YA:

Chicken-Olive Sauté
Time: 30 minutes Servings: 4

Ingredients • 1 Tbsp olive oil
•1 lg onion, coarsely chopped
• 3 lg cloves garlic, minced
• 1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary or 3/4 tsp dried rosemary, crumbled
• 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1" pieces
• 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
• 40 lg pitted kalamata olives, sliced (about 1 1/3 c), MUFA
• 8 oz lg cherry tomatoes, halved, or 2 med tomatoes, cut into 1/2" pieces (about 1 1/2 c)

1. Warm oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and rosemary and cook, stirring often, until tender and just starting to brown, 3 to 4 minutes.

2. Add chicken, sprinkle with pepper, and stir. Cook, turning often, until no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes.

Add olives. Cook and stir 1 minute until heated and fragrant.

Stir in tomatoes. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook 4 to 5 minutes longer, until tomatoes are heated and juicy.

Serve over rice or couscous, if desired.

Flat Belly Bonus: Kalamata olives ripen on the tree, so they have higher oil content--and therefore more belly-slimming MUFA--than regular canned or jarred types.

I need to get a move on with losing weight - Rob informed me I have a couple months to get in shape. I didn't know if I should kill him or thank him. He said I've done it before I can do it again. GET MY BUTT MOVING is what I'm shooting for.

Yum, looks and sounds good. Did you try it? With rice or couscous? Plus, did you find the ingredients? Yes, we need to get our butts moving and you have done it before and always amazed me! Yesterday I ran two and walked three times around the block. I need to get the Ab dvd out. Oh, I like the photo you used because she looks "normal." Keep up the motivation. Jason is FINALLY in with the weight loss too!
