As promised/warned, I'm trying to lighten things up with my cooking, and this was my first attempt. I found this recipe at Gina's WW Recipes. (you can click there for her recipe and nutrition info)
It seemed to have potential with the mixture of ricotta, feta, spinach, parsley, garlic, and green onions, but mine seemed to be lacking something. Maybe more garlic, or more salt. I'm just not sure.
And in the interest of simplicity, if I had it to do over, I would just bake the spinach filling separately and serve it along side the chicken. It smelled really good while it was baking!
Can we talk about maltitol for a minute?
I have eaten products that contained this sugar alcohol before, and was aware of their possible side effects.
So yesterday I bought a bag of cookies which will go unnamed Joseph's to help dampen my cookie craving without so much sugar. Then proceeded to eat what was a regular serving of cookies according to the package.
In about 2 hours, I was feeling a lot like this dog.
Like I said, I was aware of the GI disturbances that this product could bring on, but I was floored by the severity of it. And oh my stinking heck, the headache! I had no idea about that little bonus. Apparently the headache happens more often if you consume maltitol on an empty stomach.
Oh well, live and learn. And in this case, I literally tossed my cookies, into the trash!
