White Chicken Chili & 6 days to go...

2 egg omelet (no surprise really)
1/2 chocolate protein shake

Spinach salad with Annie's Tuscan dressing

White Chicken Chili
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 bag Northern beans
1 med onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
a couple of jalepeno slices (I use jarred)
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp oregano leaves
1 tsp marjoram leaves
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 Cups Organic Chicken Broth
3 Cups Water
1 tsp Lawrys Season Salt

Cube and brown chicken in Extra virgin olive oil. Put all remaining ingredients into crockpot and stir to mix thoroughly. Add chicken and cook on High heat for 5-6 hours. Can be cooked on low for 10-12, but the beans tend to be overdone.

I have enjoyed the cleanse thus far, especially the 10 pound weight loss I am currently sporting. I wonder if the weight will stay off, if I continue to eat this way. :) The only thing I do not like is that I have spent more on food this month than I am comfortable with. I will have to find a way to decrease my food budget. Spring, summer and fall would help considerably; eating in-season fruits and veggies.
