Core Brown Rice Pasta Dish

(Originally posted on 5/17/08 on Endless Possibilities Blog)

I had lost a little weight with out doing anything. Yes, I have remained wheat free, but I have not been following Weight Watchers lately. I guess the stress of everything made me lose focus. I have also not been able to work out which I miss and working out always made me feel good.

Four days ago I weighed myself and I lost six pounds. Then last night I weighed myself and it said I gained five:(

Turns out those wheat free cookies and some of the ice cream from my sister's graduation celebration have caught up to me. So I am back to the core program of weight watchers because I do not need to eat crap and not work out and end up feeling like the Goodyear Blimp!

Tonight, I was making myself dinner and I came up with a Brown Rice Past Dish that I thought I would post on here for Molly and any one else following the core program.

Here is how I made my dinner:

-1 cup of shrimp
-1/2 cup of brown rice pasta (you can use whole wheat and it will still be core. )
-1 teaspoon of olive oil
-10 green olives
- 1/2 mushrooms,drained
- pepper, salt, garlic, basil (to taste)
- spray oil cooking spray

*Cook the brown rice pasta in boiling water. Strain.

*While the pasta is cooking, coat frying pan with spray.
* Toss shrimp, olives, mushrooms in pan
* Season with the spices
* Stir to evenly distribute the spices

Once the pasta and the ingredients are finished cooking, place pasta in bowl and mix together with the ingredients in the frying pan. Drizzle with olive oil and mix well.
