CAROL’S CORNER

Welcome back to Carol’s Corner. Sorry I didn’t get to post yesterday. I just felt totally exhausted all of a sudden, didn’t get my workout in or make my step count. Guess we all need a rest day once in awhile. This was my outfit yesterday. Wore Red for National Go Red Day. Got the sweater on my shopping trip at my daughter’s. Love the whole outfit. Forgot my special pin when we took my picture yesterday, so here it is.

I got this Go Red For Women Pin by making a $2 donation at Macy’s, along with 20% off my total purchase.

My FitBit accessories.

So let’s get back to the Italian recipes that we started the other day. The next one isn’t for me,but bet some of you will like it. It’s Crabmeat Ravioli with Clam Sauce. It weighs in at 272 calories per serving. http://www.myrecipes.com/healthy-diet/calorie-counts/healthy-italian-recipes#crabmeat-ravioli-with-clam-sauce

Next up is Tomato-Basil Lasagna with Prosciutto. Lower fat cheeses cut the calories in this rich dish , reducing the calorie count to 272 calories per serving. http://www.myrecipes.com/healthy-diet/calorie-counts/healthy-italian-recipes#tomato-basil-lasagna-with-prosciutto.

Another dish that I wouldn’t like but that I know others will. We have next for you, Linguini with Clam Sauce. This version only has 290 calories per serving. http://www.myrecipes.com/healthy-diet/calorie-counts/healthy-italian-recipes#linguine-with-clam-sauce-4

Moving right along, we have Veal Picata . Small adjustments to this recipe gives you a very generous portion for only 281 calories. http://www.myrecipes.com/healthy-diet/calorie-counts/healthy-italian-recipes#veal-piccata-0

Next we have something for our sweettooth. How about Mango-Passion Fruit Gelato? You could double dip this at 130 calories per serving. http://www.myrecipes.com/healthy-diet/calorie-counts/healthy-italian-recipes#mango-passion-fruit-gelato

This one is sure to be a favorite . We have for you Instant Tiramisu. This can be prepared in under 20 minutes for only 216 calories per serving. http://www.myrecipes.com/healthy-diet/calorie-counts/healthy-italian-recipes#instant-tiramisu

There you have it for Itialian Classics all under 300 calories. Let me know if there is another Italian dish you need me to find a lightened version of and I will see what I can do. I think my next recipe segment will be on desserts. Who doesn’t like desserts? Make sure you contact me with anything you would like me to blog about. This is for your benefit. I want to discuss what is important to you. We are all in this together. We might be in different phases of our journey, but the journey never ends, it just changes along the way. As you go along the path to health and fitness, remember you will have ups and downs. Don’t let the downs , get you down. Brush yourself off, and get back up. Every minute of every day , can be the start of your next big success. Grab that opportunity for all it’s worth. YOU are worth it. Don’t ever forget that. Till next time, God Bless.
