Chicken "Lo Mein" For Two

Tuesday has come and gone and we are only 10 days away from Christmas! Usually this is the time I start to fall off the wagon with eating well, but I am happy to report I haven't had one single Christmas cookie or candy yet. I'm trying to keep anything "bad" out of the house and only splurge on the Eve and Christmas. So far so good ;)

I've been trying to load up on protein, veggies and healthy fats. Nothing new that eating this way is the way to go, but sometimes when the weather gets colder and more temptations cross your way, it can get tricky. I started my morning off with an omelette, which was delicious and satisfying. It was simple to whip up and kept me full all the way through lunch.

Skinny Spaghetti Squash Alfredo

Happy hump day, W+A readers. Last night we picked out our Christmas tree and got it prepped for ornaments and lights. We got most of our decorating done around the condo and plan to put the finishing touches on our tree tonight. These little guys came out though. They are our favorites!

Look at those dapper gentlemen!

Last night we were craving some comfort food so I decided to make a lightened up take on fettucine alfredo. I had a spaghetti squash in the fridge so figured I'd use that as our faux fettucine. Here's everything you need to know:

-1 medium-sized spaghetti squash
-1 tbsp butter
-3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
-2 tbsp flour
-1 c of fat-free milk
-1 tbsp of light cream cheese (I used WW whipped)
-1 c grated Parmesan cheese, plus 2 Tablespoons extra for topping
