Cantaloupe-Banana Slush


I know I have posted mostly main meals, so I thought I would switch it up and post something you could have for a snack or breakfast!


I have a smoothie machine from college and I dusted it off last week. Smoothies are easy, quick, and delish. I will try the Polynesian Pineapple Shake next and report back!

2 points per serving


3/8 cup coarsely chopped cantaloupe
3/8 cup sliced ripe banana (about 2 medium)
3/8 cup pineapple-orange-banana juice
5/8 teaspoon sugar
5/8 teaspoon lime juice


Arrange cantaloupe and banana in a single layer on a baking sheet; freeze until firm. Place frozen fruit in a food processor; process until chunky. With processor on, slowly add remaining ingredients; process until smooth. Serve immediately.

Makes 1 cup (1 serving)
2 POINTS per serving

WE RATED THIS A 10! It was a delish. You do need more salt and pepper...I always had extra seasons like garlic and onion. It was VERY GOOD!

Jackie Warner ~ Power Circuit Training ~

Helllllooooo, Friends! Long time no talk! Maybe you've been wondering where I've been thinking I've fallen off the wagon or perhaps traded in blogging for Ice Cream eating... NO! 2010 has gotten off to a great start for me physically. I started the year off with a food cleanse & detox and it got my head in the right place. I feel better than I have in a long time, and I think I look better than I have in a long time. Instead of focusing on counting points I've been more involved in understanding what I'm eating and making healthy decisions.

FourFatChicks blog definitely changed my work out life and got me into a routine. I no longer feel guilty for skipping the gym, but I try and change things up enough that I never want to skip! I still do a lot of workouts in my living room, because as of today there are no classes offered at my gym. {However, I saw a sign that they expanding & starting classes soon! Maybe Bob Harper will come and teach SPIN!}

I love my exercise channel and being able to try workout videos before I buy them. My next video purchase will DEFINITELY be ~

I do the total body circuit and it seems easy enough to get through, but afterwards... I walk with a limp for 2 days! This is a BIG deal for me, because I work out often enough that I might get a little sore, but not majorly sore for 2 freaking days! The best part is that while going through the circuits you don't feel like you're going to die, but you do have to work for it.

I've seen the video at Target & Wal*Mart and it's on right now for $7.99. Such a good deal to add to your collection! Now, who is excited about Jillian's new yoga video? {Hint, Hint ~ ME!}

So over the weekend my husband went on a quail hunt and brought back tons of meat. Quail is only 2 points for 2oz! I grilled the quail last night and it was SIMPLE and fast and turned out delish! Here's the easy steps below.

I marinated half the meat in Italian dressing and half in BBQ

I took lean bacon (haha) and used a pick to help it stay on the bird


Grilled it over medium heat for 13 minutes and BAM delish and easy!
