I see the post about the healthy cereals and I love any cereal that has fiber. There are so many choices, I found my favorites; Mini Wheat with Cinnamon Streusel and Honey Nut. One morning I wanted some hot cereal I didn't have any oatmeal I experienced with the cereal. If you needed a nice warm-up in the morning. Try this: Put 1/2 cup or more of the flavored Shredded Wheats, then add low fat milk, pop in microwave for 45 secs or so. Now I want that all the time now. Try it, you'll love it. View Thread

When I saw the frying chicken post, I just thought a few of my chicken recipes that I had experienced with before. When it comes to "fried" anything, I conjure the old ways that grandma's used to make their chicken with the egg, flour, whatever they used, and throw the chicken in the frying pan ( i think that they all used to iron skillets those days). The skillet had about 4 or 5 inches of grease, lard, whatever they used... would choke an army and put a person in heart attack mode. Ok....I started to post a recipe then all a sudden I went on a tangent. One of my own versions of crispy chicken. I never use chicken parts, I use boneless chicken breasts.
6 - 8 chicken breasts (according of servings) 2 or 3 eggs beaten Corn flakes or any crunchy like cereal... like (think out of-the-box). Crush the cereal into a big ziploc bag. Add seasonings such as garlic powder, onion powder, dash of salt, pepper, Mrs Dash if you have it. For those that like spicy....add some curry, or cajun seasoning.
Dip the chicken in the egg, shake 2 or 3 breasts in the ziploc bag with the cornflakes mixture at a time. Put them on a sprayed cooking pan or sheet, about 350 deg. till the chicken is done. I hope some people will like the recipe. No big woop.
Yes, it's true...cheese is a a source of fat, cholesterol and more importantly, saturated fat. So what can we do about using cheese in recipes when we are trying to trim down and/or eat less fat and saturated fat for our heart?
Tip #1 Switch to reduced fat cheese whenever possible There are some great tasting reduced fat cheeses available, making it easier than ever to switch to these lighter options in recipes. And when you do, the calories will decrease by 30%, the fat grams by about 40% and the saturated fat by a third! But the calcium and protein will still be high!
Tip #2 Sometimes you have to use regular cheese, so use half as much There are situations when a particular type of cheese is needed for the recipe and a reduced fat version is not an option--like is the case with parmesan cheese, brie, gruyere, etc. In these types of recipes, reach for the real cheese, just use less and you might also be able to cut back on fat and saturated fat in other steps and ingredients in the recipe.
Tip #3 Pair cheese with healthy food partners Since cheese is a source of saturated fat, try to pair it with lower fat and higher fiber food partners such as pears, whole wheat pasta, whole grains, beans, even vegetables instead of high fat crackers, pastry, or high fat meats like salami or sausage.View Thread
