Why do you stumble so often despite all your good intentions?
Why do you sabotage yourself?
Why are you here anyway?
If you’re making it, if you’re succeeding on this weight-loss journey, tell me why this time is different than all the others.
Why are you going to make it this time when you’ve fallen short before?
Why are you going to keep it off this time when you’ve gained it back before?
Why are you a different person now than you were before?

3 cups rotini pasta, uncooked
2 jars (16 oz. each) thick and chunky salsa
2 cups Kraft 2% Milk Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided
1 cup nonfat cottage cheese
1 can (16 oz.) black beans, rinsed, drained
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen whole kernel corn, thawed, drained
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Cook rotini as directed on package; drain. Combine rotini, salsa, 1 cup of the cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, beans and corn. Spoon into 13×9- inch baking pan sprayed with no stick cooking spray; sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheddar cheese. Bake at 375°F for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with cilantro.
I got this recipe here.
I made this exactly as is, except for the cilantro. It didn't really need it. (Actually I forgot it when I was shopping, haha.) Oh wait, I lied. I did add half a teaspoon of cumin. This was a delicious casserole. The best thing is that this makes 8 servings, and each serving is 300 calories. 1/8 of a 9x13 casserole dish is pretty big! So there is lots of food for not too many calories. We also had asparagus. I simmered it for probably 7 or 8 minutes, drained it, put a little olive oil on it, along with some black pepper and parmesan cheese. DELISH!
In other cooking news, I made my first omelette this morning. I did a pretty good job, too, I was so proud of myself! Omelettes may be on the menu more often now that I know what I'm doing. =)
