As I eat my bowl of cookies and cream ice cream with Swedish fish on top.....

Garden Taco Rice
1 lb. ground turkey
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
1 1/2 cups water
1 1 /2 cups chopped zucchini
1 cup frozen corn
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
(If I want it spicier, I sometimes use diced tomatoes with green chiles.)
1 1/2 cups uncooked brown minute rice
4 oz. (1 cup) shredded cheese

In a large skillet, brown ground beef and onion; drain. Stir in remaining ingredients except rice and cheese; bring to a boil. Stir in rice. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 5-7 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is cooked, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Fluff mixture with a fork and sprinkle with cheese. Cover and let stand three minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish with cilantro, cherry tomatoes or we especially like it with avocado.
From my friend Kim with modifications by me.

Zero Point Salad

Organic Baby Greens
Tomato Basil Fat Free Feta Cheese (handful)
Fat Free Italian Dressing.

That's it! If you want to add a few more points, add grilled chicken, bacon bits, and Craisins.
