String Cheese Mushrooms

I came up with a new recipe this weekend. (Try not to laugh!)

New Recipe #16 of 25:

String Cheese Mushrooms

Serves 2
Nutrition per serving: 37 calories; 1.5 fat; 2.5 carbs; 5 protein


Sargento Light String Cheese
Six (6) Medium Mushrooms


I know that you don't have to be super creative to think of stuffing mushrooms with string cheese, but I came up with the idea the other night, tried it and felt like Paula Dean after realizing how much of a success it was! I cubed up one slice of string cheese to 6 medium sized mushrooms. I sprinkled garlic salt and italian seasoning on top and grilled them for about 10 minutes.

After work last night, I was really drained. I made dinner as soon as I got home and then my husband and I cleaned up the house a bit. I almost didn't workout, but then I remembered my big loss that I had just from following my exercise and meal plan last week. I don't expect a big loss like that again this week, but I know that I won't see anything but a gain if I don't keep up my momentum! So, even thought I was exhausted, I decided that I would go for a walk with my dog, Max. He hasn't really had any alone time without our new puppy, Topher, around. I called my mom and asked her to meet us for a walk at 8:00 p.m. This was a good idea since I know that I wouldn't have gone for a walk if there wasn't somebody counting on me to go. Max, for one, wouldn't have known if I decided to ditch him.

That brings me to walk #4 of 10 with Max as part of my 25 by 25 list! I know that I have taken Max for more than 10 walks this year, I just need to remember to blog about them!


  1. :) yum dinner!

    keep up the workouts girl!

  2. Sounds yummy. I never thought of just stuffing cheese into mushroom caps without all the breading and butter etc. Hope you have a healthy week!
