Week 2 and a yummy chicken recipe

Sorry everyone for not blogging on Wednesday.  I was not feeling well at all.  As you know last week I announced on the blog that I was trying something new in that I was eating healthy and working out. 

So far it feels really good to be eating healthy.  When you start to eat light foods you just feel so much better and you actually have more energy. 

Here is a breakdown throughout the day:

Breakfast: 1 protein-the size of a deck of cards (meat, eggs, tofu, etc.) 1 carbohydrate-the size of the palm of your hand (whole wheat products) Fruit or vegetables-about 1/2-1 cup

Typically I have 1 whole wheat pita bread with some version of laughing cow cheese spread and egg whites on top with blueberries or strawberries.  Sometimes I may have more fruit and not have any pita bread.  Overall, its a nice breakfast that is easy to make and tastes good.

Snack: Vegetables, fruit, or Greek yogurt

Typically I have a Greek yogurt.

Lunch: 1 protein-the size of a deck of cards Vegetable-about 2 cups Dressing-2 Tablespoons

Typically I have some type of salad either romaine or spinach with either chicken breast, tuna, or salmon and a little bit of Italian Dressing. For the proteins I typically have what I made the night before in a salad.

Snack: Vegetables, fruit, or Greek yogurt

Typically I have fruits of vegetables.

Workout: Get a nice work out in whether is be running on the treadmill, working out on the elliptical, stepping on the StairMaster, cycling, running outside, Insanity, swimming, etc.

Dinner: 1 protein-the size of a deck of cards Vegetable-about 2 cups Dressing-2 Tablespoons 1 carbohydrate-2 days a week only (brown rice, couscous, etc.)

Typically similar to Lunch I have meat and a salad.  For the meats I use lots of different seasonings, cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, and olive oil to create some things that taste pretty good.

Don’t forget to have one day where can eat whatever you want!  Just don’t over do it!

My favorite so far is Red Wine Mexican Chicken! Ingredients: 1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar 1 Chicken Breast McCormick Perfect Pinch Mexican Seasoning 1 Spritz Olive Oil

Take one chicken breast and marinate it in red wine vinegar and a dash of Mexican seasoning for at least 30 minutes.

Take the chicken out spritz with olive oil and sprinkle Mexican seasoning on both sides.  Cook either on the grill, in a George Foreman grill, or in a non-stick pan.  Best quality is when you cook in a non-stick pan.  Chop the chicken up and serve over a salad or rice with a small salad on the side.

Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram (photoplanningservices) photographs of food and other things will be posted there!
