I haven’t been grocery shopping in over a week so tonight’s dinner is somewhat similar to breakfast…somewhat.
Disclaimer: One of the purposes of me starting this blog was so that I would be more adventurous in my eating and cooking. See, I tend to eat the same things every day…boring, I know. Be patient with me as I try to switch up my meal ideas!
Tonight’s new recipe: Healthy Chipolte
Wait, is that possible? YESSSS!
1/2 cup brown organic rice
3/4 cup Trader Joe’s fire roasted peppers and onions
1/4 cup black beans
1 Chile Lime Chicken Burger (Trader Joe’s)
1 Tortilla Factory Low Carb Wrap
These guys are delicious…just like the tortilla I had at breakfast…a little bit bigger though because it’s a wrap. Def recommend this gem.
I mixed the peppers, rice and beans together while I waited for my chicken burger to cook. I just threw it in a pan and cooked it that way. Very elementary.
I cut up the chicken burger into strips…
And placed them on the bed or rice, beans, and peppers!
The total calorie count is 415 calories…high I know but you get SO much food. Plus, compared to Chipolte…that’s pocket change. You could easily cut out the tortilla and just do everything in a bowl. I would also suggest adding salsa or something…most people will probably find this a little dry. You could also add cheese, sour cream or guac…however, I hate all those things so that’s why I didn’t do it.
The Marathon…EEK THE CAT
So the marathon is a week from this coming Sunday. O.M.G. And I’ve been having problems with my shins…I tried to go out running last night and made it a block before I had to hobble home. This morning I popped 4 Advil before my 5:45 am run and was “o.k.” I know I need to ice but it’s really annoying to run an ice cube up and down my shin.
To remedy this problem I ventured to the CVS across the street from me and got this:
Hopefully my shins will start feeling better before the race!!
In addition, I picked up this baby…to satisfy my after dinner sweet tooth. I know most of you have one! Even though I was still pretty full from dinner…I couldn’t resist!
Crappy picture…but I wanted to show you the nutritional value…not the best butttttt…it’s better than DQ! Well, not better in the taste department but better for you.
Federal Jurisdiction is calling my name! Good NIGHT!
