First off, I have to give a shout out to TJ from TJ’s Test Kitchen!! I profiled her weight loss story a few months ago, you can read my interview about her HERE. She’s lost over 70 pounds and on her most recent weigh in, she is now the lowest she’s ever been as an adult!!! Yeah TJ!!! What a great feeling and what a great inspiration!!!
It inspired me to get moving at work today! I’ve been riding my bike to work, but that’s only 3.5 miles total, so a friend at work and I walked briskly for 30 minutes during lunch. It was absolutely beautiful outside and so nice to get away from my desk for a little bit! After discussing this with my sister Biz, she was suggesting I walk to work instead of riding my bike. It would be about a 25 minute walk, but if I did that twice a day, that’s 50 minutes AND walked 30 minutes during my lunch break, that can add up! So, I am going to try that experiment and see what happens.
Now, on to my dinner!!
I make chicken several times a week, and when I got home I knew I was going to do something, but was quite surprised at how good it came out! I cut up chicken breasts into cubes and threw them in a hot skillet coated with a little Canola oil. As I was searching my spice rack, I decided to coat the chicken with cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and a little black pepper. Just enough to coat all the chicken. On the side I made some roasted potatoes.
Once the chicken was done, I took a bite and thought, “This would taste good on a tortilla!”
So, I took a tortilla, added some romaine lettuce, chopped onion, a little cheese, the chicken and some hot sauce and it was so good!
You could probably do this dish in a crock pot too. Just add the chicken and the spices and maybe a 1/2 cup of chicken stock, some onion and green pepper and you could serve it over rice or noodles, add a little salsa on top, a little sour cream, there are LOTS of possibilities!
