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!
Federal Jurisdiction is calling my name! Good NIGHT!
