My “To Do List” is DONE!
Always fun to wake up after a good nights sleep and see that it is snowing at the end of March! HA! I couldn’t believe my eyes, when I lifted my head up from under the down comforter on Monday morning to find the ground covered and that the white stuff was still falling from the sky. It is spring right? 🙂 Oh well, what can you do, except make a big pot of coffee, a delicious bowl of oats, and just start the day. And that’s just what I did!
Mondays are always Mondays! I had a ton of energy this AM, after a weekend that consisted of hot yoga; a big birthday present to myself (blog post to come in a few weeks); a fun yoga shoot; brunch with a great friend; taxes; and tackling my long “To Do List”. I am very proud of myself, because I got everything done and then some. High-Fives to me! 🙂
With that being said, here is what I was eating on this snowy, gray, and foggy New Jersey Monday! Everything was delicious, healthy, easy, and perfect for a hard workout. Today’s workout combined 35 minutes on the Stair Master and a 35 Minute back and core workout. I made a promise to myself this week to include more weight training, because I have been avoiding it the past couple of weeks. Enough talk….check it out:
- 2x Scrambled eggs
- 4x Roasted brussel sprouts
- 1x Roasted green pepper
- 1/2 diced tomato
- 2 T Garden Salsa (from Costco)
- 1x Thomas Light Mulit-Grain English Muffins (100-Calorie)
- 1x Babybel Cheese
- 1/4 c almonds
- 1x Gala Apple
Dinner: Inspired from Eating Well Magazine
- 8 ounce tomato sauce
- 2x 4 ounce diced green chiles
- 3 T cider vinegar
- 2 T honey
- 1 T paprika
- 2 T tomato paste
- 1 T Worcestershire Sauce
- 2 teaspoons dried mustard
- 1 T chile powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 lbs skinless chicken breasts
- 1x diced onion
- 2x chopped garlic
Place all ingredients in the slow cooker and put on low for 5 1/2 hours. When time is up, take the chicken out of the slow cooker, shred, and place back into the slow cooker. Yes, it is that easy! 🙂 You can serve this however your little heart desires. I served it with some toasted Italian bread and fresh salad. Delicious and enjoy!
