  1. Great Way to Start Your Day!

    August 1, 2012 by Kristin

    This has to be one of my favorite breakfasts, an egg on top of a 100 calorie veggie patty and 1/2 of a 100 calorie bun, so its really only 50 calories.  Total calories of this meal: 220!  Its filling and satisfying.

    I recommend buying veggie patties from Whole Foods.  This brand has a half serving of veggies, lots of fiber and protein, and low in calories.

  7. Spicy Avocado Chicken

    June 18, 2012 by Kristin

    So I was looking in my fridge and I had 2 avocados, an onion, and chicken breast.  I came up with spicy avocado chicken.  I used some spices from the spice cabinet to make it a little tangy.

    Ingredients:

    • chicken breasts
    • Mexican chili powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper
    • 1 avocado
    • 1/2 onion
    • 1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro
    • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
    • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
    • pinch of sugar
    1. Use the salt and pepper and chili powder to season the chicken breasts.
    2. Cook the chicken in a skillet in medium heat and use coconut oil instead of olive oil.  Cook the chicken until it is cooked all the way through.
    3. While the chicken is cooking, mince the onion and avocado, and mix with olive oil, cilantro, lime juice, and sugar.  Spoon the mixture onto the cooked chicken and serve!

    I guess my theme for dinner tonight was green :)

      90 degrees)

    •    Run down the beach for 8 minutes and run back to your starting point
    •    Do a couple sets of 25 three-count arm
      haulers and flutters kick
    • You should be all sandy when you are done, so finish it off by jumping in the water and cooling down.
