It definitely feels like spring is in the air! It is so nice to be siting here typing out this post at 7pm and it is still light outside.
I managed to get out for a 2.5 mile run after work, fit in 20 minutes of strength training, and a light 10 min cool down and stretch and its still light out!
Tonight I made a very well balanced meal, if I do say so myself :) I wanted something that was fast and packed full of protein.
I decided on Pineapple Curry Chicken, with steamed broccoli and crazy rice!
|Pineapple Curry Chicken, Steamed Broccoli, and Crazy Rice!|
2 cups of brown rice
1 can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp chili powder
salt and pepper to taste (try to use sea salt)
Cook the brown rice as per instructions, as it is simmering and when there is about 15 minutes left on the clock add in your spices and salt and pepper, add in the kidney beans. Stir it all together and simmer for the remaining 15 minutes. This is a nice change to regular old brown rice. And because you are combining rice and beans you are eating a complete protein, this a great example of food combining. I top it with a bit of sriracha for heat, and because sriracha pretty much tastes good on anything!
Last week for a treat I made Chocolate Pudding ( aka avocado pudding) sounds gross but it is sooooo amazing! I could eat it all day long.
(sorry the pics are not awesome and it is in Tupperware containers because we took it for a snack at work)
I used this recipe below from The Whole Food Athlete
On a side note, my poor fur child has started to limp on her front right leg :( and we have no idea why. She has been very sad today.... I am taking her on very short, light walks but I really hope she gets better soon.
Have a wonderful Monday night everyone,
