Salsa Chicken

I recently purchased an Instant Pot because I couldn’t handle not having one any longer. It was an impulse buy, for sure – but it has proven to be one of my favorite pieces of kitchen equipment. I’d put it in the ranks of my Kitchen-aid mixer and Vita-Mix. It’s that awesome. Anyway, I’ve experimented in…

Grilled Chicken + Mixed Greens + Cashew-Soy Dressing

Today is the last day of the Crossfit Games and I'm pretty sad that it's almost over. It's been exhilarating to watch the most bad ass women and men fight for the top spot and earn the name of "Fittest on Earth." While I may never compete at that elite of a level, it's definitely…

Enmoladas

This past week, we were in Destin, Florida taking our first family vacation. The little gal loved the beach and it was so sweet to see her eyes light up as she experienced something new. I made sure to take advantage of the beach view and managed to do a quick workout in the sand…

Breakfast Pizza

Chicken Chop Salad

Week one of Cut 3 went, well… it went. I ate a lot of the same. And I ate a lot of non-template compliant foods. In other words – I YOLO-ed a little harder than I should have. Two catered work meetings and a couple busy nights left me with a few bad decisions and…

Chicken + Green Beans + Pasta

Going into Cut 3 of RP means losing all rest day carbs and fats. Kind of makes me want to work out everyday so that I can indulge a little bit – but we all know how important those rest days are to help build muscle, endurance and strength. Yesterday, I competed in my first…

Casein Cookies

The casein before bedtime is probably my least favorite time of the day during this RP journey. I’ve been working on varying options of getting the stuff down besides the boring shake. There’s recipes for casein cookies all over the interwebs, but many of them are way over my macro intake. However, a fellow Crossfitter…

Chicken Pho

One of my favorite foods, and easily adaptable for the current RP diet template I’m on is Vietnamese pho. An aromatic broth accompanied with tender marinated chicken breasts and an assortment of vegetables will make you think twice about your typical “bland” meal prep. Ingredients: Grilled chicken Whole wheat ramen noodles Bean sprouts Jalapeño Scallions…
