Try This

We’re still trying to get in all 6 fruits and vegetables each day.  On a difficulty level, it ranks right up there with Geometry, but we’re making it.

Of course Coach is doing much better than I am; I have issues with fiber.  I also have issues with Lebron James and Miley Cyrus, but who wants to hear about all that?

Anyway, lets talk roughage, shall we?

Since there are only so many ways to dress a salad or cook broccoli, I’ve been trolling for recipes.  We had this one tonight.  Coach and G gave it a 10.  It is a must try, and again, so easy, cheap, and light.

Spicy Chicken Tacos 
(Weight Watchers points 4 points for 1 taco with 2 oz. chicken and 1/2 oz. cheese and 1 tbsp. of sauce)

12 taco shells or tortillas (we used some high fiber, high protein tortillas)
6 boneless chicken breasts, pounded to about 1/2 inch thickness (about 3 pounds of chicken)
Caribbean seasoning
2 cups shredded cheese (we used Sargento light Mexican blend)
Sour cream sauce
Jalapeno Slaw

Sprinkle the chicken with the Caribbean seasoning and grill.  Cut into thin slices.  Add to taco shells/tortillas and top with slaw and sour cream sauce.

Sour Cream Sauce
1 cup sour cream (we used fat free)
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 tablespoons lime juice

Mix together.  Take a good long whiff and smile. 

Jalapeno Slaw
1 10 oz. bag of coleslaw mix (try to get angel hair slaw if possible)
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4 cup cilantro minced
2 jalapenos, seeded and thinly sliced  (if you like heat leave some seeds- we like it hot)
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 1/2  teaspoon honey

In a medium bowl mix slaw, bell pepper, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro.  Mix the honey and lime juice together, pour over slaw and mix. 

I’m still finishing the bedroom.

Oh, and I started training for a half marathon.  It’s in 11 weeks.  I’m sort of being forced.  It will be good for me.  I’ll keep telling myself that.

It will be good for me.

See y’all!
