TERRIFIC TUESDAY (MPM & WORK IT WEDNSDAY COMBO!)

multitasking

HEY EVERYBODY!

Welcome welcome to terrific tuesday.  This is what happens when Meal Prep Monday and Work It Wednesday join forces to bring you the most exceptional amount of fun it will blow your brains.

As stated in yesterday’s post… I totally spaced and forgot that every grocery store on planet earth as we know it would be closed on monday for the holiday… SO I decided to share what I made for this week with all of you today AS WELL as tell you all about the horribly wonderful Arms workout I have to share with everyone 🙂 (Just as a side note – I really dislike arms workouts. Anything really that incorporates my wimpy upper body I dislike because of my irrational competitiveness with myself) HOWEVER that said… Upper body strength is just as important as lower body so I motor through it and just want to share it so everyone else with wimpy upper bodies can suffer with me 🙂 SHARE THE MISERY & GET STRONGER 🙂

Back to Meal Prep Monday – I forgot it was a holiday so I’m doing it on tuesday instead edition !!!

This week the city has decided to convert into an oven and I’m very much getting tired of the bipolar weather. But since I didn’t want anything super heavy this week I decided to do an AMAZING chicken salad lettuce wrap and (full credit to my converted gluten free mom for this one) a vegetable pesto chicken pasta 🙂

UNREAL chicken salad lettuce wrap

2 Organic Chicken Breast Cutlets (I just cooked mine in a skillet with a bit of olive oil-put some s&p and dried parsley on them)

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

-1 Celery Stalk chopped

-2 Tablespoons red onion diced

1/3 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt (none of that reduced fat nonsense)

1/3 Cup Sour Cream

(This is the part of the recipe where I can’t handle the amount of time to measure out every spice…so I perform the very scientific art of guesstimation)

-Add a sprinkle/dash/any other inconspicuous measurement name you can think of

-Celery Salt

-Onion Powder

-Garlic Powder

Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

Cumin

-Tarragon

-Dried Parsley

Add a couple spoonfuls into some romaine lettuce and top with a little tomato, salt and pepper 🙂 

Pesto Chicken Pasta with cherry tomatoes

-Vegetable Pasta (could use brown rice too) cooked according to package

3 Chicken Breasts (Cooked in a skillet or in the oven or grilled…think that’s all the options covered)

Handful of Cherry Tomatoes Sliced in half

(FOR THE PESTO)

2 Cups Fresh Basil 

1/2 Cup Fresh Parmesan Reggiano Cheese

1/2 Cup Olive Oil

-1/3 Cup Pine Nuts

3 Medium Cloves of Garlic, minced

(Add the basil and pine nuts & pulse in a food processor, slowly add in olive oil until it’s the consistency you want, add in the cheese and pulse until combined)

Add the cooked & sliced chicken to a pan with cherry tomatoes and cooked pasta, stir in the pesto until it coats everything nicely 🙂 It’s a SUPER light pasta and perfect for summer 🙂
