Baked AGAVE LEMON Chicken

Seriously, this was the week of “Mom of the Year” in the kitchen! I am instantly IN LOVE with this recipe and it will probably be a weekly meal in my house… Stu leaves for tour Friday, so he can’t complain hahaha! *** ALSO, just a disclosure, I ran out of brown rice and quinoa, so I used white rice — I strongly suggest using brown rice over white ANY day of the week! *** This is 100% gluten free and Celiac approved! ūüėČ INGREDIENTS: Juice and zest of 1 large lemon (3 tablespoons juice) 3¬†tablespoons¬†agave 2¬†teaspoons¬†finely chopped garlic 1 1/2¬†teaspoons¬†ground cumin 1¬†teaspoon¬†dried oregano 1/2¬†cup¬†plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2 chicken breasts Salt and freshly ground pepper directions In a medium bowl, mix¬†together the lemon juice and zest, agave, garlic, cumin, oregano and 1/2 cup of the olive oil. Place the chicken breasts in a glass dish that holds them snugly in a single layer and add the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for at least 1 –¬†2 hours in the refrigerator, turning over the chicken occasionally. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees & Line a baking sheet with foil. Bake until cooked through and the juices run clear, about 35¬†minutes. ZUCCHINI:¬†This is literally just 1 tsp coconut oil, washed and sliced zucchini, himalayan salt to taste, fresh ground pepper to taste all stir fried together in a skillet on medium-high heat for 7-8 minutes!

TurboFire 5 Day Inferno Plan Day 1

Posted by on Nov 13, 2011 in Breakfast, Dinner, Krystal, Lunch, Nutrition, Shakeology

I decided I was going to log my progress with the 5 Day Inferno Plan from the TurboFire workouts! I have done TurboFire, had amazing results, but never did the 5 day menu plan that has allowed people to lose 10 pounds and 10 inches within 5 DAYS!!!! I am starting on Sunday, instead of Monday bc this Friday I have a function to go to and it wont be feasible for me to do the last day of the plan on a Friday, so Thursday is my last day – PLUS Thanksgiving festivities start the next week and I want to be looking thin and lean! – Hey who doesnt!!?!?? Starting weight: 126.6 Today has been great. I feel like I have a ton of energy and I didnt feel hungry all day or anything like that. I drank about 60oz of water and my workout was still up beat and it was an overall awesome first day to the inferno plan! I forgot to take a pic of my breakfast, but it was very good and filling! I didn’t feel hungry again until my snack at 11am. I have never had turkey bacon until today and I LOVED it, I think I can safely say I can add bacon back into my diet – Turkey Bacon that is Lunch was SOOOO good! Tuna Salad! Usually I put pickles in my tuna, but it wasnt on the menu, I was a little bummed, but the chopped celery put the crunch in it that I needed and I hardly noticed. 3 cups of mixed greens, 4oz of tuna and iced tea sweetened with stevia was a perfect lunch. Snack #2 was a chocolate Shakeology w/ Almond Butter, 12oz of water and ice! This will always be a favorite meal for me because it is more like a dessert than a snack or meal. Dinner was probably the best chicken I have ever made! I am not a Betty Crocker or some cooking/baking expert FYI Tonight was chicken w/ a honey dijon mix I made, grilled on the George Foreman and then steamed Parmesan Garlic Broccoli. My kids loved it, I loved it and was very full by the time I finished. I drank 12oz of water with a 1/2 package of Crystal Light Peach Tea poured in the water.¬† Share...
