For the last month we have been eating clean for the good majority of all of our meals. This is a goal I set for myself and was concerned about implementing it into our daily routine for the family as well. Greg has been 100% on board, but I am still working on getting creative enough to keep Shane and Nathan interested. We are doing great with fruits, and my dinner meals, but I am still struggling with lunches for them.
I will say that grocery shopping is fast and easy now that I spend most of my trip in the produce section. The first week was a little tough and I felt like all we were eating was grilled chicken for dinner, but I have since found some wonderful recipe sources and now it’s just fun! I plan my meals Sunday morning, bulk up on proteins and produce Sunday evening, and have meals planned for the whole week. It keeps things organized and helps make this transition easier on all of us when I’m not frazzled over what to make for dinner.
When we are having a crazy day, and I need a quick “go-to” meal this is one of my favorites. Enjoy!!
CLEAN EATING CHICKEN FAJITAS
1 large red bell pepper, sliced thin lengthwise
1 large green bell pepper, sliced thin lengthwise
1 large orange bell pepper, sliced thin lengthwise
5 raw, boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced thin lengthwise
1 medium yellow onion, slice thin
1 clove garlic minced
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp, dried oregano
1 tbsp. onion powder
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. ground cumin
1 tbsp. olive oil
Using a griddle pan, heat on medium-high and add olive oil. Grill chicken for a few minutes on each side and then add peppers, onions and garlic. About halfway through sprinkle all your spices on top. Cook for about 15 minutes until everything is cooked through. And that’s it…how easy was that?
I like to serve mine as is and put a scoop of “guacamole” on top (I will share how I make that below). For Nathan and Greg I put on whole wheat tortillas (you can also add cheese if you would like). For Shane I just cut everything into bite sized pieces. Everyone enjoys this one so this is a weekly winner in our household!
As for the Guacamole I just cut open a ripe avocado, put into a bowl with some fresh lime juice and a spoonful of organic salsa and mush it all together. (Saving a slice or two of avocado for Shane without the salsa in it since it’s a little spicy).
That’s all! Hope you enjoy!!
