I have been blessed to find an amazing nutrition specialist, more so HEALTH specialist to help me tackle my hormone and blood sugar levels. Backing up, I have suffered from insomnia for the better part of my life. But when I was referred to a specialist by my awesomest friend Jen, I couldn’t say no…(Thanks Jared!!!)
I’ve been talking and working with him for about a week now, and my official plan starts tomorrow.
Today was my rest day, so I headed to the store to buy all organic goods, and man did Sophia and I have fun.
I came home, washed and prepped everything and got my meals ready for tomorrow.
Here is a few things I purchased…
After prepping food, I made my meals for tomorrow. Breakfast will be 3 hard boiled eggs and a piece of organic sausage. My snack is a cup of strawberries, black berries, and raspberries. Lunch I hit a home run, making up my own recipe for chili-lime, and garlic chicken. SOOO easy by the way.
I minced a handful of cloves of garlic first…
I then zested 1 lime, and rolled it firmly on the cutting board so that when I cut into it the maximum amount of juice would be dispelled.
Next I added the zest/juice of one lime, the garlic, and a couple table spoons of chili powder to an 1/8 or so of a cup of EVOO. Just a touch of kosher salt and pepper was added, then mixed thoroughly. Then add 4-6 chicken thighs to the mixture and let marinate for at least 30 minutes. Brown in a saute’ pan, and YUM! This is being served of a salad of baby greens and avocado for lunch tomorrow!!
And yes, I am having my one LAST glass of red wine tonight. (Jared, forgive me!)
May you all have a blessed week! I know that my washing machine being fixed is a bonus, but living a healthy life style is even better!!!

looks yummy…I can't believe how much better I feel when sugar is not a main part of my diet…then, when I eat some (like jelly beans) I crave, crave, crave it and I act weird. 😉 Probably like a junkie who needs his fix…I will look for anything to relieve my sweet tooth. Crazy…Way to go on the healthy purchases…so smart!
I completely crashed on Monday without jelly beans. I had to find sugar..I have a problem..I want to try that chicken recipe.
Sweet tooth? I freeze Grapefruit juice, and eat it with a spoon like frozen ice. Small 4 oz cups are great. Takes a while to eat it, and relieves my cravings.My problem, Chelle, is I DONT prep. I need to start doing that. I waste so much fresh produce by not prepping. And, I DETEST waste. I feel like a poor steward of God's bounty. Thanks for the idea.
Sounds delicious! I'm excited for you!
Sounds like heaven to me, I love avo and I love chicken salad 🙂
I am blessed to NOT have a sweet tooth at all…but do enjoy a piece of Dove chocolate every now and then! HEHE!
Prepping is key. Example, as I made my dinner tonight, I also was making my lunch for tomorrow! I don't have a sweet tooth thankfully, but thanks for the tip!!!!
Thanks, Bobbi!!! Kids are on board too (for the most part) so we're excited!
hehe!! You should try it, it's amazing!
Thanks! I was amazed at how delicious it is!
