Be Gone Boring Chicken! Hello: Weight Loss!

 

In our house we are trying to make healthy eating choices this month. But, with my lack of self-discipline and both working 40+ hours a week we are really struggling! Also there are things like cookies and cupcakes that are constantly calling my name…

Getting Bikini Ready:

I want to be able to lose a little weight before my friend’s wedding at the end of the month. We are also planning a vacation in June so I’d like to be bikini ready before then. All that being said, we have been eating a whole lot of chicken lately. I’m getting so bored of chicken, so I set out to find some yummy chicken recipes that will make my tummy and my waistline happy.

Pineapple Chicken Quinoa Salad

I’m immediately drawn to recipes that are easy, or that use some of our weekly staples anyway. In our house we eat a ton of quinoa and so this recipe over at Layers of Happiness which combines my love of quinoa with a sweetly satisfying pineapple addition made me super happy. Jen and Emily have a bazillion more yummy looking dishes I want to test drive too! I can’t wait to try this one. And, it only takes about 20 minutes to make which is my kind of meal! This looks perfect for lunches!

Hummus Crusted Chicken

Then I stumbled across Sara’s blog which details her weight loss journey and her healthy lifestyle choices. I love this hummus crusted chicken idea, and although she chooses to make her own hummus in the recipe, for ease of weeknight meal prep I will most likely use the hummus we already have in the fridge. Yum!

Buffalo Chicken Chili

Lastly, this week I’m going to give this Buffalo Chicken Chili a try. Tammy at Organize Yourself Skinny makes it sound so easy and so yummy! She’s also got a bunch of other ideas, tips and recipes for healthy living and is super inspirational!

I’m going to work on adapting it so that I can turn it into a Crockpot Recipe instead of one that I have to prepare when I get home from work. Although I do like the idea of making it ahead and turning it into a freezer meal as well.
