I usually pack my lunch, but sometimes on Fridays Erin and I split a southwest chicken chopped salad.. our favorite! It's so good!! And I don't feel TOO guilty since we split it (half a serving is shown below.. they are normally huge!)
Since starting this lifestyle change, Matt and I have really enjoyed cooking a "special" meal once a week. We each make something different, like we would have at a restaurant. Tonight I had grilled shrimp and quinoa and it was so good!
The recipe for the spicy garlic shrimp is from HERE. I made up the quinoa "recipe" and it turned out really good. Here is what is in it:
- Quinoa (cook per package directions)
- Chopped cilantro (I can't get enough of cilantro)
- Chopped scallions
- Sriracha sauce
- Juice of half a lime
- Feta Cheese
I just mixed it all together and it turned out wonderful!
Matt made himself chicken tacos with fresh grilled corn off the cob. His chicken tacos looked really good, I told him to save me some for leftovers :) (except I don't particularly like corn.. I'd use black beans instead).
I was really craving dessert, so I chopped up a banana, sprinkled cinnamon on it and drizzled in honey. You guys... it was GOOD. Really really good. And I don't feel guilty about it!
