I marinated and grilled some boneless, skinless chicken breasts over the weekend and I was playing with ideas for what to do with the leftovers. This turned out fantastically and I thought I should share. I think it could easily be converted to vegetarian by using vegetable broth and swapping the chicken for tofu or avocado. I don’t think this would result in much of a change for points. Enjoy!!!

Found this on skinnytaste.com and I’m definitely trying it… Looks like a great way to use the fresh veggies from your garden, you could definitely add bell peppers to the salad… Enjoy 🙂

I bought several sizes of cork board and dry-erase board; found pictures and quotes that I am inspired by; and finally put up my race bibs and medals. This is the new view from my elliptical and treadmill… YAY! I think it turned out great…
I saw this on Skinny Taste and thought it looked great… I might make it for a tailgate this weekend 🙂
Need a macaroni salad to bring to your next BBQ without tons of fat and calories? Look no further!
This is the perfect summer pasta salad loaded with fresh summer tomatoes and zucchini tossed in a light creamy dressing. I even snuck in some Greek yogurt for added creaminess but with all the other flavors you won’t know it’s there. Because there are so many wonderful vegetables in this salad, the portions are a decent size and pairs perfectly with any grilled meats and burgers.
This makes enough for a large gathering, perfect for your Fourth of July parties but if you want to make this for a smaller group you can simply halve the recipe as I did here.
This is not a workout for beginners. If you are not used to Jillian or some other form of concentrated workout, I suggest you start with 30 Day Shred or Ripped in 30. I am currently doing level 1 and will update my review when I move to level 2.
Jillian strays from her typical 3-2-1 format (3 minutes cardio, 2 minutes strength, 1 minute abs), in the ab-centered workout. She starts with a 4 minute dynamic warm-up, which moves quickly. The “meat” of the workout is about 24 minutes long and consists of several sequences of exercises; each repeated once before moving on. Her mix of crunches, planks, lunges, stretches and holds; combined with cardio, keeps you moving and helps hold your attention. As with her other workouts, she has one team member doing more advanced modifications and one team member doing beginner modifications. There are no “rests” in this workout, I suggest keeping water near you so you can take a sip between exercises. Jillian wraps up with a few cool down stretches and you’re done.
I appreciate her “quick and dirty” routines, they have been very effective for me. It’s nice to find a good workout that I can fit into my morning routine without an enormous time commitment.
I love it when a new motivational tool falls in my lap…
One of my best friends, Jessica, stopped over last night to ask me if I would be a bridesmaid in her wedding… 🙂
I am so excited to share this wonderful day with her… and now, we can SWEAT FOR THE DRESS together!!!!
(I am going to get matching tank tops for us, one saying November Bride and the other saying November Bridesmaid… lol)
This looks fantastic. I realize that I need to invest in an indoor grilling pan, so I don’t have to rely on the cooperation of the weather to enjoy such wonderful meals. Though, nothing compares to the taste of something cooked on a charcoal grill… 🙂 Enjoy!!!
