Weekly Recap and Recipe of the Week

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I had a pretty good weekend. Started to get my voice back on Saturday morning and it is not 100% back to normal but it is almost there! Yeah!

I had a great workout yesterday - great from a standpoint of it felt so good to hit it again! Although I had worked out a few times this week, Saturday was the first workout that had some intensity to it. My endorphins were super high when I finished up. I think I even annoyed the DH.

Going to start dropping recipes in weekly for you guys as I do love to find healthy ways to cook. And I will try to take a picture of the recipe and someday even do a VLOG during food prep! :)

Healthy Buffalo Chicken Salad
Half a bag of 50/50 Salad Mix
4 oz. shredded chicken breast (I usually grill mine and cut off any excess fat and then tear it up into pieces)
1/4 cup fat free feta cheese
1 TBS bacon bits
1 TBS blue cheese dressing
1 tsp Frank's Red Hot Sauce

Put salad greens, bacon bits, feta and blue cheese dressing into a large Tupperware container or a pot with a lid and shake vigorously until dressing covers greens.

Put chicken is a smaller container with the Franks Red Hot Sauce and shake vigorously.

Top salad with chicken and wa-la! Top with some whole grain croutons if you want some additional carbs. Hands down my favorite salad EVER. I eat it once a week at least.

Approximate value: 300 calories - 30 to 35 grams protein, 11 grams fat and roughly 10-15 grams carbs. And pretty yummy in my opinion! :)
