21 Day Fix Chicken Fajitas


I have been struggling to do my meal planning this month.  Between Lacrosse practice, business meetings in the evenings and other activities it seems that we are always in a rush at night time too which is when I need to be doing my meal planning even more.  But I just haven't been getting organized in that department.  

Tonight on the way home from work I was trying to think of a dinner I could make with the chicken I had in the fridge.  Initially it was going to be stir fry but we had limited veggies left in the fridge so on the fly I decided on chicken fajitas.  

We haven't made them in a long time.  Gord and I used to make them very simply with chicken, onion and taco seasoning but I wanted to add more veggies into it and we had a whole bag of peppers so I came up with this simple recipe and made it with my 21 Day fix containers too!  

Chicken Fajita Recipe

2 cups cooked Chicken (2 breast = 2 servings)
1 red pepper
1 small yellow pepper 
1/2 onion
2Tbsp lime juice 
1/2 cup water
Whole wheat wraps

Directions



  • Cook chicken in large frying pan. Using wooden spatula cut up chicken into bite sized pieces. Once browned remove from pan. 


  • Chop peppers and onions while chicken cooks. 
  • Add peppers and onions into the pan to cook until tender. 



  • At this point you can measure your chicken into the red container. I took some cooked plain chicken and made plain chicken and cheese wraps for the boys. I measured out our chicken to make sure we had enough for 1 full red container each. 

  • When peppers are tender add the chicken back into the pan. 
  • Mix water, lime juice and homemade taco seasoning together in small bowl or wet measure. Pour over the chicken and peppers. 
  • Cook everything until the liquid has evaporated. 


  • Top your wrap with Greek yogurt and the fajita filling. 



Your 21 day fix containers for 1 wrap are 1 Red 1 green 1 Yellow. 

Options: 
Add cheese (1 blue container)
Add guacamole (1 blue container) 
Add salsa (free) 


This is a quick and yummy dinner that the whole family can have. I know my kids aren't going to get excited about the peppers and onions so taking the plain chicken out before adding it into the peppers and taco seasoning allowed me to make them a simple chicken cheese wrap. 

Or you could serve the fajita filling over brown rice instead of a wrap! There are lots of options.

Toss the Muffin Top






Spring is finally here! The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and those spring and summer clothes seem to be. . . smaller. While the warmer weather and the reemergence of the sun makes us all happier, it also makes it harder for you to hide that muffin top underneath sweaters and jackets.
Unfortunately, your stomach is often one of the first places you gain weight and one of the last places you’ll lose it. Don't we all know it!  Belly fat is not only bad for the beach; it’s downright dangerous. A study published in the American Journal of Hypertension revealed that “A larger waist measurement predicts the development of high blood pressure, regardless of total body fat.” Other studies have found that visceral stomach fat (versus the subcutaneous fat that you can pinch) is linked to higher total cholesterol, insulin resistance, colorectal cancer, and diabetes. It’s time to get serious about losing the spare tire around your waist—not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for your long-term health. And with just a few more weeks until beach season is here, there’s no better time to start shredding that fat so that you can reveal a flat, defined, sexy stomach. Or at least feel confident in that swimsuit!
So what to do?  

Healthy Diet

A healthy diet—full of fresh fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and healthy fats (like avocado and olive oil)—is critical to getting a flat stomach. Ever heard the phrase “your abs are made in the kitchen”? It’s true!! 
Don't know where to start or need a push?  Join one of my Free 5 Day clean eating groups or have the meal plan emailed to you by clicking here. 
My Favorite meal plan has to be the 21 Day fix however, it's simple clean eating with portion control containers to help you know how much of each category you should be consuming.  It takes the guess work out of portion control without any weighting, calorie counting or measuring!  This is the program I'll be following in these next weeks leading up to Summer. You can join me by checking out my 21 Day Fix bootcamp!

Ab-Specific exercises

If seeing a flat stomach comes down to reducing your body fat through healthy diet and exercise, then why bother doing ab-specific exercises? One good reason is that “ab exercises” also strengthen your core, and a strong core can improve your posture and make you less prone to injury. Another is that the abs—like your biceps—are muscles and strengthening them is important. Doing exercises that target these will strengthen them so they appear defined when your body fat percentage is low enough for them to be visible. With that in mind, pop by and check out my Abs and Arms Challenge!  It's Free and Fun!

For extra support in achieving that toned stomach, follow these 5 gut-busting tips:
1. Ditch the Refined Sugar
It may look good and taste good, but refined carbohydrates and sugars wreak havoc on your midsection. It’s OK to have a treat once in a while, but try to keep these waistline killers to a minimum.
2. Stand Up Straight
The more you slouch, the more your stomach pooches. According to WebMD, you should “align your ears over your shoulders, shoulders over hips, hips over knees, and knees over ankles. Keep the fronts of the shoulders open like a shirt on a hanger. Draw your navel to your spine and keep your weight even on the balls and heels.” This posture will help you look much leaner and, over time, this isometric contraction of your abs will help strengthen them.
3. HIIT Training
Engage in High Intensity Interval Training (also known as HIIT) and you can see more results in less time! This type of exercise, done in short bursts with brief recovery periods between sets, can help spike your metabolism so you burn calories for hours after you’re done working out. I personally love Insanity Max: 30 workouts and 21 Day fix Extreme for my high Intensity workouts!  
4. Sleep
Getting the right amount of shut-eye can help you get the flat tummy of your dreams. When you skimp on shut-eye, your body undergoes physiological stress, which causes your body to store fat. Strive to get 8 or more hours every single night. I for sure need to work on this myself.  6 1/2 - 7 hours a night is my average so says my fitbit so I better get to bed earlier if I want those abs this summer!
5. Reduce Stress
Stress can be good or bad depending on how we deal with it. We need stress to change and progress, but too much of it can cause our bodies to enter a “fight-or-flight” biochemical process. This can make our bodies store fuel, slow down metabolism, and dump out chemicals [such as the stress hormone cortisol] which are more likely to cause . . . obesity in the abdominal region. When we’re stressed, we also tend to reach for comfort foods and find reasons to eat out more frequently. If you lower your stress levels (through time management, yoga, meditation), you won’t need to self-medicate with food and your hormone levels will be much healthier.

I've got a goal for the summer, one that I've been struggling to achieve and that's to have a flatter more toned stomach this summer!  Who wants to join me this spring to feel more confident and healthier than any other summer?  

Comment below or email me I want to hear from you about your goals!

Spinach Artichoke Chicken



This is one 21 Day fix meal that will satisfy your taste buds and to me feels like a true comfort food!  You can serve it with brown rice or enjoy it on its own.  The choice is yours ! 

I got the inspiration for this dinner when I made my One Pot Spinach Dip for my husbands work potluck last week.  It is so good, but I wondered if I could make something that tasted just as good but was on the 21 day fix!  I got my ingredients and containers out and go to making and dang I did it!  

Let me know how you liked it by commenting below!


Spinach Artichoke Chicken

21 Day Fix Containers: 1 Green 1 Red 1 Blue


Ingredients

1 1/2 green containers Artichoke hearts chopped
1 1/2 green containers spinach chopped
1 red container Greek yogurt
1 blue container cheese
1 blue container Parmesan cheese
1 blue container goat cheese
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Sea salt and pepper to taste
3 chicken breasts


Instructions


  1. In a casserole dish, bake chicken at 350 for 15 minutes seasoned with sea salt and pepper. 
  2. While chicken is baking, make the topping. 
  3. Combine 1 1/2 Green Containers of chopped artichoke hearts and baby Spinach into a medium sized bowl. 
  4. Add in 1 Red container of greek yogurt and 1 Blue container each of White Cheddar cheese, parmesan and goat cheese. 
  5. Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Stir to combine or for a more smooth saucy like texture you can blend in a food processor.  
  6. When Chicken has cooked for 15 minutes remove from the oven and top with the Spinach Artichoke topping.  
  7. Bake until golden brown and chicken is cooked through. Approx 25 minutes. 

Before I blended it in the
food processor.
 

I served ours on top of one yellow container of brown rice but if you are out of yellow containers for the day simply enjoy the chicken and sauce on it's own!  

How to Create a 21 Day Fix Meal Plan


The 21 Day Fix is my favorite Beachbody program.  The nutrition plan is so simple, and the portion-controlled container system takes the guess workout out of it. I highly encourage all of my own Beachbody clients to do this program before starting any other.  It allows them to gain a good understanding of how to eat clean and control portion sizes, without the madness of counting calories.  I just won't do Calorie counting, it turns people crazy I tell ya!  

Here are my steps for creating a 21 Day Fix Meal plan.


1) Print off a 21 Day fix Shopping Sheet and 21 Day fix tally sheet


2)  Refer to your master list of clean eating recipes.  

You can find lots of great clean eating and 21 Day Fix recipes online. You’ll refer to your list over and over again, so save it somewhere that is easy to access.  I personally have a Pinterest Board for the 21 Day fix as well as a board for clean eating recipes which saves all the recipes I find online so they are easy to access from my phone.  
Don’t forget to check out all the 21 Day Fix Recipes I’ve posted here on Crystal P Fitness and Food.  I add new ones every week.  

3)  Once you have printed off your Daily Tally sheet, mark off containers as you add things to your list.  The colored boxes represent the color and number of containers for each calorie level.  As you add something to your daily meal plan, cross off the appropriate box. 

These Daily Tally Sheets I created have blown up on Pinterest!  I find them super helpful in planning and keeping track of my containers each day!  You can either print them off for each day or use a page protector and a dry eraser marker and use the same one over and over again!  

Click below on your Calorie Range for the sheet to Print off!

1200 - 1499 Calorie Range Daily Tally Sheet
1500-1799 Calorie Range Daily Tally Sheet
1800-2099 Calorie Range Daily Tally Sheet
2100-2300 Calorie Range Daily Tally Sheet

You can also use a weekly calendar to keep track of your meals for the whole week or a white board to write down your meals for the whole week and then use the daily tally sheet to keep track of your containers through the day.  Do what works for you. 



4)  Start planning the easiest meals first.
For most, that will be breakfast and snacks.  A lot of people usually eat the same thing for breakfast or switch between a few options.  Fill in those slots first.

5)  Next, plan for dinner.

This is where it’s fun to get creative and add in some new recipes.  Often you will have leftovers that you can use to put in some of the lunch slots.  If you want, you can even plan to have leftovers one night during the week.  Plan crockpot meals on days when you know you don’t have much time or will be away from home most the day. 

6)  Plan lunch using leftovers or salad.

Lunch is a great time to make a great big salad and add any leftover protein from the night before, or simply heat up leftovers.  
Here are some great Salad recipes that I have pinned on pinterest.
I like to prepare extra protein at dinner time to use in my salad the next day for lunch.   

My top TIPS!

  • Spread your nutrients throughout the day.
  • Try to have your carbs earlier in the day.
  • Avoid eating fruit or carbs alone.  Make sure you add a fat or protein to keep your blood sugar stable.
  • Don’t stress too much about small amounts of some ingredient in casseroles, soups, etc.  
  • To figure out the serving size, measure the ingredients in your containers as you add them to a recipe.
  • Start a recipe binder or Pinterest board to save recipes you want to try and one for those you’ve tried and know you love.
  • Make a list of your favorite things for breakfast and snacks to make planning easier.

Ok not the best photo of this brownie but I'm telling you it's delicious! I promise you that.  And this brownie isn't any old brownie it's a DARK Chocolate brownie and boy is it!  I used a combination of recipes I found on different blogs (all which had much better photos than I do of their brownies) and made it my own.  This is the type of brownie that doesn't kid around, you want a hot cup of tea with this bad boy!  

But you know what's awesome about this brownie?  It can be made in no time!  And it's considered clean/real food because the ingredients are all pretty healthy for ya!  Gotta like that!


Dark Chocolate Whole Wheat Brownie Recipe

3 to 4 eggs
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 8X8 inch square glass baking dish with oil or butter.

  5. Pour the batter into the baking dish and bake for 16 - 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 
  6. Cool and Top with Dark Chocolate Frosting
  7. Eat or store in an air-tight container at room temperature - enjoy!

Thursday Fit Challenge - PLIE in 1st and 2nd Position


Thursday Fit Challenge: Plie in 1st and 2nd Position

Let's do a little Barre move today to Tone the inner and outer thighs, glutes, and waist. I used to do Ballet as a child and teen and I honestly had no idea what a great workout it actually was!  Back to doing some Barre moves to tone up my legs for the summer.  



PLIE IN FIRST POSITION
1. Begin standing in first position, legs turned out from the thigh bone, heels together, inner thighs pressed together. (Most people force a turn-out. To make sure you do not, align your second toe with the turn out of your knee.) Arms form an oval in front of the body.

2. Lift the belly and lengthen the spine upward, as you bend the knees and slowly lower the hips four inches from your heels. Keep the hips over the heels, tailbone drawn down.

2. Press through the heels, draw the inner thighs together and engage the glutes to return to standing. If you need balance assistance, hold on to the back of a chair or increase the stability challenge. Repeat 10 plies


PLIE IN SECOND POSITION

1. Step the feet a bit wider than the hips and turn out from the hips. Arms form an oval in front of the body.

2. Lift the belly and bend knees to lower the hips almost parallel with knees. Keeps hips below shoulders, spine long.

2. Press into the heels, draw inner thighs together and engage the glutes to return to standing

Tarragon Chicken dinner




I found this recipe on the William Sanoma site about 5 years ago and at the time I'd never tried the popular french herb Tarragon.  It is so simple with a creamy and flavourful Tarragon sauce that is made right in the pan.  I just purchased a Tarragon plant for my garden this weekend and I plan on using it lots this summer!  In the past years I've purchased the herb and kept it in the kitchen but this year I've set aside a small section of my garden for herbs and I planted my precious French Tarragon there!  Hopefully it grows nice and big so I can enjoy lots of dishes with this lovely herb!  I'd really like to try some new recipes that use Tarragon so if you have any to share please comment below and let me know!


Tarragon from the garden

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 3 Tbs. chopped shallot
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1⁄2 cup 1/2 and 1/2 cream
  • Fresh lemon juice, to taste (optional)
  • Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley for garnish

Directions:

Trim any excess fat from the chicken. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels. One at a time, place a chicken breast half between 2 sheets of waxed paper or plastic wrap. Using a rolling pin, flatten to an even thickness of about 1⁄2 inch.

In a large sauté pan or fry pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter with the olive oil. When hot, add the chicken, season with salt and pepper and sauté gently, turning once, until the chicken is golden and opaque throughout and the juices run clear when the meat is pierced with a knife, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a warmed plate and keep warm.
Pour off any excess fat from the pan and place the pan over medium-low heat. Add the shallot and sauté, stirring, until translucent, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the tarragon and cream, increase the heat to medium and stir with a wooden spoon, scraping up any browned bits from the pan bottom and blending well. Cook, stirring, until bubbling and thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. 
Season with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. Return the chicken to the pan and turn each breast several times in the sauce until well coated and hot. Transfer the chicken to a warmed serving plate or individual plates and spoon the remaining sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.

You will stream the workout for FREE via On Demand and complete whichever workout you prefer then cast your vote for the workout you completed.  At the end of the week I will tally up the votes and the top 5 workouts will go head to head with another 5 workouts the following week! The group will run for 3 weeks.   {{You will simply need to complete one workout each day and cast your vote!}}

4. There will be small challenges throughout the week with the chance to win PRIZES!
