What's For Dinner?

Hmm...good question.

As I am washing dishes from breakfast, folding dry laundry, sorting dirty clothes, and frantically trying to get the house in a state of organization after a hectic day of work, I am asking myself this question.

Luckily, Mom saves the day again.

"I wanted to call and tell you what's on my stove right now so you can replicate!"

Music to my ears!  With the exception of a few ingredient variations, I have a 5 star meal in the works.  I quickly clean my sweet potatoes and lay out my skillets, pots and other utensils before rushing off to the gym for a quick (30 minute) workout.

This blog is living proof that you can cook healthy meals, have a family, keep a job, and exercise all in one day!


Saute onions, red peppers, sweet potatoes, eggplant and mushrooms in olive oil with some seasonings (I used Mexican flavors).  Add about a cup of low fat/low sodium chicken broth and simmer.  While that's simmering, cook some quinoa in chicken broth or water.  Throw the soft veggies on top of the fluffed quinoa, sprinkle with fresh parmesan, and pair with fresh avocado and crusty bread.

YUM.

Add chicken or pork if that's up your alley!

So...what's for dinner??

Combine with a quick workout on a cold day...get to the gym and go go go for 30 minutes.  Head to the weight room and warm up with 3 sets of 20 reps with biceps, shoulders, and legs (squats, lunges).  Next, use a weight resistance machine to target triceps and lats.  Next, head to a mat and alternate abdominal and back exercises.  Finally, find a flat surface and alternate push-ups with leg stretches.  Go home and fix that dinner!
