This weekend was huge in the B household. Not because we did anything uber exciting but we set 2 new records for ourselves.
1. We managed to eat e.v.e.r.y. meal at home this weekend, with the exception of Sunday brunch courtesy of my parents.
2. We went to the gym every day this weekend. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. AND on top of that, I had 2 of the best workouts ever.
Both of these things never, ever happen. You see we live within a 2-mile radius of at least 50 amazing, non-chain restaurants and we can walk 2-3 blocks in any direction to at least 20 or so of these. Therefore eating out is quite a temptation and normality for our lifestyle.
We've decided that in preparation for Greece we're going to eat out less frequently (with the exception of restaurant week) and hit the gym extra hard and watch even more so what we eat. Below are some of the yummy, but healthy, things we noshed on this weekend.
Yum, yum, yum! These have become regular weekly meals in our house because 1. they're healthy and 2. they're quick and easy. The original recipe came from Gina and is actually a Weight Watchers-Friendly recipe. Trust me, you'd never know it. We've tweaked it a bit for our liking.
Cilantro & Lime Shrimp, brown rice, black beans, cilantro, fresh pineapple, tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, salsa = low-fat, high protein taco!
avocado instead of guacamole
brown rice instead of white rice
whole wheat tortillas instead of flour tortillas
Homemade Mozzarella, Proscuitto & Tomato Pizza
This recipe originated from VA Belle and it is delicious, I'm so glad she shared. The best part is that we saved time by using T. Joe's whole wheat pizza dough.
