As promised each week's recipe will come with a nutritional tip. Since this weeks recipe is so simple I thought Id explain why its necessary to have a "go to" recipe for fat loss and meal prep success.
Being Wonder Woman has its ups and downs. Sure you are loved and adored from every angle of the nation, but those smiles and verbal thank you's dont put dinner on the table. Lets face it... parenting by day and fighting crime at night causes our mortal form to grow weak, needing constant sustenance, but leaving little to no time for meal prep.
When meals are not easily accessible and ready to eat then we tend to make bad decisions or deviate from our health and nutritional goals. Over the past few years I have created a few recipes that are quick, simple and I never get sick of eating. Taco Chicken has to be my #1 though. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare. It cooks all day while I adult and parent. Its ready to eat by super time, and you have tons left over to portion out for the rest of the week. Having these meals ready to eat will keep you on track with your health goals.
Chicken breast (I add enough to fill my crock pot)
Taco seasoning- roughly 1/4 cup (I buy it in bulk at Costco)
Salsa or diced tomatoes (about 1 cup or can of organic tomatoes)
2 to 3 tablespoon of heart healthy oil
How to prepare:
Put the chicken in the crock pot.
Mix together the seasoning, salsa and oil and pour over chicken.
Cook on low until chicken shreds with a fork.
My carb source for this meal is brown rice that I prepare in my rice cooker. I like my rice to have a more fiesta feel so I cook it in chicken broth and add taco seasoning and salsa. I let the rice sit in the cooker all day while the chicken slow cooks in the crock pot. Ive never had issues with this method.
I portion out all my meals with just the rice and chicken. When I go to reheat them in the microwave I add more salsa and avocado if I have it.
If you are not on a fat loss meal plan then you can use white or yellow rice and also sprinkle a tiny bit of shredded cheese on to your meal.
This meal is super healthy and fits a fat loss diet. It takes very little time to prep and you can do all the things you need to do while its cooking. So yes, you can have it all.
