Nutrition Tip-Fajitas!


Through my years of CrossFit and clean eating, this recipe is by far the my absolute favorite! I found this in 2010 on the Whole 9 website. Give it a try!

STEAL THIS MEAL: THE BEST CHICKEN FAJITAS YOU’LL EVER EAT

Steal This Meal:  The Best Chicken Fajitas Ever (Serves 4)

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 – 2 lbs. of “pastured” organic chicken breast
  • 2-3 ripe avocado (sliced into quarters)
  • 1 red bell pepper (sliced into strips)
  • 1 orange bell pepper (sliced into strips)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper (sliced into strips)
  • 1 large sweet onion (sliced into strips)
  • 2 heads of Bibb or Butter lettuce
  • Cumin, chili powder, freshly ground black pepper (liberal amounts of each)
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro (chopped)

Directions:

  • Trim and pound chicken with a meat tenderizer until all slices are a consistent thickness.
  • Heat 1-2 tbsp of coconut oil in a pan (medium-high heat).
  • Once the oil is hot, mix spices together and sprinkle half directly into the pan.
  • Throw chicken on top of the spices, and sprinkle the other half of the spice mixture on top of the chicken.
  • Allow each side to blacken and sear (about 1 minute) before flipping.
  • When chicken is done, remove from pan and transfer to cutting board to slice into strips.
  • In the same hot pan (with leftover spices), sauté the peppers and onions.
  • Use the spatula to scrape blackened spices off the bottom of the pan, stir them right in with the veggies.
  • When pepper and onion mixture is cooked to desired tenderness (3-5 minutes), remove from pan and transfer to serving dish.
  • Fill the bottom of your plate with large leafs of lettuce.  Pile hot peppers and onion on top, surround with jicama, avocado and mango.
  • Drop the chicken on top of the whole glorious pile, top with freshly chopped cilantro.

“What would you do if you couldn’t fail?”


“What would you do if you couldn’t fail?”

This is a very inspiring quote. Basically it says, “Don’t let fear stop you”

But why would you never want to fail?
Without failure there are no victories. It is what happens when you push yourself past your limits of competency. This is the the place where adaptation begins. We must acknowledge our failures and learn from them. Through failure we gain experience that forces us to work harder. Awareness and hard work is what is vital to progress.

If you plan to pick up heavy weight, you must be prepared to drop heavy weight.
This is true for life as well as training.
When we test our limits and succeed, we find out what we are capable of. These are the life victories or PR’s that nourish us.
When we reach beyond or limits we find out what we’re made of.
These are the failures that fuel us.

Don’t let fear stop you.
