My Weekly Staple
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 minute
Of all the healthy lunch options there are available, this recipe for Grilled Chicken Fajitas is by far my favorite. It packs a whopping 27 grams of protein, and contains only a moderate amount of carbs and fat.
If there is a such thing as a staple in your weight loss or mass gain diet, then this is it!
1 Low Carb, High Fiber Tortilla Shell
3oz. Grilled Chicken Breast
2Tbsp Ortega or other Low Calorie Taco Sauce
Pinch Chopped or Shredded Lettuce
Pinch Shredded Cheese
Pinch Diced Tomato.
Optional: Sour Cream, Pinto Beans, Grilled Onions, Green Peppers
Because I eat this meal so often, I normally prep everything at the beginning of the week. This way all I have to each day is heat up the chicken and I’m ready to go!
Beginning of the Week
- Chop Lettuce
- Dice Tomatoes
- Bake or Grill all Chicken Breasts
When You’re Ready to Eat
- Heat Chicken for 45 seconds in the Microwave (or heat in a skillet)
- Place the Desired Amount of Chicken, Lettuce, Tomatoes, and Taco Sauce onto Tortilla Shell
- Repeat Each Day
- Stare at Yourself in the Mirror and Notice how RIPPED Your Abs Are!
Why I Like it So Much
Let’s face it, all of the recipes you find for grilled chicken fajitas on other websites dedicated solely to food preparation will probably taste a bit better than this one; but at what cost? Do a quick search online and you will see that the average cooking time for these recipes is about 30 minutes! Now I don’t know about you, but with my crazy lifestyle of going to work, working out, taking care of 3 kids, and trying to keep my marriage the way it should be, I barely have 5 minutes to spare for lunch … let alone 30. Not only is the recipe above healthy and delicious, but it also allows me to fuel my body with minimal preparation time! This way I can spend much more time on things that matter most. In the end, I’ll be a better father, a better husband, and I’ll look amazing next time I’m standing next to Emeril Lagasse on the beach!
