Dinner is served…


I wanted something a bit different today. I took to Pinterest to find a new chicken idea.

Balsamic Chicken…hooray!!

Super easy to make, but the glaze made a mess of my cast iron pan. Scrub, scrub, SCRRRRUUBBB!

Oh and those zucchini noodles, or zoodles, are a tasty edition. Just a tad of minced garlic in the pan and toss over medium heat. Voila!

Making healthier choices is easier when you are prepared. I’m ready for tomorrow; lunch and gym bag are packed!

One day at a time!
