Healthy eaters often turn to chicken as a means of satisfying their protein needs. Don’t forget about pork – the other white meat! It’s easy to prepare and goes a long way. I made this recipe last week and it was a hit the first and second time around!
I’ve become an avid tennis player in the last year. Some would even say I’m a bit obsessed. Most of those people don’t play sports and haven’t gotten the opportunity to be part of a team and all of the fun that goes along with it. I currently play on two teams and play recreationaly with bunch of lovely ladies that I now call friends.
Tennis is very social. And where there is social, there is food! The home team is responsible for providing a meal and drinks following the game. While this can sometimes be difficult especially during the week, it is a great opportunity to try out new casseroles and other crowd pleasers. Being the “Fit-chick,” I always like to try to make something as healthy as it is yummy. I prepared this casserole at my last home match and I actually got an e-mail from a lady on the other team requesting that I post it. Thanks for the reminder Alyssa!
Being a busy mom, I am constantly in search of recipes that are quick and easy, but still healthy and tasty! There is nothing I love more than make ahead marinated meals that can sit in the fridge for days if life gets in the way and thrown on the stove at the last minute for a quick and healthy meal. That is why I love this recipe! It takes 5 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to cook when you are ready. How is that for simple!
If you are a healthy eater like me, you probably eat a lot of lean meats (unless you are vegetarian of course.) And if you are like me, that probably includes a lot of chicken. It’s the “go to protein!” Well, I don’t know about you, but I get sick of chicken. That’s why I turn to pork or other lean meats whenever possible. Port tenderloin is lean, high in protein, easy to cook and very tasty.
While it’s easy to marinade meats, they can sometimes become tasteless or high in sugar. That’s why I often turn to a good rub. This rub is truly simple, cheap and creates a lovely crust on the meat when grilling. Plus, it packs a kick because it includes one of my all time favorite spices, Chipotle Chili powder.
I recently got back to playing tennis and joined a women’s league to up the challenge. Little did I know that a big part of tennis is social, meaning eating and drinking. The host team brings a meal to treat the visiting team. It’s great fun, but can wreak havoc on your waistline. In an attempt to lighten things up while still bringing something that travels well and can sit until our games are complete I found a casserole that fit the bill. I originally pinned it from pinterest, but decided to tweak it a bit to make it quicker and easier. Everyone loved it and asked me to share so here it is!
