New Recipe!

24 Jul

Yummy lettuce wraps adapted from

  • ½ cup chopped raw onion
  • 1 pepper (washed, seeded, and diced) *she used red, I used green because it was less expensive 🙂
  • ½ can black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 cup quinoa (dry and cooked according to package)
  • 1 cup salsa (medium or hot)
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Black pepper (to taste)
  • 1 shredded chicken breast (I cooked them last night with lime juice, salt, and pepper)
  • Bibb lettuce

Cook the quinoa according to the package. As it cooks, chop the veggies and combine the ingredients (other than the lettuce…) in a large bowl. Stir in the quinoa and scoop the mix into the lettuce to make a quick and healthy meal! Whole thing took maybe 30 min to throw together.

Today was an arms day at the gym, didn’t get cardio in because I had spent most the day studying and needed to get some errands done (may get a chance to take the dog out before babysitting my niece and nephew tonight…)

8 bicep curls

8 lateral shoulder raises

12 tricep dips with weight plate on my legs

8 dumbbell rows

*3 sets

8 pull-ups on assisted machine

8 front pull-downs

8 overhead tricep extensions

*3 sets

8 cable rows

8 cable flys

20 leg lifts on incline

*2 sets… for the second set instead of leg lifts I did sit-ups on the incline

15 incline push-ups

20 “leg curls” (hands on the floor, feet up on a balance ball, curl your legs into your stomach)

20 crunches with medicine ball, keep arms straight up to the ceiling

20 reverse crunches with medicine ball in between knees

The whole thing took about 40 min, I was trying not to rest very much.
