What a crazy weekend this has been! I feel like I have been on the go nonstop, but I have been very productive! Dan and I managed to motivate and go to the gym both days this weekend which feels AMAZING! I also spent a few hours meal prepping today to help me not feel so busy during the week. It DEFINITELY helps when I want to hit the gym after work, but also want to have a home cooked meal.

A great idea for meal prep is making something in bulk that is healthy and easy to bring work. This Fiesta Chicken Salad is a great option when you’re trying to eat better and want to pack a lunch instead of spending money going out every day. This recipe will easily make enough to last one person a week!

Fiesta Chicken Salad

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cooked and shredded
  • 1 small can corn, drained
  • 1 can low sodium organic black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can Rotel (I used hot, but you can also use Original if you aren’t a big spicy fan), drained
  • 2 Tablespoons plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  1. Mix chicken with vegetables and cilantro in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix Greek Yogurt with Cajun seasoning until blended.
  3. Mix yogurt mixture into chicken, stirring well.
  4. Refrigerate at least one hour before enjoying.

Note: This chicken salad is great served on Romaine lettuce leaves, in pita bread, or on it’s own! For an extra crunch, try topping with crushed tortilla chips!

Looking for a new recipe to fill your taco shells, or maybe to spice up your boring salad? This shredded chicken has amazing flavor, requires minimal effort, and is clean eating! By making your own taco seasoning, you are skipping out on the preservatives that are usually added into the packets, and you can control the salt and spice level!

Meal Planning

Meal prepping is something I try to do weekly, but it is also something I struggle with. My struggle today? I’m trying to make a list of recipes and a shopping list while I’m hungry! This is NOT a good mix! Every recipe I think of sounds amazing, and looking at what I have, I am going to end up with WAY more food than I need to last me a week.

With that being said, I have definitely decided to try making baked chicken fajitas tomorrow. I can use this in so many different ways through the week, and it’s such an easy recipe!

Along with the fajitas, I believe I will be making some Mexican rice and maybe some salsa. I guess this week’s recipes will all have a Mexican theme to them! (Have you noticed I have a SERIOUS Mexican/spicy food addiction yet?!)

Check back for new recipes tomorrow, and to see how my meal prepping went. Wish me luck!
