Meal Ideas + Back Workout

In talking with clients over the last couple of days one big issue many people have is meal variety and I can totally relate to that. Sometimes I go through phases where I can eat the same thing all the time and sometimes I can never eat the same thing twice. So, I'm going to do my best to share meal ideas with you guys when I come up with them-- they won't all be full on recipes per say, more just ideas on way you can pair different things that you may just have laying around your kitchen or pantry. 

Exhibit A (above) was inspired by my favorite fast food place that I haven't eaten at in... a long time. I love me a Taco Bell tostada but with my beach vacation only weeks away I decided to make an at-home version instead. I took corn tortillas and sprayed them and a pan with olive oil spray and crisped them on both sides. While those were crisping I drained a can of pinto beans and placed them in my food processor along with about a teaspoon of garlic salt and blended them. These were my pseudo refried beans which I then spread onto the tortillas and added shredded chicken that I already had in my fridge, shredded lettuce and tomato. Topped it with a little hot sauce and tadaaa! Craving satisfied. 

This is another super easy one that I made mostly because I wanted to use the quinoa I kept sating at in the pantry. I took some garlic quinoa (cooked) and mixed it with shredded chicken, garlic, salt, pepper, cayenne and 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce. I then spooned that into muffin tins and topped with more sauce and topped half of them with cheese for B and half without for me. I baked them on 350 for about 15 minutes. 

I didn't do one of the Fit by Feb workouts today because we were a little pressed for time but I did want to share our back workout for those of you that may be wanting to switch things up a bit.
