Whip up an easy healthy salad using leftovers. As a busy mom i need meals to be quick so we always grill extra chicken and veggies to eat for lunch over two days. Add some lettuce, apples, and walnuts and voila! Make eating healthy easier on yourself by a little pre-prep. Little ninja Lego garnish courtesy of my daughter. #eatclean #eatcleantraindirty #healthymeals #fitmommy #healthyeating #fitfood #fitnesslifestyle #healthydiet #fitchick  #fitnessforlife #fitmama #makingachange #lowcarb #lowfat

Chicken breasts are a great source of lean protein. But are you getting bored of your breasts? Try marinating them in a Greek yogurt based marinade. It makes them tender and juicy and you can choose your own flavor adventure. Just throw in some lemon juice, salt, pepper and any other spice you want (try curry, or garam masala and ginger, or garlic and rosemary, or whatever other spice combination strikes your fancy). The possibilities are endless! You'll never be bored of your (chicken!) breasts again!  One of our favorite Greek yogurt marinades is fresh garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper and rosemary (pictured). #fitfood #protein #griledchicken #eatclean #eatcleantraindirty #healthymeals #lowfat #lowcarb
