I’m the first to admit that I spend way too much time on Pinterest. It’s the best way to find creative recipes, doable DIY projects and endless inspiration. I wanted to make something summery for dinner with all the fresh vegetables I had in the fridge. My plan was fresh, grilled chicken kabobs with rice. I had zucchini, mushrooms, tomatoes and chicken, oil, salt and pepper and seasoning. My only drawback is that when I’ve made kabobs in the past, the veggies never come out quite right. I never want to overcook the protein so the vegetables are either overcooked or undercooked. I found a pin for the best ‘fool proof’ recipe for kabobs. Instead of mixing everything on the skewers, put all of one food on each. So I had 2 filled with zucchini, 2 with mushrooms, 4 with chicken and 4 with tomatoes. Everything cooks at different times so everything was cooked to perfection. My only regret is not taking pictures while I was doing it. Next time I’ll remember! The best part is that since I skipped the rice and loaded up on veggies, my blood sugar stayed steady at 150 (until I had fro yo and had to correct…). I still haven’t made cauliflower crust pizza, and there are a lot of recipes to try on my list!
Before my delicious meal, I had an awesome workout with a great friend. I forgot how much I loved the track! I went with my neighbor to run and to do the stairs. We stayed about 45 minutes and didn’t stop moving the entire time. I love working out with a friend because the time just slips away. As much as I love working out, I can get a bit lazy when I exercise by myself. Having a buddy there with me holds me accountable! She is working up to a 5k, I’m working up to a half marathon. No matter the level it doesn’t make the goal as daunting when you’re experiencing it with someone else.
