A few weeks ago I went to a group meeting to talk about my problems with anxiety and what I can do to minimize the amount of anxiety that I have on a daily basis. Obviously I need to work out more since physical activity helps reduce stress which in return will reduce anxiety. But I also need to take control of what I consume each and every day.
Because I sit 80% of the day at my job, I find myself eating a bunch of junk food like chips and candy. It’s quick and easy and of course, it’s delicious! Who wants to say no to chocolate? Well, these things have a lot of sugar and some not-so-good stuff in it that can cause anxiety flare ups. I have taken it upon myself to make a change in my life physically and watch the food that I eat. As of December 1, I will do my best to eat better and work out more. I hope to add some of my favorite work out routines onto here soon. Not sure if anyone would want to follow that or not – but I promise I won’t try to sell you anything! haha.
Now that I’ve decided to better my life, I need to come up with some yummy and healthy meal options. As much as I love cooking, some times I just want something quick and easy to make but also something that’s a bit on the healthy side. And also something that my husband will eat. With this chicken wrap recipe, I still get my veggies, dairy, and protein.
2 Chicken Breasts (cubed)
1 tbs Olive Oil
4 Large Tortilla Shells
1 Red Pepper (chopped)
1 Small Onion (chopped)
1 tbs Cilantro
1/2 cup Low Fat Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup Low Fat Ranch
– Put olive oil on frying skillet.
– Cook the cubed up chicken thoroughly.
– In a medium sized bowl, mix cilantro, cheese, red pepper, onion, and chicken.
– Spread chicken mixture onto the tortilla shells in the middle.
– Drizzle ranch dressing on top of mixture.
– Fold tortilla shell like a burrito.
– Heat up a cast iron skillet and brown both sides of the burrito until you get nice, crisp grill lines.
– Serve with your favorite veggie or side dish! (In this case, I used white rice.)
On a photography side of things, I’m trying to become more comfortable with food photography and the lighting in my kitchen is TERRIBLE! So bear with me as I try to get better images of the yummy food I make! And for reference, I used this Adobe Lightroom preset to edit my images in this post.
Stay tuned for more yummy (but healthy) recipes!
