Chicken & Steak Tacos with Cauliflower Tortillas

Leave a comment
Dinner / Prep Approved

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and we were talking about the delicious tacos we had when he was out here visiting. During prep, we definitely cannot have tortillas but I was definitely craving them! So an idea popped in my head, a long, long time ago, I made cauliflower pizza crust and it reminded me of corn tortillas. It was definitely time to get “prep approved” creative! One of […]

Breakfast / Main Dish

If you haven’t noticed, Sundays are my breakfast or brunch recipe days. We’ve had a very busy week. The past two weeks, most of our meals during the week have been plain chicken or ground turkey and steamed veggies. I haven’t had the chance to experiment in the kitchen. Yesterday, Vince and I had a full day and started with Strength and Conditioning Class at our gym at 9 am. Then we went from one […]

Dinner / Main Dish / Prep Approved

Fridays are usually steak nights in our household. But sometimes fatty fish are just the perfect replacement. Vince and I went to the market and saw this beautiful tuna steak and it was the perfect protein for our steak night. The beauty of the perfect protein like Ahi Tuna is that you don’t have to over cook or do a whole lot to it. That’s why I wouldn’t really call these recipes, they’re super easy […]

Nothing better than Sunday mornings and pancakes….and chocolate. One thing I’ve been craving a lot of lately is chocolate. The funny thing is I’m not usually a sweets person but lately chocolate anything soulds like a winner to me! I’m in prep for another 5 weeks, so I had to get a bit creative in getting my chocolate fix in. Cocoa powder to the rescue! I’m obsessed with special dark cocoa dutch powder. It’s definitely […]

Steamed Chicken and Leaks “Dumplings”

Main Dish / Prep Approved

Something about Sundays that makes me crave some dim sum. Asian food is my comfort food. I could eat it all day! Since I’m on prep and dim sum is not really on the diet plan, I was trying to figure out a way to satisfy this craving. While waiting for the red snapper to finish cooking in the steamer, it gave me an idea for chicken dumplings. I knew there’s no way I could […]

I have been a bit busy. I’ve been working on this post for almost two weeks now! Vince and I went to the Asian Market a couple of weeks ago and there were so many different kinds of fresh fish. The Red Snapper definitely caught my eyes. Tilapia is usually the go to fish of body builders but we’re a bit tilapia’d out in this household. I was inspired to make a very simple dish […]

Dinner / Prep Approved

Yesterday was one of those days. Instead of getting on the treadmill after work for some cardio. Vince and I hit and our four legged kiddos took a very long walk¬†around the neighborhood¬†instead. The weather couldn’t be more perfect. It was exactly what I needed; fresh air, leaves turning and just enjoying the outdoors. It was quite refreshing. When we got back to the apartment, I wanted to cook something eventhough I had meal prepped […]

Friday night, my coach, Yoko and training partner, Lauren came over for dinner and we watched the live broadcast of the Olympia. We made some kale chips to snack on while waiting on the delish steak dinner that Vince was grilling. Lauren suggested that we make some meringue cookies for dessert and use stevia instead of sugar. Why didn’t I think of this before??! I’ve made the “dirty” version of these cookies before and they’re […]
