I have been doing a great job of sticking to my goals over the past few weeks! I have been doing cardio 4-5 times per week and weight lifting or doing a mini bootcamp 2 times per week. My cardio includes running, walking, elliptical or an interval workout. I already feel so much better mentally and physically by making working out a priority again!
But, my goals didn’t stop there. Cooking more and eating healthy real food has been even more of a priority for me. I have only been shopping around the perimeter of the grocery store (except for a few items) and picking up delicious fresh fruits and veggies each week. It is really easy to eat healthy if you only have healthy foods in your house. I used to be so good at this (check out my pantry here!), but after having a baby I got a little off track. But, I’m back!!
My pantry is re-stocked and I am getting back in to cooking delicious and healthy meals for my family.
It is the end of the week, so our fridge is looking a little bare, but that didn’t stop me from making a delicious lunch!
Tuna Bean Pasta
serves 2-4, depending on how hungry you are :)
-1 can tuna, white albacore
-1 can garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
-1 cup whole wheat pasta, cooked
-1 cup frozen broccoli, thawed while cooking pasta or in microwave
-2 tbsp dijon mustard
-1/4 cup relish
-pepper to taste
-avocado for garnish
Throw everything in to a bowl and mix! Viola! A simple, delicious, healthy meal!!
This meal was delicious. If you like tuna, it is a must. You could even serve it over a bed of greens to get in more nutrients. It would be a perfect meal after a long day at work, or something that you could make and grab for lunch each day.
With the addition of the avocado, this meal is a great balance of protein, veggies, fat and carbs.
