"Fried" Chicken

"Fried" Chicken

I absolutely love using my Air Fryer. It really, truly makes things tastes fried, even though there is no oil in the fryer. Craziness. I have always liked fried chicken… I used to love this one fried chicken Kid Cuisine freezer dinner as a kid. My parents would get us those whenever we had a babysitter. This is a lot healthier though, haha. But it tastes JUST as good, if not better. The Old Bay makes this chicken super tasty. And then your partner can make “old bae” jokes. So fun.

Asian-Inspired Tuna Salad

Asian-Inspired Tuna Salad

I was trying to come up with an easy, cheap, high-protein dish that I could meal prep for school lunches this week when tuna fish popped into my mind. I’m a big fan of tuna fish. I like it with mayo and pickles. I don’t even need bread, I can just eat it straight out of a bowl. But I wanted to spice things up a bit, and so I did quite literally with Sriracha in this Asian-inspired tuna salad. I put a scoop of this rocking combo over a bed of arugula each day for my lunch, but it would also be good with crackers, in a wrap, in a panini, or in any other imaginable form!

Power Egg Cups

Power Egg Cups

I NEVER used to eat before my workouts. But I am currently following an 80 day fitness program which incorporates timed nutrition and requires it! The combination of protein, veggie, and carbs really helps to fuel my workout. But sometimes I workout before school and sometimes I workout after... I'm a busy teacher! This recipe was born out of a need for something that I could meal prep a bunch of, that would keep throughout the week, and that I could eat quickly at any time of day. I could eat breakfast all day but lunch food at 5 AM? Not so much. So, egg cups! To read more about my 80 day journey, click here!
