Fired Up Chicken Fajitas

Property of

I’ve been on a lean meat kick lately. I figure if I’m going to train my butt off for Tough Mudder I might as well go all the way and get a six pack. This basically means being extra strict! I wanted to turned something I already loved (and was pretty healthy) into something even more healthy and lean. I wanted fajitas that could fuel my body through an intense workout regimen. This is fajitas done Paleo with enough nutrients to fill you up and keep you going.


1 chicken breast (I would cook roughly .5-1 chicken breast per person)
salt & pepper (for seasoning)
Iceberg lettuce (I find iceberg provides the best lettuce cups but please feel free to use whatever it is you like best)
broccoli slaw
avocado slices(or guacamole; here’s our expert guacamole recipe)
salsa (here’s a fantastic Mango Pineapple Salsa recipe from


Heat grill to high heat.
Sprinkle chicken breast with salt & pepper for seasoning.
Place chicken on grill and cook for roughly 15 minutes (or until chicken is cooked thoroughly). Remove chicken from grill and slice into thin slices.
While chicken is cooking, slice iceberg lettuce in half. Remove and discard top lettuce leaf. Carefully remove remaining lettuce leafs which you will use as lettuce cups for your fajitas.
To assemble, place chicken in lettuce cups and top with broccoli slaw, avocado slices and salsa.
This meal is packed full of nutrients and is totally customizable based on your taste buds.

Tropical Chicken Wings

Tropical Chicken Wings

Baked chicken is my go to for those evenings when a movie or a good book call my name. Like tonight! Other than a few minutes of preparation time, baked chicken takes care of itself in the oven while you enjoy life.

The great thing is, quick dishes don’t need to mean boring dishes, and this Tropical Chicken Wing recipe is one of those that will have guests think you spent hours in the kitchen. It’ll be our little secret!


1 teaspoon coconut oil, for greasing
3/4 pound organic chicken wings
1/2 mango, sliced into thin strips
1 1/2 tablespoons paprika spice
1/2 tablespoon garlic
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil or grass-fed butter, melted
Oregano spice, for a finishing touch


Preheat the oven to 450 degree F.
Grease a baking dish with one teaspoon coconut oil.
Place the chicken wings in the dish and sprinkle with the paprika spice.
Add the mango strips to the dish, placing them at random between the chicken wings.

Tropical Chicken Wings Preparation
Place the dish in the oven to bake for 20 minutes.
During those 20 minutes, prepare the garlic glaze by mixing a 1/2 tablespoon of paprika spice, the garlic and a 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil or grass-fed butter in a small bowl.
Remove the chicken dish from the oven and coat the wings with the spicy garlic glaze.
Place the dish back in the oven and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, or until the chicken is well done.
Remove the dish from the oven, sprinkle with oregano and serve while warm.

It’s almost like dining in the tropics while getting your nutrients and omega-3!

The Workout Salad

Property of

For those of you who may not know, Camilla and I are in the middle of training for Tough Mudder. Tough Mudder is a half marathon, obstacle course and ohh yeah…it’s probably the toughest event on the planet. To help keep myself energized for my pre-mudder training I wanted to find a healthy alternative to the traditional carb based meal. This is an easy and quick salad, that is packed with nutrients, healthy fats and has great flavor.


your choice of salad (I use a mixed green)
1/4 pound of turkey sandwich meat (you’ll want to make sure you select one that is Paleo, so no nitrates or preservatives)
1/2 tomato
1/2 avocado
1/2 lime
1/4 teaspoon salt


Place a bed of washed salad on a plate.
Dice your tomato, avocado and turkey; then place on top of salad.
Squeeze half a lime over salad and top with salt.

It’s that easy and it will keep you fueled during your workouts. Here’s to getting fit!

Paleo Popsicles

Paleo Popsicle

On these hot summer days it’s only normal to crave a little ice-cream indulgence; which is why I took it upon myself to experiment with some dairy-free alternatives. The result? Banana and coconut milk based treats so easy to make and so healthy, you can eat one every day without even thinking twice!


1/2 large banana
2 tablespoons coconut milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon


Have a popsicle mold at the ready.
Mash the banana and then mix in the coconut milk.
Add the cinnamon and whisk until well blended.

Paleo Popsicle Mixture
Pour the mixture into the popsicle mold and place in the freezer to set for at least 2 hours before enjoying your guilt-free dessert!

Paleo Popsicle Mold

Chocolate lover like me? Simply replace the cinnamon with Cacao powder for a delicious choc-banana superfood delight.

How’s that for easy and healthy!? Enjoy,
