We've hit that spot in the relationship - the one where you realize you really do have to get back to exercise and eating healthy. It has been a fun vacation from it all. But gym memberships have been purchased and new recipes are being sought. Of course the struggle between a night owl and a morning bird is, when to work out. Lately, we've been heading over after work (usually with roomie Megs), but this means we get back and all start making dinner around 8:30pm. And for those of you who know my tendency to take a really long time to make a meal.... you realize how late we eat.
Yesterday, I came across this great site - Organized Living Solutions - and a quick trip from one link to another lead me to a tasty looking (simple) meal! We had plenty of leftover chicken in John's fridge that we needed to make use of soon. Perfect!
It was delicious! Though, I was a bit disappointed when I discovered that Couscous really isn't that healthy. I mean, it's no quinoa.
We were eating within about 20 minutes. We used craisins instead of the dates. We did toss in some feta, but we opted out of the sour cream. This meal is so flavorful, it really doesn't need it. In fact, a little of the dressing, tossed well throughout, goes a long ways.
Here's to a new season of meal planning, and quicker, healthier dinners. Any suggestions - or favorite healthy (quick) meals?
