Clean Eating Fajitas w/Seasoning

SUPER SIMPLE Clean Eating Fajitas w/Seasoning, 4 Ways!I’m a huge fan of cooking one main meal, then reusing it multiple ways later in the week. We all have a million things to do, so why spend extra time in the kitchen if we don’t have to?! This fajita-seasoned chicken can be used SOOOO many different ways.

And you don’t need any expensive/processed packets of seasoning mix loaded with sugar, it’s super simple to make this marinade at home!!! #eatrealfood #feelrealgood

Recently I grilled a triple batch up on a sunny Sunday after church, and we used it to make 4 MEALS that week!
1. CHICKEN FAJITAS  – with Gluten Free brown rice tortillas and salsa
2. CHICKEN SALADS – leftover meat & veggies, served on salad, w/chips and salsa
3. CHICKEN BURRITO BOWLS – leftover meat & veggies, served over brown rice w/salsa
4. CHICKEN DINNER – leftover meat & veggies,with grilled pineapple & quinoa

All four meals were a hit with my toddler and hubby, AND they were super easy and healthy too!! #winwin  These are exactly the type of meal plans I love sharing in my online nutrition group, so I wanted to post it here for you guys as well 🙂

Does your family love Fajitas too??

Fast & Flavorful Marinated Chicken

Fast & Flavorful CLEAN EATING Marinated Chicken!

I used to think I needed special seasoning packets or bottled blends to actually get some FLAVOR when I marinated meat.

But those pre-packaged marinades usually are full of sodium, sugar and not-so-healthy additives, so when I started eating cleaner to relieve my thyroid symptoms (low energy & metabolism, brain fog, etc.) I needed a way to spice up our meat WITHOUT relying on those seasoning packets! 

This easy marinade has been a life saver!! It’s super quick and the meat ends up really moist (dry chicken is the WORST right?!). You can pair your chicken with brown rice or sweet potato and veggies, or use it on salads, wraps, etc.
