I'll admit that I fell off the healthy eating and exercising wagon. Life gets in the way...blah blah blah. I could give a million excuses as to why I fell off from doing so well. The truth is, I got lazy. No one to blame but myself. I'm trying to get back on the wagon to continue my weight loss journey. Which leads me to this post.

I was searching for healthy recipes I could try. I found a post for Grilled Chili Lime Chicken Fajita Salad that looked promising. I made my grocery list and gave it to my husband because, well...I hate going shopping. The one thing I forgot to mention to him was to make sure to get red and yellow bell peppers. He came back with green bell peppers, oh well at least he came back with peppers.

I made my marinade the night before and put the chicken into a shallow dish with some of the marinade/dressing and put it into the fridge. Next, I prepped all the veggies and placed those into the fridge so it would be easier to make after the kids got home from school. Now the waiting begins.

My youngest comes home from school around 3pm. As soon as his body hit the front porch, to the fridge I went to start making the dinner. Everything was done and ready to eat by 3:45pm ish. While mine isn't as pretty as the recipe I found, it was SO DELISH! My son is usually a picky eater but even he said the chicken was a hit and he ate all the salad, minus the avocado.

Normally I send him to school with a pre-made lunchable style veggie pack. After the success of this meal, I think I'll start making our own lunches. I know the other ones are convenient  but if we make our own then we know exactly what our kiddo is eating, plus it gets him involved with his meal prep.
