Chicken Gyros

I’ll admit it. It’s not my most complex recipe.

But good thing you don’t care about that since this is tasty delicious anyway. And healthy for you! I’m sure y’all were concerned about that.

Now that I’ve started working-out hardcore, I could spend approximately 99 percent of my time stuffing my face. Out of that stuffing-face-time, if left to my own devices, I could probably stuff my face with gyros 73 percent of the time.

If I were Julie Andrews, I would add ‘gyros’ to a melody I’d sing to frightened children during a thunderstorm.

If I were Oprah, I’d give them to manic audience members for Christmas.

They’re good, yo. I’m not lying.

Also…before we start, a pro tip. They’re pronounced ‘yee-rohs’.

Now you know everything I know. Let’s do this party people.

OH!!! And THIS is what you’re going to want to bust out the mint and lemon garlic tzatziki for! DO IT.

Mint and Lemon Garlic Tzatziki

I’m sure you can all guess what the follow up post to this will be!

First of all, as usual, making your own is way cheaper beyond cheap. PLUS it’s fresh which makes it that much better. I used some lemon infused garlic I had in the freezer that the awesome neighbors gave us a while back, but if you don’t happen to have neighbors as wonderful, some minced garlic with a squeeze of lemon will do just fine.

Let’s goooooo!!!

Green Smoothies

1
 

See, I told you I’m eating healthier.

Except on Valentines Day. I pretty much ate my way through Valentines Day (it landed on a cheat day). My boyfriend looked on with a mixture of pride and disgust.

However, a green smoothie is one of the best things ever to detox from Valentines Day AND Mardi Gras which is coming up on Tuesday (February 21st) AND anything else you do on your Saturday night that you try to hush up.

Seeing as they pack a ton of veggies into one impressive drink, green smoothies are crazy good for you. And since they’re so fabulous, there are about a bazillion recipes out there for green smoothies and they’re all wonderful. It’s just really about tuning in on what you want in yours. The one below is packed with all of my favorite things, including a green tea base which puts a nice pep in my step. Yeah, I said it.

Another thing y’all should know about the green smoothie, is even though it looks mildly disgusting, the flavor of the pear overpowers everything else. I promise.

Onward!
