Food Prep and Burpees!?? Fit challenge V 20

How do food prep and burpees go together? Well this is how...

Yesterday while I was getting all my food prep done for the week I  decided that while I waited for the oven to pre-heat I would make use of my time and shot two videos HAHA. Check out Video 1 here...

Food Prep for me is like smoking to others... It's something that has to be done, at a certain time, and what can I say it is somewhat addicting... OK OK maybe not the best analogy but you get where I am going.
This was my score for the week: 1 Lunch, 2 breakfasts, 2 snacks, Not Pictured: lots of chopped veggies for hummus, trail mix, and a full menu written out.

The lunch that I prepped will last for a few days and is a great alternative to a typical bagged lunch. Just because I love you all so much I am sharing it with you, right now!!!

Fiesta Chicken
What you need:
1tsp coconut oil (or sub olive oil) 
3 Chicken Breasts
1.5 peppers
1 onion
.5 package of guacamole mix

What You Do:
1. Chop Veggies and chicken into slices
2. Heat Oil in a heavy skillet, once hot enough add veggies and half the package of guacamole seasoning. Cover and let "sweat" for aprox. 5 min.  Mix, cover and let cook for another 5min.
3. Once veggies have softened (onions will begin to look clear) add chicken. Stir and cover. Stir every 3-4 min until Chicken is cooked through.
4. Remove from heat. Serve on a pita, wrap or all by itself. Get creative.

This Right here was my favorite way to enjoy it... In a wrap with some spinach, salsa, and cheese. can we say DELISH! How much better can a healthy bagged lunch get?

Now that I have given you a new recipe to enjoy at home and at work... Here is today's Fitness challenge.
