My Roomates Boyfriend...

Is a very healthy guy. Like for real. Very regimented when it comes to his food intake and his workouts and everything. Yes he has the occasional apple pie that I make but other then that he is on point and I am so in awe. Last night my roomie decided she wanted to start to get healthy so he came over and laid it all out on the table of what she needed to do. I was in the living room lying on the couch with my plethora of candles lit and my relaxation Pandora station going and listening to the whole thing. Of course I gave my two cents every 5 seconds just to be funny because hello that's me. But I was really taking everything in and to heart.

I know that everything comes with time and if you just change one aspect of your life at a time eventually it will all work together.

So for lunch today I am making Skinny Tastes, Chicken Thighs with Artichoke hearts (and sundried tomatoes)
I found the recipe HERE looking through one of my favorite sites online for healthy recipes.

My mouth immediately watered and I knew that I needed to make this so I went out and got all the ingredients and made it happen.

Here are the progression pictures as I prepared it.

Have you ever seen this beauty right here??

My boss uses this stuff all the time, perfect for when you want some rice but don't have 1800 years to cook it. Basically you pull the cup out, pop open the top a tad and put it in the microwave for 1 minute and then ta-da perfectly cooked rice.

All together with rice and two pieces of chicken and goodness you looking at around 450 calories. Not to shabby!



  1. I love those little minute rice bowls! That looks like a great recipe!

  2. That looks so tasty! We eat a LOT of chicken and I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. I will have to try this out.
