This meal was too good for me not to share the recipe with everyone. It’s amazing how something as simple as a grilled cheese can make such a scrumptious dinner. There is no reason to every make grilled cheese with American cheese again.

After a week and a half out of the gym because of a messed up foot, I was back in the gym and extremely stoked. I was amazed at how good I felt after working out. I was excited about working out again, but I think it just helped my mood in general. I am hoping for no more foot issues, so that doesn’t happen again.
Also, weight update: I haven’t lost anymore, but I also haven’t gained any back. I thought for sure with spring break and no working out thrown in there I would have gained something back. But I guess I have been doing better than I thought I was going to.
aaaaand I made a super tasty healthy dinner. I think I am back on track.
Southwest eggrolls. I am quite the sucker for egg rolls, so I was super excited about this recipe. Each roll is stuffed with spinach, black beans, corn, cheese, onions, and I added some chicken. They had a wonderfully fresh flavor and were nice and moist. I added the chicken because I was having them as a meal. I only ate three, which meant muchos leftovers. I will be partaking in them again for dinner tonight. It may have been my oven, but I had to more than double the cooking time to get them semi-golden brown.
I am excited to try new ingredient combos and come up with my own egg roll recipes.

So school has definitely gotten the better of me the past few days. I have been busy and tired and in no mood to blog. That hasn’t stopped me from eating healthy, just sharing it with you guys. I think I can finally say my diet has reached normalcy. It doesn’t feel weird that I am only preparing veggies as my side, and I am not counting down the days until my cheat. I am also not too hung up on being perfect. Have I had some chocolate this week? Yes. Have I gone over board? I don’t think so. The easiest way for me to avoid the unhealthy habits is I am simply not buying the unhealthy stuff like rice and chips and cookies. It’s a struggle every time I go to the store, but I know it is worth it when I get home and I don’t feel guilty.
Here is to getting through tough weeks outside of eating and continuing to eat healthy food. Instead of doing six meals in one post, because that would be absurd. I am sharing my favorite meal from the past couple of days.
This one is definitely a keeper. I think this biggest idea on this blog so far has been how much leftovers dictate my meals, and this one is no different. Soon to expire tzatziki sauce meant I needed to do something with it. I didn’t want to indulge in a full pita, so I went with a bread-less chicken gyro. I cooked the chicken pieces in some onions, lemon juice, chicken stock and italian seasoning. Wonderfully fresh flavor. And then I topped it with tomatoes, lettuce and the sauce. It seems so basic, but it tasted so great. Definitely something I would cook again. I love food I feel good about eating, and this meal fit that bill.
