Chicken and Vegetable Spaghetti

Chicken and vegetable spaghetti is one of my go-to’s. It’s full of flavor and simple to make.

Ingredients:

  • chicken breasts
  • olive oil
  • bell peppers
  • red onion
  • spaghetti noodles
  • spaghetti sauce (your preference)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • basil
  • minced garlic

First, boil water for the spaghetti noodles. When the water is boiling, place noodles in the water.

While waiting for the water to boil, chop the onion and bell peppers. Place the chopped vegetables in a skillet with olive oil on a low temperature.

Chop the chicken breasts into bite-size pieces. Add the chicken to the skillet along with the vegetables. Season with salt, pepper, basil, and minced garlic to taste. Add more olive oil if needed and increase the temperature to a medium heat.

In a sauce pan, pour in spaghetti sauce on a low heat. Season with salt, pepper, basil, and garlic cloves to taste.

Stir chicken and vegetables often to make sure everything gets cooked evenly. Stir the sauce occasionally to prevent burning or sticking.

Summer Fruit Smoothie

These smoothies are fast, nutritious, and tasty!

Ingredients (not measured):

  • baby kale & spinach mix
  • mixed frozen fruit
  • Tropicana Farmstand juice
  • protein powder

For this smoothie, I used the Dole strawberries, peaches, and bananas pack. I prefer to use Tropicana Farmstand juice because it has 1 serving of vegetables AND 1 serving of fruit, but tastes like a fruit juice. I also add in strawberry Body Fortress Whey Protein. It helps me feel good on days I exercise and keeps me full longer. *Read up on protein powders before using them.

I toss all of these ingredients into the blender. First I set the blender to smoothie for about 30 seconds, then liquefy for 15 seconds. It blends everything so smoothly that I don’t even need to use a spoon.

Smoothies are my go-to for lunch. What I really like about them  is how easily you can change out ingredients and it tastes like an entirely different meal.

I’ll be sharing more smoothie recipes in the near future, but I’d like to hear your ideas too. What kind of smoothies do you love?
