Chicken Tinga Tacos – 80 DO & 21 DF Approved!

Tuesdays at my house are for tacos, nachos, enchiladas, quesadillas, etc!

We like using different lean proteins, fish or even meatless now and then.

I found this new recipe on Fixate (along with hundreds of workout options, it’s one of the many exclusives for Beachbody on Demand members), and I knew I needed to try it!

And good news, it fits in perfectly to my 80 Day Obsession meal plan!

The dogs are always very interested in what’s going on in the kitchen. I generally trip over them a few times and finally give in to their desperate stares and actual puppy dog eyes! 😉 They enjoyed a few tastes almost as much as we did!

CHICKEN TINGA TACOS

Serves 4 (2 tacos each)

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup low-sodium organic chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. unflavored gelatin (preferably from grass-fed cows)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ¾ cup chopped onion (approx. 1 medium)

  • 1 cup all-natural tomato puree
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano leaves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 canned chipotle chili peppers in adobo sauce, finely chopped **I used 1 Tbsp. because the first time with two was way too spicy for me!
  • 1 Tbsp. adobo sauce (sauce from the canned chipotle chili peppers in adobo sauce)
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp. finely grated lime peel (lime zest)
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken breast **I cook my chicken breasts in low-sodium chicken broth in the slow cooker then shred
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas

DIRECTIONS

  1. Sprinkle broth with gelatin in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium high heat until fragrant.

  6. Remove bay leaves. Divide ¾ cup (1 red container) chicken mixture between two tortillas (1 yellow) for each serving.

Egg Roll Bowl! (80 DO Approved!)

Oh my goodness! This is heaven in a bowl! I might have this as my post-workout meal every single day for the duration of my new fitness program! I made a huge pan of it that I will enjoy the rest of the week!

I love that this meal plan tells me exactly what to eat and when to eat it! It really takes the guesswork out of the entire process! And although it’s probably one of the most disciplined programs I’ve ever done, somehow it’s been easier for me to stick with it than any other program I’ve tried.

Oh, and I LOVE the workouts too! But I’ll talk about that another day. Right now, it’s all about the food!

80 Day Obsession – Week 1 Review

Seven days ago I started this 80 day journey with 51 amazing ladies, all ready to get focused and commit to a new program and our new year goals! And if these first seven days are any indication, the results are going to blow our minds!

THE WORKOUTS

The best way I can describe the workouts is tough but doable – even for a 46 year old mom of four, with a shoulder injury, foot injury and a crazy busy life!

Week 1, Phase 1 looked like this:

Day 1: Total Body Core
Day 2: Booty
Day 3: Cardio Core
Day 4: AAA
Day 5: Legs
Day 6: Cardio Flow
Day 7: Roll & Release

Here are just a few clips of what they look like in real life, in my home gym, down in my basement:

These loops and sliders are new and challenging! I love how customizable they are too! I have 6 different options for loop resistance. Whenever necessary, I modified with the sliders too by using a smaller range of motion, or using one leg at a time in some of the exercises. Room for improvement for sure!

THE NUTRITION PLAN

My first concern was – OMG! This is too much food to eat every day! I am in ‘Plan C’ (just in case you were wondering), and I have 5 meals I need to fit in each day. And although there is a learning curve – and planning/prepping is key – it’s ALL laid out for me! I know exactly what types of foods I need to eat at each meal, and at what time throughout the day! Once you understand it, there’s no guess work. I have actually never stuck to a plan as well as I have this one!

And doesn’t it all look yummy?

THE RESULTS

Well first off let me tell you that we were told NOT to weigh ourselves during the first 2 weeks. I am a rule follower, so I didn’t. BUT, I can tell you that I feel tighter and toner and my clothes are fitting better already! I can tell I am less ‘mushy’ in the middle and I just feel stronger, walking taller and ready to push on for week 2!

And even though I told those 51 ladies they shouldn’t weigh in until week 2, a few couldn’t resist, and I can’t blame them!

I received this messaged from Jamey:

“Just wanted to share… I’ve lost 6 lbs this week! I’ve never lost that much in week one while also exercising. The containers must be working!”

And this one from Lori:

“I know we werent suppose to weigh yet…but I did lol Ive lost 8lbs…”

And this from Gretchen:

“…we’re not supposed to weigh in, but I WILL celebrate being down 3,5″ in all the right places!!! Waist, hips, abductors, and chest (or back fat lol)!!”

There was a test group before the launch and here are some results from participants who completed all 80 days:

THE INVITE!
