First of all…you don’t have to ‘kebab’ this chicken if you don’t want to. You can just marinate it and grill it up…cause it’s really about the marinade! You could slather it on a shoe and it would still be pretty tasty!
But for the purposes of this recipe, let’s assume you’ll be grilling chicken (not shoes).
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lime, juiced
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
ground black pepper to taste
This marinade is enough for about 5-6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves.
Whisk all of the ingredients together.
Cut up chicken (if making kebabs) into 1 inch chunks.
Put the chicken in a large Ziploc bag and add marinade.
Put the chicken in the fridge and try to marinate for at least 2 hours (less if you’re in a hurry and didn’t plan ahead).
Place 5-6 pieces of chicken on each kebab stick (I pre-soaked mine so they wouldn’t burn).
*Optional – feel free to add some veggies to your kebabs (mushrooms, peppers, onion, tomato…)
Grill chicken over med/high heat and cook until juices run clear. (kebabs will take about 5-7 minutes on each side.
Then, when they were done grilling, I took the pieces off the stick, and shoved them into my 21 Day Fix container to see how many would fit! I was able to fit almost 2 full sticks in one red container – which was a lot of food!

I have such fond memories of picking strawberries as a kid. My mom would take us and I remember laying down between the rows, so nobody could see me eating my weight in berries! I would come back with an empty quart container, a drippy red chin and a FULL belly!
Taking my own kids is a lot of fun too! They are excellent taste-testers! With 4 extra pickers, I usually come home with 10 million strawberries and then try to figure out what to do with them all!
I like to make my grandmother’s strawberry shortcake recipe. I’ll usually do some freezer jam. Of course, we eat them fresh too!
A tasty strawberry spinach salad is always a nice summer treat!
I made this one the other day, topped with some grilled chicken. But what made the salad was this AMAZING dressing! OMG! It was SO incredibly delicious. The kids were seriously trying to DRINK it! (Not kidding). When I told them they couldn’t drink the salad dressing, they poured it on their plates and licked it clean! Oy!
You could also make this with thawed frozen berries – but FRESH is best!

People in my groups have been LOVING this program month after month because it works! It’s so simple! Dial in your nutrition. Get your portions figured out. Add 30 minutes/day of exercise and you WILL absolutely get results! Women in my groups who stick with it for 21 days generally lose up to 10-15 pounds. Men (for whatever reason) tend to drop even more! Grrr! And when you do several rounds in a row…you’ll end up like Michelle (one of my challenge participants) who has lost 13 pounds and 22 inches! And she reports that she’s seeing her ABS for the first time since having her kids! How fantastic right?!

I’ve been thinking about trying out one of the bazillion recipes out there for copycat Quest bars, and in the end…wouldn’t you know it…I kinda did my own thang!
But the results were pretty darn tasty if I do say so myself!
I actually made 2 batches: one chocolate chip cookie dough, and one chocolate brownie batter!
And I’ll show you how I did it, so that you can try it, and/or change it to your tastes, TOO!
Here’s what you’ll need:
4 scoops of your favorite vanilla protein powder (about 1/3 cup a scoop) – I used Beachbody whey. (I’m thinking you could use Shakeology for these too! For some extra nutrients!)
¼ cup natural nut or seed butter of choice (smooth, not crunchy) – I used peanut for this batch.
1/3 (I used Stevia, less if you like – feel free to sub honey, agave, etc…adjust water accordingly)
2-5 tbsp. water (add 1 T. at a time, add more or less as needed)
¼ cup oat flour
optional extras: I added 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips for my chocolate chip cookie dough batch, and 2 T. cocoa powder for my brownie batter batch. Experiment adding other fun ingredients like cinnamon, vanilla, dried fruit, etc…
In a large bowl, combine the protein powder, oat flour, nut butter and sweetener together. Add water 1 Tablespoon at a time – If using Stevia (dry sweetener) you’ll need more water than if using honey or agave.
Stir together – get your hand in there to smoosh it all together until you can form a ball with no little bits coming out.
Scoop out the dough onto a piece of wax paper and shape into a rectangle.
Cut into 5 bars and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes until firm.
Refrigerate & ENJOY!!!
And for those of you following the 21 Day Fix…here is your container count!
