It feels like I haven’t blogged in like a year, but it’s only been a week. Felt good to take some “time off” from Fit Foodie Finds to focus on the Healthy Glow Collective. I spent the last week in Phoenix with the team working on some really amazing upcoming projects. For any of you that work remote, you know where I’m coming from when I say it’s not the easiest! For the most part, I love working from home, but I also love face time with my teams! Monique is in Chicago, Katie is in Denver, and I am in Minneapolis…so when we get together it’s like a mini-reunion paired with a lot of GSD time. We brought our favorite photographer with us (FOLLOW HER ON IG), Brooke, to capture every moment…just like the photo from the top of Pinnacle Peak!

Man was it great to get away from the wintery weirdness of Minnesota! What’s funny is that there was torrential rain in Phoenix the first two days we were there. Apparently “it doesn’t rain in Arizona”. It was also quite chilly- only 64 degrees the first day! We did luck out the last day and a half when the sun finally came out and it warmed up back into the 70’s. FEW.

All Things Cilantro Lime Chicken and Cauliflower Rice

Our goal for this recipe was all things Spring. How can we incorporate the flavors of spring into a delicious, meal-prep recipe that you can eat all week long? The answer?

  • CITRUS
  • FRESH HERBS

This cilantro lime chicken is everything you’ve ever wanted in a chicken recipe. It’s fresh and perfectly flavored. Best part? It can be eaten hot or cold! I actually prefer to mix temperatures when I eat. So what I did for this recipe specifically was eat the cauliflower rice warm and the chicken cold. <3 Speaking of the cauliflower rice, you’re going to love it! We used the pre-riced cauliflower from Trader Joe’s and mixed in some spices, black beans, and some raw red onion. Yum sauce.

And quite honestly, the best part about this recipe is that it can be meal prepped all at once and then eaten throughout the week.
