Meal planning is one of the best ways to keep up your healthy lifestyle.  We all have busy schedules and we can’t spend too much time cooking or even planning meals. Every week, I plan and prep my lunches to help me stay on track.    I am able to eat the same thing for lunch for a week at a time at most.  Then I need a change.  Hopefully you can do the same.  I’m going to try to keep up and let you know what I am eating this week.

Shredded Harissa Chicken

I found this recipe online and made a few changes to fit my goals.  

The recipe can be found on 

 You can find harissa at Middle East Market in Corpus Christi or you can make it yourself. For this recipe I added some extra roasted red peppers to bring down some of the heat. 

Instead of the rice as she shows in the picture, I opted for canned chickpeas.  They are high in fiber and protein and are a good source of vitamin b6 and vitamin c. They also keep me feeling satisfied longer.
