BUSY. CRAZY. HECTIC.
Yep, pretty much the words to describe my life right now.
I know everyone is busy but you guys I just feel like right now there are simply not enough hours in the day.
Last week I officially accepted a new position at work as the San Diego Senior Brand Ambassador for Perfect Bar WOO HOO! Transitioning out of my current role into this one has been crazy to say the least. Oh and it doesn’t stop there…I’m flying out to Portland for work on Friday then flying to Boise for a wedding then BAM its Memorial Day Weekend with CrossFit regionals and then Rock ‘N’ Roll San Diego ahhhhh! It never ends.
Honestly just writing this post is giving me anxiety thinking about all the things I have coming up but am just trying to take it day by day and do the best I can to maintain a healthy balance in my life.
Usually with a busy schedule eating healthy is one of the first things to go (I’m 100% guilty of this). BUT with my running being so limited eating like crap simply isn’t an option. I’ve really been relying on quick, easy, convenient meals these past couple weeks and wanted to share these awesome Chicken Lettuce Wraps with you all today.
They take less than 10 minutes to prepare and have been absolutely saving my life. Even better, all the ingredients are from Trader Joe’s for a one stop shop!
Chicken Lettuce Wraps
I originally found this recipe on Trader Joe’s website, made a couple modifications to it and absolutely fell in love. If you all haven’t browsed Trader Joe’s website for easy recipes using only their products yet you’re missing out!
- 1-2 Tbsp Trader Joe’s spicy peanut vinaigrette or reduced fat cilantro salad dressing plus more to taste
- Cook rice noodles according to package directions and toss with dressing of choice (set aside)
- Put lettuce leaves onto a plate and layer in the rice noodles, extra dressing if you want, chicken and carrots. Wrap it up and enjoy.
What’s your go to meal for busy nights?
