Greek Chicken

I love Greek food.  A lot.

I even based my Honeymoon on my love of the cuisine.

Greek Food Honeymoon Greek Salad

I swear there’s a salad under that hunk of feta ;-).

But what I love most about Greek food is just how fresh and flavorful it can be.  There’s no need for a ton of processed ingredients.  And my food motto these days is “keep it simple.”

So I give you Greek Chicken.

Due to rain, my grilled Greek Chicken became baked and broiled Greek Chicken, but it still came out great all the same. I prepared a batch for the week to serve over Greek salad, rice, and alongside grilled (or now soon to be roasted) veggies.

You simply marinate the chicken for several hours (or overnight).

And then bake or grill it up!

Sprint the Block Workout

Sometimes you just want a workout that’s going to leave you feeling like this.

I promise you this workout delivers.  The sweat was dripping, I was huffing and puffing and all under 30 minutes.  Because who’s got time for an hour long workout?!  As a mom, I don’t!

I also firmly believe that shorter, intense workouts are more effective at burning fat than longer, steady workouts.  So bottom lime, if you’re gonna workout for less time then you better bust that booty!!

For some distance reference, my “block” is 1/3 of a mile.  I tried sprinting the entire block on my first round, however I found myself jogging and not fully sprinting.  I then realized to make it a true sprint workout I would only sprint 30 seconds out and 30 seconds back.

For the strength portion of the workout you can do this either in your driveway, on your stoop, on your lawn or tucked away in the privacy of your garage or home if you don’t want the neighbors thinking you’re a crazy person.
