“Healthy” Fajitas

fajitas

So I love me some Mexican food but when you drench everything in gobs of cheese and green chili, things can get a bit  unhealthy. Here is my “healthy version of fajitas!” …. man I love fajitas

You’ll Need:

  • Steak or chicken, cut into strips.
  • Green, yellow, red bell peppers
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 onion
  • Big Romaine lettuce leafs
  • Guacamole ( or make your own with about 1 avocado)
  • Salsa (the hotter the better!! YUM)
  • Low fat cheese (optional)
  • Fajita seasoning

How to:

  1. Heat skillet on medium and put a tablespoon of olive oil in skillet
  2. Cut up peppers and onion into strips. Put into skillet and sauté’. Once they are getting soft add meat strips.
  3. Sprinkle fajita seasoning in mixture.
  4. Place 3 romaine leafs on plate (these are your “taco shells” and spread guacamole in bottom of “shell”
  5. Once mixture is cooked, place an even amount of meat and peppers into each “shell”
  6. Top with salsa and cheese. Serve!
  7. Enjoy!

Healthy options at Chili’s Restaurant

YAY CHILIS IS SO GOOD! What do you eat? What’s healthy, what look healthy and what really isn’t….. They do have a menu which is “guiltless” which is supposed to be “healthier options”.. but we will look into that too….

Umm so Lets just say all their appetizers are around 1,000 calories along lol. So maybe we should all just pass on that. The chips with salsa is 480, so that would be your best bet if you really wanted one.

So now that we’ve decided all the appetizers aren’t really that great… on to the actual meals!

  • Guiltless Grill Asian Salad
  • Guiltless Grill Caribbean Salad
  • Southwestern Vegetable Soup
  • Chicken And Green Chili
  • Grilled Salmon with Garlic and Herbs
  • The grilled Chicken Fajitas aren’t bad but only if you skip on the tortillas , or see if you can get big lettuce wraps instead.
  • Guiltless classic Sirloin
  • Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Veggies
  • Mango Chili Tilapia

Don’t get anything fried or beer-battered

The ribs (which is what they are famous for) – No go!

The burgers- Not so much

The Perfect Chipotle Salad

So I personally think this is the perfect salad.. around 400 calories.. and packed with protein.

chipol

Romaine Lettuce

Black Beans

Fajita veggies

Brown Rice (ask them to go light on the rice)

Tomato Salsa

Guacamole

And if you want it spicier … The green salsa only has 15 calories! Plus they have tobacco! YUMM (I like the Milder Jalapeno)
