Day 51 Success!

As promised, I went for the C25K run/walk, accompanied by our youngest, who's 15. She was great company! We covered 2.2 miles in 33 minutes.

For dinner, we had chicken tortilla soup, which was mostly the soup, without many tortillas! Not shown in the pic is the two Tbsp of shredded cheese and the small handful of mini tortilla chips crumbled on top. YUM!!

Ingredients in the soup:

4 skinless boneless chicken breasts, diced
1 medium sweet onion, diced
1 red and 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
3 Anaheim peppers, finely diced
2 Jalapenos, finely diced
2 containers of Jack's fresh salsa: one Wild Mild and one Medium
3 quarts of organic chicken stock
3 Tbsp olive oil to saute' the onion and peppers

Basically, saute the onions, add the peppers, stir for a minute or two. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer an hour.

Top will a bit of shredded cheese and a few crumbled tortilla chips. Salt & pepper to taste.

Objectives met with this recipe:
good fat (olive oil)
anti-inflammatory food (Anaheim and jalapeno peppers)
