Tasty Tuesday’s A Tex Mex Experience

Well, when I say Tex Mex I kind of mean more Fajita’s and when I say Fajita’s I really mean Fajita Quiche….. 😉

This is another recipe I have taken from my friend Saga Gardevärn, the lovely lady at Live Fit Die Yum and changed it a little to suit my palette but you are welcome to do the same.

So then, let me tell you a little more about the Fajita Quiche….

Rub some Olive Oil around the baking dish to enable the quiche to release after cooking then place the pieces of chopped and browned chicken in the bottom of the dish.

Looking at the figures you might be forgiven for thinking that I had had a bad day on Sunday but the high calories and the high fats come from the fact that there was Cashew nuts and Mackerel fillets on the menu, two very high calorie and high fat content foods although still very healthy with healthy fats and clean calories so all in all the day was actually quite good. Add this to the fact it also coincided with a 7 mile walk, I think we had any excess covered 😉

Yesterday was actually a rest day although I did manage a walk in the morning first thing even though it was raining…Archie and I set off in the rain and managed to get a fair walk going even in the foul weather covering over 4 miles. My Map My Walk should that we made good progress and telling me we were exercising for just under an hour and fifteen minutes.

So this walk added to my activity for the day put me at a total of nearly 17,000 steps for the day, once again smashing my daily target.

So all in all a good day for a rest day. Come back in the morning for a report on my next trip to the gym 🙂

‘Till tomorrow.

Stay out of the fridge.
