What up? Who else doesn’t believe today is really Thursday? That 4th of July middle of the week holiday got me. But I’m not complaining. Usually on Thursdays I talk about really great people in my life, but today, I wanted to share this little recipe Daniel made for me… last week, I think! I can’t believe I almost forgot to tell you about it. 

He got home from the gym before I did, and he told me that he watched Brooke Ence’s vlog and surprised me with a recipe he saw on it. And that’s pretty cool because he knows that I love her. He got the idea from Stacy, a friend of our’s who also happens to work with Daniel, and she let me train her for awhile.  Stacyyyyyyy, I miss you. Come workout with us again soon. 

Back to the food…

The recipe is actually from Working Against Gravity, who you’ve probably heard of if you’ve looked for some accountability when it comes to counting your macros (proteins, fats, carbs). 

Brooke Ence has a video that gives you step by step instructions on how to make it. It’s really easy. And if you know me, you know that she’s one of my favorite people that I don’t know. She’s so freaking strong, she’s beautiful, she’s hilarious, and I love her confidence. And I can’t wait to see her competing at 100% again one day soon. 

Anyway, back to the food…for real… It was so flippin’ good. It was a good bit spicy though, so maybe we outdid ourselves on the chili pepper. We did without the pineapple juice, but I bet we missed out. I’m also not a huge sriacha fan (don’t judge me) but Daniel can eat enough for both of us. 

And if you’re not into spicy, or pineapple, or coconut, or chicken, you can still check out the video, because it’s less than 5 minutes, and it won’t take up too much of your time. 

And below is the recipe from Working Against Gravity’s site. The ingredient amounts are broken down in a way that can help people best count their macros for this particular meal. So, if you could care less about grams and all that jazz, just watch the video, watch what Brooke does, and it’s pretty easy to eye the amount she uses for each ingredient. 

Makes 4-5 servings. 

Total time: About 40-45 minutes

 I think we overdid it on the cilantro...

And there ya have it. It’s super easy. We ate our’s over cauliflower rice (duh), but regular white rice will work, or you can eat it plain. Shoutout to Daniel for thinking of me and for going out of his way to make it for me. And shoutout to Brooke Ence for vlogging the process. I’m a visual learner, and videos are way better than written out directions.
