21 Day Fix Extreme Recipe: Chicken Fajitas

Matt and I are officially on Day 6 of the 21 Day Fix Extreme!  We are absolutely loving the workouts and we are beyond sore this week!  Sore definitely means that its working but hot dog it's hard to push thru that muscle soreness!  We are drinking lots of water, biofreeze on sore muscles and an Epsom salt bath is in my future tonight after Dirty 30 Extreme!  But I'm not complaining because anytime your body is sore from a workout it means that it's challenging your body in a whole new way.  I will take it!!!

We are also experimenting with the recipes on the Fix Extreme and so far there has not been 1 recipe that we haven't loved!  We made the chicken Fajitas on Sunday  night and we actually made extra so we would have lunch for Monday.  Not only was it really delicious, it made great leftovers too!  This is something you could make in bulk and portion out for the entire week and have lunches for a few days.  If you have non clean eaters in your family you can still do the chicken fajitas but just give everyone else shells to use instead of lettuce!  

So please put this in rotation, it's quite awesome!  Make sure to let me know what you think!
