Food: Dinner Tonight – Pineapple, BBQ Chicken, Quinoa

I’ve switched gears, just like that, regarding eating less comfort food and more healthy meals. Yes, the weather has been unusually freezing in San Francisco, with the weirdest of storms passing over the city. But my body is in Spring-Summer mode I think and it is craving more veggies, and less starch – so the meal planning begins to satisfy my cravings. Yes folks, the family usually works around my clock – in terms of food. 😉

So, here we go – tonight’s dinner


    • 2 pounds  boneless skinless chicken breasts
    •  cups BBQ sauce, homemade or store-bought (if using store-bought, I like Primal Kitchens BBQ Sauce)
    • 2 tablespoon pineapple juice
    • juice from 2 limes
    • 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
    • 2 jalapeños, chopped, and seeded if desired
    • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
    • kosher salt and pepper
    • 3 cups cooked quinoa or rice  – OR in my case, I prefer cauliflower rice over quinoa
    • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 1/2 cup fresh basil, and or cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
    • 5 cups shredded romaine lettuce
    • 1 avocado, sliced
    • 4 fresh chives, chopped
    • fried garlic for serving (optional)  {more}

On another note – what TV shows are you binge-watching right now? I’ve been watching Flaked on Netflix 

A pretty great show about a recovering alcoholic who’s favorite words “I’m sorry” seems to not do him justice.
