Steak Lettuce Wraps! AMAZING!!

21 Day Fix Extreme Recipe: Chicken Fajitas

I made this recipe for dinner today! It for sure is my favorite recipe! I normally eat my tacos with tortillas, but I did not miss them at all! Lettuce wraps are my new favorite way to eat tacos!! Best part is this is an amazing meal that is super healthy! I am not on a diet, I am learning how to live a healthy lifestyle!!

I have officially completed one week of the 21 Day Fix Extreme! And I must say, my muscles have been sore in places I didn’t even know existed before I did this program!!! I am really loving the workouts though, they really push me past my comfort zone. But hey, I’m not complaining, because when my muscles are sore, I know that my body is getting stronger and working hard.

As for the nutrition on the 21 Day Fix Extreme, I am pleasantly surprised yet again!!! Here I was thinking that I was going to be hungry all the time, and cravings some serious carbs, but instead, I feel just right and completely satisfied every single day! All I do is eat!! I love the recipes that come with the nutrition guide. There are so many you can try, and I’ve been making a lot of them! Honestly, I have yet to find one I don’t love. My next recipe I am so excited to try is Hearty Beef and Butternut Squash Stew!!
