Brunson Phillip & a new recipe to start my journey

Hi everyone, I am excited to say that starting today Little Blue Dress is up and running. 
December 2nd we welcomed our sweet little boy into this world and every second has been an amazing adventure. I didn't have the easiest labor so needless to say the recovery has taken a little bit longer than most but every time I look at my son it was totally worth it. Now that he is almost 5 weeks old I have decided it is time to start gaining back muscle and really focus on living life as healthy as possible. Now since I am nursing I can't cut back on calories, plus that never works for me anyways, but I can say goodbye to all the fatty foods that I craved while I was pregnant. I am not looking to lose the weight today or even this month because I understand that it took nine months to put on the weight so it's not going to just fall off. I have many goals this year and I plan to share them all with you. I will be sharing my healthy recipes, my workouts, and of course, life with Brunson. 

So I thought the best way to start off this new journey and New Year would be to share a NEW recipe. I like to call it my slow cooker fiesta chicken.

What you will need:
chicken breast
1/3 less fat cream cheese
peppers (green,yellow,red)
shredded mexican cheese

Start by putting your non cooked chicken, cream cheese and salsa into your crock pot. Then add a cup of water. Set on low and let cook for 4 hours

About 20 minutes before the chicken is ready, in a large skillet add 1 T of extra virgin olive oil, chopped peppers and onions. Saute.
Also go ahead and cook your quinoa as well.

After about 3 1/2 hours your chicken will be very tender and easy to shred.

Once everything is ready, top you quinoa with your chicken, peppers, onions and then finish it off with shredded cheese and avocado. Serve immediately.

Looking forward to this coming year and experiencing a lot of first and 

and getting back to my healthy self.
