Workout Submission Saturday - Week 7

Submission Saturday!

Hopefully you've been inspired to share your MyPlate with everyone. Remember half the fight is in the kitchen. Here's a little tid-bit of information just to prove my point:

According to the November issue of the public Health Nutrition, people consume 200 more calories when they eat out as opposed to having home-cooked meals. Researchers also found that diners in both fast-food and sit-down restaurants upped their intake of saturated fat and sodium.

As for myself this week, while I couldn't make a cooking video of this creation: here it is - Chicken Pilaf. Now the way I did it was using a Tajikan recipe somewhat similar to what I found here. 
The only difference was that I used chicken thighs, had onion, and added in turmeric.
This took lots of time to prepare and cook, but all that work paid off to nearly five meals I could spread out throughout the week.

Now even though this week was dedicated to getting active in the kitchen, that's no excuse to stop getting work in and burning those calories. Share what you've done this week.
Share your submission today!
