It’s been a while since I put up one of my quick-n-dirty, four-ingredients-or-less recipes. So let me show you what I had for dinner one night last week and then give you a WOD that will fry your butt into a crispy wonton.
Chicken Romaine Tacos
- Fresh, all natural or free range chicken tenders
- Romaine lettuce leaves
- Sriracha mustard (I use Kroger sweet hot mustard)
- Mayonnaise (I use Duke’s Olive Oil Mayo in the squirt bottle)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Spray a nonstick frying pan (or griddle) with oil and turn on medium heat. Put chicken on, salt and pepper liberally, and set timer for 4 mins. While chicken is cooking, rinse lettuce leaves and pat dry. When timer beeps, flip chicken, salt and pepper liberally, and set timer for 3 mins. Wash, peel, decorate and slice cucumbers to suit your fancy. When timer beeps again, check the fattest tender with a meat thermometer and make sure it says 155 F. If it does, put chicken on a plate to rest and reach 160 F (2 or 3 mins). While you wait, put a stripe each of mustard and mayo in each leaf and put a fan of cukes on each plate. When the chicken has rested, slide a tender or two into each leaf and you’re ready to eat.
The Fried Wontons WOD
- Weights — 5 x 10 of Shrugs, Squat Press, Sit-ups, Goblet Squats
- Calisthenics — AMSAYC* in 8 mins of 8 ea. Staggered Push-ups, Side Crunch, Zombie Squats, Full Stop Push-ups, and Twisters. If you don’t get through 5 sets in 8 mins, tack on 100 Squats.
- Kicks — Heavy bag Strike Count Drill. 4 x 1:00/:30 AMAYC* with Right Leg Roundhouse. If strike count for 4th round is less than the 1st, do 100 Squats. Repeat with Left Leg Roundhouse. Again, if strike count for 4th round is less than 1st, do 100 Squats.
- After this you should pretty much be fried crispy.
* AMSAYC = “As many sets as you can” and AMAYC = “As many as you can.”
Your comment is awaiting moderation.
The prophetess of the 2nd Key sits between the pillars of Mercy and Severity, and her wisdom lies in knowing when to be severe and when to be merciful (with oneself and others). This oscillation is like breathing, and breathing is life. Cessation of respiration is death. I advise breathing life and respiration into your “dead” regimen. You might have some 20 min days, some 1 hour days, the occasional 90 minute day, and some days off. And two weeks per year you should do absolutely nothing but eat, sleep, and veg out.
My regimen: Temple rites (LBRP, LUX, and meditation) 7 days/week at dawn. Fall & Winter I train once/day and take off Thurs & Sun. Spring I take off Sun only and work out twice on Sat (one AM and one PM). Ditto for Summer except no Sat doubles. Workouts are about an hour, longer on Fri and Sat, shorter on Weds. Full week off between Christmas and New Years, another full week around July 4th, and sometimes a third week off around Labor Day.
I do not claim to be all-wise, so please take or leave this info. I hope not, but I admit the possibility that I could be completely full of shit. Have a great weekend!
