Growing up losing weight was the last thing on my mind, no I was never a skinny girl but I had leisure of time on my hand to take care of myself. I enjoyed a very let’s say self-centered fun teenage years, everything was about me and around me. What I ate, what I wore, how I looked, what grades I got… It was always about me. After graduating, I started working in the fashion industry and once again looks took the lead. I can say I took great care of myself back then and extra weight was never an issue. Flash Forward, I got married and started a beautiful and real life, a life where I learn to live for others, keep their need ahead of mine, a life that gave a new meaning to my life and made my life more beautiful than I could have ever imagine.
But along the way as most of us I too ignored myself and started gaining the weight, I still managed to look good and always found an excuse for my weight gain. I am now 35 and I am not ready to give away my skinny jeans or huff and puff chasing my kids; so it is the time for change; it’s time to get healthy and get back into those jeans! I don’t believe in dieting, I have done them and I hate them; Period. The key to healthy weight and body is a lifestyle change. I am not the one who can give up pizza or cake, it just won’t work. Moderation is the key and not deprivation; yes want to enjoy my cakes and look good!
So from this post on-wards I will be sharing the nutritional value of the recipes I will post, most of the recipes you find here are good for you but I will share those sinful and decadents recipes too along with their nutritional information, making it easier for you to balance it out. I hope you will find this helpful.
Today I am sharing delicious and easy Maple Lime Chicken Skewers. This recipe is a hit at my home; from kids to adults everyone loves them. I like to use chicken thigh here as they are far more juicy and tasty but if you want you can use chicken breast too. Serve them as an appetizers or main course, these Maple Lime Chicken Skewers are always a hit!
