Crispy Baked Chicken Tenders.

I'll just start off by saying these are probably my best creation yet. Who doesn't love chicken tenders? You can enjoy these without sacrificing your fitness goals!

What you'll need:
1 package of organic chicken tenders
1/4 cup hummus of your choice
1/4 cup egg whites
1/2 cup almonds
2 handfuls of Mary's Gone Crackers (THE BEST <3)
Salt/pepper/spices of your choice (I use salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder)

In a large bowl combine hummus and egg whites. Stir until you have a creamy consistency. Go ahead and place your chicken strips into the mixture. I let the chicken marinate for about 30 minutes, it adds extra flavor. However, that's optional! 

For the "breading" place almonds, crackers, and seasoning/spices into a food processor. Pulse until you have a coarse mixture. Do not over pulse.

Once the chicken strips have marinated, coat them in the "breading" mixture. 

Bake for 45 minutes at 400 degrees or until crispy!

What I eat in a day!

A lot of people ask me about meal plans but I really don't follow a plan. I eat 5 meals a day, which are minimally processed, and sometimes dessert! You guys can see what I ate throughout the day and maybe get some new meal ideas :)

Meal One was Oatmeal(and NO, not Quaker or something doused in sugar. I prefer plain grain by Three Sisters), with blueberries, half a banana, 1 tbsp almond butter, and raw coconut flakes.

Meal Two was a Perfect Fit Protein Bar! These are so delicious!! They are available online!

Meal Three was one egg, two egg whites, a slice of yogurt cheese, 1/4 an avocado, and mango hot sauce on an Ezekiel English muffin.

Meal Four was 1 cup of non-fat greek yogurt with 1/3 cup KIND granola and two dates.

Meal Five was a hummus crusted chicken breast, 1/2 cup long-grain brown rice, and a tomato/cucumber salad with feta cheese!
