Pico De Gallo Recipe

I usually make this pico de gallo every few days, store in the fridge and add to EVERYTHING I eat. Egg tacos, chicken, beef, fish, rice, quinoa, salads seriously… EVERYTHING. I love it and it’s a major staple in my house. Now that I’m watching calories, I love it even more because it’s a giant flavor boost to simple dishes, is low in calories and high in vitamins. Lots of bang for your buck! Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sized tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 of a medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp diced red bell peppers
  • 1 tbsp diced green bell peppers
  • 1 tbsp diced garlic
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • squish of lime

Method
Chop it up & Mix it up man! Easy as pie.

Week 1 Day 1 – 10 week cut

Training Log

Running – 1 mile:
Today is Day 1 of my fat cut. I’m excited! So excited in fact that I went out on a run this morning with my dog… Just for fun! WOAH! (if you don’t know, I typically loath running and will find any excuse NOT to do it… so this kinda a big deal). I tracked the run when I got back and it was exactly 1 mile – which is kinda exciting. I might do this run as a regular thing and see how I can progress on it over the next 10 weeks.

1 mile run review: Not that hard. Didn’t take that long. Dog loved it. Will run again 😉

Then…
3/4 mile Ruck – 6 bricks in my backpack. Harder than expected! Gonna be a little sore in the traps from this I think. Might need to get a better backpack so I can support the weight on my hips rather than my back.
