3 Recipes Perfect For Summer
Our beliefs about the way we should eat are the exact same as how we should train.
Consistency is everything.
Every single one of us needs to find something that works for us and that something needs to be sustainable.
In a world of fad diets, cuts, macronutrient elimination diets, and super strict eating schedules, we don’t believe in, or promote any of that.
What we do promote is simple and consistent nutrition tips and resources that can be easily implemented into your lifestyle and sustained long term, for long lasting results.
One of the ways we do this is by providing our members with weekly nutrition recipes. Every week, Coach Molly releases a fresh, nutritious recipe to our members. We think it’s safe to say she has a solid fan base of people who tag her on instagram weekly with the recipes they’re brewing up at home.
As we’re gearing up for some warmer weather and activities, we thought it was the perfect time to hand select a few of our community favorite Summer recipes and share them with you.
Balsamic Peach Chicken Kabobs
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
- 1 lb/450 grams chicken thighs
- 4 peaches/540 grams without the pit
- 1 ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- 1 tbsp fresh basil finely chopped
- Cut your chicken thighs into large chunks. (If you cut them too small the chicken can dry out)
- Toss the chicken in a large ziploc bag with (¼ cup balsamic vinegar, 2 tbsp olive oil, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp ground ginger, and 1 tbsp finely chopped basil). Squeeze out excess air and zip the bag closed. Use your fingers to massage the marinade evenly around the chicken. Let sit for at least 30 minutes, flipping the bag over occasionally
- Slice peaches into large chunks (approximately 8 pieces per peach or approximately the same size as your chicken)
- Skewer your peaches and chicken
- Preheat grill to medium heat
- Place your kabobs on the grill. Grill for 5 -7 minutes, flip, and grill the other side for another 5-7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. (If your grill runs hot you may want to do less time or lower the heat. We don’t want to char the kabobs!)
- While the chicken is grilling, start making your balsamic glaze. To make the glaze, add 1 cup balsamic vinegar to a small pot. Heat until boiling. Reduce heat to low once it’s boiling. You’ll end up with small bubbles around the perimeter as it gently simmers. Let it continue simmering for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. It can burn quickly so keep an eye on it. Once it’s reduced and thickened, remove from heat. Drizzle over finished kabobs as you’re plating
