  Chicken Enchilada Recipe I know my picture isn't fancy, and almost forgot to take one after everyone devoured this. It has been pinned as a must repeat :)  I tweaked some things that I think add that much more flavor! This made a full casserole dish of enchiladas easily feeding 6-8 people and perfect for my kinda cooking... the kind where you eat leftovers and don't cook every night :) Healthy-ish Chicken Enchiladas 1.5 lbs chicken thighs 1.5 cups salsa or about half a jar 1 can of diced tomatoes, no salt added (15.5 ounces, do not drain) 1/2 cup of salsa 1/2 large onion, diced 1/2 cup fat free plain yogurt 10-20 yellow corn tortillas 1 tsp olive oil 2 cups of Monterrey jack cheese, shredded 1 packet of stevia 1 tsp of fine sea salt For the most tender chicken, I cook it in the crock pot. 4 hours on high with half a jar of salsa on top. Take chicken out and shred to put inside enchiladas.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a saucepan over medium heat

A little more about my story.... When did you realize you would overeat/eat unhealthy foods when you were overwhelmed? Food had been my go-to for comfort since I was very young. In an effort to stuff down feelings of overwhelm, food was what I turned to. It was a distraction from whatever I should be accomplishing. It was also a sign of giving up. I had always strived to eat healthy foods and when the cravings hit for whatever I had been telling myself not to eat, I overate it to punish myself. I would eat until I felt numb. I would continue until I couldn’t breathe. It would turn into a “last supper” because starting tomorrow, I would only eat healthy foods and no more sweets.

I had struggled for as long as I can remember doubting I'd ever find freedom and hope in my own health. What motivated you to take control of your own fitness & health? When I was newly postpartum, I was in a rut when it came to losing the baby weight. I had let myself down by not having that “healthy active pregnancy” I hoped I would. It spiraled into apathy and reckless eating. Once I was able to work on losing the extra pounds, I was in a negative head space. I was already mad at myself for throwing in the towel on any pursuit of a healthy pregnancy. I also had a long history of emotional eating and food had controlled me unless I was restricting it and te
