Feta Chicken Veggie Wrap

The most consistent thing about my meal preparation is that I'm very inconsistent. I don't ever use recipes and I never write anything down. I am basically the queen of "wing it" (this also applies to so many aspects of my life but that's a whole different blog post) TONIGHT though, tonight I break the cycle. At least, for tonight ;)

I was eager to use my findings from the farmers market and incorporate them into a meal for myself and my family. I have not eliminated meat from my diet although it IS something I would ultimately like to achieve one day. So, I decided to have chicken for my meat and use some peppers from my garden and the zucchini I obtained at the market. I chopped up the veggies and places them in a skillet with my chicken and about a tablespoon of coconut oil. 

I chopped up some fresh chives with my kitchen shears which I absolutely love for chopping fresh herbs. 

The process was really pretty basic from that point. Once the chicken was cooked I sliced it up lengthwise. I do it that way for appearances, I just think it "looks" good. 

I have hated salad all if my life and if I have to eat it to obtain the nutrients my body needs I have come to terms with that. These leafy greens are fresh arugula leaves I got at the market. Arugula has a little bit of flavor to it so it's more bearable than iceberg ever will be for me. 

Those are my sautéed veggies. This consists of tomato, green pepper, red pepper, zucchini, a little garlic, cilantro, and a slight dash of salt. 

Then I basically just made wraps. I ate one and a half and I was STUFFED. These are whole grain tortillas - not sure of the brand but I can look it up... 

After layering everything up I just sprinkled some feta cheese on top and nom, nom, nom. 

Easy peasy. I don't do it any other way during the week. The only side note I might make for future reference is that I need some more FLAVA! I sprinkled Chili Powder on the chicken while it was cooking but I need a vinegarette or something to put on all of it.
