David Goggins

This morning I learned of one of my newest inspirations from my partners in my Volley fitness group. David Goggins is one of the world’s best endurance athletes. He is also a genius as a motivational speaker and as the author of countless thought provoking quotes.

These are a small sample of David Goggins quotes. These ones spoke to me personally in a big way so they are the ones that I chose to share.

“Nobody cares about yesterday.  What have you done today to better yourself?” – David Goggins

“When you look in the mirror, that’s the one person you cannot lie to.” – David Goggins

“I don’t stop when I’m tired.  I stop when I’m done.” – David Goggins

“Every day do something that makes you uncomfortable.” – David Goggins

“Success is based on your willingness to work your ass off no matter what obstacles are in your way.” – David Goggins

“I thought I’d solved a problem when really I was creating new ones by taking the path of least resistance.” – David Goggins

“Don’t limit expectations of yourself and settle for anything less than what you are truly capable of.” – David Goggins

“Most people who doubt you doubt you because they can never see themselves doing what you are trying to do.” – David Goggins

That is it for today. Take care and have a great day!💞🤗

January 14th – Mexican Air Fry

This month on my blog, I am sharing a meal or a dish that we indulge in each day. I am not a professional cook by any means and it was never about creating a collection of recipes. This is simply me keeping it real. This is how and what we eat on a day to day basis – because that is a reflection of who we are. In words better than mine…

“Food is our common ground, a universal experience. – James Beard

“We all eat, and it would be a sad waste of time to eat badly.” – Anna Thomas

“Food may be essential as fuel for the body, but good food is fuel for the soul.” – Malcom Forbes

“Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate.” – Alan D. Wolfet

That last quote reminds me of son Dan who has always loved food – eating it, preparing it, and serving it to family and friends. From the youngest age, he would say “It is always good because you put love in it.” (Unless it was fish sticks. There was never enough love to save fish sticks. 🙄)

Last night, we did not have fish sticks. I took out the T-fal Air Frier and made Mexican Air Fry. I began by cubing a couple of chicken breasts, sprinkling them with olive oil and taco seasoning, and air frying them for twenty minutes. I transferred the cooked chicken to a bown and moved on to step two.

For step two, I sliced a tortilla shell into strips, spread the strips in the air frier, sprinkled them with olive oil and a bit of taco seasoning. I air fried the seasoned strips for about ten minutes. I had to stop the process a couple of times to re-spread the strips. (They want to pile up.)

While the tortilla strips were cooking, I prepared the vegetables for step three – red onion, red pepper, fresh mushrooms, pickled jalapenos, and black olives.

Once the tortilla strips came out of the air-frier, I put in the vegetables with a little sprinkle of olive oil and a bit of taco seasoning. I cooked the vegetables for six minutes and then added the cooked chicken from step one and about three tablespoons of hot salsa. I cooked for a further six minutes, before transferring to a bowl and topping with crispy tortilla strips.

Ready to serve!

I cooked rice to serve with our main dish. I was concerned it could be a strange combination but it worked well – even with soya sauce on the rice. 👍

That is it for today. Take care and have a great day!
