P90X meals

So my husband had this great idea to start P90X together.  Really realistic for a 5 month prego, I know.  I think I made it through about 1.5 days of Tony driving me insane, then gave up and went back to bed.  But one thing that I have gotten into is cooking using the P90X cookbook.  I've always tried to be conscious about what I eat, but the first trimester was just a blur of Titos Tacos and Taco Bell 5 layer burritos.  I knew once I was out of the crazy 1st trimester lack-of-self-control-phase I needed to eat a whole lot better.  Mostly because I don't want to give birth to a 12 pound burrito.  

So for the past few weeks I have followed the P90X meal guidelines as best as I could, and we have had some mighty delicious meals that would make good old Tony proud.

For breakfast we really love egg white omlets with mushrooms, tomatoes, green onions, and mozzarella

For lunch I usually do a whole wheat tortilla wrap with motzzerella, turkey, cucumbers, tomatoes, green onions, lettuce, and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette

I've also loved pita bread with shredded chicken, dill, tomatoes, and cucumbers

Dinners have been a little more labor intensive, but have been reeeeally good and full of flavor.

turkey (cut fresh from the deli) with gravy from scratch, green beans, strawberry salad, and peaches

wild rice, green beans, salad, sauteed mushroom, apples, and butternut squash soup

salmon with fresh dill sauce, wild rice, and strawberry salad

beef and broccoli stir fry, quinoa, strawberries, pumpernickel bread, and miso soup

Don't get me wrong, there have been some frozen pizzas sprinkled here and there, but for the most part we have done pretty well!  It's a good thing I got this post in here before Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  Because I'm sure I'll be singing a different tune then... 


  1. Ooh, good stuff. I try to eat really healthy too (still have 10 pounds of baby weight to shed) but I really get stuck in a rut sometimes, so thanks for the great ideas!!!

  2. your husband is a lucky man :) hahaha i am still mastering pasta dishes....

  3. Philip and I did P90X together for a while. Most of the time I wanted to punch Tony in the face. But hey, it is a good workout.

    And all your meals look DELISH!

  4. That is so funny! My hubs decided to order and start P90X while I was preggo with my first also! I liked the food also! It really teaches/or in our case reinforces good portion sizes and healthy eating!


  5. I am impressed, especially considering that we had grilled cheese for dinner last night... at 10pm. I feel fat.

  6. Looks delicious for healthy lose weight/stay fit meals! Wow, I'm impressed, I might just have to take a closer look at P90X. Great post, thanx!


  7. I love finding creative ways to have a flavorful healthy meals. Who said healthy eating had to taste bad! I will have to check out that shredded chicken :)

  8. I also did P90X for a while too. It just got too much for me. Now I am living the Paleo lifestyle an it has been so great. No need for exercise and I have almost gotten to my goal weight! It has really changed my life. You should check it out.

  9. Wow everything looks delicious! I need to get me and Fiancee in eating well mode. Its sooo hard with school though

  10. WAOOW your new layout is super-duper cool! Love the stripes :) It matches the shirt I'm wearing right now, haha!
    The meals look delicious!

  11. I have a hard time restricting my diet, so I just make sure to counter it with exercise and healthy meals when I can. Last night I discovered that red lentils + taco seasoning= taco meat. It's been a revelation. It's a good thing too because we're having belgium waffles for dinner tonight!

  12. Wow just looking at your pictures made my stomach rumble. It all looks so yummy!!

  14. Fantastic photos of some awesome looking dishes.

    I have been doing P90X for nearly two years and have to constantly come up with new ways to create healthy meals. I think that the meal idea that you have above need to be added to my list.

    My wife is also annoyed with Tony Horton and has banished me to the garage while doing my workouts...oh well, at least I am usually uninterupted.

    P90X is one of the tough 12 week work out program, but the results typically speak for themselves. I hope that you are sticking with it!
