Light BBQ Chicken, Cheddar and Pineapple Tostadas are full of flavor and light on calories. Crunchy tostadas are topped with tender chicken, juicy pineapple, zesty BBQ sauce and melted cheddar for a filling and flavorful meal. I love a hearty meal such as these tostadas that are wholesome comfort food, but not nutritionally bankrupt. I particularly love the bits of cheese and BBQ sauce that bake on the edges and become caramelized.
After the last few weeks of indulging in fondue at The Melting Pot, cake and wine at the wedding and all of the other quick and unhealthy meals, it’s time for more easy and healthy meals like these tostadas. Along with some healthy meals, it is time to get back to the gym for some racquetball after work with my co-worker and volleyball in the evenings with the ladies. I wish my entire workout routine could consist of just playing sports.
I hate sitting at the gym on an ellliptical or treadmill grinding away hoping to get your calorie burn in sooner than later. When I play racquetball for an hour, time flies by and at the end I have burned close to 1,000 calories. It doesn’t get any better than that! Too bad I can’t find more people to play with. I don’t think it is a very popular sport with my generation thought, which is a shame because it is a great sport you can enjoy all your life. Have you ever played racquetball or an unusual sport that you can’t find people to play with?
