Baked Hard Boiled Eggs!

I bet you didn’t know you could bake hard boiled eggs right!!

You can!

So… preheat your oven to 375 degrees. In a muffin tin, put one egg in each muffin tin. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. When they come out of the oven place them in a big bowl of cool water to cool down. I then store these in an air tight container in my fridge and pull them out when I need them for lunches or snacks. Super easy and less fuss than boiling a pot of water! Set it and forget it… until the oven time goes off:)

***If you are following the 21 Day Fix, 2 hard boiled eggs counts as 1 Red Container! ****

Turkey Meatloaf

This healthy turkey meatloaf is one of my favorites! It is filling, delicious and the recipe makes lots so that you have enough to freeze!

IMG_20160222_172618

Ingredients

2.5 lbs of ground turkey

4 egg whites

1.5 to 2 cups of salsa (fresh salsa would be best!)

3-4 cups of shredded fresh spinach

Instructions

  1. Combine the meat and egg whites in a big bowl. Then add the salsa slowly until you get a good consistency that is sticky!
  2. Fold in the diced spinach. Now at this point I normally take half the mixture out and put it on one side of the double layer pan as my husband doesn’t like spinach. Then I fold the spinach in and make my second loaf with spinach for me!
  3. This recipe does make enough for two loaves and it is best if you put it on a double layer pan so the grease can drip down and away from the meat.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes on 350 degrees. Take it out and cover with tin foil and then place back in the oven for 30 more minutes. Each oven is a bit different so cut through a piece and make sure it is cooked through after the full hour.

Easy Skillet Casserole

This recipe is what I would call “cleaner” eating! It is not 100% clean eating recipe but it is very healthy, filling, and hearty. Also feel free to season this with whatever seasonings you like on your food!

Ingredients

Onion- chopped up (1/4 of the onion)

Peppers- whichever color you prefer, chopped up

Spinach or Zucchini- chopped up (1/4 cup)

Any other vegetable you would like to put in

1 lb of ground Turkey

1 1/2 Cups or Brown Rice, or whole wheat pasta ( If i use pasta I use the no yolk whole wheat pasta just because they cook faster)

1 can of low sodium, Light tomato soup

Paprika

Garlic powder

 

Instructions

  1.  Chop all the veggies, so onion, peppers, spinach, zucchini, broccoli, etc. You can really use whichever vegetables you like for this. In a skillet fry them up with a little bit of olive oil over medium heat.  Season lightly with garlic powder and paprika! This would take about 4 minutes to lightly fry the veggies with the seasoning.
  2. Add in your defrosted 1 lb of ground turkey. Cook and brown up the turkey with the veggies until the ground turkey is fully cooked, again over medium heat. It looks white when it is done.
  3. Then add in your can of  light, low sodium tomato soup and then 1 can of water. Add in your rice or your pasta which every you are doing.
  4. Stir it well. Then cover and let simmer over low heat until rice or pasta is cooked and the consistency thickens up a bit.

Optional- if you want when it is done, remove from heat and sprinkle with a little bit of shredded cheese.

This makes a nice hearty meal that is still healthy! When I do this I normally prepare some frozen veggies to have on the side as the amount of veggies that will be in one serving of this is not enough to count as 1 Green Container when on the 21 Day Fix. My fix containers that I count one serving of this to be is 1 Yellow, 1 Red, 1 Green (with my mixed veggies), 1/4 Blue if I use a sprinke of cheese. (The tomato soup technically doesn’t fall in the 21 Day Fix so this would be an extra. An alternative would be to use crushed tomatoes instead of the soup mix)

 

 

Easy Home Workout Circuit

If you are looking for an easy home workout that will also leave you good and sweaty.home workout circuit

If you want more of a challenge, instead of jumping jacks try star jumps! It is more of a plyo metric move and will up the intensity level. If you need to tone it down, just step out to each side and do the low impact version of a jumping jack! Make it your own. Turn  on your music and burn some calories!!

What is a Beachbody Coach

What is a Beachbody coach?! This is a question that I love to answer because I love coaching!

The time I got to meet Autumn at Super Saturday!
The time I got to meet Autumn at Super Saturday!

So here is what a Beachbody coach IS!

  • Someone who is passionate about health, fitness, and nutrition.
  • Someone who loves to help people and support people.
  • Someone who is looking to start a home business based on helping people get fit in the comfort of their homes.
  • Someone who is willing to learn
  • Someone who wants to be a part of a team that all works together
  • Someone who wants to travel!

Here is what a Beachbody coach is NOT!

  • Someone who has reached their fitness goals- you do NOT need to have reached your goals to coach! You can motivate and support others while you are working on YOU! It is a beautiful thing.
  • Someone who is a social media expert- you do NOT need to be a social media expert but you must be willing to learn!

When I started coaching I had no idea what to expect.  I am not a personal trainer. I am not a nutritionist. I am a full time working mom! I am like so many other people juggling all of what life throws at us.

I am a supporter. I am a friend. I am someone who  will  listen. I share my own journey and work with my challengers to reach our goals. It has helped me supplement my income while continuing on my own fitness journey!  I have been able to travel and meet the other members of my team! I have made friendships with like minded individuals and I belong to an AMAZING team!

If this sounds like something you would be interested in hearing more about fill out the information below!!

What is a challenge group?!

So you may be wondering what is a challenge group?!!  So I am going to give you the breakdown. PicsArt_1455397465403

It is a private Facebook group, where people just like you that are working on health and fitness, will come together to provide support and accountability. Each day, as your coach, I will post in the group about various topics, and also each day everyone checks in! So how did you do that day!? You will self assess your day on 4 topics: Food, Exercise, Water and Shakeology!

Each member of the group will be using an easy at home workout program and also each member of the group will be using Shakeology which is an amazing, delicious, superfood meal replacement! It is a game changer and it is a key piece of the nutrition plan for each Beachbody workout program.

The benefits to these groups include increased knowledge about the products that you are using, as well as you will be accountable for your journey, which means you are more likely to stick to the program!! The group will provide the support so that you can be consistent and finish the program! As well as you will meet some amazing people, and make some great new friends!

If you are interested in hearing more about the challenge groups fill out the form below and I will be in touch shortly! Lets work together to start reaching your goals TODAY!!!

My top 4 favorite snacks!

So eating clean doesn’t mean you don’t get to eat or that you will be hungry! That is far from the truth.

In fact I eat more food now then I probably ever have before. The difference is WHAT I am eating.

Here are my top 4 favorite snack ideas!

Favorite Snacks (1)

 

  1. Plain yogurt (greek or regular), diced apple, cinnamon and then a drizzle of honey! So good!
  2. Fresh veggies with hummus. This is a go to for me.
  3. Hard boiled eggs. I know that doesn’t maybe sound all that exciting but hard boiled eggs are full of protein and healthy fats. They are quick, easy to prepare and carry with you on the go and they will fill you up.
  4. Banana’s and peanut butter. So I am a peanut butter lover! I love the  whipped peanut butter from Kraft. In small amounts it is ok! It would be better to use an all natural peanut butter if you can.

In the picture you will notice the bananas and peanut butter are fancy! Yes… get fancy with it! Cut them up and make little sandwiches for yourself. Healthy eating should  be fun! Get creative!
