Think again!

Maegan Blinka, Fit mom, Healthy mom, Megan Blinka, Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Healthy dinner side dishes, Brussel sprout ideas, Balsamic Brussel sprouts, How to roast Brussel Sprouts, MOPS, MOMS CLUB INTERNATIONAL

I had a little “girls night out” a while ago and we went to dinner in downtown Pittsburgh and we got the most amazing “Sprouts app”. They were so good – we ordered a second dish!!!

Yes – they were smothered in butter and oil and cheese and who knows what else but OMG – I couldn’t stop eating them…and I realized there had to be a healthier alternative!

Truth me told, I had tried Bacon Brussel Spouts in the past and Brown sugar sprouts and while they were OKAY – I never made them again. Just didn’t do it for me…but this little concoction HIT THE SPOT!!!

The key is turning them frequently so you get the little crunch!

WHAT YOU NEED:
-1 lb brussle sprouts, washed and halved
-1-2TBS Balsamic Vinegar
– 3 gloves minced garlic
– 2 tsp olive oil

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

-Preheat oven to 400 F
-Line baking sheet with foil
-Combine all ingredients into ziplock bag and shake
-Bake 30-40 min, stirring frequently (every 7-10min)

Serve with some Turkey Burgers, sweet potato fries and BAM – delicious dinner!

(1 cup) -1 red & 1/2 green

Your cheese, avocado would count towards your blue

**Salsa: I opted not to “count” the salsa. The 1 cup for the whole recipe seemed insignificant as a “purple” – but of course it is up to you if you want to or not. I didn’t count it at all**

Turkey Chili – Fixate Style

I whipped up a triple batch of this before heading to California for the NLC last week and somehow the hubs requested it AGAIN this week…I guess I and going something right!!!

Turkey chili pinterest

Servings: 8 (approximately 1.5 cups each) Prep Time: 20 minutes; Cook Time: 30 minutes

(container equivalents: 1/2 green, 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 oil/fat)

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 2 tsp extra virgin organic coconut oil, melted
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 lb cooked 93% lean ground turkey breast (or lean grass-fed ground beef)
  • 2 cans (15 oz each) kidney beans (or pinto beans) drained, rinsed
  • 1 can (15 oz) organic diced tomatoes, no salt added
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 Tbsp ground chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
  • 2 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 8 tsp crumbled goat cheese

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat.

2. Add onion and bell peppers; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes, or until onion is translucent.

3. Add garlic; cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute.

4. Add turkey, beans, tomatoes (with liquid), wine, chili powder, salt, and red pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; gently boil, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes, or until slightly thickened.

5. Evenly divide between six serving bows; top with cilantro and cheese.

The recipe is per the FIXATE cookbook! I have experimented by adding some red pepper flakes for some kick, a can of rotel for one of the cans of crushed tomatoes as well as halving the beans for a little less yellow and adding a few crumbed up tortilla chips. I also prefer shredded cheddar cheese to the goat cheese.  Use this as your guide and make it fit YOUR lifestyle and tastebuds!!!

Baked Mancakes

Its no secret – I. Love. My. Mancakes.

Here’s the real deal – I actually love pancakes but I have a hard time putting anything into my body that has ZERO nutritional value! So I put a halt to the classic pancakes a while ago but I have found the best solution: Mancakes! They’re a gluten free combo of: Oats, egg whites, berries, banana and naturally flavored with some pure extracts and cinnamon!

They’re filing, no need for syrup, and my 2 year old insists on them DAILY – #mommywin!

Now: The only downside is – they take FOREVER to cook! Partially because when I make them I made a quadruple batch (which yields around 32-35 pancakes) and I don’t like to dirty more than one pan – but nonetheless – time is precious!

My husband and I both had these on our WEEK 1 HAMMER & CHISEL MEAL PLANS and I decided there was no way I could stand and flip that many cakes!

So I whipped up this little Mancake Berry Bake this week and it tasted like a blueberry muffin and I’m kind of thinking this is going to be my new thing!

The consistency is dense -like a cake/muffin but full of flavor! I’ve been enjoying these post-workout/Recovery shake for Meal #1 followed by my shakeology. This has been working these last four days to keep me energized and full after these intense Hammer & Chisel Workouts!!!

Baked Mancakes

WHAT YOU NEED: 

2 Cups of Oats

16 Egg whites (2 small cartons or one large)

1 Cup of strawberries (frozen are a-okay!)

1 Cup of blueberries (frozen are a-okay!)

1 banana

3 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 tsp almond extract

Walnuts (optional)

Coconut oil

2015-09-12 10.31.13

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth (you’ll see some oats but that’s okay!!!) – Now in my first go at these I forgot to add my blueberries – so I sprinkled them throughout and baked – I feel like this gave them more of a “muffin” feel opposed to blending them all together! But my little guy prefers them blended smooth!!
  3. Pour into 9×13 baking pan (I prefer the foil toss pans – easy in and easy out!!! Don’t forget to spritz with olive oil or coconut oil first!)
  4. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Make sure you test the center so its cooked fully (note: using frozen fruit may prolong the baking time 10-15 minutes)
  5. Break into 4 pieces and now you have 4 breakfasts ready to go!

Hot or cold – these things are AMAZING!

Container Equivalents:

Whether you’re following the 21-day fix or Hammer & Chisel or Insanity Max: 30 or CIZE  – this recipe will fit your meal plan!!!

I have them planned out to give me: 1 Yellow, 1 Purple and 1/2 Red with each serving. The walnuts would be counted as a blue if used! 

Why the 1/2 red? Because I am missing my post dinner sweet treat and what I found is that I can shake 1/2 a scoop of chocolate shakeology with some ice cold water to finish dinner and I no longer have that urge to much 🙂

THERE TRULY IS POWER IN NUMBERS

Peanutty Peanut Butter Bars – FIXATE

FIXATE recipe, Peanut butter bars, Clean peanut butter dessert, gluten free healthy dessert, gluten free dessert bars, Maegan blinka, Megan Blinka, New 21 day fix recipes

I think its safe to say that not many people will be surprised to see that the first recipe I tried from FIXATE was in the dessert section and loaded with some all natural PB 😉

There’s so many amazing recipes in this book ranging from Gluten Free to Paleo to Vegan and Vegetarian but after falling one ingredient short for the chocolate chip cookies I opted for this peanutty goodness!!

Peanutty Peanut Butter Bars (recipe from the FIXATE cookbook)

Makes 16 servings, Each serving is 1 YELLOW and 2.5 TSP

WHAT YOU NEED:

1 1/2 cups all natural smooth peanut butter

1/2 cup raw honey (or pure maple syrup)

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

2 large eggs (at room temperature)

1/2 tsp baking soda, gluten free

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO: 

FIXATE recipe, Peanut butter bars, Clean peanut butter dessert, gluten free healthy dessert, gluten free dessert bars, Maegan blinka, Megan Blinka, New 21 day fix recipes

1. Preheat oven to 350F

2. Lightly coat 8×8-inch baking pan with spray. Set aside

3. Combine peanut butter, honey, extract, eggs, and baking soda in a large bowl; mix well

4. Evenly spread batter into prepared pan. Smooth top with a spatula.

5. Bake 20 to 23 minutes. Squares may be a little soft when coming out of the oven, but they will continue to cook.

6. Cool. Cut into squares.

I’ll be honest – these are one of the best “healthy/clean” treats I’ve ever made! And coming from a chocoholic – I can tell you I’ve tried A LOT of different recipes. Its sweet, but not too sweet. Has a bit of a cake-like consistency and its clean and 21-day fix approved!

Definitely a win in my book!!!

The FIXATE cookbook was developed by Autumn Calabrese, the creator of the 21-day fix and the 21-day fix extreme to help adapt to portion controlled clean eating included within the nutrition guide from the program while thinking outside the box a bit with some great new recipe combos that won’t leave you missing out on the old comfort foods!

She includes everything from Vegan to Gluten Free to Paleo and Vegetarian broken down by  breakfasts, main dishes, sides, snacks, shakeology and of course deserts! 

—————————————————————————————————–

The FIXATE cookbook is available in the US, Cananda and also in Spanish

As I mentioned above, the FIXATE cookbook was created in connection with the 21-day fix and 21-day fix home DVD workout programs. The portion control system is also applicable to the Insanity Max:30 workout program and the new program, CIZE! I run monthly support groups to  help others get started with healthy living including regular exercise, meal planning, eating clean etc… and to also to stick to it and hold yourself ACCOUNTABLE to your health and fitness goals!
