HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!

Mini Vegetable Egg Cups

I don’t know about you – but I am all about a fast easy healthy breakfast…and anytime I can sneak in a veggie in that first meal is an added bonus!!!

I prepped these over the weekend for a quick post-workout grab. We have an activity most mornings during the week so if I don’t grab a shower post workout its tough to get in – but at the same time – I need to fuel up after I workout so this is the best of both worlds!

I used to always have my Shakeology post workout but I’ve started saving my shakeo for when my kiddos wake up and I make a little extra for them…this cold and flu season is NASTY this year and I want to give them as many vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and probiotics and probiotics as possible…and this is the easiest and healthiest way!!!!

  • 12 Eggs (poor planning on my part – I had 10…so I added in some egg whites to even it out!!!)
  • 1 (10-oz) bag baby spinach, chopped
  • 1 medium pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 green onions, finely sliced
  • Salt (sea salt or Himalayan salt) and ground pepper to taste

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C)

2. Lightly coat a twelve-cup muffin tin with spray

3. Place eggs in a large bowl; whisk to blend. Season with salt and pepper if desired.

4. Add spinach, peppers and onions, mix well.

5. Evenly pour egg mixture into muffin cups

6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of cups comes out clean.

I planned on eating these throughout the week (see my WEEK 2…21-DAY FIX EXTREME Meal Plan) but you can also freeze them in individual baggies for a quick grab and go later on!!!

21 Day Fix Extreme one week down 2 to go!

2015-02-09 05.51.01

I’m excited to say that I survived week 1 of the 21 Day Fix Extreme! Although I’ve been sore somewhere new every single morning, I find the workouts fun yet challenging and I can already see some changes in my body! I loved all of the workouts in the original 21 day fix and this program proves the same. The variety is perfect! Every day targets a different muscle group and that Sunday Yoga fix comes at a time when your muscles REALLY need that extra stretch. Kind of like they knew what they were doing, lol 🙂

I had never used a resistance band the way its used in Pilates but WOW – talk about resistance training at its best!!! I thought you just used it as a subsitute for weights but turns out some basic moves can be turned up a notch or two or three with this simple little band!!!

2015-02-11 07.16.37

I still kind of feel like a twisted pretzel at times but I’m getting better for sure!!!

Now truthful moment – my nutrition has not been where I’d like it to be! The planning part is there…and prep is there…its controlling my urges to eat when I know its not “time” to eat! I keep reminding my challengers and myself – Don’t mistake that feeling of thirst for hunger – if it hasn’t been 2.5-3 hours since the last meal – CHUG!!!!

I’ve been dabbling in a lot of the new recipes within the 21 Day Fix Extreme nutrition book – and those are nothing short of AMAZING – I’ve tried out the Cashew ‘N’ Oat Hotcakes, the Turkey Chili, Strawberry Protein Bars, Chocolate Pudding and repeated each of them!!!

2015-02-11 08.50.54

I never miss my SHAKEOLOGY and even found myself subbing some of my “reds” last week and doubling up on my shakeo!!! Perhaps it was the new addition of the Candy Bar to my rotation (modified to fit into my daily container allowance!) but there have been people sick all around and I know that will only help boost my immue system with all the antioxidants along with the pro and pre-biotics! This mama doesn’t have any time for getting sick!!!

2015-02-14 07.50.20

I know a lot of people/men see Autumn and wonder if this program can be for men too. Well let me tell you my hubs has been working out regularly for almost a year and while he is in the middle of Insanity Max: 30, he passed on the PULSE day and joined me for a little Dirty 30 on Valentines Day morning and he even admitted he got a good 30 minute burn in!!!

We’ll be doing round 2 together 🙂

Its been FRIGID in western PA this weekend and as much as I dislike these subzero temperatures I can tell you I was pretty darn productive!!! Today I’ve already prepped the Turkey Meatballs and Veggie Egg Cups for this week…along with some cajun chicken, tilapia, mancakes for the hubby, and veggies!!! I’ve set myself up for success….I just need to resist the random snacking and desire to finish off my munchkins’ snacks!!!

2015-02-10 06.51.32My week 1 goal was primarily to STOP finishing remaining food and the mindless snacks – and I failed. Why is it that that macoroni and cheese just screams out my name to take just ONE bite?!?! My willpower was just bad this week!!!

So this week I’ll try again…no more finishing the oatmeal or cereal or those darn cheese its – its time to FOCUS and stick to my meal plan!!!

 

21 DFX Week 2 Meal Plan

I’ve planned out week 2 really focusing on the foods at the top of the lists to maximize my results!!! My YELLOWS are primarily quinoa, sweet potatoes and oatmeal…my REDS are usually fish/seafoood, chicken, turkey, eggs, and Shakeology, my PURPLES are apples and berries and my GREENS are asparagus, broccoli, peppers, spinach and cucumbers. I’ve also eliminated bananas, greek yogurt and almond milk.

I took the time, planned, shopped and prepped and now I’m looking to my challengers and accountability group to help hold me to my goals this week!!!!

Cashew ‘N’ Oat Hotcakes

So week 1 of the 21-Day Fix Extreme is almost complete and I have to say all of the recipes we’ve tried so far from the nutrition guide have been AMAZING!!! I decided to save these for the weekend and make enough for both Saturday and Sunday mornings and they were a hit for the entire family!!!

Cashew ‘N’ Oat Hotcakes

Image-1

Makes 10 servings, 2 hotcakes each – 1/2 Purple 1 yellow, 1 teaspoon

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1 dash Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 TBS coconut oil, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 5 cups mixed berries

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

1. Pulse oats, cashews, salt and cinnamon in a food processor or blender until coarsely ground.

2. Add egg, oil, water and vanilla extract; pulse until well blended

3. Heat medium nonstick skillet, lightly coated with spray, over medium heat.

4. Spoon about 1/4 cup batter into skillet for each pancake; cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until bubbles form on top (I found a large cookie scooper to work the best for making them even!!!)

5. Flip with spatula and cook for 30 seconds

6. Repeat with remaining batter

7. Serve pancakes topped evenly with berries

I opted to use blueberries but my hubs did a mixture of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries!!!  I love that these are gluten free and contain coconut oil – two things I’m trying to make part of my routine!!!

2015-02-09 11.45.42

Clearly we were all excited to try these out as my hubs snuck a bit in before I could capture the big picture!!!
