Pre-heat oven to 350

Butter a 10 inch skillet so that your pizza doesn’t stick (use a skillet that can go in the oven)

In large bowl mix:

5 or 6 eggs

1/4 cup almond milk or milk of your choice

1/4 cup shredded or crumbled cheese of your choice (I used feta and mozzarella)

2 chicken sausage links (cut into small pcs)-or meat of your choice or no meat

1 to 2 cups veggies of your choice (I used red onion, red and yellow peppers in this one) other suggestions: broccoli, mushrooms, green peppers, white onion, kale, spinach, sweet potatoes…anything you would put in an omelette.

Pour mixture into the skillet and bake for 15 to 18 min in oven

Let cool for 5 min before transferring onto cutting board and cutting like a pizza. Makes 6 pcs of egg pizza-do not eat with your hands 🙂 Eat now and or save for later in fridge for 2 to 3 days.

Tips for breaking through a SLUMP!

breakthrough POST

Hi friends! I have been thinking a lot about you and some of you that have told me that you are in an unhealthy slump or you had a few bad days and are having trouble getting back on point.

Although I can’t see all of you in person to talk I want to try to help you from here!

Here are some tips to get you back on track and realize that slumps are just a part of the process! So do not beat yourself up over it. Let it flow and know that it is normal to have ups and downs. The sooner you get back up the better. Make sure you aren’t doing anything too extreme that you can’t keep up with. Keep daily healthy stress-free habits so that they are part of your life that you really don’t consider a burden. It’s just what you do and how you are choosing to live.

#1. Treat each and every day as if it is the beginning of the process for you-the past does not matter. Those cookies you had or those drinks and cake at the birthday party over the weekend-guess what?? Today, they have no bearing on your fit and healthy future! Start fresh everyday-in attitude, movement and nutrition! Slumps happen because no one is perfect and its okay to live a 80/20 ratio. You can have some downtime, you can go to the game, you can lay on the couch. But you must keep breaking through!!!

#2. Be creative and try something new-food and exercise wise. Nothing breaks you out of a slump like a new class or a new training program or trying some new recipes and snacks! Do not be intimidated by others! Healthy looks different on everybody and every body!

#3. Let others inspire you! Social media is flooded with fitness and food-look at it, copy it, try it, eat it!! Do it! Keep fresh and up to speed with new ideas that are working for others. But stick to your guns and know that only a true long-term healthy lifestyle will get you the healthiest and fittest you! Tag along with a friend on a run or do whatever they are doing for a day. Buddies are the best!

#4. Check in with your mind. Is something bothering you? Is something not right in your love life, family, career? This could be what is literally “weighing you down” and making you unmotivated to get off the couch or put the chips down!

#5. Remember why you started trying in the first place. Get back to that place and start fresh!! That is what is so great about waking up each morning and having the chance to make it even better! So, go make it better! Focus on your physical activity, healthy eating choices and mental health! Because the good life requires all three! I know you can do it!

#6. You and only you can turn it around! If its been days, weeks or even months or years you can turn it around right now! I can’t do it for you, nor can your friends or family members. You hold all of the power to make the changes to get out of the slump. It’s a decision that only you can make.

20 MIN BALL WORKOUT

BALL WORKOUT

 

Need: stability ball and toning ball (mine is 6 lbs)

Exercises:

Plank-hold for one min with good form-don’t arch or round your back-form straight line from heels to head

Push ups with feet or legs on the ball as many as you can

Bridge hold or pulse for 20 sec or 20 slow reps up and down pushing your heels against the ball which is against the wall/couch/etc (something stable)….also your feet could be a little higher on the ball than mine are in the picture!

V hold with ball in between feet for as long as you can if you can’t do this yet then practice with no ball and knees bent

Small ball full overhead sit up-start lying down with ball behind you in your hands (as pictured) then come all the way up and over your head with ball while heels stay forced to the ground doing a full sit up-20 reps

ball workout 5

 

Mt. Climbers pictured above-push small toning ball tight into the ground and bring each leg in holding core tight and alternating legs for 20 reps at a fast pace.

ball workout 7Leg lift-slowly lower your legs holding your core tight until feet and ball almost touch the ground then raise them again-repeat sequence 10 times.

Now you are done with round 1! Do as many rounds as you have time for but 2 rounds in 20 minutes would be awesome! Rest about 30 to 45 seconds between each exercise!

Works your entire body!

You are awesome!!

xo, A

 

Brussels Sprouts Salad

brussels sprouts salad

Well….I thought I knew but I had no idea what living really was until I ate this…..so fresh, so good for you AND so tasty! I perked up like a plant does when you water it! Nutrient overload! Yes! This is what I strive for in my meals and hope that you will too! I want you to feel ALIVE!

Back to the sprouts….Take about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of raw Brussels Sprouts and chop off the ends (discard them)

Peel apart what you can of the sprouts and chop up the rest. Place all  on your plate and get ready to create something beautiful!

Add:

4 oz chicken breast (I made a whole chicken on Sunday and had this chilled and stored in the fridge for the week so I just grabbed some and chopped it up) highly recommend this! Makes meal prep so easy!

1/4 c chopped mango

1/4 chopped red grapes

about 2 tsp. feta cheese

about 2 tsp. chopped up celery

1 TBSP pepitas  or sunflower seeds

I am sure it would be lovely with other ingredients too but this is what I had on hand. I could see it with sweet potatoes, pomegranate seeds, strawberries, nuts, mixed with spinach leaves…you get my drift…create a magical combo on your own if you want, you don’t have to follow any of my recipes to a tee!

Dressing:

Mix 1 part vinegar, 2 parts oil (like olive) and 3 parts water. Add a dash of cinnamon, lime juice, salt, pepper, cumin and honey. Whisk together and serve.

Boom. Alive.

Enjoy!!

Lemon Pepper Tuna Bake

Well, it’s official…I am obsessed with making different Tuna Casseroles/Bakes!!! My mom used to make them when we were little but with Velveeta and always the same! I like to make them healthier and mix them up with different flavors.

I made this one with 2 lemon pepper tuna (from Starkist) pouches pictured below!

starkist lemon pepper tuna

Directions:

Cook 2 cups dry pasta-I used Dreamfields Rotini (just under cook it according to the directions because you  are then going to bake it) I love Dreamfields pasta-it is a smart way to eat pasta because it is high in protein and fiber too!

Add the drained pasta to your casserole dish filled with tuna, 1 small can reduced sodium cream of celery, one c skim or almond milk, 1/2 c chopped green pepper, 1/2 c chopped celery, 1/3 c chopped onion, the juice if one half lemon, season with parsley, garlic powder, pepper, add 1/4 c parmesan cheese-Mix all together well. Top that sparingly with 3 tsp whole wheat breadcrumbs or panko bread crumbs, more parsley and pepper,  1/4 c shredded mozzarella cheese and last finish off with the zest of the half lemon you juiced!

***As a rule I always go easy on the cheese and also the breadcrumbs-this is how you can still eat what you want by just tweaking it to make it more figure friendly!! I also try to use almond milk or skim to cut some fat out there too!  Eat smarter!!

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 min
