How to repurpose your leftovers

How to repurpose your leftovers

HOW TO REPURPOSE YOUR LEFTOVERS It’s SUNDAY (at the original time of this post ;))!!!… a day which many people use for meal prepping and planning! So, it got us thinking… how many times we’ ve looked at a recipe only to be deterred from trying it because we don’t know we’re going to do with all the leftover ingredients! How many times this is happened to you? Well, we just so happened to find this quick and accessible list of SIMPLE ways to repurpose your leftovers in our new 22 Minute Hard Corps program food plan… and because this is definitely another key strategy and sticking to your plan and reaching your goals… Here it is for YOU: LEFTOVER MEATS Chicken, pork, beef, or fish can become tacos or wraps. Use lettuce or a large, very thin slice of jicama for the tortilla or wrapper. LEFTOVER VEGETABLES AND COOKED PASTA Pair with eggs to become frittatas. You can make individual frittatas by combining 6 eggs with ½ cup water. Add leftover veggies, cooked protein (like chopped turkey bacon), or cooked pasta. Fill sprayed muffin cups ¾ full. Bake at 375° F for 15 to 18 minutes. Refrigerate or freeze frittatas individually. LEFTOVER HARD BOILED EGGS Can be mixed with reduced fat Greek yogurt and curry powder to make curried egg salad. VEGETABLES AND COOKED BROWN RICE Combine cooked veggies and cooked brown rice plus protein to make “bowls.” MAKE A HEALTHIER HOMEMADE VEGGIE PATTY This can also use up leftover brown rice.

Bored with Chicken?

Bored with Chicken?

BORED WITH CHICKEN? I hear a lot from our clients that they get bored with chicken… and I have to admit that I’ve said it a few times myself! When you start a journey into cleaner eating the first protein you go to is chicken for a number of reasons. It has a lower fat and higher protein rating than most other meats. It is a natural anti-depressant (who knew??) and will naturally boost your metabolism! However… you can still get pretty tired of eating it day after day after day. So… ya gotta get creative! But still keep it simple. Who has time time prepare a huge chicken dinner anymore? Here are four quick chicken recipes to spice up the menu and keep preparation time low! Bon appetit!

{RECIPE} Bow Chicka Bow Wow, Shakeology, be mine!

Feeling a little BOW CHICKA BOW WOW since starting your Shakeology?

Now before you hightail it to the blender and cue the Barry White, check out these 6 amazing SUPERFOOD reasons that will have you saying… “Shakeology, be mine” (& don’t forget to scroll down to our Valentine’s Day inspired Choco-Cherry-Licious Shakeology recipe. A little something something for you to share with someone special): •Maca Root – known as Peruvian Viagra It helps increase strength, endurance, energy, stamina, potency… and libido! •Goji Berries – this Asian fruit increases testosterone levels, stimulating libido in men and women AND they improve overall stamina, mood and well-being… all which makes for a much more rocking sex life! •Reishi Mushrooms – this sexy mushroom’s Chinese name (Lingzhi) translates to english as ‘the herb of spiritual potency’ and has been included in tons of traditional treatments spanning over four millennia. Need I say more?? •Cacao – (in my fav Chocolate Vegan ;)) chemicals in the raw bean stimulate the senses and heighten feelings of joy and pleasure. Its one natural powerful aphrodisiac! •Adaptagen herbs (Aashawganda, Astragalus, Cordyceps, and Reishi) – most Adaptagen herbs are also herbal aphrodisiacs. They will effect sexual libido either through increasing blood flow to the genital region or by balancing the hormones of the endocrine system. When hormones are in balance there is also a tendency for the physical appearance to remain vibrant and youthful simply because the body still wishes to be attractive...

6 SIMPLE Steps To Help You Get Back On Track [Plus A Recipe]

Let’s cut to the chase. It’s post holidays and you’re feeling it. Bloated? Guilty? Off-track and completely unsure how to get back on again? Let’s make a deal. You promise not to overthink it and we’ll give you 6 SIMPLE Steps To Help You Get Back On Track again in no time. Here we go! Forgiveness. It was the holidays. To regret the good time spent with loved ones and celebrations would be a loss. So, forgive yourself for the food over-indulgences and treats. Move on! Ditch the ‘trigger’ foods: Toss, remove, give away any food that when you start eating, you cannot stop eating. Baking, candy, and treats (alcohol too!). I know you know what we’re taking about. Reset your goals: make achievable goals for the next 30, 60, and 90 days, write them down, commit to them, and post them where you can see them every single day. Make your favourite healthy meal: We’ve shared with you our newest, clean, and (bonus): healthy meal below! Or make your own… it will give you a sense of empowerment to get creative in the kitchen by doing something good for you and it will help you feel better too! Do your favourite workout: don’t pick the hardest one or “double up” to punish yourself up for those you missed (this will just reinforce a negative relationship with exercise). Pick a workout you like and do it! No hesitation. Do it. Put some skin in the game: Things get real when you have vested interest in the outcome of your goals and you put some skin in the game. Tell someone your goals and ask for help, invest in a new program, or get some coaching. You don’t have to do it by yourself. You’re better off when...

Events to go to. Parties to host. Dinners to attend. So much to do and so easy to overindulge.

Here are 10 Holiday Health Hacks that will help you get through the overindulgent time of the year: Eat in advance. Before you head out have yourself a quick snack of some fruit and veggies. Fill up on the good stuff! Eat slowly. The food is not going anywhere. Take your time! Use a smaller plate. This will equal smaller portion size. Pick veggies first. Do you really need that mountain of mashed potatoes? Drink water. Before the meal and during. Fills you up! Avoid seconds. Do you really wanna feel bloated after the meal? Avoid booze. It lowers inhibitions… even with food! Partner up. Have someone there who you can be accountable to. Stay positive. You have goals. Uncle Daryl might not… but you do! Just say no. If someone pushes you to overeat… just say NO THANK YOU 🙂 You have worked so hard all year to get where you are at. You can set yourself back so far...
