I loved Sloppy Joes as a little girl! It’s one of those comfort foods that can instantly bring you back to your childhood. Last week I shared a recipe for Turkey Sloppy Joes in my Free 5 Day Fitness and Nutrition Group and today I want to share it with you! This recipe comes straight from the Fixate cookbook written by Autumn Calabrese (the trainer who developed the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme programs). This recipe is healthy and my entire family gave it two thumbs up!
It’s that time of year for baking Holiday cookies and I am super excited to share this cookie recipe with you. These cookies are gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and free of refined sugar. But they are not free of taste! Plus they are made with ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen and you don’t even need a hand mixer to make them! Perfect for busy moms looking for a quick healthy snack for their kids (or themselves!). They are also a great gluten free cookie to bring to your next cookie exchange party.
I love chicken salad and this one is hands down my favorite! This recipe is straight out of the new Fixate cookbook written by Autumn Calabrese (the trainer who developed the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme programs). I have been incorporating the 21 Day Fix Extreme eating plan and workouts into my daily routine and this cookbook has been a life saver! It contains 101 healthy recipes that are all designed to be used with the portion control containers from the program. Some of the recipes are also vegan, vegetarian, paleo, and gluten free. A little something for everyone!
Last week I posted about a new ancient grain that I tried called Freekeh. I really like this product and I have been experimenting with a few recipes. I came up with a delicious Greek Freekeh Salad and I wanted to share it with you! Continue reading
Hmmmm….What?!? That’s right, I tried Freekeh and it is one of my new favorite grains! You may be wondering what Freekeh is. Freekeh is an ancient roasted grain that has an awesome nutty, chewy texture. What’s more, Freekeh has up to 3 times the amount of fiber and protein as brown rice and is naturally low in sodium and it’s vegan! Not to mention that it is certified organic, Non GMO, and grown in the USA.
So what do you do with Freekeh? So far I have used it in my chicken stir fry and made a Mexican salad with it. Yum! It would also be great in soups, pilafs, salads, chilis, stews etc…The possibilities are endless!
Let’s talk meal plan and prep! Sunday is the day that I use to meal plan and prep, so I wanted to share my tips on meal planning and preparation. This is a very important part of eating healthy, especially for people who are on the go, working, or busy all day! It will help you stay on track and make healthy choices throughout your day.
We went berry picking over the weekend and we picked over 6 pounds of blueberries! The first thing that my family wanted me to make was blueberry crisp. Well, I used to make my blueberry crisp with sugar…and a lot of it. Eek! I experimented and came up with a healthier alternative and I wanted to share it with you. Continue reading
