Creamy Chicken Salad

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!

Get Your Freekeh On!

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!

Do you love Greek yogurt? I do!

Plus it’s packed with protein and lower in sugar than some of the other Greek yogurts on the market (Plenti Yogurt has a 1:1 protein to sugar ratio…12g of each). It’s the perfect snack!

What is Shakeology and Why Do I Drink It?

What is Shakeology and why did I start drinking it? Those are great questions.  I will start by telling you that I was not a huge fan of protein/meal replacement shakes.  I had bad experiences with other popular shakes and I was very hesitant to try Shakeology. The more that I researched Shakeology, the more I became intrigued.  I started researching the ingredients in Shakeology.  Who really knows what Yakon Root, Reishi Mushroom or Moringa are? I do now that I did my research!  They are just 3 of the ingredients in Shakeology that help lower cholesterol, decrease fatigue, and enhance your immune system.   Continue reading

Did you know that quinoa contains more vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants than any other grain? It does!  Spinach and mushrooms also contain abundant nutrients so you can’t go wrong with this dish!  Here’s the recipe:
