Day 2...Sneak Peek!

DAY2

Topic of the Day:  21 Day Fix Containers
- containers are for portion control
- no counting calories!
- eat from containers multiple times a day (depending on current weight)
- For example, I am the lowest bracket.  I labeled my containers because I am a very visual person. As you can see, I get 4 red a day (protein) whereas a person that weighs more than me and in a higher  bracket may get protein 5 x a day.

BREAKFAST:  Shakeology 1 Red 
Shakeology comes in many different flavors.  Chocolate is my favorite!  There are so many YUMMY recipes you can make with Shakeology.  Sometimes they taste so good, I feel like I am cheating. :)



 Blueberry Oatmeal 1 Yellow
 Ingredients:
½ cup of 100% whole wheat quick oatmeal

1 cup of water
1 container full of either fresh or frozen blueberries

Directions:  Place all three ingredients in a glass bowl and cook for recommended amount on the back of the oatmeal box.  Depending on if you use fresh blueberries I would only add those at the end but if frozen place in the bowl before placing in the microwave.  If your someone that is short on time (like myself) making this recipe in a large batch and then quick reheat is a saver on time as well.


LUNCH:  Loaded Baked Potato
Ingredients:
- Potato
- Turkey Breast
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Broccoli   
- sea salt (optional) 


Directions:
I cook mine the super, easy way...microwave! First, clean the potato.  Poke holes with a fork.  Wrap in a wet paper towel and cook for 2 minutes or until soft.  Cook broccoli in microwave separately.  When finished, slit potato in half and layer with warm turkey (or any meat), shredded cheddar cheese, and broccoli.  You could also substitute the meat with cottage cheese. (1 red)
1 yellow, 1 Red, 1/2 Blue, 1 green

 SNACK: 
I eat several snacks throughout the day.  As you can see, you can fit quite a bit of fruit in the purple cup.  I have 8 apples slices!  1 Purple

 Clean Eating Cookie Dough Yogurt ... 1 Red

Do you have a sweet tooth like me??  I always have a sweet tooth at night while relaxing and watching a show. I came across this recipe and instantly had to try it! Anything with yogurt, peanut butter and chocolate I am game! It is called clean eating cookie dough yogurt!!!  AMAZING!!!

Directions:

Combine Greek yogurt with the peanut butter, honey, vanilla and sea salt. Mix until smooth. Top with mini choc chips and enjoy!!!


DINNER:

Zucchini Lasagna



This is seriously one of my favorite meals! It's comfort food at it's finest but healthy! The whole family really loved this dish and it's now one of my new favorites. I totally encourage you to make this but of course use good portion control and pair it with a salad.
So here is how you make it ....


  Ingredients:
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 lb of lean ground turkey
  • Sea Salt and Black Pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 or 4 small zucchini sliced lengthwise
  • 24 oz of low fat or 1% cottage cheese 
  • 1 jar of spaghetti sauce
  • Non fat or low fat mozzarella cheese
  • Side note:  The Italian blood in me just cant use a jar of spaghetti sauce.  I made my own homemade sauce, which you can do too!  Hint....fresh ingredients are key!! (fresh basil, garlic and parsley) 
 Directions:
  • Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
  • Combine onion, ground turkey, salt, pepper, garlic powder in a skillet and brown turkey until no longer pink.
  • Layer Zucchini in the bottom of your pan, then spread a layer of cottage cheese, follow that with a layer of ground turkey mixture, spread a layer of sauce on top.
  • Repeat this over again.  Then layer one final row of zucchini on top and cover with sauce and a little sprinkle of mozzarella cheese.   
  • Cover with foil and bake in the oven for approximately 1 hour.
  • Remove the foil and continue to bake for 10 more minutes then remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes.   
  •  Yes, it will be a little bit runny due to the water in the zucchini, sauce and the cottage cheese.  I used a slotted spoon to scoop out the lasagna which allows the liquids to stay in the dish.   
  •  Makes 6 Servings Per Serving: 1 Red, 1 Yellow, 1 Green, 1 Blue



  • WATER: Drink several glasses of water a day!  Carry around a water bottle with you everywhere!  Check out the BENEFITS!

  • Transformation Of The Day!  
  •  Here is a perfect example of why it is so important to take before and after pictures when you start the 21 Day Fix. Amy, on the right, did not lose as many pounds, but look how her body completely transformed!!  This is why the 21 Day Fix program ROCKS!!








    Exercise Tip!
  • Ever wonder what parts of the body holding a PLANK can benefit....several!  Todays exercise of the day is to hold a plank for 60 seconds.  Come on...GO!!
  •  
    Life is short...smile and make it a great day!
