Clean Eating Super Bowl Dishes

2 medium tomatoes, diced and seeded
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
1-2 tbsp lime juice
2 cups guacamole
2 tbsp green onions, chopped
For the sweet potato chips
3 large sweet potatoes
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tsp salt
For the meat
1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 green chili, diced
1 lb. ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp tomato paste
12 oz. canned diced tomatoes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
  1. To make the sweet potato chips, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Peel the sweet potatoes and slice thinly, using either a mandolin or sharp knife. In a large bowl, toss them with coconut oil and salt. Place the chips in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, then flip the chips over and bake for another 10 minutes. For the last ten minutes, watch the chips closely and pull off any chips that start to brown, until all of the chips are cooked.
  2. While the potato chips are baking, start preparing the beef. Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and chili to the pan and sauté for 3-4 minutes until softened. Add the ground beef and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring regularly. Add the garlic, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and remaining spices and stir well to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer and then turn the heat down to medium-low. Cook, covered, for 20-25 minutes, stirring regularly.
  3. Stir the chopped tomatoes, lime juice, and cilantro into the beef mixture. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
  4. To assemble the nachos, form a large circle with the sweet potato chips on a platter. Add the beef mixture into the middle of the circle, and then top with guacamole and green onions.

Creamy Chicken Avocado Pasta

Creamy Chicken Avocado Pasta

It's hard to believe this pregnancy has 3 weeks left.  To be honest every time I'm pregnant the thought of cooking chicken in general is not something I loo forward to.  However this recipe did not require a ton of time in the kitchen and was very creamy with lots of flavor.  With the launch of the 21 day fix extreme my goal was to help others find recipes that are simple, tasty, 21 day fix approved and with little clean up.

This is it!!



6 ounces pasta, we used whole wheat spaghetti
1 large ripe Avocado, pitted and peel removed
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
 2 dashes of garlic powder
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional I went without)
 shake of salt
Freshly ground black pepper


1. Bring water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Salt the water and add in your pasta, reduce heat to medium, and cook until Al Dente, about 8-10 minutes.
2. While the pasta is cooking, make the sauce by placing the avocado, garlic, lemon juice, cilantro, salt and pepper into a food processor or blender. Process until smooth and creamy.
3. When pasta is done cooking, drain and place pasta into a large bowl. Add the sauce to the pasta and toss until pasta is well coated. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.
Note: This pasta dish is best eaten the day it is made.

21 Day Fix Extreme results

21 Day Fix Extreme results
The launch of the 21 day fix a year ago had an effect on beachbody like no other!!  It sold out more than twice, seeing results that at home fitness users had never seen before and of course the nutrition end of losing weight was nailed!!  I know personally after eating clean for me than a year when this program was released it was a big eye opener for portion control and also too much of one thing is not always the best (AKA I was eating too much fruit). Let's talk nutrition, while the 21 day fix allowed for wine and chocolate the 21 Day fix extreme does not.  It is 100% clean eating for these 21 days.  You do have the option to eat out at restaurants but you still have to follow the nutritional guidelines laid out.  Just think about it this way!  You can do anything you put your mind to for 21 days.  You will get the 21 day fix portion controlled containers with your program
*The 21 day fix now holds the number one spot for at home fitness programs. 
21 Day Fix Extreme results

Who should buy the program?

21 Day Fix EXTREME is ideal for those with a dramatic short-term weight
loss deadline--such as an upcoming vacation, photo shoot, or other big event.
It's an excellent next step for 
21 Day Fix
 graduates ready for a new challenge
or graduates of other 
extreme programs like P90X, Insanity, and FOCUS T25.Fix EXTREME
 is also great for those who don't have much weight to lose,
but want to get shredded and see abs; those with a "no BS" attitude toward
workouts and nutrition; or anyone who doesn't want to count calories, weigh
 their food, or follow complicated recipes.
I would not recommend the 21 Day Fix Extreme for a beginner.
This is an advanced program.

  • The program is 21 days long!
  • You do 1 30 minute workout each day.
  • You do not need a lot of space to do this workout.  A 6 square foot area is all that you need.
  • What type of shoes do you need?  Cross Trainers or aerobic shoes are necessary.

The workouts include:  

Plyo Fix Extreme, Upper Fix Extreme, Lower Fix Extreme,
Pilates Fix Extreme, Cardio Fix Extreme, Dirty 30 Fix Extreme  and
Yoga Fix Extreme.
There will be a bonus workout that you get for ordering through a coach plus
there is also additional workouts that you can purchase also.
Power strength extreme and ABC Extreme.

Boneless Buffalo Chicken Wings

Boneless Buffalo Chicken Wings
Over Christmas a family member had made this same recipe and I could not wait to have it again.  As someone that use to work in the restaurant industry regular chicken wings just don't appeal to me.  However I LOVE spicy!!  And this recipe gives you the feeling of spicy and you’re eating something you should not be eating yet the base of it is cauliflower.  Give this a try on your future game days along with some homemade dressing you could use for the rest of the week.
Vegan Buffalo Chicken Wings
1 head of cauliflower, chopped into pieces
1/2 cup flour (I used whole wheat)
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
2 tablespoons canola oil
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Mix together the flour, milk, garlic powder, and salt to form a thin batter.
  3. Coat the cauliflower pieces in the batter and place on a shallow baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 18 minutes.
  5. While the cauliflower is baking, heat the hot sauce and butter together over low heat until the oil is warmed.
  6. Toss the baked cauliflower gently in the hot sauce mixture.
  7. Return to the baking sheet and bake for another 5 minutes.
  8. Serve with ranch dressing or blue cheese, for dipping.
When it comes to picking out clean eating Ranch or Blue Cheese there are other brands that can be better then what you find to be popular on the shelf.  Here are a few homemade recipe as well Ranch & Blue Cheese

Success Trip 2016

Success Trip 2016

Living in Pa today the temperature happens to be around 15 degrees!!  And snow blowing around the house, to sit down and write a blog about the sunny warm weather is refreshing.  I know for a lot of families once you become parents family vacations go out the window they just happen to get cut in the family budge.  How would it feel to help better others with their own quality of life while earning this free trip?
Headed to Jamaica & Haiti March 12th-17th 2016

Success Trip 2016

So why is no the time to become a beachbody coach?

Because right now not only is beachbody offering this amazing FREE trip to coaches willing to help three people a month within challenge groups but offering double success club points towards the trip.  To most of you that means nothing so I will break it down.  Basically it means your earning not only the trip for free but free spending money while you’re there.  Stop and think about your coworkers, baby sitter, Aunt Kelly, a good friend that just had a baby, the hair dresser, and so on that could benefit from support from an online challenge group mixed with great nutrition and an at home fitness program?

Success Trip 2016

Most successful coaches either work full-time or tend to have a lot going on in life but end up finding a passion in helping others.  How do you know if you would be good at it?  Well first it starts with taking a chance, 18 months ago I had no idea if I could do it and truly enjoy being an introvert, could this work for me?  YES!!  It totally did and I have an amazing team of coaches that share the same vision in helping others.  With that being said out of 250,000 coach in 18 months I’ve been able to be in the top 3% of the company, I don’t say that to brag but rather inspire you that if you have a will to change not only the lives of others while changing your own life this could be a good fit.  Once you commit to being a coach you will be enrolled into a 60 day coach basics group to learn the basics of how to run challenge group, expand your network, generate income, goal setting, time management, how to share not sell and how to create balance in life while building a beachbody business. 

Success Trip 2016
Just a few activities that will be available

So with this crazy thing called helping 3 people a month also comes free customer leads each month.  I wanted to share a post from a coach on my team from this past week, she is not just anyone she is, my sister.

"I love my business and God is so faithful! Story time!
Last night I was paying bills online and also wrote out the check for our tithe so that I could take it with us to church this morning. We set aside a regular percentage that we give to God's work through our local church. Of course, coming off of Christmas and a birthday, writing checks this time of the year can feel like "one more thing"! But tithing is a given for us and I don't give it a second thought.
When you are a Team Beachbody coach, there are certain milestones that you can reach each month. When you do, you receive bonus customer referrals the following month. These are people who may have watched an infomercial or whatever and decide to improve their health and you are assigned to them as a coach. This is a great company and I appreciate their generosity towards us coaches as we build our own businesses. Anyways, overnight I had one new referral and earned commission from that and it was a nice bonus this morning. But then there was another referral that ordered quadruple the typical referral order! I was blown away AND thankful this morning when I woke up to a GREAT surprise this morning! God supplies our needs and we never know how HE may choose to go about it!
I have been coaching for 10 months now I really, really enjoy working with my challengers! It is very rewarding to wake up each day and be able to hit the ground running with helping others who are making great strides in changing their own health. I so enjoy people and their stories and giving them the tools and cheering them on along the way! The results can be pretty fantastic! It is because a lot of what I do goes back to the basics of eating right and exercising. We just add in knowledge, accountability and encouragement and then things really come together. I love my challenge groups and can't imagine life without them!"




Success Trip 2016
Over the next week I will be in touch with those wanting change in their lives and wanting to help others do the same.  If being a coach sounds like a good fit for you apply below to be considered for the next smart start coach basics group to learn the in's and out's of coaching to insure your own success.   Also to insure your name goes on the list when it goes live is very important NOW is the time to sign up.
