Hopefully you were able read my post from yesterday..if not here is the link for it https://thedaltons622.wordpress.com/2016/05/25/trying-to-be-creative/ Now in yesterdays post I spoke about ways to be creative with the 21 day food list, and trying to create new recipes , so that i’m not eating the same things everyday. Here is a new recipe that I came up with this morning, and actually ate this for my breakfast this morning. Try it out and see how you like it, and as always if you have any 21 day approved recipes please share. Thanks for reading.
So I have recently started my 21 Day Fix program, yet again. I’m hoping for some really good results this time around. My biggest problem with this meal plan, is that I don’t get creative with my meals. I am going to keep a food diary here for the next 21 days, to show my food. If anyone ready this has any 21 day fix approved meals, please share. I would love to see some desserts also.
The 1st picure consist of shrimp 1 red, Spinich 1 Green, and brown rice 1 Yellow.
2nd pic, my morning breakfast goto. Turkey Bacon wrapped around eggs 2Red, quiona 1 Yellow, banana 1 purple, with cinnamon on top, this is my oatmeal..lol.
Today I have decided to restart my diet. With the Thanksgiving Holiday finally over and all of my sweets (Cakes and Pies) are almost gone, I have decided to hit the restart button YET AGAIN. This morning I am starting off with a really healthy breakfast using Mixed Greens, Mushrooms, Onions, and Turkey Sausage, and 2 Eggs. This is a really wholesome and healthy breakfast, and really gives a lot of energy to carry you thru the day. Hope you enjoy this short video.
Being on the 21 Day Fix Program is really amazing, Im learning how to eat healthy with certain foods. Im a person who really loves to cook, but cooking healthy is not my thing. When it comes to breakfast I am a really a basic eater. I love pancakes, but not really able to eat pancakes on this plan, unless they are whole wheat pancakes. So I spotted this really delicious meal and I have been hooked on it for the past 2 weeks. Its really healthy and filling. I pair it with apples or another fruit and im filled up for the rest of the morning. Its quick and simple. Read further for the recipe.
2 hard boiled eggs (Red Cup)
Half a cup of Avocado (Blue Cup)
Boil your eggs, once boiled and cracked put in a bowl and mash together with the avocado, add a little sea salt and onion if you like, and your done. I put this on a whole wheat English muffin and I am ready to eat a hearty filling breakfast.
Its Sunday Dinner time for my family, and even though im dieting, I still have to fix up a nice family dinner. Today I have decided to fix a delicious Chicken and Rice Dinner using Uncle Bens Wild Rice.
In order to keep the sodium level down, I do not recommend using the flavor pack with the rice, I normally put it aside and use it for another meal. Instead im using Campbell’s Cream Soups.
This is very easy to make, with little clean up. Lets Get Started.
Here you will find what you need.
12 Chicken Legs
1-2 Boxes of Uncle Bens Wild Long Grain Rice
1 Can each, Cream of Chicken, Cream of Onion, and Cream of Chicken and Mushroom Soup
Your Choice of Seasons for Chicken, I use Tyme and Rosemary
Wash and Dry and Season Chicken
2. Mix Rice and all of Cream Soups together
3. Layer the mixture of Rice on the bottom of a foil try, and on top of that add your chicken.
4. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour on 350 degrees, once the hour is up, uncover and back another hour, until chicken is crispy and brown.
I will be pairing this with a Green Bean Cassarole, and Homemade Brownies for dessert. Hope you enjoy.
Well… I have started on yet another Diet Journey. The past month I have been using the Beachbody fitness program. The program Im using is the 21 day fix paired with Shaun T’s Insanity Max 30, and love it, until my back took a turn for the worse 2 weeks ago. Although I was on the last week, of the 1st month of Max 30, I still was able to keep up my clean eating program with the 21 day fix. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to start my exercise routine back, and continue to loose a few more pounds before Christmas, and MAYBE, Just Maybe I will be able to fit into those size 14 jeans by Christmas. im going to post a few of my favorite new recipe’s that I have come up with, using the 21 day fix diet plan. There are so many options that you can choose, and I really do love this plan.
This is a simple but hearty breakfast that will leave you really full and I always accompany this with a fruit such as grapes or a small apple. Here are the steps for this.
What you will need:
Spinach and Kale
3/4c Egg White Egg Beaters
2 Slices of Turkey Bacon
Now if you are using the 21 Day Fix , I normally pack my Green Container full with the Spinach and Kale, and add the Mushrooms and Onions on top, that will count as 1 Green. Sauté that over 1-2tsp of Olive Oil, once that has cooked down, add your Turkey Bacon, and let simmer for about 1-2 mins, on low heat. Your greens will begin to shrink. Once all of the veggies and bacon have combined together, add your Egg Whites to the mixture, and start to scramble once the eggs have set.
The way I tally this meal…
Egg Whites and Turkey Bacon (1Red)
Spinach, Kale, Onions and Mushrooms (1Green)
Grapes or small apple (1 Purple)
The bottom Picture is not a really good Picture of this wonderful meal, try and it and see what you think.
Today I created a Healthy and Easy quick-lunch recipe. I wanted to the taste of one of my favorite Chinese Restaurants, but I know that im not able to eat that on my diet. I had some left over Quinoa in the fridge and did not want that to go to waste, so I put on my thinking cap and came up with this light recipe.
1-2 Cups of Quinoa
3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
20 Asparagus Cut
3 tsp Light Soy Sauce
4 Tbsp Stir Fry Sauce
2 Tbsp Garlic
1-2 tsp Lemon Juice
Cook Quinoa as directed on package.
Cut up Chicken thighs into bite size piece. Pour Olive Oil into a skillet, and add in garlic. Sautee for 2-3 mins and then add in Chicken. Brown the chicken pieces untill no longer pink. Add in cut up asparagus, and Quinoa and cook an additional 5 mins on med. Once the asparagus are tender, add Soy Sauce and Stir Fry Sauce, and cook for 5 mins. Before taking off the stove add in 2 tsp of lemon juice and stir and Enjoy.
