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.
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.
I can not believe that I have stuck with this starvation diet HCG1234 Diet for 6 days, I have amazed myself. As of my last post, I was on my last day of the Loading Phase, well since then I have actually started my Loose Phase which is considered Phase 2. Day1 of phase 2, I was really hungry, but able to stick to the plan. I ate a lot of tuna and chicken, and of course drank lots of water. My weight on Day 3 was 222.0. As of today, I am at 215.2, which is a total of 6.8 pounds lost. I will except and be happy with that. I am learning how to eat small portions of low-calorie foods, and it seems to be working really well. As the days go on my hunger pains are getting less. One problem I do have is mind control. When its time for my family to sit down and have their dinner, my mind starts telling me to eat what they are eating, and that can be really rough. I’m not sure how im gonna make it thru Soul Food Sunday tomorrow, I guess it will be determination.
As far as exercise goes, this week I was able to go work out on the treadmill and also lifted some weights. Now that I kinda know how this works, next week one of my main focuses will be to incorporate exercise in with this and see how well it goes. I’m hoping to be able to return to Zumba this week, I have been working a lot trying to get ready for Christmas. So maybe that will help with loosing some extra pounds.
To sum it up, at this moment I am very happy with this diet, I am a little hungry at times, but I have been able to curve my appetite with some mints, and water, and that seems to help a lot. I have energy, but I am also taking B12 Vitamins also, only on days that I have had low energy levels. I am ready to take this another week, and see how it goes. Below you will see pics of some of my foods that I have been eating.
