Taking control of your snack foods is key to getting on track with your fitness results.
Sweet Potato Steak Fries
I have an exciting recipe for you to try today that’s almost too tasty to be healthy. By cooking these phenomenal sweet potato steak fries in the oven, you’re able to enjoy your favorite side dish without the guilt!
You won’t even notice that these fries are baked and not fried – the flavors are THAT good! By baking at a very high oven temp – 500 degrees F – and by heating up the pan beforehand, these fries get crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, just like a steak fry should be! Make lots and enjoy!
Fitness Stir Fried Rice
When sticking with a clean diet, as you work toward your fitness goals, it’s a great idea to make healthier versions of your favorite foods, in order to keep your hunger satiated and to prevent falling off the healthy eating wagon.
Today I have a remake of stir-fried rice for you that is made with fiber-filled cauliflower instead of grain-filled rice and has flavor and protein additions galore. This version of cauliflower rice is PACKED with protein! Eggs and albacore tuna make this rice the perfect side to your meal when you’re on a mission to slim down.
Toasted Lemon Quinoa Cabbage Salad
Here’s a unique new salad recipe to try, that’s far from ordinary. With cabbage, green olives, chickpeas, quinoa and a lemony dressing, this salad really satisfies! It’s fantastic as a meal all on its own, or to be served with a larger meal.
There are many elements of this salad that stand out, most particularly the green olives. With a creamy feel and smooth taste, these olives are a perfect pair with the lemony dressing. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself making this salad time and time again – and sharing with your friends and family. Enjoy!
Spinach & Egg White Wraps
A wholesome breakfast kick-starts your metabolism and helps you to burn more calories throughout the day.
This wrap is delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s ready in a flash, tastes amazing, and is filled with lean protein, veggies and whole sprouted grains. Try it today, but don’t be surprised if you get hooked!
Thai Steak Salad
When you are eating for fat loss, a big salad is one of the best things that you can eat for dinner. It’s a wonderful blend of veggies that are high in fiber and you can top it off with a hearty serving of protein. Really any mixture of fresh veggies and lean, cooked meat will do. Try to keep your rotation of veggies and protein new and exciting.
Got leftover grilled flank steak? Here’s a vibrant mix of fresh veggies to serve it up with! For the dressing use a simple drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and freshly cracked salt and pepper. Enjoy!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
Today I’m sharing a delicious way to satisfy your sweet tooth. These homemade protein bars are quick to make, about 20 minutes from start to end, and they make a healthy on-the-go snack. You may want to make a double batch and store extras in the freezer!
Don’t let your sweet tooth sabotage your results. Stick with high protein, wholesome sweets like these homemade protein bars instead of processed, sugary items.
No Tortilla Chicken Soup
A bowl of this homemade soup is a wonderful meal to enjoy during the holidays. It’s low carb and filled with protein and veggies to power your day and curb your cravings. Best of all it’s made in the slow cooker, so preparation is quick and easy.
Most tortilla soup recipes contain ingredients that are high in carbs, like tortilla strips and rice. In this recipe I’ve removed these ingredients and filled in the gaps with high fiber cauliflower rice. What’s great is that you get all of the tortilla soup flavors that you love without the extra calories.
Red Bean and Lentil Casserole
Here’s another guilt-free pasta recipe for you! You won’t need a spiral slicer for this one, simply use a regular veggie peeler – like the kind you would use to peel the skin from a potato – to create long, flat zucchini noodles. This recipe has a scrumptious, nutty flavor that will make you forget all about traditional noodles. Feel free to serve with some sliced chicken breast, sliced hard-boiled eggs or steak for added protein. Enjoy!
If you love coleslaw, then this salad recipe will quickly become your new favorite. While most coleslaw recipes contain a heavy, creamy dressing this one is made with guilt-free Greek yogurt. We’ve also added in some chickpeas for the boost of protein and fiber.
Make an effort to lighten up more of your favorite recipes by employing techniques like swapping out heavy cream for Greek yogurt or swapping refined sugar for coconut palm sugar or stevia. It’s small dietary changes like that over the long haul that will ultimately make the biggest impact on your health and fitness. Enjoy!
