Paleo McGriddles Swap

Can I just throw this out there?…I fucking love breakfast! It is my favorite meal of the day by FAR! It has been such a blessing working from home because I actually get to spend a lot of time in the kitchen experimenting with all sorts of amazing recipes….and I get to wear pjs all day if I want…just saying. Having PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), it’s really important to me that I eat whole ingredients (as in..I can pronounce everything on the label…no chemicals…and if there is only one ingredient on the label…or no label at all…perfect!!). That being said, Im not going to eat boring eggs with veggies every morning…or plain chicken…or boring salad…sensing a trend? I like to eat. REALLY eat!! So I decided to make a Paleo McGriddles Swap!! Why? Because I’ll admit, McGriddles are pretty delicious!! This Paleo McGriddles Swap is freaking BOMB!! And I don’t just say that…TRUST!!

I know it can be easy to fear fat, fear calories, and want to go for lower calorie/low fat options. But those options are often loaded with chemicals…chemicals that can seriously mess with our bodies causing cravings, health issues…I mean it’s really icky. So my “cysters” out there, it might be time to change it up!! I’m telling you a week of eating only whole ingredients and you’ll  feel like a new woman!

Instructions

Paleo Crockpot Mongolian Beef

Brian and I are starting Core De Force next week and we couldn’t be more excited!! Kickboxing/MMA was the first workout that I really fell in love with so I’m PUMPED for this!! We start it November 1st and our Brawler Bootcamp starts November 14th! I want to start it before our virtual bootcamp starts because I want to be able to give better advice and tips to my amazing group! This is also the first group I’m running WITH Brian which is super exciting!! Leading up to this bootcamp, we have been getting our nutrition in gear! I’ve been trying to make a lot of healthy recipes in our new crockpot!! As a police officer, Brian honestly doesn’t eat the healthiest all of the time, but I’m trying to help! I love that when using my crockpot I can cook in bulk, and I can set it and forget it. Brian LOVED this Paleo Crockpot Mongolian Beef recipe. And it is definitely becoming a staple in our household!!

I’m not paleo but I do try to eat whole natural ingredients as much as possible because of my PCOS. I think that it is really important! In the past I’ve dealt with insulin resistance and I’ve taken all sorts of pills like Metformin, but now I take care of my body naturally and fuel with natural foods, superfoods, etc. That being said, I don’t eat cardboard you guys. I’m not the girl who constantly eat salads (I don’t even really like salads). So I like making the healthier version of the “bad” foods I actually WANT to eat!! Like this Paleo Crockpot Mongolian Beef recipe!! You guys can trust me on this one, it’s bomb!! I served it with cauliflower rice!!

Pumpkin Muffins With Maple Cream Cheese

OMG you guys!! I really can’t even. Fall is upon us and as the basic white girl that I am, all I want is pumpkin. Pumpkin on pumpkin. You get the picture. When I saw the recipe for these pumpkin muffins WITH maple cream cheese I knew I just HAD to make them. Like holy shit right?!

I think people are often surprised by how much I actually eat. But I think not cutting corners and actually fueling my body properly (without going overboard) has been so key to my long term success. You guys all know I love my wine, I have it a few nights a week. Kettle cooked potato chips…at least twice a week. And if I can make something scrumptious that I don’t even have to count as a treat or a cheat like these pumpkin muffins? Count me the heck in!! I want to feel satiated and like I still get to indulge!

Having PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is (excuse my language) a bitch. Before I was really conscious of the ingredients that I was putting into my body, I was constantly bloated and gaining weight no matter what I tried. That’s why I try to focus on whole natural ingredients that are easy on my body. Nothing overly processed (unless it’s my occasional chips, etc. as mentioned. I’m not perfect guys!!). So these pumpkin muffins with maple cream cheese are right up my alley. They taste like they should be bad for you…but they are not! And they are 21 Day Fix container approved (also The Master’s Hammer and Chisel, 22 Minute Hard Corps, Country Heat, etc.). I really do love this container system because I don’t have to count calories or overthink everything (I used to count compulsively).

I hope you guys enjoy them as much as I do!!!

Almond Flour Crust Pizza

Like most people, I freaking love pizza…no, really. I FREAKING love pizza. When I first started living a healthy lifestyle, I was convinced that the only way to be “healthy” was to eat plain boring lean meat, with plain boring veggies, and the occasional complex carb. As I’ve learned more and evolved, I’ve realized that I can ABSOLUTELY have the foods I love, I just need to make the healthier version! By swapping a regular crust for an almond flour crust, I am able to cut carbs AND give my body a whole ingredient that does more for my body! This almond flour crust pizza is delicious!!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Almond Meal/Flour

Paleo & Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

I really wanted to share this DELICIOUS Paleo & Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin recipe with you!! I often get asked what I eat to keep my weight off, and also what I eat as a woman dealing with PCOS. A PCOS recipe (to me) is one that doesn’t spike my blood sugar and manages my insulin.

Insulin is a key hormone as it transports sugar from the blood into the muscles of the body, allowing the body to effectively make use of the energy from glucose. High insulin levels completely mess up your body, leading to a lot of the symptoms of PCOS like, increased hair growth, weight gain, fatty liver and high cholesterol, polycystic ovaries and an irregular menstrual cycle, not to mention increased hunger levels and cravings. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? I know for me, the irregular periods and hunger/cravings are a pain in the ASS! So, management of blood insulin levels is crucial in the management of PCOS. A PCOS recipe that helps you manage your insulin is really what you are looking for. Refined carbohydrates cause a spike in insulin levels and should absolutely be avoided. Also, foods that are high in fat will lead to weight gain and high cholesterol.

Many doctors will recommend a low GI diet of wholegrain, unprocessed foods in the management of PCOS. So that is my goal! I get asked often if I’m “paleo” or “gluten free” and my honest answer is no..I try to focus on whole ingredients, low GI foods, and foods that will satiate my hunger giving my body dense nutrition that it NEEDS. No empty calories here!

I love this Paleo & Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin recipe because all of the ingredients are in their most natural and purest form. No crazy chemicals that our bodies have to figure out!! And while no recipe is a quote unquote PCOS recipe, in my opinion, this is a great option!

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5-6 tbsp coconut oil or ghee, melted
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda and sea salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine combine eggs, honey, vanilla, and coconut oil/ghee.
  4. Combine both mixtures together. Once well incorporated, add blueberries and mix.
  5. Fill a muffin pan with liners. Fill each liner with batter.
  6. Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes

Toasted Kale Salad Recipe from Fixate

To be honest, I’m actually not a salad lover. I kind of resisted making this Toasted Kale Salad recipe from Fixate because salads really aren’t my thing. I think it was because this salad is a TOASTED Kale Salad that I actually decided to try it. And for real, it was totally delicious!

I’m trying to make sure I am hyper focused on my fitness and nutrition because Brian and I are off to the Bahamas and Jamaica on the Beachbody Success Club cruise in only 25 days!! Beachbody rewards their coaches for changing lives and gives us ways to earn free trips and all other sorts of cool opportunities and gifts!

I definitely used to be the kind of person that had a “winter body.” I wouldn’t care about putting on weight in the winter and then as the countdown for summer began, I’d take it off again. But let’s be real, that roller coaster isn’t healthy. It’s a really cool feeling to find out I’m going on vacation only weeks before and I’m not freaking out. I’m in control of my body. It took me a long time to get to this place but I’m proud of how far I’ve come.

And being the girly girl that I am..vacation immediately meant shopping. Shocker, am I right?! I feel like because I lost so much weight and I’ve reclaimed my life, I lean towards bikinis in terms of swimwear. And no, this isn’t because I have some rockin bod. I think it’s because I was ashamed of my body for so long, that now I love any chance I get to dress up and show it off. Believe me, if I was trying to give the illusion of a perfect body, I’d only wear one pieces because of the crazy amount of stretch marks I have. A few years ago, even typing the words stretch marks into a blog post would have made me want to throw up. But now, I’m proud. This tiger earned her stripes. I swear when I was in Puerto Rico in December, I kind of wanted someone to mention it or point them out (maybe they’d think I had a baby or something), and I’d proudly tell my story. That’s all stretch marks are. They tell your story. We all have them, stop the stretch mark shame!

Anyway, back to shopping (haha). I bought this monokini from Victoria’s Secret.

Monokini from Victoria's Secret

Yes, it is a “one piece” but I think it’s HOT! Although my friends lovingly pointed out the hilarious tan lines I will have. I think if I only wear it one of the days I’ll be ok…right? Check out the back, I’m obsessed!

Monokini from Victoria's Secret Back

I’m also terrified because I have been warned that these bathing suits don’t look great on everyone. So I’ll definitely be posting a picture for some honest opinions on my Instagram and  Facebook. I definitely still struggle with insecurities, I’m only human. Personal development has been helping a lot. I know I’ve posted about it a few times on here, but if you haven’t read You’re a Badass by Jen Sincero, you have to!!

I’m also incredibly excited for the cruise to see my success partner/best friend Sarah. I swear, she and I are the same person. Our brains work the same way (which is a hard feat to accomplish because I’m CRAZY, haha). We both love our systems, organization, planning, etc. It is so important to have positive people in your life that uplift you. I know it might seem painful, but you need to cut ties with the negative Nellie’s in your life. They say you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with, and I absolutely believe that to be true.

Sarah and I

Paleo Crispy Chicken Recipe!

Before I share this paleo crispy chicken recipe I want to squash a myth I hear a lot!! I have noticed that for some reason so many people think that on the 21 Day Fix Meal Plan and The Master’s Hammer and Chisel Plan, you don’t eat enough. It’s crazy to me because I literally can’t finish all of my containers for the day. It feels like SO much food! I literally have challengers coming to me asking if they should lower their calorie bracket just because it seems like so much but NO!! You can eat and be satisfied while still losing weight!!

Breakfast and Personal Development

This morning I had two eggs with mozzarella cheese, as well as oatmeal with protein powder and sunflower seed butter. That’s a lot of food! I always eat the most in the morning!

21 Day Fix Approved Breakfast

I always start my mornings with personal development because working on ourselves is so so important! I resisted it for so long but it truly is a GAME CHANGER. I also get stressed out really easily so I’m trying to try the whole meditation thing. Usually, I can’t get into that kind of stuff and it seems a little hippie dippie to me but I’m trying it. Currently I’m readying 10% Happier, I’m listening to Developing The Leader Within by John C. Maxwell, I’m finishing The Magic of Thinking Big, and I’m starting Awaken The Giant Within. You must be thinking..well damn, that’s A LOT of personal development. YES IT IS!!! I want to accomplish some amazing things in my life and I know that I can only go a far as I can GROW. One of my recent big takeaways is about failure. I finished John C. Maxwell’s book Failing Forward and it had a profound impact on me. He says that you might fail at something, but you are not a failure. He also says:

He who never makes mistakes, never makes anything.

We have to make mistakes and “fail” in order to reach our goals. No one usually nails it right out of the gate. That’s why I also love it when he says:

If at first you DO succeed, try something harder.

So much yes!! I know you might want to resist it with every fiber of your being, but don’t! It really does make a huge difference in your life!

Anyway, in addition to mornings, I also do personal development while I cook and clean. I mean why not?!

I made this Cracklin Chicken Recipe from Nom Nom Paleo for Brian and he really loved it!

Cracklin’ Chicken

Serves 4

Gather these ingredients:

  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (approximately 4 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ghee
  • 2 teaspoons seasoning blend of choice (optional)

Directions:

Grab some chicken thighs and a sharp pair of kitchen shears. Blot the chicken dry with a paper towel. Starting at one end, carefully cut out the bone, making sure you don’t cut through the meat. Stay as close to the bone as possible. When you get to the other end, trim around the joint and cartilage and remove the bone. If extra skin or fat is flapping around and hanging off the thighs, you can trim it off as well. But don’t cut too much away, because the skin will shrink when you fry it. Flatten the chicken with a meat pounder (or cut a gash in the thickest part of each thigh piece with your scissors) to ensure uniform cooking. Turn the chicken skin-side-up, and sprinkle salt on the skin from way up high, like it’s snowing. That way, the skin will be seasoned evenly.

Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat.

Melt the ghee in the pan and place four chicken thighs skin-side down in the hot pan. Season the meat side with your favorite seasoning blend. Let the skin fry undisturbed until crispy and golden brown (around 7-10 minutes), rotating the pan 90 degrees at the halfway point to make sure the heat from the burner is uniformly distributed. Cover with a splatter guard or something comparable to avoid getting your stove messy and burning yourself!! Flip the chicken and cook for 3 more minutes or until cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a wire rack and rest ’em for 5 minutes.

Repeat the steps above with the four remaining thighs.

When you’re ready to eat, slice them up and dig in!

Stuffed Zucchini Recipe

You are going to LOVE this stuffed zucchini recipe!!!

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Quinoa, rinsed

4 medium Zucchini

1 15-ounce can Cannellini beans, Rinsed

1/2 cup Almonds, chopped (about 2 ounces)

2 cloves Garlic, chopped

3/4 cup grated Parmesan (3 ounces)

4 tablespoons Olive Oil

 

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400° F. In a large saucepan, combine the quinoa and 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes.

Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a narrow spoon. Arrange in a baking dish, cut-side up. Season the zucchini with some salt and pepper.

image

Fluff the quinoa with a fork and add in the beans, almonds, garlic, ½ cup of the Parmesan, and 3 tablespoons of the oil.

image

Spoon the mixture into the zucchini. Top with the remaining tablespoon of oil and ¼ cup Parmesan. Cover with foil and bake until the zucchini is tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until golden, 8 to 10 minutes.

image

Full disclosure, the quinoa mixture was so good that I ended up eating some of it out of the pan with a spoon. Although, I do love it with the zucchini.

21 Day Fix Sweet Potato Fries Recipe (The Master’s Hammer and Chisel TOO!)

Ok, sorry for being MIA for a bit there. I got sick (FMLife right?!). But I have to share this 21 Day Fix Sweet Potato Fries recipe because it has become EVERYTHING in my household. Brian is obsessed too! (and since he doesn’t normally eat healthy..I call that a girlfriend WIN!). I’m still crushing goals with The Master’s Hammer and Chisel. I’m honestly so obsessed with this program. Lifting is where it’s at!!! I’m seeing changes in my body like never before for REAL! And it’s not just me! The girls that started with me on January 4th are CRUSHING it! I’m so proud! My group is multi-program. But most of my girls are doing either the 21 Day Fix or The Master’s Hammer and Chisel!

This recipe is absolutely 21 Day Fix and The Master’s Hammer and Chisel approved!!

Sweet Potato Fries

Ingredients:

  • 2 large garnet yams
  • 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt

 

Directions:

I preheated the oven to 375 F on convection bake (or 400 F in a non-convection oven).

I peeled the yams and cut them into somewhat even slices (I’m no chef, let’s be real!). Then, I placed them on a foil-lined baking tray…and tossed the yams with the olive oiI and sea salt! I put the fries in the oven for about 30 minutes, flipping the fries and tray halfway through!

This recipe can totally be used on the 21 Day Fix or The Master’s Hammer and Chisel as a yellow container (or two depending on how many servings you use!!). Just portion it out! Seriously, it’s so easy to make and totally tastes sinful! Brian adds a little bit of Truvia to his but that’s just his preference!
