Last week I had lunch with a friend from out of town.  She is by far one of the sweetest souls I know! We had a wonderful time talking about our families, jobs and passions.  We also came to lunch bearing gifts for one another.  I brought her my clean eating manual that I review during my clean eating webinars.  And she brought me.......WAIT FOR IT.......a Nike+Fuelband!!!!! (I think I won out on this deal.......) I guess it's nice to know people who work for Nike corporate, right??  She told me that I could keep the Fuelband for myself, or do a giveaway on my blog and for my fans on Facebook over at Fit and Healthy with Debbie Reichert.  Of course, I chose to do a giveaway because I truly LOVE giving stuff away!

AMRAP Anyone????

When I am short on time, I love a good AMRAP workout.  AMRAP stands for As Many Rounds As Possible.  So basically you just start with the first exercise and continue on to the next and the next with as little break as possible (for 20 straight minutes in this case).  Take a break as you need to, but the whole point is to bust it out rather quickly and document how many rounds that you completed in the 20 minutes.

Live Life!

I love that phrase.  Live Life!!!  We can get caught up in the day to day struggles, responsibilities and sometimes just forget to LIVE......

The world's EASIEST "clean" meal

As an avid "clean eater," I've found that my cooking has actually gotten so much EASIER than it used to be when I was cooking with all sorts of crazy sauces and marinades.  Easy is good when you are a working Mom fo sho!!!! So I present to you the world's easiest healthy meal that the whole family will eat.  SCORE!!

Here is what you do:
Take a whole organic chicken.  Rinse it and please make sure to remove that little bag of innards as well. Pat it dry and sprinkle it with some Chef Paul Prudhomme's Poultry seasoning (or really any of your favorite seasoning will do).  This line is just one of my faves! They have a great one for steak and fish as well.

Then just dump the chicken in the slow cooker and put in the bottom about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of chicken stock or water.  Cook on low for about 6 hours or so.

Grilled tilapia with brown rice and roasted veggies

Easiest "clean" dinner EVER!!!!

I bought a couple pounds of of tilapia at Earth Fare today, brought it home and seasoned it up with some salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika on both sides.  While the hubs was grilling it up I had some cauliflower and broccoli in the oven, roasting at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.  Before putting it in the oven I just drizzled it with some extra virgin olive oil and seasoned with the same seasonings that I had seasoned the fish with.  I had some brown rice already made up earlier in the day (because it takes so FREAKING long) that I had cooked in chicken stock, so I simply heated that up and dinner was ready in a snap.  Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice over the fish when serving and voila!

Banana Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

I love pancakes!  But gone are the days of making them with white flour with some chocolate chips thrown in (unless of course it's time for a good cheat meal).  But on any normal, given day I just prefer to make them with oats and pack them full of protein.  They serve as a great pre or post workout meal and they are SO GOOD!!  I almost feel guilty eating them because they are that good. Recently, I made just a few minor changes to one of my favorite protein pancake recipes and came up with the following.  I enjoyed these for breakfast today while my kids enjoyed their special chocolate chip pancakes.  Everybody won.

Clean Eating Challenge grocery list

In preparation for our clean eating challenge, it will be imperative to do a little shopping to get some key foods for the challenge.  It isn't all that complicated.  We will really be eating food in it's most natural state so you will find your meals and snacks to be rather simple actually!  Our ultimate goal is to stay away from most processed foods. So, in order to get us started on the right foot, I'll give you a list of some foods that you can have on hand in order to make this challenge a success. And make sure to read my previous blog post to get a true feel for what exactly we mean by eating clean.
