Are you looking for something fun to do with family and friends that will also fit in with your healthy lifestyle? If so, I have the event for you – The Color Vibe 5K.
For those of you that are interested in the recipe for the chicken shown in the last post, Roasted Asparagus, here it is! Those of you who follow the Ideal Protein Plan, this isn’t 100% phase 1 because there is some cheese involved. However, you could forgo the cheese or try some veggie cheese. Both options would be equally as delicious.
Looking for a side dish that is super easy? Then this recipe is for you! I love asparagus, but roasted asparagus takes it to a whole new level. Crispy, crunchy, and kind of reminds you of a green french fry…this roasted asparagus is the way to go! Pair the asparagus with your favorite protein and dinner is served! (I will post the recipe for the chicken in the picture next!)
If you are new to the workout game I suggest starting with walking. It’s an easy way to get moving without overworking yourself.
The CDC suggests that adults should get 10,000 steps a day. 10,000 seems like a big number, but the steps add up quicker than you think. Just add all this up…walking through the grocery store or mall counts, walking on your lunch break counts, trips to the bathroom count, the list could go on. You can easily get to 10,000 steps if you actively try to achieve it.
Here are some of my suggestions to make walking a part of your daily routine:
Here is another healthy reboot of one of my favorite recipes. Have you ever had those meatballs with the chili sauce and grape jelly? Those things are delicious, but not really the best for you. To alter the recipe I just cut down on the sugar. By adding the sugar (in this case Splenda brown sugar) myself, instead of using the sweetness from the jelly, I was able to control how much sugar was added.
Also, by using riced cauliflower, instead of rice, I was able to cut out a load of carbs.
This recipe is also a great one for meal prepping. You can easily make a couple batches of the meatballs and freeze them for later use. Also, to make cooking easier this is a perfect slow cooker recipe.
