15 minute best red curry ever. Did I mention it's clean?


I have got a bowl full of yum!

The time has come again for me to do my 3 day cleanse. When I first did the cleanse it was much harder for me. Now it is so easy. I actually feel too full to finish my daily food portions. I love it because you get to eat real food.  If you are interested in trying out a 3 day no exercise cleanse, email me and I will send you over all the info. It is Vegan, Organic, Non-gmo, whole food cleanse.


This is the quickest easiest meal you can make... IF you have a trader joes nearby. When I am in a time bind I buy their asian stir fry veggie blend and whip this up. This is my go to meal when I am cleansing. It contains the veggies needed and your healthy fat. Totally cleanse approved. When we are not cleansing we just add our favorite chicken, fish or shrimp. You can add zoodles for a vegan thai ramen. We love it and I would eat it on or off the cleanse any day of the week!


15 minute Clean Red Curry  


1 tablespoon avocado oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp ginger minced
1 jar red curry paste (4Tbsp estimate)
4 cups broth
1 15-ounce can coconut milk
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 package asian stir fry veggies mix from trader joes
-or-
Mixed raw veggies of choice (example: bell pepper, onion, mushroom, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots etc.)


Put on the stove a large pot (that has a lid for later use) with the oil on medium-high heat. Add the garlic, ginger, and veggies and cook them them until they are fragrant .. just a few minutes.

Add the curry paste. Stir everything together.

After a few minutes, add the broth, coconut milk, and fish sauce. Cover with the lid and bring everything to a boil.

Let the soup simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. 
Serve!

OPTIONAL: Serve with Lime Wedge, Jalapeno slices and 1 tsp freshly chopped Cilantro.

What is your sleep score?


For the past 15 years I have been sleeping on a "luxury" tempurpedic mattress. It cost us a couple grand back in the day and I was so excited to get it. I had problems with it from the beginning. I would wake up with back pain all the time. Being a side sleeper, it didn't work for me at all. I needed a firmer mattress but I never did anything about it. Couple car accidents later and it really became clear I needed a new mattress to support me.
Enter Tomorrow Sleep.
The first truly connected sleep system with the knowledge, research and engineering expertise of Serta Simmons Bedding. Their hybrid mattress works if you sleep flat, sideways or somewhere in between.
I have to tell you... after a week on this mattress I am a believer. I was a believer the first night, but it just keeps getting better. My husband is now in love with it too, took him about 5 days to admit it, and now as he said "This new mattress is MUCH better than that tempurpedic".
They sent us a sleep tracker to use and this is my report. This was my score with having a puppy that wakes me to go to the bathroom twice a night. The sleep score is an indicator of your overall sleep quality. The total amount of sleep you get is the most important factor, with sleep efficiency, time spent in different sleep phases, and the number of times you wake up during the night contributing as well. A sleep score of 75 is good, 80 or higher is excellent. So I am #winning !!! This is why I am waking up so refreshed and honestly why I can't wait to get back in it at the end of each day. I LOVE this Hybrid Mattress!!
If you want to get your hands on the best hybrid mattress out there, then use code DINNER150 at checkout. This will work for $150 off any $500 purchase.
They offer a 100 night trial too. SO try it out! See what a good nights sleep can do for your health!

The key to a good night's sleep

That feeling when you get an AMAZING nights sleep!
#Winning

Along with diet, exercise and mindfulness, #sleep has the power to change your life, so I teamed up with the BEST hybrid mattress company out there... Tomorrow Sleep! @tomorrow 

This #mattress is designed to help you fall asleep faster and stay in deep sleep longer, and the ONLY mattress designed to adjust to your body temperature and provide the support essential to restorative sleep.

The better you understand what you do while you sleep, the more you can improve how you feel when you step out of bed. There are three key stages of sleep, and each one plays its part — from restoring our mind and body, to helping us process memory, emotion and information. When we spend enough time in each stage, we wake up feeling fresh and energized, ready to take on the day ahead.

I have been sleeping on an expensive temperpedic for the majority of my adult life and to be honest... it hurts my back. It has been amazing to sleep on this new mattress and be able to wake up pain free. Struggling with slipped discs, I NEED support and this medium firm hybrid mattress does the trick!

Check them out, and

Office anywhere Freelife vs the 9-5 grind... no more paycheck to paycheck

My hubs snapped this shot of me "working" this morning. This is me on most days. On my patio, in my backyard, with all my furbabies. I LOVE animals can you tell? 😊 I remember back in the day when I had to leave them to go to work and it broke my heart. So grateful for this life by design now. I get to be with them and that makes my heart so happy.
.
What about you?
.
Do you have to leave your babies (fur or human) and want to stay home? Have you found that life as an adult isn't everything it's cracked up to be? Did the dreams you have as a kid fall short because of.. massive student loan debt? 60 hour work weeks? Limited time off and flexibility in your career? The paycheck to paycheck grind controls your life? 
.
Three years ago, I was in the same position. It was at that time that I was introduced to the Coach opportunity. At first, I blew the opportunity off. I signed up only for the discount because I am a #CancerSurvivor and NEEDED the nutrition to help me, well… live! I didn't think I was fit enough or healthy enough to coach others. I didn't know if I had time or the energy to help since I was on my own journey recovering. But I found when I shared about my journey, it was helping others, they started reaching out and asking what I was doing and if they too could do it with me. I couldn’t believe that this 65 pound over weight, over 40 woman, was inspiring others. And to be honest, even with 90% insurance coverage, we were left with $32,000 in medical bills. I couldn't stand the paycheck to paycheck life anymore, so I decided to give it a shot.

Now, I'm living the life that I LOVE. With hard work and determination, I've built a six figure business from home, and the best part is that it's based upon helping other people reach their health and fitness goals. I feel fulfilled in my new career. I feel like I'm making a difference in the lives of others while earning more income than I ever would have in my corporate career; and I have so much more flexibility and freedom too.
.

Imagine what your life would look like if you had an extra $500 a month for expenses... 
Imagine what your life would look like if you could create your own schedule...
Imagine what your life would look like if you were your own boss...
.

I want to help you achieve the life you dream about. I will show you how to build your own at home fitness business STEP BY STEP through the same process that I've used to find such great success. If you'd like to learn a bit more about how to join my ELITE TEAM (top 1%), message me or drop your favorite emoji!
.
I can help you fly IF YOU DO THE WORK! There is no guarantee any level of success or income from the Coaching Opportunity. Each Coach’s income depends on his or her own efforts, diligence, and skill. I believe in you. You ready to take action?

How I push through the hard days.

I used to just crumble on hard days. I would put the pillow over my head and hope for a better tomorrow. Until I realized nothing would change unless I changed it, and that includes my mindset.
Truth is, we are the only ones that can change our life, our day, our minute. No one can or will do it for us. So I learned to argue with myself.

I acknowledge my feelings and emotions. I write them down.
I have cramps.
My head hurts.
I am tired.

Then I write down the solution.

I have cramps, but I will feel better after I stretch and move my body.
My head hurts, but I will feel better after I hydrate myself and fuel my body with a healthy meal.
I am tired, but once I have some green tea/ or coffee/ or my morning energy drink I will start waking up and feeling better.

I take  deep breath and say: " I am so thankful for another day to get better . " and 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.... I get up and start moving. I got that trick from the 5 second rule by Mel Robbins. It works.

I have a rule that I am not allowed to do ANYTHING until I get my workout in. I HAVE to do it first thing. Some days I KILL that workout, other days I barely crawl across the finish line. I just have to show up and do my best THAT DAY, one move at a time.

30 minutes later I have finished what will probably be the hardest thing I face that day. I walk through the day lighter, proud, and confident.

That right there is my equation for being my own hero. Give it a shot. If you need help finding a workout program, I have got ya covered, just hit me up! momwhatsfordinner@yahoo.com

Celebrating

It is #WomanCrushWednesday and I am crushing hard on some of the amazing souls I got to sweat with for the past 6 weeks. We are all different shapes and sizes all with different goals.

Tas Scott-Gass is on the quest for abs with me and she shed a TON of inches and pounds and one day closer to the toned tummy she craves.

 Erika Jade Curtis and Amanda Desiree Orth were looking to shed some pounds and get stronger and they both achieved it and are still going strong.


 Christina Lee Gamble came to me when she hit a plateau and over the past 6 weeks she lost 20 pounds and is still going strong!
 Reigna Fall who wanted to reclaim her pre-baby weight, she just had her son 7 months ago guys and she is stronger, and healthier than she was pre-pregnancy!
 Morissa Mercaldo wanted to lose some tummy softness and gain abs and she did just that.

These are just a few of my daily familiar faces that help me push through to my goals just as much as I help them. The accountability, friendship and encouragement are 100% what gets me through the hard days, and propels me further on the great days.
Whatever your obstacle...whatever your goal is, I can help get you there! Come sweat it out with me and these ladies each day in our online community and see what it does for you! It changed our lives...Why Not You???

It is the perfect time to get started. Try it out for a week before you make it a permanent lifestyle with Clean Week! We start October 7th, but registration closes October 6th with limited spaces. EMAIL me and lets get ya signed up!

Make it for a week before you make it a lifestyle.

Happy Tuesday!

I have taken a long break from daily blogging/writing. Mostly because I write best in solitude. My life changed so much during my cancer recovery, I am such a different person, I rarely have solitude anymore. So the result has been ... less writing. I do love to write and express myself, so I am going to attempt to getting back into daily journaling here, even if it is just a quote or something to ponder.At least Monday - Friday, a girls gotta have breaks and time unlpugged. 🙂

Oh and I plan to use emoji's. I don't care if it isn't "proper" to do so on a blog. Hi, my name is Christi and I am far from proper. I am a freebird. I do my best to be true to my spirit. I strive to be a better me today than I was yesterday, and to give to others what I wish to have. I believe we all hold the power within us to do and be whatever we want. We also hold the chains that keep us from all we want.

This is my daily journey about breaking my chains and living a life by design.

Today I got to try out a new program that is coming out. I am so excited about it. You can see some of my clips below and give it a shot yourself. Get free access HERE .

What makes me so excited is that it is the perfect place to start. Often people don't believe they can do it. Or maybe they don't know where to start. Or they join a gym and never see results because no one is guiding them. This will put an end to it. They can get connected through me and my accountability group, they can get a week long nutrition plan for them to START with, and have guided exercises for 30 minutes a day they can do from anywhere as long as there is wifi. No excuses now!

If you are ready to give it a shot MESSAGE ME or connect with me via the event page HERE.


On another note I want to chat you up about my issue with people not believing in themselves.
What is up with that?
I am seriously FLOORED with what I hear every day from people. It is like their spirit light is turned off and they are on automatic pilot. I want to SCREAM: "Wake up!". What is it that drives you? Why are you here? It is NOT to pay bills and die. It is NOT to spend the majority of your life showing up to work for someone else's dreams!!! Time and time again I watch people go to school to be a yoga teacher because it was their dream, only to find them a year later hating life because they spend all their time driving from studio to studio barely making ends meet... and their love for yoga starts to fizzle. I see the same in all professions.

Why not side hustle? Why not pursue your OWN company while you do the grunt work for someone else. It will never cease to amaze me that people will give 8 hours of their life to someone else but can't show up for their own dreams.

Look, I have a blueprint for how to succeed in online coaching. If you are in the health and fitness industry at all... I personally think it is a shame and a waste to not be profiting off your own brand on the side. I have a blueprint for how to do it. So if you want it, you best be contacting me TODAY!

My transformation can lead to your transformation


Since it is #ThrowbackThursday and I have a few hundred new followers I thought it was time to share with you all my starting point.
On the left is 4 years ago. I was 65 pounds heavier, looked a LOT older, was very unhappy, uncomfortable, and 6 weeks prior had a fe#Cancer tumors removed from my body. I was riddled with guilt and shame and surrounded by toxic "friends". I made a decision. I was worth fighting for. I told my family and everyone who would listen that I was never looking back. I would reclaim my health and happiness. So my daughter Taylor Ann Moufaddal forced me to stand there while she took my "before" picture. I refused at first but she said I would be so happy later when I looked back and could see how far I have come, and she was SO RIGHT!
I lost friends along the way, but they were not the kind of people that were going to help encourage and love me. I can pretty much guarantee they are all still right where they were or further down the path of destruction. I knew in order to change my life, I had to change both who I hung around, and my daily habits. So set forth and found a solution I could stick with. A permanent lifestyle change.
So here I am today on the right. Modeling for an active wear company. 65 pounds lighter, looking a LOT younger even though I am 4 years older, I am SO comfortable in my own skin, #CancerFree , and helping thousands overcome the same issues I used to have. The people that surround me lift me up with positivity, love and SUPPORT !
My entire life changed with ONE DECISION.
If you are ready to make that decision, I am here to help you every step of the way. I have a community of loving supportive people ready to embrace you. #DontWait all you have to do is decide and we can #StartTODAY

I have an amazing FREE group for you!

You CAN'T out run your fork!!!

Over the past 3 years I have had the privilege of helping over 1,000 people get healthy and change their life. The people who succeed EVERY TIME are the ones who are combating their health with nutrition in addition to our programs.

You CAN'T out run your fork!!!
You also CAN'T get the nutrition your body needs anymore without supplementing. So I wanted to make sure you were aware of the amazing products we have to support you in your journey.

Shakeology - NO it is NOT just a protein shake. If you are taking another protein shake you are missing out on 69 superfoods, leafy greens, probiotics, prebiotics, adaptagens, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

Performance line - The only line recommended by Iron Man. Created by the BEST Harvard Scientists/Nutritionists from Plant based sources whenever possible. Highest quality available on the market... and the results are OUTSTANDING. I SWEAR by this line. I NEVER miss out on it and would never take anything else. Safe for this Cancer Survivor!

Daily Sunshine - Finally a CERTIFIED organic, non-gmo, VEGAN daily supplement for KIDS!!! Get all their veggies, vitamins and minerals down in one yummy shake they beg for. Super awesome supplement for Vegans looking for post workout fuel too! Also recommended for senior citizens.

For those that don't know my story... I started out at the bottom. Sad, lonely, overweight and sick with cancer.

On the left:
Sad, broken, overweight, depressed, anxious, sick, so disappointed with myself.

Now... on the right:
Happy, strong, at goal weight, no anxiety, sleep great, and so so so PROUD of myself.

When you know better you do better!
I say it all the time because I was the poster child of what you should NOT be putting in your body before.

I still get super yummy drinks, snacks, meals, and desserts...
I just learned how to make them healthy.
So that is what I do. I teach people to rethink their food. We start with your faves and I teach you how to sub out the bad ingredients for good ones that taste the same, or in most cases even better!

80% of our results are in our NUTRITION! Not the programs!!! Once I figured out that I needed to work on fueling my body with the BEST... I got serious results by eating myself healthy.


These are me.
These are real.
These results came from Shakeology, The performance line, and our Supergreens.
Not just from sweating for 30 minutes.

These are my legs. Once I got HONEST with myself and realized I was in my way ... I needed to get the nutrients my body needed... the weight fell off, even though I was eating more than I ever have.

Health and fitness is a journey. It has highs and lows. Sometimes we fall down and need help getting back on track. I learned a long time ago that without accountability, I fall more often, and struggle a lot harder. Those who think they can do it alone tend to stop and start over and over because no one is there to help remind them of their why. We all need love and encouragement to stay the course.

It's like a fire. You can have a pile of logs burning hot,🔥🔥🔥 remove one of those flaming logs from the pile and it burns out while the others keep flaming, adding more and more logs to the fire makes it grow hotter and hotter...bigger and bigger.

Don't be the lone log. Get connected. I have an amazing group ready to help along with my one on one Coaching.
We start THIS Monday August 21st.
Only thing required to join is you do the meal plan too. 

Shakeology is on the meal plan.
The 
performance line is on the meal plan.
I have a shopping list for ya. I have the recipes for ya...
When is the last time you actually did a program. Doing a program is NOT just pushing play. A program includes the meal plan. Every program on BOD has a meal plan.

Let me help you finally get real results that last. You are the only one in your way!
I am here to help!!!
There is no charge to work with me. My services are free. I only require you be on ONE of our nutritional supplements because 100% of my clients get results.
Let's do this!

Call, write, or text.
