Count colories not calories

I have been getting a lot of messages asking me what the color container codes mean in the recipes I post. My programs have a system that teaches you to eat REAL food (not starve yourself), focusing on portion control. With our formula, it tells you how many color coded containers you get per day depending on your height and weight and goals. Some want to put weight on, some want to take weight off. This is NOT about being skinny! It is about being healthy. I provide you with, 30 minute daily guided at home workouts, the container system, and all the love and support you could want. For weightloss goals...most of my clients average loss of 15 lbs in 21 days.
This is the lifestyle change I adopted 14 months ago... and I am kinda thinkin' it works. The new year is coming and I would love to help you make this new year your best year. #WhyNotYou  its your turn. 

Here is an example of a clean color coded recipe!

A yummy clean grilled cheese
Container codes: to 2 yellow and 1 blue OR orange.

2 slices sprouted whole-grain bread 
1 tsp. Dijon mustard 
1 oz roasted red bell pepper strips 
1 slice medium tomato 
¼ cup fresh arugula 
¼ cup shredded smoked gouda cheese (1 oz) 
½ tsp. olive oil

New year programs that don't break the bank

Today I have an amazing statistic to share with you!
According to Gym Statistics "45 million Americans will turn to a gym membership at the new year and 85% of them will ONLY GO 6  times and then quit. " Not only that, they will continue to pay all year for the membership due to contracts and cancellation fees. Stop the madness!

I would love to work with you. My programs have an 82% success rate. Why? Daily motivation, daily support, nutrition plans, recipes, shopping lists, friends, accountabilty and PRIZES. It is like going to a gym with 20 of your best friends, but the gym is the comfort of your home. Want to stop? There are no ongoing fees. It is simple. You get an online personal trainer/yoga teacher (me) that checks in with you, and a ton of new friends from our online group. (These people have become like family to me). 

I have numerous programs, for every training style. We have cross training, Lifting, cardio, dance, nutrition, yoga, boot camp and even gentle detox programs that require NO EXERCISE. 

If you want what you have always got, then by all means keep doing what you are doing. If you are ready to make a change at the new year, then hit me up. I am excited to work and train hard right along side you. Let's make 2016 your best year ever! 
I hope to help you reach your goals in the upcoming year! Look forward to hearing from you! ‪

9 two 5 fit yoga wear

Have you all heard of the new brand 9 Two 5 for active women on the go? It is an awesome assemblage of fitness clothing on a mission to go from gym to street in a tasteful, stylish, and sophisticated manner—all day, every day.

I received this amazing outfit in the mail and was super stoked to be able to wear it on my Mom's beautiful back deck in Mexico over the Thanksgiving holiday. Can't wait to show you the back of the white hoodie at a later date. 

Very high quality stuff. I went to see Mocking Jay part two, then went to a street market in rosarito mexico, do a yoga practice all without having to change. Love the thought behind this clothing line. Go check them out!

Clean Healthy Fat Hollandaise

So you are asking how is this clean? Cashews. That is my answer. Where most hollandaise recipes contain a cube or two or three of butter, this recipe contains none. Instead, it contains cashews. That replacement alone makes it worth it. So for that purpose, this sauce is not Vegan. If you would like it to be Vegan, you can sub 1/4 cup avocado for the egg yolk and boom... vegan. I just wanted my eggs today. I am not afraid of egg yolk, because I eat so clean (no processed foods... that's ezekiel bread under there!) and my cholesterol can't get any lower. I love the clean healthy fat and protein of an egg yolk. Anything man didn't mess with I love. And before I get hate mail, I get my eggs from a reliable source and they are free range and non-gmo vegetable fed, good ole brown eggs. While I make numerous Vegan recipes, I am not Vegan. I love my eggs. 

I also love hollandaise, and it is something I always eat when I am splurging. So this time when I started my Hot for the Holiday's accountability group, I was prepared. Those of us in fitness know we need healthy fat to get to our goals. Now I have a yummy sauce to put on my breakfast, dip my veggies in, pour over my asparagus... and it is basically just nuts with a little avocado oil, a very healthy fat! 
You're welcome.

Clean Healthy Fat Hollandaise

1 cup raw uncooked cashews (Soaked overnight, drained, but save water)
1/4 cup avocado oil
1/4 cup of the cashew water that is left from soaking
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp tumeric
1 tsp ground mustard seed
Juice of one lemon 
1 Tbsp Tapatio or Cholula hot sauce
1 tsp salt 
1/4 tsp pepper

Cashews MUST be soaked overnight for this sauce to work. 
Add your water and avocado oil together and heat to just under boiling. You can do this on the stove or the microwave, whatever suits you. 

In the meantime add the soaked, drained, cashews, 2 egg yolks, tumeric, mustard, lemon juice, hot sauce, salt and pepper to a blender and push blend. 

While it is blending, slowly drizzle the water/oil mixture into the blender, this will coagulate the egg yolks while blending the cashews. you may have to run a few cycles of blending and scraping down the sides, until it forms a cream consistency. 

Serve immediately. Store in an airtight container and gently bring back to warmth to serve.
Now go make a killer eggs benedict.

Clean Eating Avocado Egg Salad Wraps

I love a good deviled egg. I thought I would not get to really enjoy those again, until now. I use avocado's in place of the mayo, combined with a little vinegar, salt, and pepper... it tastes the same. Works for mayo on and in everything. Only drawback is the color. But hey, I now can truly say I love me some green eggs... I'll still pass on the ham. 

This is the first day back off my cleanse. I lost 5.5lbs in 3 days and my husband lost 3.7lbs. I am feeling strong and good and am keeping this rolling with my exercise program and eating clean. I have a group called Hot for the Holidays going that helps me stay accountable. It is the best thing ever. If you ever want to join, all you have to do is ask. :)

So today I am making sure I eat right. So for lunch I made avocado egg salad lettuce wraps. I didn't take the time to make them look all cute. It was just for us, but dang it, it was so good and now you get a yuck picture. Sorry, I serve the food I share with you. This was SO SO SO SO good!!! If you are not watching your processed foods like I am, then feel free to enjoy on bread or in a wrap. It is so good. Can use the same ingredients to make killer deviled eggs too.

Clean Eating Avocado Egg Salad Wraps

8 eggs, hard boiled
2 medium ripe avocados, peeled and large seeds removed
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
Pink himalayan sea salt to taste
2 Tbsp yellow mustard
Romaine Lettuce Leaves

Peel and dice hard boiled eggs. Combine in a big bowl with the flesh of your avocados. Add vinegar, salt, and mustard. Stir. 

Place 1/2 cup of the mix on a leaf and fold. 
Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Tangy Tastebuds Salad

Sorry for the horrible shot of this Salad. It really does not do it justice. This is quite simply the best salad I have had in a very long time. Unfortunately where I live it is getting dark really early and I actually eat the food ... hence the dark blurry photo. You will just have to trust me. 

On the last day of my cleanse. Feeling amazing. Eating stuff like this makes me not feel like I am cleansing at all. Love that we get to eat whole foods and real GOOD fats like Avocado. It is all about healing your body, not starving it. If you are interested in taking this cleanse, please email me and I will get you the details. 

Here is the recipe for this tangy delicious salad. Enjoy! 

Tangy Tastebuds Salad
1 Cucumber

2 Honeycrisp Apples
1 Organic Beefsteak Tomato
1 Avocado
1 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt, 
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
Juice of one lime
1/4 cup cilantro diced *optional

Peel, core, and cube Cucumber, Apples, Tomato, and Avocado. You want them to all be cut a similar size. This makes them dance on your tastebuds. Trust me, don't skip making them cubes. Place all prepared produce in a large bowl. Top with salt, vinegar and lime juice. Top with Cilantro if desired. Stir together and serve. 

Store in an closed container in the fridge.

Clean Vegan Thai Ramen

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. 

My choice of living consists of this: 
21 days of clean eating. It includes yummy desserts and foods I love. Then I go off clean eating for 4 days. I plan those days as my ladies nights, date nights, etc... I have cocktails and eat pretty much what I want, within reason. Then I start a 3 day cleanse to get out all the crap I put in the last 4 days. Then I start over. I love this lifestyle. I have a date that I know I will get to splurge and have fun, and I have a safe way to remove the sugars from my body. Being a Cancer survivor I am SO BLESSED to have found this product that allows me a little fun! 

My husband only cleanses about twice a year, and he struggles. He is a big eater and because of that, the cleanse is needed from time to time. So this time I was prepared with some of his favorite flavors. We are halfway done and he is feeling great. We had this for dinner last night and he at it also for lunch. It contains the veggies needed and your healthy fat. Totally cleanse safe and clean eating. We loved it and I would eat it on or off the cleanse any day of the week!

If you are interested in trying out this 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. 

The secret is in the red curry paste. 
Ingredients in it are: Red Chili, GarlicLemongrassGalangal (Thai Ginger), Salt, Onion, Kaffir Lime, Coriander, and Pepper.
 It is only 20 calories per serving and 100% cleanse safe! I do sometimes make my own, but since the kids have all moved out, this is SO much easier.

Thai Ramen
Serves 4

1 4oz jar thai kitchen red curry paste
1 13.66 ounce can of thai kitchen organic coconut milk
2 cups vegetable broth
2 Zucchini 
1 Tsp Pink Himalayan Sea Salt

Mixed veggies of choice, I used:
1 onion (sliced)
2 carrots (sliced)
10 mushrooms (sliced)
2 green peppers

Combine one 4 ounce jar of Thai Kitchen red curry paste with one can of thai kitchen organic coconut milk and 2 cups of vegetable broth and bring to a boil.

While bringing to a boil use your zoodle maker to make noodles out of your zucchini. These are very affordable tools you use to make noodles and I recommend every kitchen has one! This is what makes your clean yummy cleanse safe noodles! I peel my zucchini first, but you don't have to. 

Once your broth is at a boil, add your salt and chopped veggies (NOT THE ZOODLES!)
Bring back to a boil and stir constantly cooking for 5 minutes. 
Add in your zoodles for 30 seconds (just enough to heat the noodles) then divide between 4 bowls and serve immediately!!!

Salt and pepper to taste

-December 3rd We resume another #cleaneating program but this time it will be for 21 days. Boom.... It is Christmas and you are

Live your best life

you living the life you love? Or are you stuck living the the same day over and over? A year ago I took a chance. 
#Why ...
I was ready to commit to a healthier life.
#WhyNot  ...
 If I was going to commit to it, why not help others do the same? 

Little did I know this chance would lead to me finding some of the best friendships I could hope for, with amazing souls that love and accept me for who I am, freedom to live my #LifeByDesign  and hop on a plane, train, or automobile to check things off my #BucketList and to go love on my team mates that live on the opposite side of the U.S. from me. I have seen New Hampshire, Boston, Maine, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia these past two weeks. 

This "job" does not require travel. It allows you to live your life by YOUR design because it can be done anywhere in the U.S. and Canada. So while I was having the time of my life I was still collecting my paychecks. So that leads me to:
What do you want to do with this precious gift of life? Why waste it in a cubicle or a dead end job? Maybe you want to be at home more with your babies? Maybe you want to see the world? Maybe you want more time with your love? Maybe you want to have more time at home? Maybe you want to buy a home? This #opportunity is open to anyone that is willing to help others and lead by example. 
It does not matter if you are overweight, skinny, or in between. We come in all sizes. You just have to be ready to commit to a healthier life, and help others do the same through ONLINE #Accountabilitywhich frees you up to go, do, be, anything you wish. 
What are you waiting for? What is holding you back from living the best life. #ItsYourTurn  if you are ready, email me at momwhatsfordinner@yahoo.com My team is waiting with open arms.

Get up and move

Do you feel like you need a change? 
Maybe you are scared? Don't know where to start? Does it feel like a mountain is in front of you? You are not meant to do it alone. It is a journey that is meant to be taken together. With love, support, encouragement, and one step at a time, I can get you to your goals. Best part is, I work right along side you, doing the same workouts, the same meal plans. This is MY LIFE and it is worth living. Yours is too. Email me when you are ready. momwhatsfordinner@yahoo.com
