Healthy Superbowl recipes that curb the cravings but keep you on track!

So yeah. The big day is right around the corner. You know... the one where endless temptations are in front of you for hours while the TV breaks to commercial telling you WHY those things are so yummy. You have no other options... I mean veggies and hummus only go so far... so you cave. You justify that it is a special occasion and you throw your promise you made to yourself (to stay on track) out the window. I mean... there is always next Monday.
That mindset is just gonna keep you right where you are, and you said you want CHANGE! 

I have got ya covered. The trick is to have yummy treats on hand that are HEALTHY!
So here is a round-up of things I keep on hand that keep me and my goals going strong!

Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity

What is opportunity worth to you?

As I am closing up the final days of the first month in 2017, I am overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement watching the new members of team nourish take off, get their first big paychecks, advancing in rank, getting featured on various fitness apparel and gears sites!!! NOTHING makes me happier than watching others thrive in this business using the tools I have taught them. 

Sometimes I think back to all the people I talked to who WANTED this opportunity, but let fear get the better of them, so they let it pass them by. I think about what their bank accounts and workout wardrobe would look like now. What friendships they have missed out on. I think of their missing faces at summit when we are all together celebrating. I think about them being stuck at that job they told me they wanted out of. A WHOLE YEAR just GONE and they are still stuck in the same situation. All because of fear or lack of knowledge.

What REALLY saddens me most are the ones that are doing the job already, for nothing, getting nothing in return and missing out on reaching and HELPING thousands more with their posts because they are afraid to believe in their power. 

So the text on this image rings SO true to me.... how missed opportunity is so expensive. I do this to help save others from the ugly path of cancer that I went down. I tried all gimmicks before and then cancer taught me there are no shortcuts. You have to eat right, show up and workout, and also work on your mindset to make a shift happen in your life. 

So to all I have spoken to in the past. To all who have watched my posts about joining #TeamNourishbut you just ignored that tug. NOW is the time to TAKE ACTION and kick fear to the curb and START. Trust that my team and I have you. We will walk or run with you. love you, encourage you, inspire you, challenge you, and work WITH you to get you to all your hopes and dreams. 

I am looking for people that want their job to have purpose. Your earnings are a direct reflection of how many people YOU HELP. 

Are you finally ready to stop with the excuses? 
5 spots left and we start Feb 6th.

21 day organic plant based detox to get you alkaline

Rise and Shine! 
This is my #ThrowbackThursday to last year when I did my 21 day plant based detox. The food was AMAZING! Excited to lead several ladies through this next month! 

I have a couple spots left. If you ever wanted to truly know what foods you are allergic to, what makes you bloat, what causes the headaches, rashes, acne, fatigue, emotions, infertility, cramps etc..This is the process that will tell all. 

We slowly eliminate foods to get you to an alkaline state ( cancer can't live in this state!) Then we slowly add foods back so you can see, feel and KNOW what to avoid. Honestly everyone needs to do this at least once because KNOWLEDGE is key to a happy healthy life. 

Let me know if you want one of the last 2 spots left. We start after Valentine's day. Hit me up ASAP I expect these spots to go fast.

Healthy Protein Coconut Cranberry muffins

I am doing super great on my goals. My daughter gets married in a little over 2 weeks and I want to make sure I look and feel good for the event. But man I do love carbs. Carbs don't love me. I eat healthy carbs like fruit and beans, but grain and I have to break up anytime I am trying to tone up. 

I got some gorgeous cranberries in my CSA Organic box, so I decided to use them in a healthy muffin I could reach for when a carb craving comes along. 

Cranberries are misunderstood. People overlook them and reach for traditional berries, when the truth is, they are just as good! I love the tangy tartness it brings to these muffins that are low carb high protein and gluten-free. Enjoy my healthy friends. Nothing better than muffins! 

Healthy Gluten-Free Protein Coconut Cranberry muffins
Makes 12 Muffins

4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
6 eggs
4 tablespoons whole coconut milk, canned
60 drops liquid stevia drops or sweet drops (vanilla creme is the best) You can insert maple syrup, orange juice, applesauce or any other sweetener alternative here.
1/2 teaspoon pink himalyan sea salt
1/2 cup sifted coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2 cups cranberries, rinsed and chopped.
1/4 cup coconut sugar, or stevia drops, or maple syrup, or orange juice

In large bowl, mix eggs, butter, coconut milk, stevia and salt. 
In smaller bowl, combine sifted coconut flour and baking powder. 
Add dry mix into batter, blending thoroughly until there are no lumps. 
Pour batter into greased muffin tins.
Mix cranberries and sweetener of choice together in a sauce pan and stir over low heat until bubbly. place a TBSP of the cranberry in the middle of each muffin batter in filling dividing into 12 muffins and bake at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutes. Enjoy!

My favorite things January 2017 addition

One of the wonderful things about my job, is getting to work with amazing companies. I have been blessed to get to try out new amazing products that sponsors send me for the work I do on my challenges. The products I love the most, I share with you here. In my favorite things posts monthly. Here is who I am raving about now.

Gaia Collective Moonbox

Subscription boxes are all the rage and I understand why. There is something about getting a package in the mail each month that has a surprise in there for you. I am totally in LOVE with this moonbox by Gaia Collective. It is a holistic crystal and full moon subscription box that arrives at your doorstep before each full moon!

In each box you get 3 Crystals, and essential oil blend, tea blend, featured item, moon oracle card, guided meditation, guided full moon ritual, ritual supplies, and a wearable item.
I found this box to be an amazing experience. I highly recommend it!!! Get yours HERE


Leggings of the month club

On the subscription box note... I also am a HUGE fan of the Leggings of the month club. With so many new legging companies coming out that are sub par, I think it is extra important to ASK around before buying. I do consider myself an expert when it comes to leggings and these are SO WELL MADE. Here I am unboxing January. 

I have worn these leggings for working out, yoga, meditation, hiking and lounge wear. They get an A+++ from me.  Get your subscription HERE


Bunnies and Zen Yoga Towels

Colorful and unique Yoga accessories through the use of bold prints and quirky details. Each style encompasses a Zen message, which serves as a reminder for us to stay focused, positive and grounded through life’s ups and downs.

The Woven Yogi Knits

Erika is very talented with her knits! This hat is my absolute favorite! She makes so many cute styles of beanies including the very popular ponytail beanie. Contact Erica HERE to get your handmade hat from her.

Anjali makes a frequent appearance in my favorite things. The more comfortable you are in your Yoga pants, the longer you’ll be motivated to workout and practice.

New Sinful Snack that is actually quite healthy

My oh my... I think I hit the mother load. Blogging is a fun thing, especially when you get to try new HEALTHY treats that taste like a decadent truffle. I was given a pack of these new ProBurst Bites from enjoy life foods to try. They simply asked I share my opinion in return. 
Healthy chocolate?
I'm in!

Especially since it was Enjoy Life Foods that was asking. They have a solid reputation in my book. Non-Gmo is SO important to me, and they are non-gmo! I am picky. So I did my research. These bad boys are packed with up to 7 grams of plant-based protein per serving!!! These heavenly chocolate, truffle-like bites are perfect for an allergy-friendly decadent snack. Enjoy life foods has earned mad respect from me because they are always FREE from all major food allergens:

Tree Nut

I REALLY enjoyed these and I WILL be purchasing more from my local market. While I liked them all, my favorite 2 were the sunbutter, and the cinnamon spice. Both were to die for. 

My family enjoyed these for our friday family game night. Instead of crappy food, we got some nutrition in us while feeling like we were cheating. So it was a win. EVERYONE loved them. Thumbs up!!!

Moist Baked Mustard Salmon with Asparagus

Hey hey hey! I am back at it! What a difference a new kitchen makes!
We are slowly getting settled in our new home and I am IN LOVE! It is the most favorite home I have ever had. Just the right size for me. My favorite feature is my kitchen/desk space. I have room to create again. It feels amazing. Then afterwards, I can walk into my yoga room to stretch out and get grounded.  Life is pretty amazing right now.

With the holidays, the year end push my team and I do for elite (we made it yay!), the move, and welcoming a new son-in-law... I got behind on my clean eating. So I did what any coach would do and I cleansed that shit out. I do a 3 day cleanse to get my body back in a good alkaline state and then I maintain that with clean eating and Superfoods with an extra boost of Powergreens to boost the oxygen in my blood. Cancer can't live in blood that is in that state, so that is how I stay cancer free. If you have any questions about this, I have tried everything and have easy affordable solutions for you. Hit me up and I can help ya! 

So now it is back to clean eating. My husband found some amazing wild caught Salmon. I wanted a moist buttery finish while filling my body with those luscious omega 3's. So I chose to do a low bake. 

The Salmon and mustard sauce go SO well with Asparagus, so I combined the recipe. The more greens the better! 

The Moistest Baked Mustard Salmon with Asparagus

1 bunch thin asparagus (about 1 pound), trimmed 
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided 
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided 
4 (6-ounce) skin-on salmon fillets 
8 teaspoons country-style or whole-grain Dijon mustard 

Preheat oven to 275°F. 
Line your broiler pan with parchment paper. 
Toss asparagus with 1 Tbsp. oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper on prepared sheet, then arrange in a single layer on the bottom layer of the broiler pan. Bake asparagus 5 minutes. 
Meanwhile, spread each salmon fillet with 2 tsp. mustard. Sprinkle fillets with 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper total. 
Prepare the top layer of your broiler pan with parchment paper. 
After asparagus has baked for 5 minutes, remove broiler pan from oven. Place prepared salmon fillets skin side down on top sheet of broiler pan. Put top sheet on bottom sheet of broilder pan and return to oven and bake until salmon is firm but still pink in the center and asparagus is tender, 14–16 minutes more for medium rare salmon. Divide salmon and asparagus among four plates. I served with basmati/quinoa 50/50 blend for added protein instead of just straight carbs.

Team nourish 2x Elite

So it has been a whirlwind couple of days. Last week my team and I clinched our huge hairy scary goal. To finish the year elite. We did it! Team Nourish is once again in the top 1% of the entire company. I LOVE my team!!! I LOVE seeing the thousands of lives we collectively changed this year.
Then today I was given my new elite picture. What do you think? 
I can't decide if I like it or not, because I am my biggest critic, I have a hunch a lot of sisters out there feel the same as I do. I am working on loving every flaw. It is a journey.

Then... today I also was able to register for my all expense paid trip to Rivera Maya Hard Rock.
Is this real life? 
Can someone please pinch me?

I still am not sure how I got so blessed. But I am ready to bless some others that would like these opportunities. Points start accumulating for this trip NOW ... in January. I have a training all set and ready to show the exact steps to success and my team and I work with you to help you get there! Don't's go time!!!
