What is in season?

How many of you have bought fruits or vegetables and went to enjoy it and it didn’t taste good. Many times we see foods and think how great it would taste and it is not in season. When things are in season they taste amazing and we want that experience every time we have it.

Knowing what is in season is also great to save some money especially if you buy organic. You can do research on what is in season and there are tons and tons of charts about it and go greatly into detail. I just included a simple chart that has majority of the common fruits and vegetables that we all eat.

Enjoy shopping for in season items and finding recipes for them as well.

What Holds You Back

I just read an interesting article about how to eliminate things that hold us back from being successful.

When I read it it made me think of a saying- “If you do what you have always done, you get what you always got”! I know not the best grammar, but you get the point.

There are so many things that stop us from becoming successful. Success may be different for many of us. Some may say it is a healthy lifestyle or having time to spend with their family whenever they please or being able to buy what they want and not have to worry about what the price is. What ever success is to you most of the time it is YOU standing in your way.

I know it sounds silly right? Why would you not want yourself to be successful!

Well it isn’t that we don’t want ourselves to be successful it is just that we are comfortable doing things the way we always have. It is hard to change and more than that it is scary to change.

Here is the article to read more about it. http://m.entrepreneur.com/article/229504

Mini Pizza

How many of you love pizza but don’t want to make a whole pizza for yourself. Well here is a quick and HEALTHY way to make a personal pizza.

Here is what you will need:
– whole wheat English muffin (I use an organic one with flax seeds for added benefits)
– tomato sauce (I made mine using organic tomatoes and organic Italian spices)
– cheese (I use grass fed mozzarella cheese)
– toppings if your choice ( I had turkey only) feel free to add as many veggies as you would like

Toast the English muffin and add the tomato sauce.

Melt cheese. His can be done in the over at the broil setting. Watch to make sure you don’t burn it. You can also place in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Snack time

As you know snacking is key to losing weight, but it is also just good for general health.

Snacking helps stabilize blood sugar levels, keeps your metabolism running, and gives you energy all day long.

Some quick ones are fruits and veggies. A lot of people think bars such as power bars, granola bars, or quick snack bars. If you are going to do these think organic. They don’t have all the proceeded ingredients in them.

Some of my favorites are: bars, only organic, veggies, fruit, cottage cheese with pepper, and leftover smoothie!

Let me know some of you favorites!

Bananacakes

So do you have no idea what to make for breakfast or do you need more protein and hate eggs? Well I have the perfect solution for you. I call them bananacakes! They are simple to make and taste great. I love them, my son loves them, and even my husband loves them.

They are easy to make; you need two eggs and a banana. You mash the banana and whip the eggs together. You can add cinnamon which is what I do. Just make them how you would regular pancakes.

To add more to it purée fruit to place on top. Don’t mix it into the mix I tried it it doesn’t work.

This is mine with raspberry purée on top. I also added cinnamon into the mix! Yummy!

I’M BACK!!!

I am back!! I know that I have been away for a long time and I am excited to be back. I have been busy and now I have some time freed up to blog.

So what is new with me.

My Son- Can you believe that he is almost one?!? Yes it has gone by so fast. He is non-stop and runs circles around me, but I love every minute of it! He has taught me a lot as well as I have a ton of things to share with all of you.

My career- Well most of you know from my last post about becoming a health coach. Well I have finished all levels (the reason I have a bit more free time at night) and ready to share my knowledge. I now help families, pregnant women, and people over 50.

Well I have many things to share with all of you! New projects to new recipes I am excited to share with you all that have have done.

I hope you enjoy the upcoming posts!

Ceviche

Last night we had mexican food at my house. We have several healthier versions of what can be fattening mexican items.

Ceviche is one of my favorites and I really only love my mom recipe. Not sure if that is I know what she puts in it or if it I season it and don’t add a lot of salt ( I am not a fan of salt).

I have attached a link to get the recipe, but it does tell how much. Really you can just guess at what you want, but just use all the ingredients.

The link takes you to my website, so I would love if you would sign up for my newsletter that will have some recipes and tips on food. Also if you could share my website with those who you think could use it. We offer online coaching, so you don’t have to live in Colorado.

Baby Food???

So maybe you have seen a pattern here zucchini. I love them and could eat them all the time. Well I make all my sons food and use only organic foods. I saw this in his recipe book and made it. It turned out good and will make for my husband and I with some added spices.

In a pan slice the zucchini and place in the bottom. I used two medium size ones. Pour about a cup of tomato sauce. I just blended up some tomatoes and that was my sauce. Put some mozzarella cheese on top and then drizzle a little olive oil on top. Cover with some foil. Put in the oven at 450 for 25 minutes or until the zucchini is soft and cheese is melted.

I didn’t add any seasoning but when I make it again I will add basil, oregano, garlic, and things to make Italian.

Enjoy.
