Healthy Quick Lunch or Dinner

By | Nutrition, Uncategorized

I made you a quick video that shows one of my favorite meals, something that I crave almost everyday!  This is a great example of a complete meal.  Remember when you are putting together a meal, especially in the morning and early afternoon, it is important to include some good fats, complex carbs, and lean proteins.  This meal would be fine for dinner, assuming you just worked out, or are going to workout after dinner, but if this isn’t the case, it has far too many carbs for an evening meal.

This meal takes me 5 minutes to make:

1. Brown Rice

2. 1 can of tuna

3. Olive oil/vinegar dressing

4. Tomato

5. Avacado

What is your FAST and Healthy Lunch or Dinner?

Guacamole Recipe

By | Blog, Healthy Snacks, Nutrition, Uncategorized

This week’s food item is focusing on avacadoes.  Avacadoes have a high amount of healthy fats.  They are calorie dense so portion size is important when eating avacadoes.  Today, my mom has given you a great guacamole recipe.  I love guacamole, but I usually get in trouble with it, because I eat so many chips with it… yes chips are my biggest food weakness!  Avacadoes are great to put on sandwhiches, salads, and on chicken (ok, I haven’t tried that last one, but felt it necessary to come up with 3 things that avacadoes go good with besides the obvious chips!)

Last week I said I’d maybe send some of Nancy’s Moraccan vegetable stew home with Angela for Dustin….well, I got to bring Ang back to campus on Monday and stay a couple of days, aaannnd even had the privilege of meeting some of you from the oh-so-famous “Bootcamp 5:45 AM” :)!!  Then Ang and I worked out with the next bootcamp, first with Dustin, then Abby took over (someone told me they liked Dustin, but they REALLY liked Abby-said she was even harder than Dustin!).  Okay you guys, these arm and leg muscles ARE sore, and as you all noticed, I had to UNload the wt. bar :(!!
