  • Healthy Recipe For Healthy Breaded Turkey Cutlets

    Last year I went to Italy with my hubby, it was the vacation of a lifetime.  For me it was all about the FOOD.  Being that I am a foodie, I couldn't help but think of food every moment we were there.  We ate so much and I totally enjoyed taking pictures of everything we ate.  It was the best. 

    Anyhow, I came back and tried to recreate some of the yummy food we ate there but make them healthy.  Todays recipe is one of those.  Everywhere we went in Tuscany had some sort of chicken, veal or meat...... breaded and with arugula, tomatoes and balsamic glaze.  It was spectacular.

    I am excited to let you know that there is a great product that you can use to create a crust or breading.  Its almond meal and it is absolutely fabulous!

    This is great for breading and baking.  You have to try it.  And all it is, is ground almonds, which are so good for you.  Check out why... And by the way, check out My recipe for Thai Turkey Meaballs, with toasted sliced almonds on top.  Delicious and healthy recipe that uses almonds.  Its on My Pinterest Board, make sure you are following it.

    Health Benefits Of Almonds

    • Great for the skin.
    • High in Folic Acid, which helps reduce birth defects during pregnancy.
    • Helps reduce risk of heart disease.
    • Lowers cholesterol.
    • Its potassium content helps regulate blood pressure.
    • They are good fat and help you feel full.

    This turkey recipe would be delicious with my Lemony Lentil-Rice Salad with Toasted Walnuts from My Eat To Be Fit Healthy Recipes Book.  That is like one of my favorite side dishes ever.  Its divine!

    Almond Breaded Turkey Cutlets


    1 lb thin turkey cutlets (or you can use chicken)

    1/4 cup Dijon mustard

    1/2 cup or more almond meal

    1 tbsp italian seasoning

    s&p to taste

    3 cups arugula

    balsamic glaze to taste


    Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.  Meanwhile, coat the turkey with the mustard.  In a shallow bowl, mix the almond meal, seasoning and salt and pepper.  Mix well and dredge the cutlets on both sides in the mixture.  Sear in a skillet until golden, and transfer to a lined baking sheet.  Bake for 5 minutes or until done.  To serve, put on a plate, put some arugula on top and drizzle with balsamic glaze.

  • Healthy Recipe For "Greens" Fried Rice

    Today I was talking to one of my awesome clients about eating Chinese food. Yuk!

    I mean not because it tastes bad but because they cook with so much salt and oil that you wake up the next day looking like a balloon and then you have a bad day.

    This doesn't mean you can't have Chinese Food, but instead of eating out, eat it in!

    Here is how!  I actually love Chinese, Thai and Japanese food so I am always trying to come up with healthy ways to make them.

    I love that I can pretty much eat whatever I want or crave if I make it at home and I can control the quality of the ingredients and then enjoy it GUILT-FREE.

    Controlling the quality of food you eat and the kinds of foods you eat can make a huge impact on  your WEIGHT LOSS.  

    After almost 18 years in the fitness and health industry, I have found that most people don't have so much of a problem with the quantity of food.  On the contrary, most people are eating way too little calories (calorie deprivation) in an attempt to "DIET".  

    So then, why aren't people losing more weight?

    The answer is pretty much always the same.  They are eating too little, but the wrong foods.  

    There are some foods that are just DETRIMENTAL to your weight loss, muscle gain and results.  

    The digestive track is one of the biggest and most important processes of the body.  And if digestion is off, it can completely prevent you from LOSING WEIGHT and BURNING FAT.  

    So how do you prevent yourself from having your digestion be off?

    Easy........ Don't eat foods that are INFLAMMATORY.  

    Too much inflammation in the digestive system doesn't allow you to burn fat and lose weight.  That means that even if you are eating only 500 calories a day and exercising 7 days a week but you are consuming some of these "inflammatory" foods, its possible that you don't lose ONE OUNCE of fat.

    Pretty crazy huh?

    I know, its insane, but true.

    And when I finally understood this, and took out of my diet and my clients diets all those foods that cause inflammation, it was soooooo much easier to lose weight.

    So before I give you this awesome recipe, I want to make sure that you take these INFLAMMATORY FOODS out of you diet.  There are 5 foods you should take out of your diet that will make a huge difference.

    Seriously, when I take these foods out of my clients diets, its like the drop 10 lbs in like a week or two.  They totally de-bloat.  It's crazy.

    What I'm going to do for you is give you a list of the foods in a nice PDF so that you can print it and keep it in your kitchen as a reminder.  I also went ahead and gave you 5 foods that you MUST include in  your diet if you wan tot maximize your results.  I figured, if I'm giving you what you CAN'T eat, I better give you what you CAN eat.  It's all right here in this PDF for you.  

    If you take these out of your diet, I promise, you will definitely see a change.  I did! I actually saw a huge change in my body, and I was already pretty lean before that.

    I finally saw ABS the way I never saw them before.  But I also started doing some amazing ABS EXERCISES.  So I want to show you what those exercises are.  So I made like a 30 seconds video of those exercises for you.  You can get all of this, the PDF and the short video here.

    Once you go to the link to get access to all of this (which by the way is totally free), you will also receive a few emails from me for a few days.  Make sure you open and read them.  I have taken a lot of time to give you plenty of tips and tricks and strategies to help you get rid of these foods and make better options.  There's a ton of golden nuggets in those emails that will really help you lose weight and get more toned.  

    Ok, now I am so excited about this recipe because it has a ton of green veggies in it which is great.

    This was also super easy to make because I just used a bunch of left over veggies I had and actually used left over jasmine rice I had prepared the day before.  So this dish took me about 10 minutes to make. YEAH!  

    All you have to do is add chicken, tofu, turkey or steak to this and you have one delicious meal.  As you can see in the picture below, I served this up with some delicious Asian Turkey Meatballs and it was a delicious meal.  So good, even my 2 year old devoured a whole bowl full of it.

    I really hope you are trying all these recipes.  It can really help you get better results by being able to stick to your healthy eating plan longer and being more consistent.  All these meals can help you speed metabolism and burn more fat.  And people are loving them.  Check out what this woman said.... Love that you guys are posting these pictures and comments on My Facebook Page.  Please continue to do so and make sure you have LIKED the page so that you can have all these recipes available to you.



    I had roasted some asparagus the day before and I had a ton left over so I used them for this Greens Fried Rice.  Did you know that asparagus are really good for you?

    Here are a few benefits.

    Health Benefits of Asparagus:

    • Good source of folate, fiber and Vitamins A, C, E, and K
    • Great source of Glutatione which is a detoxifying compound that helps break down carcinogens and free radicals, this is why they say asparagus is so good to help Cancer and other diseases.
    • Packed with antioxidants and famous for its ability to neutralize cell damaging free radicals, it helps the aging process...woohooo

    This should be reason enough to make this.  Aside from that it is so tasty.

    This could be really yummy with this super easy and tasty CHICKEN RECIPE or with this insanely good THAI TURKEY MEATBALLS, my mouth is watering jus thinking of them.  

    Make sure to find me on YouTube, there's tons of great HEALTHY RECIPES there as well as WORKOUT VIDEOS, EXERCISES and so much really great stuff that can help you.

    Healthy Recipe For Greens Fried Rice


    2 cups of jasmine or brown rice (I used left overs)

    1 1/2 cups chopped asparagus, grilled, roasted, steamed (I used left overs)

    1 cup shelled edamame

    1/2 cup scallions

    3 egg whites, scrambled

    1 tbsp black sesame seeds

    2-3 tbsp balsamic vinegar


    Cook the rice as directed.  Unless you have left overs.  In a wok or deep skillet with a little stock, mix in all the vegetables and cook for a few minutes.  Add in the cooked rice, egg whites, scallions, sesame seeds and vinegar and fold in well.

    You are going to love this recipe.  I pretty much make it all the time because its a good way to get my kids to eat more veggies and there's extra protein in the rice because of the egg whites.  It's just a win-win.

    I love that my kids love to eat healthy.  I really credit that to my BeFit Moms Meal Plans.  I have been following them myself with my family since my son was born and it has been amazing.  It's so great to always have a plan of what to eat.  To always have my shopping lists ready, I don't even have to think about it, worry about it, nor take the time to make them every week.  

    It saves me time, and actually money too because I really just stick to the list.  

    In turn, my kids and hubby eat super healthy.  I cook every day and it only takes about 30 minutes and I have been able to get leaner than ever.  All my BeFit Moms say the same thing too.

    Its so great to hear that the hubby's and kiddos like the meals too.  It feels so much better to know your family is getting healthier too. Not just you eating your "diet food" and then feeding them the "crap".

    If you want to try them out, I think you will fall in love like I did and like all my BeFit Moms do.  


    Here is the link to try them:  BeFit Moms Meal Plan

  • A Yummy Healthy Chicken Recipe

    I don't understand why people go to the grocery store 3 and 4 times a week.  Truthfully, I don't have time for that.  I also don't have the patience to think about what to cook every night or have to think of a healthy option of something to pick up.  Ugh......  You mean get in my car and go out to pick up food, yuk!

    That is why I make a meal plan for the whole week.  Yes, I have been telling you to do this for years, and I do so because it makes a huge difference.  It will save you TIME (which we could all use), and FRUSTRATION.  Its also really fun to be able to pick out what you want to eat every single day.

    I love that I only have to go to the grocery store once a week.  I also love that I can eat a variety of foods all week.  I always make sure that in my week I have some chicken, fish, turkey, and lots of veggies, beans and grains.  But ohhhhh, the CHICKEN BLUES!  So many people get TIRED of eating chicken.  Not ME!  But that's because I enjoy it all different ways.  One of my FAVORITES is My Raspberry Balsamic Chicken from My Eat To Be Fit Healthy Recipe Book.  Its DIVINE!

    I get tons of emails and comments on My Facebook Page with people asking for more heatlhy chicken recipes.  Trust me, I know how boring it can get to eat eat grilled chicken all the time.  That is why I am giving you this delicious, easy and healthy chicken recipe.  You are going to love it.

    • 1 Stevia
    • 1/3 cup Cilantro, chopped
    • 1/2 cup coconut milk

    Place all ingredients in a zip lock bag except the cilantro.  Let sit in the refirgerator for at least an hour.  Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees take the chicken out of the bag (reserve marinade) and bake the chicken for 20 minutes or until done.  Five mintues before the chicken is done, place the reserved marinade in a small saucepan and boil.  To serve, place the chicken on a dish, pour the marinade over it and sprinkle with fresh cilantro.

    This is a great change up to plain and boring ol' grilled chicken. So I hope you try it.

    So this is a huge thing for me that I am posting a SALAD RECIPE.  And the only reason I am doing so is because I got the inspiration from this on a website I found and I played around with it because I wanted to finally try MUNG BEAN SPROUTS.  And the outcome was SURPRISINGLY DELICIOUS.  So I have to share it.  If this sounds just as YUMMY to you as to me, then go ahead and SHARE it.  I share all my healthy recipes and workout on My Facebook Page so that I can help women just like you get FIT, FABULOUS and enjoy being HEALTHY.  So help me share the goods.

  • Summery Crunchy Cucumber Salad

    I don't know about you but in the hot summer months, I get in the mood for summery, cold, crunchy and refreshing healthy meals.  So I try not to roast so much and try to make cold and yummy salads like the one I have for you today.   Actually one of my favorite cold salads is my Fresh Garbanzo Salad from my Eat To Be Fit Healthy Recipes Book.  I even make it to entertain and people love it.  Its fresh, a little sweet, a little smoky and its got greens, reds, and its SIMPLY (cuz its so easy to make) DIVINE.  

    I am so excited that My Organic Corner now is selling my Eat To Be Fit Healthy Recipes Book.  I have been getting such great feedback about it and all the recipes people are making from it.  Keep on posting your feedback, I love it.

    The inspiration came from a recipe that I found online from a blogger called Kelsies Kitchen.  She made such a big fuss about this recipe on her blog that I had to try it.  So of course as you know my passion is making over recipes, that is what I did.  And man oh man is it a phenomenal salad.  

    I actually let it sit in the fridge for over 5 days and believe it or not, it was still good, and even still crunchy.  

    FYI, here are some Cucumber Health Benefits:

    • They are relatively high in fiber.
    • One small cup provides a small dose of nearly all essential vitamins and nutrients.
    • One serving of cucumbers will give you vitamins A, C, K, B6, folate and thiamin. Aside from salt, all minerals are present and accounted for in one cup of cucumbers, including; calcium, iron, manganese, selenium, zinc and potassium.
    • Their high water content content helps the body get rid of toxins.
    • The high amount of Vitamin K found in 1 cup of cucumbers helps build bone strength and decrease the risk of osteoporosis and arthritis.
    • They are extremely low in calories and 0 g of fat or sodium.  Only 16 calories in 1 cup.

    Part of being healthy and fit is incorporating all types of foods in your diet.  So stop eating the same old boring foods and start experimenting with new foods and ingredients.  Try going to your local farmers markets and trying what is in season.

    Try this healthy recipe made with cucumbers, and play around with it. Just make sure to come back to my blog or My Facebook Page and SHARE with us your new revamped recipe.  I love to hear your ideas.

    Even in the summer months here in South Florida, sometimes its gloomy and rainy and all I feel like is COMFORT.  What I really feel like doing is getting under the covers with a good cup of coffee and some chocolate chip cookies and sleep all day. LOL

    But since I can't and shouldn't do any of those, I settle for a good ol' bowl of comfort (in a healthy way).

    How about this for comfort?

    There is nothing more comforting than a good bowl of soup or stew, so when I am feeling this way I make a delicious yet healthy meal like the one I am going to give you today.

    By the way, I made this with a side of Herb Barley, thats what you see in the background in the picture above.  Oh, it was divine.

    You can also serve this with some quinoa or brown rice if you want to keep it gluten-free.  I was experimenting with barley which I never use so wanted to give it a shot.

    I have tons of healthy recipes for grains and legumes so if you want to try some quinoa recipes or rice recipes, go to My Pinterest Boards.  You will find all kinds of recipes there.  And workouts too!  You name it, you will find it there all organized to make your life easier so make sure to go there now and hit FOLLOW ALL so you can have easy access to it and never miss when I post a new one.

    You know I normally tell you not to get used to having "dessert" or something "sweet" after a meal.  But on days like this, you know what would be really good?  My Coconut-Chip Gluten-Free Cake.  

    And this is what is really great about learning to be moderate with your nutrition and enjoying eating healthy by investing some time in the kitchen.

    I love knowing that no matter what kind of mood I am in or what kind of day it is, there is always a way to make a healthy meal taste amazing.  And my dear friend, when you learn that, you will get amazing results and you will be able to maintain them.

    If you have been trying to eat healthy and exercise more, but you haven't been seeing good results.  It may be because you are eating the wrong foods.

    There are some foods that are super inflammatory and if you eat them, no matter how little calories you eat or how much you exercise,you will not be able to burn fat or lose weight.

    The reason is simple.

    When you eat foods that are inflammatory, it creates inflammation in your digestive track which basically makes it impossible for you to burn fat and lose weight.

    This is so important and makes such a huge impact on your results that I decided to compile these foods into a PDF for you.  

    So go to the following link where you can download this information for free.  I also added a list of 5 Foods that are NECESSARY for you to include in your diet if you want to LOSE WEIGHT and GET TONED.  Foods that you should eat daily!

    I also took the liberty to share with you a short video of my favorite 5 ABS EXERCISES.  The ones that have gotten me ABS after having 2 kids (daughter is 15 months) and I never had them before.  Here is the link so you can download the PDF and get the VIDEO.  Start applying it right now.  Take those 5 foods out of your KITCHEN immediately!  LINK TO PDF & VIDEO

    Taking these foods out of my diet was the one thing I did that gave me the best results.  I now, after 2 kids actually have ABS and am in the best shape of my life.  I mean, I have been in good shape for a long time now, but ABS defined like this..... never.  I had bloat because I was eating so many of these foods and it didn't allow me to see the results.

    Check me out with my 15 month old.


    I can't believe that after having 2 kids it is easier to be in better shape.

    I think its because I have no time to waste.  I am so busy that if I don't schedule my workouts, cooking time, eating time, etc, I would get nothing done.

    It can be easy, my friend.

    If you have a plan and you commit to it, you can also get in the best shape of your life and you don't even have to feel like you are on a diet or even have to feel deprived or over exercise.

    That is what I teach in my Healthy Meal Plans for weight loss.  It just give you the best foods combined and organized in a way to help you speed fat loss and do it without thinking lol.

    I know how busy you are, because I am crazy busy.  So I actually created these meal plans so that I wouldn't have to think either.  I just wanted to open it and follow instructions.  Its great having the meal plans and recipes available, you know what you are eating everyday and even grocery shopping is easy with the shopping list.

    And my favorite part is that the meals are so yummy that it doesn't even feel like a diet.  I love it.

    I find that people can get the best results when they can stick to a plan because the like it, enjoy it....  You know what I mean?

    I mean, when was the last time you did a "diet" that you could maintain for years?

    Um, never!

    I tell you that because I used to do diets all the time.

    They never worked.  If I lost weight, I would gain it right back after I stopped the diet.  Ugh!

    That is why now, I NEVER DIET!

    I just follow these Healthy Meal Plans that help me speed fat burning and metabolism but I actually enjoy it.

    By the way, make sure you are following me on FACEBOOK as I post daily workout videos, healthy recipes and tons of weight loss tips.  I also hang out there all the time and answer questions.   I love connecting with my peeps.

    Alright, enough of that, I know you are dying for the healthy recipe for this COMFORT TURKEY BOWL.

     Oh, and I also want you to try this aaammmaazzinnggg Smoothie and it helps REDUCE BELLY FAT.... Um, yeah, its awesome.  Here it is:  Blueberry Belly Fat Reducer Smoothie Recipe.

    Healthy Recipes:  Healthy Comfort Turkey Bowl

  • Healthy Recipes: Tropical Chicken

    Healthy Recipes-Tropical Chicken 

    Since you know I love food so much, you know I actually take the time out every week to make a menu for my family of what we are going to eat all week.  

    I love this, I mean who doesn't like to pick out exactly what they want to eat.  

    Well, I do know that some people are so busy between work, kids, school, home, etc that it seems the time to menu plan is non existent.  

    But I want to tell you something.......  You probably spend more time frustrated and thinking about what you're going to make for dinner every night, or having to go to the grocery store a few times a week or even having to pick something up.  

    I promise you, if you take literally 15 minutes to make a menu and grocery list for the whole week, you will save a ton of time.

    By the way, I made it even easier for you and I made a Pantry Grocery List, a Fridge Grocery List and a Freezer Grocery List.  If you stock up on all these products, you will be good to go.  Making meal plans will be so much easier.  So make sure to click on this link so you can print out the Grocery Lists.

    And if you are like most of my clients and you just don't know what the optimal foods for fat burning are and how to pair them together, and you don't have the time to make a new meal plan every week,  then you can just get my meal plans.  The ones that I use on a daily basis.  The ones that have helped me be in the best shape of my life after having 2 kids.


    It's just an option.  You don't have to get them.  But if you don't have the energy or time to do this yourself ever week or you are un sure of what the best foods are for losing fat are and how to pair them together, I think you will really love and benefit from the BeFit Moms Fat Loss Meal Plan Program. 

    Anyhow, I know how annoying it is to eat the same thing all the time and feel like you are dieting.  I know how boring it is to eat chicken all the time.  I used to feel like that when I would just grill 6 pieces of chicken and make 3 cups of brown rice a week, steam some broccoli and call it a week.

    It made me eat so bad during the weekend because I was so tired of eating the same thing and feeling deprived that I would totally binge eat on the weekend.

    It wasn't until I started really investing time into cooking and planning meals and making meal plans that I finally discovered the most consistent way of being able to eat healthy.

    By the way, if you feel like you are an EMOTIONAL EATER and you would like to stop because its totally messing with your results, you gotta check this out.... How To Stop Emotional Eating.

    I know one of the most frustrating questions people ask themselves is "what kind of chicken am I going to make tonight".  I mean, we are all trying to eat chicken because its a lean protein and pretty easy and quick to make.  

    But UGH........ REALLY???   Another piece of grilled chicken?

    So today, I have a great healthy recipe for you.  Its one of the most requested things on My Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Email, Etc.  

    Can you give me a good chicken recipe?

    But before I give you this recipe, I just want to give you some tips that will help you with your weight loss and fitness goals.

    Because it’s not just about cooking even though it’s a big part of it.

    I have found that a lot of people are “STUCK” with their weight loss because they are eating some of the wrong foods.

    So I have to make sure you are not eating one or more of foods on this list.  Because if you are, it can be completely SABOTAGING your results.  Yes, it can totally be true that you can be working your butt off at the gym 6 days a week, eating super healthy (as you think), but if you are eating one or more of these foods, you will NOT BE ABLE TO LOSE WEIGHT.  The reason is because these foods though some may think are healthy or not so bad, are actually very inflammatory.

    Inflammation in the digestive track makes it incredibly hard if not impossible to burn fat. So in order to be able to burn fat so you can lose weight effectively, its crucial that you take these foods out of your diet.

    This is so important and makes such a huge impact on your results that I decided to compile these foods into a PDF for you.  So go to the following link where you can download this information for free I also added a list of 5 Foods that are NECESSARY for you to include in your diet if you want to LOSE WEIGHT and GET TONED. Foods that you should eat daily!

    I also took the liberty to share with you a short video of my favorite 5 ABS EXERCISES.  The ones that have gotten me ABS after having 2 kids (daughter is 15 months) and I never had them before.  Here is the link so you can download the PDF and get the VIDEO.  Start applying it right now.  Take those 5 foods out of your KITCHEN immediately!  LINK TO PDF & VIDEO

    Ok, here it is.  

    Its delicious, easy to make, fresh and super healthy.  If you like it, please SHARE IT.  Just click on the links above this article and Tweet it, FB it, Digg it, Pin It, etc.

  • Healthy Recipes: Baked Quinoa Chicken

    Healthy Recipes: Baked Quinoa Chicken 

    I truly believe that one of the reasons why people have such a hard time losing weight, keeping the weight off and getting great results is because they are never CONSISTENT with their clean eating.

    Most people have great intensions and start "dieting" for a few weeks, but after a few weeks of depriving yourself, counting calories, and eating meals that you don't enjoy.........  Its easy to fall off the wagon and start eating whatever you want.

    I have found that if you take a few extra steps to making healthy taste good, then you can enjoy what you eat and if you enjoy what you eat, then you can stick to it for way longer which in turn gets you much better results.

    Consistency is really the key.

    Which means you have to be consistent with your healthy eating.  Which means you have to be consistent with your cooking and meal planning and prepping.

    It's really not hard, its just a matter of getting into a routine.

    That is what I love and I think what others love about My BeFit Moms Program.  Having the meals plans ready and the shopping lists and how it tells you how to prep for other meals as you cook really helps me and people get into a really good routine.

    I think that is why they get such great results.  Actually they lose 2-6 lbs per week when they start the BeFit Moms Meal Plan Program.  Pretty crazy huh?  Especially since they actually start enjoying and loving what they eat.  I follow it on a weekly basis :)

    If you are struggling to lose weight or even those last 5 lbs you want to lose, think about creating a plan that you can be consistent with.  Plan your meals for the week, get all your groceries on one day.  Prep some snacks.  If you do, you will be more successful.

    If you need recipe ideas, I post tons all the time on My Facebook Page.  So be sure to go there and LIKE my page so that you get all the updates, recipes, workouts, etc.

    You can also look through My Eat To Be Fit Healthy Recipes E-Book.  With over 300 healthy recipes all organized by Proteins, Carbs, Veggies, Breakfast, Snacks.....  I'm sure it will be easy to find some recipes for your meal plan.

    And if you are like most my clients who don't have time, or don't know how to put the best combinations of foods together to be able to lose weight, then you may really love the BeFit Moms Meal Plan Program while you learn how to meal plan, prep, shop, etc.

    You may also not be able to lose weight because you may be "eating clean", but you may be eating one or more of THE FOODS ON THIS LIST.  There are 5 foods that are super inflammatory.  Inflammation in your digestive track, doesn't allow you to burn fat, no matter how little you are eating.  So this may be your problem as to why you keep "dieting" and "Exercising" but not seeing the scale move.

    I put THIS LIST in a nice little PDF for you so that you can print it and put it in your kitchen and make sure to not eat them.  I also decided to add there the 5 Foods that you must eat on a daily basis to help you lose fat and gain muscle.  And there's a bonus 1 minute video there for you too.  So click on THIS LINK and you can download the PDF and go through your kitchen an literally throw it all out.

    Ok, now want this "BREADED CHICKEN CUTLET RECIPE? 

    Who doesn't like a breaded chicken cutlet?

    But the guilt just doesn't let us truly enjoy it.  I have a solution to this and its using an ingredient that a lot of people don't know about, but its awesome!

    It's Quinoa Flakes (I usually find them at Whole Foods) and I have made tons of delicious healthy recipes with them.  Not only are they high in protein, gluten-free and incredibly high in nutrients but they are DEELISH!

    The great thing about this healthy recipe is that it takes minutes to make.  And my son and picky eater of a hubby loved it.  So I encourage you to try it and let your whole family try it.

    If you are bored of eating the same baked or grilled plain chicken, you will love this recipe and here is another chicken recipe that I love, its insanely good and super healthy.  It almost tastes like Chicken Parmesan.  Click here for tis Healthy Spinach Dip Marinara Chicken Recipe.

    Healthy Recipes:  Baked Quinoa Chicken

    4 Servings


    1 cup quinoa flakes

    2 tsp each of paprika, oregano, thyme, garlic powder, onion powder

    S&P to taste

    2 tbsp Dijon mustard

    1 tbsp Agave nectar

    4 chicken cutlets

    1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped


    In a small bowl, mix together the mustard and agave.  In a shallow dish mix the quinoa flakes and herbs and S&P.  With a spoon pour the mustard mixture all over both sides of chicken and then place on the quinoa herb mixture and coat evenly on both sides.  Place on a lined baking dish and bake in the oven for ~20-25 minutes or until done.  Sprinkle fresh parsley on top and if you have left over mustard mixture or want to make a little extra, drizzle on top when you serve.  

    I'll tempt you again with another picture of this delicious chicken recipe.

    This is a great dish to have with my Zucchini Cakes.  Have you made those yet?  Its one of my MOST REPINNED & SHARED recipe on Pinterest and My Website.  If you didn't get that recipe, go to My Pinboards and repin it from there, or print it out.  It makes a great meal paired with this Baked Quinoa Chicken.

  • Healthy Recipes For Strawberry Salsa On Chicken

    I have to admit, even though I love to cook, and I do my best TO MAKE THE TIME to cook, sometimes it feels as if there just isn't enough hours in the day and I am so pooped that it is a bit hard to make a yummy meal.  This happened to me the other night.  It was late, I still needed to get some things done and it was 6pm and no food was cooked.  

    Luckily, I always make extra's and have leftover's and that night I had some plain baked chicken in the fridge.  But you know me, I hate to eat BLAND & BORING food.  It just leaves me with the desire to eat more because I don't feel satisfied.  So I took a quick glance at my fridge, hmmmm what can I do to spice up these chicken breasts?

    As I set the jasmine rice to cook, I took out strawberries, scallions, basil , and.........  I had to.........  goat cheese.  It took me no more than 5 minutes to assemble this delicious topping for my chicken and I ended up devouring my chicken with strawberry salsa and I was licking my fingers.  

    Before I give you this recipe, I want to share with with  you something that will make a huge impact on your results.  Because I know it can be frustrating.  But I think most of the time, people are eating the wrong things and at the wrong times.  Not eating enough of the good things and that is why the results don't follow.  So I want to give you a very important PDF as a gift.  This PDF has a list of 5 Foods that are in most peoples diets but if you don't take them out, it is close to impossible to see results.  In this PDF, you will also get the 5 Foods that you must have in your diet to be able to lose fat.  When I take these foods out of my clients diets, they lose weight super fast.  Its crazy.  I myself got in the best shape of my life after 2 kids when I totally took out these foods.

    I have that and a ton of tips for you, so click here to get them:  WHAT TO TAKE OUT OF YOUR DIET TO BE ABLE TO LOSE WEIGHT.

    It makes such a difference when you actually ENJOY THE HEALTHY FOOD YOU EAT!  So, my dear friends, I urge you and challenge you to take the extra time to make your healthy food taste good and enjoyable because in the end, you will get better results.

    So check out my delicious chicken recipes.

  • Healthy Recipes: Zucchini Cakes

    Did you know that eating vegetables helps you burn calories?

    Yup, it does!  When you eat veggies, your body has to work really hard to break them down, in essence, burning tons of calories in the process.  

    Now if thats not motivation to eat up your veggies, I don't know what is!

    I know that what's hard for people is not eating them, its actually making them.  Most people are used to eating bland and boring steamed or grilled vegetables.  And not that its bad to eat them that way, but it certainly isn't enjoyable.  And I am all about enjoying your food, because the reality is......that if you don't enjoy the food you are eating, you are not going to be consistent with your healthy eating.

    So what do you have to do to enjoy your vegetables?

    You have to take a little time to make them taste yummy!

    And don't you worry, I have your back.  I have a great, fun, easy and healthy veggie recipe for you today.

    Now, before I give you the recipe, I want to make sure we got some basics covered.  Because if you are trying to LOSE SOME WEIGHT or trying to FEEL BETTER, or get MORE TONED, and you are eating some of "THESE FOODS", it will be close to impossible no matter what else you are eating or how much EXERCISEyou are doing.

    There are some foods that I try to always stay away from because they are super INFLAMMATORY and inflammation is not only the root of most DISEASES, but it also doesn't allow you to BURN FATeffectively.  So even if you exercise 7 times a week and eat 800 calories a day......  If you eat some of the foods on "THIS LIST", you may possibly not be able to burn ONE OUNCE of fat.

    So before I give you this crazy, to die for, yummy recipe, I want to give you this list of foods so that you can get them out of your diet and be able to see much better results.

    I also put together a list of the foods I always have and the foods that are CRUCIAL to include in everyones nutrition in order to not only be healthy but to also be able to lose weight and be able to gain LEAN AND TONED muscle.

    This is a lot of information and I wanted to put it together in a way that you can see it, print it and put it somewhere in your kitchen as a reminder.  So you can download it here in THIS LINK.  I also went ahead and gave you a 30 seconds video with some of the BEST ABS EXERCISES that I feel have gotten me the best results ever.  I mean ABS that I have never had (after 2 kids).  Again, here is the link:  Forbidden & Must Eat Foods

    Ok, here it goes!  Make sure to hit the FACEBOOK and PINTEREST button above the page so you can share this yummy recipe with your friends and so that you can make sure you have it on your own Pinterest Board.

    In a bowl, mix all the ingredients until well incorporated.  Form into little patties, whatever size you like.  Spray a pan with a little coconut oil spray on light cooking spray over medium heat and cook the patties until golden brown.  Flip and cook for a little longer (this side cooks faster).
