Lunch yesterday was this salad with so many flavors! Again, SO good! This one had lettuce, purple onion, broccoli, broccoli slaw, 1 boiled egg, 1/4 avocado, sunflower seeds and dried cranberries. Plus a little spoon of plain Greek yogurt! SO filling and tasted great.
This salad combo or any salad combo is so easy when you're prepared. If you chop all of your veggies and boil a bunch of eggs ahead of time, all you do is dump into a container for on the go or put in your plate to enjoy instantly. Being prepared is so important because when hunger kicks in you need to have go-to foods that are easily accessible for SUCCESS.
chopped veggies! That's all it is! Lots of veggies. I chopped 2 medium zucchinis, 1/2 yellow onion and 2 medium sweet potatoes. I diced them up and sauteed in a pan with a splash of extra virgin olive oil. Once they cooked down a bit, I added a little cumin and chili powder and then....
Here's the veggies cooking on the skillet- Mmmmm!
And here they are inside a FlatOut original wrap that's been toasted/broiled in the convection oven! Oh yea!
To make these, take your FlatOut-
(if you haven't tried these, you should TODAY! 9g fiber 9g protein and only 90 calories! They taste great too and can go with ANYTHING! better than an low carb tortilla that we've tried too and you can't beat all that protein!)
Back to the recipe, take your Flat Out and broil until crispy...as you can see I like mine almost burnt! Ha! Layer with veggie mixture pictured above, some drained black beans and a sprinkle of cheese. Watch out because this was a family hit for all of us! My boys LOVED them and didn't even realize how extremely healthy they were :)
I used one Flat Out cut in half for my husband and I, and a regular wheat tortilla for my boys since they don't need all that added fiber and protein!
I served these healthy quesadillas with none other than Greek yogurt, avocado and hot sauce! SO good! Let me know if you try because I'm sure you'll enjoy!
*Plus this mornings breakfast was the veggie mix added to some egg for breakfast deliciousness!
See, once you have your fridge and pantry prepped with lots of healthy ready-to-go options, the possibilities for meal ideas are endless!
And a progress picture in my new workout gear! YEA, I finally bought me some fitted capri pants! I've wanted this style of workout gear for SO long and finally treated myself to some, along with some dri-fit shirts and lightweight dri-fit jackets!
I'm seeing HUGE progress in myself physically and through my workouts. My runs are more intense, my strength training has kicked into high gear!
With my b-day being last week, we bought a workout bench, a barbell with 200lb weight combo including dumbbells.
And another birthday gift- the new 2013 Nike Air Max's!
Ha, these are not for running only for fashion but the former P.E teacher in me had to splurge and buy some "cool kicks!"
It's all about believing in yourself and what you're capable of! Nobody is going to do the work for you and you may even doubt yourself at times, but PUSH THROUGH.
Know you're worth it!
Put your frustrations and discouragements into your workouts and your food prepping!
Anger and doubt fuels a workout like NONE OTHER! Trust me, I've dealt with a lot of it too, we all do at some point.
Trust in the process of healthy eating and burning calories, IT WORKS! How are you staying focused this week? How are you motivating others to adapt to a healthier lifestyle? Part of the fun in healthy living is inspiring others to do the same for themselves and their family! Being healthy is contagious so spread it like crazy :)
