1/2 cup cheese of your choice
2 tbs flaxseed meal
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through. Add toppings and bake for another 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. YUM, YUM, YUMMY!!! I used TJ sauce, grilled chicken we had meal prepped for the week and low fat mozz cheese.
And kicking the craving, pizza option #2: Kashi pizza with additional toppings!
I bought the Kashi Roasted Veggie pizza and then added grilled chicken, extra zucchini and broccoli and baked as instructed on the box!
Pizza craving kicked in the booty! Both of these options were delicious and perfect because they hardly took any time to prepare! I have decided I need to keep these on hand for when that next pizza craving comes our way!
And this morning I woke up to a 2 egg, turkey and spinach omelette along with a slice of Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread topped with Neufchael cheese! AMAZING way to start our Sunday! Then that decision led to a 3.5 mile run at a personal best time/pace for me :)
I'm telling ya, the food choices are 90% of the work. I've always known it but never wanted to dedicate myself to fully living it, ya know what I mean? I am proof!
And we've been using our collards from our garden in the smoothies. When we all collards, we use more fruit to cut the flavor of the collards because it tends to be a little stronger than we prefer, but if ya add the right amounts, it tastes amazing!
And as for our meal #2 today, it was smoothies,
HIS AND HERS GREEN SMOOTHIES...awe, how sweet and romantic! ha! For today's smoothies, I changed it up and it was awesome! I used spinach, kale, coconut milk, ice, frozen pineapple and 1/2 cutie orange! Mmmm! it was very tropical and enjoyable!
It's gorgeous here in Texas this weekend so as a family today, we traveled to our local farmer's market and although strawberry picking season doesn't start until next weekend, we still needed a family photo IN the strawberries, right? Absolutely!
And since it's a long weekend-kiddos don't have school tomorrow, we will meal prep tomorrow afternoon and spend the rest of the day just chillin'!
Hope you're staying focused and on track.
Ya know sometimes as I look around I feel jealous at the fact that I have to be 100% aware of my exercise and what foods I put into my body if I want the results I am looking for, others sometimes do not. Some people out there don't have to worry 24/7 and keep count, and make sure they get that daily workout, calorie burn in their daily routine
BUT ya know what?
I don't feel sorry for myself for long. I know my body and heart are thankful of the thought, effort and time I put into my healthy lifestyle. I wouldn't change it for the world because at least I know what it's like on both ends...to be the unhealthy girl trying to change and then being the girl that DID change and DOES want to help others achieve their greatest self-in regards to health and fitness. I wouldn't change the fact that I have pushed my body further than I ever thought possible or I've set out to do something and successfully completed it!
So be proud of yourself too and don't dwell on the fact that it takes work to change...the work is worth it! The sweat, the tears, the pushing...it's all worth it. The reward is HUGE and the journey is something I don't regret, not even for a second! Don't you regret it either!
Keep at it and stay focused, stay strong, write your goals, live your goals and push through those workouts and food cravings!
