Easy, Delicious, Quick FISH

image

I totally get it; eating healthy HAS to be convenient. When I actually have the opportunity to prepare a meal, sit down, and eat it (which is super rare), I don’t have much patience. I want it to be healthy, delicious, and quick. Below is a perfect example of exactly that:

Fish (I used fresh, wild-caught haddock):
-Heat pan on stove top
-Spray fish with a tiny bit of spray butter (or oil if that’s your preference)
-Lightly coat both sides of fish with coconut flour
-Once coated with coconut flour, sprinkle on seasonings of choice (I used salt, pepper, tuscan, and stevia for a sweet & salty taste)
-Cook both sides until outside slightly browns and turns crispy (3-4 minutes on medium heat)

Sticking with the “easy” theme, I added a vegetable and whole grain, brown rice side. Both the rice and the vegetables were “steamables” (throw in microwave and heat).

Enjoy!

Weekend Workout Warrior

Who says Sundays have to be a day of rest? In my opinion, weekend workouts are the best! Working out outside of the hectic work week makes for workouts that don’t have to be rushed and can be enjoyed. Find something you like to do & stick with that! There’s surely something out there for all of us.I love working out outside, while getting to enjoy beautiful views. 6 mile trail run in 42 minutes this AM for me. Who else got moving?

Egg Muffins

As they say, “wakey, wakey EGGS & bakey!”These are simple, transportable egg muffins. I made a bunch of these yesterday to last me for the remainder of the work week. Whenever I need an on-the-go breakfast, I turn to these egg muffins with oats, almonds, and peanut butter; it provides a great mix of protein, carbs (plenty of fiber), and fats.

Recipe makes 18-20 large muffins:
-1 carton liquid egg whites
-3 large whole eggs
-spinach
-chopped onions
-cheese (optional; I forgot to add this in)
-spices (basil, garlic, salt, pepper)
Feel free to add additional veggies and spices based on preference.

Mix ingredients, pour in greased muffin tins, bake for about 30 minutes at 350.

Resistance Band Speed & Power Work

Glute Work; Training Day

The first exercise is excellent for targeting the glutes.

My suggestions:

•use a barbell (not smith machine) as it requires utilization of more muscles

•stand with feet further apart than normal (outside shoulder width) with feet turned out

•get deep into squat with weight on heels •when exploding back up, make sure to fully engage glutes

•change hand positioning (right vs left hand in front) with every set

How do I train?

I train for performance, not for any other reason at this point in my life.  My weight training solely consists of compound movements and/or supersetting lower body exercises with upper body (shown in video).

Train strong, my friends!
