Hello fitness friends! I hope you are continuing to eat healthy, workout, and take care of yourself. One of the things I’ve been doing is cooking more meals at home.
When you prepare your own meals there’s knowledge of what you’re eating. I’ve noticed by cooking my own meals there’s less bloating, less fatigue after meals, and I’m losing weight. I’m losing fat.
So what am I eating?
Lots of vegetables, omletes, low fat organic frozen yogurt, fresh berries, spinach, kale, tomatoes, fish, farm fresh or organic eggs, mushrooms, a bit of cheese, shrimp, wild caught salmon, wild rice, a little red meat, and drinking tons of water.
Favorite meals, snacks…
2 organic or farm eggs
1/8 cup baby portabella mushrooms
1/8 cup spinach (organic, baby)
1/2 tbsp butter
1/4 salsa verde
1/8 cup queso blancos (Parmesan, Asiago, Romano)
1/2 tsp sea salt
Dice spinach & mushrooms, set aside. Heat pan to low medium heat. Add butter & sea salt. Slowly add veggies to the pan & sauté. In a separate bowl whip together the eggs. Once eggs are whipped, pull your veggies to the side of the pan. Add the eggs to the empty space. Lower heat to low. Cook for one minute. Fold veggies into your egg, cook one minute. Fold over. Remove egg from the pan once done. Top with queso & salsa verde. 🍳
Cup or two of low fat organic vanilla frozen yogurt.
1/2 cup of frozen mixed berries.
Place frozen berries in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute or until thawed. Pour mixed berries over frozen yogurt and enjoy. 🍨
Baked shrimp and Tilipia (or Salmon, other fish)
French green beans
Preheat oven to 350F. Season shrimp and fish with a dash of sea salt, 1/2 cup lemon juice, 1 tbsp of melted butter or virgin olive oil, and I use Spicy Greek Seafood seasoning. You may use garlic or your favorite seasoning. I start with frozen veggies and seafood. Drop green beans in your baking dish with the seafood. Bake 30-40 minutes.
Spinach salad is fresh organic baby spinach, diced Bella mushrooms, tomatoes, feta cheese, and topped with cilantro dressing from Trader Joes or another dressing of choice.
Here’s to cooking at home! Cheering for your health!
