Meal prep.. Tuesday?
I haven't trained since Friday. My youngest developed the flu a week ago and Sunday morning woke up struggling to walk.
You know what? Some days there are good 'excuses' to skip training. I love working out but nothing will ever take precedence over my family's health.
In saying that, my boy is doing well today and I'm really looking forward to hitting legs and glutes tomorrow morning 😊
Who says rocky road is only for marshmellows & sugary lollies?? The #o23 Blueberry Bark is my winner for chocolate coated goodness! Fresh blueberries, coconut flakes and flaked almonds coated with good quality dark chocolate is the perfect combo for a mini treat 🙈
It’s officially fall (although it was 80 degrees this weekend) and that means it’s finally pumpkin spice, football, & chili season!! I am a huge fan of easy crockpot meals that I can prep before work, cook all day, and come home to at the end of a late work day. Today I am sharing one of my favorite recipes - healthy buffalo chicken chili! This recipe can also be paleo if you leave out the beans! Try it out & let me know what you think!
Healthy Buffalo Chicken Chili
🔹1 pound ground chicken breast
🔹1 sweet potato, peeled & diced
🔹 2 carrots, peeled & diced or 10-12 baby carrots cut in 1/3’s
🔹2 stalks of celery, diced
🔹1 yellow onion, diced
🔹2 garlic cloves, minced
🔹1 teaspoon chili powder
🔹1 teaspoon smoked paprika
🔹1 teaspoon cumin
🔹1 teaspoon salt
🔹1 cup tomato sauce
🔹1 cup diced tomatoes (canned, not drained)
🔹 ½ cup buffalo sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce)
🔹 ½ cup organic chicken broth
🔹1 large can of red kidney beans (for paleo= no beans!)
1. Place all ingredients in crockpot, mix together.
2. Cover & cook on low 8 hours OR high 4 hours
3. Optional garnish- cilantro, chia & quinoa chips, cheese, avocado, ranch
Yummy, yummy is the eating healthy rule!
Salmon, mashed potato, veggies, and salad are just perfect together. I didn't take me much time to prepare: steamed veggies and oven baked salmon. That's it!
We have good fats (omega 3!), fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, proteins and, of course, carbs!
Love yourself and enjoy the pleasure of eating healthy ❤💛💚💙💜
I love blogging but sometimes it's too time consuming and tedious for such short posts. Don't worry, I am not abandoning blogging. However, over the next few months I will be transitioning a few of my typical blog posts onto Instagram because after all, Instagram is what I personally love most. Recipes and more meaningful/lengthy posts will still be posted on my blog along every so often, but reviews will now mainly be posted on here. 😊

CABBAGE. Such a simple vege that's often overlooked - but this brassica has some incredible health benefits. It's got a good amount of vitamin C - great for your immune system, cell replenishment and high in antioxidants (reducing free radicals causing damage in the body). This cruciferous vegetable also contains calcium, magnesium and potassium required for bones, muscles, and electrolyte balance. Some components in cabbage have even shown inhibit tumour growth which may mean a lower risk of cancer development. Iodine can also be found in cabbage - great for thyroid, brain and nervous system health. On top of all of this, it's a fab source of fibre to keep your digestive system regular and healthy. There's so much more to this common vegetable than meets the eye!
Sweet potato wedges, onions, bell peppers....the onions and peppers obviously cook way faster than the sweet potatoes (about a 30 min difference) so I just watch the time and scoop it out separately, spread and let the potatoes keep going after taking out the others (11-13 mins) then put the potatoes back in. Just saving time and pan space. Much love to all of you, little changes make a huge one!! Btw I cut out the organic olive oil in this one and only used Avacado oil❤️❤️❤️ #holisticstoner#holistic#holistichealth#eatwell#love#loveyourself#healthyfood
