    • Keeping Resolutions, getting back on the wagon!

    • Bookmark and Share
    •  1/28/2013 7:27:48 PM
    •    January is almost over. I know I made some resolutions to eat cleaner and be more focused on taking care of myself. I have not been perfect or even close to perfect for that matter. It made me think, how do we stay motivated throughout the year?  I read a quote that said, "by this time next year, you will wish you would've started today" or something along those lines. It made me giggle, because its true. There are many times where I set a four week goal and then fall off the wagon only to find that four weeks later I am setting that same goal wishing I would've just followed through.

         I would like to open this post up to all of our amazing readers! We have finally fixed our comments sections and would love some friendly advice and input on how you stay motivated or reason you get back on your horse so to speak.


      Here are a few of my favorites:

      -Get a buddy to go in a the plan with you and hold each other accountable. It's important that you get a buddy that won't let you slide!!

      -Write it down and review your goals daily (first thing in the morning works best for me!)

      -Be forgiving of yourself, don't waste time beating yourself up over mistakes, get right back up and keep going!

      - Keep your word to yourself! Don't over set goals. If you allow yourself to break goals or your word, you will not trust in yourself!

       

      Anyone else have any ideas?

      • Continue educating yourself on the benefits of eating whole foods and plants and the health crisis we face when we ingest foods not intended for our well-being. Changing the way we eat is the same as not smoking because it will kill you. The marketing strategies of giant food corporations puts blinders on us making it easy to forget why we make a resolution to eat healthier and safer. My remedy for that is to log into Netflix or whatever movie download resource you have and watch any documentary related to this topic.
      • I LOVE what cannonlilly said. I too think that education is key. I personally figured out that I like charts. To simply check a little box helps me celebrate small successes!

    • Quick healthy dinner for two!

    •  1/14/2013 10:34:16 PM
    •       I just wanted to highlight one of my absolute favorite meals. It is quick, easy, and packed full of powerful nutrients! I am challenging myself to eat a full pound of fresh veggies and and full pound of cooked veggies every day for 6 weeks. This will be one of my staple go to meals.

           I love when I can start my day knowing what will be for dinner. I have been using my crock pot a lot lately. It works great for soups, but today I used it for my yams. I put two large yams in my crock pot for 8 hours and when I came home from the gym tonight I was able to quickly put together this delicious meal. 

       

      Ingredients:

      1 large cooked yam

      1 red pepper, chopped lengthwise

      3-4 steamed kale leaves. chopped

      1 cup black beans

      salt and pepper to taste

       

      Directions:

       Split the red pepper in two parts. Mash yam and use it to fill each red pepper and top that with the 1/2 cup of black beans. I also like to put the leftover scoop of mashed yams on top of the steamed kale. It is truly a flavorful nutrient packed meal. Give it a try!

       

       

       

       

      • I love anything that involves yam, will be using this when theyre back in season for sure!! http://fenwickrevolutionresolution.blogspot.co.nz/

    • How about a healthy treat?

           I know some of us are coming off the holiday diet hiccups, but there are a few moments once a month that I just need (yes I said NEED) something sweet that feels like a treat. This week, it was late in the evening and I was hoping my husband would want to run to the store to grab me some dark chocolate for my monthly fix. No go, I have taught him in the past not to give in to me when I am "crave" eating. Like a good husband, he has held his ground. :) 

       

            I was left to rummage, you know you have been there! I was thrilled to find a small amount of vanilla almond milk in the fridge, something that I don't normally have on hand. This is what I came up with, it is delish and can be made with whatever combination of fruit you love!

       

       

      Strawberry Shake

       

      Ingredients: 

      1 cup Vanilla Almond Milk

      1 Frozen banana (or really ripe)

      1 cup frozen strawberries

      1/2  tsp real vanilla (the real stuff!) * optional

       

      Directions:

      Blend all ingredients in a high powered blender, enjoy a large cup on your own or share with a friend!  Feel free to trade out the strawberries for most any frozen fruit. Also, if you like a thicker shake add more frozen fruit. It is a hard recipe to mess up, have fun with it!

       

      Happy Blending!
