Welcome to another fantastic Guest Chef Thursday (wanna join in the fun? Email me at MizFit08@yahoo.com!)
Im honored she made the time to share her food/nutritions insights with the MizFits.
I love food! That’s the thing…I could eat anything at anytime!
BUT—-obviously that won’t work when you are trying to stay fit!
I used to hate planning meals. It’s so tedious and time consuming and I would rather be doing something else, but I would do it! Now, since I came across the best cookbook EVER, I love planning my meals! The BEST thing about this cookbook is that it is so easy to pick out what foods I need to eat and when is the best time to eat them. I am a carb sensitive person. I have to plan my starchy carb meals around my workouts or early morning meals or I look like and feel like a puffy balloon!
With Gourmet Nutrition 2.0 all the recipes are divided into Anytime Meals and Post Workout Meals. How perfect is THAT! I just go through, and depending on if I worked out that day, I pick out meals and DONE! The snack ideas are so yummy and filling, too!
Here is my all time favorite breakfast and lunch recipes (made to suit my taste):
Texas Thin Crust Pizza (Anytime Meal)
3 oz lean ground turkey
1/4 cup red pepper (diced)
1/4 cup tomato (diced)
1/2 whole wheat tortilla
1/4 cup feta cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown lean ground turkey and season. Add peppers and tomato an d saute’. Lay tortilla on baking sheet and spread turkey and vegetable mixture evenly on the tortilla. Top with feta cheese and bake until cheese is melted (about 10 minutes).
Sunrise Sundae with French Toast Hash Browns (Post Workout Meal)
1/4 cup apple (diced)
1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
1/4 cup pear (diced)
1/8 cup fat free plain yogurt
1/4 cup strawberries (sliced)
1/4 cup almonds/walnuts (crushed)
1 slice 4:9 Eziekel bread
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Sundae – Place all ingredients in bowl and stir.
French Toast – Cut bread into cubes. Whisk egg, cinnamon and salt and add bread. Let soak 30 seconds. Add olive oil to pan and add bread and egg mixture. Top Sundae with French Toast or add on the side!
