Beef Stroganoff + Zoodles


wpid-wp-1434152602512.jpg

This was last nights dinner and it was delicious.  I can’t remember the last time I made beef stroganoff.  I included the link to my recipe and the only change I did was that I used lean ground beef.
I made noodles for the family but mine were zoodles.  What I love about zoodles is that I don’t feel that I’m missing out on the noodle experience.  Its so easy, just spiral your zucchini and add to plate then top with beef stroganoff.  Sometimes I place the zoodles in the microwave for 30 seconds to heat them up.  I don’t like soggy zoodles, raw is best to my liking.
Happy Saturday 🙂

Here’s my Beef Stroganoff recipe, hope you like it as much as my family does.

Tuna Lettuce Wraps

Today’s lunch was a first for me.
Lettuce wraps with tuna, sliced green olives, and red onion.

It was refreshing, tasty and very filling, but unfortunately fish doesn’t agree with me.

I’ve been struggling for months now to get back on track and I have to say that in the past week I’ve gotten back on the wagon and slowly but surely I’ll be 100% on point in the next few weeks.  I’m excited to be creative in the kitchen and try new recipes.  So you know I’ll be sharing those with you all very soon.

Today I decided to show you what I’ve been eating.
My meals are as follow:
~Breakfast
~Snack
~Lunch
~Snack
~Dinner

Breakfast: An egg white omelet is a great start before heading to the gym.wpid-wp-1434054589008.jpg

After the gym my snack was Whey protein.
Note to self:
Next time pour protein in the bottle before getting in the car, that way I won’t get it all over the upholstery. wpid-wp-1434055174149.jpg

Spring Slim Down: Update


Hello Everyone,

These past 30 days started off great for this challenge. But then life happened and chaos began.  I did manage to lose 2 pounds.

The two pounds of butter represent the two pounds I lost…WOOHOO!!

At the beginning of May I decided to give our deck a face lift and as you can see from the picture below it turned out great.  That took over 2 weeks from start to finish.  Just in time as we celebrated our daughters confirmation.

image

I made this cake for her confirmation dinner party and it was her favorite, orange chiffon.  

Now that’s done I can get back to eating right and exercising again Right???  

imageDehydrated zucchini chips and wafers.

imageLunch: Spicy ground beef with baby greens salad with Caesar dressing

imageExercise:  I love my kettlebell workout and unless you’ve tried them you have to give it a shot, you’ll get hooked.  I’ll b posting my kettlebell workout soon.

imageTreats are not always food related. Here’s my latest treat, my new phone case, pretty in pink with some bling.

How did you all do on this 30 day challenge???

Atkins New Plan—Atkins 40


Atkins just introduced a new plan called Atkins40, below is the link and a copy of the plan in a nut shell.  Its seems doable since there are no food restrictions, you can have a little from each of the 4 phases, just stay within the 40 carbs per day.

ATKINS 40: THE FLEXIBLE, EASY LOW CARB DIET

With the Atkins 40 Plan, you can enjoy a full range of food options from every food group—carbohydrates, protein and fats—while still losing weight and feeling satisfied, never hungry! Vegetables, pasta, even potatoes? Yes! You can have it all on the Atkins 40 Plan, starting from Day One! Download everything you need to get started!

Here’s how the Atkins 40 Plan works:

Start with 40 grams of Net Carbs of carbohydrates a day. Net Carbs represent the total carbohydrate content of the food minus the fiber content and sugar alcohols (if in the product). The Net Carbs number reflects the grams of carbohydrate that significantly impact your blood sugar level and therefore are the only carbs you need to count when you do Atkins.

Eat three 4 to 6-ounce servings of protein each day. Eat 2 to 4 servings of fat each day.
