To commemorate this glorious, Drake-infused occasion, we've whipped up the Ultimate Summer 2016 Playlist.
For me, this all started with Instagram, which has basically become one giant #fitspiration app.
I wanted an easy way to maintain my clean diet that didn’t require a ton of time, but still yielded results. There are all sorts of theories out there about what kinds of foods you should include in your prep.
Sautee vegetables lightly in coconut oil instead of frying to blast fat and up your metabolism. Steam squash and pull it apart gently with a fork to replace traditional pasta for a gluten-free or paleo alternative.
Mix fresh herbs like parsley, cilantro, garlic, and even grated carrots and zucchini into ground meat dishes for succulent and moist proteins. Cooler — Some health and fitness enthusiasts advocate keeping your meals in a cooler so that they stay fresh until you’re ready to eat. Crock Pot or Slow Cooker — If you work long hours or have a busy schedule, a Crock Pot is definitely a must-have for your kitchen.
Oven Safe Pans and Dishes — When I first started eating clean, I ate A LOT of baked chicken breast. Start Small — You don’t need to plan every single meal for every single day of the entire week.
Cook In Bulk — If you’re making chicken for four lunches and three dinners that week, cook them in the same pan. Don’t let the thought of a messy and chaotic kitchen keep you from prepping your meals all at once.
Instructions: Combine olive oil, cider vinegar and sugar in a saucepan, bring to a boil, remove from heat, and cool to room temperature.
Stir pinto beans, black-eyed peas, corn, onion, red bell pepper, and green chilies together in a large bowl. Unroll second crust, and place on top, seal the edges, trim off excess with a knife and flute edge of pie with either a fork.
Salt is one of the main ingredients in almost every good rub, and it's great for creating flavor.
Combine A? c sugar, 3 T hot chili powder, 1 T dried parsley, 1 T onion powder, 1 T garlic powder, 1 T lemonade powder, 2 t black pepper, and 1 t each: sage, marjoram, cumin, dill, mustard powder, basil and celery seed. Then apply the rub and let the ribs sit in the fridge for at least two hours and up to over night. As the rub I was using had lemonade powder in it, I decided to build on those flavors with some hard lemonade as my liquid for moisture. Although this picture didn't turn out the greatest, I can tell you that the ribs were fantastic!
DISCLOSURE: Skia€™s Meat Market has paid to sponsor this blog post and provided me with a rack of ribs for the purpose of mentioning it in this article.
I made pulled pork the other night and had quite a bit left over so I came up with these delicious pork turnovers. When I heard that KFC took their 11 secret ingredients and mad some tasty nail polish, A I had to find out more. Once the temperature reaches 205A°, take it out of the smoker and let it rest for 30 minutes or so.
I have been making chili for many years, and I have entered my recipe in several chili cook-offs and have won a few trophies!! In a large pot, brown ground beef, after it's browned, add onion and cook for a couple minutes, until onions are tender.
To serve, place bottom bun on plate, add 1-2 T of pesto spread, top with chicken breast, a slice of fresh tomato, and the top bun (fig. The next time I make these, I may use sourdough bread and finish it off in my panini press.
Have you ever heard of a "Juicy Lucy?" Juicy Lucy is a cheeseburger that has the cheese inside the meat patty instead of on top, which results in a melted core of cheese within the patty.
Place a chunk of stacked American cheese slices (I used Velveeta) in the middle of the patty. Compared to carbs and fat, gram for gram protein is the most satiating macronutrient out there.
Hydrating, vitamin-rich, and loaded with antioxidants, they’re packed with nutrients that heal the body after a hard workout and boost immunity to prevent disease. Whole-grain, fiber rich starches are absolutely essential to your meal prep and maintaining energy levels throughout the day.
In the mornings before work, you can easily put chicken, beef, or your favorite protein in it with a low-calorie liquid (think low sodium chicken broth) for an awesome braise that will be ready by the time you come home. Rice cookers are another fairly inexpensive tool to cook rice that requires minimal effort to operate. There’s (almost) nothing worse than when you’re in the middle of a meal prep session only to find that you’re missing an important ingredient. It might take some getting used to at first, but once you’ve developed a consistent system that works for you, you’ll definitely enjoy the convenience of this meal planning strategy. Devoted to democratizing health, Taji believes that anyone CAN live a healthy lifestyle regardless of medical condition, career, budget or other secondary factors. A After rinsing and patting the ribs dry, I use some sort of binder or adhesive to help the rub stick better.
I thought to myself, "Where have you been all my life, cornbread salad?" It's kind of like potato salad made with cornbread instead of potatoes. It's hard to make it the same way every time, but I recommend adjusting seasonings to your personal taste. A If I do that, I'll cook the chicken breasts without the cheese and melt the cheese in the press.
Two bars in Minneapolis claim to be the inventor of the burger, though other bars and restaurants have created their own versions.

Meal prepping is the NEW fast food for health-conscious clean eaters. Tackle the basics with our simple, easy to understand guide to meal prepping like a pro. Besides being slightly jealous of their shiny plastic containers filled with yummy, lean food, I was inspired by these photos to start my own meal prep. Feel free to make substitutions as needed if you follow a diet that’s raw, vegan, gluten-free, pescatarian, etc. Protein also helps build lean muscle, burn fat (through thermogenesis), and replenish your muscles after an intense weight-bearing workout.12 How much you’ll need depends on your caloric requirements and performance goals, but for most people, aim for at least 15 grams per meal. Leafy greens like spinach, kale, bok choy, fresh parsley, cilantro, collard greens, and tons of other veggies are fantastic choices. With plastic containers, you can easily take food from fridge to microwave to meal time in a few minutes. If you work at an office, chances are you have access to a fridge where you can store your food. Scavenge the internet and you’ll find thousands of recipes for really innovative meals that are clean and lean. Bottom line, figure out what you’re going to eat that week and what basic meals you’re going to rotate around. Instead of always eating pork and quinoa, try adding cilantro, beans sprouts, and snow peas for an Asian inspired stir fry. Besides contributing to Lean it UP, Taji has been published for her health and fitness advice in journals like Thought Catalog. A While I have used honey, syrup and olive oil - most of the time my go-to is plain ol' yellow mustard.
In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown.
It's chilled in a spicy tomato juice cocktail with shrimp, avocado, red onions and cilantro! A As I planned on using pineapple in the finished product, I added pineapple juice to the water pan for some added flavor. A My family (aside from me) likes it more on the mild side, so I only used 4-5 jalapenos (de-seeded), and about 14 oz of crushed pineapple.
When this pie comes out of the oven, it releases the most wonderful, irresistible aromas of the Italian meats and cheeses! A Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least two hours and up to the night before.
A Once the breast are almost done, top with one slice of provolone cheese and allow to melt - 60 seconds or so (fig.
In a large bowl mix together the olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and hot sauce. Great sources of animal protein include chicken, beef, pork, seafood, low fat cottage cheese, and whey protein powders. Also don’t be afraid of non-green veggies like bell peppers, carrots, mushrooms, cabbage, etc. The convenience of plastic containers is honestly why meal prepping for the week has become such a practical strategy for eating right and staying on track.
When you come home from work, simply turn your rice cooker on and within 30-60 minutes you should have fluffy and perfectly cooked rice.
If you know that you’re going to be consuming eight meals that each include ? a cup of rice, cook all four cups at once. With all the different proteins, carbs, and veggies you’re preparing, there are a ton of different combinations you can make to keep you from getting bored (and maintain a variety of nutrients in your diet). Taji has been supported by numerous health and fitness companies such as Navitas Naturals, Glutino, and Holystic Hut. The outline is tailored to my recommended 1,200-1,399 calorie range, so if your calorie count is different, yours will look slightly different.Monday through Friday, I did two yellow containers at dinner (meal 5). A Interestingly, I didn't notice any real lemon highlights in the meat, but it was darn good!
Simply zap it (short duration for small citrus, longer duration for larger), let it rest for a moment, squeeze as you normally would.
A For me, once I'm done with the smoke, I like to wrap it in foil and put it back in for the rest of the time. You can always combine all the ingredients and put in your slow cooker and slow cook it on low for 8 hours, it makes it ever BETTER!
Dredge each chicken in flour and brown each side over medium heat until golden, about 3-4 minutes in butter. After many attempts and several weeks of totally failed meal prep, I’ve finally figured out a fool-proof strategy, including what foods to eat, lean cooking techniques, and the right equipment to simplify the process. Use this guide to quickly AND easily prep for an entire week of clean eats. Use our guide for a complete list of protein foods, including the top options for vegetarians and vegans.
Challenge yourself to see how many different meals you can make with only a handful of ingredients. My green container was also a double for lunch.Click here to download an excel template for making your own meal plan. Add beans, tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, chili seasoning, V-8, apple cider vinegar and spices. Once they are all rolled up, pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the top, covering all the rolled up tortillas. Unroll pie crust dough and place in a lightly greased 9 inch pie pan, fit into pan with edges overlapping. Bake the potatoes for 45-50 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, until cooked through and crispy and browned on the outside.
You might notice that for some food groups, I have less foods listed than the number of portion cups allowed for the day.
Once the potatoes are fully cooked, remove from the oven and lower the oven temperature to 400 degrees. It really is the best way to stay on track with your diet (and ultimately, spend less money too!)For the 21 Day Fix diet, you should be eating mostly whole foods.
This means the majority of your grocery shopping will be done around the outer perimeter of the grocery store, which is always where all the good stuff is hidden.I used this grocery list for the 21 Day Fix by printing it out and making a note in the margins of how many servings of each container I needed for the week.


In a bowl ix together the cheese, bacon and green onion and top the raw chicken with the cheese mixture. Return the casserole to the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the topping is bubbly delicious. Use any remaining dough to cut out dough leaves ( if desired.) Brush the top with the beaten egg. Studies show that starting your day off with a nutritious breakfast is one of the biggest factors of success not only in your diet, but in your life in general.It also makes filling a red container super easy. So, for example, if you purchase a whole chicken then you’ll be able to roast said chicken and have a delicious meal, then you can take the leftover meat and make a casserole-like dish the NEXT day, then you can use the bones to make a broth for a soup the NEXT day.
It is about being healthy on the inside AND outside.479 Comments Kelly July 5, 2014 Reply Can you substitute Shakeology with just normal protein powder? In the comment, it seemed as though the person felt like if they drank a shake they would get amazing results, so I replied “Whole foods are always going to be best.
I like to describe Shakeology as the missing link that fills in nutrtional gaps, but it is never going to make up for a poor diet”. A lot of people think shakes or pills can make or break results, I don’t feel this way, in the post I say that the shake is not a requirement.
I never say anywhere that the shake is the best option, I said whole foods are the best investment. It is hard for me to have a highly varied diet, I have to meal prep most of my foods, I’m just to busy and I wind up eating a lot of the same foods. I would not spend money on a shake that contained these ingredients no matter the price or would I recommend others to. Bethany Naomi February 14, 2015 Hi Bethany, I am in the same boat as Kelly in which I can not afford the shakes AND the fix . Btw, I have been reading your blog for a few months as we have been eating traditionally and I love that you lost weight eating this way. I am trying to lose a few pounds and this is encouraging because so many blogs tell you to give up this or that. But (and bare in mind that I am new to the real food way of eating) from what I’ve found on a local farm website, a single chicken costs $21!! And if you aren’t able to purchase the shakes, just make sure to fill its place with a healthy lean protein. Reply Jan Gordon October 15, 2014 at 4:02 amAlyssa, you have to consider that you will be making multiple meals from that one chicken, right?
Bethany Jamie April 1, 2015 Reply Actually I believe Shakeology is the best out there and nothing else can compare to it.
But it makes so much sense to have 7 categories and then just plug in the menus that fit that category. Genius!I would love to see some of your recipes, but I know that family menu’s are so personal that I just need to go back through all the stuff we eat on a regular basis and plug it in.
Plus, I just heard Sally Fallon give her Nourishing Traditions talk so I have a good idea of what we should be eating.Thanks a bunch! For the first two months it was because food was totally gross and I didn’t even want to eat it (much less spend time thinking about it).
I feel pretty good most of the time now, but I just can’t seem to get out of the planning dinner only for today rut.
Reply T March 13, 2013 at 1:26 pmWe’ve got breakfast down, but lunch and snack ideas would be greatly appreciated! My lunch plan usually involves leftovers, but my boys have been so hungry at dinner this week that we haven’t had leftovers. I’m also having a heck of a time finding someone with Nigerian Dwarf goats to buy milk from or at least try it! Reply Mor March 13, 2013 at 12:53 amI was actually just thinking about emailing you and asking you about your meal planning. Thanks Carol Bethany Lyn March 2, 2015 Reply Hi Carol, Unfortunately, you really need fresh or frozen fruit.
Canned fruit has nearly no nurtitional value as the canning process destroys most of the nutrients. In addition to the questions other commenters have asked about breakfast and lunch, I would like to ask about snacks. My husband works really long hours, and not sending him with snacks is not an option for me, but there is only so much whole, budget conscious food I can think of… Reply Heather Lynn March 12, 2013 at 7:30 pmOh, I love you! Bethany Mary March 24, 2015 Reply Carol, I just wanted to add that anything you do is better than doing nothing.
Because, being new to this whole foods way of eating, I frankly have no idea what to feed my family! Sometimes coming up with breakfasts and lunches are more difficult than dinner planning, simply because those are the meals that the cheapest, easiest to make convenience foods are available for (mac and cheese, cereal, etc) and those hours of the day (early to late morning) tend to be more rushed than the afternoons and evenings when we’re making dinner.
There’s only so many days of sandwiches or oatmeal or even pancakes that my kids are willing to eat. They might have a city program like Good Food Box Program that offers delivery of fruits & vegetables, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.
If you could cover ideas for other meal planning, too, that would definitely help and set your plan apart ?? Reply Amy Que March 18, 2013 at 7:23 pmThis comment has been removed by the author. The people I see that get the best results are those who follow the diet as is and push themselves in the workouts. Bethany Lelayna August 22, 2015 Reply Hi Carol, I just wanted to let you know that stores like Shop Rite and Stop & Stop offer delivery programs for people who cannot get out to the grocery store.
You would also count any other foods that you add with their corresponding colored containers. Also will using lactose free products (yogurt(sadly there is not a lactose free greek yogurt. I know there is a coconut greek style and it is NOT good at all) and milk) make a difference?
