Chicken Verde – Best dinner ever

Mom’s, do you want to have a “winner” of a dinner? Here you go! Your kids will love it! Seriously, my kids were thanking me while they were eating. It was like they’ve been eating 💩all their life until this came along. 😂 Not kidding, they fought over who was getting the leftovers the next day!

I was happy they liked it, but it was kinda hurting my feeling since all I did was throw it all in a crockpot instead of cooking over a hot stove for an hour like I normally do. 🤔Maybe I need to think about changing all my recipes to crock pots. LOL!

The recipe actually called for chicken thighs but I used chicken tenderloins since I already had it at home from my ButcherBox. Also, go for really good salsa verde, don’t buy the cheap stuff! I got mine in the all natural & organic section at Kroger, but can’t remember the brand. I’ll look for it next time I go. I have used the Trader Joe’s Brand in the past too.

I served this with black beans & rice for the family and I just ate it by itself. I always use brown rice & I toast the rice with evoo before adding the water. For the black beans, I use organic and canned and I drain & rinse before using. Mix those together once the rice is ready. I thrown in some cumin & salt and that’s it.

Oh, I also forgot to add the cilantro, so that can be omitted too. 🙂 We added sour cream (full fat people…stop getting fat free) and that’s it.

Try it and let me know how your family likes it. I promise you’ll feel loved at least for one night. 😊❤️

FITober – Taking Applications Now

It’s almost October which means more than just pumpkins, Halloween costumes, and candy. It means that it is the start of my annual FITober Challenge!

Let’s face it, October can be hard on you. Starbucks is selling their Pumpkin Spice Latte, there is Halloween candy on every aisle of the grocery store and there are tons of festivals and parties to attend. That’s why starting a fitness plan in October makes the perfect sense! The group will keep you super motivated and accountable to reach YOUR goals. We are going to Slim down in time for Halloween and keep it up through Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Yep, no holiday weight gain for us! This simplified and fun plan that includes exclusive access to a private online support group & is personalized to your goals.

But trying to lose weight without a plan is just a frustrating time suck. This time of year should be fun, not depressing…

I was completely frustrated for 9 months after my 2nd daughter was born.  Then I found this system and it completely changed the course of my life.

It’s fast, easy, simplified, and fun. I got into the best shape of my life in the comfort of my own home. My schedule, my kids, my food, my living room, and some times my pajamas (don’t judge).

That’s real results, unbeatable value, complete convenience.

Ready, Set, Refresh!

Refresh Results 0614 FitKeriLately, I have been OUT.OF.CONTROL with my BLT’s … you know, Bites, Licks, and Taste … and with snacking late at night. As a results, I have seen the scale go up and have felt bloated and just feeling a little gross.

So, when the 3-day Refresh was announced I literally yelled in EXCITEMENT! 

What is the 3-Day Refresh:

1. This is a replacement to the 3 day Shakeology (hell) cleanse. This is more complete and provides the nutrients and food guide necessary to drop weight fast but in a non-harsh way. The Shakeology cleanse was never endorsed by Beachbody and honestly Shakeology was never meant to be drunk 3 times a day. Being a cleanse is not it’s purpose.

2. An automatic reset button. If you are like me, you need to see some quick results to increase motivation. This is it.

3. A way to drop up to 5 pounds in 3 days (some will definitely lose more) without STARVATION.

For this program, you are given a complete guide and schedule to follow for the three days. You eat/drink something every 1-3 hours and drink as much water as you can stomach. It is very easy to follow and you can also workout while doing it. If you drink a lot of caffeine, you may want to start decreasing your amounts a week prior to starting so that you won’t get a headache. Refresh

For me, this program showed me exactly what I already knew, but was ignoring. I have been taking just too many BLT’s which can really add up. Every time I made my kids a PB&J, I would lick the spoon. When I got them a snack, I would pop a “few” goldfish or crackers in my mouth. It’s just a few, so it can’t hurt, right? Uh, WRONG!!! All those little things ADD up to BIG things like lots of calories and added weight on the scale. Now, I am more conscience of what I’m doing and will keep my BLT’s under control.

If you are just starting a workout program or looking to break the cycle of bad eating habits, lose weight, detoxify your body, and dramatically improve the way you feel—without starving, then this program would be PERFECT for you. I will host a new Refresh group on the first Monday of each month. Contact me if you are ready to begin.

 YES! I’m ready to Refresh!
