I am sure ready for spring. Are you? I’m excited to get back to my fitness website providing content for clean eating, exercise idea’s, motivation, and you will see a little bit of my family strewn in through out my posts.
When I sit down with my clients during the initial consultation we talk about clean eating. I touch on a variety of food groups such as eggs, chicken, and spinach. That are packed with nutrition to fuel and keep your body feeling good.
Do you feel stuck in a rut with Idea’s for your breakfast?
“I’m tired of eggs.” It’s often something I hear often from my clients. If you know me well enough I love eggs. I almost have eggs at least once a day. I love my chickens and the organic eggs they produce daily for our family.
If I don’t have them at breakfast I often will eat them at lunch. I eat my eggs in various forms and have listed a few of my favorite Egg-tastic recipes below to share.
Eggs are a great high quality protein that aren’t super pricey and rich in vitamins and minerals. If we have left over bacon from a previous Sunday brunch I will save it. I’ll sauté some spinach with my eggs and chop up and throw in the bacon. I am also having myself a piece of Ezekiel bread in this photo with my homemade freezer jam. I talk a little more about homemade freezer jam here: Homemade freezer jam
I love avacado and pairing healthy fats with good carbs and protien is great for refueling. I came up with this idea one day and have been hooked on this combination ever since.
Eating eggs with vegetables and salad help us absorb nutrients from the vegetables. I love meal prepping salads for the week with this combination below. I will often hard-boil a dozen eggs and then use my egg slicer and slice the eggs ino fresh salads.
I’m getting mighty hungry typing this post. What are your favorite egg-tastic meals? How do you incorporate eggs into your meals? I hope you were able to get some new idea’s and get take a little look inside the Live Fit Women’s Fitness kitchen.
Next week I’ll be back with my top five tips for developing healthy habits.
Enjoy the end of your week! We have a baby shower and I look forward to sharing some of my DIY mason jar creations with you next week!
Do you ever wonder to yourself around 3:30 what am I going to make for dinner? When 4:15 rolls around my girls are always asking: “mom what’s for dinner?”
That’s why I’m introducing: Cook with Michelle Thursday
Thursdays will be the new designated day on Live Fit’s site in which I’ll be sharing what’s cooking in our kitchen!
I also encourage you to share your recipe ideas in the comments section! I know when we find a new recipe we like it’s automatically added it into our family meal rotation.
Do you have a meal rotation?
Our meal rotation consists of 10-15 different meals that I rotate throughout each month. I often have a few quick go to meals when we don’t have much time in which I keep the things needed to make these meals in my lazy Susan.
I’ve found our meal rotation keeps us eating healthy, provides a good variety of food and helps cut down on our grocery budget. I work up a meal plan pulling meals from our meal rotation for each week and grab the things I need at the store and try to stick to my list. If I’m without my list I have no direction in the store and often forget things. When I end up heading back to the grocery store I end up buying more unneeded items.
Canning is one other way I cut my grocery budget and keep my family eating fresh from our garden all year long. You can read more about canning in these posts: Canning Recipes
On tonight’s dinner menu: Egg Steak and Rice Stir Fry
I picked an Egg Steak and Rice Stir fry for a few reasons. One I needed to use up some steaks we grilled a few days ago. Secondly, our chickens have been producing 6-7 eggs a day and thirdly I had a lot of vegetables in the fridge.
Egg Steak and Rice Stir Fry
Colored peppers (I used orange and yellow)
I diced carrot sticks up in my ninja (easier for the kids to eat)
Sauté the above in olive oil
Cook 12 eggs in a separate skillet (I added mozzarella cheese and tomato basil feta to the eggs)
I cut up the steak and added it in with the eggs
Cook 2 servings of rice in separate pan
Add all together with a dash of salt, pepper, seasoning salt and garlic and you have a egg steak and rice stir fry!
Enjoy and blessings, what is your favorite stir fry dish?
