Every Day Salad

Every Day Salad
Looking for a great way to incorporate a salad into your “Every Day” without feeling like you’re eating the same thing over and over? Don’t get stuck in SALAD RUT! I’ve got some great tips and I promise it will be filling AND clean!
* Lunchtime is a great time to eat an Every Day salad. You can adjust it so it’s not the same daily! 
* Some items you buy for an Every Day salad can last days or weeks…which makes it a great consistent meal you can have daily, but change up the taste!
* Whether you work in an office or work at home you keep the “materials” you need in one spot! You can use Sunday as a “prep” day to get things ready for your salad. Grocery shop, hard-boil eggs, bake or cook chicken, wash and cut up veggies, separate foods into containers and portion out sizes!
* Summer/Farmer’s Market-time is an AWESOME time to make salads for lunch, but really it can be done ALL YEAR LONG!
* Some Salad basics? Some good greens (romaine or leaf are good options NOT head lettuce), cucumbers or zucchini and tomato are great starters to build off of, but really, ANYTHING GOES!
Here are some ideas for salad fillers. There are SO many more ideas here, but I wanted to give you some ideas of how to build a great salad that can be changed up daily:

VEGGIES: Beets, kale, carrots, mushrooms, hot peppers, green onions, cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, broccoli, corn
PROTEIN: Tuna, chicken, eggs, ground turkey, turkey bacon, steak, shrimp, salmon, quinoa, marinated tofu 
DAIRY: Feta, fresh mozzarella, cut up string cheese, cheddar cheese, gorgonzola cheese, cottage cheese
BEANS: Garbanzo beans, black beans, kidney beans
HEALTHY FATS: Sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, olives, avocado, almonds, cashew
FRUIT: Mango, strawberries, blueberries
*You will want to use a “clean” dressing on this. I personally prefer lemon or red wine vinegar alone and sometimes add a touch of mustard, some people like hot sauce, but I know that can be hard for some people to stomach, so here is a great simple dressing recipe:

Red Wine Vinaigrette 
½ Cup Red Wine Vinegar
¼ Cup Olive Oil
1 Clove Garlic
Sea Salt/Pepper

Wouldn't it be nice if food grew on trees and we didn't have to pay for it? just grab and go.
Well, since that is not possible, I want to share with you some tips and my favorite fit budget friendly picks.  
  • Lean ground chicken, turkey, beef
  • Canned tuna
  • Eggs
  • Cottage cheese
  • Potatoes 
  • Brown rice
  • Oats
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Cucumbers,
  • Zuchinni
  • Broccoli
  • Bananas 
  • Frozen fruts and vegetables
  • Beans, lentils
  • Peanuts
  • Peanut butter (you can even make your own at home with roasted peanuts, put in blender and patiently wait for it to turn creamy.  no need to add any liquid, they will release their own fat and create that creamy texture)
  • Whole grain breads and pastas

That's pretty much what I eat on a regular basis and I recommend you stick with these as well, of course there is room for variety but make this list your staple every time you go food shopping. 

Plan your meals, repeating some of the same during the day will help you save prepping time and also allows you to buy in bulk, saving some money of course. 

Stay away from bars, frozen prepackaged meals, you end up paying more because you are paying for the processing and packaging. 

When it comes to fresh produce, buy in season, they'll be more nutritious, fresh, and of course cheaper.

Take advantage of sales, store brands and coupons.  

Of course you could be eating salmon, almonds, quest bars, and fancy steak but the reality is we want to keep ourselves healthy and fit and save our pennies to enjoy a happy life!

    Prayers have been answered!! This is amazing!!! great news for everyone!! New Recipe book from the super awesome Autumn Calabrese! She created the mega-popular 21 Day Fix® and 21 Day Fix EXTREME®. Now trainer extraordinairre, Autumn Calabrese, is back with the long-awaited arrival of her new cookbook, Fixate
    The demand for the book has been off the charts. "People have been asking about it for so long," she says. It will become available after July 14th. join the mailing list to be notified of price, availability and further details.... this is going to be great..  http://goo.gl/forms/pHYaStiJWa
    Fixate will teach you how to make healthy, delicious meals that fit into your busy lifestyle. And every recipe includes container equivalents to use with 21 Day Fix, as well as nutritional information you can use with any Beachbody® fitness program. So what inspired Autumn to assemble this culinary masterpiece?
    Autumn reached into her family history for inspiration. "My family was in the restaurant business, so I basically grew up in the kitchen," she explains. "I was able to take my family's recipes and make them healthier."
    "We took our time, tested the recipes and I love every single one of them," she says with pride. "It's not fancy cooking; there's a variety of everyday go-to recipes and special recipes for special occasions."
    101 recipes!! Wow!!! that is going to be so great and a great addition to every kitchen! I am really excited to share this new project with my peeps. Some were creations of a chef very close to Autumn's heart: her brother. 
    Each of the recipes comes complete with detailed instructions, mouthwatering photos, nutritional information and container equivalents. What's more, Autumn has added icons to each recipe that will let readers know if they are paleo, gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian.
    "This book is for everybody," says Autumn. "You don't have to be graduates of 21 Day Fix or 21 Day Fix EXTREME®. You also don't have to be a chef or great in the kitchen. It's for anyone who wants to make healthier versions of the foods they love."
    And in addition to all the amazing recipes, Autumn has also included a detailed checklist for her absolute must-have kitchen and pantry staples, as well as the basic utensils and tools that every cook needs.
    21 day fix, dream team, fixate, 21day fix extreme
    You'll find a section for every possible meal you can imagine: simple breakfasts
    • on-the-go lunches
    • sit down dinners
    • soups
    • salads
    • healthy snacks like kale chips and protein bars.

    Autumn insisted that all the "on-the-go" lunch recipes be easy and fast for working moms. "I based all of the lunches off leftovers from dinner and even breakfast," she reveals. "I turned them into delicious, easy-to-make lunch recipes." Autumn adds, "I also included a few of my favorite Shakeology recipes—even some Fix-approved skinny cocktails."
    And then there's the desserts. "I have a big sweet tooth so I was really pleased with them," she says. "I especially love the brownies (made with chick peas), peanut butter cookies and cake recipes, and the desserts are all gluten-free so absolutely everyone can enjoy them."

    Here's some more tasty news, we have her programs with Shakeology at a reduced price, throughout the month of June!!!  I am hosting a Challenge group starting June 15th and i think you don't want to miss this opportunity to get fit and leaner this Summer!
