**Fit Tip:  Breakfast is absolutely crucial for your metabolism to churn all day. Remember, what your mom said, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Without a proper breakfast, your metabolism remains sluggish until you consume your first meal. Give your body it’s best chance to operate at it’s optimum!

BREAKFAST:  Meal replacement shake OR Dr. Oz Green Smoothie

SNACK:  Almonds & fruit

LUNCH:  Tuna salad

SNACK:  Peanut butter & dark chocolate energy bites

DINNER:  Spaghetti

DR. OZ GREEN SMOOTHIE:
2 organic green apples, skin on
3 cups fresh spinach
1 cucumber, pealed
3 organic celery sticks
1 Tbsp ginger root, peeled, I added more
1 oz parley
1 cup 100% lemon ginger Juice, or juice of 1 lime and 1 lemon
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve inmediately to obtain all of the nutrients.

TUNA SALAD:
4 oz tuna steak
Organic greens, as much as you would eat I used Arugula this time
1 large onion cut length wise
4 carrots cut with the potato pealer
3 medium tomatoes chopped
1 tablespoon hot chili sauce, optional
Dressing:
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Salt to taste

Grilled tuna steacks 2-3 minutes on each side. I use my indoor grilled pan and do not use any extra oil for grilling it. Set aside. Assemble all the vegetables in a bowl. Top with the grilled tuna and chili sauce. Mix dressing ingredients and toss over the salad. Serve and enjoy (OR prepare night before & store in fridge, good cold for salad tomorrow)

NO BAKE PEANUT BUTTER & DARK CHOCOLATE ENERGY BITES:
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup brown rice cereal
1 1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup flax seed meal
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup honey, next time I will use 1/3 cup instead
1 tablespoon dark chocolate powder, optional, I did not use this on this batch but I will on the next.  Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate for about 1 hour. Roll into balls about 1-2 inch in diameter. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1-2 weeks

SPAGHETTI:
1 lb Ground Turkey, Bison, or very lean Ground Beef
100% Whole Wheat Spaghetti Noodles (preferably stone ground)
1 large jar No Sugar Added Spaghetti Sauce
2 cloves minced garlic
1 medium onion, chopped
In a large nonstick skillet brown meat with onion and garlic until meat is cooked through. Add jarred spaghetti sauce and simmer until heated through. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water (unsalted!) to a boil and boil noodles according to package directions.
Tips for serving: It is best not to mix your noodles and meat mixture together so that you can control the amount of pasta and meat you consume.

YOU DO NOT HAVE to exercise.  These products were designed to fill in the nutritional gaps that we don’t fill even when eating the right foods.  HOWEVER, you will reach your personal/individual goals much faster when becoming involved in some sort of exercise program.  Exercise will help you sleep better, help you rise more vibrant and love your family more!  Just like reading God’s word will help you love your neighbor as yourself…even when that neighbor is loud & obnoxious (haha).  Now drop down and give me 20…
