24 Day Challenge / Day 17

on March 21, 2013

Hello my dear friends…  I hope you’re enjoying taking your Advocare journey w/ me!  I’d love to hear from you but even if I don’t, I’m rooting for you from a far (haha don’t know why but in my head that’s funny…whenever I smell smoke I always say “a’far a’far” instead of “a fire” and my kids think I’ve lost it.. “NO MOM, IT’S A F-I-R-E”)




**Fit Tip:  Certain people are more active than others.  More active people will burn more calories through physical activity than less active people.  This has the second largest influence on your metabolism using between 25% and 30% of the calories you consume.  The amount of physical activity you do each day is something that you can directly influence.  If you drive to work, sit at a desk all day, drive back home, watch TV, go to bed and repeat then you are not going to burn many calories through physical activity.  However, if you make physical activity part of your lifestyle and do a little bit of activity each day it can quickly add up to a lot of calories burned.  Try adding Advocare Thermoplus to help boost your metabolism and increase energy.

Chicken and Pear Salad:  Using whatever kind of “lettuce” you enjoy add half a chopped pear, a few chopped slices of chicken breast, walnut pieces and a few dried cranberries

Cinnamon Quinoa Bars:  (Makes 12)

2 1/2 cups Quinoa (cooked and cooled)

4 eggs (beaten)

1/3 cup vanilla soy milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 Tbs Cinnamon

1 tsp honey

1.  Preheat oven 375 degrees.   2.  Combine all ingredients and pour into a foil lined pan.  I used foil but I probably would have preferred to use parchment to prevent sticking.   3.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until set and golden.   4.  Remove from pan immediately and cut into squares.    5.  Drizzle with honey and serve.

Lemon, Salt & Pepper Chicken:

•1 Average Sized Chicken Breast   •1 Tablespoon Of Extra Virgin Olive Oil   •1 Tablespoon Of Lemon Juice   •1 Tablespoon Of White Wine Vinegar   •1/2 Teaspoon Of Black Pepper   •1/2 Teaspoon Of Salt

1.Place the black pepper, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, white wine vinegar and salt in the mixing bowl and mix them together with the wooden spoon to form a marinade.     2.Once the marinade ingredients are fully mixed, add the chicken breast to the mixing bowl and coat it fully in the marinade.   3.Once the chicken breast is fully coated in marinade, pour the chicken breast and marinade into the sealable container and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours to allow the marinade to fully soak into the chicken breast.   4.If you have time, turn the chicken breast halfway through to ensure that the marinade soaks into it evenly.   5.When you’re ready to eat, remove the sealable container from the fridge, place the chicken breast on the baking tray and pre-heat your grill to a medium-high heat.   6. Once the grill has heated up, grill the chicken breast for 5 minutes on each side and enjoy it with a selection of vegetables or some salad.
