WHAT?  DAY 23?  NO!  SAY IT ISN’T SO…  Well, this doesn’t HAVE to be it..you can continue on your Advocare plan (just as I have), contact your sponsor (or myself) to figure out which products are best suited for you to continue this journey~

#1  SPARK W/ 1ST COLOR MNS

#2  EAT/MR SHAKE W/ (2) WHITE MNS

#3  30 MINS BEFORE LUNCH 2ND COLOR MNS

**Fit Tip:  FIBRE:- Simple carbohydrates such as sugars, white bread and white pasta are much easier to digest than more complex, fibrous carbohydrates such as fruits, vegetables and whole grain products.  On top of this high fibre carbohydrates have a number of fantastic health benefits and fruits and vegetables are a rich source of vitamins.  Therefore, by making the switch over to whole grain bread, pasta, rice etc, substituting some of your processed snacks (chocolate, crisps, etc) for fruits or vegetables and making fruit and vegetables a richer part of your main meals you can improve your overall health and give your metabolism a slight boost.

BREAKFAST:  MR Shake OR Baked oatmeal w/ blueberries (i prefer strawberries)
SNACK:  Apple stacks (apple slices stacked like a sandwich stuffed w/ natural peanut butter, raisins and healthy granola)
LUNCH:  Tuna wrap
SNACK:  Popcorn trail mix
DINNER:  Fettuccine w/ sausage & broccoli
*Please keep in mnind you should be having 3-4 servings of veggies & 4 servings of fruit every day.  Even when i don’t post it, be sure to add in something from those food groups to a meal &/or a snack

Tuna Wrap:
Whole wheat flat out, romaine lettuce (or your choice), tuna, sliced cucumber, tomatoe slices, drizzle w/ olive oil & balsamic vinegar…rollup & enjoy

Popcorn Trail Mix:
1/4 cup corn kernels (will make about 8 cups or 2 quarts – adjust quantities if you wish to make more or less)
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 cup chopped walnut, or other nut of choice
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup dried apricot, sliced thin
1/3 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut shavings
For the Topping (suggestions)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt or other coarse grain salt

Fettuccine w/ Spicy Sausage & Broccoli:
1/2 pound hot Italian turkey sausage, casings removed, roughly crumbled
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 pound broccoli, tough stems trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces
1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 9 ounce package fresh fettuccine (whole grain pasta)
1/4 cup plus 4 tsp freshly grated pecorino Romano
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
2. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage and saute, breaking up large chunks with a wooden spoon, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring, 30 seconds. Add broccoli  and cook, tossing with tongs, 1 minute. Add broth, reduce heat to medium, cover and cook until broccoli is tender, about 3 minutes.
3. Cook pasta according to package directions, then drain and add to sausage mixture; toss well with tongs. Add 1/4 cup cheese and black pepper and toss well again. Divide among four bowls and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

SIMPLE EXERCISE PLAN:  Bicep Curls with Cans
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. Hold a can in each hand with palms facing upward, so the cans are parallel to the ground, and your elbows at your sides. Bring both hands toward your chest, bending arms at the elbows and flexing your biceps. Do 15-20 repetitions
