fat killers
THURSDAY/DAY 4:
#1 Spark upon rising
#2 EAT (Yep, that’s right, NO FIBER)
#3 W/ dinner take 4 OmegaPlex AND @ bedtime take your herbal cleanse pill pack
BREAKFAST:  Protein smoothie
SNACK:  AdvoRaw (fruit & nuts bar)
LUNCH:  Rotissere chicken wrap (whole wheat flat out, chicken, lg romaine leaves, cucumber, tomatoe, cracked pepper, olive oil & balsalmic vinegar) & manadrin orange
SNACK:  Kale chips and berries
DINNER:  Grilled talapia, asapargus and brown rice
Chocolate Protein Smoothie:
•150 mL coconut milk OR almond milk
•¼ cup rolled oats
•1 heaping tsp ground flax seed
•1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
•1 small overripe banana
•1 tbsp agave nectar
•6 ice cubes (unless you use a frozen banana)
1.Blend all ingredients together until the ice cubes have been all blended up and you no longer see large bits of oatmeal.
Kale Chips:
4 cups firmly packed kale leaves
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash and trim the kale by ripping out the stems and ribs from the center of the leaves. Lay them out onto a cookie sheet and sprinkle the leaves with a tablespoon of olive oil. Using your hands toss the leaves around to evenly distribute the oil then lay them out into a single layer on the sheet. Bake for 5 minutes, then turn kale pieces over and bake for 5 – 7 minutes more until kale turns brown, paper-thin, and brittle. (They can quickly go from perfect to overdone so keep a close watch at the end!) Remove from oven and toss with sea salt. Serve immediately.
EIGHT “HEALING” SPICES YOU SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE ON HAND:
Curry:  The starring role in this blend of herbs and spices belongs to turmeric, which contains curcumin, a powerful anti-inflammatory that’s 50 times more potent than vitamin C or E
Rosemary:  While grilling and sautéing require little to no added fat, cooking at high temps produces compounds called heterocyclic amines, which are harmful free radicals that may cause cancer. Luckily, marinating meat in a mixture made with rosemary before firing it up prevents the formation of heterocyclic amines by as much as 84%
Oregano:  One teaspoon contains not only six micrograms of bone-building vitamin K but also the same amount of antioxidants as three cups of spinach. And preliminary research indicates that oregano can help fend off stomach flu
Cinnamon:  A seesawing blood sugar level can drive hunger and cravings; the antioxidant compounds in cinnamon help prevent those spikes and dips by improving the way your cells metabolize glucose. What’s more, research shows that eating half a teaspoon of cinnamon daily reduces risk factors for diabetes and heart disease within six weeks.
Ginger:  Besides helping to settle an upset stomach, this peppery spice can also lessen workout-induced soreness: People who consumed one teaspoon of ground ginger daily for 11 days experienced a 25 percent reduction in exercise-related muscle pain
Nutmeg:  Despite having a hint of sweetness, this spice may help prevent cavities
Cayenne Pepper:  Capsaicin, the compound that gives cayenne its burn, also helps crank up your body’s thermostat, firing up your metabolism and helping you burn extra calories and fat
Cumin:  One tablespoon of these aromatic seeds fulfills 22 percent of your daily requirement for iron, a mineral that helps keep your energy level high and your immune system in flu-fighting shape
SPEND 20 MINS DOING ANYTHING THAT KEEPS YOUR HEART RATE UP…anything? ANYTHING! (u catch my drift) lol~
