Day 18 – AdvoCare 24DC

on January 22, 2014

DAY 18:  PHASE II:  THURSDAY 1/23/2014
The key to eating carbs, fat and lean protein to stay your ideal weight is learning how to manage your blood sugar. For instance, pairing a complex carb with a lean protein and any veggies or greens you want is a great example of a meal, but pile your plate with all carbs and not enough lean protein, and your blood sugar can get a little scurvy, leading you to crave sugar, and it teaches your body to store excess blood sugar as excess weight.  Or, for example, piling your plate with a major source of dense carbs like bread, with a dense source of fat like butter or nut butter, is a great way to either stall weight loss if needed, or they show how it will cause you to gain weight if you’re looking to lose.  Fats are welcomed in Trim Healthy Mama, as well as carbs, but when combined, you should note that they will cause weight gain, or a stall in weight loss. However, some people need to combine more healthy carbs and fats like children who are still growing, or women who have a hard time keeping weight on. (Yeah, I don’t like those people either)

Upon waking, mix Spark (pouch or scoop) w/ 8 oz water & take you first “30 minutes before breakfast” yellow pill pack (THIS IS ALSO WHEN I TAKE MY 3 CATALYST/1-2 THERMOPLUS)
Within an hour you need to have breakfast consisting of at least 10g protein w/ less than 30g carbs

**Your MRS/Meal Replacement Shake is to replace ONE meal each day, I choose breakfast but you can have it for whichever meal best suits you.

BREAKFAST:  **Take both white pill packs (or can split w/ lunch)
MRS OR Carrot Banana Waffles:  S/GF/DF @thesaffrongirl

•3 eggs
•1/2 heaping cup of grated carrots (about 2 small)
•1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
•1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
•1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
•1/2 teaspoon baking soda
•3 tablespoons coconut flour (scoop the flour with the measuring spoon to pack well)
•1 tablespoon coconut milk

1.Preheat the waffle iron.
2.In a mixing bowl, mash the bananas with your hands or use a blender to do so.
3.Add the eggs and beat well.
4.Add the spices, baking soda, coconut milk and carrots and mix well.
5.Add the coconut flour and mix well.
6.Spoon onto the waffle iron and bake according to instructions.

SNACK:  Blend 1 scoop chocolate Muscle Gain , 3/4 cup greek yogurt ice and splash of Almond Milk

**30 MINS BEFORE LUNCH TAKE THE 2ND YELLOW PILL PACK

LUNCH:  Skinny Egg Salad w/ small handful of grapes:  S/GF/DF (2 servings)
3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoons light Hellman’s mayonnaise
1.5 tablespoons plain nonfat Greek yogurt (i omit but extra protein)
1 teaspoons mustard (i omit)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Optional Egg Salad Additions
1/8 cup finely chopped celery
1 tablespoons, minced red onion or green onion (scallion)
1 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2-1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 to 1 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

In a medium bowl mix all ingredients, and any optional ingredients from the list below, until well blended.

SNACK:  Frozen Yogurt:  E
Put 3/4 c greek yogurt & 6 frozen strawberries in processor
Add 2-3 tsp Truvia/sweetener & dash vanilla
Process & enjoy

DINNER:  THM/Trim Healthy Mama’s Fooled Ya Pizza:  S  (this is A LOTTA work but sooooo worth it)
1. Lightly steam 1 (16oz) bag of frozen cauliflower. (I only had a head of fresh cauliflower and used that.)
2. Put lightly steamed cauliflower in colander and press out as much water as possible. (I used a big spoon to press it with.) The less water the crispier it will be.  I love it crispy!
3. Transfer cauliflower to a food processor and pulse a few times, NOT too much. You want rice-size pieces.
4. Add 3/4 cup egg whites (approx 6) and pulse again a few times. (You can also just use 3 eggs. That’s what I did.)
5. Add 2 cups grated part skim mozzarella cheese, pinch of sea salt, dash or two of Italian seasoning, and a little onion or garlic powder to taste.  (I didn’t use whole 2 cups)
6. Mix ingredients together well with a spatula inside the food processor.
7. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and grease parchment well (this is important or the crust will stick!!).
8. Plop entire mixture onto the middle of the tray and start spreading it outwards with a spatula or with your hands until it covers most of the sheet. Try not to have a thicker middle than sides. Keep pressing until mixture almost touches the edges of the sheet. This crust is better thin, but don’t let the edges become wispy thin or they will get too dark when they cook (it puffs up a bit after cooking).
9. Bake at 450 for 20 minutes. (You CAN turn over after 15 minutes to crisp the bottom. Flip it including the parchment paper, then remove the parchment paper. I do NOT do that).
10. Cool crust for several minutes before topping.

Once crust has cooled you can top it with pizza sauce, a little cheese (you don’t need much, since the crust already has it). Add any toppings you want and broil it in the oven until toppings are done.  (I always add spinach and chicken)

You need to cut this pizza into smaller, rather than larger pieces. This makes it easier to hold them in your hand. Very large pieces are slightly droopy. Also if you don’t have a food processor, just chop the cauliflower into rice size pieces
push up

**Wanted to give you all a “heads up”…I will be going out of town this weekend (taking my hubby away for his birthday and he DOESN’T EVEN KNOW IT lol).  Therefore, you all will be responsible for encouraging, supporting and uplifting one another.  Share your meal plans, recipes & ideas w/ each other.  (IF I have internet connection AND time, I’ll check in and add to).  Don’t be shy!  Tell about your workouts, your daily routine, how you’re feeling, what’s chaning about your body, how much water you’re drinking AND DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT CHECK THE SCALES AGAIN UNTIL DAY 25~
