Get Fit 2014

Hi everyone:) I hope you have not all been as sporadic with your exercise as I have been with this blog! So today I have a challenge! 1) To see if anyone is actually reading this and 2) If you are to get you involved!! I have stated before I wanted this to be a tool to support each other and share ideas. I usually post a tip, challenge, recipe, and a quote. Today I will leave it up to someone else to share a healthy recipe!! Whoever does this first will receive a small token of appreciation from me for contributing to the blog:) You can post the recipe as a comment under this blog section-I am excited to see what yummy idea one of you comes up with!! 

Tip: When you go out to eat the choices can be overwhelming! You are engaged from the moment you walk through the door by the smell of different foods. To make it easier to stay on track look at a menu online before you go and pick a meal that fits your plan. By making a conscious decision of what you are going to have before hand, it helps to keep you from overindulging.

Challenge: Give some words of encouragement to someone who has been making changes to live better! Sometimes we all just need a little pat on the back:)

Quote: "Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time."Thomas Edison

I just discovered this gem last week. Chickpea Blondie (I omit the chocolate chips) It doesn't taste like chickpeas though, don't let it fool you!

Ingredients
Cooking Spray
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup all natural almond butter or peanut butter
1/3 cup pure maple syrup or agave nectar (you can also use honey if you’re not vegan)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup vegan (or regular) chocolate chips plus 2 tablespoons
sea salt, for sprinkling
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray 8×8 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a food processor(or blender), add all ingredients except chocolate chips and process until batter is smooth. Fold in 1/3 cup of chocolate chips, I like to use dark chocolate because it has less sugar but it’s up to you. Note: Batter will be thick and super delicious, so you could actually just eat it on it’s own!
Spread batter evenly in prepared pan then sprinkle 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips on top. (The batter may stick to your spatula, so I like to spray my spatula with nonstick cooking spray first.) Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean and edges are a tiny bit brown. The batter may look underdone, but you don’t want them to dry out!
Cool pan for 20 minutes on wire rack. Sprinkle with sea salt then cut into squares. Makes 16 blondies.

For everyone that is reading this that has made a change in their current lifestyle no matter how small or how large remember you are doing it for yourself. Don't let anyone else out there try to tell you that you are not making any progress or making any changes for the better because if you don't feel like you are or do it for yourself then these negative influences will get to you. Continue to keep up the good work and no matter how far you fall of track remember that every passing minute is another chance to turn your life around and do not give up that opportunity to get back on track.

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

Chicken breasts, boneless
2 cans Black beans
1 can Corn
3 cloves Garlic (or use minced garlic)
1 Green or red bell pepper, small
1/2 tsp Oregano
1 can Ro-tel diced tomatoes & green chiles (I would recommend 2 cans)
1 Yellow onion, large
4 cups Chicken broth, low-sodium

You simply place the chicken breast at the bottom of your slow cooker and add the rest of the ingredients. Let cook on low all day. Add shredded cheese of your choice and a tsp of sour cream when you are ready to eat!

This is so EASY and DELICIOUS!! Except for the cheese and sour cream is all paleo and healthy!
