Healthy Ground Turkey Recipes- Healthy Comfort Turkey Bowl
Even in the summer months here in South Florida, sometimes its gloomy and rainy and all I feel like is COMFORT. What I really feel like doing is getting under the covers with a good cup of coffee and some chocolate chip cookies and sleep all day. LOL
But since I can’t and shouldn’t do any of those, I settle for a good ol’ bowl of comfort (in a healthy way).
How about this for comfort?
There is nothing more comforting than a good bowl of soup or stew, so when I am feeling this way I make a delicious yet healthy meal like the one I am going to give you today.
By the way, I made this with a side of Herb Barley, thats what you see in the background in the picture above. Oh, it was divine.
You can also serve this with some quinoa or brown rice if you want to keep it gluten-free. I was experimenting with barley which I never use so wanted to give it a shot.
I have tons of healthy recipes for grains and legumes so if you want to try some quinoa recipes or rice recipes, go to My Pinterest Boards. You will find all kinds of recipes there. And workouts too! You name it, you will find it there all organized to make your life easier so make sure to go there now and hit FOLLOW ALL so you can have easy access to it and never miss when I post a new one.
You know I normally tell you not to get used to having “dessert” or something “sweet” after a meal. But on days like this, you know what would be really good? My Coconut-Chip Gluten-Free Cake.
And this is what is really great about learning to be moderate with your nutrition and enjoying eating healthy by investing some time in the kitchen.
I love knowing that no matter what kind of mood I am in or what kind of day it is, there is always a way to make a healthy meal taste amazing. And my dear friend, when you learn that, you will get amazing results and you will be able to maintain them.
If you have been trying to eat healthy and exercise more, but you haven’t been seeing good results. It may be because you are eating the wrong foods.
There are some foods that are super inflammatory and if you eat them, no matter how little calories you eat or how much you exercise, you will not be able to burn fat or lose weight.
The reason is simple.
When you eat foods that are inflammatory, it creates inflammation in your digestive track which basically makes it impossible for you to burn fat and lose weight.
This is so important and makes such a huge impact on your results that I decided to compile these foods into a PDF for you.
So go to the following link where you can download this information for free. I also added a list of 5 Foods that are NECESSARY for you to include in your diet if you want to LOSE WEIGHT and GET TONED. Foods that you should eat daily!
I also took the liberty to share with you a short video of my favorite 5 ABS EXERCISES. The ones that have gotten me ABS after having 2 kids (daughter is 15 months) and I never had them before. Here is the link so you can download the PDF and get the VIDEO. Start applying it right now. Take those 5 foods out of your KITCHEN immediately! LINK TO PDF & VIDEO
Taking these foods out of my diet was the one thing I did that gave me the best results. I now, after 2 kids actually have ABS and am in the best shape of my life. I mean, I have been in good shape for a long time now, but ABS defined like this… never. I had bloat because I was eating so many of these foods and it didn’t allow me to see the results.
Check me out with my 15 month old.
I can’t believe that after having 2 kids it is easier to be in better shape.
I think its because I have no time to waste. I am so busy that if I don’t schedule my workouts, cooking time, eating time, etc, I would get nothing done.
It can be easy, my friend.
If you have a plan and you commit to it, you can also get in the best shape of your life and you don’t even have to feel like you are on a diet or even have to feel deprived or over exercise.
That is what I teach in my Healthy Meal Plans for weight loss. It just give you the best foods combined and organized in a way to help you speed fat loss and do it without thinking lol.
I know how busy you are, because I am crazy busy. So I actually created these meal plans so that I wouldn’t have to think either. I just wanted to open it and follow instructions. Its great having the meal plans and recipes available, you know what you are eating everyday and even grocery shopping is easy with the shopping list.
And my favorite part is that the meals are so yummy that it doesn’t even feel like a diet. I love it.
I find that people can get the best results when they can stick to a plan because the like it, enjoy it…. You know what I mean?
I mean, when was the last time you did a “diet” that you could maintain for years?
I tell you that because I used to do diets all the time.
They never worked. If I lost weight, I would gain it right back after I stopped the diet. Ugh!
That is why now, I NEVER DIET!
I just follow these Healthy Meal Plans that help me speed fat burning and metabolism but I actually enjoy it.
