Did you know that eating vegetables helps you burn calories?
Yup, it does! When you eat veggies, your body has to work really hard to break them down, in essence, burning tons of calories in the process.
Now if that’s not motivation to eat up your veggies, I don’t know what is!
I know that what’s hard for people is not eating them, its actually making them. Most people are used to eating bland and boring steamed or grilled vegetables. And not that its bad to eat them that way, but it certainly isn’t enjoyable. And I am all about enjoying your food, because the reality is……that if you don’t enjoy the food you are eating, you are not going to be consistent with your healthy eating.
So what do you have to do to enjoy your vegetables?
You have to take a little time to make them taste yummy!
And don’t you worry, I have your back. I have a great, fun, easy and healthy veggie recipe for you today.
Now, before I give you the recipe, I want to make sure we got some basics covered. Because if you are trying to LOSE SOME WEIGHT or trying to FEEL BETTER, or get MORE TONED, and you are eating some of “THESE FOODS”, it will be close to impossible no matter what else you are eating or how much EXERCISEyou are doing.
There are some foods that I try to always stay away from because they are super INFLAMMATORY and inflammation is not only the root of most DISEASES, but it also doesn’t allow you to BURN FATeffectively. So even if you exercise 7 times a week and eat 800 calories a day…… If you eat some of the foods on “THIS LIST”, you may possibly not be able to burn ONE OUNCE of fat.
So before I give you this crazy, to die for, yummy recipe, I want to give you this list of foods so that you can get them out of your diet and be able to see much better results.
I also put together a list of the foods I always have and the foods that are CRUCIAL to include in everyones nutrition in order to not only be healthy but to also be able to lose weight and be able to gain LEAN AND TONED muscle. This is a lot of information and I wanted to put it together in a way that you can see it, print it and put it somewhere in your kitchen as a reminder. So you can download it here in THIS LINK. I also went ahead and gave you a 30 seconds video with some of the BEST ABS EXERCISES that I feel have gotten me the best results ever. I mean ABS that I have never had (after 2 kids). Again, here is the link: Forbidden & Must Eat Foods Ok, here it goes! Make sure to hit the FACEBOOK and PINTEREST button above the page so you can share this yummy recipe with your friends and so that you can make sure you have it on your own Pinterest Board. I always talk about PLANNING being the key to SUCCESS. But still, no one does it and it could really make the biggest impact on your results. Would it make your life EASIER if I gave you a meal plan for the ENTIRE month? Yes, you read it right, I could give you one as a gift just because you are taking the time to read this and invest in your health and body! I know that most people don’t make a plan because #1, they don’t have time and #2, they don’t know how to make one that will actually work and help you lose weight, gain more energy, control cravings and help you reach your goals. It’s time consuming, I know! So I made one for you and you can get one of my MMF Fat Loss Meal Plan Calendars every month sent right to your inbox and I won’t charge you anything.

Healthy Recipes: Zucchini Cakes
- 2 zucchini, shredded
- 1 egg and 1 egg white
- 2-3 tbsp Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup Quinoa Flakes
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- In a bowl, mix all the ingredients until well incorporated. Form into little patties, whatever size you like. Spray a pan with a little coconut oil spray on light cooking spray over medium heat and cook the patties until golden brown. Flip and cook for a little longer (this side cooks faster).
You won’t believe how delicious these are and it sure beats a piece of steamed broccoli or asparagus.

I always say that PLANNING is the key to FITNESS SUCCESS.
But I know that it’s time consuming.
I also know that you are not sure exactly how to pair foods together to make them FAT BURNING.
I also know that it sucks to eat the same thing all the time and that when you do, it makes you feel like you are DIETING.
And that makes you at one point fall off the wagon and end up eating like crap for God knows how long.
That’s why its so hard to lose the weight.
I know that its hard to eat healthy CONSISTENTLY when you don’t enjoy the food because it’s bland and boring.
I know that you probably feel hungry a lot because you think NOT EATING is the solution.
Would it make it EASIER for you if I have you a meal plan for the ENTIRE MONTH?
