Karma Chow Cook Book

2 15-oz cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 small red onion, diced

3 scallions, thinly sliced

3 TBS grapeseed Veganaise

1 TBS Dijon Mustard

Sea Salt and pepper to taste.

Using a Food Processor fitted with the S-blade, grind the chickpeas to small flaky pieces.  Add to bowl with the remaining ingredients and mix well using a large spoon.  Season with salt and pepper.

21 Day Fix Lunch | Lyfe Kitchen

So today I managed to tweak my back before my morning workout. I am on day two of a new program.  My workout turned out to be subpar and I had to end it early because I was in too much pain.

My first thought was that I have time to go to the mall and get a massage. That’s exactly what I did. Once my massage was over I realized I was short on time to pick up my kids and we have a new restaurant that just opened up called Lyfe kitchen. This restaurant offers many options and alternatives based on the type of diet you are following. Because I am doing an Elimination diet with my challengers, I needed to be smart. So I went with the Barramundi Noodle Bowl minus the noodles. It was a perfectly cooked Seabass in kimchi and a broth. I accompanied it with my ginger mint Chia water. This meal only cost me 1 RED and 1 GREEN containe and the flavor was unreal.  I will definitely be choosing this one in the future.

21 Day Fix Super Easy Prep

If you are “On the Go” like me then putting together a meal plan to follow every week can be so daunting and overwhelming.  So overwhelming that you may just not do it.  You may have purchased the 21 Day Fix recently and just don’t know where to begin.  First, I cannot suggest enough that you connect with a Fitness Coach so that they may be able to help you through the process especially so that you don’t feel like you have wasted your time and money on this.  I know that my clients are continually asking me for Meal Plans to use on this program but they are difficult to come up with ESPECIALLY if your life is not lived by a meal plan.  My goal with my clients is to provide them with the skill to be able to survive on their own especially on the FLY.

Here is what my typical Sunday Prep Looks Like as well as a simple way to PLAN out your own 21 Day Fix Meal Plan weekly.  Keep in mind this Prep took me less than 1 hour so that I could get on with hanging out with my family.
