If you follow the millions of Fitness Instagram and Facebook accounts in the social media world, then you'll see a lot of them counting macros, and calories, and a oh so very strict diet. This is all excellent and it takes time, dedication, and a lot of planning. As a mom especially a mom like us (poor planner here), well as two very busy mom's we put macros counting at the bottom of the priority list, don't take that the wrong way we do know that having a healthy proper balance of Carbs, Proteins, and Fats is a priority we currently do not keep strict track of these. With all that being said we will never put clean healthy eating on the bottom of our priority list, that is one that stays on the TOP. We try to stick to the rule that from Jillian Michaels. "If it didn't come from the ground, or a mama don't eat it!" She uses Cheetos as a example of both not having a mom or came from the ground :) now we do cheat on that rule and still drink protein shakes, and love Quest Bars, ClifBars, and all those yummy go to snacks when we need a quick fix, and we also have cheat desserts once a week. Over the years of being on this fitness journey we have found what works best for us, and once you go through your own journey you will find the same. We do recommend downloading My Fitness Pal app and logging everything you eat and drink to get a good idea of what you are putting into your body.
Pineterst is a great place to find some awesome recipes also. Left overs are also great for lunch the next day. Seriously you can throw everything over a bowl of baby spinach and it's always good!!
We have many more dinner ideas that we hope to share soon but for now we hope this helps get you by for a little while. Don't ever be afraid of trying new things and subbing things in the kitchen.
Eating healthy does not have to be hard, make it fun and involve the kids it makes them more aware of what they are eating and try to teach them that eating healthy foods makes them grow strong and healthy.
We hope you have a FITtastic Friday Beauties
