The EVIL ingredient!

There’s one evil ingredient that shows up in nearly all fattening foods.
It’s sweet, it’s pleasing and it’s packed with empty calories.
That’s right, it’s SUGAR.
Cereals, pastries, smoothies, juices, jellies, sweetened coffee drinks, packaged granola bars…the list goes on and on, but the common denominator is refined, white sugar.Cut this evil ingredient out of your meals and you’ll quickly be leaner, healthier and filled with more energy.

Trainer Ali Says…It’s SO easy!

5 No-Effort Breakfasts

Breakfast is touted as the most important meal of the day. Well, they are all important, but It’s the first meal of the day and the easiest to mess up. Donuts, breakfast sandwiches, pancakes, waffles, hash browns, sugary cereals…there are so many ways to start your day off in a fattening way.

Read on for 5 No-Effort Breakfasts that deliver in taste, nutrition and speed.

1. Egg Muffins
Traditional fluffy bakery muffins sure are delicious, but that’s the fast track to weight gain. So instead let’s enjoy a protein-packed egg muffin in the morning. These egg muffins are quick, last up to 4 days in the fridge, and will fill you with wholesome energy.

Egg Muffins

  • 6 Pastured eggs
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • handful of shredded raw cheese
  • sprinkle of salt and pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line muffin tins with paper liners or grease with coconut oil.
  3. Mix up the eggs, add bell pepper, cheese and seasonings. Fill 6 muffin tins.
  4. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until the egg is fully set.

2. Green Smoothie
Not all smoothies were created equal. In fact, most smoothies are nothing but cups filled with simple sugar – fat traps that are marketed as health food. This green smoothie recipe is different. Packed with wholesome protein and nutritious greens, it’s big on flavor, nutrition and the energy that comes from real food ingredients.

Green Smoothie

  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1Tablespoon sprouted almond butter
  • 1/4 cup wheat grass or Wheat grass powder
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 scoop Garden of Life raw chocolate protein
  • 1 inch slice of banana
  • Optional pinch of Stevia
  • 1/2 cup ice
  1. Combine all the ingredients in your high speed blender then blend on high for a full minute, or until the tiny pieces of spinach have disappeared and the smoothie turns a brilliant shade of green.

3. Hard Boiled Eggs & Apple Slices
You’d be hard pressed to find a healthier or quicker breakfast than hard boiled eggs and apple slices. It’s filled with healthy protein, fiber and energy prompting nutrients while being quick and portable.

Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Place the eggs in a saucepan in a single layer. Cover with an inch or two of cold water. Add the salt to the water. Bring to a rolling boil.
  2. Turn off the heat, leaving the saucepan where it is. Cover and sit for 10-12 minutes. Drain the hot water from the saucepan and run cold water over the eggs. Peel and enjoy.

4. Pumpkin Protein Smoothie
Pumpkin is the flavor of the season, so let’s enjoy it in this quick, nutritious smoothie recipe. The problem with most smoothies is the sugar content, so I’ve made this smoothie to be low in sugar yet still high in flavor.

Pumpkin Protein Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana (or half if you want to save on calories and carbs)
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 11/2 cups water
  • 1 scoop Garden of Life Raw vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg and cloves
  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender and mix until smooth. Serve immediately.

5. Turkey or Chicken Roll Ups
This is a very quick breakfast idea that tastes amazing. It’s filled with protein, good fats and wholesome fiber. Best of all you can make this in 5 minutes or less, throw them into a ziplock bag and eat them on-the-go!

Turkey or Chicken Roll Ups

  • 6 slices Applegate turkey or chicken
  • 3 Tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 apple thinly sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon raisins
  • a handful of baby spinach leaves
  1. Spread some of the almond butter down the center of each turkey or ham slice. Throw in the spinach. Line with a few slices of apple and a sprinkle of raisins. Roll up and enjoy.

Don’t forget that breakfast is the first most important meal of the day. Now you have 5 wholesome, quick recipes to fuel your mornings and keep you on track for healthy eating all day long. Start your day right and the rest of the day will follow suit.

TOO MUCH of a good thing!

Too Much of a Good Thing

Including wholesome, lean snacks into your diet can really take your metabolism to the next level…but don’t get carried away. The phrase ‘too much of a good thing’ applies here.

Adults who eat 4 or more snacks per day end up consuming almost 50% more total calories than other adults.

In order to avoid over-snacking, space your meals and snacks by 3 hours and keep snacks around 150 calories.

The SKINNY on snacking!

Do you snack right? Or is your snacking adding unwanted pounds?

You’ve heard that snacking is good for your metabolism. It’s something that we read about and hear fitness experts encourage the public to do.

We all want to be fit, lean, and healthy so we snack away.

In fact, recent surveys report that 65% of adults eat two snacks each day. If these were wholesome snacks then logic would dictate that 65% of adults should be lean and healthy.

If only all snacking was good for you!

The unfortunate truth is that most snacking will only add pounds and inches to your waistline. Snacking on all the wrong things can lead to a very frustrating weight gain cycle.

Here are the 2 Skinny Snacking Rules that you need to snack smart, to rev up your metabolism, and to get lean fast:

Skinny Snacking Rule #1: Avoid snacks that are high in carbohydrates and simple sugars.

Most simple, quick snack foods are filled with grains, refined sugars, and simple carbohydrates. These are packaged goods, crackers, chips, and granola bars. Quick and crunchy snacks like these will quickly add inches where you only want to lose them.

Your smart snack should be very low in carbohydrates, simple sugars, and grains.

Skinny Snacking Rule #2: Eat snacks that are high in protein and healthy fiber.

This may sound difficult, but it’s really not. Once you get into the habit of eating protein and fiber for your snacks it will become second nature.

Here are some awesomely fit snack ideas: homemade veggie meatballs, albacore tuna with apple slices, chicken salad, Sprouted Almond Butter and Apple Wraps (see recipe below), hard-boiled eggs, egg muffins, or salad with a handful of roasted chicken or turkey on it.

If you must have your baked goods, then seek out recipes that are made with almond flour or coconut flour, which is higher in protein and lower in carbohydrates and simple sugars.

Cutting out bad snacking (those carbohydrate and sugar-filled snacks) will change your body quickly. This change, along with replacing sugar-filled beverages with water, is the number one way that you can immediately begin to lose inches and get lean.

Once you’ve gotten into the habit of smart snacking all that’s left is to begin a consistent, challenging exercise program that will get you burning calories, building muscle, and taking your metabolism to the next level. I’m here to help you do just that.

I could talk about the benefits of exercise until I am blue in the face, but you and I know that it really comes down to a feeling. The amazing way that you feel when you’re fit.
