My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Preparing for change is never easy.  Change is scary. Change is hard. But change is inevitable if you want to grow into the person you’re meant to be.  We must embrace change and make the most of life brings our way.  Time to make a change by putting your health and wellness first.  Lets go!

Devotional, Chapter 2:

For one person, it’s insecurity that keeps them all bottled up inside. For another person, it’s always trying to win other people’s approval, and then being devastated when that doesn’t happen. For other people I know, someone has hurt them deeply in the past, and the resentment and bitterness are killing them, yet forgiveness seems beyond them. I’ve found that the only way out of whatever it is that has me trapped and locked up inside is to face it, go through it, and to do it powered by the truth. The truth, we’re told, will set us free. I’ve found that when I’ve gone through the pain of facing the truth and change, it brought me freedom and healing and helped me move on to a new level.

Weight is OVER Challenge Week 2

Ingredients
  •  15 oz can black beans
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/3 cup cooked corn
  • 2 green onions
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup wheat germ (or instant oatmeal if you have an allergy)
  • Lettuce or spinach
  • 1/2 small avocado
  • 1/4 cup pico de gallo
Steps

Mash black beans in a bowl using a mallet or place them in a food processor.

In a large bowl, add in your ingredients and seasonings. Mix very well.

Form patties using your hands. If the patties are too loose, then add extra wheat germ.

If you are using an outside BBQ grill, then lightly spray the grill with coconut oil.

If you are cooking in a skillet, lightly spray a nonstick skillet with coconut oil.

Cook the burgers for 15 minutes, no need to flip them.

Top burgers with spinach/lettuce, sliced avocado, and pico de gallo.

Enjoy with whole wheat hamburger buns or lettuce wraps for a lower carb option.
