#Bedtime #snack: I’ll admit that I am not always positive. I’ve got this “hater” called “my mind” and he can be pretty annoying. Despite the positive things that happen in my life, he always seems to find something negative to say. Does your mind ever play tricks on you? (traduccion abajo)
Haters say things like: “You don’t have what it takes.” “That fitness goal is impossible.” “You’ll never get that career.”
Recently, I was reminded of something my mother taught me – “you have to speak well of yourself so that you can begin to believe it FOR yourself.”
At times you will doubt. But, I am convinced that when you speak positively, you will begin to see hope in your situations and find strength to overcome.
So, if you’re worried about that weight, walk up to the mirror, hit a quick #BOOM flex and say, “Yo, you sexy beast!” LOL And if you cannot be positive, then just be quiet. But not for too long… How will you encourage yourself? God bless.
This delicious meal that features a tasty black bean recipe can be made even easier with the use of an instant pot or slow cooker. You will cut your prep time down if you make the beans beforehand, and they can easily be portioned out and frozen for weekly (or monthly) lunch and dinner plans. With brussel sprouts and tender scallops, this recipe is perfect for those after gym meals where you need to replenish your energy and protein without sacrificing your health goals.
Tasty black bean recipes can sometimes be hard to find but look no further. The secret is using pico de gallo, some cumin, and garlic to season it into a delightful mix. You can use dried black beans if you want to make black beans from scratch, but canned beans work too. However, dried beans may be cheaper in the long run if this is something you foresee making large amounts of at a time.
For sea scallops, make sure they are dry, firm, and smell like the sea. If they are shiny or wet, they are often old, and if they have a fishy smell, are way past their prime and you should skip. Make sure you don’t overcook the scallops when a quick sear will do. Scallops will shrink and be tough if you cook them for too long.
Depending on how you like them, you can steam or roast the brussel sprouts until they are tender and nutty. As a leafy green, brussel sprouts (which look like tiny cabbages) are an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. With these and beans at your side, it is very easy to switch up the scallops with another protein source such as beef, chicken, or fish.

Breakfast or Snack Meal Prep: Staying prepared is an important part of making sure you accomplish goals!
Move on over Paula Dean, there’s a new bad boy in town and he’s not pulling any punches when it comes to breaking out the healthy but delicious versions of your favorite southern comfort food. Southern fried green tomatoes are a staple in the lower half of our country, where a crispy crust encases juicy, meaty, and tangy green tomatoes.
Often the result of having a late bumper crop of this popular vegetable, if you find that you have a bunch of late-season unripe tomatoes that won’t make it through the first frost, this is the recipe you can wow guests with at your next dinner party. Not only does it reduce food waste, but I’m also very excited to show you all a version that keeps special diets such as keto, paleo, and gluten-free.
Before we dive in, here is some advice on making the best fried green tomatoes recipe. Make sure you choose firm green tomatoes since if they’re soft, it more than likely means they have started to go bad. Choose a large shallow bowl so that it’s easy to toss the tomatoes in the breading and make sure you lay them out on some paper towels after you fry them so they stay crispy and don’t become too soggy with grease. With these tips in mind, let’s dive in!
Instead of bread crumbs or corn meal, Almond flour is a versatile gluten-free and grain-free breading that gives just the right amount of crisp we’re looking for. While you can mix any seasoning of your choice into the flour, in this recipe I used garlic powder, sea salt, cumin, and ground black pepper. Feel free to add smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, onion powder, Cajun or Italian seasonings. Even parmesan cheese would be a welcome addition to the breading. While you can pan fry them until they’re crispy, you can also throw them into the air fryer if you’re trying to watch your calorie intake.
If you’re looking for what to serve with fried green tomatoes, they are fantastic as a side dish to cubed steak, kebabs, stew and gumbo, roasted chicken, some sauteed shrimp, or other fish and seafood. In fact, they even do well as a stand-alone entree. If you want something to give it an extra kick, pairing it with a tasty dipping sauce like a spicy remoulade or cool tangy Greek tzatziki could be just the thing you’re looking for. If you have any leftovers, you can make fried green tomato sandwiches too.

Perfect way to reward the body after a grueling workout
Low-carb Tip: Instead of using croutons on your salad, use air popped popcorn! It is similar nutritional benefits to brown rice and will actually help you feel full. Two brands to consider using are Skinny Pop and Fit Pop.
