Be Positive or Be Silent

#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.

 

Dixie Cup Fruit Popsicles

This dixie cup fruit popsicle recipe is sweet, juicy, and packs all the fun of summer into fruit ice pops. You can easily use all your favorite fruits, and create flavor combinations like orange mango. Add dollops of vanilla greek yogurt if you want it to be creamy as well. This is the height of easy crafting that the whole family can enjoy together. Instead of using popsicle molds, you use dixie cups to make cute small portioned homemade fruit ice pops that can easily be removed from the cups by running them under warm water.

 

This refreshing treat doesn’t have to be just limited to the fruits I provided here. My popsicle recipe is very adaptable to all sorts of fruits and creations. Depending on your popsicle mixture, the time it takes for the fruit popsicle to fully freeze may differ, but you can’t go wrong with freezing overnight. The orange slice provides a fun and cute “base” that prevents it from melting down your hands if you’re a little slow to eat. I love how it is the perfect mixture of sweet and tart, but doesn’t contain so much sugar or fruit juice that it makes it unhealthy and carb loaded. The juicy berries are full of antioxidants and vitamins and minerals, making this kid friendly treat good to eat and good for us. A better dessert alternative for those hot summer days.

Smoked Salmon Salad Wraps

10-minute #snack meal: cucumber, smoked salmon, avocado & bell pepper salad wraps. Ridiculously easy meal to prep and for a quick energy pick-up! Boom.

This is one of my favorite treat meals. It is easy to make, and you can customize the recipe by adding other raw vegetables to your liking or in season. You can even replace salmon with turkey in case you are not a big fan of seafood.

All you need for this really simple recipe is 4 ingredients. Smoked salmon, cucumber, bell pepper and avocado. Remember, salmon is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, the “good” fat that your body needs to function and exercise.

Start by cutting half of the cucumber into thin slices with a mandolin. Then slice veggies into thin strips and build bite-sized wraps. Use cucumber as a base, add smoked salmon and veggies, and roll it up.

Fresh and crunchy salmon salad is perfect for a spring lunch or quick low carb dinner.

I’m thrilled at how good this smoked salmon salad recipe ​is! It’s simple, healthy and done in less than 10 minutes. Besides, salmon is one of the most nutritious foods. Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered essential, so you must get them from your diet because your body cannot create them. Salmon is also full of high-quality protein, another essential nutrient.

Lamb Chops & Spicy-Sweet Potato & Dried Cranberry Waffle

This easy lamb chops recipe is sweet, with just the right kick of heat. Seasoned generously with herbs and spices, it sits on top of a delicious sweet potato and cranberry waffle. If you were wondering what else you could make with that waffle iron sitting in your cabinet, give this a try. Whether it’s for Easter brunch or a fancy Mother’s Day feast, the juicy and tender lamb chops look gorgeous on top of crispy waffles that are not only paleo friendly, but protein packed to keep you on track for your health and fitness goals.   

 

Try to get grass fed and organic lamb since they have a more robust flavor and are better for your body too. While the spice mix I use here is more middle eastern, containing turmeric, cumin, garlic, red pepper, and onion powder, feel free to switch it up with whatever you have in your pantry. Lamb traditionally pairs well with dill, garlic, rosemary, and mint so if you have those on hand, a dash here and there will be very welcome. If you have a cast iron skillet, all the better to get a nice crust that seals in the moisture, or you can chuck them over some charcoal for grilled lamb chops or chops with garlic instead. If you have a rack of lamb, seasoning it and then roasting it in the oven is also a possibility, especially if you’re preparing multiple portions for lunch or dinner guests. I personally love lamb chops medium rare, but you might like them a little more or less cooked and that’s completely fine. Make sure you practice food safety when handling raw meat.   

  

What is the Secret?

The secret to keeping the waffles together are the egg whites, which will bind the grated sweet potatoes and prevent them from falling apart. To keep the waffles from getting soggy, only place the lamb chops on top of them in the last few minutes before serving. The waffles are a great way to use up the sweet potatoes if you find yourself with too many. They also freeze and reheat well, so you can make a whole stack of them, stick them in the freezer, and pop a few into the oven for a quick and easy breakfast.    

  

Just thinking about this sweet, savory, and spicy treat that gets my appetite going. If you enjoyed this herbed lamb chops and waffles recipe, shoot me a message or leave a comment below. I would love to hear all about it!

Surf and Turf Swordfish Steak Muscle Kabobs!

Surf and Turf Muscle Kabobs! Swordfish steak & flank steak with cherry tomatoes and yellow bell peppers, with a spinach & cucumber salad with sesame vinaigrette.

For this swordfish steak recipe, you’ll need just 5 ingredients! Swordfish steak, lean flank steak, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and your choice of greens for salad.

Quick, easy and delicious!

Start by getting one swordfish steak and one lean flank steak. This should be enough fish, but you can also get more if you want to prepare a larger amount of food for the whole family or if you’re expecting guests.

When I prepare a swordfish, I like to add an aromatic taste, so I also use ginger, garlic and cumin. To get started, cut the fish into pieces. You can season to taste, but keep it simple. If you want to follow my recipe, add ginger, garlic, cumin, pepper and red pepper.

Then cut yellow bell pepper into pieces and make the kabobs.

Spray a skillet with coconut oil or olive oil. Place the kabobs and cook them on both sides so that they are equally well cooked.

Make sure the swordfish steak is cooked all the way. Now you’re ready to enjoy a tasty grilled fish meal!

Remove the kabobs from the grill, serve on a plate, and voila you have a delicious meal, rich in protein!

Amaze your friends with this unusual finger food with a specific taste that is pleasing to everyone, especially if they love fish.

I tried this specialty a couple of years ago, and I have made it many times since then because I adore that it is so light and tasty and fits into my diet plan.

Granola Covered Blackberries & Dark Chocolate Recipe

High protein parfait for breakfast? It’s a great combination of fresh fruits, nonfat Greek yogurt and crunchy granola. Perfect healthy breakfast on the go.

This blackberry and strawberry parfait recipe has 3 layers, which you can assemble the way I am, or as you wish. Also, it can be assembled in any container you want. I use these glass jars because they are very practical.

Berries play a major role in this recipe, so make sure the ones you get are ripe enough, juicy and sweet.

Wash and drain the berries well. Remove the stems from strawberries, then chop them into slices or small chunks. To assemble the parfaits, layer the three components starting with adding fresh strawberries and blackberries in the bottom of parfait glasses. Then add greek yogurt and finally granola. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top if you like.

If you want to boost a level of protein, you can add a little bit of collagen or flavored protein powder of your choice to the greek yogurt.

Chill parfaits for 2 hours in the fridge before serving, and they are ready for sweet enjoyment. It tastes as good as they look, trust me!

This parfaits recipe is very customizable, so you can add fruits or other ingredients of your choice. You can add fresh raspberries, peaches, blueberries, or bananas. As long as the fruit is fresh, the dessert will be great. Also, try to make your own homemade granola and use it in this combination for breakfast.

Parfait doesn’t have to be just breakfast, you can also use this recipe for a healthy dessert. Many desserts require baking in the oven, but this is a great, very easy recipe that does not require much time to make.

It is also a great dessert that you can make for someone, if you do not have a lot of skills for making desserts that are complicated.

BBQ Turkey & Sweet Potato Sliders

These sweet potato sliders with lean ground turkey are a recipe that is as nutritious as tasty!

The following ingredients will be enough to make four sliders. Get 6oz of lean ground meat of your choice, 150g of sweet potatoes, arugula and spinach, BBQ sauce, and spices.

Simply slice sweet potatoes into thick pieces to make the buns. Place them on a baking sheet and bake the potato slices in the oven at 405F. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the buns are fully cooked and at the right firmness level.

Some people prefer them soft, but I prefer the firmer version for this recipe. Be sure to let them cool before you assemble the burger and start eating so you don’t get burnt.

Season the lean ground turkey and make mini patties with your hands. Cook the meat in the skillet on medium heat and leave them to cool down for a couple of minutes.

Now, we will assemble these patties. On one of the sweet potato slices, add arugula and spinach, turkey pattie, and a tablespoon of BBQ sauce. Top it with the second sweet potato slice. Repeat the process for your remaining sliders. Serve your sliders and enjoy! Just that easy!

Delicious bbq turkey sliders are one of my favorite treats, and when you try them you will know why.
