5 Ways to Motivate Your Husband o Boyfriend

A common question from women is “how can I encourage my husband or boyfriend to eat healthy and exercise?” It’s difficult to answer w/o knowing him so here are 5 suggestions from conversations & personal experience. Fellas, feel free to chime in here. And of course, women, I appreciate your ideas & thoughts. (traduccion abajo)

  1. Prepare weekly meals for him and then with him. Show how easy meal prep is.
  2. Set a fitness goal to accomplish together. Work towards it!
  3. Stroke that ego and celebrate incremental progress. Compliments help! Ladies, exercising can boost our libido so, that PLUS compliments = TOTAL WIN. OooRah!
  4. Be positive when mistakes are made. Take time to understand why he made a mistake – if you solve that problem, you could solve more than you know.
  5. Avoid comparing your man to other men that are fit. I’ve always seen this lead to a disaster.

Bison Stuffed Bell Peppers

Easy, delicious meal you can prep for the week or make for dinner.  I added black beans as my source of carbs, which is entirely optional.  

I freeze the meals and defrost them in the refrigerator the night before I am going to eat them.  ALWAYS adjust portions to meet YOUR macros and calories.

My Body is my Valentine

“Like” if you realize that NO one can ever love and care for you like YOU.

What are you going to do today to show your body how much you care? Me? I’m going to treat this like any other day and eat fresh veggies & fruits with every meal and squeeze in some light exercise with cardio.

Today, I am reminded of one of my favorite scriptures, 3 John 1:2, that says “I pray that you may prosper in every way and be in good health physically just as you are spiritually.”

Share and #REPOST what you are going to do today to show love to yourself (and others).

Sweet & Spicy Steak And Chickpea Salad

While we’re familiar with Mediterranean chickpea salad recipes, full of lemon juice, fresh herbs, olive, oil, and red onion, there’s another contender in the bean salads world that I am personally in love with. I would like to introduce you to my sweet and spicy steak and chickpea salad recipe. Chickpea salads are always on my list of favorite salad recipes to showcase since they are full of fiber and protein and so versatile that it can easily be dressed up in so many different ways. This salad is so good that you won’t even need any salad dressing. Just a sprinkling of kosher salt, if any, and it’s ready to go. 

This sweet and spicy simple chickpea salad recipe features ginger and red pepper and orange cranberries for some sweet heat. Tender and juicy steak make this a protein-packed power lunch, and the spinach gives a healthy serving of dark leafy greens. You can use canned chickpeas, also sometimes known as garbanzo beans, or you can use dry chickpeas. However, if you use the dry version, you’ll have to cook it beforehand but a slow cooker or instant pot can cut your cooking time down. The only downside is that this easy weeknight dish doesn’t keep very well, so you should eat it soon after making it. Some might add some feta cheese to it for another boost of protein.

Eating for your health and fitness goals should not be a battle! If you are looking for more health-conscious recipes, take a look at my other posts for creative meal ideas.
