Baby Alessi due December 28th!!


THANK YOU. This issue is finally really getting some attention. So many women’s and fitness magazines tell us that a calorie is a calorie, and eating 1,500 calories worth of low-fat cookies all day is the same as eating 1,500 calories of fruit, vegetables, dairy, and whole grains. It’s simply not! Check this out, and more importantly, EAT REAL FOOD and products only made from real food.

Spinach Artichoke Quinoa Casserole

I made this recipe for ladies game night last weekend and it was amazing! It really does taste just like spinach artichoke dip (I served it with crostini), without the guilt. I used a little extra cheese to make it more a dip than a casserole, but it still wasn’t too heavy because it uses Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese, and the quinoa cuts through the richness. So good!

Burrito without the burrito

I love my bowl from Chipotle! You save so many empty calories by skipping the tortilla. I used to eat my burrito thinking those “bowl people” were crazy. But I finally tried it and I’ll never go back. Brown rice, black beans, sofritas, grilled veggies, corn salsa=heaven!

Today’s workout was “Annie”.  50, 40, 30 20 & 10 double unders and sit ups.  My time 7:14 and my abs feel as if they have been ripped in half.  But on the upside, I did beat my husband’s PR by 15 seconds.  I count that as a win 🙂
