Ground Beef Quinoa Bowl

Oh you guys 😍😍😍 Dinner tonight, softball night 🙃 Needed to be Fast and made up of ONLY the complete randomness that is available in my empty pantry and fridge 😳 End of Month for me and HUGE shift in Ty’s work schedule, paired with softball games = no time for groceries or cooking 🤷🏼‍♀️ so THIS beauty was born 😍….

Ground Beef Quinoa Bowl ❤️ 

You could make it with ANYTHING you have on hand, here is the exact deliciousness I created 👌🏼 

-1 lb ground elk (any ground turkey/beef would do)

  Brown meat with my no sodium taco seasoning 

– 1 bag stir fry veggies (peas, broccoli, carrots and add a diced onion)

  Grilled in dry pan and evoo until perfect

– 1-2 sweet potatoes diced and THIS is the MOST important trick I think I learned tonight! Do you love sweet potatoes or yams? Me to 😍 but when it is hot I hate using my oven to grill them! So here’s what I did and it worked perfect 👌🏼

  • – dice 1 or 2 sweet potatoes
  • – throw in a micro safe bowl
  • – toss in 1 tbsp evoo
  • – cover
  • – micro 2 minutes
  • – stir
  • – micro 1 more minute or until softening
  • – dump them into your frying pan and add 1/2 more tbsp more evoo, dash of pink Himalayan sea salt and any other salt free seasoning you like 😉
  • – cook over medium high heat, flipping and stirring regularly, until browned and crispy 🙌🏼🙌🏼 Literally the best and fastest “grilled” sweet potatoes EVER!

– 1 cup organic quinoa

  Bring to a boil in 2 cups water and add 1 tsp “better than boullion” chicken flavor, cover and reduce to simmer for 15 minutes and fluff with fork

– diced tomato

– diced sweet baby peppers

– diced avocado

– diced red onion
Add all the toppings to a bowl and mix up, I added a little salsa too! Sooo yummy and a perfect FAST weeknight meal and you really could use whatever you have on hand 😘

Makeup Free Monday – Take that Anxiety!

**⚠️ Raw Post** Makeup free Monday! Before I embarked on this journey to self love and a healthier happier version of me YOU WOULD NOT catch me without mascara on, usually foundation and gloss too BARE MINIMUM… most days it was full face makeup from morning to night, it was so important to me to not be seen without my makeup that I would do it while driving even 😱 or before I would get out of bed when staying with friends or with house guests, before leaving the tent in the morning while camping…I didn’t want anyone to actually see ME. Now don’t get me wrong, I still LOVE makeup and using it and getting all dolled up, probably more than the next gal 😉 BUT I wasn’t using it to get “dolled up” or even to get ready for the day…I was using it as a mask, to cover years of acne, internal anxiety and depression and a whole heck of a lot of self doubt and loathing. My plan was to present a put together sunny face so people wouldn’t be tempted to look too much deeper and see all the jagged, broken, not so pretty pieces inside 💔 And it was working pretty well at keeping people at bay, even the people closest to me had no idea what I was struggling with, and for some of them this may be the first time they learn of it. But anxiety and depression had their claws in me and there were days I wouldn’t even look in mirrors, I literally would brag about being able to do my makeup without looking in a mirror but the only reason I knew how to do that was because I hated looking at myself so much that I would refuse to do it, but I wasn’t willing to sacrifice my “mask” of makeup so I learned how to do it without my reflection, because I couldn’t trust my refection, it had led me astray before and I just knew it was lying to me every time I thought I looked okay or had a semi-positive thought about myself.
There are so many reasons I thought I was broken, unworthy, “ugly” and most of them start from my earliest memories of being teased at school and have been “compound fractures” of my self esteem through years of anxiety and people pleasing… BTW if you haven’t figured it out yet, you can’t find self worth in pleasing others 😉 If someone could have shared that with me 20 years ago my journey would look a lot different. Self worth comes from exactly where it says it does, yourself! And you get there by working on YOU not by pleasing others, over achieving or “looking” put together. You get there by shining light on the broken, dark and HARD as fuck to look at crap in your baggage and calling it out and taking its power away! You get there by finding a way to love yourself in spite of and even in thanks to, your struggles and pain. You get there by recognizing you want more for yourself and being willing to work hard to get it! These are not easy things, and in some cases they feel downright impossible BUT I promise you that once you decide you are worth it, once YOU DECIDE to find a way to work towards healing your wounds, once YOU DECIDE to own all your pieces, broken or whole, YOU HAVE THE POWER TO BE YOUR TRUE SELF and that true self is beautiful with broken edges that have been soldered back together and jagged pieces that are sharp but stunning when the sunlight hits them, like a stained glass window made of a thousand tiny pieces all different shapes and sizes, imagine if you blacked out and covered half the picture, you would be depriving people of its true beauty! That is YOU, a thousand shapes and colors and sizes and when you let the light shine into all of them you are a stunning piece of art worthy of affection and love and don’t deprive the world of your unique beauty!
So today is makeup free Monday in my house and I am stepping out and sharing my bare skin, no mascara, no mask…just me because anxiety and depression are some of my jagged pieces but I’m taking back the power and shining the light on them and honestly, when I started this “weight loss journey” I never would have imagined the biggest transformation would be in my mind… I don’t hate my reflection, I actually am pretty proud of who I am and even what I look like, and those are words I NEVER thought I would speak, let alone without makeup on 😉 So don’t let the world break you down and tell you how to look and feel, own your pain, your struggles and your demons because they are part of your story, they are part of you, and you are enough, you are amazing, and you deserve your very best life…don’t waste this short time we have hiding who you are, step into the light and be unapologetically YOU, life is too short to live it trying to meet someone else’s standards. Don’t waste your precious time, spend it learning to love yourself for all that you are and go after all that you want for yourself because you can be and do anything when you are wholeheartedly yourself ❤❤❤❤

The Solution to a Healthy Lifestyle as a Diabetic…Shakeology – Is it a Miracle? 

img_228376e437a3f6994f08943f34f94e4800dcimg_2282

 

What is Shakeology’s Impact on Diabetes & Blood Sugar?!? How is it saving lives, reversing years of diabetic damage and giving people their health back?!?

Hear it from them and read on to see how:

Hear David’s Story here: How Shakeology saved my life and my marriage!

“I swear by Shakeology! It reversed 10 years of diabetic A1C levels in me in just 4 months of daily use. Can’t and won’t live without it! My endocrinologist has it written in my medical file as a requirement for me to take now, and another doctor was so impressed that she started taking it and it reversed her diabetic levels she had for 7 years.” -Gwyn M.
********************
“My mom told me again earlier today how beautiful her blood sugars are. Shakeology has helped to dramatically reduce her insulin. Sometimes she doesn’t even need her insulin. I’m glad I made my mom try Shakeology a year and a half ago.” ~Shakeology customer.
*********************
“Shakeology works, because I am a diabetic that was on 9 pills. But once I started drinking Shakeology, it changed my overall numbers in blood pressure, sugar levels, and cholesterol. To this date of 6 months of drinking Shakeology and working out – NO PILLS!!” –Sydney
******************
“I’m a 57 yr old insulin dependent diabetic, on insulin for 47 yrs. I’ve been using Shakeology daily since 4/8/10 and it’s a predictable meal, in that the carbs are exact. That has been a major benefit for me. Since then I’ve dropped 22 lbs, reduced my daily total insulin by nearly 40%, and am now off bp medication. Also, the only workout I’ve done is the one that comes w/ the drink mix… I call ’em Shake30 and Shake50 workouts. I haven’t worked out much at all the last six weeks, other than running a bit, but the weight continued to drop and it must be due to the Shakeology.” _BH
******************
“Being DIABETIC, and HAVING KIDNEY & THYROID DISEASE, I had to do something.

Thanks to Beachbody, I have lost a total of 75lbs. and now living a more fit and healthier lifestyle. I come from a family of Type 2 Diabetics and was borderline diabetic myself, and had Kidney disease, Thyroid disease and back pains. Doing Beachbody’s workout programs and drinking SHAKEOLOGY has changed all that! My thyroid results are normal!!! My doctors are AMAZED at my results!!! My lab results are ALL NORMAL now and show that I am NO LONGER DIABETIC!!! I have so much more energy, strength and stamina than I have ever had when I was in my teens and 20s. I started at 196lbs. wearing a size 16 and am currently 125lbs. wearing a size 4!!! I have never been a size 4 before in my life!!” ~Jenny, mother of 4, and works full time.
**********************
“My wife’s Type 2 Diabetes was reversed thanks to Shakeology.” – Sean K.
**********************
“My friend’s doctor (YES DOCTOR) said she should try SHAKEOLOGY and she has DIABETES! SMART DR!” -Stacie M.
**********************
“I was borderline type 2 diabetic for the past few years. I also had gestational when I was prego. (3-4yrs ago) In December (2013)I signed up for shakeo and was just hoping to lose weight. But it dropped and regulated my blood sugar within the first few weeks of using it. I am no longer get the headaches from my blood sugar rollercoastering. I no longer considered borderline. My blood sugar is normal.” -Amy S.
**********************
“My fasting number this morning was no longer in the “diabetes” range but in the “pre-diabetes” range…with NO meds! I am so amazed.” – Kristie M.
**********************
“My parents have been drinking SHAKEOLOGY for a little over a month now. My mother’s sugars are almost normal! AND she was suffering from major diabetes headaches when she ate badly and we were getting ready to increase her insulin!!! She is now coming off her meds all together and is exercising and losing weight! Dad’s sugars are now under control and he is getting ready to cut out his meds as well! Shakeology has changed the blood chemistry in my household and family for the better!” – Ilene W.
***********************
RAFAEL’S MOM: DIABETES, ANEMIA, SLEEP APNEA, OBESITY

“Without her even knowing, my mom expressed to me the compliments she was receiving ever since she started on Shakeology. To start things off, let’s start with my mom’s medical condition prior to Shakeology. My mom is Diabetic and anemic. She was placed on Thyroid medication to help her lose weight. Her insulin was prescribed to help control her sugar levels. My mom is medically disabled and has had to use wheel chairs and a cane to assist in getting around. She also has to sleep with a sleep apnea machine to help her breathe at night.

After hearing and seeing what Shakeology has done to me, my mom decided to give it a try. After having to spend hundreds of dollars on shakes and Ensure from her doctor’s office, she figured why not do Shakeology.
So, 2 months have gone by and my mom opened her third bag. She went to the local grocery store (Publix) where like always, the cashiers are so friendly and always remember their customers. My mom walks in and the cashier yells, “OMG SYLVIA, You’ve lost so much weight and you’re walking WITHOUT A CANE!! What are you doing?”

That excitement brought my mom to say SHAKEOLOGY! My son got me on it and it’s helped me so much, she said.

My mom got the lady’s email and called me about the news. Next, my mom went to her doctor’s office. All the nurses, techs, and receptionist were shocked, too. She went the other day after having a physical done.

Her doctor walked in with a confused look on her face. Looking at the chart then at my mom, the doctor couldn’t understand the rapid change. First thing out the doctor’s mouth was, “Sylvia, what are you doing different?” my mom said “Shakeology why?” The doctor replied, “Well, don’t ever stop it!”

The doctor then explained to my mom that she no longer needed her insulin, her levels were normal. Next the doctor lowered her triglyceride medication. Next the doctor was happy to tell her that she was now no longer anemic. Within 2 months, my mom lost 32 pounds, that’s an average of 16 pounds a month. Mind you, my mother is disabled so she CANNOT EXERCISE. This has all taken place simply by drinking Shakeology. Also with the weight loss, my mom hasn’t needed to use her cane to walk or sleep apnea machine when sleeping.

This is a true testimonial that Shakeology is the healthiest meal of the day.”
