ChristyFit in 10: Meals Made in 10 Minutes or Less! Part 2

21 Nov

With winter arriving, comfort foods also seem to pop up in our meals more often. Are you craving a delicious fried chicken sandwich or a decadent slice of pumpkin pie but don’t want to pay in extra dollars, fat and calories at that buffet or fast food restaurant? Then, check out my next ChristyFit in 10 meal. You can save time, money and pounds while enjoying a tasty lunch or dinner you can make in 10 minutes or less!

Why Choose This?

The chicken veggie patty contains loads of protein while maintaining the same great chicken patty taste. The horseradish sauce adds a spicy kick with low calories. The broccoli sprouts add a fresh and crunchy balance to the meal. Even better, according to a John Hopkins School of Medicine Research study (1997), just 1 ounce of this sprout carries more antioxidants than 3 pounds of broccoli. To satisfy your sweet tooth, my Pumpkin Pie Bread delivers, also adding protein and fiber from the Ezekial bread, loads of vitamin A with low sugar from pure pumpkin and the Truvia and Pumpkin Pie spice are 0 calorie natural sweeteners that won’t raise your blood sugar levels.

ChristyFit in 10: Meal Prep Ideas Part 1

14 Nov

Lets envision this scenario: You wake up, missing you alarm. Flustered, you scramble to get ready, grab your keys and suddenly realize you didn’t plan your meals for the day. Per usual, you admit to yourself you’ll get up earlier tomorrow and now plan on that high-fat latte at Starbucks or that mayo-laden chicken sandwich at the nearest fast-food restaurant.

Now let’s mark today as a new scenario. You take a deep breath, set your keys down, and give yourself 10 minutes to make 2 quick meals, which will save your bank account and your waistline. You can enjoy that fast food on another day.

ChristyFit Meal Ideas Part 1:

Spinach Egg Omelette with a side of Cinnamon Raisin Ezekial Bread topped with Neufchâtel cheese.

-2 eggs cooked over-easy mixed with 1 cup cooked spinach leaves topped with dashes of pepper.

-1 slice of Cinnamon Raisin Ezekial Bread topped with 1/2 TBSP Neufchâtel cheese.

Why Choose This:

The eggs provide protein while the egg yolks provide additional protein, vitamins and healthy fat. The spinach provides fiber and vitamins and its water-base will fill you up and add extra water to your day. The Ezekial bread is hearty, flavorful and provides protein and fiber. The Neufchâtel cheese is decadent and has less fat and calories than regular or low-fat traditional cream cheese.

Grilled Open-Face Veggie Burger on Ezekial Muffin topped with Bean Sprouts, Cherry Tomatoes, Turmeric, Pepper and Dijon Mustard.

-1 Boca Grilled Veggie Patty topped with dashes of turmeric, pepper and mustard

-1/2 Ekekial English Muffin (you may add 1 tsp of organic butter to taste)

-1 cup Bean Sprouts

-4 cherry tomatoes

Why Choose This:

The veggie burger provides a great source of protein. The Ezekial muffin balances out the protein with healthy carbohydrates and energy. The turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and also provides a spicy kick along with the pepper and mustard. The bean sprouts provides a crunchy taste to balance out the soft taste of burger and also provides nourishing vitamins and fiber to keep you satiated along with the juicy tomatoes with healthy lycopene.
