  1. Healthy Sloppy Joe’s!

    August 27, 2012 by Kristin

    Ingredients
    1 1/2 pounds ground turkey meat
    1 onion, chopped
    1 red bell pepper, chopped
    1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
    1 cup water (or if you don’t have tomato paste, substitute the water and tomato paste with about 1 1/2 cups of tomato sauce
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

    Directions
    In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute the ground turkey for 5 minutes. Add the onion and red bell pepper; saute for 5 more minutes, or until onion is tender. Drain the meat.
    Mix in tomato paste and water, stirring until paste is dissolved. Stir in garlic, chili powder, paprika, cumin, vinegar, brown sugar, oregano, salt and pepper. Continue to heat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until mixture is thick and stewy.

    I recommend tasting your sloppy joe’s as you cook so you can make it taste just the way you like it! :)

  2. Stair master workout

    August 27, 2012 by Kristin

    I was at the gym the other day and I couldn’t bring myself to get on the treadmill.  Everyone has those days when you just feel like you can’t run another mile.  So I decided to use the stair master and do some interval training.

    This is the workout that I did:

    Stair master for 10 minutes

    • alternating every 30 second of a “work” rate and a “rest” rate

    Weight routine: (I used 15 lbs)

    • 15 push-ups
    • 15 bicep curls
    • 15 tricep kickbacks
    • 15 over head shoulder press
    • 20 LOW squats

    I repeated this 3x’s and the time honestly flew by!

  3. Great breakfast idea!

    August 27, 2012 by Kristin

    Want a filling breakfast that is under 200 calories… try a veggie omelet!

     

    • chopped pepper, onion, and tomato :I bought a “tomato trinity” (already chopped onion, pepper, and tomato) from my local grocery store. This helps to save time in the morning
    • 2 eggs, fluffed with a fork

    I used a nonstick cooking spray in a pan.  I cooked the veggies first for about 2 minutes, then I poured the egg mixture into the pan and cooked it all until the eggs were no longer runny.

    Easy, tastes good, and healthy!
