Let's Get Healthy Challenge!Thursday, July 25, 2013
Today marks our first Let's Get Healthy Challenge!
We are on a mission to help others get healthy and we believe fruits and veggies are the keys to success. With that said our Weekend Challenge is to eat more fruits and veggies!
Eat at least one fruit and one veggie with each meal :) It's totally doable! Now this includes snacking, so if you're reaching for a bag of chips (which you shouldn't be doing anyway) we want you to grab an apple from the fridge as well!
We have made it simple and laid out 3 days worth of meals for you! This is just to show how simple this is to manage. You don't need to follow our 3 day meal plan, but we guarantee if you follow along, you are going to feel healthier and maybe even shed a pound or two! So are you with us????
3 DAY CHALLENGE
Pineapple & Kale Smoothie 172 calories
Mango & Avocado Chicken Salad 355 calories
Orange Chicken Citrus Salad 421 calories
Green Smoothie 175 calories
Balsamic Eggplant Caprese Stacks 256 calories
Balsamic Chicken with Strawberry Salsa 255 calories
Veggie Egg White Morning Muffins + one apple | 120 calories for 2 muffins and a piece of fruit
Spinach Strawberry Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette 345 calories
Turkey, Black Bean & Pineapple Quesadilla 312 calories
Everyday is under 1,000 calories which leaves you plenty of wiggle room for healthy snacking or even a glass of wine ;)
Remember Don't Drink Your Calories!
Make a big batch of your favorite sparkling or still fruit infused water!
Sparkling Sangria Water
Strawberry Lemon Water
This is just an example of what we do to stay in shape. Stick with our meal plan or mix it up as long as you eat your fruits and veggies.
Remember losing weight is simply a numbers game! It's calories in versus calories out. If you intake more than you burn you are going to gain weight. If you intake less than you burn you are going to lose weight. It's quite simple really. One pound of weight is right around 3,500 calories!
If you want to lose one pound every week you need to decrease you calorie count right around 500 calories per day. We like to eat around 1,200 - 1,500 calories in a day which keeps us at a steady and healthy weight. We found our weight is stable if we keep it right around there!
By including fiberous fruits and veggies into each and every meal, we are going to feel fuller longer and decrease our calorie count!
We hope you join us for this 3 DAY CHALLENGE! Let's have some fun everyone :)
Let us know how it's going, if you're feeling more refreshed and even lose a little weight along the way!
