Fit Meals Monday- No I’m Not A Vegetarian Yet Edition

Hi Fit Moms! First, I want to remind you that we have a giveaway going on right now.  If your kids like Thomas the Train, check it out.  This Trackmaster has a $75 retail value.  Click here to try and win!

Now to my favorite part, the food! This week we are doing a lot more vegetarian meals.  No I am not becoming a vegetarian, or a vegan, nor are we going to eat all raw.  I’ve just had a taste lately for veggies.  And I’ve watched some films over the last year that make me think that more veggies and much less meat is the best way to go.

One of the films that I highly recommend that you watch is called Food Inc.  If you have Netflix you can watch it instantly!  Here’s a link to a short video that talks about the movie.  Another movie that I saw recently was called Forks Over Knives.  It’s another great one that’s making me re-think the amount of meat my family consumes.  Here’s a link to a post I wrote that has the video trailer of the movie in it.

I don’t want to have a meat debate here, but I do know one thing, our S.A.D diet in America (Standard American Diet)  has been slowly killing us.  I believe it’s time for ALL of us Fit Moms to rethink what we are putting into our bodies, and our kids bodies.  Check out those films on Netflix or get the dvd’s and let me know what you think.

Speaking of eating more veggies.  This week I’ll be trying some new recipes.  Eggplant Parmesan in the slow cooker for one!  I found a blog called “A Busy Moms Slow Cooker Adventures” and found an eggplant parmesan recipe that sounds good and easy.  She has a Slow Cooking Through The Holidays theme going on right now, which I think is EXCELLENT!  A great way to not stress out.  Just make sure you check the ingredients and always think about how you can make things more healthy if they aren’t already.  Her traditional Turkey Breast in the slow cooker looks GREAT!  Check out the site if you need great slow cooking ideas to help you de-stress.  :)

Fit Meals Monday

Good Day Fit Moms!

I hope you had a great weekend, and are ready for a fabulous week!  I am.

My mind has been on overdrive thinking of ways to make Fit Moms Fit Kids Club better for you.  I’ve also been thinking of things I can do to improve my personal health and fitness.  A lot of you think I have it all together, but the truth is I have a LONG long way to go!  That’s the whole reason I started this blog, to learn about health and fitness myself, and help to teach you, with the help of my knowledgeable buddies along the way.

I’m getting excited for the fitness challenges we will begin in 2012, the webinars, more interviews, more cooking shows from myself and the kids cooking show.  We are going to have more contests, giveaways, and content to keep you motivated and give you some accountability as well.  I JUST CAN’T WAIT! :)

Until then, we’ll continue to plug away and today I’ll share with you as I always do, my family’s weekly meal plan.  Don’t worry if you aren’t reading this until Wednesday, just make out a shopping list, you can use our meal plan anytime!  You can even pick out a meal or two and try them with your family.

How did I come up with this week’s meal plan?  I looked in the sale paper, starting with what’s on sale that’s organic.  Then I check for other sale items at Sprouts Farmer’s Market.  Finally, I search the web for yummy healthy recipes with ingredients from my list and create my healthy inspired menu.

What’s On My Menu?

Meatless Monday- Quinoa Vegetarian Taco Salad

Tuesday- Zucchini Casserole Red Pepper Aoili

Wednesday- Dhat Island Restaurant!!!! I can’t wait!  This is my favorite restaurant ever! It’s my sister-in-law’s.  If you ever stop by check out the kids menu, they have a Victoria and Mya (my kids) favorite meals on the kids menu named after them.  :)  Don’t just take my word for it being good… they were the top ranked restaurant in the Inland Empire, in Ca!  It’s located in Redlands.  Enjoy!

Thursday- Broccoli Casserole (putting much less cheese in this though and I may add chicken)

Friday- Going to Six Flags Magic Mountain in the day for the holiday, and kids pizza party banquet for my sons flag football team.

Saturday- Healthy fish Tacos with homemade guacamole and homemade tortilla chips (I’ll share my from scratch guacamole recipe one day)

Sunday- Celebrating my little girls 6th Birthday…. Tea party at American Girl.  :)

Happy Halloween- Fit Meals Monday


2 Cute Black Cats

I wish I could tell you all that we will be sugar free today.  And, that I will eat perfectly healthy food all day.  Sorry, I can’t say that.  I don’t believe in deprivation, I believe in moderation.  On holidays I like to eat some yummy treats, and on Halloween I will definitely enjoy some. But, you better believe that I have a plan to eat super healthy and exercise the rest of the week.  I’m sorry I didn’t share my new fall fitness plan with you last week.  It’ll go up this week instead.

For those of you who are thinking, but Annett this is a fitness blog, how can you eat those yummy sweet treats?  Well I won’t eat a ton of them, but I will eat some of my favorites.  Here’s a link that gives you ideas of how to get rid of most of your Halloween candy so that you, and your kids won’t eat it all. It’s a MUST read. :)

For those of you who are new to the blog, welcome!  On Monday’s here we have what’s called Fit Meals Monday, which is our family’s meal plan for the week.  Feel free to use it, most of the meals have links to the recipes.  This week since we are trying to eat well to get rid of the Halloween junk, we are going to go delicious Vegetarian.  Enjoy!

What’s On Our Menu?

Monday– Halloween…. I’m not sure.  We may have a block party, we may have a private party?  Who knows. Most likely I’ll make my famous chili, it’s a tradition.  This is NOT healthy at all, I make it once a year.  It’s a multi-bean chili with turkey, chorizo, and bacon.  Once a year people, once a year.  :)

Tuesday– Halloween Detox begins! Tomato Basil Soup and Weight Watchers grilled apple cheese sandwiches

WednesdayMartha Stewart’s Big Batch Vegetable Soup

ThursdaySlow Stewed Cabbage with Vegan Sausage

FridayBlack Bean Burritos Stuffed with Veggies

Saturday– Leftover Buffet

SundayClean Eggplant Parmesan

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

If you’ve been following the blog lately you know that I LOVE all things PUMPKIN!  I’m so excited it’s fall I don’t know what to do.  Pumpkin Spice Latte’s from Starbucks, homemade pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes, and more, oh my!

Since I’m going Pumpkin crazy over here, I thought I cannot be alone.  So, for you fellow pumpkin lovers the next few weeks are for you.   I’ll be posting a few of my favorite pumpkin recipes.  Make sure you come back, or better yet subscribe on the right sidebar so that you won’t miss them!

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

3 cups uncooked old fashioned oats (not quick oats)

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon pumpkin pie seasoning blend (if you don’t have any use cinnamon)

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup low fat milk (you can probably substitute soy or other alternatives)

3/4 cup pumpkin puree

1 tablespoon coconut oil, grapeseed oil, or melted butter

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

4 egg whites (or 2 whole eggs)

Optional: you can also add diced apples, cranberries,

walnuts, and flax seeds to boost nutritional value)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl stir together oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.  Mix in vanilla, milk, oil or butter, applesauce, eggs, and pumpkin puree.  Stir until well combined.  Pour your fruit of choice onto the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.  Spread oatmeal mixture over the fruit.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.
