Figure Friendly Fall Favorite Recipes


School is in session. Fall is here, though where I live it does not feel like it (it was 109 degrees the other day, really).

One thing you should know about me is that I have an addiction. It comes out every fall. To what? PUMPKIN!!!

I love all things pumpkin. Pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pancakes. Pumpkin tea. Pumpkin cheesecake. Pumpkin muffins. In fact, the other day I invited a friend’s daughter to come over and we made cupcakes that tasted like a Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte! What a glorious day that was!

Since this is one of my favorite times of the year I thought I’d give you all a taste of some of my all time fall favorite blog posts from Fit Moms Fit Kids Club.

These are all recipes, because what’s better than yummy healthy comfort food?

Nothing!

 

Here are some of my favorite posts from autumns past.

 

 

I hope you try some of these! Let me know if you do.

Comment below which recipe(s) you want to try!

Spring Into Shape- Meal Plan Week 2


This meal plan is what Olympian Annett Davis will be eating during week two of the 2012 Spring Into Shape Challenge. This is NOT a diet plan.  We are not doctors and are not giving advice.  You must calculate your own calories for what your body needs.  This is not a weight loss plan.  The goal of this meal plan is healthy eating. Sure you could possibly lose weight, but that’s not our goal with this plan. You determine your portions.  Here’s a “handy portion guide” which will help you decide how much to eat.  To determine your daily caloric needs you can click here.  Everyone’s goals are different, so please do what’s right for you.

I hope you enjoyed eating from your healthy meal plan last week.  Feel free to use our free meal plan template to make your own meal plan, and put it on your fridge this week.  Remember we are planning to succeed!  If you are new this week, know that the attached meal plan is completely optional.  You can try a meal or two or none at all.  I know I get stuck in ruts sometimes, and meal plans like this help me to come up with new ideas that are tasty and sometimes adventurous for my family.

The image below of the meal plan is just an image. It does not have working links!  If you want the links to the actual recipes you must download the meal plan by clicking on the link below.

I’m Back…Fit Meals Monday


Hi Fit Moms!

I am finally back!  As some of you know I took a two week vacation from the site to get some things taken care of.  I had an unbelievable schedule.  My pro beach volleyball season is now over so that’s one big thing off of my plate.  I was traveling back and forth from the west coast to east coast weekend after weekend, spending only a few days at home with the family so I had to release something before I had a nervous breakdown. :)

Miami Volleyball Tournament Sunset

Two weeks ago I was given the opportunity to speak at our church’s young adult ministry about marriage with my husband!  The title of the talk was Covenant Keepers.   This was a great experience, we had a blast doing it together.  If you are single or married we tell some of the good, bad, and ugly times in our lives, and we share some biblical marriage tips.  So, check it out!  Let me know if you do.   Click here for the link for the video. If you want the audio version that you can download for free of course click here.    This weekend I was asked to speak at our church’s first young women’s conference for 18-30 year olds, called Arise.  I was not the main speaker, but a breakout workshop speaker.  I taught “How to Study the Bible” three times.  It was a blessing to me to be able to share what I’ve learned over the years with these eager to learn ladies.  I remember when I was in their shoes not knowing Genesis from Revelations.  I still appreciate the help of older women pouring their lives into mine, it is so important, so needed.

Last week I took the entire week off from doing any physical exercise.  I was “detoxing” from my season.  I just wanted to do absolutely nothing physically.  This week I’m going to get on track and start working out again in my “home gym” which consists of an elliptical machine, weights, strength bands, yoga mats, a machine that vibrates you while you do exercises (I forget the name),  trx bands, and videos (like P90-x and yoga videos).  This year I’m adding something new, kettle bells!!!  I’m so excited about the kettle bells.  I only have a couple but I’m hoping to get some more soon.  Any sponsors or reps out there who want me to try theirs, please contact me.  :)

What’s On Our Menu?

This week is shop from my pantry, freezer and fridge week.  My goal is to spend less than $30 on items to complete these meals, including breakfast & lunch items.  I’m making my own bread this week so I won’t need to buy any, and I already have all the supplies to make it.  I plan on having smoothies and sandwiches this week for lunch.  Breakfast will rotate between cereal, oatmeal, egg scrambled with veggies inside & toast, and pancakes with turkey bacon one day for a treat.

Meatless Monday- Black and White Vegetarian Chili  served with Cornbread

Tuesday- Chicken Veggie Wild Rice Casserole

Wednesday- Sloppy Joes with fruit salad

Thursday- Hoppin’ John’s (a black eyed peas dish)

Friday- Tilapia Corn Chowder

Saturday- Camping with Cub Scouts!

Sunday- Leftover Buffet :)

Tell us in the comments below one meal you are making this week that you are excited about!

Daddy Does It RAW: Week 2 (Including Breakfast Smoothies)


Hey now y’all,

It’s Spicy Brown (aka Annett’s husband Byron ) with week two of Daddy does it RAW.  For those of you who missed week one you can click here to read how I’m taking over the kitchen for a couple of weeks!  That’s right tell all your husbands, maybe they’d like to see if they can take the challenge (at least to cook for their family for 1 week). I double dog dare them!  They can read how I did it last year for an entire month! (Just go to Events and scroll to Daddy Does It Raw, to see what I served up last year).   I’ve included breakfast smoothies this week, as well, for all you moms on the go. Hey, I know… school has started (can I get an amen!!!)  and it’s time to start the morning shuffle, bustle, and hustle.

So try these RAW meals for energy and vibrant health. Let me know what you think.

Week 2:

Breakfast Shakes/ Smoothies:

Day 1: Daddy’s Blueberry Protein Beast

3 cups of water

2 cups of blueberries (fresh or frozen)

1/2 of pitted dates

1 vanilla bean (scrape out the inside or a splash of vanilla extract)

Blend it up (We have a blend tec blender… the thing is stinking awesome) 
We like BNS Synth-6 protein powder (tastes really good without any after taste). 
Or, if you want to keep it “high raw” like me try Lifetime Life Basic plant protein.
  I happen to like the taste.  Annett thinks it has a funky after taste.   I happen to like funky! :)

Day 2: Mango Mad Daddy Delight

3 cups of ice water

1/4 cup of almonds

1/2 of pitted dates
splash of vanilla bean extract

2 fresh (or frozen) mangos, peeled, de-seeded, and cubed
Blend it baby!

Day 3: Cocoa Daddy Cool

1/2 banana

3 or 4 strawberries (with leaves and all if you have an awesome blender like ours if not take them off)

2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tablespoon of raw peanut butter (skip this if you are allergic you can use a nut free butter)

3 cups of ice and water

handful of raw spinach (while it gives it a dark green color you can’t taste the spinach. Spinach helps fight cancer, provides fiber, anti-inflammatory, lowers blood pressure, gives you a good dose of vitamins, minerals, good for skin and brain nerve function so you can be quick like the cheetah.  Just tell your kids it’s a “Shrek Smoothie when it’s green or a “Green Lantern Smoothie.)

Day 4: Father Peachy Cream

1 cup of diced peaches

1 cup of brazil nuts (or almonds)
1/2 of pitted dates

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
