MEXICAN LASAGNA

HEAVEN in my mouth right here!! I tried this recipe a few months ago and can’t get enough of it!! We are a family that loves mexican food! We used to go out and eat it at least once a week… then we started really watching our foods and I started making clean eating versions of our favorite ‘go out to eat’ meals! This one is top notch! Try it now and you’ll be happy you did!!

MEXICAN LASAGNA
Ingredients:

  • 1lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese 
  • 1 cup of cottage cheese
  • 1 cup of clean salsa
  • 1/2 cup of black beans
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 4 low carb whole wheat tortillas, cut into strips 
  1. Preheat over to 400 degrees.
  2. In a skillet pan sprayed with nonstick spray, cook the ground turkey and onion until brown.  Once cooked turn to low and add salsa, black beans and taco seasoning and mix together.  Set aside
  3. In a bowl, combine 3/4 cup of the cheddar cheese and the cup of cottage cheese.
  4. In a baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray, line the pan with 1/2 of the tortilla strips.  Scoop 1/2 of the meat mixture on top and spread out, covering the tortillas.  Then add 1/2 of the cheese mix on top of the meat and spread.  Repeat the layers again with remaining strips, meat, and cottage cheese.  Top with remaining cheese.
  5. Cover and bake for 40 minutes and enjoy!  Makes 4 servings at 350 calories each.

I almost always double it so we have lots of leftovers and sometimes freeze it too! Easy recipe and everyone will love it!!

CROCKPOT CHICKEN TACOS


1 lb. chicken breasts
1 can organic black beans
1/2 tub fresh salsa 
1 packet taco seasoning
1/3 cup water
cream cheese

Put everything in the crockpot and cook on low 5-6 hours or high 3-4 hours. Shred chicken before serving.

20 minutes before serving add 1/3 brick of cream cheese and stir in until melted.

Ginger Soy Flank Steak

This steak has loads of extra flavor, without much fat and just a little sugar added. So splurge on some steak once in a while. Just make sure to keep your portion size small, and add some vegetables and brown rice on the side. It’s such a yummy meal with tons of protein! We don’t eat steak that often, but when we do we do it right! This is a super yummy meal that we all enjoy! We almost always serve it with brown rice or quinoa and veggies! Kinda like a stir fry with the ginger/soy sauce! Hope you enjoy!

Ginger Soy Flank Steak
2 Tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
1 Tbsp. garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. red chili flakes
Lime juice from one lime
1 1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar
4 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
1 (1-1/2 pound) flank steak or tenderized round steak

In a small bowl, combine ginger, garlic, chili flakes, lime juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, and sesame seed oil. Pour mixture over steak and let marinate for 1 hour. Either grill, broil, or pan fry steak over high heat to medium rare or until the internal temperature reaches desired temperature on your meat thermometer (see below). NOTE: This steak is best cooked rare to medium rare.
Rare – 120°F
Medium Rare – 125°F
Medium – 130°F

Remove from heat and let steak rest 5 minutes before slicing. With a sharp knife, slice steak thinly against (diagonal) the grain. Place on a platter or individual dinner plates. Makes 6 servings.

Join Me

Have you been wanting to make a change in your life, but just don’t know where to start? Or even how to start? Do you love to help others? Would you love to get paid to be fit and healthy? Would you love to know that your income is a direct reflection of how many lives you are changing? 

Maybe you’re a stay at home momma looking for a little ‘more?’ Maybe you are a momma who is working full time outside of the home and you just want to be at home with your babes! Maybe you don’t have kids but you are dreading going out in the bitter cold tomorrow morning to drive to a job that you don’t really love. Maybe you are a man who just wants to provide more for your family.. Maybe you really just want an extra $100-$200 a week as play money or to buy that cool car you’ve been wanting!!

Whatever your reason, whatever your WHY.. consider this…

Making your own schedule- literally.
Being able to get your kids off and on the bus.
Making an extra $500-$1000 a week in your first six months.
Being your own boss.
Getting paid to workout.
Getting incentives each month.
Going on an all expense paid trip to Cancun next year.
And the list goes on….

I had been a stay at home mom for 5 years when I was given this amazing opportunity. I always knew that I wanted to be at home with my kids, but as they get older they really become more and more ‘self sufficient’ and that was the point that I started wondering what I was going to do. I was feeling lost and I really needed something for ME! I had gone through a few really ‘tough spots’ where I was questioning a lot in my life. I was back and forth about getting a job, but I also knew that I didn’t want to leave my ‘day job!’ ha!! My kids are not only my life, but they are my priority. So, it was during this time of reevaluation and lots of prayer when Beachbody coaching was brought up by a friend. — I had already done beachbody programs for 6 years!! And I never knew anything about actually being a coach for the company!!!!! So, here I am now… IN LOVE WITH MY WORLD. Able to stay at home with my precious little gems AND getting to help people change their lives–WHICH is MY CALLING! ALL the struggle… The pain, fear, and tough times were leading me to my destiny ALL ALONG!!!
My point is… In the THICK of it… Your life may seem out of control… it may feel like everything is going wrong… You might be struggling… Financially, spiritually, emotionally, and physically… But THE TRUTH IS… it may just be the thing needed to create your AMAZING future!!! Stay strong… Have faith! Everything is going to turn out just how God intends it to!

This is literally a dream job. A dream come true when I felt like I was never going to ‘figure it all out.’ A job that allows me to do what I love also while being present in my kids’ lives and staying at home where I feel I belong to raise my kids and be here for my husband. A job where I get bonuses, all expense paid trips, rewards each month and the satisfaction and JOY of knowing that I am helping people change their LIVES! This is HUGE for me! This is my dreams becoming reality!

Are you ready to kick off a new season of your life? 

Enrolling now: 5 spots available for my February 3rd Coach Basics Program. Learn the ropes and start your new career off right. You will be trained by ME and we will get you off the ground running!
