Hello everyone, this week I want to share a spice recipe for taco seasoning. The prepackaged stuff can be packed with salt. With this recipe you can have full control over how much salt is in your spice mixture.

Here’s what you’ll need:
-cumin 2tbsp
-paprika 1.5 tbsp
-garlic powder 1tsp
-dried oregano ½ tsp
-pepper ½ tsp
-cayenne pepper ¼ tsp

This amount will work for about a pound of ground chicken, turkey or lean beef. The original recipe calls for salt, but I didn’t add it. I decided to add salt to taste each time I make it depending on what other foods I’m eating this with.

I put the spices in a small mason jar and doubled the recipe so I would have enough for two uses. I put the lid on and shook until mixed thoroughly.

The only issue with using this mixture instead of a pre packaged taco seasoning, is that there is no thickening agent. There’s always the option of using corn starch, one tablespoon only adds about 30 calories.

Stay tuned next week to see what I use as my thickening agent and how I can use this recipe to make one the most tastiest breakfast meals yet!

Back to Basics: Why you NEED a Coach

Not a usual post for me, but one I need to share. Mid-August 2019, I approached our coach, Connor to help me with programming. I have very specific goals and he has an extensive background in powerlifting. I need to get stronger for a certification in 2020. There are specific lifts at specific weights: squats, deadlifts, bench press, overhead barbell press. Some are for strength; some are for technique. Ten weeks ago, I was NOWHERE near where I need to be. Today, because I have a coach who specializes in these lifts, I meet the certification standards for ALL lifts, except for one. Connor works around my schedule, programs safely for my injuries and progresses me at a pace that’s appropriate for me. That’s what you need when you have specific goals.
If you’re trying to do this weightlifting thing on your own, or lose weight on your own, I applaud you. It might take three times as long to get there, or you may never get there. But when you hire a coach who has the education to help you, it’s a different game. There’s a specific plan based on YOU and YOUR goals. I don’t know about you, but who has time to waste “trying” different things. I’ve been in this industry longer than Connor has been alive, but he has a skill I don’t have, so I asked for help.

Stop wasting your time on silly fitness crazes. They may be fun, but are they effective? Identify your goals and hire a coach to get you there. Don’t know your goals? That’s a different blog post for a different time.

Until Saturday, make good choices.
Rachael

This is more than just a core exercise!

While the Sled Bear Crawl is a great anterior core drill, it’s also a great drill for your shoulders!

It works your serratus anterior, which helps drive outward rotation of your shoulder blades. (The muscle that helps you get your hands over your head)

So next time you do it remember it’s a multi-purpose exercise that also really gets your heart rate up!!

Hello everyone, this week I’ve got a breakfast recipe that takes less than 5 minutes, Breakfast Burrito Bowls! I’m giving this one a 7/10.

What makes this recipe great? It’s fast, easy and customizable.

What makes this recipe just ok? Eggs cooked in the microwave just aren't as good as stovetop, but the idea behind this one is that it can be made and eaten quickly.

All you’ll need is one flour tortilla, some eggs and toppings of your choice.

Here’s how I made it:

1.First, I scrambled two whole eggs and two egg whites in a bowl.

2.I then lined a seperate bowl with a flour tortilla and poured the eggs into it.

3.Next I microwaved it for 45 seconds, stirred the eggs and microwaved for an additional 45 seconds.

4. I topped my breakfast burrito bowl with 14g of cheddar cheese and some salsa.

The wonderful thing about this recipe is that you can add whatever your want. You could easily add meat to this for more protein.

See the pictures below for nutrition info for how I made it.
