I have been reading through emails tonight. The response to our 21 day results has been amazing, so if I haven't responded I promise I am getting back to you.

So many people saying they have been holding themselves back. The excuses I hear for people not starting their journey:

I am afraid of failing
I have never been successful before
It's too expensive
I don't have energy

Just to name a few.
Let me just make something clear. The only way you fail is if you don't try. Have you ever really tried? With me? With my team? And don't you even tell me it is too expensive. I see you buying a bag of chips for $4 and a Starbucks for $5 and a Jamba Juice for $6.... You just CHOOSE to put the wrong things in your body.

Ever crave a banana after you eat one? No. because you are giving your body nutrients. Give your body a bag of chips and it wants another bag of chips... because it is craving nutrients. Feed the body nutrients and KILL cravings forever!

It is a choice. It saves me hundreds of dollars a month. I was blessed through my cancer battle to have the opportunity to get educated in nutrition and what my body needs to survive and keep cancer away. It is nearly impossible to do nowdays, unless you are super diligent (can you eat 5 spinach salads a day? I can't!) to get your nutrients. You NEED to supplement your diet unless again... like I said... you are super diligent. I consider myself pretty strict and committed and I was nowhere close to my nutritional needs. So no.. it is NOT expensive. It is less than a latte a day and has your entire nutritional needs and then some.

Last but not least... you don't have energy because you don't have proper nutrition.

There... I just answered the top 4 objections I get from people who come to me to start their health journey, but fail to take the leap to commit.

YOU are the only thing standing in your way. Start being your own advocate rather than the person keeping you in chains.

It's time to get out of your way... and I am here to help!

Sorry one more...
You all see me sweat with her every day so I couldn't let this day go by without sharing my partner in sweat's victories too!
The greatest gift this job has given me is the ability to change the lives of those I love... when they are ready.
My daughter Taylor Ann has always been beautiful on the inside and out, but to see her radiate such confidence and joy is the GREATEST GIFT EVER.
So ‪#‎Thankful‬ I took a shot at coaching. THIS is what I get to do every day!! What a blessing!
LOVE YOU TAYLOR!!!! @harmony527 I am SO SO So proud of you!!!

I think butter lettuce leaves are the bomb.com they are soft and act like a tortilla. Perfect for my goals! This is a yummy dish that can be served as a starter, or the main attraction. Enjoy!

12 Butter lettuce leaves
3 Tbsp hoisin sauce

The main ingredients in this amazing caramel goodness: Zucchini, Cashews, and Coconut Milk. That makes these treats completely fine to eat for breakfast, or snacks, or dessert. You choose. It replaces yucky processed, high in sugar desserts that I used to eat. In fact one of my most popular recipes ever on this blog is my caramel cheesecake bites. They are full of sugar. These taste just as good if not better, and they are HEALTHY. Give them a try! I have yet to have someone try these and not gasp at their goodness.


Refined Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Raw, Vegan Dulce De Leche Cheesecake Bites


For the base:
1 cup almonds
1 cup pecans
4 tablespoons organic raw cacao powder
1/2 cup pitted medjool dates
2 tablespoons coconut oil (I used Quoquos Coco Choco Boost)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the filling
2 cups raw cashews soaked overnight in an airtight container
1 cup organic zucchini (peeled and cubed)
6 drops vanilla creme Sweet leaf sweet drops or 1 tsp stevia
4 tablespoons coconut oil (I used Quoquos Coco Lecithin Boost)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

For the dulce de leche topping:
1 can full-fat coconut milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup honey
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Put all the ingredients for the crust in a food processor and process until a wet and crumbly texture.


Divide evenly into a lined 12-cavity mini cheesecake pan and press down firmly.


Put the cheesecake pan in the freezer to harden the crust while you prepare the cheesecake filling.

Prepare the filling:
Peel and dice the zucchini.


Put all the ingredients for the cheesecake filling into a Blender and blend until a smooth and creamy. You want to run several cycles and scrape down the blender. Because you want it as creamy as you can get. So plan on several minutes here.


Remove the cheesecake pan from the freezer and evenly distribute the filling on top of each crust. Place back in the freezer while you prepare the caramel topping.


Prepare the topping:
In a large saucepan with a thick bottom combine coconut milk, honey and maple syrup and salt.


Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Lower the heat to medium-low and let reduce for about 50 minutes, stirring every now and then. Add coconut oil and cook for further 5 minutes until it reaches a deep caramel color.

Don’t rush it. The process could be faster or slower, depending on how hot your burner is. Stir every so often towards the end, to keep the bottom from burning too much. Remove from the heat, transfer to a bowl and let cool for about 5 minutes, then stir until smooth and glossy.

Take out the cheesecake pan from the freezer and top with caramel.

Place back in the freezer for a couple hours or overnight to set. You can bring them to the fridge the day you are serving. They can be served right out of the freezer or for a softer texture, at fridge temperature.

Happy #TacoTuesday

These taco's are packed with nutrients, but they taste like they are bad for you. Enjoy!


Healthy Fish Tacos with Creamy Avocado Sauce
written by Christi Silbaugh

2 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp sweet paprika
½ tsp salt
1 lb fresh white fish fillets (halibut, Mahi mahi, snapper, Tilapia etc.. Your choice.)

Avocado-Yogurt Sauce:
1 large ripe avocado, pitted and roughly chopped
¼ cup plain GREEK yogurt
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
½ cup roughly chopped cilantro
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup water

Tacos and Garnishes:
12 small corn tortillas
Shredded cabbage or broccoli slaw
Cilantro
Grated or Julienned Radish
Chopped tomato

Marinate the Fish:
In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, olive oil, chili powder, cumin, paprika and salt, and stir until smooth. Pat the fish dry with paper towels.

Rub on both sides with the lime-pepper marinade. Transfer to a plate and cover tightly with plastic wrap, then transfer to the refrigerator to marinate for 15-20 minutes.

Prepare the #Avocado Sauce:
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the avocado, yogurt, lime juice, cilantro, salt and water, and process until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a serving bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Cook the Fish:
In a large heavy-bottomed skillet set over medium-high heat, saute the fish in the remaining 2 tbsp olive oil until opaque and flaky, about 4-5 minutes per side.
Remove from heat, and transfer to a platter. Using a fork, break up each filet into bite-sized chunks. Cover with foil, and set aside while you warm the tortillas.

Warm the Tortillas and Assemble the Tacos!!

#FlashbackFriday and I just finished a round of #21dfx so its a flashback and a #Transformation post. On the left was 21 days ago, on the right was today. What did I do?

21 days
30 minutes a day of guided exercise.
1 shakeology a day.

AND I FEEL AMAZING!!! I'm ready to go again!

This program is on sale until the end of this month and you can get it for just $10 with the purchase of your shakeology superfoods. Its like a $60 savings.
The time is going to pass anyway, so why not work towards some goals? Just enough time to end this Summer STRONG!

I have private one on one coaching, and I have groups you can go into if you want to meet new friends and challenge yourself right alongside others that have similar goals. The choice is yours.

I am ready when you are!

Life isn't happening to you. Your life is a direct reflection of the choices you have made. So if you don't like it, make a different choice. I get so sad when I hear people say statements like: "I wish I could... INSERT RANDOM DREAM HERE" ... My response is almost always...

"well then go do it, go make it happen!"

Wishes are for fake princesses in castles. If you want the fairy tale, you have to create it. It starts in your soul, it tells the mind, the mind decides yay or nay. So change your mind... change your life. Start believing... you can have, do, be, anything you set your mind to. It just takes one step at a time.

GO OUT AND GET IT!

I am a HUGE potato fanatic and live for my hash-browns. However, my waistline is begging me to pass the potatoes by.
So this I found a solution. I make Poached Eggs over Cheesy Cauliflower Quinoa Cakes. It really is scrumptious, and I don't miss my potatoes at all! The crispy cakes took the place of my normal comfort food potatoes, and they are much healthier! You can make the Quinoa base ahead of time, and fry it up that morning to save time.


Poached Eggs Over Cauliflower Quinoa Cakes
Written by Christi Silbaugh

For Cakes:
1 cup quinoa, well rinsed
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 cups Cauliflower, chopped
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup parmesan Cheese, plus more for dusting
1 egg
1 TBSP Avocado oil
salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan Cheese
Avocado oil
Eggs to Poach
Optional Parsley for garnish

To make this meal, let's first start with the Quinoa Cakes.
Add quinoa, and broth to a large pot.
Cover and bring the quinoa, broth and broccoli to a boil over medium heat. Add Cauliflower reduce the heat and simmer covered until the broth has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender,about 15-20 minutes.

Mix in the cheese, let it melt and season with salt and pepper. Let cool for a bit, then add your egg immediately stir as fast as you can to mix it.
If you want to stop at this point you can keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Or you can move on and finish making the cakes.
With an ice cream scoop, scoop out the Quinoa mixture and roll it in Parmesan cheese.

Heat avocado oil in a skillet. Add your Quinoa balls and flatten once in the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown on the side that is down in the pan.

Now flip it over and cook for 2-3 minutes more to brown on the second side.

These cakes can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days and you can reheat them when ready to eat.
