PiYo with Grocery List and Recipes!

I am NOT:
trying to have the best body on the beach
training for a marathon

on a strict diet
basing my self-worth on my appearance

wanting be a great example to my daughter, to be healthy for my sake, my daughter, husband and family, to feel good myself and to become stronger each day!

I have many people ask me about the difference between the PiYo Meal Plan and the 21 Day Fix Nutrition?  Basically, some of the portion sizes vary a bit.  Bottom line, the main differences for me are that I am eating one less grain, fruit and healthy fat serving and I am eating one more protein and veggie serving.  This is actually pretty similar to what I was doing when I switched to a stripped version of the 21 Day Fix meal plan.

I do tend to rotate through the same snacks and lunches on a regular basis.  I mix things up a bit at dinner.   Other than my own full serving of morning Shakeology, I pretty much eat the same things.  Here are the recipes for what we are having for dinner here this week!

Monday - Trader Joes has a great marinate with low sodium, now I wouldn't suggest eating this all the time but moderation is key. I tend to naturally use sauces very sparingly.  As a busy mom, finding a store-bought item like this to use every now and then is what makes clean eating work for us!  I will thinly slice chicken breast and then toss it in this sauce while cooking.  Use whatever veggies you like plus a simple brown rice and serve this one fresh from the skillet!  

Tuesday - My Beef Lettuce Wraps are based on this recipe from the 21 Day Fix Extreme.  Simply substitute flank steak in place of the chicken.

Wednesday and Thursday - BBQ Chicken is a family favorite around here.  Along the lines of the "sauce perspective" from Monday, I will lightly use Trader Joe's BBQ sauce.  It is much better than many of the mainstream options out there.  OR if you would like to make your own BBQ, here is a recipe that looks pretty good!  My Coconut Veggies are a recipe from the 3-Day Refresh and it has become one of my own favorite ways to enjoy cooked veggies! We have come to really enjoy sweet potatoes and they are superior to regular potatoes when it comes to nutrition.  There is nothing wrong with including a balanced amount of carbs in our diet.  We just need to choose well!  

Friday - Citrus Grilled Chicken is based on the Insanity Max 30 recipe for citrus steak.  You will use 1/2 cup fresh lemon or lime juice, 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, 4 tsp. olive oil and 4 cloves of garlic.  Combine these items and marinate the chicken in this mixture.  Then grill the chicken!  The Rosemary Mushrooms are also from this program and they are sooooo good!  Heat oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Add 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic and 4 cups of mushrooms.  Stir frequently while cooking for 5 minutes or so until juices from the mushrooms have evaporated and they are tender.  Add a bit of fresh rosemary and bit of sea salt.  Stir occasionally, cooking for another 2-3 minutes.  Mash your sweet potatoes with a bit of cinnamon and add a side salad for a lovely meal!

Saturday -I love SALMON --this is one way that I do actually genuinely enjoy salmon.  :)

Sunday - This Cobb Salad recipe is from Insanity Max 30 and has become something that my family requests over and over again!
