Parmesan Chicken made Healthy

I love easy Chicken recipes that my whole family will eat.
It's simple to throw together and my kids love it!
I like to combine this meal with some brown rice and a veggie.




Here is the recipe!!

Parmesan Chicken

2 cups Whole Wheat Ritz crackers
3 T. grated parmesan cheese
2 tsp. garlic salt
8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup. plain yogurt (or plain greek yogurt)
1 egg, whisked in a dish

Combine cracker crumbs, parmesan cheese and garlic salt.  Dip each piece of chicken in egg dish. Then dip in yogurt, then in crumb mixture. Arrange in greased 9 by 13 inch pan. Bake covered at 350 for about 30-45 minutes (depending on thickness of your chicken). Uncover for 5 minutes to slightly brown the top. Serves 8

Hope you enjoy this recipe.

STRONG & Slim for Summer

I am going to be holding another 30-day Challenge group next month.

This one starts May 4th, and goes for 30 days.

STRONG & Slim for Summer

This challenge is going to get you ready to feeling confident for Summer.

Both my May Challenges are for support and motivation, and keep you accountable to your health & fitness goals.

But today is the last day to order for each of the Challenges. Whichever one you choose.

If you have been wanting to make a change for a long time, but just need the support.

Or if you have been wanting to step up your routine and eating healthy up a notch.

Then a good 30-Day Challenge is for you!

Many of my clients say they just needed this push that the 30 day Challenge gives you!

If you feel like you are competitive do the Burn2Earn.

It is a great contest where you can earn cash by loosing 6% or more of your body weight.

These are groups on facebook that you check into once a day to get motivation and support of other challengers in the group. They are very fun and make your journey ALOT more exciting then if you were to do it on your own.

Both challenges will be focusing on getting you more in control and STRONG! Pushing yourself more, and the Challenge group is going to help you with this- along with me as your Coach!

So message, text, call me if you want more information and I can get it to YOU!

Showing our Kids how to live LIFE to the Fullest!

Our kids need to see us being active, being healthy.

BUT, most importantly, not being down on ourselves when we aren't all the time.

They need to see struggles.
They need to see our strengths.
They need to see how we learn from life
and how to get past a struggle.
I am working on this myself.
Sometimes in life we want to give up.
Those are the bad days.
But the good days outweigh those bad days.
So set an example for your kids.
Be their HERO.
Show them how to rise from adversity.
I don't post very many pictures of my kids, but this one has to be shared.


I look at this picture often to be reminded of that what I am doing,
well . . . my kids are watching.
This makes me happy to know that they are learning about being healthy
which makes us happy. 
"Having a Healthy body" is what she wrote. WOW! I hope she always remembers that. As I teach her that having a healthy body doesn't mean having a perfect body, but a body that makes you feel good, mentally, physically, emotionally. In all aspects.
I am thankful for this.
I am thankful for this new journey.
To show my kids how important it is to be Healthy & Happy, 
amidst what others show us in this world.

Set an example to your kids of being active often, and eating those foods that fuel your body and give you the energy, and less of the guilt.

I will always remember this day I took this picture. It was our time as a MOM & daughter. And I had gone to the store to get a treat for our Friday night! Pretty funny! But I picked up this white board. My daughter came up to show me what she drew. She is my little artist. And I was so proud.

We want our kids to learn to be healthy. And we can teach them this by our example and what we do each day and by being better each day. They will know how to enjoy life and live it to the fullest. 
Because being healthy makes us happy.

Life is what YOU make of it!

Who gets YOU -where you want to be?

YOU DO!


I wanted to share with you a little bit about me!

I am a Mother, Wife, Health & Fitness Coach with Beachbody,
A Blogger of All things Health, 
I am a Child of God,
and I am part of an amazing Family.

But what I like to focus on the Most is

YOU!

And how it is important for YOU to take care of yourself 

so YOU can take care of your family.

I believe that is why we were given LIFE,

is to come into a Family who loves and cares for us.

Then as we grow and learn in our family, we find out who we are 

and how we can help others find out

who THEY are.

If we love ourself and take care of ourself,

we will have the energy to love others.

Healthy Meal ideas for Kids

Who get's in the rut of what to put on the table for your kids and wanting them to actually eat it?
Well you are doing a great job if you expect them to try a different food, but understanding that kids don't always like a new food.
I have found it best to tell them they have to at least try it.

I also get stuck in the rut of just making what I know they will eat, and sometimes that isn't the healthiest choice- Mac N' Cheese here we come.

But I have some tips and healthy meal ideas for you to take some stress away.



Head on over to my friend Shambray's blog where I post once a month with Healthy tips.

Shambray
On the post today I give 3 healthy meal ideas for kids, that even Mom's will love to eat!
