Savory Turkey and Sweet Potato Hash

I found this recipe in my Country Heat eating plan and it’s become a regular. It’s something different, it’s super easy, and it’s protein-veggies-carb all in one pan. We will have it for dinner paired with a salad. Or I’ll make a big batch on Sunday and use it for lunches during the week.

Recipe Notes

If you're looking for 21 Day Fix container counts, one serving (3/4 cup) counts as 1/2 green, 1 yellow, 1 red, and 1/2 teaspoon.

When I'm looking to woo a child, I omit the peppers 🙁 One day they'll eat them, I'm sure of it. But in the meantime...

December: New Month, New Goals

December doesn’t seem like a really good time to set goals for some reason, does it? It’s a busy month. Lots of shopping, running around, decorating, baking, socializing, class parties, winter concerts, etc….

december

And you don’t need a new month to set goals. I love that I have learned (and really believe) that any day can be a fresh start, a good day to start anew, a time to set goals. That said, there’s something about a new month, a new year, a Monday, that feels like a fresh start. So, don’t let a Tuesday or March or the 4th of the month keep you from making a new start, but take advantage of those days that just feel like a natural time for it.

I’ve been in a goal setting frame of mind lately. I think it’s an area I neglect. I don’t really set goals, and if I do they’re usually vague. A vague idea of what I want to do. But a lot of the reading I’ve done lately, and things I’ve listened to in podcasts and stuff, has emphasized the importance of clarity. It makes sense to me. So it’s an area I’ve chosen to work on…

This month’s goals are…

  1. To set goals (haha!). Clear ones.
  2. Run 2-3 times a week.
  3. Decorate more for Christmas.
  4. Enjoy the season and avoid the stress.
  5. Read books that will help me grow (at least 10 minutes each day)

#1 Well, I talked about goal setting. I want to really work on the vision I have for my life. I’m not sure where I’m going. Does this sound crazy? I’m 41; shouldn’t I know? This might be because I’m approaching a time of transition in my life. Next year my youngest will go to kindergarten. Full-day kindergarten. I feel like a phase in my life is coming to a close. (I will not cry right now, I will not cry right now, I will not cry right now) So this raises some questions. What will I do? Will I go back to work? I don’t want to go back to teaching full-time, not yet at least, maybe not ever. I don’t want to get into too much detail here, but this is on my mind. I need to figure out what I want so I can better go about making it happen. I think having a bigger picture kind of goal will help me with goal setting in the different aspects of my life.

#2 I think I need to run more. I love my at-home workouts and I will never give them up. They are my base. They make me feel good, I enjoy them, and they get me the best physical results. But running is good for me in other ways. Mostly it’s good for me because it gets me outside. There are benefits to exercising outside that you just can’t get at home. Fresh air and sunshine are so good for us; even when it’s cold air and clouded sunshine. So I’ll be happy to roll out of bed and go work out in my living room on all those cold winter mornings. But I know I need to get out for it too sometimes. I have house-cat tendencies and I need to make sure I don’t become a full-on hermit sometimes 🙂

#3 This is not to impress anyone but my children. I am low maintenance when it comes to holidays and home decorating. But my children love decorations! I have overheard several conversations over the years between kids about what kinds of decorations kids have at their house. Danny, he’s 4, was especially disappointed at Halloween time. He brought it up again yesterday, and I said, “Well, we put out some pumpkins….And a scarecrow.” The pumpkins are the size of baseballs and they were plopped lamely on the mantle. The scarecrow is about a foot tall and I stuck him behind the piles of crap on the dining room table. I felt guilty even as I said it. So, I have decided to up my game this year to make them happy. They are also easy to please and very appreciative, so I know it won’t take a killer light show or anything.

#4 Again, this one is inspired by my little ones. I don’t want to be stressed or overtired this holiday season, because I hate when I get snappy with them at happy times. I also want to watch Frosty with them and bake with them and have fun with it all.

#5 This is a topic for another day. But I think reading books that are thought-provoking and/or positive and/or encouraging can only be good. Some people might find the idea too touchy-feely or silly or whatever. But I think it’s important to put time into developing as a person. Reading or listening to positive stuff with this intention is an easy step in the right direction.

I’m sure more goals will pop up as I go along, but this is my new month mindset for today.

What are your goals for December?

Do you set goals for yourself?

See yourself as somebody else sees you…

See yourself as somebody else sees you…

see-yourself-as-somebody-else-sees-you

The other day I asked my husband what he was reading on his phone. He said, “an interview with {I forget her name}.” My daughter asked, “Who’s that?” And he said, “The greatest female athlete.” My son, without missing a beat or looking up from his book, said, “Mama’s the greatest female athlete.”

I have to pause here for a second. And reread the last paragraph.

My first thought was, “I’m not an athlete.” My second thought was, “My kids think I’m an athlete.” That’s crazy.

I never played a sport in my life. I never cared and still don’t care about playing a sport. I’m soft around the middle. I’m not a hard core runner. I run pretty slowly and I’m bright red when I finish. I suck at throwing and catching.

But…I’m strong and I’m tough and I love working out and I love to move my body and hike. I push myself through hard things because it feels good and because it makes me a better person and because it enriches my life. My children see that.

It never occurred to me that I’m an athlete. That sounds too accomplished or competitive or something. Something other than what I am. But just hearing my son say that made me feel like one. It’s a nice feeling.

So try to see yourself as somebody else sees you. See yourself through your children’s eyes. Or your niece’s eyes, your parent’s eyes, your sister’s eyes. See what someone else sees when they look at you.

Not long before that day, I had one of those days where I felt like I sucked at everything. Everything. Ev. Ery. Thing. Being a mother. Being a wife. Making a nice home. Being a friend. Giving a go at this coach thing. Giving a go at this blog thing. Being a mom in the mom world. Shopping. Balancing responsibilities. Everything.

But I know my children didn’t see me that day as sucking at everything. They didn’t see the dust and the laundry and the lack of farmhouse decor. They like my grilled cheese and my monkey muffins. Danny smells me for God’s sake, just takes a big sniff of my shirt or my neck to smell me and be near me and he loves the way I smell. My daughters think I’m beautiful. My son thinks I’m an athlete. My husband thinks I’m a wonderful mother and someone he loves to come home to.

Sometimes we need to see past the mess we think we are. And see ourselves as somebody else sees us…

a warm mother

a good cook

a beautiful wife

a doting daughter

a strong athlete

We all have bad days, but we are usually harshest on ourselves. Be easy on yourself, love yourself, redefine yourself. That day last week when I felt like there was not one thing in this world I was good at was a rough one. And I didn’t reach out to anyone because I didn’t want to hear, “That’s not true. You’re a wonderful mother.” I felt sucky and it’s all I would have believed that day. But when my little guy crawls on my lap and puts his hands on my face, it’s hard not to feel like he’d still have me over any other mom out there. Even on those days I feel like I do suck at everything.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

I love tacos. I love that everyone in my house loves tacos. Taco night is the best night. Everyone eats, everyone is happy, no one says the word “disgusting” in connection to my cooking. It’s bliss. They even eat taco leftovers. I can send them for lunch. I love tacos.

homemade-taco-seasoning

I have to say I think my tacos are pretty good, too. I have come a long way with cooking, but I am not a natural cook. I look at my sister-in-law when she cooks, and you can just see it all comes so easily to her. Not so with me, I just keep at it. But any time I have made tacos for someone outside our immediate family I have been asked for the recipe for my taco seasoning. So I’m sharing it now. (Not that I think tacos constitute being a “good cook.” But having my gourmet cook sister-in-law ask me for any recipe? I’ll take it.)

I found it on allrecipes.com and it’s the only recipe I follow. I rewrote it on an index card and now I keep it taped on the inside of my cabinet door along with some other go-to recipes, in a very organized fashion…

www-stayathomefit-com

Homemade Taco Seasoning

from allrecipes.com

Ingredients:

1 TBSP chili powder

1/4 tsp. each: garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, oregano

1/2 tsp. paprika

1 1/2 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. each: salt, black pepper

Mix together and that’s it. I use this recipe per 1 pound of ground turkey (or beef). So if I make 2 pounds I double the recipe. It’s a bit spicy; the kids drink a lot of milk or water when we have tacos. You can use less or more of the mix depending on how spicy you want it. Try a little less or more crushed red pepper flakes, too. You can make a big batch and store it in an airtight container to use again.

Brown the meat, add the seasoning, add about 1/2 cup water. Let it cook a bit longer on low heat. Serve on the healthiest tacos or tortillas you can find. Or in a romaine leaf if you’re really feeling healthy!! Easiest and happiest dinner ever 🙂

We also make our own tortillas when we can manage it. They’re easy (but admittedly not as easy as pulling a tortilla out a package) and very good. The kids prefer them to the store-bought tortillas. I’ll share more about that soon, too…

 

Halloween

Happy Halloween!

happy-halloween

I have a love/hate thing with Halloween. I love seeing little kids in costumes. I love their excitement. I love the old-fashioned trick-or-treating. I love when they dump their candy out on the floor like I used to do and trade with each other.

I also love the new tradition of Boo-ing. If you haven’t been Boo-ed it’s when someone knocks on your door and runs away leaving a bag or bucket full of treats. Then you have to Boo other people. It’s fun getting boo-ed, the surprise of it, the suspense of not knowing who did it and trying to figure it out, the joy of candy left on your doorstep. Adding to the joy is that fact that I think every time we’ve been Boo-ed the Boo-ers have made sure all of our treats are ok for my kids. If you don’t love someone with food allergies you might not appreciate what a big deal that is. I get a little teary-eyed thinking about it. My kids are so used to not being able to have things; to get a bucket full of stuff they can have is so exciting. And it warms this mama’s heart.

As fun as getting boo-ed is, boo-ing is even more fun! We make the goodie bags up and drive off in the minivan. Sneaking up to the door and knocking and running before they open it is just so much fun. You have to try it if you haven’t. I might start boo-ing people at random throughout the year. We park the car a little bit away from the house and it feels like an adventure. This year, Thomas wore a black ski-mask and Danny wanted one. Poor Danny ended up with one of my hats 🙂 We laugh and laugh, having so much fun. I think it will be a favorite Halloween memory for them, I know it is for me!

For all the fun, I hate the stress of costumes, class parties, the lure of peanut candy. Having four children with peanut allergies surely puts a dark cloud over the whole getting candy from strangers thing, but it’s not the only reason I hate Halloween. I also hate that all the candy around makes it harder to stick to my clean eating! That’s a story for another day.

I hate when Halloween is dragged out over days and days and days. I feel like a bah-humbug when I say that but it’s true. There were some years I had to get my kids in costumes 6 times or more. And as cute as they are once they’re in their costumes, getting them in those costumes is not always so cute. It’s hard enough to get them in regular shoes sometimes, let alone regular clothes plus costume plus coat.

Those years when they had to dress up for school when their school day did not fall on Halloween, dress up for the playgroup we went to, dress up on actual Halloween, dress up for the friend’s party with a Halloween theme that did not fall on Halloween…then there are the Girl Scout Halloween parties, the local trunk-or-treat events. Enough already! (I say this, but when the actual time comes it’s hard not to be happy for the little buggers in their costumes, and I end up getting caught up in the sweetness of it all, and chat happily away with the other moms!)

And having to find all the costumes? All the costume parts and pieces for 4 kids? Not my strongest area. I’m not a great, “Ok, we’re done with that, let’s put it where it belongs,” kind of person. God only knows where the cat tail or witch hat could be.

We also have our magical upstate place (a bungalow in a bungalow colony in the Catskills that’s really hard to explain but is the the happy place for all of us) Halloween. We celebrate our own little Halloween there on the Saturday of Columbus Day weekend. This is actually more a blessing though. While it drags the whole Halloween thing out more than I might like, it also forces me to be prepared well ahead of the real Halloween. Whereas in years past, I might be scrambling to throw something together the night before (or ugh- morning of!) Halloween, I am now strangely calm in the days before…something I am not quite used to.

On October 29th….”Oh, you don’t have costumes yet? I took care of that weeks ago.” I don’t really say that. But I chuckle to myself at the reality that I am prepared ahead of time. This does not happen often. (And this year our costumes arrived the Friday of Columbus Day weekend, causing us to leave late and costing me $30 in expedited shipping. Shhhh….)

It does leave an awfully long time for things to get lost, too. That poses a problem. This year, though, I shoved them all in the back of a closet shelf, and actually remembered where I put them 🙂

My kids were very cute and excited this morning, though, and Halloween falls on a day when all of them have school. Today we will wrap up Halloween for another year. So I am feeling a little more charitable. I’m looking forward to seeing them parade around in their costumes…and it’s Thomas’s last elementary school parade. I just thought of that…now I’ll probably cry at some point too!

And I have to run now, because of course I also just remembered I have to glue Thomas’s Riddler stick back together! So much for being calm…I don’t think I have any crazy glue! Hope your Halloween is a happy one 🙂

Homemade Shake & Bake

I am all about easy, quick dinners that everyone will eat. Before I got into clean eating, I would make Shake ‘n Bake chicken or pork chops here and there and it was a big hit each time. (I actually preferred the Oven Fry brand, but it’s the same junk in a box!) Now that school has started, I’m also looking for dinners that make leftovers that are good for school lunches.

homemade-shake-n-bake

I decided to give a homemade version a try recently, and everyone loved it! I love that it made enough for at least 3 meals, too. You don’t have to mix up the coating every time you want to make “shake & bake” chicken or pork chops. It is still a convenience food, just much healthier! I have it in a quart-sized mason jar in the refrigerator. It makes delicious chicken nuggets also.

I looked at a few recipes and made some tweaks. You can find the original recipe I based mine off of here at The Black Peppercorn.

Homemade Shake & Bake

(adapted from The Black Peppercorn)

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 TBSP salt
  • 1 TBSP onion powder
  • 3 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dry parsley
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp oregano

Mix all ingredients. Store in mason jar or other container in the refrigerator.

www-stayathomefit-com-7

To make chicken or pork chops, moisten meat with water or egg. Coat in mixture. Cook at 400 degrees on a lightly oiled or foil-lined baking sheet for 20-30 minutes. To make chicken nuggets or chicken fingers, adjust cooking time accordingly. Enjoy!!

 

Clean Eating Snacks On-the-Go

Summer often means more road trips and outings. It’s fun, but all that fun can make it more difficult to eat healthy and stay on track with your health and fitness goals. I definitely loosen up my nutrition standards a lot over the summer! This year I’m hoping to do better…ice-cream, but not quite so much ice-cream. Chips, but not quite so many chips. There’s a fine line between allowing for indulgences that you enjoy and allowing for binges that make you feel like crap and mad at yourself too. Clean eating snacks on-the-go can help.

Clean eating snacks

I’ve found a little extra thought and preparation makes a big difference. If you start out with good intentions and do what you can you’re setting yourself up for success. Even if by the end of your vacation you’re inhaling pop-tarts on the car-ride home, at least you started out strong!

I put together a list of clean eating snack ideas for one of my groups and thought it would be useful to share here. It’s hard to find packaged snacks with a “clean” ingredient list, but with a little more prep you can have great snacks on-the-go.

My favorite go-to snack is Shakeology! It really is. When I’m leaving the house for a long ride I make a shake to take with me. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s loaded with nutrition, it’s filling, and since I drink it blended with a lot of ice, it cools me down, too. A nice bonus in the summertime. You can also shake up a scoop or a packet with water and drink it out and about. I’ll have an emergency stash with me wherever I go this summer. But there’s only so much Shakeology a girl can drink. Here are some more of my other favorites:

*Prepare some baggies with cut-up veggies and eat them on their own or dip in some hummus or guacamole. You can buy nice serving-sized containers of both.
*Homemade granola bars. Or energy bites. Or muffins. Take the time to make some healthy ones at home before you go and these are the perfect portable snack!
*Yogurt with berries & honey and/or granola. Make up some jars of berries and yogurt to take with you. These are best eaten when you’re not the driver…don’t ask me how I know 🙂
*Nuts and fruit are easy and portable. You can buy the 100 calorie packets or make your own. Seeds are a great option too. They’re my go-to healthy fat/protein to pair with fruit since we can’t have nuts. You don’t want to overdo it with the nuts or seeds, but pair it with an apple or banana and it’s perfect- filling and tasty.
*String cheese sticks and whole wheat/grain crackers (check the ingredient list on these) are a great option.
*Popcorn you’ve popped in an airpopper or in a pot with some healthy oil is a great snack. Shake some sea salt on it and bag it up, and you have a healthy salty snack. And the serving size is pretty big! I love this when I’m driving!
*Roasted chickpeas are a great healthy alternative. You can flavor them different ways- sweet or savory- and pack them up in little baggies.
*Celery with peanut butter or sunflower seed butter is a yummy and filling snack.
*Hardboiled eggs, so long as you peel them ahead of time, are a great way to get protein in as you snack.
*A whole wheat tortilla with peanut butter, cinnamon, and maybe some sliced banana is easy to make ahead and pack for the road. Or a good old peanut butter (or sunbutter) and jelly sandwich. Just watch the ingredients again!

Clean eating takes some extra thought and preparation, but is so worth it! Bring a little cooler or lunchbag with you for those snacks that need to be kept cool.

Clean Eating Summer Snacks (1)

We drive from New York to Florida and back every spring, so I know how important it is to be prepared! On the way down I manage to avoid fast food and junk food 100%. We pack sandwiches and snacks in a cooler. We also bring extra water to refill our reusable water bottles. I do bend a little with the kids and buy them some treats they wouldn’t normally get at home. If you’ve driven from NY to Florida with four children you’ll understand the importance of snacks.

The way home is a little harder, because it’s harder to prep away from home. We still manage to eat pretty well, though with some packaged options thrown in there. For example, SkinnyPop is a good packaged option to have in place of my popcorn. You can also find packaged granola with a not-so-bad ingredient list.

This picture is from our drive down to Florida this past April. I took a picture and posted it in my Facebook challenge group, writing something like, “Is it crazy that I packed mason jars of kefir and berries to eat on the drive?” I think some of them answered, “Yes.” But I am obsessed with kefir and berries with granola! And they’re a healthy way to fill up on the road! Alright, maybe it was a little crazy…but I didn’t eat pop-tarts 🙂

Enjoy those road trips! And enjoy your treats- but do your best to save them for treats you really want to savor, not “treats” you’re forced into buying because you’re in a pinch and hungry.

Happy Summer!! If you liked this article, don’t forget to Pin it or Share it on Facebook using the buttons below 🙂

28-Day Plank Challenge

Have you seen challenges everywhere? Especially plank challenges and squat challenges? I have and I have never done one! I’ve been most intrigued by the plank challenge, but never actually went ahead and did it even though my belly is in need of the most attention. To put it nicely.

www.facebook.com-stayathomefit

A few weeks ago a friend mentioned doing a plank challenge and I thought it would be a fun thing to try for the first time on my Facebook page! What better way to honor my trouble spot? It will be a tribute to my core, the core I can get so cranky about. Maybe it will be just what my poor core needs….

So I’ve been looking around online at different challenges to get ideas, and I put together my own schedule. My very own 28-Day Plank Challenge. I decided to go with the basic forearm plank to keep it simple. There are a lot of plank options out there, and I think trying out different ones could be a fun way to try them out and focus on strengthening different areas of the core. For now, though, I want to focus on one exercise. I also went with 28 days instead of 30 or 31 because I’m a nerd and I like to finish up on a Sunday, not some crazy day like Tuesday.

We will start at 20 seconds. If you have not been doing planks regularly, or have never done one, this might be a long time. You can shorten the length of time and/or modify the plank by doing it on your knees. If you have been doing planks this might seem too easy. You can always modify if the times don’t seem right for you. We can adjust the schedule- add or subtract seconds here and there- so that it works for where you and your core are at 🙂

StayAtHomeFitPlank Challenge (1)

We start Monday, May 30th!!! Each day I’ll post an accountability post on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/stayathomefit. All you have to do is comment on that post to let us know you did your plank. We’ll encourage each other through the 4 weeks, and hopefully share our progress!

How do you do a plank with proper form? You can watch a quick video from Fitness magazine here. Do pay attention to form- I don’t want anyone to get hurt! And of course if you have any back issues or injuries that put you at risk for injury modify or consult your doctor first!!

What are the benefits of doing a plank? It’s a wonderful way to strengthen your core, but also your upper and lower body. It can increase your flexibility, improve your posture, and have a positive effect on your mood! I’m excited about all of those things! I hope you’ll join us 🙂

 

 

Crockpot Lemon Pepper Chicken

Is anyone else going crazy lately? Isn’t end-of-the-year craziness supposed to happen closer to the actual end of the year? Or is it always like this and I’ve just forgotten? Because holy cow, I feel a little dizzy with all this end-of-the-year stuff!

Between baseball, ballet- ballet dress rehearsals- ballet recitals, spring concerts, field trips, field days, writer workshops, picnics, Daisies, Girl Scouts, and birthdays I feel a little overwhelmed. Add in a sprained ankle (not mine) and some spring sickness and the party really starts.

This is part of the reason why I was so excited for the clean eating crockpot group last week. What a great way to stay on top of healthy dinners! But that didn’t pan out like I expected. A key part of crockpot success is being here to turn it off and eat the food that’s in it. Last week my husband had late nights with his track team a few days, and we had a couple days where the kids and I were basically gone 3-8pm. I only got to make a couple dinners from the weekly meal plan. But I thought I’d share one I really love!

Crockpot Lemon Pepper Chicken

This recipe takes a little prep at the start, which takes away a bit from the beauty of a crockpot dinner. I think it’s worth it, though. The chicken actually had a nice semi-crusty coating when it was done.

 

Slow Cooker Lemon Pepper Chicken
(from blog.feelgreatin8.com)
Ingredients:
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
Preparation:
Prepare your chicken by rinsing it and trimming the fat. I cut each breast into 2 pieces to make them more like large tenders.
 In a shallow dish, combine the flour and 1 teaspoon of lemon pepper seasoning. Coat each piece of chicken in flour.
 Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
Once melted, brown each side of the chicken. You want them to be golden brown, but not cooked through because you’ll be cooking them in the slow cooker.
 Spray the slow cooker (crockpot) with cooking spray and place the browned chicken into the bottom. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of lemon pepper seasoning on top of the chicken.
 Mix together the lemon juice and chicken broth. Pour over the chicken and seasoning.
 Cook on low for 3-4 hours. Enjoy!
I doubled the recipe to serve all of us (not that all of us ate it of course) and so we’d have leftovers for lunches. It came out great. I served it over a quinoa and wild rice blend and it was delicious. You can find the original recipe here at Tiffany’s blog.

Clean Eating Crockpot Challenge Group

I am so excited about the free cleaning group I’m running this week with some other amazing coaches! We have a private Facebook group where we share a meal plan, including recipes and a shopping list. We’ve also included alternate dinner options in case there’s something you don’t like, and vegetarian options.

Clean Eating Crockpot Challenge Group

Our focus this week is crockpot recipes, particularly crockpot recipes that are lighter and feel more like spring than the stews and roasts you might associate with the crockpot. And the group is huge! We have a lot of interested people. I can see why, too. I love my crockpot. I know it’s not glamorous or fancy, but it’s easy and practical and can make some delicious dinners! I plan on using it when we have baseball in the evening, or ballet dress rehearsals. Most of my crockpot recipes are heavier and feel more at home on a cold winter day, so I’m excited to try out some new ones. There are also a lot of recipes out there that are loaded with processed ingredients. Clean eating crockpot recipes can be harder to find.

I’m also really excited that so many people are going to learn more about clean eating. It’s changed my life, and I love when I see it changing other peoples’ lives too. These groups are great for support and accountability and I always learn something.

Did you miss out on the clean eating group? We will have another one soon…Send me a message and I’ll add you to the list and keep you posted 🙂

Have a great week!
