roasted garlic quinoa

I’m always looking for a tasty, easy to make, complex carb that I don’t feel I have to add butter or other flavoring to.  Today I tried Roland’s Roasted Garlic Quinoa.  It was really good and super easy to make!  Paired with a salad and turkey breast it was very enjoyable!

Found a 10 day cleanse/24 day challenge yummy soup!

So I’ve found it pretty hard to find pre-made foods that are clean enough for the 10 day cleanse portion of the 24 day challenge.  I decided to try a few soups by the McDougall’s brand.  They have very few ingredients, all of which are “allowed” and are all natural.  I decided to try the Black Bean soup first. After shaking and opening the container by just tearing on the dotted line as the box suggests, I looked in and was happy that it looked and smelled good!  I decided to heat it on the stovetop to give it the best chance of being yummy.  I also decided to add some ground turkey I had already prepared to make sure I had enough protein.  I put it at a low heat and covered it.  I stirred a few times and when it was bubbling a bit, I poured it into a large bowl (warning the full box will overflow a small bowl).  I made sure it was cool enough to eat and took a bite and was soooo happy!  A flavorful meal that was easy to make!  This is now something I eat almost daily in the 10 day cleanse/24 day challenge, and will continue eating after it’s done!  In the grocery store it can be found in the organic section and is pretty expensive, I love Amazon for having it for such a great deal!  Subscribe and save? Yes please!

I loved it so much, I tried the Lentil soup, and yep!  Super good!  Black bean is still my fav, but I’ll have both on hand at all times!



The AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge

Are you unhappy with your weight?  Me! Me! ME!  I’ve tried all the major weight loss programs, and they, along with group meeting and weigh ins and membership fees aren’t for me, and frankly, don’t work!  My friend, that was looking to just tone up told me she was going to start the Advocare cleanse.  I said, oh, that’s nice, good luck!  And then told my husband, Jason about it.  He told me about how many people he knows that have had great success with this program and that we should do it!  I was surprised because he’s not into these kind of things.  I looked into the program more and asked my friend about it, and decided to try it out!  Since my husband and I decided to try it together, it made more sense to become “distributers”  which to me means, I can save on my future orders as well as get the free stuff in the distributor kit too! So here we are!  trying out the 24 day challenge!  What is it?  Well, here is the low down from Advocare:
