No Guilt Carbs

No Guilt Carbs

The end of the week brings leg day for me! I usually save my leg day for Saturday to allow for some extra carbs in my nutrition.

Did you know that your carb storage tanks are in your muscles (and liver)? So having some extra carbs on leg day is a great way to build lean muscle. Complex carbs are best (steel cut oats, brown rice, quinoa, sweet potatoes) but this is the day I work in an occasional treat with no guilt!

These are some of the things that my clients are learning as they are going through Refine YOU’s FAT (Fast, Attainable, Transformation) Program.

Little tricks like having your treats work FOR you and not against you is key for success LONG TERM.
Severely restricting your nutrition may be attainable short term, it is not a good long term strategy. Focus on finding techniques that will get you the results and that you can maintain indefinitely.

The next Program begins soon and spots are filling up. If you have any questions, PM me! I would love to hear from you and answer your questions. To check out more information about the program click the link here.

Spicy Ground Beef with Butternut Squash

Spicy Ground Beef with Butternut Squash

My meal prep included one of my favorites courtesy of www.myheartbeats.com

Spicy Ground Beef and Butternut Squash.

This recipe I will do anytime I come across butternut squash already cubed at Costco.

I saw it... I bought it... I get to make it!  If you do get the squash from Costco I typically just double the recipe and that will use up the entire container of squash. I have also done this recipe with brussel sprouts and asparagus in the past but I just love it with the squash! I'd say this recipe is 5 servings so the macro breakdown is 

Calories 250 NET Carbs 8g Fat 15g Protein 20g

2tbsp avocado oil

1 onion

1 serrano Pepper minced

4 garlic cloves minced

1 tsp salt, 1 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp pepper
