that’s amore – homemade whole wheat pizza crust + med ball moves

what.a.morning.

 i woke up at 2:30am randomly and just couldn’t get comfy again nor could i go back to sleep! daylight savings time + a kickboxing 27 week fetus = one tired mama.  praying & hoping this doesn’t become a normal occurrence.

1394560576

getting to 5:30am class was something like pulling teeth but we made it!  smiling up there in the pic cause my workout was finally over after that :lol: .  i taught Total Conditioning for 1 hr as usual and then did these exercises with the med ball and bands afterwards (listed clockwise):

  1.  medicine ball squat throws against the wall: 4 x 25
  2. med ball squats w/ explosive jack - band is optional but come ooooon! USE IT! 4 x 25
  3. burpees with overhead dumbbell presses. modify where needed! walk back if you are preggo or nursing an injury if you do not wish to jump. it’s your workout. 3 x 12
  4. 90 degree wall sits with extended med ball (see top pic).  hold this guy for as long as you can. your arms will most likely give out before your legs, so let them drop but stay up until you can’t take it anymore. HOLD until it burns ;)

i owe you a pizza crust recipe, don’t i!

this was Chiso’s cheese pie hot outta the oven.

1394560906

the sauce is homemade too!!! i’ll share that recipe in a future post.

1394560712

and here’s the pie i made Sonny and i for dinner that night looooaded with goodies!

extra lean ground chicken, red onion, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, grape tomatoes, fresh cilantro,  homemade pizza sauce, and plenty of shredded provolone.

i’m saving my very special crust recipe for my homemade pizza cooking class so you’ll have to join me on March 25th to get that one!

homemade whole wheat pizza crust

the stuff:

  • 1 cup white whole wheat bread flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp coconut sugar (or agave nectar or honey or pure maple syrup)
  • 1 cup warm water
  • dash sea salt
  • 1/4th tsp fresh minced garlic
  • 2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
  • 2 1/4 tsp yeast (1 envelope)

do this: 

ok, i actually had steps listed out for the beginning part ( :shock: i know) but SEEING it done is the easiest way to actually get it. i don’t want to scare you guys from making it and i haven’t created my own video yet, so i’m going to use a popular youtube vid that is very similar to what i did. also, i added the dry seasonings and garlic in with the wet ingredients.

  1. NOW you’re ready! let the dough rise for at least 2 hours minimum. (whip up a ball right after breakfast)
  2. preheat your oven to 500 degrees and put your pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven NOW.
  3. on a flat, clean, floured surface, drop your round dough ball in to the center.
  4. use your fingers to press the dough out as wide/thin as you’d like it. my Sur la table instructor advised against using a rolling-pin.
  5. sprinkle your pizza paddle (or a pan/cookie sheet with no edges) generously with dry, yellow corn meal
  6. pick up your dough and place it on top of the corn meal bed. is it slide-able? rock the pan back and forth and see.
  7. top your pizza however you’d like. (sauce, cheese, veggies, meat, cheese…but remember less is more! that doesn’t apply to cheese though)
  8. do a slide check one more time, then open your oven and transfer (rock vigorously back and forth til you’ve successfully moved it over) the pizza paddle onto the already HOT HOT HOT pizza stone or baking pan.
  9. needs to bake about 7-9 minutes at most. cooks super fast!

nutritional stats ONLY IF you use the entire dough ball and make a gigantic pizza cut into 8 slices:

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 2.47.52 PM

i find that cutting the ball in half first makes the perfect size pie for 2 people. in that instance, stats for 1 slice when cut into 8:

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 3.15.12 PM

you can refrigerate the other half for 2-3 days and even longer in the freezer.

 Q: what do you do when you can’t go back to sleep? read? watch TV? stare at your significant other in the dark? :shock:

hostess with the mostess – cheesy spinach and squash au gratin

my mom is a pre-K teacher and still on her holiday break, so she and my aunt (her sis-in-law) came over to hang out, sleepover, and keep Chiso company with us. which means, i get ta’ COOKIN’!  whipping up healthy, tasty food for my family gives me life (add that to the phrases we should stop using in 2014 :roll: ) but it best describes how i feel while i’m doing my thing in my kitchen.  now can i do all this again tomorrow?  you bet! playing hostess is FUN. what we chowed down on today:

madewithOver (16)

lean turkey burgaaaaaas for lunch!  super easy recipe can be found on my instagram post from earlier today (look for this same photo).

madewithOver (11)

i topped the patties with cheddar style rice cheese,

2014-01-02 23.10.13

and i found those sprouted grain buns at Sprouts Farmer’s Market recently.  i was looking for the Ezekiel ones but these were cheaper and by Alvarado Street Bakery.  heard a lot about them and was not disappointed.

madewithOver (10)

no lettuce or avocado in the house, womp. but i did have condiments, tomatoes, and plenty of pickles. stuff your burgers with your fave toppings and toast your buns (makes a big difference in taste and texture).  everyone enjoyed their burger except for you-know-who.

he touched it like he was going to pick it up and then faked everybody out.  i’ll try again tomorrow.

i’ve been playing around with a squash casserole type recipe for the past few days and finally just went for it today since i was all up in the kitchen anyway. turned out better than i imagined, whoa. 

madewithOver (9)
 Sonny says it tastes just like Boston Market’s squash casserole side and well, i won’t argue with him!

madewithOver (12)

cheesy spinach & squash au gratin

the stuff:

  • 2 large zucchini, raw, coined & halved (see pic above)
  • 2 large yellow squash, raw, coined & halved
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • Earth Balance Organic Whipped Buttery Spread
  • 2 tbsp liquid aminos
  • 1 cup frozen, thawed spinach
  • 1/2 cup cheddar style rice cheese
  • 1/2 cup skim mozzarella (you may use mozzarella almond cheese as well)
  • 1/8 cup light parmesan cheese

breadcrumbs:

  • 3 slices Sara Lee 45 Calories & Delightful bread, toasted until crispy
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 cup light parmesan cheese

do this:

  1. spray your casserole dish with no-stick cooking spray and pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. make breadcrumbs by combining listed ingredients in your food processor and pulsing until you achieve a breadcrumb-like consistency.
  3. in a large skillet over medium heat, saute the garlic, onion, zucchini, and squash together for 4-5 minutes or until translucent.
  4. add spinach, garlic powder, onion powder, liquid aminos, parsley, and cracked black pepper to pan; mix.
  5. cover pan and let cook down for 10 more minutes before shutting off the heat and pouring your squash mixture into your prepared casserole dish. set aside.
  6. in a separate bowl, whisk eggs.
  7. to the egg mixture, add 1/8 cup of parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup of breadcrumb mixture, 1/2 cup of cheese, and the 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
  8. if your squash mixture has completely cooled by now, go ahead and add the egg mixture to it in the casserole dish and mix WELL. if it’s still warm, temper the eggs by adding a little bit of squash mixture to the egg mixture (in that order, please!)  at a time to prevent making scrambled eggs.  the cold almond milk should help cool the squash mixture down faster too. once all combined, set aside.
  9. add the last 1/2 cup of cheese to  1/4 cup of the breadcrumb mixture and sprinkle it on top of your casserole evenly.
  10. bake for 40-45 minutes or until the casserole no longer jiggles when you shake the dish.
  11. let it cool then dive in.

i divided my dish into 8 nice size servings and here are the stats for 1 serving: 162 cals, 6g fat, 14g carbs, 15g protein, 4 g sugar.

have a seat, Boston Market :lol:

lastly, for dinner, i heated up some leftover chicken & veggie stir fry and mixed it with some marinara sauce to revive the flavors. very yummy!  i also baked two pans of swai for tonight and for Sonny’s lunches tomorrow.  i don’t add ANY salt to the swai cause it doesn’t need it at all like tilapia.

20140102_224218_1

  i topped these with onion powder, garlic powder, and salt free Southwest seasoning from Mc Cormick (found at Walmart and HEB) and cooked them for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven. that’s it!  roasted brussels sprouts on the side.
madewithOver (14)

 thinking about all the crazy business ideas in my head and on my heart for 2014 and it overwhelms me.  i’m determined to make 2014 NOTHING like 2013 though. one day at a time.  ok, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

fit n’ crispy chicken parm

Italian food. its been on my mind lately.

20131203_094417_1

i really wanted something heavy like a big pan of cheesy lasagna but this nipped that craving right in the bud.  it’s lean, it’s fit, it’s crispy, it’s savory, and it’s good.

20131203_095225_1

making your own bread crumbs is super simple and recommended.  i used some toasted Sara Lee 45 Calories & Delightful bread for mine.

20131203_104037_1

perfect. no frying needed! i had planned to sear the chicken on both sides in my cast iron skillet (before putting them into the oven to finish) cause i wanted that crispy, crunchy exterior, but omitting that step still produced the same results. SCORE.

20131203_104949_1

i used Classico all natural, fire roasted tomato & garlic sauce,

20131203_105233_1

and topped the breasts with a heaping tbsp of sauce, a few spinach leaves, and a big slice of mozzarella almond cheese.

madewithOver-1

i know chicken parm is usually paired with some variety of pasta, but i had a big, unbaked spaghetti squash sitting on my counter i needed to use.

madewithOver-3

tender, Italian juiciness.  recipe time :)

fit n’ crispy chicken parm

the stuff: breadcrumbs

  • 1/4 cup light parmesan cheese (optional for a dairy-free dish)

the stuff: chicken

  1. toast slices of bread until crispy, not burnt but no longer soft and chewy.
  2. break them up into pieces by hand and toss them into your food processor.
  3. add the onion powder, garlic powder, parmesan cheese, and Italian seasonings.
  4. blend until you achieve a breadcrumb-like consistency and set to the side.

do this: chicken – preheat oven to 400 degrees now!

  1. pound and flatten thawed chicken breasts (under a towel, in plastic wrap, in a plastic bag, etc) with your mallet until about 1/2 in thick.
  2. place them into a large bowl and pour the liquid aminos and melted whipped butter spread over the top, coating evenly.
  3. spread out the breadcrumb mixture onto a large, flat plate.
  4. spray your baking pan with no stick cooking spray and set it on your work station.
  5. take each chicken breast and dip/press them into the breadcrumb mixture coating both sides evenly.
  6. place them neatly into your pan, flat.  if they are touching it’s ok but don’t overcrowd your pan.
  7. sprinkle cracked black pepper onto the breasts.
  8. place pan(s) into the oven and cook for 20 minutes on one side; flip, and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  9. remove chicken from oven (make sure they are done in the center) and remove the breasts from the pan.
  10. pour tomato sauce into your pan, covering the bottom completely.
  11. place chicken breasts back into pan on top of sauce.
  12. top them each with 1-2 tbsp more of sauce, a few leaves of spinach, as well your cheese (you can shred it too, your call.)
  13. place back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes or until your cheese is all bubbly and melty!

fyi, there was a little over 1/4 cup of unused breadcrumbs left.

20131025_130126_1

this caught my attention today while we were waiting for our food at one of Houston’s most popular Jamaican spots, Cool Runnings.

CYMERA_20131025_220200

i feel guilty when i don’t pack Sonny’s food for the day for whatever reason and today was one of those days :shock: , so we scooped him up on his break and enjoyed some lunch together.

20131025_142814_2

afterwards, fro-yo @ Swirll.  cause when you make an ice cream promise, you gotta keep it.

20131025_142735_1

our conversations get deeper by the week as his vocabulary expands!

20131025_184426_1

after Sonny got off later, we went with Uncle Bri-Bri to The Hill for an endurance workout before the sun went down.

CYMERA_20131025_205655_1

ok they worked out, not me, boo.  i mean i couldn’t really participate cause i had to keep an eye on the boy with those cyclists speeding by and all. however i improvised and put Chi on my back and went up and down the stairs a few times for a super slow lower body burn.  i’ve got sample cardio workouts coming right up by request!

CYMERA_20131025_223531

then the mosquitoes quadrupled and we left.

here’s the recipe for those stuffed peppers i made for dinner last night! i used what i had in my fridge:

madewithOver

the stuff:

  • 6 med-large bell peppers, any color
  • 1 medium shallot
  • 1 lb. 97% lean ground turkey
  • 1 bunch asparagus, chopped
  • 5 portabella mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen sweet corn

i workout for:


 well good morning!

CYMERA_20131010_090639

i workout for all those reasons and more, but i should have included eating lots of food!!! that’s #1.

since i workout super early in the AM most days, i have been enjoying Houston’s Fall weather to the fullest.  Fall not only means chili and cornbread, it means warm, hearty, filling, yummy, COMFORT food in general to me!  a big bowl of super creamy mac n cheese is hands down my fave (to eat in a bowl anyway, pizza is the other) and FITzee Food’s Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake was all that (hearty, filling, yummy, creamy, cheesy) and more.

fresh chicken breast, black forest ham, swiss cheese and mushrooms baked together in a creamy wine sauce with a touch of sage and topped with Panko bread crumbs. HEAVEN on a bowl plate.

CYMERA_20131010_115731

it was shipped to me as a perfect, rectangular, loaf, but i had a little accident transporting it to my plate. again.  hey it all went to the same place. again.

20131010_110801_1-1

deliciously low carb, cheesy, and packed with protein!  a great choice.

i found this online yesterday and had to share with my fit foodies:

PhotoGrid_1381363223295

couple things though:

  • when dining out, go for the broth based (tomato, chicken, beef, vegetable, clear, see-through) soups vs. the creamy ones because they are usually made with milk or heavy cream.
  • the leanest cuts of beef include:
    • eye of round roast or steak
    • sirloin tip side steak
    • top round roast and steak
    • bottom round roast and steak
    • top sirloin steak
  • a cup of any fruit usually is anywhere from 50-100 cals, but the sugar count is what you should keep your eye on.
  • air/stove popped over microwaved popcorn any day

Q: what activity (exercise) have you wanted to try but haven’t?
i’d like to try the different types of yoga- i had NO idea there we so dang many.

birthday steak

august 6th is a pretty important day.  it’s Sonny’s birthday!  he received love from his entire family all day long, which is how it should be!

his first gift (and two of his most favorite things) came from Chiso:

CYMERA_20130807_151803

oreos and gummy bears.  oh and a card.

chisogiftbirthdaysonny

we found Chiso upstairs knocked OUT the night before and Sonny snagged this gem of a pic.

early morning balloons from his youngest sister, lunch with his little brother, gifts and love from his mom, and his other sister watched Chiso for us while we went out to play!

i got my private date later in the evening for dinner.  I took Sonny to the infamous Eddy V’s baby! all the reviews i scoured through were SPOT ON.  we had a fab time and the staff worked super hard to make his day special. i mean really! we HIGHLY recommend Eddy V’s for outstanding food and exceptional service, especially for special occasions.

image (3)

just happy to be on this man’s arm!  we started out with two appetizers:

20130806_193451

a gorgeous plate of shrimp and pork pot stickers. spicy shrimp and pork in a light soy broth. yeah, it was as delectable as it looks.

20130806_194229

and i tried the Fuji apple salad complete with green beans, baby beets, candied walnuts, maytag blue cheese, ginger orange vinaigrette. crisp and sweet.

20130806_195720

for my entrée, North Atlantic Lemon Sole!  parmesan crust with tomato and herb salad, lemon garlic butter on tha side.

image (4)

speaking of sides, crab fried rice? whoa. sugar snap peas with shiitake mushrooms & onions,  sautéed garlic spinach, and a hunk of sourdough bread.

all al la carte, all al la delicious.

20130806_195742

this thing needed its own drum roll after weighing in @ a whopping 22 oz of USDA Prime Ribeye.  my goodness.

image (5)

it’s the only way to do it on ya birthday- BIG.

next, time for something sweet.

CYMERA_20130807_141801

which one did we pick? the closest thing to a brownie cause that what Sonny always gets.  the Hot Godiva Chocolate Cake!  and yall, we have NOTHING to show for it cause both of our phones died RIGHT AFTER THE PIC ABOVE.  no kidding. this cake was the highlight of the evening!!!! pissed was not even the word.  however, thank God for Google cause that’s exactly what i did.

godiva

boom.  hot chocolate cake, creamy, cold vanilla bean ice cream…….. :shock:

WORTH EVERY BITE.

*IMPORTANT FIT FOODIE LEAN E-BOOK UPDATE*

guys…… as much as it pains me to say this, i’m still having issues with my ebook file displaying correctly. what can i say- i designed the book a certain way and well, i want it to be viewed that way!  i am a huge visual person, so i love PICTURES.  my ebook is filled with them.  however, when it comes to most ebook publishing sites, things get extremely  meticulous as the books must fit a crap load of criteria to work/upload properly.  clearly i’m no expert, and i’ve been having issue after issue trying to do this thing on my own.  i needed help. so i got some.   thank you to the fit foodies that have already purchased Fit Foodie Lean when it went up on amazon.com last weekend. YOU.ROCK.  i received several messages and notification concerning the book’s resolution and not being able to read some of the text (which is the issue being corrected at this time)… and you gotta be able to read the recipes correctly, hello! :shock:   so please be patient with me… to have put it out thinking i was finally DONE only to have to crack this case right back open seriously threw me for a loop this week.  in short, lol, i’m waiting as patiently as you are and i will update you as soon as i can give you one, promise.

*if you’ve already paid, your copy will update at no charge as soon as the file is successfully uploaded.*

thank youuuuu!
