If you're following a paleo based diet, or either the Portion Fix or 21 Day Fix, you know that getting in all of your protein for the day can sometimes be difficult. So, why not get in a couple servings of protein right off the bat for breakfast? These protein pancakes are the perfect way to do just that!
Side Glute Lift
Try this simple booty move to firm up the outer part of your glutes and thighs.
1. Simply lay on one side with your bottom leg slightly bent.
2. Lift your top leg with toe pointed.
3. Repeat for 20 reps.
4. Switch to your other side and repeat for another 20 reps.
To advance this move, you have 2 options:
1. Intermediate: Come into supported side plank with your bottom knee on the ground. Lift top leg with toe pointed.
2. Advanced: Come into full side plank with your legs stacked. Lift top leg with toe pointed.
TIU Move - Bonsai Booty
#WorkoutWednesday this #TIU move is great for total body toning without having to use any weights. Karena & Katrina deem it the Bonzai Booty haha... gotta love them!
To do the Bonzai Booty:
Now that's one tasty and healthy lunch! Pan fried Tilapia & Mediterranean orzo salad . Both are so quick and easy to make, and even better, you can make a big batch of orzo salad ahead of time and be set for a week.
Target those obliques with this simple variation on a sit up.
Repeat for 50-100 reps on each side or 3 sets of 20 reps incorporated into an ab circuit.
Side Raise & Squat
It's been a while since I've done a #WorkoutWednesday post, so here's a great total body strengthening move! the side raise and squat targets your glutes (especially that "saddlebag" area), quads, shoulders, obliques, and upper back.
Paleo Turkey Meatballs
Add these healthified paleo turkey meatballs to any pasta dish for an extra serving of protein for the day!
I don't know about ya'll, but I'm a sucker for breakfast foods! I could literally eat breakfast for well, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I love that breakfast foods allow you to get in carbs, good fats, protein, and veggies, all in one dish. Which is exactly what this breakfast casserole is perfect for!
Healthy Protein Packed Egg Salad
Ever need a solid dose of protein, but aren't in the mood for something heavy like meat? This light and refreshing egg salad is one of my favorite lunches.
Balsamic Baked Brussel Sprouts
These balsamic brussel sprouts are one of my favorite things to have when I'm craving something salty and a little bit filling for a snack, or to accompany my main course. They are the absolute tastiest way to get in a serving of veggies each day. So easy and can make ahead of time to warm up in the microwave throughout the week. Enjoy this recipe!
In my humble opinion, sweat and a smile are the sexiest things a person can wear.
