Black Bean and Corn Burger

As you all know I am a home care nurse. One of my patients lives about an hour from where I live, luckily my Aunt and Uncle live only 20 minutes from my patient so when I work with this little lady I stay at my aunt and uncles! So for the past 5 days I’ve been hanging out with my aunt, uncle and cousin!

Since I convinced my aunt to try out the Advocare 24 Day Challenge I’ve been giving her lots of inspiration for healthy meals. The other night we made the most delicious burgers!!

I enjoyed my burger with pepper jack cheese, a tomato slice, lettuce as the bun and some BBQ sauce!!! It was so good and SOOO filling! I will definitely be making these again! The best part…. they are advocare friendly!

I hope you guys try these and enjoy them!

Treat Yourself Tuesday #7

I’m stopping just in time for Treat Yourself Tuesday!

Treat-Yourself-Tuesday-Badge

If you are interested in hearing about how #treatyourselftuesday began check it out here. Becky is a firm supporter of treating ourselves even in the smallest ways. It can be with shopping, working out, sweet treats…. anything that is for you!

I realize it has been a week since I last posted. This week has been busy. Last week I worked 63 hours in 6 days! I know insane… I was in between going casual at the hospital and starting at my new home care job. This weak shouldn’t be as busy. I did manage to treat myself a couple times during my busy week!

Boxing

For Christmas I got a groupon from my parents for one month of unlimited boxing classes at Title Boxing. Both my parents and I fell in love with the classes and decided to sign up on a family plan! I got a free pair of gloves! Boxing is such an amazing workout. It is a high intensity sweat fest 🙂

Advocare Friendly Food

I am still doing my Advocare 24 Day Challenge. I will admit it has been very hard to eat 100% clean but I’ve been doing pretty good about sticking to the clean eating. I found the time to make two yummy recipes last week.

Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

I simply mixed 1 package ground turkey, 1 egg, 1/4 cup oats, half an onion copped, 1/2 red pepper chopped, 1 jalapeño chopped. I baked the meatloaf muffins in a muffin tin at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. These babies were packed with flavor and so delicious. I will definitely be making them again. I made some beef meatloaf muffins for Scott and he told me he loved them!

Lemon Pasta Salad

I combined 1 package cooked brown rice noodles, diced baked chicken thighs, 1 can rinsed chickpeas, 1/2 cup chopped black olives, 1/2 cup chopped banana peppers, 1 jalapeño chopped, 1/2 red pepper chopped, 1/2 onion chopped, 1 head of broccoli chopped and one jar of Simply Lemon salad dressing (found in the fridge section).

Both recipes turned out amazing!!!

More Spark

I made the mistake of making Scott try my Spark and he of course LOVES it! I had to order more spark! I ordered cherry and grape and can’t wait to try them. I’m trying to decide which flavor is my favorite so I can order a tub.
