Eat Clean


You can work out hours and hours a day but if you go home and eat the same unhealthy food you will never see results and all that time spent at the gym will become a waste of money. To be fit and healthy you must feed your body healthy. There are so many diets out there, your goal should be to figure out a meal plan that fits you best! I chose To become paleo. Or commonly called the cavemen diet. I could go on and on about how much better I feel. Don't look at changing the way you eat as a "diet" which is associated with losing weight, look at is as a lifestyle change, a way to make you feel better. Here are three paleo meal options. Turkey tenderloin with aspargus, zucchini soup with turkey burger and my favorite almond butter chia seed cookies! If you would like a meal plan I would be happy to help! Email me at alycialykins@gmail.com. I figured out all this the hard way and I would love nothing more than to help you be healthy and happy the right way! 


Dinner #1 - Turkey Tenderloin and Asparagus

1 4 oz turkey tenderloin ( Trader Joe's) 
10 stalks of Asparagus 
1 tbs olive oil

* Set your oven for 35o degrees. Spray a baking sheet with no stick spray. Place the turkey and asparagus on the baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and top with your favorite spices. Then bake for about 20-30 minutes or until the Turkey is fully cooked. ( My turkey and asparagus was frozen before hand so it took about 35 minutes to cook.) I topped mine with low sodium salsa.

{single serving)

Dinner # 2- Zucchini Soup with Turkey Burger

1 large zucchini diced
1 package of 99% lean turkey burger
1 diced tomato
1 diced red pepper
1 package of frozen spinach
1 low sodium can of salsa
2 c of water

* Place all ingredients in a deep skillet, if you don't have a skillet you can use a boiling pan. Cover the pan or pot and let the ingredients boil, once boiling reduce to a simmer until burger is cooed and the vegetables are very tender. I added garlic powder and about 1tsp of sea salt to mine.

{serves 4)

Desert - Almond Butter Chia Seed Cookies

3/4 c almond butter
2 c almond flour
3 tbs chia seeds
1 c diced apple
1/3 c stevia
1/4 c almond milk
2 eggs
1 tbs cinnamon

* Put all ingredients in a food processor, mix until smooth. Scoop out dough onto 1 sprayed baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Its that easy! i store mine in the freezer.

{ makes about 2 dozen cookies if you make the cookies small}
