Food to keep you fit, lean, healthy and on track.

Egg White Frittata

I wanted to share a new Healthy option from the Frozen Food Section.

It is an Egg White Frittata, with Spinach and Roasted Tomato, and the nutrients are really good (with a smaller amount of sodium than most frozen foods). Plus I think it tastes great.

Each box contains 160 calories, 16 carbs, 5 fiber and 10 grams of protein.

Kelly Mahaney found this one (am Boot Camp) and brought me a box to sample. So don’t thank me, thank Kelly.

It’s just one of a hundred reasons why I love the Gritton’s Training System Family. Everyone wants to share and help others achieve good results.

Here is what it looks like (she found it at Kroger, in the frozen food section).

Grilled Tilapia

I wanted to share a really great looking recipe from Brian Cagle. I love Tilapia so I know it’s going to taste great.

He shared this with me a couple of days ago, so I asked him to send the directions and ingredients. Brandy and I are going to try it this week for sure.

Ingredients:

  • Grilled Tilapia Fillets
  • Diced Pepper (red, green, or yellow) whatever you prefer
  • Diced Onions
  • Spinach Leaves
  • Olive Oil
  • Lemons
  • Seasoning (Paprika or Lemon Pepper, Brian used one on each filet)

On a square piece of foil, spread out one table spoon of olive oil. Place a palm sized amount of the Onions and Pepper on the foil. Lay a few spinach leaves down and place the filet on top. Add a little lemon juice, or the seasoning of your choice on top. Fold the foil over the filet and grill for 7-8 minutes, or until fish begins to flake.

I hope everyone enjoys the fish, it certainly looks tasty and I know you are getting some really great nutrients in the process.

Muffin Pizza

Here is a great lunch recipe, and especially for anyone who will be having the kids home starting next week.

It has a ton of protein, 24 grams to be exact, and kids will definitely like the taste.

High-Protein English Muffin Pizza

  • 1 Thomas’ Light Whole Grain English Muffin
  • 1/3  cup of Sargento 2% Reduced Fat Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • ½ cup 2% Cottage Cheese
  • 1/3 cup  of Hunts Tomato Sauce

Total for the Meal: 301calories, 8.5fat grams, 35carbs, 24 grams of protein

Directions: (note, there may be a little bit too much of the cottage cheese for the two halves, just eat it separately or reduce the amount to ¼ a cup instead of ½ cup). Best if cooked in toaster oven/regular oven (microwave makes it soggy)

  1. Split the English muffin in half
  2. Spread shredded cheese, cottage cheese and tomato sauce over each half piece (make sure the shredded cheese is on top of the muffin then cottage cheese and then the sauce, if the sauce is on top of muffin it gets soggy)

Hope everyone will give it a try.

P.S.

This is probably not a great dinner recipe, only because its a little higher on the carb count. Try to focus on lean cuts of meat (chicken and fish mostly) and veggies for dinner and watch your body-fat drop really quickly.

Spicy Chicken Recipe

Here is a high protein recipe I hope ya’ll enjoy. It’s pretty easy to make and it will ensure your body is burning fat at night instead of taking a high carbohydrate meal and storing it. I’ve had at least a dozen people tell me they loved the taste.

It’s a little too spicy for my taste, but I think many of you will really like  it.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken (serves four)

This is a a little more spicy than I like, but I believe a lot of you will enjoy it.

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2tbsp butter (yes…I said butter, but its small)
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsps garlic powder
  • 3 tbsps lime juice

1. In a small bowl mix together, salt, black pepper, cayenne, paprika, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, onion powder, thyme and parsley. Sprinkle spice mixture generously on both sides of chicken.

2. Heat butter and olive oil in a large skillet, over medium heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about 6 minutes on each side. Sprinkle with the rest of the garlic powder and and lime juice. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently to coat evenly with sauce.

Chicken and Veggie Recipe

I wanted to share a new recipe with everyone today.

It really delicious, but best of all…its easy to make. So many times a healthy recipe requires 12-15 steps in preparation, but this one only has 5 (one of which isn’t even necessary).

I found the recipe on food.com (along with several others I plan to test out for you soon). I love being the guinea pig 🙂

Here are the Ingredients:

  • 2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1/2 green pepper (cut into 1″ pieces)
  • 1/2 red pepper (same as above)
  • 1/2 vidalia onion (sliced)
  • 2 small zucchini (sliced)
  • 14ounces of canned diced tomatoes (or the equivalent, with fresh) drained
  • 1-2 garlic clove (minced or crushed) I suggest 1 clove
  • 5-6 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil

Then follow these Directions:

  1. Cut chicken breasts into bite size pieces.
  2. Saute in a hot skillet or fry pan until slightly browned. Then remove. Lower the heat of pan.
  3. Add olive oil, saute garlic and onion until softened and begin to turn translucent, add basil leaves and peppers until they begin to soften. Add zucchini and cook until it begins to turn translucent.
  4. Add tomatoes and cooked chicken until heated through.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste (this one may not even be necessary, in my opinion)

I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did and if you have a recipe you would like to share, go ahead and post it for everyone else to see and try.

If you have lots of great recipes, know how to cook, but are still struggling with your weight or body-fat goals then call or email me and we can schedule a private consultation. It’s a $55 value, but its yours free to determine if all you need is the accountability and knowledge to put together the entire program. Just make sure you let me know  you want to meet. No obligation after that, just a chance for us to uncover and clearly define  your goals, then setup a course of action for you. (404) 625-5778 or jeremy@grittonstraining.com
