Recently I had the opportunity to try out a new workout and I NEED to tell you all about it. It’s called bikerbar(re) and it sounded really intimating to me in concept. bikerbar(re) is a class where ladies hit the bike for a 30 minute ride, and then hit the bar(re) for 30 minutes of a traditional bar(re) workout. Why would that intimidate me? Because I have never been someone that enjoyed, sought out, or regularly attended any spin class… like at all. It’s just never been my thing.
Paleo Recipes with Cam
For my last blog post on Mama Momtourage, I’m going out on a high!! I am giving you a fish, chicken, and tri-tip recipe. What can I say, I’m a nice lady. I hope you all have enjoyed some of my favorite Paleo recipes as much as I have enjoyed sharing them. We are all busy mamas and can all use some new ideas in the kitchen. I hope to come back from time to time to share more awesome ways to make your life a little more healthy and your tummies nice and full.
First up Coconut Chicken!! This is my all-time favorite Paleo chicken. It is super easy, juicy, and yummy.
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbs coconut oil
Mix almond flour, shredded coconut and sea salt together in a bowl. Beat egg in separate bowl. Dip chicken breast in egg and roll in dry mixture. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add coconut oil when hot. Pan fry chicken until fully cooked. If the crust starts to brown and your chicken isn’t fully cooked yet (this will depend on the size of the chicken breast), take it out of the pan and place it in the oven on a baking sheet at 350F for 5-10 minutes covered with foil.
- 2-3 lbs of Tri-Tip
- 1/2 cup of Beef Broth
- 3 tbls of Italian seasoning or 1/2 packet of dry Italian dressing mix (non-paleo)…
- Generous sprinkling of garlic powder
- Sea salt to taste
- 1 tbls of ground mustard
- 2-4 dashes of Hot Sauce (Frank’s)
- Drizzle with Olive Oil
Add broth first, then Tri-Tip. Top with all the spices, hot sauce, and olive oil. Cook on low for 8 hours. If all the broth cooks down add more at anytime.
This is another easy go-to. Simply cut your large side of salmon into 6 pieces and place in a foil boat (meaning sides of foil flipped up to keep liquids in and so that it can be closed). Drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice, and a garlic seasoning (I like one that is a mix of garlic, basil, onion and salt). I close the foil boats and pass them off to the hubby to BBQ. As you can see asparagus or broccoli with mushrooms is our veggie of choice. I simply sauté either or those veggies and mushrooms with olive oil, coconut aminos, and garlic.
These recipes look awesome! For me, the try-tip is a really great recipe because there have been so many times I’ve wanted to make one but didn’t have enough time to BBQ it. Slow cooker…genius!
Thanks so much to Nick and Cam for providing us with healthy tips, recipes, and workouts each Wednesday this January. I hope they come back from time to time with more healthy info for us!
Calm down ladies, he’s taken!
Happy New Year! Sorry this post is so late today, my sequin pants and I had a grand old time last night. Such a good time that I was very very tired this am….
So, in the spirit of new year, new you (don’t really change though, I like you just the way you are) I have a fabulous workout you can do at home while the kiddos are napping or at the gym, wherever really.
I live with a Cross Fit coach! My handsome hubby. Here’s a post just for you by my hubster with some cool moves you can do at home to help get you in shape to run that half marathon or just to wear that super hot mini skirt! I just LOVE this guy!
